Telstra and Freedom of speech Last week I was involved in an interesting but disheartening incident - one that further highlights the problems we are facing with Telstra in Australia.
Tomorrow I will be chairing Day One of the Broadband World conference, organised by terrapin. This event included a panel session entitled 'Can open access regulation truly work in Australia without retail separation?' in which Telstra had agreed to participate.
At the last moment, however, Telstra asked the conference organisers to withdraw two people from the panel, saying they wouldn't participate otherwise. It was also very interesting to see that they even came up with the names of the people they would like as replacements. more
I don't have to fix you. I think you know that. You are a natural leader, and you quickly established yourself as the leader of this team, without question. You're very smart, very capable. You're extremely flexible, creative, hard-working and very goal-oriented. There is a nobility in how idealistic you are, how focussed you are in serving the public and in your overriding concern with the mission of the organization.
