Currently attending the annual meeting of APCAUCE – the Asia-Pacific Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial E-mail. What has been interesting is that many or most of the participants are actually from Governments. A couple of years ago it was almost all NGOs and private sector but great to see many regional anti-spam government agencies attending as well as the UK Government which has taken a leadership role on the issue. There are also eight here from China.
Yesterday had some time off so went to the Scitech Museum/Exhibition. This was great fun and only sad I only had an hour there – needed three. They had almost a hundred interactive displays of how science works. If I ever have kids this place is a definite visit.
Also made Freemantle briefly which was lovely. Only $3.10 by train from Perth. It was 32 degrees so the ocean was lovely.
Then we went out for dinner with the APCAUCE Chair and a SpamHaus Director. Just as we were about to order desserts we were told they had a dozen spare chicken and pork chops (the pork is rolled around the chicken in a ball and then breadcrumbed) and offered them to us for free. So we all have chicken/pork chops for dessert – they were delicious but not quite the same as ice cream.Tags: DPF
