Hi all

I thought you might like to see this short presentation (slides only) by Dr Siu Ming Tam who is a senior officer in our national statistical agency - the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).  ABS was one of the earliest adopters for its statistical publications that are published online.  The presentation was given at a conference in November 2011.  Of most interest are the slides towards the end of the presentation which demonstrate the remarkable increase in use of ABS's statistics with progressive liberalisation.

Looking forward to meeting agenda suggestions for 17 January.  One thought
is on the open source platforms around open government and open data.  Let
me know your ideas!

Our speakers did offer to answer a few follow up questions on the list
serve, particularly given the time zone differences and that some could not
attend today's meeting.  Please respond to this thread to carry forward the

Thanks again and have a wonderful and joyous holiday and new year!
