The Pirate Party: how to bypass the great Australian firewall

If an army of 70-year olds can get around the government's net filter, so can you. Here's how.

When Exit International wanted to ensure its members could access its pro-euthanasia material, set to be blocked under the government's proposed Internet content filter, it turned to the Pirate Party of Australia.

The Pirate Party hates the Internet filter and readily put Exit International in contact with member David Campbell, from Newcastle IT shop ClearComputers.

The brief? To teach 70-year olds to bypass the Internet filter. Campbell accepted the challenge, and proved breaking the filter is not just child's play. Your grandma can do it too.

He was kind enough to supply Computerworld with his powerpoint presentation, so the rest of us can always receive unfiltered Internet.
