I am Australian but I now spend most of my time in New York, no I don't
work for Telstra I work for myself (adhoc consulting, strategic
marketing direction and capital raising).


No I've never worked for a broadcaster my last two real jobs were in
1999 as Strategic Directions of a publicly list ISP aggregator (ASX:ISP)
and in 2001 as director of a 3 country data centre rollout based in
Kuala Lumpur, though at one stage in 1997 I did open the Australian
office for Singtel's international data sales.


My reasoning for being pissed at cablelabs was I was intending to build
a super dvr that sat behind the cable networks platform delivering value
add smart content, but they are a closed shop with their head in the


My intention now is to make suggestions to the MythTV project on value
add ideas to enhance the current offering.

you must be in Australia. Do you work for Telstra or other
broadcast(ish) company?

I was going to scan a few of these presentations from the paper copy I
received on the day and email them but they just emailed me the link.


I have a number of comments to make but to be honest I'm still forming
my ideas, my initial reaction though is the US cable industry is in for
a real shock. They are acting like Telstra at it's worst, very
monopolistic and unaware of what's coming down the pipeline from the dsl
IP-TV providers.


Any thoughts?
