  • Hard News: Game Lorde,

    Haven't seen any of her shows. But the videos I have seen seem to focus on Lorde's face. Someimes pretty, sometimes haunting. Is that the "sexualisation" he's complaining about?

  • Speaker: The Strange Tax on Your Internet,

    Normally I'd support this, but the involvement of Farrar makes me suspect.

    David Farrar has lots of interests, some of which are not political :-) He has been a very effective member and supporter of InternetNZ for many many years and his position on topics relating to the internet have been very consistent, no matter who is in power or what various party policies of the day happen to be.

  • Hard News: The shaky ground of…,

    This testing may tell you something about your tempriment, or not. The evidence is to the latter. However, it doesn't at alll work as a predictor of your suitability for a particular job.

    "Hey, we've never had an opera lover in this role."
    "That must mean opera lovers aren't suitable for this job."

    "Hey, the only person in our team that loves opera is Emily."
    "Doesn't sound very compatible with the team".

    Emily gets the pink slip.

    ================

    The lesson from all this? If you're an opera lover...lie.

  • Hard News: Game Lorde,

    Given Lorde's own laudable (geddit) use of the Internet to get her music out there, it does seem a little short sighted. And yes, I will buy the album when it is released.

  • Legal Beagle: The Police Investigation…,

    So, a tweet suggests that what this is saying is...

    1. The police got the law wrong;
    2. That's ok.

    I say, damn straight, if the GCSB can't be above the law, who the hell can be?

  • Legal Beagle: The Police Investigation…,

    Question for other readers. Am I the only one that found this article incomprehensible?

    Just what point(s) are you trying to make, Graeme?

  • Hard News: This time it's Syria,

    Military action should be a non resort. Where are the sanctions and other no violent options being discussed? Surely the NSA can grab all of Assad's assets?

  • Southerly: Continuing After A Short Interruption, in reply to David Haywood,

    Can you suggest a rapid cure?

    Judging by that wikipedia reference, yes.

    Lose weight and grow younger.

    Glad to have been of assistance.

  • Hard News: Fluency, ease of manner - and…,

    in other news, I see that the GCSB themselves are not being allowed to appear before the TICS select committee. That's hardly front footing anything.
