Innovation as a safe word. As Australia's anglo, male dominated elites struggle with change, they find a word to relieve the pain. In the meantime small businesses, startups and communities will lead the change.

Story
Tagline
Decoding the New Economy
Introduction
For the last fifteen years, Paul has helped businesses and governments effectively use the new media and technology tools that are changing the way we work and live.

Paul set up PC Rescue in the early 1990s to help small businesses and homes deal with technology problems, this gave him a front row seat in the era of massive change as the personal computer and then the internet transformed the business world.

The experience of building PC Rescue into a national support organisation taught Paul many lessons about business, employment and managing a high growth enterprise. Paul's been involved in three startup ventures since stepping away from the computer support world.

During the approach of Y2K, Paul started appearing in the media as an attempt to dispel some of the more panicked commentary. This lead to regular writing and broadcasting roles on how technology is changing the business world.

Paul has written seven books along with his personal blog and the Networked Globe website that examine how businesses and communities are changing in the connected 21st Century.

Absolute joke of a place. Walked out after two drinks and a salad, which took two hours to get to us. They got our drinks order wrong THREE times and, when we realised that we'd be lucky to see our mains before 10pm, we decided to cut our losses and run. This place cannot be derided enough, absolutely disgraceful.
