Sydney Morning Herald 14th of May page 7.

The Federal Liberal Government in its supreme wisdom decided to withdraw funding in the federal budget for the most important of
all future technology research areas, namely the CRC for Photonics the future of world telecommunications for high bandwidth
broadband and new generation lasers.

Lasers able to transmit - Infrared, Ultra Violet, X-ray, Terahertz - all in one device or individual spectrum devices.

Image a handheld X-ray scanner for accident response medical teams or in hospital casualty wards, to show broken bones before
the patient is moved and you will appreciate the power of this new technology.

If this is not for the "public good" what is it?

10 Gbps on multimode OM3 fibre - 4x 2.5Gbps or 3.125Gbps with 8B/10B coding.

Photonic devices will also increase broadband input/output transmitting multiple channels in different colour's over the same medium.

Choice is there for the best possible fibre transmission media to allow future bandwidth upgrades.

20th of March 2004

Since last August 2003 there has been a lot of interest in voice over IP (VoIP) as a new growth area for business and some of the
largest ISP's have now taken a serious look at the direction the industry is heading and decided to follow the trend by allowing static
IP addresses.

Grid computing has gained interest now, a major topic amongst some of the biggest corporate IT and enterprise network businesses
in the world.

Office networks are now being designed around a Grid computing software structure with lots of interest in the Linux platform,
I have seen many articles so far this year that highlight the benefits of using all personal computers (PC's) in the enterprise to
share processor loads over local area networks (LAN) instead of sitting idle, these single PC's can now be utilised to share
workload peaks.

Industry heavy weights can now see the potential of Grid computing and this technology will flow on as the industry designs the
way forward for future growth and profits.

The corporate whiteboards have had a good workout and a few late nights since last August.

All the sums point to who can develop their answer first with the best technology, industry needs to lobby governments hard
for the upgrade needed in the telecommunications backbone, as this is a world wide market and a problem, fast broadband will
never deliver or happen on copper.

The infrastructure costs will come down as mass production takes over.

Fibre optic cables and hardware will reduce in price when the market opens up.     

PCAuthority Magazine February 2004 page 22.

C.S.I.R.O. mathematics and information sciences use a technology that was developed to scan a 3D image from a
normal flat bed scanner, now its planned for release for the consumer market.

This technology will one day be used for holographic displays and building quality 3D object files.

Commercial 3D scanners are too big and expensive for general home or office use.

SETI @Home
First Distributive Software Screen Saver - to process data chunks on many millions of personal computers
when connected to the existing Internet.

The "SETI @ Home" was the first organisation to develop a "Distributive GRID" type model.

This software downloads a portion of data from the Internet and processes the data while in screen saver mode,
the personal computer can process data when not connected to the Internet, also in screen saver mode.
when the software has completed its task on the data allocated, it then uploads the data to the SETI@Home server,
when next connected to the Internet.
