Private Eyes are watching you

Hey, for once, I can totally line up the subject of an article with the act I’m embedding with them. Synchronicity! No, wait, that was The Police, wasn’t it?

Over at the ABC’s Technology+Games site, I’ve written up the details on Telstra’s Next-G snooping efforts, and why people shouldn’t be entirely surprised that what they’re doing online can be snooped upon:
Telstra data tracking reminds us: You’re not alone online “Telstra has been caught tracking the online usage of its “NextG” customers in preparation for what it calls a voluntary internet filtering system. It’s a stern reminder that whatever you do online is (or can be) watched.”
And now a completely indulgent moment; with small kids I don’t get out that often, but this was a gig I was actually able to go to. I paid money for it, but you don’t have to — and you don’t have to put up with the annoying woman behind me who talked loudly through the first half of the gig… until I turned and asked her to shut up. She left shortly thereafter. I don’t feel bad about that at all.

OK, it isn’t actually Private Eyes. They didn’t do that particular track, OK?
Update: The ol’ memory isn’t what it used to be… it was indeed part of the closing medley:
