One last thing about the Coalition’s backflip yesterday from Josh Taylor:
After this weekend’s election, if a future Coalition government had announced its internet filtering plan, all it would have had to do is to point to the original policy document uploaded yesterday and say that it was there for all to see.
Josh Taylor has been doing some absolutely outstanding tech journalism for ZDnet over the last 24 hours.
It’s entirely likely that if Josh hadn’t spotted this buried policy yesterday, it would’ve coasted through without a peep.
So please, if you appreciated knowing about this before the election, or if you’re glad this whole terrible idea seems to be dead and buried (yet again), go say thanks to him on Twitter.
