Do we have any members down under? I believe we used to. Well Australia has me on the fence this week. One one side they made what I consider a bad call, and have weakened Australians rights to privacy to support fear mongering (Assistance and Access Bill 2018) by making it easier for law enforcement and government to crack your encryption and access private user data. On the other they have decided that e-voting is a bad call and have turned it down. I think it is easier to manipulate voting per computer than is is paper ballots shipped in armored cars like we used to do back in the day. So here are some links on the subjects, you can find your own if you wish, there is a lot on this new Assistance and Access Bill 2018.
