Fighting Cybercrime and Abuse

Rather than just fret about the internet or try to somehow stop it, there are people who are working to make it a safer environment than it is at present, especially for kids.

One person who stands out in this effort is Parry Aftab, an attorney and internet activist. I met Parry at a Media Ecology Association convention several years ago, where we presented her with our Jacques Ellul Award for Outstanding Media Ecology Activism.

You can check out her professional website by clicking on her name, and note the banners at the bottom with links to WiredSafety.org, and WiredKids.org, and note the further links to explore.
