  • Hard News: Everybody's News, in reply to Carol Stewart,

    Personally I am rather keen on professional standards for scientists and engineers.

    I take it you didn't watch the video then...

    Bringing down the house...

    But there was more than that. Winer and others like him had demonstrated that what we now know as “citizen” or “social” media could not only do the job of crisis reporting differently than established media organisations could – it could, in some important ways, do it better.

    also true for "Citizen Engineers and Scientists" ...

    and also let's not forget the other 9/11 - in 1973 when the CIA helped orchestrate the overthrow of Allende in Chile

    (proving that the distance is material to the item)

    I'm sure even Brownlee in his woodworking heyday would have stressed that old saw - measure twice and cut once...

    today’s withdrawal of most charges.

    NZ Police seem to have cornered the market in clowning around in public - their back-pedalling is becoming very accomplished in recent times...

    I think someone posted these videos elsewhere in PAS - but worth a view - a drive around the central city (linked from The Press site)

    We just found out last week that our house will have to be raised and new foundations laid, (no mention of any work on the land itself) not to mention every room in the house having to be relined and painted etc - not looking forward to that shift out and upheaval -which in all likelihood will be years away (time to buy one of those hydraulic house-lifting trucks - there is gonna be lotsa work for them in the future, not so much for old school graphic designers, sigh)

    Murray Cammick used to take us there on Rip It Up deadlines.

    occasionally (read as 'days when lots of mail orders for Duran Duran books hit the RIU PO box') we might be treated to the Vietnamese place at the back of the Civic, facing Aotea square, if my memory serves me well...

  • Hard News: Complaint and culture, in reply to Ross Mason,

    re-pressed memories...

    I recall a programme (forerunner to Media7?) years ago – can’t think of his name – who got stuck into the media each week.

    Fourth Estate - Brian Priestly was the presenter,
    he still contributes regular letters to the papers in Chchch.

  • Southerly: Tower Insurance Have Some Bad…, in reply to Sacha,

    Brown(lee)-knowsing...

    A rare admission from the Fieldmarshall this morning (though without any consequence, naturally).

    ...and delivered with very little real regret, this 'apology' from Brownlee is nothing more than a limp 'my bad!' Easily said, with massive repercussions for many individuals - and how convenient for the powers that be - that is the core of Brownlee's job, bullying and misleading - the master illusionist at work!
