  1. It's hard to believe that 30 years have passed since World Expo 88 opened in Brisbane. It was an amazing event which changed the city forever, and I have very fond memories as it is where my (now) husband and I used to hang out when we were dating. I've shared some of my old photos, my Expo passport, and other memories, in a post on my blog called "Why Expo 88 Means So Much to Me" which others may enjoy. I think it's important to record and share memories like these!
  2. Today marks the end of festivities and events pertaining to the 25th Anniversary of Brisbane's World Expo 88, with the closure of the Museum of Brisbane's retrospective exhibition on Expo, "Light Fantastic: Expo 88 Parades Re-Wired". Correspondingly, the 25th Anniversary of Expo 88 People's Committee Facebook group has now been closed to new members, and will become a secret group on Facebook, sealed until 30 April 2038. In its place a new grass roots discussion and photos/docs forum has been created on Facebook. Please join at http://facebook.com/groups/worldexpo88/ John McGregor Celebrate 88

  15. Hard to believe that the Brisbane City Council has had in storage a piece of Expo 88 history world history for 24 years in this year of 2012 First Sculpture designed by computer First sculpture with a computerized lighting installation. As unique as the Eiffel Tower. So in this utube we plead for its erection, Great Expo history and A world leading sculpture consigned to a dust bin! Listen and support our call to action, listen to the utube to find out how. But all is not lost, a community can get behind a piece of Expo history and make it the Best there is. A city can leverage up its Expo connections. A state can help create peace in our time. My vote for that went to the very Beautiful Japanese Gardens in Brisbane. John's vote is for the Peace Podoga What do you think? leave a trail of replies, we will award a prize over the next week for the most thoughtful. from 6/9/12.
