About me:- Thirty(ish) years ago I left my Post-Grad research and career as a tutor in Physiology (continuing as Teaching Associate at the Asia Pacific Research Institute of Macquarie University during the early 2000 years) to operate our family owned micro enterprise, Hovtek Pty. Limited. http://www.hovtek.com.au/

 
I am a telecommuter, and licensee of domain names in .au as well as in the global DNS, but most importantly, I am an avid end-user of the Internet for work and recreation. Fourteen years ago we started a spin off project called BuildersNet which was developed from some of the TQM (ISO-9002 etc.,) activities of Hovtek; Ten years ago this became a stand alone Australian Company, (Pty. Ltd.,) and relies totally on the Internet to facilitate its operation.

Our clients in Australia are Micro Businesses and SMEs - and internationally mainly SMEs and Government or Aid Funded bodies; We service and communicate with them almost exclusively online and the majority of our importation of raw materials and products as well as export documentation bookings etc. is now handled that way. I am a Director in several Associations and a NFP company interested in Global Trade and SME growth, facilitated by Internet use, under the auspices of UNCTAD.

I believe the Internet should be seen as a public asset and needs to be developed and maintained as a cost-effective and accessible resource for communication, education, community, social and business opportunities by the Australian and wider global community; my work within ICANN with its remit as the coordinator of  the unique identifiers (addressing) across i.e. in the Naming, Numbering and Nomenclature within the Internet Ecosystem with its commitment to a multi-stakeholder, bottom-up consensus driven policy development model is an essential part of this aim.

My focus and ongoing interests are not specifically technical but rather more consumer and end user focused. Until May 2009 when the Council was dissolved I represent ISOC-AU in the Australian Communication Alliance Consumer Advisory Council) See http://www.acif.com.au/ with a keen interest in Policy Development, Access, Outreach and Regulatory issues.

I was an Individual Member (prior to the formation of our Chapter) of ISOC and am a Director of ISOC-AU See https://www.isoc-au.org.au/ since being elected in 2001 serving as Hon Treasurer from 2003, and currently serve as the Hon. Company Secretary on the executive... For more about my role and about the other Directors of ISOC-AU see http://isoc-au.org.au/Organisation/Dirs.html

I am a Member of auDA, having been re-elected as a Board Member for my forth term of office in the Demand Class (User Interests) stakeholder category in October 2012 for a 5th 2 year term. See http://www.auda.org.au/board/members/ having previously I have worked on several auDA Policy Advisory Panels between 2000 and 2004, and as the Chair of the Domain Name Industry Code of Practice Committee.

In 2008 and 2009 in addition to my work within APRALO and ALAC and specifically within the arena of communications consumer advocacy in Australia I was instrumental in the formation of a new National peak body to act as a co-ordinated voice of communications consumers Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) See http://www.accan.org.au/ 

I am also a member of several organisations and associations including  Women On Boards http://www.womenonboards.org.au/ and www.womenonboards.co.uk ; Women in the Boardroom http://womenintheboardroom.com/ ;  the TED community http://www.ted.com/profiles and the International Sustainable Development Resource Centre, Geneva http://isd-rc.ning.com/; and as an individual and corporate representative in ACCAN http://www.accan.org.au/  additionally I have had engagement in Australian Government Policy Development includes active participation in Govt 2.0 http://www.gov2.com.au/ ; Public Sphere activities specifically in Australia http://www.katelundy.com.au/category/campaigns/publicsphere/ (Archived); and continue to serve as a consumer advocate representative to the Australian Communications Compliance (CommCom) Advisory Committee a new independent code monitoring (and reporting) body, that is to ensure that Carriage Service Providers (CSPs)  in Australia are compliant with the Telecommunications Consumer Protection (TCP) Code, since appointment in late 2012.
