Australian Indigenous Links

Additions are most welcome. Email: Frank Odasz firstname.lastname@example.org
Nov. 2004, a National Indigenous Council has been created
July 04 updates:
Karen and Graeme’s indigenous projects are powering ahead. In terms of finding out information about the past year, I think the best source is a website we have built recently called telinfo (www.telinfo.gov.au). This website includes links to our indigenous webpages, which run through what is happening on the indigenous telecommunications front. Telinfo also includes information about an information campaign we have been running on television and radio, and in newspapers, including downloads of the ads. The ads have concentrated on telecommunications consumer rights and a broadband scheme (HiBIS) we have launched recently for rural and remote consumers. As part of the campaign, we are also about to launch an information booklet specifically targeted at indigenous consumers. Copies of this will be available on telinfo.

The Mobile Telecommunications Education and Training Service will work directly with communities to provide information on a range of telecommunications matters, including TAPRIC programs, telephone and Internet opportunities, and consumer telecommunications rights. The service will travel to remote Indigenous communities in selected regions of the Northern Territory, South Australia, Western Australia, New South Wales and Queensland between July 2003 and March 2004. The service will also provide community training in Internet use and web publishing, with a strong emphasis on passing on skills to the communities.

title. Here is the moribund discussion area for this agency: You can work

Anderson says: "The biggest challenge for regional and rural communities is not just to have the infrastructure, but to have the awareness and education to use it profitably and effectively."
Just as it was for Australia at the
turn of last century, it's now time for a nation rebuilding program. Let's set
ourselves up for the next 100 years by showing some foresight.
"At all costs, the federal government should avoid dealing rural and regional communities out of the future by committing all proceeds of the final sale of Telstra to debt reduction. By all means reduce debt, but be prepared to spend up to $5 or $6 billion of the estimated $30 to $40 billion sale proceeds on Australia's future.
Prime Minister John Howard and Communications Minister Richard Alston today will announce legislation to sell Telstra by 2005-06, a sale expected to raise about $28.5 billion.
