Matthew Landauer: OpenAustralia - Everyday democracy for everybody in Australia
Launched to the public in June 2008, http://www.openaustralia.org/ gives everyone much better access to the daily business of democracy in Australia. Have a look! In this talk we'll run through a lightning history of the Hansard and its relationship with our democracy, discuss how our political health depends on it, and show all the fun you could be having with the data.
For over a decade Matthew has been working in research and software development for Visual Effects, mostly for big feature films. There's more action in Politics though.
Matthew is a co-founder of OpenAustralia.
