MNSI Public Lectures podcast - Mike Quigley on the NBN
We have launched our MNSI Public Lectures podcast series where you can find public lectures from thought leaders and experts around connectivity, technology, futurism and other topics facing the networked society. Our first episode features former NBN Co CEO Mike Quigley delivering his talk The NBN: From 2009 to 2016 and Beyond.
In his talk, Mike presents an NBN history coloured by political interference. He praises the talent within NBN Co both past and present, and tells of the struggles and hurdles in place for any group attempting a large-scale technical deployment. This is a must for anyone with an interest in Australia's national broadband network - from engineers to voters, there is something in this talk for everyone.
Our next podcast will feature Melissa Hathaway, a leading expert in cyberspace policy and cybersecurity, delivering her lecture Cybersecurity: Is Australia ready?
The MNSI Public Lectures podcast will be released sporadically following our public lecture events held at the University of Melbourne. We hope this series will bring forth new ideas, fuel conversations, and further interest in understanding the networked society.
The podcast is currently available on SoundCloud only but will be released on iTunes and Stitcher in the coming months.
