I’ve just joined SAGE AU – the System Administrators Guild of Australia  .
I’ve known about SAGE for a long time, in 2006 I presented a paper at their conference  (here is the paper  – there are still some outstanding issues from that one, I’ll have to revisit it).
They have been doing good things for a long time, but I haven’t felt that there was enough benefit to make it worth spending money (there are a huge variety of free things that I can do related to Linux which I don’t have time to do). But now Matt Bottrell has been promoting Internode and SAGE, SAGE members get a 15% discount . As I’ve got one home connection through Internode and will soon get another it seems like time to join SAGE.
