The UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCISS) is announced. This is a key suggestion from the Byron report (here) , Thanks to a bewildered government that has abandoned intellectual rigour in a desperate search for popularity and a photogenic and intellectually lightweight expert, money will be falling from the skies!
Tanya's report (excuse the familiarity Tanya, but since my taxes went toward the £100,000 you were paid for your study I feel I can name-drop) concluded - well all sorts of things. In summary it reads like a mediocre literature review and statistically insignificant questionnaire, but enough of the detail how does it affect me.
I have been presented with a large group of fearful parents and grandparents who have been told by the Government that they need training in controlling computer access and in purchasing and using "control" software. Ker-ching!
Now, with the setting up of the UKCISS I can produce scary adverts for my services claiming the backing of a Government Council for all the training courses for parents and monitoring software I can produce. Ker-ching! Ker-ching!
