Geek Actually Tech Episode 002 – Scarier Than Bikies

Hosts: David McVay, Josh Philpott and Shane Gregory

Geek Actually Tech is recorded live on Ustream with chat interaction.

The tech show by geeks for geeks and non-geeks. Accessible tech for everyone is the motto we live by. This weeks topic, Internet Censorship: Is the tide starting to turn?.

Tech News: Michael Atkinson (the South Australian Attorney General) has stated that gamers are scarier than motorcycle gangs. A recent Australian survey says that only 1 in 5 Australians look at internet porn – we call crap to these numbers. geekgasm! A missile is shot down by the first airborne laster – Star Wars here we come. And finally nerd Barbie is coming to a store near you, we offer an alternative :-) (see the bottom of this post for the two pictures)

Tech Opinion: This week we discuss the important issue of Internet Censorship. With Google threatening to pull out of China over censorship issues, does Australia really know what it is doing by trying to impose the Internet Censorship Filter? Does Senator Stephen Conroy read newspapers? One would think not with his quotes this week. Is the world ready to start opening up instead of locking down even further? We try and unravel some of these points in our main opinion section.
