We hear every day how quickly the Internet is growing and changing in
New Zealand and we have our share of doomsayers and loonie tunes all too
quick to issue dire warning of the nets imminent collapse.
We also seem to suffer with more repetitive regularity the self appointed moral guardians issuing forth dictums on the immorality of the Internet. Usenet news groups become their target, spot a square inch of bare flesh and we can quarantee a tirade of hellfire and brimstone.
More recently it seems that its all the fault of New Zealand's Internet Service Providers. No, not the Xtras or IBMs, they are after all major companies so they must be OK.
