Jeff and Adam were two fifteen-year-old boys who were proving quite adept at navigating homo sapiens new jungle in cyberspace. The information age was proving to be just as favorable to the ruthless as the epoch it was replacing. A diminished capacity for empathy has always been a desirable psychological attribute, and these high school freshmen were being s…
