On October 15th, 2007 TAC predicted there would be a firestorm over the influence of internet pornography on children in the upcoming year.
Now, Australian Telecommunications Minister Stephen Conroy has announced that all ISPs that feed houses and schools will be required to provide a filtering system to protect children from explicit pornography and violence. Of course, Australian civil libertarians are predicting the end of the world.
This is an issue that would have traction with parents and I'm amazed that with all the self-righteous god-bothering in the presidential primary campaigns there hasn't been a candidate who has seized on it.
