Something else to consider:

earlier last week that number (total residents) was hovering around
2,700,000ish until a special was shown on german television...  almost
overnight there were 200k registrations from that region.

ABC's Four Corners is doing a documentary on secondlife now - interviewing
ppl over the coming weeks on SL and what has been going on in Australia in
this field.

It might not be too late to get Linux Australia a small segment in there? A
"here's our intentions" kinda thing if not "here's what we've done"
