Big news for the month

Big news for the month
I realised I actually didn’t post about this… so many things happening, so many things going on, some good, some not so good. But earlier this month there was this announcement:     Walkley Grants for Innovation in Journalism: Inaugural Winners Stephen Turner, “Youth Bytes” Youth Bytes will be an online hub for student news ...

Broadband and dead leaders

News today dominated by Margaret Thatcher’s death and the competing broadband plans in the news. Needless to say, I found the coalition plan to be underwhelming at best and a joke at worst, and of course was more disgusted by the general state of the mainstream news coverage of the announcement. It wasn’t really bias, ...

Day 1 Google Apps summit

Day 1 Google Apps summit
Headed out bright and very early to the Google Apps summit being held at MLC school in Burwood. Could only gawk at how modern and wealthy the school grounds were, but that wasn’t the point of the day. The point was that this was a big event being held in aid of the whole suite ...

How to put yourself out of business

How to put yourself out of business
I picked up this story through Twitter last night: Post a link, become a pirate Posting a link to a news story from Ireland might prove to be an expensive business. According to this site (hat tip Fark) a group of Irish newspapers have decided that the way to make cash from the web is to bill anyone who links ...

Crazy arguments on the Internet

Crazy arguments on the Internet
Back at work today for the first time since before Christmas, and it’s quiet, naturally. Seen a couple of people, but as I expected, I’m basically the only person here for most of the day. And of course, while I’m getting back in the swing of things and getting into some work projects (finishing a ...

Technical glitches… I think

There seems to be something wrong with my site setup at the moment… pictures arent’ uploading, things aren’t updating like they should. Not sure if it’s a random problem, or something worse (my first incident with a hack came up recently), but it’s stopping me posting things I’ve wanted to add here (and pics). More ...

I Write Like…

I write like Stephen King I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing! Apparently… (Yes, another web meme thing, but given the topic, I really couldn’t resist trying this one. Not a bad answer to see, really!) Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Now this is cool: Netflix on Wii

Now this is cool: Netflix on Wii
Not in Australia (yet), but I’m really hoping it’s only a matter of time before Netflix gets in on the act locally: Wii becomes third console to stream Netflix It’s a triple crown for Netflix. Beginning in the spring, the Wii will become the last of the three current video game consoles to get instant ...

Here’s what we should do Rupert

Here's what we should do Rupert
In response to this recent news: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/10/09/2710281.htm Murdoch warns Google: it’s time to pay What we all really need to do is stop linking to News Ltd sites. Stop blogging about them, stop submitting to Digg, Stumbleupon, linking on Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Murdoch appears not to want this… unless we pay, of course. It’s a ...

Tell me about your Internet usage

Well, that’s what someone asked me today. By complete accident, I was called by a Swinburne University Psychology department phone poll, which gave this very interesting opportunity to answer a bunch of questions about my Internet habits. She told me it would take about 20 minutes, but in the end it took 45 minutes. But ...
