On Saturday I was invited to attend the AGM of the Wireless Institute of Australia in Traralgon, Gippsland.
The WIA is the organisation which represents amateur radio operators to the Australian Communications and Media Authority, and purports to be the world’s oldest national radio society, having been founded in 1910!
The WIA AGM “Weekend Of Activities” included conference speakers, informative radio-related technical presentations and off-site activities, like a tour of the Powerworks Energy Technology and Visitors’ Centre.
Yours truly did a short presentation on Social Media and Social Networking on Saturday night. We had a great evening, the meal was delish and fun was had by all.

Many thanks to Robert Broomhead for inviting me to attend, and for the terrific audio-visual system which “just worked” with my Asus netbook.
