I’m off to Canberra this morning.
I had the best of intentions of replying in detail to a lot of the ideas and comments that have been raised over the last few days. But the sheer rate and volume of contributions have made that impossible. I’ve read everything i can get my hands on and am trying to process it all.
Unless i shout everyone else down (the thought has crossed my mind but some of those actors are actually trained to project their voices so i don’t want to get in a shouting competition with them) there’s no way i’ll get a chance to raise many of the issues that has been raised over the last week at the summit.
What i will do is try and represent the perspectives and issues raised as much as i can in the various bits and pieces that i get to make some sort of contribution to. We’ll see whether that works at all i guess.
In the meantime, in the interests of a reality check, i thought i’d share this contribution from the Director of The Brunswick Institute:
I’ve just read your 200 words worth in Crikey and your website rationale for participating.
No mention of writing, books, publishing.
My big fear is that he might just be onto something.
