Noely Neate, Paul Davis and Pascal Grosvenor are the three people putting this submission together, although it is in reality on behalf of the over 800 interested people on social media, predominantly Twitter, who replied to the survey. Many interest groups, industry stakeholders and lobby groups have a say in these Senate Select Committees, while people, common average everyday people, who are using the Internet on a daily basis, seem to be left out of the discussion.
We would like to change that.We would like to give ‘average’ people, who will be the end user of what is implemented, an actual say in what they are receiving, what they need and the problems they are having in their own voices.
The below have physically put this together, though it is on behalf of 100’s of ordinary every day people who want to have a say in Canberra.
Small Business Owner, Community Co-ordinator of Regional portal, Amateur Blogger (partner and mother of young adult).
A survivor of over 20 years in the ICT Industry who lost the technical knack years ago, a politically aware, amateur blogger, fascinated by the interconnected nature of things.
Husband, Father of 2 young boys, Systems Administrator, IT geek and gamer, Music lover and Politics junkie.
Student (of life and more specifically IT), music lover, avid gamer, delver into languages and cultures and the dragonborn.
Hundreds of everyday people supported this survey, gave feedback, disseminated it amongst their personal online communities, and of course the "quiet" experts who have freely given advice for this submission.
