actually CeBIT is a great place to catch up with people in the IT industry in Sydney. Many people go, after all it's an afternoon out of the office. And even if you're not interested in the content, the social side of things can be good.
Here's an action shot of me & a friend discussing a little start-up thingy we're planning (that's brainstorming in action in the Bloggerzone at CeBIT). There's even coffee available. But it is far away from the Bloggerzone so get someone else to fetch it if at all possible.
