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.
If you’re interested in this sort of thing, just read on for the location of those things. Continue reading
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.
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My tastes in sports cars have evolved substantially since then too – that old Ferrari 308 has long since been superseded by a Tesla Roadster :)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 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.
