Mister Rogers is taking a stroll in cyberhood

SHARE Mister Rogers is taking a stroll in cyberhood

It's a beautiful day in the cyberhood.

Fred Rogers, the longtime host and creator of the children's TV show "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," has become pretty high-tech for someone who's known for his low-tech trolley and puppets.

He's working on an interactive program for the PBS Web site, which will debut this summer, and he hopes to create a series of children's stories for www.misterrogers.org.

"Technology in any form (from computers to atomic power) can be used for good or evil," Rogers said in ON magazine. "It all depends on the hearts and minds of those who use it."

The 73-year-old taped his final episodes of the show last year after 33 years on television.
