Ralph Yarro at UITA event

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.

  1. If you do that scraper, let me know. I’d love to have their content syndicated.

    FYI, there’s a guy at Provo Labs that could probably help with this. He did the same thing for LDS.org as part of his project, “Feed Rebel”. Let me know if you’d like his contact info.
