The problem is that we are all significantly less represented than
people that fish or shoot.
Forgive me if I say this like but years ago there were promises to make
Australia a clever
country, and I think for years it actually was.
Now things have regressed and technology people have less rights to
speak (in the political sense)
than Farmers or the Gay movement.
Most of the technology people in Australia are told not to be overtly
political or commercial
and I can't really understand this. Gay people aren't told to be quiet
when they want to discuss
things. Yet in Technology, we are the most submissive sector in the
economy. What gives?
