G'day John,

You could try Computer Angels (http://www.computerangels.org.au/), or 
there is a group at Mudrock Uni which does exactly that.  Their name is 
"8Ball" (http://www.guild.murdoch.edu.au/services/8ball/).

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional,
illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous
mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that
it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
