I wish I had known that Ralph Yarro was speaking at a UITA event in my neighborhood today. (I’m going to build an RSS scrape of the UITA site so I don’t miss anything in the future.) Ralph is the CEO of Think Atomic, an Internet incubator company whose primary focus right now is CP80. I’ve blogged about CP80 before, a technology solution to pornography.
I met Ralph Yarro at the Utah Valley Business Expo last week and was impressed by how strongly he feels about fighting pornography. I admit I didn’t know who he was until I got home and looked him up on Wikipedia and Groklaw. He has a long, colorful history in the Utah tech industry.
And I forgot to mention previously that a Think Atomic employee told me at the Expo that they are working with the NSA and FBI to build a IP-to-geo database of people who publish pornography. They were using a Google Maps mashup to display the locations.
