The latest edition of A Series of Tubes is online for your listing pleasure. There’s me talking about NICTA Techfest 2009 — including an Australian breakthrough which could lead to bug-free software and the idea of the city as a social computing platform. There’s also a chap talking about NICTA’s new 3Gb/sec wireless networking.
Should iPhone users pay extra for using the device as a tethered modem? Optus thinks so — but me and A Series of Tubes presenter Richard Chirgwin don’t entirely agree. Yes, the latest edition of the podcast is online for your listening pleasure.
We also talk about YABS (yet another broadband statistic), Twitter and Iran, and of course Project TOTO. Tubes also talks to Alcatel-Lucent’s Geof Heydon about the NBN: it’s more than just a fast Internet connection.
The latest A Series of Tubes podcast is online for your listening pleasure. Richard Chirgwin talks with Chris King and David Thrum of Palo Alto Networks about the firewall market; sponsor Nortel about last week’s announcements at Interop; and me about National E-Security Week and the decisions of French courts on anti-piracy legislation.
I’ve been very slack about keeping you up to date with the podcast A Series of Tubes, on which I’m a regular guest with the redoubtable Richard Chirgwin. So, here we go…
In episode 84 (31 May), it says “Stilgherrian is trying to get ready for Project TOTO in Tanzania, in spite of the tribulations of topless garden gnomes (Tubes doesn’t know either!), but still took time to talk censorship, international cables, the OECD and Sol’s parting shot.”
And in episode 85 (10 June), I spoke about regulation, censorship, and Google Wave.
Richard and I recorded another interview yesterday, so I’m guessing episode 86 will appear tomorrow some time.
On this week’s A Series of Tubes podcast I quite naturally spoke about the National Broadband Network proposal. Richard Chirgwin also interviewed m.net Research Director Dr Marisa Maio Mackay about what’s changing the way we use mobile data services. Sorry about the late notice, but I’ve actually been having a relaxing time away over Easter in my Sekrit Eyrie.
This week’s A Series of Tubes podcast is up and running. Richard Chirgwin talks with Colin Goodwin from Ericsson Australia about 500Mb/sec DSL, and with me about Senator Conroy’s comments on the iiNet lawsuit, ACMA’s research into social networks behaviour, and the Vodafone-Hutchison merger. A Series of Tubes is part of the IT Radio family of podcasts.
