Dean Turner replied to GovLoop's discussion 'What Kind of Coffee Do You Order?'
"Morning cuppa has to be Grande/Tall/X-Large Cappuccino "Make it Strong!". Later in the day Espresso. Unfortunately living in a coffee backwater the commercial suppliers of coffee are adequate.  Best in Australia then head to Melbourne!"

Hi Dean

I'm contacting Australians on Govloop to invite them to join OZloop. I founded OZloop a short while ago after looking at Govloop and because it struck me that there is a case for setting up a network that is uniquely Australian and, of course, linking to Govloop. The situation is patchy in Australia so I figure this is one way to get things moving.

What I am focussing on now is building up membership to get the conversations moving. So join us if you wish and spread the word. You might also want to check out our submission to the Public Sector Reform Group.
