Notes of a Binge Thinker

Thoughts from NTLP's Executive Director

New York Public Library, Patrons and Porn

Here is a blog entry from Gizmodo, a Gadget blog.  The blog post is PG-13 so be prepared for some racy language as you read it.  Here is one quote from the blog post.

But, the NY Post reports, NYPL rep Angela Montefinise thinks everyone’s favorite part of the Bill of Rights includes PornHub: “In deference to the First Amendment protecting freedom of speech, the New York Public Library cannot prevent adult patrons from accessing adult content that is legal.”

The blog post actually does a pretty good job summing up an issue we have all faced since computers with internet access were made available to the public.  Where does the right to free speech end?  I am always amazed how this issue will brought up again.  It seems like every six months some media outlet will carry an article or blog entry about the topic. 

By the way, read the comments after the entry.  This is a great way to get a taste of what people are thinking about any issue.    It is like a free focus group without the work.

BTC, where do you stand on the issue?  What should our policy be when it comes to Internet Porn?  What is the right image to present to the public so the library is not seen as just a place where people go to watch porn?
