The folks at Mozilla (makers of the Firefox browser) have been hard at work developing a web literacy standard. It was released today. In Program or Be Programmed, Douglas Rushkoff called for a basic literacy in computer programming. I believe the web literacy standard can fulfill that mission in a more accessible way by encouraging basic literacy of not only the nuts and bolts of the web, but also cultural and political aspects as well, such as sharing and privacy. The Mozilla site is really worth exploring.
