On my last visit to South Australia I visited the Adelaide North Terrace 
  Cultural Precinct, which includes the State Library, Art Gallery and 
several universities.

In the library cafe I happened across Dr Genevieve Bell, Digital Home 
Group Director, User Experience Group, Intel Corporation. So you 
succeeded in making it a place frequented by the digerati:

ps: I will be in Adelaide for the ACS Education Faculty Board meeting, 
6-8 May 2011. The ACS educators meet to discuss what is happening with 
online education, Moodle, Mahara and e-portfolios. My task is to lead 
the discussion about online peer assessment, where we get the students 
to do the job of marking each other's work.
