We increasingly live online lives — but is that just a matter of computer talks to server, sends us a data packet and we grin when the cat picture arrives? It’s quite a bit more than that, with recent advances in everything from virtual containers to new processor architectures changing how our online apps are developed, deployed and interact with us online. We chatted at length to The Register’s Simon Sharwood about how what goes on in server-land directly affects consumers — and why we’re seeing some rapid shifts right now.

We also catch up with Phil Britt from sponsor Aussie Broadband to talk the state of the NBN, from fibre upgrade rollouts to wireless upgrade switching, what the future of CVC looks like and more!
