PBS’s Frontline visited the giant BlogHer conference of women bloggers in Chicago, July ’09, and interviewed a number of speakers and bloggers, including ConnectSafely co-director Anne Collier (on all that’s going on in videogames), author and New York Times Motherlode columnist Lisa Belkin, and Free Range Kids author and blogger Lenore Skenazy (who recently contributed to this site, too). See Anne’s Advice for Parents in Frontline’s latest project on life online: Digital Nation.
