Good forensics by Laurel here and a tip of the hat to other Aussie social-ites Gavin Heaton, Lee Hopkins, Darren Rowse, Gary Hayes , Stephen Collins and ex-pat Paull Young. Would have liked to have seen more for-profit examples of social media here...not too sure if its a question of what rose to the top or the absence of good candidates.
Perhaps we should have some Australia-Canada Social Media awards ceremony/competition called "The Colonies" and meet 1/2 way between us in Hawaii for the ceremony. What think, mates?
