Nice explanation of what is effectively copyright and patent law gone mad!

Apparently all driven by the "Americans" with everyone arrayed against them (although the scuttlebutt seems to be that we Aussie just agree with the US or at least aren't objecting very strongly.).

I hate this bullshit

More implicitly, using your PC to trick the internet into thinking you're not in Aus-"price gouge the fuck out of these bastards"-tralia will become illegal.

This looks pretty cool. From the guys that did And Yet It Moves. I must admit it was the art style that attracted my attention

Voting advice from a straight shooting potty mouth for this Saturday's election
A yelly sweary ranting website that compares Labor's policies with the LNPs policies so as to make for informed voting behaviours.

I really hope I'm seeing a grass roots movement towards removing control of my entertainment from big media and that this isn't just selection bias on my part.

Does anyone have any idea when we can expect the print version of the Cortex Plus Hackers Guide to come out? I backed the kickstarter back in Feb and long ago expected to see the print edition grace my doorstep.

(apologies if this has been asked and answered elsewhere, but I couldn't see anything in the last month or so of posts)

Speaking of PAX AUS. 

I saw this demo'd there this year and liked the look of it. A combo Action RPG and Deck builder made by an indie outfit out of Brisbane. I was impressed with what I saw and was waiting to hear from them. So this is good news.

Also one of the first official Australian Kickstarters.

They also have jumped on Greenlight on steam:

First person take on the FTL style of game... yes please.

There's a 5 player pack - anyone interested?

Certainly a better message than what Aussies get on their "official" copies of media:

Anti-Piracy Propaganda

If you have an hour in change on your hands and you feel like hearing someone pretty smart talk about the implications of DRM and what is happening now and what that means for the future. Then watch this.

Cory is a great presenter and knows his stuff, he talks from the point of view of an activist, but also someone who creates media content that DRM was theoretically created to protect. It wont be an hour you waste.

From hacking heart defibrillators inside peoples chests to companies knowingly using their software to watch you secretly via your webcam, there's plenty of scary stuff in here, he makes a good case for why we should not be allowing our governments and private corporations to legislate our use of the internet and information.

Introduction
I'll comment more than I post. I like my current signal to noise ratio on G+ and I like to try and help keep it that way.

Also, I'm in Australia so I'll probably miss the cool stuff you post outside my 'waking hours'.

If you follow me I'll check that you post mainly in English (a failing on my part... it's all I can read) before following you back.

Also if you follow me and have no posts, and nothing in your profile. I'll not follow you back. Nothing personal I just have no idea who you are and what your interests are and I'd rather err on the side of caution than risk offending you with my idle chatter.

Funny is good, but too many animated GIFs and cat pics in my stream will likely see you migrated slowly out of my circles.

I'm a huge pen and paper RPG gamer (board games too) so circle me if you don't mind someone who posts long winded opinionated comments on your RPG posts. I'll assume you're interested in this unless you tell me otherwise.

Otherwise I post links to PC/console game articles that interest me (usually of the game design odd or interesting persuasion, rather than reviews) let me know if you want in on this circle.

I post less about my industry, UX design, and only to a small circle of co-workers and others. Let me know if you're interested in this.
