In the midst of an election with very little difference between the main contenders, can anyone honestly say that ICT is being given the consideration that it should, in this day and age? I'd argue that you shouldn't listen to the hyperbole on the two "spin-worthy" issues that have been raised, at least until you understand how they really think about our industry.

The various governments of Australia, whether federal, state, or local, are technology stupid. Their investment in technology is inconsistent and relatively low. There is very little genuine thought about the importance of IT and technology investment, and in so many ways, we're regressing into luddite philosophies!
