Got back from the US on Monday to fund that the September edition of Nett magazine is now out on news agent's shelves (it's not up online yet but should be soon). This one contains my exploration of what the National Broadband Network might mean for Australian SMEs. It was remarkably difficult to get some folk to think what life might be like in a world that was no longer constrained by bandwidth (and also not by its price) but this feature tries to paint a picture of what the world might be like. Thanks to everyone who contributed, including Intel fellow Genevieve Bell, KPMG demographer Bernard Salt and and Bob Quodling from Canberra company SIMmersion Holdings.
As soon as the story is available online, I'll put up a new post, but in the meantime you can do your bit to support Australia's print magazine industry by popping down to your local news agent and paying money for a copy. I promise that it will not expire or be erased by Amazon.
There's plenty of other good stuff in the September edition, including Josh Mehlmann's stylist feature on burlesque aficionado Jac Bowie, Jo-Anne Hui's feature on family businesses, Elissa Baxter's feature on the importance of content on SME websites and columns from Peter Blasina, Stefan Sojka and Stephen Murphy.
