“The highly-anticipated confrontation between Kim Dotcom and Prime Minister John Key at yesterday’s Security and Intelligence Committee hearing of submissions on the GCSB bill turned out to be mostly dull.” Until it wasn’t. Which has all been well reported.
Russell Brown’s roundup summarises the exchanges, the commentary, and hosts three submissions made mostly by other less prominent geeks opposing the extension of the GCSB’s powers (including one Michael Koziarski, formerly known as ‘NZ’s youngest Objectivist’) .
As Russell says, “The active participation of geeks in civil society benefits everyone.”
I might add to that, “… and of Objectivists.”
