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:
Well, here’s a bit of a blast from the past.
I came across a couple of recordings of short TV programs aired back in 2002 about Agile and Internode.
The first one is about the Agile ‘Coorong Project’ – commissioned in 2001 and still working to this day…
The second one is about Internode, again aired in 2002. There are a lot of long term, wonderful Internodians in this video. Many of us had significantly more hair.
Its amazing to me to see the old monitors – the old huge monitors – and to be reminded how much desk space those things took up.
We had already come such a long way in 2002, from humble beginnings in 1991.
The building this was filmed in was our York St, Adelaide, office, a small laneway in Adelaide’s ‘East End’. That building no longer exists – it was knocked down in favour of residential apartments many years back.
My tastes in sports cars have evolved substantially since then too – that old Ferrari 308 has long since been superseded by a Tesla Roadster :)
On 17th July 2013 I delivered a talk at the CommsDay Wholesale and Data Centre Summit in Sydney about the NBN called “The Ideal Wholesale NBN Market”.
I’ve just come across a video clip released today that de-mystifies the current NBN policy alternatives in less than 3 minutes.
Thought you might enjoy it as much as I did :)
Today I delivered a talk at the CommsDay Sydney 2013 Summit about National Broadband Network policy.
Given that the major federal political parties have clearly explained policies about the NBN heading into the September 2013 election, there’s no real mystery there.
In a likely future Coalition government cycle, what will the landscape look like three years after that? What challenges may an FTTN-based approach have presented by then?
