Good overview with many links related to e-research and the Australian government's new consulting exercise. Personally, I've grown weary (and wary) of consulting exercises - what I have observed in practise is that power (and decisions) remain centralized. Anyhow, some interesting items - Australia has an AUD 19 billion ICT trade deficit, and one in 20 Austrialians is now working overseas. Of course, Australians probably don't like being called "human capital" any more than I do. Yes, it is all about cultural change - but Australia, like Canada, must be very careful about how that culture changes.
