Hi Phil, 

Thanks for the pointer to Annie Mullins, we should wait to hear back from the rest of the group regarding a decision to contact/invite along to speak. 

Regarding the CEOP panic button, I too am not sure about how useful it will actually be, I wonder whether it is simply a way for service providers to cover themselves. Furthermore, I find it heard to contextualise the meaning of the head count of "children saved" on CEOP's homepage but maybe i just don't get it. From a technical point of view, the panic button seems to require way too many clicks before any meaningful content is displayed to the potential victim, perhaps I just have a short attention span, and the fact that I was in no immediate threat when I was clicking about played a massive part in my reasoning.

Thanks for getting back and for the pointer, 

Mischa

The person that comes to mind immediately is Annie Mullins, head of content for Vodafone Global [1]. She's a key figure in online safety in Britain and elsewhere and hugely respected. She's written UK government guidelines on social media before now (the kind of thing that ends up in school curricula).

>> Hello All, Given that we have been given an extension on this XG, I was wondering whether people were interested in including a talk by someone knowledgeable about "Child Protection on the Social Web" (or something). The UK's Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre[1] has recently been on a campaign [3][4] promoting their "Panic Button" [2], which has led facebook to installing it on their profile pages.
>> Would people be interested to hear about such things, and does anyone have any contacts in this space? Danbri mentioned that Phil Archer did some work with the internet content rating alliance (ICRA), on PICS related work for child-protection oriented content labelling (have cc'ed Phil in this email).
>> Do people think this would be an interesting topic for the XG to touch upon?
