ABSTRACT
I was halfway out my office door on my way to grab a quick swim the other day when the phone rang. Fighting the urge to let it ring, I answered it and found myself talking to a woman from a local radio station asking whether I'd be willing to be interviewed that afternoon. President Bush had just signed the legislation authorizing the creation of the new .kids.us domain, and would I be able to answer a few questions on the air? I had gotten the call because I served as an expert witness in the lawsuit challenging the Children's Internet Protection Act and somebody from the university made the connection. I don't profess to be an expert on the filtering issue per se, but I do know just enough to be skeptical about both the technology and the ideas behind legislation such as CIPA--and the Child Online Protection Act (COPA) and the rest.
