Saving Your Voice or Saving Theirs?

Tweet Four of Australia’s regional television networks are urging viewers to campaign for changes to Australian media ownership laws which restrict their market penetration and dominance but they won’t come clean with audiences on what the changes could mean. The networks — Prime, WIN, Imparja and Southern Cross Austereo — feel imperiled by new media players including streaming apps ...

Fairfax. What is it good for? Absolutely Nothing

Tweet I’d like to say I’m unsurprised that the two local Fairfax papers in the Southern Highlands/Tablelands have failed to cover a massive local story that will come to the point of no return tonight, but I’m not. Tweet

Off to the District Conference

Tweet Southern Highlands Rotaractors will be joining Rotarians and Rotaractors from over 100 clubs at the District Conference in Canberra this month. Alongside the conference events, there will be a special Rotaract Laser Tag night. It will be a great chance to catch up with old friends and make lots of new ones while hearing ...

Kohl’d as Ice

Tweet I’ve had a little run in with a US department store, Kohls. It started on April 14 when I received a notification, addressed to ‘Todd Holland’ with account details for my new Kohl’s account, which I didn’t create. At first, I thought it was spam or phishing, but the store is legit and the ...

It’s a Sad World 1

Tweet What a melancholic world it would be if all letters to the editor and all contributions to a debate were devoid of humour, rhetoric and, yes, even sarcasm. Sadder still if it was up to the editor of the paper to filter out all correspondence with even a hint of these attributions. Yet that ...

East Bowral, Actually 1

Tweet In light of the new push to re-name that suburb east of Bowral to something more befitting (I have heard ‘Bowral Gardens’ mentioned as a probable alternative), please see below some further suggested names for residents to consider. If the aim is to disassociate from big brother Olde Bowral, then perhaps West Roberston will ...

Rotary VS Rotaract Twitter Showdown

Rotary VS Rotaract Twitter Showdown
Tweet Visual.ly has just released a bunch of tools that allow users to display stats from Twitter and Facebook in infographics. I used one of the tools to compare the Twitter accounts @Rotary and @Rotaract. Rotary monstered Rotaract on almost all the measurements. While on one hand the results were unsurprising, on the other hand ...

It’s Just a Conference

Tweet In 2010, I attended the Asia Pacific Regional Rotaract Conference in Sydney. It was the first time APRRC had been held in Australia. Evidently, Australians had been conspicuous by their absence from conferences elsewhere. The Sydney conference was a good first attempt, given many of the organisers had never been to one before. Nonetheless, ...

I Like My Work

Tweet I’m looking for work at the moment, which is always an interesting experience. I found a flexible, interesting job for a social media coordinator. Given I started a company doing this sort of work, I figured I ought to apply for this one. It’s not until you are forced to sit down and spell ...
