Project Better Place No3 is Australia!

All I can say is...WOW What an excellent turnout, great group of people and fantastic presentation by Guy and Ben. I'd say at least 55 people were there based on seating, including a rep from the Qld Govt department of natural resources and alternative energy (not 100% sure about the dept name but y...

Just a request that anyone attending please bring as many extension cords as you can?

We may not need it but better safe than sorry!

See you all there tomorrow.

Yeah cool. It usually helps if I post up the right phone number. I've just re-read my post the there's a typo in it. That's what you get for typing with one hand while bottle feeding a screaming 2-month-old who's just crapped his nappy. The real number is 0408 249 016. Apologies for that! I'll leave...

You can charge at my place if you like. I can leave an extension cord draped over the garage door. I'm at Edens Landing, just off the freeway in Beenleigh.

I've tentatively booked the Upper Mt Gravatt community hall for Sat 16th May from 12pm to 3pm. Awaiting the OK from Better Place speaker, but I don't see a problem since there is sufficient advance notice. For those who aren't interested in BP, please come along anyway and meet others, review conver...

BUAHAHHA. Thanks for alerting me to the impact of my post.

What I intended was to run all the A/V stuff off 1 powerpoint and leave the rest to the extension cords. I'll check the number of power points and include it in the info sheet.

Sure: You bring the extension cord, I'll bring a powerboard to make sure there's enough powerpoints to go around.

I'm just getting confirmation from the council at the moment. I will post details once things are finalised.

bga, thanks for your input and even with my enthusiasm for this project I respect your opinion and right to share it. At the moment BP is only planning on the east coast, being the most densely populated. The BP model is really for people who: 1) Don't want to use fossil fuels 2) Don't want the hass...

No worries Alan. Guy said to me that they have been working 20-hour days sometime because of the global network they are part of. It has been like a non-profit or NGO rather than an ordinary start-up because there is so much work to do and it all needs to be done yesterday. What I might do is update...

I've been in touch with Brisbane Council and they are sending me a list of the halls and the times they are available.

I may have a catalytic event for the Brisbane Branch. Better Place have been in touch with me and would be happy to visit a meeting and get to know us all and share their plan. I'm thinking the Upper Mt Gravatt Community Hall sometime in May. Is that central enough for Brisbane/Surfers people? Hands...

Project Better Place No3 is Australia!

I have had several conversations and emails with Guy Pross from Better Place in recent weeks and the story so far is: 1. They have been working flat out with planning/fundraising. That's why the communication has been slow. 2. They are at the end of the first planning stage and communication should ...
