A man from the not-so-distant future goes back in time to stop the internet from ever having been invented. The internet, as he says, has turned his world into a wasteland; people remain isolated, each on his own computer, flaming each other, speading gossip, watching porn, and doing absolutely nothing else. Warning: some bad language.

Question: Do you think this is where we're headed? Is there any truth in this time traveler's message?

« Back to The Vox Box

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at http://voxxiez.blogspot.com.
