Barak Obama

Below is a print screen of Barak Obama’s daily schedule for Thursday, September 4 2014. This information is useful for journalists and media enterprises as well as citizens wishing to have an understanding of the events he participates in. I sent two enquiries about the importance of freedom on the internet. The first, was via the contact form available on The White House website. The second was through The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) at Office of Science Technology Policy (OSTP).

“Clean Feed”

The Federal Government ALP decided to implement a form of internet censorship through the use of a complsory ‘clean feed’ service for the Australian public. The ‘clean feed’ filters out a list of websites prohibited by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). The aim of these new measures are to ensure Australian youth are protected from inappropriate online material. An essay that goes into further detail regarding this topic is written by Karina Travaglione and can be found via this link.

 

NBN

According to NBN Chief Executive Officer, Bill Morrow, NBN will be effective amongst 1 in 10 Australians by the year 2015.

Our plan is to provide one in 10 Australian homes and businesses the ability to connect to the National Broadband Network (NBN) in FY2015 as we work to double the number of premises serviceable,” he said.

The benefits of the NBN:
*Work, life balance
*Connecting with those that matter
*Better for busy households
*Entertainment for everyone
*A brighter future – education
*Healthier options – e health and telehealth
