Greetings from Government 2.0: Policy and Practice at Parliament 
House in Canberra. 

The event is being streamed live and comments are invited, during and 
after, to the event web site, as well as blogs taged publicsphere and 
Twitter #publicsphere. There is a livewall set up to show postings. I 
will be speaking on "m-Government 2.0 - Making government accessible 
online on your phone" in the afternoon. You can post questions for 
the presentations. We are in the main Senate hearing room. There are 
about 100 people at the event in the room. There is a upper press 
gallery empty, so anyone in Parliament House can drop in and listen.

The first presentation under way now is from William Perrin, 
Secretary of the Power of Information Taskforce Gov 2.0 in the UK: 
Policy and Status. He is giving us a salutary reminder that in 
amongst all the Web 2.0 jargon and technology we need to give 
practical examples of how the technology is useful to people. I will 
be giving some examples in my talk.
