    2006 is coming to a close and what a year it's been. Microsoft has
released its first new browser in 5 years; standards-based development is
near ubiquitous; the web browser is finally living up to its promise of
becoming a platform for serious application development.

    So what have you been up to? Have you, your team or your company been
working on the next big thing? Or maybe you've developed a cool new feature
for your website. Perhaps you've overhauled a creaking old site into a
masterpiece of usability and accessibility. Whatever it is we would love you
to come and show it off at Webjam. Webjam is going to be a fast paced
shoot-out of home-grown innovation where designers, developers, information
architects -- really anyone in the web industry -- will get the chance
present what they've been working on this year.

    The proposition is simple: we provide a laptop, a projector, 3 minutes
and a room full of increasingly drunk peers -- you do the rest!

    To the voting public, we want you too! You will be the judges, voting on
those presentations that educated, impressed or just plain amused. Come
along, join us for a Christmas drink and enjoy a display of jaw-dropping
technology from the guns of the Australian web development scene.
