Whedon the headlines

One of the things I get to do as an occasional contributor to Gizmodo is write up notable comments from geek celebrities when they make public appearances in Australia. I did that for Stephen Fry a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday I performed the same task for Joss Whedon, who is nipping through Australia […]

An eventful life

Apologies for not updating for a week, but I’ve been at a lot of events. When we last met, I was at G-Force, which turned on the usual OTT entertainment at the Gala Dinner on the first day: This week, I’ve been on the Gold Coast for Microsoft’s annual Tech-Ed conference, which has been the […]

I am feeling the G-Force

The above picture (of me asking a question at last week’s TechLines event) is included for no other reason than to prove yet again I am not photogenic. Today: Lunch may have led to me spraying the word clusterfuck across Twitter a tad liberally, but G-Force did deliver the goods story-wise. For iTnews, I wrote […]

Feel the G-Force

I’m in Melbourne for the next couple of days for the G-Force 2010 conference, which means lots of call centres and IVR and social media and executives rocking out to Aussie classics. The Twitter experience is bound to be better than last year, when the hamster movie was stealing focus. Today’s Streaming column for Lifehacker […]

Conference call confessions

I don’t like conference calls — the sound quality is often poor, there’s not always an obvious system for chiming in and asking questions, and they never start on time. But I sat through iiNet’s results announcements call yesterday, and ended up writing a story about them for iTnews. iTnews also featured a piece from […]

The rest of July and half of August, as written by me

Clearly I’m too slack/busy to do this in mega-detail. So apart from noting that I’ve finally recorded an appearance for Letters & Numbers, I’ll need to be brief. Let’s make some lists of what I’ve had published online since the last entry. iTnews Victoria’s Sheriffs served mobile access to mainframe Sydney staff survive Google’s Wave […]

A couple of days on

So far, Mastercheap is going pretty well. I’m not going to repeat myself, so you can find all the relevant details in the diary posts for day 2 and day 3: Mastercheap Day 2: Keeping Up The Energy Mastercheap Day 3: Resisting Temptation I’ve also put together a Mastercheap FAQ, covering off the details for […]

And so Mastercheap begins

I promise you, it’s still not my intention to only update this blog once a week with a summary of what I’ve written, even if that’s how it might be coming across right now. Mind you, for the next week or so, you’ll be able to get a closer-than-normal look at my daily life, since […]

Week at the knees

I don’t have the excuse of being overseas to explain why I slacked off on daily posts about my activities this week. I guess the best excuse I can come up with is that I was busy writing other stuff. With my enterprise hat on, I produced three stories for iTnews, all of which had […]

Suddenly Monday

Between returning from Hong Kong and hosting visiting family from Canada, the second half of last week was a bit of a rushed blur and blogging once again became a low priority. Despite that, work continued, and I found myself on the virtual pages of CRN, looking at how Harvey Norman has bought out Clive […]
