An talk with Elza Dunkels, Swedish researcher on youth and the internet

This is a talk I recorded using Skype Video with Elza Dunkels, a Swedish researcher and lecturer on youth and their use of the internet and social media (from a safety standpoint). Elza Dunkels works at the University of Umeå in northern Sweden.  She is of part Latvian descent, her late father was a distinguished mathematician and teacher, Andrejs Dunkels and her younger brother, Adam Dunkels, was recently featured on this blog, talking about how the arrival of more and more machines on the internet will change things and present opportunities.

If Latvia comes up a few times, it is because I intended to use the soundtrack of this video for a Q&A style interview (transcribed and translated to Latvian) for the business website www.nozare.lv.  Also, Adam Dunkels' late father, the mathematician and physicist Andrejs Dunkels, was born in Latvia,
