    Grace, what a nice idea to try to develop tools for kids who are without parents to try to help each other through some form of social networking. I don't know enough about the social problems facing these children, but if there are many of them, it makes sense for them to create their own sub-culture. Many parents help their children by giving them special advantages: for example, if a parent went to a very good college, it will be easier for that parent's child to get in to the same school, even if he or she is not really intelligent enough to be go to that school (for example, George w. Bush). How can orphans, who don't have advocates like parents, compete?

    Grace, you have great ideas, and are very intelligent, but I want you to really focus now on developing an actual product. It's time to get more specific. Let me know if you need extra help in developing your ideas. steven
