Internet Society Out of Favour with Australian Government
Greetings from the sixteenth Annual General Meeting of the Internet Society of Australia in Canberra. This is the second ISOC GM I have attended, the first was the founding meeting in 1996, when I attended online from Cambridge, UK. This time I thought I would come in person, as the meeting is in Canberra. One point of note is that ISOC-AU is not getting money from the government, perhaps due to its strong lobbying on privacy. Perhaps ISOC-AU needs to form an alliance with the Australian Computer Society, which has a good relationship with government and is cashed up.
