* Discussed HM Revenue and customs who can refund in seconds, but also debit your account instantly as well. The key point is that there are upsides and downsides to being able to do this.
 +
* The use of Bitcoin for transparency and accountability
 +
* Currently http://data.gov.au/ publishes read-only data; allow community collaborators (members of the public, contractors to public works, etc) to directly update or contribute to http://data.gov.au/ data sets; possible use cases:
 +
** Extend the API to allow data to be updated
 +
** Directly update data via web form
 +
** Indirectly update data by synchronising previously-exported data; for example: http://data.gov.au/ data might have been submitted to http://www.openstreetmap.org/; when that data is updated on http://www.openstreetmap.org/, those changes could be synchronised back into http://data.gov.au/
