They should make a CD of the conversations, can you imagine it ?

12 million Ausstralians calling the hotline, some can almost speak english talking with semi clueless people on the other end.
Probably goes through to a call centre in India.

I believe it was outsourced to IBM
but that doesnt mean much
the smart thing to do would be to pay Australias top 10 isp's to host the application locally with replication back to the central server

I know IBM partners with akamai for some things, and akamai have servers with various Australian ISP's but im not sure if that applied for the census.
