This audio discusses:

Michael’s experience working in IT for over ten years designing government systems. The different organisations and perspectives at NetThing as a great opportunity to connect people up. Indigenous people benefit from the Internet as a tool, particularly supporting education and economic development. Intellectual property is a strong consideration in a digital era. Stories of places needs to be respected and understood, and the right acknowledgement of where information comes from.
