Latest bits on the Clean Feed

I have an infected foot, and couldn't attend the protest yesterday. If anyone has pics and info (for any city) let me know. Late note: APC has an article with pics of the Sydney event here.

The New York Times is now reporting the Clean Feed proposal. A PC World blogger has attacked it here. Blog Critics blogger Jonathon Scanlan has a discussion on the feed here.

Greg Laden has a discussion of the subjective nature of the filtering criteria in general, not just in Australia. The problem seems to be wider than just Aus: lawmakers are asking the FCC not to filter a proposed free internet network. British and German ISPs filtered links to Wikipedia because they pre-emptively decided that the content was child pornography, making it hard for Wiki to filter trolls and hackers.
