On this week's Byte: Social media marketing by fast-food chains. Multimedia Victoria opens the Digital Futures Fund for applications from Victorian ICT developers. We each have nice new computers, and we talk about the importance of knowing what the vendor promises it can do. The Australian Taxation Office might be perhaps considering e-Tax on more than one operating system, and we get heated about who controls it, and whether Australians deserve a free-software e-Tax instead. Audacity releases their first new stable release of the free-software audio editor in many years; version 2.0 brings lots of features. Movements in the Australian market for streaming media services, and how to support the authors of what we stream. A review of the book Lean Startup and its advice for starting a technology business today. Presented by Vanessa Toholka, Keren Flavell, and Ben Finney.
