WASHINGTON -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Famigo, a company providing safer experiences for children on mobile devices, will be appearing at POLITICO’s Future of Mobile: Imagination, Regulation and the Way Forward event, sponsored by AT&T and TechNet. Famigo COO Matt McDonnell will join FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, Intel Director of Global Public Policy Peter Cleveland and other technology thought leaders for an in-depth panel on the future of mobile technology and policy.

“Mobile technology is evolving at an unprecedented rate, and we need to make sure that the right safeguards are in place to empower and protect families,” said McDonnell. “There is a real tension between the pace at which technology moves and the pace of legislation and policy. As we confront new and interesting challenges from privacy to bullying to the best way to leverage mobile devices for education, Famigo will continue to develop and advocate for best mobile practices and policies. Our goal is simple: advance technology for elementary and early childhood education and to ensure a more enjoyable experience for children on mobile devices.”
