Of startups and electric cars

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.

 

Thoughts about my transition from Internode to NBNCo

Back on November 27th 2013, I found myself with a speaking role in a live performance event.

A blast from the past : Internode and Agile in 2002

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…

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My tastes in sports cars have evolved substantially since then too – that old Ferrari 308 has long since been superseded by a Tesla Roadster :)

 

Successfully deploying IPv6 in Australia

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.

If you’re interested, you can take a look at that presentation in a couple of ways.
