Lunch Time Karma - KidDesktop.com

Today at the Digital Media Conference I randomly chose a table and had great company. Melissa Clark from Siteworx and Dan Werbel. of http://www.kiddesktop.com. As we ate lunch Dan told us about http://www.kiddesktop.com. and how he got the idea from his kid deleting important files by mistakes on his computer. As he described the features I was virtually drooling as these are things any parent wants for their family computer. I got inspired to take a live video interview that 11 other people have seen so far.

Features of kiddesktop.com:

  • Protect your files, pictures, music and other programs. Kids don't even see your desktop so they can't open, change, or delete anything.
  • Simplify computer use with our kid-friendly start screen, customizable Activity Bar, icon-driven features, and spoken help. Your child will love having everything he or she wants to use in one place!
  • Set up a favorite activity once and your child can re-start it without your help. No need to re-type URLs again!
  • Protect your child online by setting browsing limits, preventing downloads, and/or blocking pop-ups on a site-by-site basis.
  • its $29.99 for each computer with no recurring fees. If you had heard Dan talk you would be immediately convinced that you need this for your computer (if you have kids)
