Adrian Walter is leaving.

From Woroni: Professor Adrian Walter, head of the School of Music, is jumping ship, having been appointed Director of the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts. He will take up the position in September. What this will mean for the proposed changes to the School of Music is unclear.

I smell a rat in ANU’s anti-music-professional “reduce face-to-face contact, and teach art music students online” push. The beleaguered government is pushing the National Broadband Network – hard. It was sneaked into the core of the National Cultural Policy last year (as though it’s an end in itself, not just a delivery method). What’s going on? Have conversations been had, about having ANU prepare the ground to make the NBN stats look good? And if so, what’s the benefit (payoff?) for ANU?

Very doubtful, ANU has long had its own high capacity back bone connection. Indeed the fastest internet in Canberra is ANU’s, over 30Mbps. They won’t have NBN for quite a while, nor will it change things that much for them when they do get it.

Woroni’s Tom Westland has a piece about it now: http://www.woroni.com.au/articles/news/head-music-school-leave-anu

Looking more like he was pushed by the minute.

Really? Then why is the ANU’s “Wattle” student setup so ridiculously slow I wonder. Impossible to even scroll down a Wattle page without pauses!

Not all of ANU’s online resources may have the same high speed link. And a lot of the problems come from the ANU’s hardware, dodgy servers with capacity far below what they need.

Technically, ANU internet capacity is such that it can do incredible things.

It’s linked into AARNET, which is I believe one of the oldest internet links in the country. Today it has heaps of fibre optic capacity, about 20Gbps capacity. Even in the sticks (like Darwin) AARNET manages link speeds over 100Mbps.

I worked at the ANU for a while back in the early 1980s. I had better internet connectivity via AARNET then, which is almost 30 years ago, than I do now via my current ADSL2 connection, which is often a bloody joke. The same applied when I worked at the Defence Force Academy. Sweet, rich bandwidth…those were the days!
