OLX Network Censorship in Australia

Censorship in Australia

If you havent heard One of our Ministers in charge of communications is pushing a law through the parliment restricting the Internet in Australia. On my OLX page is a pertiton being raised to have this stopped. Please read about it in google and then perhaps pop back and give your support to having this stopped.

Thanks
Gumby

Yep, this is really a messed up situation. Ironic in that LL are “cleaning” up the grid of adult content even now. I am quite sure they have a ton of users from OZ so I would hope they are doing all they can to show the Communications Ministers the changes.

In the meantime I bet we see lots of Australian sign ups with OLG being MA15.

Petition signed (alright, so I had to google an Aus postcode because it would not accept my UK postcode)

I thought some of the comments on Dusan Writer’s blog were pretty interesting. The general opinion seemed to be that Conroy would not be able to get the proposed new law thro’ the Senate. Hope this will be the case. Oh, and also hope one day Aus’s will have decent broadband!

Good luck!

This is a silly situation, read something the other day about it and thought it was a joke it was so silly. Petition signed and sent to my Aussie friends 🙂

OLPC Openlife Community

(From Digital Dreambuilder)I have created a venue where OLPC developers or educators can meet in a virtual environment, regardless of their physical location on the planet – the OLPC Centre on the Openlife Grid.

The Openlife Grid is a virtual world (Opensim architecture) that allows people to meet and interact in a virtual environment. In that environment your presence is represented by a character on screen (avatar).I am opening up the OLPC Openlife center as a place for any OLPC and XO developers and educators to meet. Although the location is virtual the immersive experience of ‘being present’ is there.Link to main story
