Podcast: Harvard Law's John Palfrey on Internet Safety Task Force Report

Larry Magid sits down with John Palfrey in Washington, DC just before he delivered the Internet Safety Technical Task Force Report.

Harvard Law Professor and former Berkman Center director John Palfrey has been a busy guy. For most of the past year he has chaired the Internet Safety Technical Task Force which, as I explain in this longer post , just released a report showing that predator danger for kids is not what a lot of people feared.

I sat down with Palfrey Washington DC on Wednesday January 14th just before he took the stage at the State of the Net conference to deliver the task force's final report.

As I disclose in the podcast, I was a member of that task force, representing ConnectSafely.org, a non-profit Internet safety group I co-direct.
