See the following announcement about some Google Hangout fora that are
going to be held to revisit CIPA ten years later. They're scheduled for
next week!



The American Library Association (ALA) and Google, Inc., will host national
library, education, technology, legal and policy experts for a national
symposium considering the impact of the Children’s Internet Protection Act
(CIPA) on access to electronic information July 29 and 30. Librarians
nationwide can join the virtual conversation with two Google Hangouts on
July 30.

The first Hangout will start at 11:00a.m. EDT and focus on an “Introduction
and Overview of CIPA 10 Years Later.” The second one will share “Symposium
Themes and Conclusions” starting at 12:15 p.m. EDT. Participants will join
a wide range of experts as they share insights looking at legal, ethical,
and political implications of how the CIPA requirements have been
implemented in the past 10 years. Did CIPA meet its intended goals, and
have there been unintended consequences?

*“Revisiting the Children’s Internet Protection Act: 10 Years Later”* is
part of ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP) and Office
for Intellectual Freedom’s (OIF) larger project on CIPA and access to
information, made possible through support of Google, Inc. A white paper
will be released this fall.

Here’s how to join the conversation:

   - You can watch the live stream directly on YouTube on the ALA
   Washington Office channel (
   https://www.youtube.com/user/ALAWashingtonOffice/). ALA will tweet the
   URL using #CIPA_ALA13 at 10:45am EDT, right before the Hangout goes live.
   - You can also tweet @oitp <https://twitter.com/oitp> using our hash tag
   #CIPA_ALA13. We’ll be watching the Twitter feed and passing these comments
   to the speakers, as well.

Participants are encouraged to actively share their experiences,
reflections and questions via tweets and online comment boards. ALA will
use the back-channel conversation to inform our ongoing work on libraries
and the impacts of filtering on access to information.

The Hangouts also will be archived on the ALA Washington Office
after the event.
