New Web safety institute unveiled -ReadWrite Web

The people behind the 7-year-old Internet Content Rating Association, a nonprofit aimed at labeling adult Web sites, have launched a new institute to promote kids safety on the Web.

Called the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI), the group said that it will broaden its work from the ICRA rating system to include the development and support of other kid-safe technologies, educational programs and public policy work.

Every day, there's a story about how people are finding new ways to access pornography and other inappropriate content on the Internet... we need new tools and methods to reach parents and children alike with a new safety awareness.
