War on the Internet

Where would you be on Saturday 21 January between 15:00 and 17:00? Personally, I hope to be at Melbourne’s Trades Hall for this session entitled War on the Internet.
The event appears sponsored by The Greens and EFA (Electronic Frontiers Australia, of which I am a member). The most interesting aspect of it, as far as I am concerned, are the speakers. These include:

  • Jacob Appelbaum, i.e., @ioerror, a hacker and an activist who has already been glorified by this blog (here).
  • Scott Ludlam, The Greens Senator from WA who is probably one of a mere few Aussie politicians that are actually inspirational. He is probably also the last thread in the defence of sanity when it comes to matters of technology and Australian politics in elected Canberra. You can read more about him here, here and here (all curtesy of Delimiter).
Between these two and more, this event appears to be a must.
