Hi all!

This week on Outriders we have more mixed treats on the podcast from choices in tracking, a place for kids and schools, a new show for makers and the wisdom of the World of Warcraft raiders.



First up, Alex Fowler Global Privacy and Public Policy Leader at Mozilla explains "Do not track" and why we may choose to stop advertisers aiming their targeted adverts at us.





Becky Stern tells us all about the brand new Make Live show online - streaming over the web to share makers' tales and good examples. Definitely one to watch when it happens or indeed on their archive.




Thanks this week to Rebecca Mullen for writing in about CyberBuddies. Rebecca won a competition to put her ICT teaching skills with junior school kids to the test and create an arena for learning and fun that is safe.




Last but not least - ever wonder what the World of Warcrafters mean when they say they are going raiding? Ladan Cockshut is a Wow player and raider and she is studying that activity specifically for her Phd at Durham University. Thanks to Mark Ward of the BBC Technology pages for this one. You can read more about the topic via Mark's report for BBC News.


That's all for this week - but as usual, keep 'em coming and be sure to let me know what has been clicking with you online. You can email me at outriders at bbc dot co dot uk, search for Outriders on Facebook for updates or send a little tweet to me on twitter where we are BBC_Outriders.

Until next week!
