Yesterday Channel 8 News stopped by Schrock Innovations‘ Lincoln Service Center to talk about the Amber Alert that was issued yesterday for a 15 year old girl.

It seems she was playing Second Life and met a 30-year old man from New York.  He was nice enough to drive from New York to Nebraska to have “coffee” with her.

Luckily, the two were found in Arkansas.  It seems they had made plans to run away together.

Here are some tips for parents who are concerned about their kids on the Internet:

    Nice job on the segment Thor!, And you are absolutely right about programs like Cyber nanny, there are alot of smart kids who can get around them easily!

    Definitely a scary scenario and one all too possible today as we see it happen often. You raised some very valid points there, Thor. Good segment.

    I have been using KidZui for over a year and my kids love it.

    “KidZui is a closed system, not filter-driven, so all content that’s available has been approved by editors into a whitelist database. Kids can explore the Internet by using the search/URI bar, or search by a left-nav sidebar that’s organized by topics including science, movies and TV, games, sports, and animals. Just below the search bar are three tabs, for Web browsing, Photos, and Video. The latter two work much like Google’s Image and Video searches, where you type what you’re looking for into the URI bar and the tab automatically narrows it down to the specific type of content that you want.”
