Big media did the same thing with the Australian government recently. Now instead of fiber to the home, we get fiber to the node and a crappy copper connection to the house which is controlled by a monopoly company with no incentive to fix it, and not a good record of caring one iota about their customers.

While this is true seriously as a parent....what kind of dumbass leaves magnets where a 4 YEAR OLD can get them? Now obviously this wasn't the brightest bulb in the box, at 4 my boys knew that non-food items didn't belong in the mouth but still, not very damned smart.

Bah! My 4 year old was able to dismantle a hard drive on his own. They loved playing with those super strong magnets. Just sayin...

We have a federal election less than one month away. Unfortunately, I think it's mainly the minority of geeks and nerds which fear it and understand these plans. How do we mobilise the rest of a generally apathetic nation in 3 weeks before a federal election to rally against this?
