Quote: Beware of the dark side of Japan’s Mobile Internet World


“Being able to get on the Net via a cell phone encourages delinquency and deviation. Even when children don’t have wayward intentions, they are easily lured to harmful sites through devious methods.”

This advice was given by a professor in the Graduate School of Social and Information Studies at Gunma University in an article for Shukan Bunshun (a weekly Japanese magazine, web site in Japanese only).

The professor is very skeptical if Japanese parents are able to “control” their kids’ surfing behavior on the mobile Internet.
