The CyberAngels -- the advocates of Web-based do-goody vigilantism -- are to recognise the achievements of Gordon Ross, the man behind the filtering software Net Nanny. Not content with simple recognition, these online good guys believe Ross' contribution to Net life is so important, they're naming him the 'Internet Humanitarian of the Year'. Net Nanny blocks or screens objectionable adult material on the Internet and also prevents the user's address, phone and credit card numbers from being given out on the Internet. The presentation will be made next month at the Guardian Angels' 20th Anniversary Celebrations in Central Park, New York City. "Gordon has always considered people more important than technology," said Parry Aftab, CyberAngels' executive director. "He is a strong advocate for free speech on the Internet while still lobbying for parental choice. "[Because of this] he has become one of the most caring, generous and innovative individuals in cyberspace today," he eulogised. Ross designed Net Nanny to let parents decide what their children should or should not see on the Net. ®
