And in a final, resounding demonstration of the technical incompetence and complete lack of understanding of the current Australian Government, Crown Senatorial Twitrocket Stephen Conroy gave media outlets an hour and a half notice on Tuesday, December 15th
2009 that a press conference was to be held to announce that the Great Aussie Firewall will be legislated into existence
in the new year.
Despite abysmal results in the the "pilot" program run earlier this year, and the admission that any technically competent individual could easily circumvent the "filters" (among other astounding failures - see the full article), Australian ISPs will be forced to deny access to any overseas website "refused classification" by the Australian Communications and Media Authority at the network level.
All hail Chairman Rudd.
