Melbourne Pic Selection

Sadly our trip down under is coming to an end, but we are still enjoying our travels. We are now in Melbourne and are looking forward to exploring this cool city. Cool is a good word for it, the place seems great but is under half the temperature of Sydney which had reached almost 40c before dropping to rain before we left! We thought we had left the need for coats and wooly socks at home but hopefully the weather will turn for the better today so we can hit the beach before meeting up with Darren and his wife for a meal tonight :)

Cool People of #BWE09 – BlogWorld 2009 Pics

I’m having a GREAT time at BlogWorld. Here is some more photographic proof extracted from my Twitter stream :) 

Today is my first ever face to face talk with Mr Problogger Darren Rowse, thanks to WordCamp Las Vegas, which should be a great deal of fun! If you are at BlogWorld please do join us at 12:00 on the exhibit hall floor for an informal Q&A. (Not sure if it will be streamed at )

Gordon Brown’s blog on climate change |

Climate change is the biggest threat to all our futures. It will affect every individual, every family, every community, every business and every country.

So it is fitting that today people from all over the world are coming together to blog on climate change for Blog Action Day.

I didn’t realize until an hour or two ago that it was Blog Action Day today because of all the traveling shenanigans, else I would have prepared more, but I think it is totally cool that the day is going so well so far and even Number 10 (which is an awesome WordPress case study) have gotten involved.

Who would have thought when Collis and co started it that world leaders would add their weight? Social media does work!

Being surrounded by sunshine and greenery in the middle of what ought to be desert makes me really conscious of the environment. For the sake of lay people such as myself we need much more public discussion about it, and what we can do as world communities.
