The internet is not a private party, or the play thing of quasi-democratic governments. It is the peoples' voice and it should remain in our hands!

Google builds in big data, pretty amazing (if it works). 

Just wondering if google "achieves" its mission of organising the world's data, where will we get competition from?
 
Today we’re bringing new features to the Google Play Books app. You can now highlight, take notes and translate words or phrases. And when you come across an unfamiliar location like a foreign city or obscure river, we’ll provide you with an info card containing a map and additional information.

Had the chocolate gustation and it was a great representation of all the rich flavours you can work with chocolate. Cake, mouse, ice cream, and a few other interesting desserts. Really enjoyable.

The permanent exhibitions are really interesting and engaging. If you have an extra day in Melbourne I would recommend it.
