Gates keeps close eye on kids’ computer time | CNET News.com

Interesting article on how the king of the PC world handles computer time with his kids.  I wonder what Scoble’s opinion is on this subject – I know his son is a little older (but I don’t think much from what I have gathered), but he seems to spend quite a bit of time with his Mac.

My opinions are similar to Gates’ while a child is young I believe they need to have a variety of experiences with the computer/internet being part of it, but only a part.  My experience has been that kids today seem to be less interested in the outdoors and exploring the "real" world around them and instead are glued to the computer/tv/game console/cell phone (texting) etc… Perhaps they are just reflecting us, their parents, I don’t know, but I believe that they need to experience the outdoors as well to appreciate the amazing world around them that they have the blessing to live in.
