[Linux-aus] Census data risks - retention and correlation of records

Trying to tie together a few different thoughts here and identify what 
role Linux Australia may play here;

- If someone is willing to pick up the task and invest the time, LA 
could write to the ABS, specifically to the Australian Statistician, to 
articulate the concerns that the community holds about the retention and 
data correlation practices being exercised currently.

- LA could reach out to like-minded organisations (such as, for example, 
Electronic Frontiers Australia) and lend in-kind (or material, if 
needed) support if a clear campaign or key messages were being articulated.

- Or, we could simply use this list as a forum for informed debate 
without taken any concrete action.

As always, the Council is guided by the broader community in our 
actions, and we'd appreciate your thoughts and feedback on this issue.

Kind regards,
