Cyber Teenies

3:00 PM -- The Christian Science Monitor ponders today whether teen blogging is dangerous (for the teens, not, as one might reasonably suppose, for the rest of us). This stat caught our eye:

    Of the world's approximately 38 million "blogs," or self-published Web pages, 52.8 percent belong to those age 19 or younger, according to survey data from the Perseus Co., a maker of Web-surveying software. By year's end, the firm expects the total number of blogs on the Web to reach 53.4 million.

    Meanwhile, Perseus says the typical blogger continues to be a teenage girl who uses the medium primarily to communicate with five to 10 friends.
Monkey demographics were unavailable.
