“Tony Ate… at Eight!” is a tribute to Abbott’s love of things in his mouth. 0800 AEDT, repeated 2000 AEDT, until I get bored or run out.

@SnarkyPlatypus What she said would have been fine for some small-business dinner in Penrith, not for specialist media.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Consensus of the journalists and PR people I spoke to this morning was that she was badly briefed and dumped into it.

mattblaze If you consider having an elevator go to the lobby an act of terror, you must spend a lot of time being terrified.

@SnarkyPlatypus Whereas an “item” is a price-coded entity. A 10-piece carton is one item, a 25-piece carton is a different item.

Clare will have none of this. And now we’re out of time.

via TweetDeck

Now @AndrewColley is arguing that current NBN fuckups are Labor’s fault for trying to nationalise telecoms in the first place.

via TweetDeck

Clare thinks NBN will be one of several election issues, but NBN goes to Turnbull’s record, and people will remember that.

via TweetDeck

Phil Sim asks if Labor’s polling shows that NBN is an election issue. It goes up and down, says Clare.

via TweetDeck

The discussion has moved to investment. Clare praises crowdfunding legislation, says we need to encourage institutional investment.

via TweetDeck

There’s a lot to be said for this argument. twitter.com/ReneSugo/statu…

via TweetDeck

Clare: “We shouild get @edhusicMP to one of these.”
Me: “Oh no, he trolls me all the time.”
Clare: “Well, Ed trolls everyone.”
True.

via TweetDeck

While not committing to the specifics, Clare says startups are scalable, can grow to generate GDP and jobs. [But how many jobs?]

via TweetDeck

I’ve just asked Clare if Labor’s innovation policy will be as startup-centric as the Coalition’s.

via TweetDeck

Clare reminds us that Labor’s announcements so far are “policy outlines”, not a policy. Actually policy is to come.

via TweetDeck

Clare mentions the lower costs of FttP now. Suggests we listen to Senate committee tomorrow. [Orly?]

via TweetDeck

Q re Labor’s potential to do any different. [I’m over these hypotheticals.]

via TweetDeck

Ross is essentially calling for a Royal Commission into the “billions wasted” on the NBN. Clare says people just want a working NBN.

via TweetDeck

Q from Nick Ross: “I’ve been following the NBN for a little while…” Yes, Nick. Yes you have16

via TweetDeck

Clare’s answer is a detailed one. He’s well-briefed, at least.

via TweetDeck

Q from Petroc about mid-sized ISPs on NBN and the financial model.

Emotiv has now got some sort of deal with Disney. We’re now watching a video of a mind-controlled BB-8 droid.

Clare repeats the story of Tan Le and Emotiv. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tan_Le

via TweetDeck

Clare re-reveals that he was a Commodore 64 kid. Today he reveal he was a Star Wars kid.

via TweetDeck

Still, Clare gets to repeat his “Copper Art NBN” jibe, similar to @BernardKeane’s “Copper Magic” line from years ago.

via TweetDeck

So this is what NBN promises… possible? pic.twitter.com/9NmQWZqOuC

via Twitter for iPhone

Clare cites “10 million metres of copper”, but here’s my explanation of why that’s nothing. zdnet.com/article/yes-of…

The railways are now compared with broadband networks, and now we’re onto the NBN critique.

via TweetDeck

Clare takes a swipe at “hyper-partisanship” in these areas. Worried that we’ll end up as a “digital banana republic”.

via TweetDeck

Clare is currently recapping Alvin Toffler’s “The Third Wave”, methinks, as well as Labor’s policy on these matters.

via TweetDeck

Clare recaps his speech from two years ago, about “Digital Darwinism”. It’s a race, and we need STEM skills, digital skills.
