Live Streaming on YouTube Australia

Tomorrow from 1-2pm YouTube Australia will be running their first live streaming event for the 2010 ICT ministers debate on the youtube.com/AustraliaVotes channel.

ICT policy is shaping up as one of the big issues of this election, which is great because ICT tends to take a back seat in Australian politics. The main issues are around the $43b National Broadband Network (NBN) project and the proposed Internet Filter. Each party has a different perspective on each of these major issues, which hopefully will make for an interesting debate. Regardless, I am proud to be helping to bring this first to Australia!

Edit: The debate ran successfully on YouTube Live! You can now see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRHbeONYdUc

Pipe Networks Runway Survives

PipeNetworks have survived ANZ pulling the plug on their finance and have emerged from a share trading halt to announce that Project Runway is pushing ahead. It is great to see that even in tough financial times that profitable and well founded projects can still get through with smart companies banding together. It represents more than just a great opportunity for these companies though, overseas traffic charges are one of the major things keeping a floor under Australian internet prices. In fact it can be argued that cheaper overseas traffic will have more effect on Australian internet prices than the NBN project. Maybe with Project Runway, an NBN without Telstra and a canning of the internet filtering scheme we can actually get somewhere. It’s Christmas time, time to wish for miracles.
