@SnarkyPlatypus Je vais commencer par l’ouverture d’une bouteille de cidre. Après cela, je ne suis pas sûr.

@shiftkey My memory is not the best to rely upon, but there was at least some broad “national security is important” blather.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis heureux d’annoncer que c’est vendredi. Dans la mesure où je suis jamais content de rien. Et vous?

@shiftkey @zdnetaustralia Well that’s the thing about representative democracy. We rely on the representatives to do their job.

@FarrellPF @gazzy_d @MsLods Thanks. The committee Hansard won’t have been turned around before my deadline, yet I must rant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to FarrellPF

@gazzy_d @FarrellPF @MsLods Thanks very much. It fits perfectly into a piece I have to file today, about fear and ignorance.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gazzy_d

@rohan_p @MsLods The sense of born-to-rule arrogance coming from certain sections of the government fit poorly with this century.

@jamesroywriter That seems like a sensible move to me, provided the definition of what data is and isn’t retained is clear.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jamesroywriter

So the Attorney-General can decide which submissions to public inquiry will or won’t be published. Open* democracy in action.

Christ, if that senator has failed to notice even the widely-reported stuff about metadata, imagine how well they’ll deal with the nuances.

via Janetter for Mac

If someone could let me know which ornament* to democracy that was, I’d be most grateful. I didn’t have the audio up.

via Janetter for Mac

FFS. A Senator on this inquiry has managed to remain ignorant of the standard example to metadata overreach for three years. Bravo!

via Janetter for Mac

FarrellPF A senator is seriously asking where we find that the RSPCA is able to access telecommunications data. Really need to do more homework.

@ashthoughts @Mvhak @amworldtodaypm Yeah, I see what you’re saying, but to me it felt a tad alarmist. Those devices were already a problem.

Hey @amworldtodaypm, calling Shellshock “a hacker’s doorway to your desktop” is a bit rich. You Do know it doesn’t affect Windows, right?

via Janetter for Mac

Hey @abcnews, Shellshock is not a “virus”, so using that word in your radio news reports just makes you sound stupid.

That link you sent me to story about the hacking? I don’t what you think is wrong with that scenario. I’ve head about this sort of thing.
