While (unashamedly) UK centric, I can promise you that the Us Now movie is well worth down loading (via BitTorrent) or watching in full online as the stories it shares have global applicability. While we might have particular problems to solve here in Australia because of our geography and much smaller population, this movie is primarily about what happens if we let people participate in decision making or delivering services, and how of course new Web 2.0 technologies can help this to happen.

This promo clip is only a taster to wet your appetite, so don’t jump to any conclusions until you’ve watched the whole thing:

BTW Is anyone interested in organising an Antipodeans Us Now meet up to watch and discuss the movie?
