The 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission Final Report was released 
today: <http://www.royalcommission.vic.gov.au/Commission-Reports>.

The commission has released the report in three formats: Interactive 
version (HTML with hyperlinks to evidence), Print friendly version (PDF 
with lower resolution images), High resolution version (PDF version used 
for the print edition).

The report is divided into four sections, with a HTML and two PDF 
versions for each. Unfortunately the commission has not provided a 
simple way to navigate the report, with no consolidated table of 
contents linked to the sections of the report. The most useful version 
is HTML, so I have created a consolidated table of contents for that 

It happens that I was at a conference on emergency communications, 
speaking on the use of the Internet, during the bushfires: 
<http://www.tomw.net.au/technology/it/community_warning_systems/>. I was 
contacted by the royal commission staff and the commission has done a 
reasonable job of considering the use of the Internet. Many of the 
interim recommendations have been implemented already.
