I heard Simon Hackett from Internode on ABC on the noon program. He 
made a good point about not involving Telstra's ducts because they 
could start out saying they're 'playing ball', but who knows what 
they would do in 10 years time. When asked if he trusted them, he 
said, "I trust them to be Telstra." So not only is it the issue of 
the Telstra fibre, but also use of any of their assets.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
