Digital video maker George Bray has set off around Australia to highlight the benefits of high speed broadband with The Broadband Show and is looking for sponsors.
Ten years ago George set out on the Tech Trek. In a motor-home filled with the the latest computer and telecommunications equipment, sponsored by the industry, he demonstrated the use of the Internet to regional Australia. The trek ended at a computer show in Sydney with the motor-home on display.
The emphasis on this second trek is on high speed applications, particularly video. His latest report is from the Sunshine Coast, north of Brisbane in Queensland. In 2007 I visited University of the Sunshine Coast, looked at their computer aided learning and the Thinlinx computer company (makers of thin client computers) at their technology park.
