PROVO Dr. Charles D. Knutson tells the story of a man who was worried about his son.
The father said his 20-year-old had blown off the idea of serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Well, he would have served a mission under two circumstances.
The young man wanted to take a laptop computer with him and keep playing "World of Warcraft," an online role-playing game, while serving his mission. That wasn't an option, so the young man didn't go.Knutson, an associate professor of computer science, spoke on "Online Gaming Being Aware of the Dangers and Establishing Safety Guidelines" at BYU Campus Education Week on Aug. 21.
