May 29, 2009 - PRLog -- Can anyone answer this question PLEASE?

Why is it that Cyber Bullying and Sexting are only now receiving government, media and corporate attention when they are issues that have existed for years?

Every day there seems to be another unbelievably frustrating new article titled, "Sexting Invades Schools" or, "Sexting: New trend for teens sending sexual texts".

Wake Up America!

The real fact is, sexting has already claimed the lives and reputations of thousands of people long before the recent explosion of media and seminars were created. In fact, if you are just starting to learn about or address sexting and cyber bullying, you are way behind in understanding and / or educating society about the real current digital diseases.

Do you know tens of thousands of times a day private digital content is being stolen from "password protected" social sites, file sharing sites, file storage accounts, personal computers, and digital (video) camera cards?

Did you know that this same content is being exploited across the “dark” areas of the web as free adult content on pornographic websites and message boards?

If you did not know this, not only are you way behind in understanding digital disease, but depending on your lifestyle, you may also unknowingly already be a victim.

Sexting and Cyber Bullying need to be addressed, but so do other extremely more dangerous current (and future) trends. The Institute for Responsible Online and Cell-Phone Communication in one organization with the foresight to think ahead as they exclusively created and communicate nationally an effective proactive “cure” or solution to both current and future (yet to be developed) digital diseases.

Can anyone answer this question?

How will society handle the next "trend" like SEXTCASTING to hit the headlines? Or the next one after that?

Will we  just continue to react to each new issue on a case by case basis as each new travesty presents itself?

Clearly this would be an incredibly naive and ignorant way to continuously deal with 21st century digital diseases. A reactionary approach to 21st century issues is failing our generation, and thousands of lives are being altered instantly while we wait for outdated programs to react to old (but recently reported) digital trends.

While this article is being written, tens of thousands of lives are being altered by other, more dangerous trends online.

There are much worse digital diseases than sexting, and as society continues to react, react, react, to each new digital disease revealed by the media, tens of thousands of lives (children, adults and couples) are being devastated. It is time for our generation to understand that proactive communication and not a continuous pre-21st century reactionary approach to digital issues is what will save our digital generation, and generations to follow.

The Institute for Responsible Online and Cell-Phone Communication (I.R.O.C.2) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a new way of social thinking as it relates to the use of digital technologies and "Digital Responsibility" 2.1C.

We as a nation need to provide direct proactive communication of Digital Responsibility (Responsibility 2.1C) to a new generation. We cannot be reactionary treating today's digital issues, and we cannot resolve them with 20th century threats, reprimand and curriculum. The real problem is our youth has grown up learning what we call responsibility 1.0 or offline responsibility. They do not understand the scope of the repercussions when they invoke poor (digital) judgment because they have not been proactively taught 21st century digital responsibility or what we call, Responsibility 2.1C. We cannot apply 20th century solutions to 21st century issues."
