Does anyone want 2014?

Editor's note
This has not been a good week for conferences in Australia. SAGE-AU has canned its annual conference for this year after the resignation of its executive officer and is on the hunt for a home in 2014 after receiving no official bids for the event. Linux Australia has left the bidding for 2014 open for another three weeks, and is also exploring the possibility of a geographically dispersed management team. Yesterday saw the release of new versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, and WordPress made the web a little bit better with a new default theme. From across the ditch came the announcement of an amendment to New Zealand's patent law which would place a ban on patenting software unless the software is embedded within another invention. Here's hoping that the next week is a little bit brighter. --Chris
