In the first episode of the Edict’s Spring Series 2021, we meet Justin Warren, “consultant, freedom of information tragic, hexagon enthusiast, and creator of the CyberRating™ labelling scheme”.

We talk about freedom of information and hexagons, naturally. But we also talk about systems, surveillance, cybersecurity, robodebt, regulating the internet, bullying and the elite private school experience, dreams, scientific rationalism, The Matrix, cyber penguins, Metropolis, and of course Scott Morrison’s magical climate action plan and “The Australian Way”.
