Ah! Memories!

I have been doing the annual “New Year’s Clean-Up” (what my Hongkie wife calls “dai so choi []”) and I found an old T-Shirt. Take a look:

This was a nice bit of political grandstanding by the fairly-new Borbidge Liberal Government of Queensland, attacking DSTC, the research organisation that I was then working for.

Happily, that little political experiment didn’t last too long!
(edit: I meant the Borbidge government, but I guess I could say the same about DSTC itself…)

Sadly, we still don’t have strong government support for IT or any other 21st century technology in Queensland…think about the current absurd National Broadband Network debacle and then compare and contrast with Singapore, Shanghai, Mumbai, etc.

It seems that all flavours of Australian pollie are simply content to keep doing nothing more demanding than digging and shipping our dirt overseas…
