Broadband or fraudband? Discussing the Coalition’s NBN policy

April 14th, 2013

I had a fun chat on Friday with ABC Radio’s Marc Fennell, and ABC Games & Technology editor Nick Ross about the Coalition’s NBN policy. You can stream it here.

We also talked about Flattr, a Swedish startup (launched in 2010) that is exploring new ways to monetise content on the web. Flattr allows people to make “microdonations” to people whose content they like on social platforms like Twitter, Flickr and Instagram.

The podcast includes an interview between Marc and the founder of Flattr with some useful insights for online journalism and why those running Flattr don’t think paywalls will work.


“Charis is one of those rare journalists and editors in Australia that really "gets" new media, the internet, and how it is changing the interactions between journalists and the communities they report on and to."
