Dear Minister Stephen Conroy,

I'd like to add voice to a growing chorus of disdain.
Please don't implement mandatory filtering of the Internet.

I have three key areas of concern.

1. It will be ineffective and slow down connection speeds for everyone.
2. The government should not decide what I can and can not view in the privacy of my own home.
3. The very concept of "illegal information" needs to be examined.

Software Freedom Day 2008

Software Freedom Day 2008 Melbourne - The Hub AT DocklandsSaturday 20 September is Software Freedom Day. Creative Contingencies is providing pro bono assistance to this year's event management team.

The team has sourced and secured a new venue. The Hub@Docklands is the community centre for Melbourne's growing waterside neighbourhood, which has a great little cinema room. A series of interesting talks covering a range of topics around technology and freedom have been scheduled to run through out the day.

There's also a light filled Atrium where free and open source software demos will showcase the technology. Visitors can take home a CD filled with applications they can use at school, at home or at work.
