ADNUG – Where to meet in the CBD

Consensus at last meeting was that ADNUG meetings should be held in the CBD.

I have approached UniSA and obtained a meeting room in the Computer and Information Science Administration area in Campus west.

It is at 27-29 North Terrace (Cnr Gray Street).

Gray St is at the left hand end of the map. Near the top of the hill heading towards West Terrace.

Close to North Terrace/West Terrace Tram Stop.

I am arranging for our next meeting on 11th April to be held there.

The Electron is on display at the Adelaide Clever Green Conference and Showcase
On display is the ‘CO2 Tacho’ to be installed in each Electron (naturally it will be smaller) to (a) record the CO2 content of energy being put into the car and (b) allow the drive to automatically set charging to commence when Green energy on the grid is at its highest and to turn charging off when dirty power is at its highest.

ACS Foundation and Open Forum co-hosting online forum: EXCITING CAREERS IN I.T.

Exciting Careers in IT
On 25 November 2008, the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Faculty
of Engineering and Information, Industry Advisory Network supported by
the Australian Computer Society (ACS) Foundation and ACS NSW held a
breakfast forum where members of the industry got together with
students, academics and other key stakeholders to discuss the ICT
skills shortage.
"I.T. is exciting! Why don’t young people know that?" That was the
question on the day, and that will be the subject of a report being
prepared for release in 2009.
Following the lively and articulate debate on the day, ACS Foundation and Open Forum decided to co-host this online forum:


The forum will be open until January 31, 2009, to provide you with an
extended opportunity to collaborate by contributing your ideas,
thoughts, comments or suggestions to be included in the report.
