LAS VEGAS - There's a new game in town that CyberSpacers of all ages will want to participate in, with all the excitement of interactive videogames and a television series where real cyberspacers are the stars of the show.
In an effort to promote responsible cybercitizenship, one user-friendly organization is gearing-up to reach Internet surfers of all ages. The plan of the group aptly named, CyberSpacers, has a lofty set of goals that focus on a positive approach to solving Internet crime.
Beginning by establishing positive cyber ethics in youngsters, at home and in the schools, they offer lesson plans for teachers, tips for parents and a support system for schools online.
To deliver the message of safe cyber ethics, the CyberSpacers introduce a group of virtual superheroes making up the Defenders Online Team, led by the Superman/computer-clone, SuperMC the superhero alter-ego of a Magic Computer.
Talk about interactivity, the CyberSpacers Team cannot fight cybercrime and battle Interent villians without the assistance of a real life CyberSpacer. One real life member of the CyberSpacers will be selected to appear in each episode of the CyberSpacers as they battle e-crime. The fantasy episodes are all in preparation for the television series that will also feature the young CyberSpacers as guest stars, featuring a new kid selected each week.
What does it take to become a member of the CyberSpacers? Simply taking the oath and registering with the site and each member receives his or her own CyberSpacers membership kit complete with official membership card.
This Web site is indeed an exciting concept, to establish a safer Internet from within itself, rather than to legislate any level of cyber-conduct. The youth of today have more powerful technology at their fingertips than ever before and the headlines of kids being arrested for Internet crimes is proof of that.
To help combat Internet crime, the CyberSpacers have launched an Internet Anti-hacking Campaign with a more positive approach than jailing young people.
The site also honors webmasters who create CyberSpacers-compliant Web sites.
