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:
This post just points out a couple of places on the Interwebs where I’ve discussed the journey around starting, growing, and ultimately selling Internode.

Back on November 27th 2013, I found myself with a speaking role in a live performance event.
The event was called “Cutaway – a Ceremony“, and it was held at the home of the Vitalstatistix Theatre Company in historic Port Adelaide.
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.
On October 18th 2012 in Melbourne, I delivered a presentation about the history and current deployment status of IPv6 into the national customer base of Internode.

When I was in the USA a few months ago, I watched some episodes of a ‘reality’ (and I use the term loosely) show on A&E called ‘Storage Wars’. People’s abandoned storage lockers auctioned off and explored, to find ‘the treasures within’ (and in the case of the TV show, to try to make money out of selling them).
I’m one of those people who likes to keep (or: finds it hard to throw away…) old computers and computer related bits and pieces. Watching ‘Storage Wars’ was the catalyst for me to arrange to empty the contents of my own storage facility in Adelaide, into which I’ve put various old computers and related bits and pieces accumulated over the last two decades of starting and growing Internode.
