A good response from the Australian Internet Blackout campaign on Australia Day (invasion day, for others) last week.
According to somebody think of the children, 455 websites took part in the campaign to stop the Federal Government helping Australia to join China, Iran and others that we tend to criticise relentlessly, in censoring and filtering the Internet, mostly to please paedophile obsessed hype-merchants.
I forgot to do it – so a good ten visitors to my blog missed out there – but thankfully some forward thinking souls at both The Greens and The Australian Democrats helped get the political message out.
As it stands, the plans are ill thought out, costly, and far from foolproof .
