The #aabill is incredibly short-sighted & luddite. Even if the AU Gov. can coerce tech companies to backdoor encrypted messaging platforms, nothing's going to stop people from resorting to using free & opensource #crypto software like @GnuPG! #auspol bit.ly/2QbxUor 1/
Popular #crypto software is trusted because it's been written & vetted by members of a decentralized #opensource community which you can't coerce. If you want to make it illegal to possess @GnuPG in Australia because you can't backdoor it, then you'll kill the IT industry. 2/

People interested in #myhealthrecord might also be interested in new legislation being introduced which will over-ride the Privacy Act to allow sharing of your administrative data datacommissioner.gov.au #Auspol
In case it isn't obvious, gov needs this new Act because the Privacy Act prevents them from joining all your administrative data into one big project using info you provided in the last census.
The reason no one knows about this is because data governance frameworks are apparently a boring topic the media doesn't want to talk about.
