In Sunday Essay - the importance of the individual, I referred to a comment I had made on Sam Roggeveen's post, 'Is there an Australian blogosphere?', on the Lowy Institute blog. They have kindly run the comment as a post in their reader riposte series.
Staying with the Lowy Institute bog in this morning's brief post, in Lowy Institute round-up, Stephanie Dunstan reported on the results of a Lowy Institute poll of Indonesians suggesting that popular opinion towards Australia had warmed markedly since 2006. I have written quite often on the future importance of Indonesia to Australia, so the result was obviously pleasing.
The full poll report is worth reading. You can access it through a link in Stephanie's post.
