“Melbourne the food capital of Australia? Yes – and things just got a lot better.” (Age)
I shouldn’t read things like this when we’re about to head into winter over here.
Just in time for Halloween parties…
Things I should remember
(And my lovely, lovely brother just humoured me by acting out sudo with me)
“The debate about religious freedom versus society’s norms has strong similarities to a row that engulfed England in the 16th Century, says Steve Tomkins.” (BBC)
“It is the 21st century, and we are all each other’s Hummel figurines.” (Wired)
Two blogs I have been enjoying lately are design dyke and boicozine. The Antimix Podcasts at boicozine are particularly excellent.
An article on the state of satire in Australia contained this line, which made me wonder exactly how bad are things over there:
“Because the Government and the Opposition agree – the ABC is too “leftist”. This is a landmark moment in Australian political classification.”
Winter is definitely coming. It’s going to be grey and rainy and cold and damp and miserable for months. Last night’s sunset was spectacular – the sky was filled with gold – but it was dark really early.
But, in cheery geek news, students in Australia are coming up with innovative applications for mobile phone-based technologies.
Blah blah blah. But maybe it’ll keep the yuppies out of Hackney:
“‘Hackney came bottom of all of the country’s 434 local authorities in a survey that examined local crime statistics with environment issues, lifestyles, exam results and employment rates for locals,’ said Phil Spencer, co-presenter with Kirstie Allsopp of Location, Location, Location” (Observer)
