You'll have a shot at convincing me after you've convinced Walter.  
Personally, I really don't want kids to learn about privacy by virtue  
of having their diary splattered all over the mesh and web because  
things are public by default. I would refuse to use such a computer,  
so I am loathe to give it to others. I am, however, entirely fine  
with a setting somewhere that lets interested kids _change_ the  
default to shared/public for documents.
