Summary Webcasting, sometimes labeled the "last frontier" or "the next stage of evolution" of the internet era, has been slow in its diffusion in Australia, due to technical constraints related to internet transmission speeds and bandwidth (Morrissey, 2003, cited in Lin, 2004, p. 446). According to Craig Preston, Operations Coordinator for New Media and Digital Services at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (or ABC, a national broadcaster), webcasting in Australia is "pretty dead, really" (c. Preston, personal communication, August 23, 2005). This statement will be examined in this chapter, especially since the Australian Media Guide does not list "web casting" or "streaming" as a category or include the terms among its long list of entries (Gee, 2005)
