19th October 2004 ICRA is proud to be a W3C member

ICRA has become an affiliate member of the Word Wide Web Cosortium (W3C) and is now able to join the effort to lead the web to its full potential for all users, especially children. W3C is the body that works with industry to recommend standards for the internet, HTML & XML being the best-known examples. ICRA's particular interests are in the development of the "Semantic Web" and its underlying technologies such as RDF.

W3C Workshop: Metadata for Content Adaptation, Dublin
Phil Archer took part in this workshop and presented the work of the Labelling Working Group as ICRA prepares to move fron PICS to RDF-based labels. Content Adaptation usually means making the same content available for users of different devices, such as desktop PCs and mobile phones; and with different preferences or abilities (so called accessibility). ICRA's position is content adaptation should also take into account the user's - or user's parents' - preferences for types of content.

8th Transatlantic Dialogue
Internet, Standards of Content and the Protection of Minors. Stephen Balkam, ICRA's CEO spoke at this international gathering in Berlin organized by the Media Authority of North Rhine-Westphalia (LfM). This gathering updated interested parties on developments since the issues were debated at the 5th meeting in 2003.

4th June 2004

Two new working groups launched
ICRA has launched two new working groups to review key aspects of its work.

The labelling working group will be investigating alternative methods for labelling. The present PICS-based system can sometimes present logistical and technical hurdles. A more flexible system, probably based on RDF, is being sought.

In parallel, ICRA's descriptive vocabulary, often referred to as "the ICRA questionnaire," is under review. ICRA's principles of creating a cross cultural system that is as objective as possible remains a foundation stone. However, the review will consider media types other than websites delivered to desktops.

Comments are invited for both working groups
