Yesterday we attended the apps4nsw hackfest at NICTA run by Open Australia where we worked on our entry for the apps4NSW competition (more to come) as well as met and spoke with some very interesting people.

At the end of the day we were awarded equal first place for our app.  An Eee PC for Jeffery and an on-its-way Google Nexus Phone for Adam.  A good day.

We hope to use this as a venue for announcements about projects we’re working on or that we find exciting and interesting as well as general discussions about opening governance in Australia from the side of the consumer.
