Senator Kate Lundy is running a workshop "Bandwidth for Australia" on the opportunities and issues around getting high bandwidth Internet in Australia at the Australia National University in Canberra, 7 May 2009. Online Participation is available via Twitter using #publicsphere as the tag. Participants both in the room and remotely can post questions to @katelundy.
The event is being held in the famous Room N101 at the Australian National Unviersity, School of Computer Science. Being a green campus, while there is plenty of broadband , parking for private cars is limited, so consider taking the bus.
I will be giving a brief preview of my talk on how to use social networking and broadband to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, for the ACS Victorian Branch 2009 Conference. Working out how to get the the conference without using a private car has proved an interesting exercise in use of the web.
