This morning in the 42nd Parliament the Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, delivered an apology to the Stolen Generations. Yesterday, for the first time, a Welcome to Country ceremony was performed at Parliament House. It was broadcast live, and watched by thousands, perhaps millions of people across the nation.
On Friday 21 Dec we sold out of tix for linux.conf.au 2008. We only had 500 to sell and clearly that's just not enough. It's already a big conference. We've reserved 100 spots for speakers, mini-conf organisers and the media. Volunteers aren't counted inside the 600 limit our keynote venue holds... the team will meet today to discuss options re: over subscribing, or issuing tickets that don't give access to the keynotes.
deep breaths - the VITTA (http://www.vitta.org.au) conference opens on Monday. It has nothing in common with linux.conf.au (http://linux.conf.au) other than the fact I'm organising both conferences, and they both have something to do with IT. Albeit at very different ends of the scale.
