Clean Feed

Just sent this message to Lindsay Tanner (Federal Finance Minister) on Facebook, where I am his friend:

G'day Lindsay,

I know you're a busy man, and this is not your area, but I'm not friends with Stephen Conroy here on Facebook.

Anyway, I'm not sure if you've been following the "Clean Feed" discussion, debate, whatever you want to call it.

The whole thing is making many of my IT industry, social networking, podcasting friends very, very annoyed.

The whole thing is technically flawed and unlikely to ever work. Not to mention insulting to adults who presumably can make up their own minds about what they'd like to look at on the 'net.

And then today I read that anyone who links to a banned site can be fined thousands of dollars. And that parts of the very interesting site Wikileaks are on the list.

Look, I'm not sure who's idea this was, but that Stephen Fielding thinks its a good idea should tell you that is in fact is not.

If you could have a word to your cabinet colleagues... Tell them the Nerds are feeling aggrieved and restless.

Thanks. BTW, very impressed with the work you're doing in your portfolio.
