| Linux conference in New Zealand, Waugh, a
| former self-styled open source advocate, was
| using loads of  tired bizspeak to promote
| the so-called open government policy  - but
| she avoided saying anything about the
| filter. When someone dd try to engage her on
| the subject, she did a deft sidestep.
| Meanwhile, yesterday, at the closing
| ceremony of the same conference, the other
| half of the family, Jeff, was urging people
| to black out their avatars on their social
| networking sites to protest against the
| policy.

| advancing this agenda, we align our
| principles, our economic goals, and our
| strategic priorities. We need to create a
| world in which access to networks and
| information brings people closer together,
| and expands our definition of community.
| Given the magnitude of the challenges we're
| facing, we need people around the world to
| pool their knowledge and creativity to help
| rebuild the global economy, protect our
| environment, defeat violent extremism, and
| build a future in which every human being
| can realize their God-given potential.
