Have they (users) come of age yet?

When I go around schools to promote blogging and social software, I usually pose this challenge to educators: Are you ready for the Friendster Generation? Michael Hotrum seems to share my view when he foresees a tsunami in education. Now Stephen Dale asks local governments (in the UK?): "Are you ready for Social Software?"

I'd like to agree: How can they embrace Social Software to "Champion and Channel" when government is inherently about "Command and Control"? This resonates with sounds of an earlier post.
