For those Australians that missed it, the Prime Minister announced the 2020 Summit. Which is aimed at getting Australia’s 1000 brightest minds to Canberra to discuss the long term future of Australia.
My concern is that we get the right people to represent use and point Australia in the right direction. In past often the noisiest not the best were chosen for these events. Plus you need to find your own way to Canberra and provide your own accommodation makes it difficult for those without an employer with a vested interested. However, there has already been action by the blogsphere to get some of Australia’s brightest technology people invited. So go visit 2020 Summit community site and find out more, meanwhile I am off to vote for Mark Pesce, Laurel Papworth, Chris Saad, Stephen Collins, Stilgherrian, Cameron Reilly, (need a couple of good lefties) Duncan Riley, Bronwen Clune and Myles Eftos at Bloggerati because in my opinion these are the best thinkers regarding the future of the internet in Australia.
