“Best Practices” Online Safety Panel at Tomorrow’s IGF-USA Event

by on July 20, 2010 · 1 comment

Internet governance is often thought of as ICANN and domain names, but the Internet Governance Forum, a body of the UN, takes a broad approach. Tomorrow I’ll be speaking on a panel about online safety at IGF-USA,  a national body that reports to the full IGF.  We’ll discuss the recent NTIA OSTWG “Youth Safety on a Living Internet” report, among other online safety issues such as sexting, cyberbullying, and proposed state legislation.

UPDATE:  Here’s a summary and video excerpt of my presentation.

Here’s the panel:
