@christopherneal @scottamcintyre Look I’m quite liking the way all this is turning out. And 10 points to @ashabeeeee for baiting the trap.

MarkDiStef Turnbull’s “laws of Australia” over “laws of mathematics” came from a question from ZDNET’s @ashabeeeee: pic.twitter.com/uPbCHAj0mm

@sabbott02 I’ve had time to refine my gripe. ;)

@pblakez Ah I know the thing you mean, but can’t remember.

That spot with @abcperth is done. It should be up as an online thing soon.

@bigmac Oh thanks, Michael. I confuse myself with this stuff sometimes.

Henry_Belot Turnbull: The laws of mathematics are very commendable but the only laws that applies in Australia is the law of Australia.

What time is Turnbull’s press conference today? Do we know yet?

via TweetDeck

@BlogsofWar There’s some interesting statements in that news story. I guess I’ll see how it unfolds when Turnbull opens his face today.

@R_Chirgwin Well Soapy’s explanations are not my first source of truth and understanding.

“It’s not an attack on mathematics,” I wrote, because it doesn’t need to be a head-on attack against encryption itself.

Here’s what I wrote on 28 Jun, after Brandis’ first go at this: “Australia’s encryption thwart thought is fraught” zdnet.com/article/austra…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Fascinating series of quotes in that story, where “encryption” is waved as a Magic Bad Word.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Note that “affected” is an undefined quantity.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

“Turnbull will announce the new laws today, as the Government reveals online encryption has affected 90% of ASIO’s priority cases.”
