From its inception in a dream-like state where Kevin Rudd and Stephen Conroy shared dreams-within-dreams together on a flight of fancy to Canberra, they thought they could rule the Cyberverse together at a cost of only several tens of billions of dollars. Instead, Kevin Rudd is PM no more, as we know, and Senator Conroy must face news of yet another NBN disappointment.
In a major boost for the sector, the Prime Minister Julia Gillard has signalled a hands-on role for herself in fostering "digital productivity," and appointed Stephen Conroy and Kate Lundy to assist her in the role.
If half the efficiency that the faceless machine-men of the federal Labor party's factions showed in dumping Kevin Rudd as PM and installing Julia Gillard in his place had been exhibited by the government over its 941 days of office, then we would be well on the way to having a national broadband network.
