While maintaining the internet as a safe place for all people, particularly children, is very important, current trials in Australia to implement internet filtering at the ISP level concerns me somewhat.
|Conroy Welcomes ISP Filtering|
Having worked in Information Technology for nearly 15 years, and most recently having worked at an ISP, I would be highly concerned about the level of reporting that ISPs may be required to produce.
Also, will such filtering be placed against me, completely against my will? There’s no reporting either way – I certainly hope this is not a step in the direction of government legislated censorship of the internet.
