Sorry. For the indignity and degradation thus inflicted on a proud people and a proud culture, we say sorry.

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.

I'm supposed to be writing a report on the VITTA conference. It was in November. I have hand written stream of consciousness notes, and a hacked up paraphrased prior report... and a bunch of stats - and am way past my deadline.

phew.  we made it.

for a week. 

linux.conf.au - Meet the Team

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.
