And I forgot to mention that due to some small technical snafu, we  
have extended registration to November 5th, so you do have a little  
more time.

> IRGO is pleased to be hosting the inaugural IRGO unConference on the  
> 23rd and 24th of November 2009 at the Centre for Innovation,  
> University of Otago, Dunedin.  The topic of the unConference is "New  
> Zealand's Digital Futures."  Our opening address will be by  
> Professor Greg Hearn, Director of the Institute for Creative  
> Industries and Innovation at QUT and the closing speaker is Rod  
> Snodgrass, Group Director Strategy at Telecom.
> The unConference aims to bring together scholars and practitioners  
> from around the region to discuss the future of the internet from  
> multiple perspectives.  In particular, the conference will focus  
> around three key questions.  Firstly, what might be possible for the  
> future internet of the region?  Secondly, what will citizens want  
> from the internet in the future (two, five, ten years ahead)?  And  
> thirdly, what potential internet problems or issues will we have to  
> navigate in the immediate future?
> As this is an unConference, the direction of the discussion is up to  
> you.  We are using a submission system where people can suggest  
> topics for panels, nominate panelists, and even vote topics up or  
> down.  The final list of topics will be decided by popular vote --  
> and you do not need to be a registered attendee to vote!  We will be  
> making conference artifacts available online, so anyone interested  
> can nominate and vote on topics.  Submissions close November 5th.
> Finally, thanks to University of Otago, registration is FREE.  
> However, places are limited, and registration closes October 30th,  
> so please register ASAP to confirm your place.
