Monday and Tuesday of last week I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in a Children’s Internet Protection Act Symposium, hosted by the American Library Association and Google in Washington DC.
The first day was pure think-tanking and brainstorming about where to go from here to help school and public libraries better cope with the legislative requirements of CIPA and work toward a future with better legislation.
The second day some of us participated in public Google Hangouts about the issues and our discussions. Those are archived for viewing at your leisure. I participated in the first Hangout and had a blast explaining how filters (don’t) work, what their effectiveness rates are, and how to get around filters.
Both videos are absolutely worth watching and I guarantee you will learn something in each!
