A couple of days ago Don Wood posted on his blog a link to the video for the Child Safety on Web 2.0: Who Should Protect Our Children presentation at the State of the Net Conference 2007. The presentation is worth watching. The speakers include Anne Collier from Blog Safety.com and the co-author of MySpace Unraveled (which is a positive look at social networking in the lives of teens.)

Along with watching this video it’s also interesting to see what the other topics covered at the conference were. Along with child safety the conference included presentations on copyright, music downloading, and how the Internet changed the way people connect-create-communicate. These are all topics related to the services that we provide teens.

Videos aren’t available for each of the presentations. However, it’s still a good idea to look at what was discussed and who did the discussing. Check out the agenda and the panelists to get an idea of who is framing the conversation about technology and its place in the world in which teens (and librarians) live.
