This is just a short promotional post.
If you are interested in the Perl/PostGIS http://geo2gov.com.au/ application we took second prize with during the Mashup Australia competition (or the subject of open government data in general) my "Nerds for Democracy" partner in crime Jeffery Candiloro will be giving a talk as part the Ignite Sydney speaking event on Tuesday night Sydney time.
You should be able to watch a live stream of the talk at the Ignite video website here.
In other Nerds for Democracy news, work is now underway on our entry for the NSW apps4nsw competition. It's looking pretty awesome, in particular because it will feature a set of government data we uncovered by accident, and which we think the public has pretty much never seen before.
