Something is wrong on the internet
> one of the traditional roles of branded content is that it is a trusted source. Whether it’s Peppa Pig on children’s TV or a Disney movie, whatever one’s feelings about the industrial model of entertainment production, they are carefully produced and monitored so that kids are essentially safe watching them, and can be trusted as such. This no longer applies when brand and content are disassociated by the platform, and so known and trusted content provides a seamless gateway to unverified and potentially harmful content.

"Ensuring that every child attains a baseline level of proficiency in reading will do more to create equal opportunities in a digital world than will expanding or subsidising access to high-tech devices and services," it says.

Speaking in LOL Cats
Stephen Downs transcript
Don’t you love these? Can you see how these would become addictive? They’re just incredible, I can’t get over them. What really really really attracts me to the internet is that it is just chock-full of stuff like this. Forget about the Open Educational Resources. Forget about online learning. Forget about Twitter and social networking. The internet is full of stuff like this, and it’s the stuff like this that just kills, and makes the internet what it is. That’s why I love it.
