Every week, Computerworld Australia collates all the things our readers have been saying about the news, both in the forums and in comments.

Here’s what you had to say on: Gartner’s claim of fabric computing being the next big thing

“What is this guy on about? Gartner defines fabric computing as ... well, fabric computing. ‘you can start to weave and interlink your systems together’ .. wakey, wakey, we've been doing that for 30 years. ... and it would be a bored IT department that would have the time to take his action plan seriously. The only insight he had was the blindingly obvious, ie. someone will knock on your door and try and sell it to you.” – said Tom on Fabric computing adoption, the next big thing: Gartner

Here’s what you had to say on: Labor’s decision to withhold the release of the NBN business case

“I want a fast fiber network built but can we afford it? Why look at the broader benifits of the NBN? The government has declared this to be an investment in a new public company. The NBN was never meant to be an infrastructure project, if that was the case it would be costed in the budget. The government can't have it both ways! The biggest worry is how it is going to be funded. We could be paying huge taxes or internet charges for the next 30yrs.” – said Mike Elliot on Parliament cannot discharge its duty: Turnbull

Here’s what you had to say on: The confirmation of the government delaying the release of the NBN case until after the parliament rises for the summer

“How can ANY member of parliment vote on anything to do with the NBN unless all the information has been supplied to them and the telcos. As shareholders this should be proveided to the public. So far it is all spin and no facts.” – said Mike Elliot on Confirmed: No NBN business case until December

Here’s what you had to say on: The internet filter legislation hitting parliament in mid-2013

“My God! What does it take to get it through to these anti-democracy retards that the filter is UNACCEPTABLE to the MAJORITY, will NOT work, and has already nearly cost them one election? Are they THAT stupid? Or have they been bought and paid-for by vested interests? Either way, they do NOT deserve to govern.” – said Mick on Filter gets a new date: Mid-2013

Here’s what you had to say on: NBN Co’s new deal with Cisco

“@Phil. To operate the connectivity, you need central infrastructure in place. To manage the network operations, customers, PoI connections, data volumes etc. Without the data centres and associated hardware/software, you can't have an NBN.” – said HazTechDad on NBN Co announces $9.5 million deal with Cisco for data centre equipment

Here’s what you had to say on: The Tasmanian Premier introducing an NBN opt-out legislation

“Grumpy, your comment is spot on, those fools simply are not technology people and they do not understand anything!” – said Visionary on Tasmania Premier to introduce NBN opt-out legislation

Here’s what you had to say on: Turnbull claiming a cost-benefit analysis will not delay the NBN rollout

“Be thankful Australia has an opposition spokesperson of the calibre of Malcom Turnbull. His thoughtful and logical suggestions are in contrast to Minister Conroy. Minister Conroy often focuses on the personal attack rather than the issue at hand.” – said Visionary on Productivity Commission cost-benefit analysis won't delay NBN rollout: Turnbull

Here’s what you had to say on: The Alliance for Affordable Broadband’s fight against the NBN

“Sorry what? Where was this so called "Alliance for Affordable Broadband" for the past 12 years while Australia has trailed around 40th in world rankings for Broadband. Where were they for the past 12 years while I've been trying to figure out why people in the bush pay up to 3x more for broadband (with less bandwidth and even worse speeds) than those in the city. C'mon this is getting old, the only people opposing me getting fiber is the companies who are going to have to scale back profits and CEO bonuses just to compete in a new and fair telecoms market place. Neeeeeext!” – said Nicoli on Send the NBN to the Productivity Commission: Alliance for Affordable Broadband (AAB)
