Center for Democracy & Technology (About us)

The Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit public policy organization dedicated to promoting the democratic potential of today's open, decentralized global Internet. Our mission is to conceptualize, develop, and implement public policies to preserve and enhance free expression, privacy, open access, and other democratic values in the new and increasingly integrated communications medium.


This compilation tracks the bills introduced in the current Congress that seek to promote online child safety or that propose to regulate content on the Internet (As at February 6, 2008)

GREAT NEWS ! Penrith has Rubik Cubes. I purchased a key-ring version. ALL NEIS assignments are now DONE and COMPLETE !

I have another set of interviews tomorrow and then it's on to the business plan which has to be complete by 2 pm on Thursday.

ps The Rubik Cube is to demonstrate a concept.

"Ack I replied to the wrong post. It was meant for your one about training."


"Training" is "complete" (for a Certificate IV in Small Business Management". If I qualify a presentation (of the certificate) would happen this Friday.

A "Business Plan" is required for the "NEIS board". If I complete a business plan (the business plan) it has to be in by 2 pm on Thursday, and will be reviewed by the "NEIS board" on Monday during a 20 minute interview. I have to cobble this together tomorrow (at home). If approved by the NEIS board then I have the option of signing a "NEIS" allowance agreement on Tuesday under which I would be paid a "NEIS" allowance by the Department of Workplace relations - rather than another form of welfare payment paid by Centrelink.

I believe I have enough for a Certificate IV - the lowest mark so far is 6.6 (low because I drew a straight "curve"). Apart from this in the "marketing" stream I average about 87% - in "record keeping" about the same and in "operations" I have two assignments marked 100%.
