Burning Platforms: Trolls on Trial

While Australians spent the summer searching for RATs, a hastily convened federal government inquiry was holding public hearings about online safety, as the Morrison Government amps up its war with the Big Tech companies. 

Burning Platforms is back for 2022 to dissect the inquiry with deputy chair Tim Watts MP to ask whether this is the way to tame Big Tech and how issues of Big Tech power will play out in the lead up to the federal election. He’ll join our regular panel of Centre For Responsible technology directer Peter Lewis, Digital Rights chair Lizzie O’Shea and Guardian Australia managing director Dan Stinton to chew over the latest in tech politics and power.  

Regular panellists:

  • Peter Lewis, Director of The Australia Institute’s Centre for Responsible Technology
  • Lizzie O’ Shea, Chair of Digital Rights Watch
  • Dan Stinton, Managing Director of Guardian Australia

And special guest:

Tim Watts, Shadow Assistant Minister for Communications and Cyber-Security
