Concerned about several aspects of how the NBN might unfold, I tried 
to engage with the relevant executive.

I was told it was inappropriate for NBNCo to spend time on this 
submission, because she'd have to give equal time to everyone if she 
did so.

That seems to rather emphasise the point the paper is making.

(The relevant exec is Christy Boyce.  Her job-title - perhaps 
tellingly - is 'Head of Industry Engagement').

As ever, constructively negative criticism gratefully received, and 
feel free to pass this on to other appropriate channels.

      The National Broadband Network (NBN): Privacy Considerations

The NBN holds great promise. It also harbours considerable potential 
threats to privacy. There is to date no sign that NBN Co. is engaging 
with the issues. It needs to do so.
