more dangerous ideas

Over the long weekend, Sydney hosted the (I think, second) Festival of Dangerous Ideas ...  not to be out done, SMH columnist Richard Glover offers some more dangerous ideas for us to ponder.

  • The bad public transport in Sydney is not the fault of the NSW government
  • Wikipedia is accurate
  • Most of the ways Australians describe themselves are not true
  • Books are great but . . .
  • We don't mind the ads on TV
  • Mainstream media is not dead
  • Parking meters are a good thing
  • Personal privacy is overrated
  • Plastic bags are not so bad

He's got a point with a few of them. I'm looking forward to seeing some of the talks from the Festival on ABC's Big Ideas (given how enjoyable the Q&A episode was).
