Bullying – a condition made worse by the use of technology

This link was in my stream this morning ( and it prompted the following thoughts.

We had a discussion in class about the use of technology as an extension of self.  Examples of eyeglasses (a technology) becomes and extension of one’s self, helping the person to see (good thing) but then also opening them up to criticizing/bullying (bad thing).  One of my classmates is working on a paper that is focusing on bullying and how technology (internet) acts as an extension of the bullied/bully (this is my paraphrasing).
