OK :-) Some small bits of news...

	* Conference will most likely be held at Monash Uni (one campus or 
	* Conference is likely to be held in the last week of November (tied 
with location above)
	* http://www.yapc.org/Australia - will be set this week (later it will 
be redirect to below)
	* http://yapc.conf.au/ - will be setup as soon as the domain has been 
	* http://???/ - conf is temporary, so I am going to setup something 
more permanent
	* Damian Conway has agreed in Principle to do a KeyNote and talk(s)
	* Some other community bods have been approached re: talks etc
	* I setup a bit of a buzz about the conference at Linux Conf last week.

Finally - we are looking at broadening the conference a little and 
inviting other open source programming groups to be involved in 
separate streams / mini conferences (eg: Python, PHP, Postgres, MySQL, 
Open Office Programming, Zope, and even Java to name just some in the 
field). If you know anyone whom is interested in taking hold and 
running with one of these, can you pass on my contact details.
