A saga worthy of Homer

The title refers to the Greek, not the author.

In an itNews article this week I outline how the structural reform of telecommunications still has nearly a decade to go, and how it has been going on for nearly two decades already.

What I didn't include was my choice of the "hero" of the saga, the name that surprisingly kept reappearing in the battle lists - and always seeming to be there at the significant times.

The single most notable one was a co-author of the Institutional Analysis report that Tanner released outlining the minority shareholder issues of separating a part privatised Telstra, was present at the CCC/AAPT forum, was the architect of the ALPs NBN Mark 1 and finally was part of Telstra's NBN engagement team.

That person is, a follower of this blog, Tim Watts.
