Senator Lundy live online from CeBIT Germany

Senator Kate Lundy will be speaking live online from CeBIT Germany at 9:30pm AEDT.
“Connected Worlds” is the main topic at CeBIT 2010, and Senator Lundy will be speaking about how the Australian Government has set the scene through policies such as the National Broadband Network, the Digital Education Revolution and the FoI reforms to put ICT at the heart of social and economic growth.

She will also discuss the Australian Gov 2.0 Taskforce report (launched December last year) which is a practical blueprint for a more open, transparent, participatory and open government. The Senator will discuss the important of open data, citizen-centric services and the collaboration of government with citizens to co-design the government of the future.

She will also discuss important changes to ICT procurement in the Australian government, and some of the opportunities and challenges facing the industry today. ...
ps: Seems a long time since we sat around a cafe table in Canberra, discussing how to put the nation online.
