In case anyone’s interested in the fate of the Internet in Australia, I have another post on how the proposed filtering is SUPPOSED to work, but won’t. And, haha, guess what? Even if it DOES work, it won’t prevent any of the government’s identified top-five threats to children online. WTF, K-Rudd, WTF?
(For the uninformed, K-Rudd, AKA the Ruddbot, aka Keven 747, is sometimes known as Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia. In Australia, disrespecting politicians is a national sport.)
There are still no major news stories on this in the Australian media, and the government haven’t released any official details. I’m getting my information from Electronic Frontiers Australia, who have done quite a lot of background research.
