Boarding. Transmitters off. See you in Sydney.

The Captain has said we are boarding now because the engineer has said “Yeah she’ll be right.”

Conroy: “This… is on top of the $15+ billion cost to the Australian taxpayer of the Coalition’s copper-to-the-home broadband plan.”

via Janetter for Mac

Conroy: “I have seen estimates that if this approach was adopted in Australia it could cost as much as $3,000 to get connected.”

via Janetter for Mac

Minister Conroy has issued a statement which, you’ll never believe this, is critical of @TurnbullMalcolm’s comments.

Dear @JetstarAirways, re the delay on JQ789, is there a “Why?” Curious minds…

Rackspace Guy is “announcing” their Australian data centre? Don’t we know this? I wasn’t hallucinating this, this time.

via Janetter for Mac

“Turnbull supports user-pays fibre NBN”, writes @joshgnosis zd.net/W6OHBU

via Janetter for Mac

Shorter Rackspace: They have clouds on internets now, and they’re OARSUM.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ll post the transcript of me and @TurnbullMalcolm later. Somewhen. There’s much more than that snippet.

via Janetter for Mac

So @TurnbullMalcolm has gone, and while I arsehatted the timezones I have a special extension giving me one hour to file. Shoosh, you!

via Janetter for Mac

A lot of classy mocking going on. @TurnbullMalcolm in fine form.

via Janetter for Mac

Lack of women on boards gets the focus, but Turnbull is more concerned about women in senior management. “Underutilised resource.”

via Janetter for Mac

It would do @TurnbullMalcolm an injustice to try to tweet this. There’ll be audio later, I presume.

via Janetter for Mac

Well @abctech has triggered @TurnbullMalcolm into a frustrated finger-pointing passionate speech.

via Janetter for Mac

“What’s broadband for?” asks @abctech. “Well it’s for everything, isn’t it,” replies @TurnbullMalcolm, slightly puzzled.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s not even 0925 AEST and we will have until 1000 for questions. This will probably go feral.

via Janetter for Mac

[There’s a distinct “private entrepreneurs can do this better” feelpinion now.]

via Janetter for Mac

[BTW, I’m skipping a lot of the number-heavy sentences. @TurnbullMalcolm will presumably post the speech at his website as usual.]

via Janetter for Mac

Says that under Labor links between private and public sector research institutions have weakened. [How? Correlation != causation.]

via Janetter for Mac

Quoting bit of the Cutler report and his comments since the report. [I’m sure someone will find a linky link for that one too.]

via Janetter for Mac

Cites paper by Pollenizer and Deloitte on the “capital chasm” phase in a start-up. [Can someone quickly find that one for me.]

via Janetter for Mac

Results from broadband are from ubiquity, not high headline speeds. [This is true enough network effects.]

via Janetter for Mac

Repeats Coalition approach will be quicker to deliver improvements etc etc etc. Not new for me, but perhaps new for some here.

via Janetter for Mac

Labor narrative is that NBN will fix all of our problems and we’ll have a nirvana for digital entrepreneurs. [Straw man alert!]

via Janetter for Mac

Notes that even a utility like NBN can cause anomalous declines in productivity, which he’ll come to. [I may skip some background.]

via Janetter for Mac

Usual explanations: mining companies hitting lower-yield ores, utility costs such as electricity going up.

via Janetter for Mac

Noting that productivity is falling 0.4% the last few years cf 2% pa growth previously.

via Janetter for Mac

So far it’s about the false taboo of failure = personal lack, and that we learn from mistakes.

via Janetter for Mac

Theme: “Why a highly educated country with a non-deferential culture does not feel as if it’s doing a good enough job at innovation.”

@ScottFitzG Right. Silly me for going from, you know, the program on the website. Walking back now. Sigh. And a stronger word.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ScottFitzG

Lily’s on the Lagoon is still locked. What’s the story with that? Has the venue changed?

My reception of @TurnbullMalcolm’s speech will be coloured by the thoughts outlined in this blog post here. stilgherrian.com/politics/malco…

Congratulations, @charltonbrooker, for the line “lasagne with more horse in it than Catherine the Great”. History is so excellent.

via Janetter for Mac

@CassPF Though that is what history is. :) That @BoingBoing yarn has a distinct bias though, which is rather disappointing.

@ozdj So many, many metrics are, at their core, the same.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

@CassPF That said, writing “peaceful” is just as much a value judgement as removing “peaceful”. Calling it a “smear” is also a smear.

@mr_prolixic … and in Android (on my phone), “share” is part of the OS, not relegate to website widgets. [shrugs]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mr_prolixic

@mr_prolixic TBH, I never use “share” buttons. URLs can be copied and pasted, then the message accompanying it says what I want…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mr_prolixic

@mr_prolixic I don’t know what you mean by “no way to share the post”. But I’m a writer. How a story is presented isn’t in my realm.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mr_prolixic

Well here we are then. It’s Tuesday. And I suspect it’s your fault.
