new-matildaNewMatilda is holding a series of public forums about the internet regulation debate in Australia, with the first to be held in Brisbane on March 24, 2009.

The forums which are also set for Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne in coming weeks explore the ethical, social and political questions raised by government regulation of the Internet.

‘With the growing intersection between technology, politics and media, how do existing and proposed classification regimes measure up? Is filtering inevitable? Or are there better ways to regulate the world wide web?’

Speakers include Senator Scott Ludlam, Irene Graham ( and Nic Suzor (Electronic Frontiers Australia), with Peter Black from QUT Faculty of Law to chair.

This is a free event.
