Virginia Youth Internet Safety Task Force...

....was formed last Monday, by VA Attorney General Bob McDonnell. It claims leaders from the community, AOL and Yahoo, law enforcement. First meeting is July 14th - all the press has simply been about the group and the meetings, probably not a lot will actually get done (outside of nice press releases) unless there's a good bit of funding to be appropriated and controlled by this group.

Other news: MySpace was sued last week by a teenager alleging she was assaulted by a man she met on the social networking site...that should force them to get tougher about "opt-in" restrictions.
