Greetings from the Australian National University "Fishbowl" video 
conference room in the Supercomputer Building. Dr. Idris Sulaiman and

making arrangements for a Green IT Seminar, 19 May 2010 (9am to 12:30pm 
Jakarta time and 12 noon to 4:30pm Canberra time) at the Joseph Wibowo 
Centre for Advanced Learning, Jakarta, Indonesia:

Information Technology Strategies Course. Last Saturday, the Prime 
Minister announced that ANU would be providing training for the 
Australian Public Service and this may involve use of video conferences:

of the G-20 major economies, Indonesia will soon have to prioritize

they know what Green IT is? Do they understand the economic and social
