Google Tech Talks August 6, 2007
In this talk I will explore the way that Australia upgraded to the metric system quickly, smoothly, and economically. I will describe which methods worked — while referring to the costs that Australians saved — and are still saving every day — through their successful metric transition. I will also comment on, the metrication programs of the UK and the USA.
Pat specialises in the modern metric system based on the International System of Units (SI), but he is mostly concerned with the processes that people use for themselves, their groups, their businesses, and their industries, and their nations as they go about the metrication process.
