Sounds great Brendan

We'd also be happy to co-host a Sydney meetup in November/December in 
Western Sydney at Collaboratory (more to come at 
http://www.facebook.com/collaboratoryAU & 
http://www.collaboratory.com.au).  Collaboratory will be launching 
around mid-October as a space for innovation through co-working 
(Tue-Thurs) and collaboration events / hackfests / Unconferences / 
meetings (evenings and Fri-Mon).

Given it is the election season, people may like to download the free 
Where to Vote and How to Vote apps that have been developed by Community 
Builders Australia using our MapIt server 
(http://mapit.openlocal.org.au) built on MySociety's open source 
platform and using data released by the AEC / ABS.

The Android versions of the apps are at:

Where to Vote: http://bit.ly/14JhAbn

How to Vote: http://bit.ly/15fQHSz

And for iOS at:

Where to Vote: http://bit.ly/15fgFmi

How to Vote: (awaiting approval)

Community Builders is contributing to our operational costs in return 
for commercial use of our MapIt server.

Others should feel free to make "low-load" non-commercial use of it - we 
hope to make it more user friendly for use via the browser over coming
