Hi all

Being involved with students and schools here in Queensland, I think $5k is a lot of dosh.
Awesome things can and have been done for less (or for lots more people).

Plus, while it's great to have kids involved with hands-on tech and beyond a quick experience, promoting tech in general is not Linux Australia's purpose. STEM and anything tech is a real fad but that's not what we do. Open tech, yes.

I think buzzconf is a great initiative, but that doesn't imply that Linux Australia should supply large grants (which by implication would be at the expense of other activities that focus on open tech).
