MySpace and Attorney General Task force announced on cybersafety initiatives and investigations

Today MySpace will announce the compilation of an industry and expert task force, as promised in their agreement with the 49 states attorneys general several months ago.

Headed by an esteemed professor from the Berkman Center, it will contain representatives from the industry and other Web 2.0 networks, non-profits and technology providers, among others.

I agreed to join the task force and to work with others to review what is being done and what can be done to make all Internet users safer and better informed.

It's a start. One of many.

wish us luck.
