First Australian CKAN Meetup in Sydney

Greetings from the NICTA Building in Sydney, where a Australian CKAN Meetup is happening. This is believed to be the first such event in Sydney. Steven De Costa, Co-Organizer, has been giving us an overview of what the CKAN open source data portal software
can do and what people around the world are doing with it. He is proposing an Asia-Pacific-CKAN-Meetup on-line every second Thursday, starting 17 September

Steven suggested this suitable as a project for university students to work on as there are only about twenty people working on the code at present.

CKAN is implemented using Python, Javascript, PostgresSQL and Solr. It is primarily used by governments to provide details of their data, including such, the USA's and the Australian
