SBS Down Under
Would the real Kenny Rogers please stand up
I went to the Kenny Rogers concert on Friday night at the State Theatre. Now before you start - it was fantastic. He was funny, the crowd loved it (admittedly I was one of the youngest people there) & he sang all his hits - The Gambler, Lucille, Lady, Coward of the County, Ruby and that old favourite...

Throwing away your old phone is very baaaaaaaaad...
Great pick-up from the lads over at our Australian Windows Mobile blog on what really happens when old phones get recycled. Made me chuckle. :-) Robbie

It's best to prioritise things before your head explodes...
With enduring thanks to Scott Adams . What a crazy couple of months. With TechEd, user group visits, partner roundtables, press interviews, distribution events, Partner conference, meetings with HP, Citrix, Kaseya, Intel, Dell, Optus etc, a kazillion MBA assignments, internal training for this...

This is just cool
The future is getting closer every day. Great article in today's Sydney Morning Herald about the first magazine in the world to be published using electronic ink. Just on the cover & an ad for Ford inside, but the possibilities are endless. Conjures up images of the constantly updating newspapers...

When does a job become a career and a career a vocation?
Personal thoughts written on a soggy Saturday afternoon, so turn off now if you're looking for something a little more highbrow. Image courtesy of Jon at www.geek.on.net TechEd is done & dusted for another year meaning I can now get on with the real business of launching SBS & EBS onto...

I need to get me one of these...
Well TechEd has finished for another year & my summary & thoughts will be coming soon. Before I get into that though I just HAD to share with you the single best thing I've seen since, well, I don't think I've actually seen anything this good: A RIDE-ON ESKY! Just imagine rocking up to your party...

Turning one's mirror on oneself
I was in in Brisbane overnight for the Synnex reseller roadshow (lots of interest in SBS 2008) & so was flying back to Sydney this morning. What followed was three very annoying examples of customer non-service, all of which have me vowing never to use that airline, that telco or that parking service...

A useful endeavour or is it just common sense?
Another great Dilbert today (or maybe I just got bored on the plane coming back from WW Partner Conference in Houston - with thanks to Scott Adams ). Anyway, personal insight coming so look away now if you wish. :-) It's particularly relevant to me for as of this week I enter the final stages of the...

The march of progress, or are we tied to our business?
Sitting in the Sydney Qantas Club on my way to Adelaide for the next round of the Wave launch events. As I look around it strikes me that at least 1/3, if not 1/2 of the people here are tap-tap-tapping away on their PC (including me), & taking advantage of the free Telstra wireless. Even just 5 years...
