Miss America Kid Safe Browser
This post isn't actually related to Web success, but if I didn't mention this you would have to punch a hole in my man card. I'm a dad too so safe Web browsing for Web kids is certainly on my radar and will definitely be a priority for me in the future.
Children's Educational Network (CEN) has partnered with the Miss America Organization (MAO) to create the world's first Miss America Kid Safe Browser. The Miss America Kid Safe Software is built using CEN’s proprietary technology and prevents children from surfing inappropriate web sites, as well as protecting them from online predators.
The software is being offered free online.
"One of my goals, as Miss America 2007, is to heighten the awareness for
protecting our children on the Internet. It is critical for parents to police
their children's keyboards because of the danger of being approached by online
predators. Now I am in a position to offer a solution for free of any cost that
includes an animated version of me that will provide Internet safety tips to
children on a daily basis,” says Lauren Nelson, Miss America 2007.
This is by no means the first kid-safe browser but it could be a real winner as it's definitely the first with this kind of support.
