Each year TelSoc hosts the Henry Sutton Oration in Melbourne to commemorate the distinguished but scarcely known Victorian scientist, engineer and inventor from Ballarat.
This year as Orator we have the Australian who played a critical role in bringing the Internet to Australia in the 1990s. While the Internet was still in its infancy in the US, he was able to complete the construction of a new and rapidly growing network within a few months; that network lives on in AARNet.
Despite a considerable increase in Internet capacity, regional congestion is still an issue at certain times of day. We therefore investigate a scheme that allows end-users to selectively exploit a sequence of mini-tunnels along a path from their origin to a chosen destination. Such tunnels can be advertised centrally through a broker, with the cooperation of the Autonomous System (AS) domain operators, similar to a driver choosing to use a toll road to avoid potential congestion.

While the Internet has come to play a significant role in screen narratives, an undercurrent in many depictions ? in varying degrees of fervour ? is that the Web is complicated, elusive and potentially even hazardous. This paper focuses on some of the persistent negative frames used in portrayals of the Internet and examines how, and why, they recur. This paper focuses on four technophobic frames including dehumanisation, the Internet as a badlands, the Web as possessing inherent vulnerabilities and the cyberbogeyman. Explanations for the popularity of these frames ? notably as grounded in the mandates of filmmaking ? are also proposed.
This year HSO will be presented by Professor Alex Grant , CEO of Myriota, founder of Cohda Wireless and previously Professor of Information Theory at the University of SA. The topic: ?Satellites, Cars and the Internet of Things: The challenges and rewards of crossing the boundary between academia and industry?. This is a live stream of the Melbourne event to Sydney.
This article offers insight into why geographic domain names remain problematic more than two decades after these issues first arose, identifies trends in DNS policy respecting geographic names and highlights the impact on various Internet stakeholders of current policy and decisions.
The 1 in 4 Poll project seeks to increase understanding of the views and needs of people with a disability by developing an accessible survey method. It is being conducted by Deakin University in partnership with the Victorian disability service provider, Scope. The poll method has focused on three key strategies: an accessible Internet-based survey; use of an assisted and proxy report; and a ?standard? and Easy English version of the survey.
Today, young people use the Internet for social networking, learning and recreation. Young people with disabilities have fewer friends and reduced social networks. Eighteen young people aged 10-18 years with cerebral palsy, physical disability or acquired brain injury completed a social networks inventory and level of loneliness measure. Participants received assistive technology and training at their home to learn to use the Internet for building social networks.
