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.
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.
Like many other iPhone users, I upgraded to IOS 7 pretty much as soon as it came out.
There’s a subtle bug that seems to be impacting many people who upgraded early in the piece, such that iMessage has lost its internal ‘permission’ to use your mobile number as the source of iMessages transmitted over the Internet.
People aren’t necessarily picking up on this issue by themselves, because their problem isn’t actually visible to them. It is only visible to (and only a problem for) the other IOS users that they exchange messages with. It just lurks there, driving people batty, with necessarily having an obvious underlying cause.
I’ve written this post to explain the issue and how to fix it, mostly so I can tell my own friends about it without repeating myself constantly. I hope its also useful for others in the same way!
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My tastes in sports cars have evolved substantially since then too – that old Ferrari 308 has long since been superseded by a Tesla Roadster 🙂
