Internet censorship in Australia

I've been looking for the past few days for any new information on the exploits of the good Senator Conroy, and his antics of providing a filter around Australia's intenet to filter out the "nasties" that may lurk on the internet. These "nasties" were originally sold to the Australian public as terrorist information, and child pornography - but as this unfolded, it appeared to include more and more items that seem to be of a personal nature to the good Senator.

I have not heard much information after late Feb 2009 - which is a positive sign, but I would like an announcement from the office of the good Senator Conroy announcing that he is no longer going to pursue the avenue of attempting to filter the internet. Articles like "Web censorship plan heads towards a dead end" (from give me hope.

C'mon good Senator Conroy - force me to remove the italics around the adjective good I've been describing you with!
