[ProgSoc] Should Australian Technology Park be saved by the NSW and Federal governments?

Singapore's success with Block 71 (now JTC LaunchPad) suggests that 
government efforts to foster a startup sector by encouraging 
concentration - and doing so in an environment where land costs are even 
higher than Sydney's - can support material progress in this direction. 
I suspect that a real estate deal by itself is nowhere near enough 
though: many parts of Singapore's government have been working with the 
startup ecosystem, both independently and in coordinated ways, for years 
to get to the current state. It does not seem likely that state or 
federal governments in Australia would be capable of this, even if they 
wanted to.
