Family Online Safety Institute


The Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA) now is known as (part of) the Family Online Safety Institute. The website for FOSI is this The ICRA is actually a subdirectory of fosi, here.

ICRA is still a small organization, which appears to be headquartered in Britain with offices around the world. The labeling system still works as it did before when testing, although the appearance of the website has changed somewhat.

I still believe that content labeling, in conjunction with big time cooperation from browser and operating system vendors, should be a major strategy in "having your cake and eating it too" -- making the Internet safer for minors when adults need full freedom of expression.
