satire. it works! :D
the underlying argument of the article seems to be quite serious to me:
the nbn is surrounded by a lot of hyperbole and (rehashed) opinionated
chatter. the author presents us with the *against* case, as if it were
sensible and natural.
i miss this kind of though-provoking journalism. far to much of it
fronts up as 'objective' or 'critical' when it's often a rehashed media
relase or a opinion piece wrapped around some numbers or quotes.
the comments that accompany the article suggest the commenters have
missed the satire ...
