Thursday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Jill Meagher: There are new developments in the investigation into Jill’s disappearance. CCTV footage has revealed that Jill was walking unsteadily up Sydney Road when the man in the blue hoodie was seen running towards her as a car did a u-turn and headed towards Jill too. This is getting more and more horrible. Writer Catherine Deveny has spoken to police yesterday, saying she was attacked by the same man, who tried to pull her off her bike in July. I hope they find Jill today.
JK Rowling: Harry Potter creator JK Rowling is all set to return to writing for young people. She said ”where Harry’s story is concerned, I’m done…” ”I don’t want to go mechanically back into that world and pick up a load of odds and ends and glue them together and say, ‘Here we go, we can sell this. It would make a mockery of what those books were to me.” That said, JK says she’s got a great idea for a kind of side-step prequel to the Potter books, and that there are a couple of HP Books that were written under pressure, which she would like to have had more time to work on. Read on here.
Online Privacy: There’s a battle being waged over how long telcos will be required to hang onto our online data, with the Australian Federal Police hoping for indefinite data retention. The current government proposal suggests that our ‘meta data’ is held for two years by telcos, so that it can be accessed by way of a warrant in criminal investigations, if need be. (At the moment, individual telcos are deciding how long they will hang onto meta data.) Acting Victorian Privacy Commissioner Andrew Bendall said the proposed change ”turns the basic precepts of privacy on its head. The idea that the state would be requiring private companies to keep data on private citizens, that is actually turning the private companies into agents of the state,” he said. What do you think? Are you worried about YOUR data? More here.
