On blocking blogs... in Australia

Through the weblogs of some collegues on the other side of the world I keep current on issues regarding the fact that a lot of schools in Australasia are blocking all sorts of websites and weblogs. And we are not talking about China here, but about Australia!
I especially recommend Leigh Blackall and James Farmer if you are also interested in these issues. James recently started " is a site devoted to the responsible use of blogs, instant messaging and other social software in schools.
We believe that these tools and resources should not be blocked or banned from schools."
A big round of applause for James for starting this initiative!!
