The theme throughout is information, technology and society, the bringing together of people, knowledge and networks within a connected framework to, it is […]

ne[x]twork Sydney 2011

Last week saw the final event of Fuji Xerox Australia’s 2011 “ne[x]twork” roadshow in Sydney.

Observations from FutureGov 2011

Observations from FutureGov 2011

In her latest contribution to “The Drum” journalist Annabel Crabb confronts what she describes as the “rootless and shallow” nature of current Australian politics. I’ve been covering politics since 1999 and I’ve never, until this year, ever sat in the press gallery, looked down and thought, “I actually don’t think I can bear another second […]
