Unbelievable!

Richard Alston will be the new boss of Telstra.

"And why not? After all, Alston has been heralded across the Lucky Country as a tireless champion of new technology. He is the man who tried to ban online gambling, attempted to make forwarding emails a capital offence, blamed South Koreans' love of porn for that country's enthusiastic adoption of broadband, and sensationally spunked AU$4m on The Department of Communications, IT and the Arts website, bringing the stunning piece of work in a mere AU$3.4m over budget." The Register.

He also accepted a gift of a $10,000 plasma screen TV -- from Telstra.
