Internet Thought Leaders Address CE Week Audience

CE Week Internet Safety Tools and Strategies

Come on, ‘fess up: Each of us knows someone that’s done something really regrettable on the Internet. Maybe it’s not on the Anthony Weiner scale, but a wrongly-worded email, unintended recipient, infidelity, or a rant about the boss can have huge consequences for kids and adults alike.
At the recent CE Week event, we brought attention to the some of the new issues and the new tools designed to help create a safer (and less regrettable) experience…
  • See a demo of whatswhat.me, a program that makes use of facial recognition to keep kids safe inside their community.
  • Learn about Ohanarama, the first intergenerational social network for grandparents and their grandchildren.
  • Explore WhyVille, a decade-old social network for tweens, and see how they solve problems collectively while having fun.
  • Finally, meet Wayne Green from Intel, and find out how Intel views a kid-safe PC as an entire ecosystem. McAfee’s Stanley Holditch shows how education and tools combine to combat internet trouble.
Despite the creative solutions, the plot thickens. Hemanshu Nigam, a former prosecutor with the Department of Justice, leads a riveting discussion about sexting, what it is and why people do it.  He’s joined by danah boyd, from Microsoft Research, Jack McArtney from Verizon, and Michelle Chisolm from Sprint, who offer some tremendously important insight on how we need to manage this issue so that we’re not convicting minors for sexting, since they are the very people we seek to protect. This multi-part video explores the youth culture, it’s attraction to celebrity, and how that interplays with the rise in risky Internet behavior. ( part 2, part 3, part 4, and part 5).
The outcome of debates like these affect all of us and all of our businesses. A misspent moment on the Internet should never ruin your day, week, or life, and our industry needs to make sure that we’re doing our part to optimize the good outcomes.
