Well done John (and team), What can i say but bloody fantastic! I know that most of your efforts are based around hacking between the databases, and that just so good. But could we also give a little thought as to how these fests can be used to be inclusive of the Hughs of this world (in real time). In the e-research world we should be trying to include a global as well as national potential participants. I've been pointing a few of my global correspondents at this domain (and Kate's) to give them idea of how brilliant this community is. You might know that the place where you had the hack fest has enough tools and bandwidth to easily open the conversations, and share the learning. Many in their communities are at this one next week, and while they have bandwidth & many of the tools and techniques, this community has the drive and imagination (yo! pia). You do realise that you're developing a new form of e-research and e-education don't you? Mabe its time to ask the ARC for some funding?

Oh, nice, so they did! I guess sometimes starting at the top is better than random selection.

Of course. Brisvegas. Lots of precedents for pulling this sort of thing off without needing to be physically gathered, too.

John/anyone: did any of the projects use Openstreetmap instead of Google Maps? Forgive my laziness, I've looked at a few of the projects without luck - just hoping someone will know offhand.

You can always plan your own - where are you based?

Any similar events planned for other parts of the country, John? I'm feeling kinda out of reach.
