Ah, compulsory Australian Government Internet Filter. Why won’t you die? Oh, that’s right — because you’re still part of government policy. At the NBN three year rollout launch today, Senator Stephen Conroy was asked about the progress of the Internet Filter. His response didn’t say much, but it was rather worrying.
His response was essentially that while he was happy with the ISPs that had adopted the Interpol Internet filter, and that he was still in consultation with industry bodies, he “didn’t want to spoil the surprise” regarding the filter. He smirked (not pictured above) when he did this.
That makes me rather nervous.
