I am a bushie and, like most Australians, we lived close to several beautiful rivers. They were great for picnics, fishing and swimming and provide entertainment when a fresh comes down. 

I received a Maths / AI degree from UNE and this was my passport to Europe for 2 decades. Living in Nederland, I caught the Dutch passion for a maths-approach to water topics.

Returning to Australia, I set up a micro IT consultancy with a trading name Australian River Deltas. I achieved local and perhaps international success with my efforts to make our sewerage system more efficient. The initial result was that we replaced all 12L single flush toilets with 4L dual flush ones. 

I studied how Water Law and Governance work internationally and wrote to the Government suggesting that we put our rivers into the Constitution. The No-reply was followed by some States putting Water into the preambles they were already working on.

Currently I am advocating to restore traditional practice of releasing water from "lagoons" onto the land during the Dry. This practice is documented in the book "We of the Never Never" and in other places. It is the most effective way to restrict the scale of bush fires.

I am also promoting Aussie River poetry following the splendid example of several other countries. There is a lot of worthwhile work to do. 

PS: The photo shows me discussing the importance of Maths education. I have a Wattle flower in my pocket for my students and I am totally independent of all political parties.

While Maths Education was the initial focus of the above conversation, we then spent time discussing the importance of Maths has for tennis. Perhaps coincidently, our tennis results since this conversation have improved. PS: This was the only 'selfie' I could find but it may perhaps demonstrate the power of Mathematical analysis.
Half the Platypus in the world are female, all are threatened. Recent Danish research may have shown that Platypus, like birds, may have quantum intelligence that allows them to see magnetic fields. Platypus is the most complex animal on the planet, related to many other species. In 1930, David Unaipon wrote that Platypus was the most numerous animal in the mountains. Platypus was our symbol for the 2000 Olympics and starred in a famous American cartoon. Today yet another Wetlands is being classified as Swamp, we all know the next steps. The two most interesting Europeans ‘found’ in their journeys were Swan and Platypus. THE Dictionary does not contain Indigenous names for either. Could we try a little harder to save Platypus?
