Where Are They Now?


Perhaps you have found yourself wondering, "I wonder whatever happened to Katie Sierra, the West Virginia teenager who unsuccessfully fought her high school for the right to wear an antiwar T-shirt and start an Anarchy Club?"

Well, now she's taking on Friendster, which won't let anyone under 18 maintain an account -- a measure apparently enacted to protect "children's rights." It's not completely clear to me whether this rule was Friendster's idea or a restriction forced on the company by the law. Perhaps some member of the Hit & Run commentariat can fill me in.
