Another national security gabfest (though not without interest)

Over the next couple of days I’ll be peripherally involved with the Charles Darwin Symposium titled “The Eye of the Storm: Northern Australia’s Location in an Arc of Instability” being conducted at my place of employment. I’m co-ordinating the digital recording of the proceedings, which we’ll be making available on the web in streaming audio. The audios of the various papers will be uploaded progressively over the 2 days, mostly within minutes of actual delivery.

Speakers include Kim Beazley, Paul Dibb, Des Ball and Rohan Gunaratna, as well as the egregious Andrew Wilkie, whose presentation I intend avoiding if at all possible. I’m rather hoping Beazley might say something that I can mischievously represent on Troppo Armadillo as a significant shot in the campaign to dislodge Simon the Unlikeable, although one suspects there’ll be a swag of political journalists in attendance intent on developing exactly the same angle.
