    technicolour yawn...

    ...one of the rich variety of antipodean synonyms for:

    Which reminds me that Barry McKenzie creator, Barry Humphries, has been awarded the Australian of the Year in UK - it's not immediately apparent if this is an expats award, or just that he was awarded it while in the UK...

    the last of the wood years...

    Dragon Year

    isn't it more specifically the Year of the Black Dragon?
    or more ominously the 'Black Water Dragon'!!
    a mercenary year to come?
    unpredictable at least...

    The best copyright protection money can buy...
    an interesting list of the US politicians who supported the SOPA bill, and how much they got in campaign donations from big media and other companies with a stake in its passing.

  • Hard News: The Mega Conspiracy,

    Mega mage game implode...
    Computerworld has a piece on the implications for unwary 'Cloud' users as well...
    And who is to say that Google or Apple* might not 'go bad' or be perceived by some Hegemony to be a threat to their interests and also be 'legally restrained'...
    Witness the reaction to Wikipedia being down for a day - and they only store public domain information !
    I wonder if New Zealand's Police Cyber Crimes unit was also involved or if they were bypassed by the FBI?
    Perhaps there is a case for any action like this to have Cyber Receivers or Administrators, to ensure the continuation of legal services while illegal actions are investigated - as having all eggs in one basket can have dire economic results for affected individuals and companies...

    Once again I wonder if this is part of the price for NZ's admission to the TPPA, jumping when the US copyright moguls crack the whip...

    *Apple's new create your own iBooks app has a sting hidden in the fine print...

    The wry toffs...

    Failure seems the only option now for them
    – and Parker & Marryatt – come 2013.

    I seriously doubt they'll last that long, it feels like the scene
    is being set for a no confidence statutory takeover...
    the question remains whether the duopoly of Parker
    and Marryatt are complicit - they seem the kind of
    folk who'd have an exit strategy - Parker
    was talking about going to live in the south of France
    (or some such) if he wasn't re-elected last time...
    and Marryatt doesn't seem to much care where he is...


    Dead horse or pumping irony...

    Felicity Price or her company CPR...

    It is telling that Felicity Price resigned from her own company
    (that her husband still runs mind you) to do this work 'independently'.
    I guess it would be a bad look if the city was seen to need CPR
    especially when we are pretty sure it is already brain dead...


    Putting a motion to the floor...

    Again, turds can’t be polished.

    Sir, I beg your indulgence on this matter

    Coulrophobia…

    …with so many opportunities being presented by these clowns…

    Fact is they didn’t need to buy the World Buskers Festival
    outright, they are the Buskers Festival, buckets of cash ‘n’ all!
    Also what the story Sofie linked to earlier, doesn’t make clear, is that once again this statement was a joint action by Parker and Marryatt with no other consultation and Councillor Yani Johanson…

    who chairs the council’s communications committee, said he was only informed of the review 20 minutes before a statement was sent to the media late yesterday afternoon.

    more detail and comments here…

    Chchch has a very bad case of cuckoos in the nest
    but usually parasites aren’t dumb enough to kill the host…
