It's great to see likemind getting a mention in The New York Times this weekend.  I love that we down here in Perth are part of something much larger than our city, or country.  This really rang true for me:

Literary essayist George Steiner once put it this way: Had a buggy whip manufacturer in 1910 rethought things and concluded that rather than being in the buggy whip business he was instead in the business of creating “transportation starting devices,” he just might have been able to survive.
I found this quote via the wonderful Lynette on her tumbr: Interesting Snippets.  For me it really resonated.  I guess it's what we folk try to do on a day-to-day basis.
