You couldn't make this up

The Australian government wants to empower a bunch of bureaucrats to “step in and take control of a company during a cyber-attack… including compelling them to install government software on their networks”.

I’m sorry, what? 😳

Tech policy in Australia is clearly being written by people who don’t have the first inkling as to how tech works. I’m beginning to suspect they don’t even know how a bureaucracy works in practice.

This really is dystopian fiction-level stuff.
