Being Œcloser¹ to the technologies of the future does not assure objectivity
or understanding of the interplay between Œtechnologies¹ and social
acceptance or economics.

Re other ICT groups I agree (e.g. ACS) but don¹t get going!

A focus on outcomes is important but for who in society is equally

As they say Œlet the debate begin!¹.

Hello All,

I would have thought the Universities and other Research groups would be
closer to the technologies of the future.

What do each of the organisations think about the NBN ?
I have heard and read very little from these organisations.

There are larger and smaller groups of ICT professionals that are not

What digital outcomes needed will the Beyond 2020 Alliance support?
