Have landed in Melbourne for a 3-4 week tour of several eastern places.By chance attended a Fedora meeting at the Monash Conference suite at Andrew Treloar’s invitation. Overwhelmed by the feeling of welcome. FWIW I visit Peter Sefton next week where we hope to hack some ICE, then to Margaret Henty’s meeting on Open Access, then a day visiting UQ to look at ORE things (Jane Hunter and Kwok Cheung) – they are the first group to implement ORE. After that to Canberra to meet Alison Edwards – crystallography – , and also colleagues from geosciences. Then to Adelaide (Philip Lock, to explore new ideas in chemistry and informatics) and return to Monash to talk about repositories in various aspects.
This is a great place.
I have just been told that Australia is a “remarkably efficient filter to get rid of grumpy bastards”.
Also got my first view of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). A place of homage.
Maybe I won’t use my return ticket…

    ‘ICE’ is a much-overloaded acronym.
    And I see you’re avoiding Sydney. Well, be like that then. See if I care.

    I know, what’s up with that? Sydney-Melbourne is only a 14-hour drive.
