Feedback from kids and teenagers
"Everything at K-Net is in some way educational, including their mascot, MegaByte. MegaByte is made out of pure energy and lives inside computers, networks and stiffy and floppy disks. There is a sticker of MegaByte that comes in bits - "a byte is made up of bits" - get it?"
