Yesterday the National Broadband Network Company revealed it had made its long-time and respected chief technology officer Gary McLaren and several other senior executives redundant. This email was sent by McLaren to staff at NBN Co.

The Australian Labor Party has published what it claims is further evidence that the MyBroadband broadband availability site launched by Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull last week is significantly inaccurate, with speeds in the Federal electorate Perth universally below the data produced by the site.

People often ask me how Open Source can be free and are suspicious of how free stuff can be professional. This article pretty much spells it out and makes it clear that Open Source has everything going for it over proprietary systems.

Vale Massimo Tamburini
 
Massimo Tamburini, designer of the Ducati 916 and MV Agusta F4 (pictured), has just passed away at the age of 71. The sad news got me wondering why so few modern-day sportbikes are 'beautiful.'

It's not easy to design a bike that is both beautiful and contains a brand's DNA. But Tamburini managed it with several designs for Ducati and MV Agusta, including the 748 and Brutale.

These days, most designers don't even seem to be trying. In the quest to make something that looks 'different' and 'new,' they seem to have forgotten the basic tenets of simplicity and harmony.

RIP Signore Tamburini. Here's hoping that your modern-day contemporaries take a quiet moment to examine your legacy, and learn something from it.
