Senator Lundy's "Government 2.0: Policy and 
Practice"  is a one day conference at Parliament 
House, Canberra, 22 June 2009: 

This is about creating an even more participatory 
form of government in Australia. The event will 
be streamed live and comments are invited, 
before, during and after, to the event web site, 
as well as blogs taged "publicsphere" and Twitter "#publicsphere".

I will be speaking on "m-Government 2.0 - Making 
government accessible online on your phone" 
As Roger Clarke would say, I am still "on 
message" suggesting: the government should use 
web pages which are accessible/mobile compatible 
and without copyright restrictions. Also I 
discuss some recent work in Cambodia and Canberra 
on combatting flu pandemics using the web, mobile 
phones and Google maps. Lastly I talk about how 
from July the ANU is using the web to teach 
public servants how to communicate online and combat global warming.
