blog We gave Senator Stephen Conroy a pretty hard knock early in his stint as Communications Minister due to his incessant and occasionally offensive defence of Labor’s mandatory Internet filtering plans. However, in the years since Labor put the filter broadly on ice, Conroy has more or less redeemed himself in the eyes of many in the technology industry, due primarily to his energy pushing the National Broadband Network project. This morning more good news for Conroy fans and those concerned about Government transparency in general has arrived. According to Computerworld (we recommend you click here for the full article), Conroy has asked his department what can be done to provide more transparency around the government use of Section 313 notices under the Telecommunications Act (you know, the ones which financial regulator ASIC recently used to unilaterally block a cluster of websites). Computerworld quotes Conroy:
“I think there’s a good argument that people are putting forward [that] there should be a greater transparency about what’s happening to ensure that mistakes, like ASIC have made in this example, don’t happen. I’ve asked my department to put some suggestions to me about how we can strengthen the transparency.”
