Floriade's free Wi-Fi in time for summit
Canberra will host the first Public Wi-Fi summit
in late October.
The summit will follow the introduction of
Canberra's new free public wi-fi at this year's
The summit will allow industry experts from
iiNet, Cisco and Discovery Technology to share
their knowledge with state and local
"I am proud we have been chosen as the
destination to host the first Public wi-fi summit
in Australia,'' Chief Minister Katy
Gallagher said. "The summit will also help us to
further develop strategies around how Canberra's
new free public wi-fi network can stimulate the
digital economy and create vibrant town centres.''
At this year's Floriade users will have access
to 100 megabytes per day for unlimited sessions
of up to 45 minutes.
This is the same wi-fi capability that is being
rolled out across Canberra town centres and
Ms Gallagher said providing access to
Canberra's free public wi-fi network at this
year's Floriade would enhance the experience of
Canberrans and visitors and make it fun and
easy for people to share the event with friends
and family over social media.
This will help promote Canberra as a
destination of choice,'' she said.
Groom proposed as
Chris Orton and Maria Filardo met in London about eight years ago.

After plenty of hard work went into organising
their dream day, Chris Orton wed Maria Filardo
in a ceremony at the Gold Creek Chapel,
followed by a reception hosted at the National
The happy couple were encouraged to make
the day exactly what they wanted, and so went
about writing most of the ceremony themselves,
including the structure of the event, the vows,
readings and the words the celebrant used.
Groom Chris said although they were both "a
bit stressed" leading up to the wedding, the day
was worth it.
The couple's relationship blossomed in
London in 2007 following a chance meeting at
a Midnight Juggernauts gig. In 2012, they
moved back to Australia and, although Chris
initially was planning a different proposal, he
couldn't miss a full-circle opportunity when
Midnight Juggernauts played in Sydney.
Prior to the Sydney gig, Chris contacted the
band and organised the proposal.
"We were both there in the front row, and I'd
snuck off during a song. I snuck round the back
of the stage and when they'd finished the song,
they called me on stage and I had a few words
to say. Then I got Maria up on stage, I did a bad
rendition of Marvin Gaye's Let's Get It On, and
shewasabitstunnedatfirst. . .butshewas
impressed and happy," Chris said.
Maria said the proposal was unexpected, and
she was in shock to see her partner walk onto the
stage and take the microphone from the band.
"I think I was in a bubble. That moment was
just about us two, I completely forgot there was
500 people watching us, and we were on stage
having a bit of a kiss. It was just surreal," Maria
As for the wedding day, Maria said her
highlight was when she first laid eyes on Chris.
"Once I was holding his hands out the front,
I started to enjoy everything from there."
