    AOL has released a statement, saying they aren’t killing off AIM:
     
    “We are not killing instant messenger,” an AOL spokeswoman said toComputerworld late Wednesday afternoon. “We’ll continue to support it and evolve the product.”
     
    Funny thing, though, is that AOL hasn’t evolved AIM in years.  It’s doubtful they’ll do it now since they’ve let the core of the team go.

    Regarding that 12 year old. I’d go bananas on those school administrators if that were my kid.

       @cmaxw You and me both.  Though it wasn’t anything quite like this (more of a bullying problem and the fact that the schools were becoming more like prisons), my wife and I home schooled our children.  I had one graduate at 17 and the other one just a week before his 16th birthday.  My daughter is currently working through the program as well.  I think they turned out just fine and quite brilliant (of course I have to say that).  My youngest son is responsible for version 2.0 of this - http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/
