Fresh from the NewsMail deep in the heart of Hinkler comes a story about a local tomato grower looking forward to the NBN to be able to sell the crop.
The story has drawn a comment from one person who discusses the opportunity of putting tomatoes in a .zip file...and then accuses the person in the story of being a wacko.
The bottom line is that the process of ICT to transform supply chains is just as valid in primary produce as it is in manufacturing. The case studies are numerous, the implications enormous. But while the global leadership on comms matters has its head in the clouds talking "trans-sectoral" is it any wonder the NBN is treated with some cynicsm?
