Mr Net Nanny awarded by online angels
The CyberAngels -- the advocates of Web-based do-goody vigilantism
-- are to recognise the achievements of Gordon Ross, the man behind
the filtering software Net Nanny.
Not content with simple recognition, these online good guys believe
Ross' contribution to Net life is so important, they're naming him
the 'Internet Humanitarian of the Year'.
Net Nanny blocks or screens objectionable adult material on the
Internet and also prevents the user's address, phone and credit card
numbers from being given out on the Internet.
The presentation will be made next month at the Guardian Angels'
20th Anniversary Celebrations in Central Park, New York City.
"Gordon has always considered people more important than
technology," said Parry Aftab, CyberAngels' executive director.
"He is a strong advocate for free speech on the Internet while still
lobbying for parental choice.
"[Because of this] he has become one of the most caring, generous
and innovative individuals in cyberspace today," he eulogised.
Ross designed Net Nanny to let parents decide what their children
should or should not see on the Net. r
