Microsoft Politics & Technology event, 25 June, Canberra

In point form, because I’m a dirty lazy blogger.

*Ended up sitting back in the corner at "that table" with the other dirty bloggers & Crikey types.
*Twittered from the event, until my broadband *and* mobile phone crapped out. (twitter name: stokely)
*Heckled Joe Hockey, twice.
*Met & had a drink with Antony Green, the ABC’s pollster.
*Got to meet Senator Andrew Bartlett and thank him for his work (he’s leaving the Senate this week).
*Got to enjoy hearing Joe Hockey say publicly that he hates to admit it, but Crikey is one of the best sources of political news in Australia. 🙂
*Got to pimp to the forum. w00t.
*Met someone who’s starting a communist party in the ACT.

    hockey on cirkey

    Joe Hockey also said that there was a lot of stuff on crikey that was completely false and inaccurate.

    Balance = credibility my dear.

    Putting your name to comments = credibility, IMO.

    My name is Rebecca Horton, if that somehow makes my point more credible. I also attended the forum.
