In this report Gerry McGoven argues against separate strategies for offline and online business. He argues that the online world (the Web, the Internet) must seep into every aspect of every organisation's strategic thinking.
Organizations that have no relevant strategy for the online world are in love with technology and content for its own sake.
This study examines online and offline political engagement in the United States and pays special attention to the role of social networking sites in people's political activities.
Social networking sites have grown more important in recent years as a venue for political involvement, learning, and debate. Overall, 39% of all American adults took part in some sort of political activity on a social networking site during the 2012 campaign.
Counterpoint has been asking its listeners to send in some suggestions on what they think would make Australia an even better place than it is now. One of the popular responses has been innovation. One of the leading fields of innovation has been the creative sector—advertising, architecture, film, TV, newspapers, software and digital content et cetera. Yet the innovation has largely been hidden from the public eye. That is, until now.
This paper deploys a media archaeology perspective to analyse the discursive and material practices framing contemporary understandings of 'public privacy'.
In his 1958 poem 'Dedication to my Wife' TS Eliot proclaims "these are private words addressed to you in public". Simultaneously written for his wife, Valerie Fletcher, and to the implied you of a discourse network, Eliot's poem helps to illustrate the narrative voices and silences that are constitutive of an intimate public sphere.
Many businesses and researchers collect and retain personal information and data. De-identifying that information in an information asset may enable the business or researcher to share or publish it without compromising individual privacy. This can be important, as organisations face strong pressures in a data driven economy to maximise the utility and value of information assets by sharing and publishing information and data.
The contribution that a dynamic local information technology (IT) industry makes to national economic development - as a productive sector in itself and, more importantly, as an enabler of productive use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) throughout the economy and society - has encouraged policy makers all over the world to put in place public policies and programmes that facilitate its development.
How can technology tackle the wicked problems of the coming decades? New technology and innovation is expected to erode 2 billion jobs by 2030 - and that's a reason to embrace new opportunities. These are two selected talks from the conference Creative Innovation 2012 Asia Pacific.

The 13 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) replace the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) for organisations from 12 March 2014. The APPs are found in the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012 (Cth).
Part 1 of this Guide summarises the key differences between the two sets of principles, including the new obligations that apply to organisations. Part 2 of the Guide provides a comprehensive analysis of the differences between the APPs and the NPPs.

Various measures of offline political activism appear to be falling, but this paper shows that young people in particular remain interested in politics, and use social media to stay politically engaged.
This paper analyses political support on social media, and finds that each of the main political parties now have significantly more Twitter followers than they do formal party members. It argues that this virtual support is part of a wider transformation of what it means to belong to a party. We are moving from a formal hierarchical model to more conditional support.
This report provides a collation of data and information about the IP system in Australia, where Australia sits in the global IP system, and how it measures up against other countries. It is the first in a regular series of publications about the IP system.
The report highlights key developments in IP rights:
This project aimed to explore the suitability of Agent Based Modelling and Simulation (ABMS) technology in assisting planners and policy makers to better understand complex situations with multiple interacting aspects. The technology supports exploration of the impact of different factors on potential outcomes of a scenario, thus building understanding to inform decision making.
Cyber technology has developed dramatically in the last 20 years and the internet and other new communications technologies have infiltrated lives in ways which would not have been imagined only a few years ago. Australians are now communicating with government, business, family and friends, as well as shopping and banking, online. While many senior Australians may have been reluctant to venture into the cyber world initially, seniors are now the fastest growing online user group in the country.
