I know that most of your efforts are based around hacking between the databases, and that just <em>so</em> good. But could we also give a little thought as to how these fests can be used to be inclusive of the Hughs of this world (in real time). In the e-research world we should be trying to include a global as well as national potential participants. I've been pointing a few of my global correspondents at this domain (and Kate's) to give them idea of how brilliant this community is. You might know that the place where you had the hack fest has enough tools and bandwidth to easily open the conversations, and <em>share the learning.</em> Many in their communities are <a href="http://www.eresearch.edu.au/index.html" rel="nofollow">at this one next week</a>, and while they have <a href="http://www.arcs.org.au/about" rel="nofollow">bandwidth & many of the tools and techniques</a>, this community has the drive and imagination (yo! pia). You do realise that you're developing a new form of e-research and e-education don't you? Mabe its time to ask the ARC for some funding? Well done John (and team),
