A Little Bit of Politics

Did you know that there is an Australian non-profit organisation representing Internet users concerned with on-line freedoms and rights? Neither did I until Anthony Baxter made passing reference to Electronic Frontiers Australia in a post about the latest idiotic internet censorship policy proposal from the ALP.

Anyone whose stated aims include "... to protect and promote the civil liberties of users and operators of computer based communications systems such as the Internet, to advocate the amendment of laws and regulations in Australia and elsewhere (both current and proposed) which restrict free speech and to educate the community at large about the social, political, and civil liberties issues involved in the use of computer based communications systems" gets my vote.

I've joined, shouldn't you?
