Greetings from Influence Forum 2007 at the Crowne Plaza resort in the Hunter Valley of NSW. This IT event starts at 12 noon with Paul Twomey, CEO of ICANN. I am here to talk at the green ICT session, and perhaps do more than some of the vague pledges made in the Sydney APEC Leaders' "Declaration On Climate Change, Energy Security And Clean Development Sydney, Australia".
Keeping with the green theme, the event is remarkably free of the usual brochures and handouts. The media room is equipped with rows of low power laptops. There is also a podcast room for digital audio and a digital video room. Out every window you can see a golf course, which is less green. ;-)
