Connected to the film will be a new digital project called Future Now, a website designed to showcase the knowledge and expertise found in the TVO documentary projects, Life After Digital (http://tvofuturenow.com).

Future Now will feature new content each week that draws from the interviews and issues addressed in the documentaries. They will be tweeting some of the highlights, mentioning documentary participants where appropriate. They have invited participants to retweet, or even join in the broader discussion, perhaps arguing where they are wrong, and got the issue out of context, or where further elaboration is desired. They will be using the hashtag #TVOFutureNow and will mention specific twitter handles where appropriate.

The UK is clamping down on revenge porn with jail terms. Why can’t the US? | Annmarie Chiarini | Comment is free | theguardian.com

“America’s lax response to this heinous crime means I and many other victims have nowhere to turn, and continue to be shamed by law enforcement officials.”

Will Nevada Join States That Ban Revenge Porn? | KNPR

Hi all,

After the tremendous success in seeing legislation criminalizing Revenge Porn passed in Maryland, I took a much-needed media/posting/writing hiatus.

I have returned and had the pleasure of speaking on KNPR’s State of Nevada radio show to discuss the issue of Revenge Porn legislation in Nevada.

One of the guests was a Nevada attorney who violently opposes the efforts of the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, stooping so low as to call us a bunch of angry women with dumb ideas. As well, he claimed to support victims – even going to far as to say he took on their emotions, yet very adamantly stated that if revenge porn is criminalized in Nevada, he will provide defense for the perpetrators, the people who post the images without consent with the intent to destroy lives.

Take a moment to listen to the show and post a comment – we’d love to hear your views on Revenge Porn criminalization.

“The story usually goes like this. A woman sends a nude photo of herself to her boyfriend, imagining that the image will stay private. Time goes on, the romance disintegrates and the woman ends the relationship.

The man, outraged at having been jilted, then takes the intimate photos and posts them on a porn website. Or maybe he emails them to the woman’s employer. Maybe he tries to auction them on ebay.”

Bill Signed Into Law Making Revenge Porn A Misdemeanor « CBS Baltimore

“ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Added protections from harassment due to broken relationships are signed into law.

Pat Warren reports revenge porn is now a punishable offense.

Annmarie Chiarini’s bad breakup has helped change the way the state views intimate Internet postings.

In a WJZ investigation, Chiarini goes public with her experience as a victim of revenge porn. She tells WJZ an ex-boyfriend posted explicit pictures of her on the Internet. He had taken the pictures with her permission, but posted them in revenge after she broke up with him.

“There I was, and there was my first and last name, and there was the town where I live, and there was the college and the campus where I teach, and there was a solicitation for sex,” she said.”
