Heya CLUGers,

I'm back in Darwin for a bit and I managed to convince the chairwoman of 
the Country Liberals up here to let me give a short (10/15 minutes, with 
additional time for questions) presentation to the party regarding the 
proposed Internet censorship package proposed by Senator Conroy. I had a 
quick chat with her about it and was concerned (but not surprised) that 
she knew very little about it, its unintended side effects or why it has 
to be stopped.

As most of you will probably agree, this issue is one that has to be 
fought anywhere it can be- if the APL or Family First or One Nation or 
whoever ask me to give a similar talk, I'd happily oblige. So, politics 
aside- anyone have any advice on how I should go about giving this talk, 
given in mind the very, very non-technical audience here? I'm 
particularly looking for clever analogies, interesting stories, relevant 
pictures or visuals, facts, statistics and things I can throw into a 
neat graph or powerpoint presentation. There's some good stuff on 
www.nocleanfeed.com, but if anyone has any insightful commentary to add, 
I'd appreciate it. I want to do this right.
