Well, that's it - AoIR 2007 and WikiSym 2007 are over, the drizzle has caught up with me here in Montréal after a couple of very pleasant days with temperatures in the 20s; time to get back to the Australian spring. It's been a very successful if brief tour through Canada for these two conferences, and I've particularly enjoyed catching up with what by now feel like old friends from the Association of Internet Researchers, as well as meet a few new faces - you know who you are. It's a privilege to have been elected to the executive of such a vibrant community - and I look forward to seeing everyone again for AoIR 2008 in Copenhagen (which looks to be in very good hands).

Meanwhile, there's work to be done in Australia - I'll be arriving back right into the middle of an election campaign which we're covering with our hyperlocal citizen journalism site Youdecide2007, and in our Club Bloggery ABC series which is also reposted in an extended version on our Gatewatching group blog. Will Howard's twitch get worse with every opinion poll? Will Rudd demand an all-Mandarin debate? Will Costello outsmirk Swan?
