    Internet Privacy

    I find the following rather disturbing:

For phone calls, this ‘metadata’ includes the number called, duration of the call, and the rough location you called or texted from.

    This metadata must be stored for two years and will be accessible to more than 20 Australian government agencies, from ASIO through every federal and state police force and corruption commission, and to any other agency that attorney-general George Brandis nominates.

    For phone calls, this includes VOIP and 800 numbers, even missed calls.

    Is this something to worry about? Or does this article over-sensationalize the issue?

    Allow me to suggest that the way things are going Internet and Privacy will soon be two mutually exclusive concepts!
