A friend sent this notice to me….I wonder if outsiders can attend? Johnboy at a Liberals do – I’d love to see that 🙂
The Gungahlin Branch presentsâ€¦
Johnboy â€“ founder and moderator of RiotACT website.
What motivates a political blogger and how on earth does he keep coming up with the stories? What are the issues that he feels people really care about?
John Griffiths (Johnboy) was Born 1973 in Sydney to a navy family and was bounced all over the world on postings until 1981. He attended North Ainslie Primary School, Radford College and ANU, spent 2 years backpacking around North America, Europe and Asia during which time accidentally ended up managing a busy West London cineplex.
Johnboy returned to the ACT in 1997 and started working for Capital Monitor keeping organisations with a keen interest in policy and regulatory development (Banks, Telcoâ€™s, NGOs and Government departments) up to date from the Parliamentary Press Gallery.
He founded RIotACT in November 2000, while trying and failing to impress a girl. Since March 2006 has been trying to earn a living from independent web publishing.

[ED – *sigh* yes, I was asked and agreed to do it. I should note that I am available to any groups who would like me to speak to them, within reason (no NAMBLA, Nazi’s etc)]
