Amy and Sheryl talk more about Sheryl's new job working on social networking for the MacArthur Foundation and HASTAC.
In addition to her work with the MacArthur winners, Sheryl is excited about the potential that social networking has to expand social horizons for Moms.
Then Amy welcomes internet safety expert Linda Criddle back to the show. Linda is the author of the book "Look Both Ways: Help Protect Your Family on the Internet" and the website Look-Both-Ways.com
Amy has gotten to know Linda well over the past year, through interviews for Amy's CNET blog and Linda's trips to give seminars in North Carolina. Linda looks at safety and privacy issues for everybody, from kids to parents to senior citizens, to help people have positive and safe experiences online.

Amy and Sheryl discuss their new jobs. Amy is revising Mojo Mom and Sheryl is working on social networking for the Macarthur Foundation. Life and work mingle as usual, as Amy ponders what it means to have a 9 year old.
Then Amy talks to Debra Levy of Mothers & More, a national organization providing support and advocacy for Moms. Debra also wanted to highlight Mothers & More's campaign to save the American Time Use Survey, which we did not get to discuss on the show. For our work to be counted as significant is first has to be measured, and the ATUS provides this crucial data.
