I attended NZNog in Christchurch last year and was pleasantly
surprised by the event and the organisation itself. A really well
run event with a good grass-roots appeal, full of real people doing
real world things - although with a funny accent ;-). It's been a
long time since we saw an event like that here in Australia.
I've been a bit quiet on the conference front since helping with the
early days of APRICOT and QUESTnet / NetWorkshop before that, but I'd
certainly be happy to help out with AusNOG if there's a chance of
getting it off the ground.
