Digital developments from Canberra 31

It was a short working week, but there was lots of action in Canberra: a TikTok ban, news of the cybersecurity strategy and a new robotics strategy, online safety, Medicare, Centrelink, military satellites, and more.

Here are the digital developments from Canberra I’ve noticed since the previous edition on 31 March.

I’m posting this Thursday lunchtime, so if anything gets dropped before the Easter long weekend, and there’s always a chance, I’ll post it next episode.

Please let me know if I’ve missed anything, or if there’s any specific items you’d like me to follow. Parliament is now on a break until Tuesday 9 May, which will be Budget Night. I’ll publish these posts whenever there’s enough to report.

If you’ve been finding this series of posts useful, please consider throwing a tip into the tip jar.
