Questions from the audience

  • More of a point than a question - the blacklist in Australia that was discussed is not yet in force. The federal government is in the process of trialling a ISP-enforced blacklist to see how it performs but it's well behind schedule, ludicrously easy to get around, and everyone's hoping that they'll give up on the idea. The previous government had simply offered households a free copy of some NetNanny style software, and of the 20 million odd people in Australia only 30,000 households requested the software. Kinda tells you how much we want censorship. Anyway, it's an interesting show (this was my first) so keep up the good work. Derek (Adelaide, South Australia) (4 September 2009)
