Opt-in or opt-out?

In the final election hours Opposition communications spokesman Malcolm Turnbull announced in an interview with ABC radio the Coalitions $10 million “Policy to Enhance Online Safety for Children.” The details of the policy sounded alot like Senator Conroy’s internet filter, which was heavily criticised and eventually abandoned last year. In the JJJ interview, Malcolm Turnbull said “What [our policy] does is essentially install that software either in  the smartphone or in the modem as a default which you can switch off but then that’s at your call.”

Shortly after the interview the Coalition back-peddled and announced they were not supporting an opt-out internet filter and that it was a mistake. “There was a badly worded sentence or two in the document that went out or earlier today.

According to info-world.com: “Cloud computing encompasses any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that, in real time over the Internet, extends IT’s existing capabilities… Cloud computing is at an early stage, with a motley crew of providers large and small delivering a slew of cloud-based services, from full-blown applications to storage services to spam filtering.” Howstuffworks.com describes what cloud computing does: “In a cloud computing system, there’s a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user’s side decrease. The only thing the user’s computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system’s interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud’s network takes care of the rest.” An everyday example of cloud computing, that most people have encountered, can be found within web-based email accounts like, gmail, hotmail and yahoo.
