As part of FOSI's Online Safety Education Initiative 2008 FOSI will hold its third Roundtable on September 17, 2008 at the Googleplex, Mountain View, California, USA.

The Roundtable will follow the screening of the critically acclaimed PBS documentary 'Growing Up Online,' with producer Rachel Dretzen in attendance for Q&A and discussion.

'Growing Up Online' presents a documentary that looks squarely at the realities of children's online lives and how adults are responding to this new world. It tells real-life stories to ask the question: What does it mean to be part of the first generation coming of age steeped in a virtual world seemingly outside parental control? The documentary raises provocative questions about whether the cruelties of adolescence have moved to a new, more intrusive dimension.
