On Thursday, October 28, 2010, Oklahoma City OpenBeta will be held for the fifth time featuring five minute “lightning talks” by a variety of speakers. Wesley Fryer is scheduled to speak at this event on the topic, “Oklahoma Isn’t China: BalancedFiltering.org.” The short session description is:
Many public schools in Oklahoma practice draconian filtering of Internet content which makes China look permissive in comparison. A social action campaign is needed to advocate for balanced content filtering in our schools which complies with the law, encourages accountability, and helps prepare our students to be responsible digital citizens.
The following is a proposed bio for Wesley, for OpenBeta5:
