THE INTERNET’S OFF SWITCH,WIKILEAKS, ARAB PROTESTS & BEYOND
Over recent times we have seen large scale disconnection from the
Internet, country-wide domain name and application blocking, domain
name seizures, content filtering and talk of an Internet kill switch. How
do we separate the reality and effectiveness of what is possible from
media reports and political dreams? In this talk Narelle will review the
technical accounts and analysis of recent events and pose some
questions on the potential for Australia and the region.

The Society on Social
Implications of Technology

Electrical and Electronic
Engineers, a 400,000-member
