On 4th September 2014 I delivered a talk at the AusNOG 2014 technology conference in Sydney about the NBN called “Rebooting the NBN: (Personal) Reflections on the journey thus far”.
I had a nice chat with Garry Barker for an RMIT University Podcast series called “Talking Technology”. We talked (yes, again :) ) about my favourite hot-button items – startups, innovation and investment cycles and electric cars.
The release date for the podcast is 14 August 2014, and here it is:
Here is a recording of an interview I did with Charlie Brown for his “Life and Technology” show. This was aired on Radio 2GB on Saturday 9th August 2014.
This conversation was about two distinct topics – the challenges of starting a company in Australia and also about electric cars in this country.
You can also read more about Tesla and their cars – with some more thoughts from me as well on that topic, at the cybershack web site.

There is also short summary of the conversation on the Cybershack web site.
I enjoyed the conversation with Charlie and I hope you find it interesting too.
I have come across some interesting technology items at Zurich airport today, on my way out to London.
The over-arching theme was about ‘being a good ancestor’ – in other words, it was about the process of considering how each of us can choose to find their own way to leave society a little better through their efforts.
HFC, the NBN, and the meaning of life
With the release of the NBNCo Strategic Review earlier this week, I’ve seen some very significant misunderstandings (and consequent angst) expressed about the inclusion of HFC into the mix of technologies intended for the NBN rollout.
This post is intended to be a counterpoint to those misunderstandings.
