I think I should have a piece in The West today, but haven’t got the paper yet. I usually wait for the free version at work on Monday, but might have to make an exception this time. Tell me what you think. Hopefully I’ll get letters from Paul Murray, Pam (I’m still here dearies) Cassselllas, Michele Philips and Zoltan Kovacs congratulating me on my work.
Was at the future of journalism conference last night. It really was journos vs bloggers. Here’s Tama Leaver, William Bowe & Tim Burrowes versus the journos gathered round the beer and pizza. You can see Outrage Cohen spiking the pizzas on the left. (Sorry about the quality, but sometimes journos and bloggers benefit from blurry pics). An exception was Karina Carvalho who was smouldering seductively at the door. Unfortunately she didn’t have her Michael Jackson Jacket on.
It was quite interesting. Lots of stuff about how good journalism is going to be paid for. Helping the bottom line will be a reluctance to pay a member of the public anything for submitting breaking news photos. Perhaps there needs to be a citizen journo agent who will get them their just desserts? “To each according to their needs” Cohen might be a candidate.
Liam Phillips from WAtoday bore an uncanny resemblance to Warwick Fairfax. Scary. ABC’s kim Jordan came across as a bit of a wanker. Well a lot of a wanker actually. His Twitter denialism was also very, very funny. This was about the future of journalism right Kim? The most amusing moment was when people were told to turn their mobile phones off. Err, future guys. Anyone who did is not going to be part of the future.
Outrage Cohen, who was spruiking Communism or suchlike for the union last night, sent in this link for winking pants. I’d go blue eyes I think.
I saw this car sticker which reads “My Boss is a Jewish Carpenter.”Is that Mr Rosemeyer in Yokine? I thought he was a cabinet maker?
Worst well everyone. Time to start sending in letters complaining about my article today.
