the GES was locally fearless
My uncle Andy used to work there,
I still have the lead slugs he gave
us kids with our names on...
the ability, at age 9,
to reproduce your name
from a machine artifact,*
...something I have yet
to satisfactorily assuage.
* well, with a stamp pad, and paper...
a regular stationery engine-driver!
...revelling in geekdom...
( sorry Lou... )
...this sounds like a series of working norms that will produce, almost by design, superficial, inaccurate, and poorly analysed “stories” that just happen to perpetuate the interests of the already powerful.
<reminiscences, early 21st century>
I remember it was raining
that Labour Day they cracked
the Great Game's DNA...
sluicing away the webs,
veils and screens...
We were a torrent of bits
acting as one -
pooling our resources,
eddies not snarls,
going with the flow,
putting the luv

which part of chch is that?
Could be a nice twist for the harbour region's marketing

“must understand complex specialist information”
... but whatever happened to MSM reporters having "Rounds", specialist areas in which they built up knowledge, contacts and credibility, usually under the tutelage of some seasoned editor, or, er, grizzled 'hack' ...

Not just her, but Gerry "Scorched Earth" Brownlee and Hekia "Pariah" Parata as well - that's quite some torrent we now have gouging the country...
I see a GCSB employee, agent CX (110) has been
put on "gardening leave"
What happened to agents 86 and 99?
The border between chaos and control
still seems parlous and porous....
the Police are always head hunting
The Police are Head Hunters (MC)??!
maybe all the gangs are just undercover brothers....
take me to your Leader (writer)
...the sort of pseudo-anonymity...
...given to Editorial writers...
they can get to write the most alarming tosh!
…visions of Keith running from the Dole office (for that is what it should be called) with a Massively Swollen Dongle
I see what you did there
Dole with Ng in = dongle
this illustrated fable is writing itself in the cloud:
Dongle Keyhost – tilting at Winzmills…
The Giant Vulnerability quaked,
its leopard skin spots changing feebly,
before the Massively Swollen Dongle,
are you being servered?
queried the enabled Filewizard,
as he began the ancient rites
we all crash down….”
