The Alliance Welcomes the Institute for Responsible Online and Cell-Phone Communications

The Net Literacy Alliance Welcomes the Institute for Responsible Online and Cell-Phone Communications (  


The Institute for Responsible Online and Cell-Phone Communication (I.R.O.C.2) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a new way of social thinking as it relates to the use of digital technologies and responsibility. The Institute’s acclaimed “Sexting Is Stupid” program has been developed by individuals with over 100 years combined education and school administration experience as well as, but not limited to, information technology and juvenile safety experts, general and child psychology specialists, and child advocacy legal counselors.

The I.R.O.C.2 is dedicated to proactively communicating our concept of safety, self responsibility, self accountability and the devastating and life altering consequences that can occur when failing to apply our concept of “Digital Responsibility” or “Responsibility 2.1CTM” while using the internet, cell phones and other digital technologies.

The organization’s creation is based on overwhelming public evidence that many individuals are not aware of the short and long term consequences of their own actions when utilizing our world’s rapidly evolving digital technologies irresponsibly.

“What makes our program different from many private and public organizations dedicated to internet safety is our approach,” says Executive Director Richard Guerry.  “We are the only organization that is committed to the proactive direct expert communication of Digital Responsibility (2.1C) to a new generation and do not use reactive old school threats, reprimand and third party curriculum that is ineffective.”
