Simon Hackett Appointed to NBN Co Board (Seriously)

James Hutchinson from the AFR reports:

NBN Co’s first head of construction, Patrick Flannigan, iiNet director Simon Hackett, and former Telstra executive Justin Milne will join the board of three: Dr Ziggy Switkowski, Alison Lansley and Dr Kerry Schott.

Simon Hackett is someone I respect immensely. A win for the nerds. Delimiter has a nice bit on what this means.
