ark Knower is the National Development Coordinator of Open Family Australia, an organisation started in 1978 by Father Bob Maguire. Their mission:

To improve the well-being and self-worth of alienated and excluded street children through unconditional support, whenever and wherever necessary, with the view to reconnecting them with the community.

Mark and I talk about the size of the homelessness problem with Aussie kids (the 2001 census suggests about 26,000 kids don’t have a regular place to sleep) and what each of us can do about it to help.

Yeah I know – it ain’t about technology. Listen anyway. You guys should all be thinking about how you give something back. Even if you don’t live in Australia, I hope you’ll find some inspiration in what Mark has to say.
