I've been talking to/listening to a lot of very smart tech people tonight, about #AAbill. Without exception, they are all furious, horrified, scared, or all three. Genuine fears this could hobble Aus tech industry, and surveillance used for far more than just serious crime
As a starting point, read @dobes clear explainer on what's going on and what the bill could mean…
Second, the claimed need to rush this through before Christmas is a moot point - it will take more than a month for anything to even change, and that's taking for granted that tech companies will agree to do so
Next, the very way the bill operates - aiming to force companies to write vulnerabilities into their programs - seems incredibly flawed at a basic level, as this thread explains
There are better people to follow who can give better info than I, and who are RTing better people and great info - follow @Asher_Wolf @jpwarren @dobes @swearyanthony for a start, then follow some of the people THEY are RTing.

This #AAbill is a big deal, learn about it now
A lot of people have RTed this thread, so thanks. I've cobbled together a lot of these issues into one story here, featuring @jpwarren @Asher_Wolf @alfiedotwtf @SueletteD and more… #aabill
