@twoscomplement You’re making it over-complicated. Other OECD countries are rolling out 100Mb/s. So are we (finally). Middle of the pack.

@thomasrdotorg I have yet to give a personal opinion about today’s announcement.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thomasrdotorg

@thomasrdotorg Yes, but the announced IS only average for a developed nation. That’s a fact, nothing to do with my happiness.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thomasrdotorg

@BernardKeane You’re right: It’ll take days, weeks, months to fathom all the implications of today’s announcement!

RT @shermozle: Upstream to what? This is all from the era of one ADSL provider and one upstream provider. [Fair point.]

via Twitter Web Client

@Roguelette @NewtonMarl Surely “contention ratio” is still “number of customers x plans’ rated bandwidth : ISP’s actual upstream bandwidth”?

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland Well, @crikey_news is supposed to have these people to sub-edit and find the typos. I blame… someone else.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

Crikey’s MASSIVE coverage of the National Broadband Network includes me http://bit.ly/fMplS and @mpesce http://bit.ly/14BmZ

@willemrt The hard part of my day is done: writing to tight deadline. Just some easy media spots now..

@jeamland Please do not be pointing out my typos after it’s too late. ;)

Mobile. Lunch shall be found somewhere along Enmore Rd or King St, followed by an afternoon potter then Triple J from 1730 AEST.

via Twitter Web Client

Apparently I will be on Triple J’s “Hack” this evening (with others) talking about the NBN. I suppose it’s important.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat Typo? Me? No. Wait. What’s “Fibre-to-the-Goldfish”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

Crikey stories filed! Whew!

via Twitter Web Client

Tue plan: Writing 2 pieces re NBN; lunch somewhere away from the desk (King St?); probable collapse.

Turnbull on The 7.30 Report: “I think he [Rudd] has become intoxicated with his own magnificence.” Pot. Kettle. Black.

via Twitter Web Client

@tilama Um, NineMSN has this piece, for starters. http://bit.ly/S1rME Others maybe scrolled off home page? No new news overnight.

@WoollyMittens I think Triple J’s Kate O’Toole was the first journo to ask Sen Conroy some of this stuff so bluntly. I was impressed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WoollyMittens

RT @Yin_0x7f: I’ve got $50 on them claiming that “the internet causes cancer” by 7.30.

via Twitter Web Client

@WoollyMittens Yes, Senator Conroy has be given an amazing political lifeline. Will he lift his game though?

@stilgherrian I think they confused a government policy announcement with an Apple product launch.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stilgherrian

@trib Yep, I saw plenty of reactions which indicated this was something they’d be able to buy as a product any day now.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Le monde est comme une fourmi nid avant un orage. Il est un grand test. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@rosshill @trib (I jump in without seeing your context. But I usually think what people DO is more interesting than how it’s pigeonholed.)

via Twitter Web Client

@rosshill @trib Same axes of measurement? Why can’t something be broadcast AND social? Is categorisation a distraction? [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client

I see that, as @BernardKeane predicted, there’s a bazillion more issues emerging re the National Broadband Network.

Recent advances in fibre: wavelength-division multiplexed passive optical network (WDM-PON). http://bit.ly/WBrk

@garthk BoinxTV doesn’t (yet) present as a Quicktime source, so can’t be used with Ustream except by screen-scraping.

@ThePlasticAge Oh she’s an annoying attention-seeker at the local. She asked what Twitter was. I told her it was a new kind of dildo.

@stinginthetail I think someone stuck the crazy person magnet on me in about 1979.

Apparently the woman at the next table threw “imaginary herpes” at my head. Why does this sort of thing always happen to me?

via Twitter Web Client

@shenki Wow, thank you for that compliment. I have thought that The 7.30 Report was becoming ritualised.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @AdnanKhan: FTA radio has 8 years to adapt, so I doubt they’ll “go” [And yet, what “adaptation” have they shown so far?]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @switchedonmedia: Free to air stations to go first as new media and take hold.

via Twitter Web Client

@alanjlee HD YouTube replacememt? I think this all goes beyond centralised media distribution!

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus OK, I’m on a bus, not watching The 7.30 Report yet, but the ENTIRE comms landscape is changing. Radically.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @dalziel_86: 7:30 Report also says govt’s going to separate Telstra’s wholesale and retail arms, as well as the new NBN plan.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @lindsayevans: + PPC-1 1.92Tb to Guam: http://is.gd/rakx + Telstra are building 1.28Tb to Hawaii - http://is.gd/ranL [Ta for those.]

via Twitter Web Client

@alanjlee You’re right. Higher local bandwidth will encourage local media. Channels 7, 9, 10 will be shitting themselves.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alanjlee

@rbuerckner @viveka Yes, wasn’t Senator Conroy in fine “Yes Minister” form on Triple J! Listening to the mp3 now. http://bit.ly/Oz6Y0

RT @shenki: How will intl pipes handle everyone in .au logging on at 100Mbit? (Southern Cross Cable=860Gbit)/100Mbit ~ 8800 of us get ?

@franksting The Clare seems much the same as always. IIRC, it’s going to survive in some form.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@franksting The good Senator was pre-recorded. However presenter Kate O’Toole asked him some excellent questions.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

The podcast of Triple J’s “Hack” with Senator Conroy and me and others is at http://bit.ly/Oz6Y0 30min mp3.

via Twitter Web Client

@plasmaegg Your question re Triple J podcasts should really go to Triple J but, yes, “Hack” is podcast. It will appear in the morning.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@WoollyMittens Yes. Some ales need to be reminded of their place in life. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WoollyMittens

Thanks for the compliments, everyone. The Triple J thing was fun. Nice to be back in a radio studio, oddly enough.

via Twitter Web Client

Having a quiet ale at The Clare.

@mpesce I have my MacBook Pro in front of me, and Telstra non-NBN Next G. And a glass of what is, sadly, not gin.

@zombiemao I will misuse language however the fuck I want. :P

RT @Dramagirl: Historic event today… no not Aus govt NBN… but a real person answered my call to Optus customer inquiries immediately.

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders But “large office connections” already use faster infrastructure. This only relates to small business.

via Twitter Web Client

I don’t pretend to understand all the implications of today’s announcement. Anyone who says there do is full of themselves. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@tahpot Why are residential requirements “obviously” less than business? Also, consider home businesses.

@sboiling “Hack” will include a pre-recorded interview with Senator Conroy. I will not be meeting him… today. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sboiling

Also, arguments about population etc are a furphy. We’re one of the most urbanised nations on the planet.

@KateLundy Having @piawaugh in your office is… interesting. We’ll have to talk about this at some point.
