Watch and share the video above of three of the worlds leading IT security experts talking about MANDATORY national internet filtering/censorship in Australia. This is the first test run of nationwide mandatory censorship in a western democracy. It cannot be allowed to succeed or to infect other countries. There is a war being waged once more against the open nature and collaborative power of the internet. The internet is a giant mirror held up to humankind. We should fix the root causes of our issues, rather than sweep the bits under the carpet and cripple the medium.

Following links on the web today, I ended over this presentation given at TED by Sir Ken Robinson (you’re allowed to search on Google, I didn’t know him).
From the page: “he makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it.”
The whole video is here.
My favourite quote:
“[…] but what we do know is, if you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original”.
That made me think. I am, after all, scared to be wrong.
