    topic of same sex marriages As a resident of Throsby in general and Dapto in particular can I just say that Mrs Hay does NOT represent my views on this matter I am a husband and a father and to be honest I m a little tired of people claiming to fight to protect my marriage when I have given them no permission to do so and feel that there

  • An open letter to the "Creatives" | James Purser
    sell the films and video productions you make and the books you write But I can t With rare exception the things I wish to purchase are either locked into a system that prevents me from using the content as I wish note as I wish legally not sharing it around with other people just watching on the devices I choose to watch it on or is simply unavailable because the services that would be taking my pretty durable money are stuck with the old region based ideology For example I am quite fond of the show Eureka I can either purchase this via iTunes for 2 99 an episode and be limited to only viewing it on iDevices or I could um I could setup a proxy in the states get myself a proxy address so I can get a pre paid US credit card and then I could purchase it off Amazon for 1 99 US an episode It s exactly because of this reluctance to take our shiny money via the interwebs that piracy is an issue People if they can t find a legal convenient way to get their entertainment are going to gravitate towards convenient

  • Logitech CEO Slams GoogleTV - Or does he? | James Purser
    the Logitech CEO was railing against was the Logitech implementation and the content blocking by the Cable and FTA channels in the US Google TV is a great concept Google TV has the potential to completely disrupt living room except that was not the case when we launched Logitech Revue Logitech Revue was launched with some I wouldn t call it beta properly but a software that was not complete and not tuned to what the consumers want at the living room He then goes on to admit that the original sales strategy was massively flawed We ve made commitment we just build a lot because we expected everybody to line up for Christmas and buy these boxes 300 that was a big mistake 300 was just too much for the Revue and to be honest it s a mistake that a lot of android manufacturers have been making However once they shifted the price to 99 we get this As you know we dramatically reduced the price of the box to what we thought the consumers valued it and actually doing fine So from a Logitech CEO slams GoogleTV won t every play with them again we now have

  • GooglePlus - Not A Facebook Thing | James Purser
    Googles other social projects such as Buzz or Wave which wasn t a social project but the media do like to pretend that it was Except here s a thought What if GooglePlus isn t all about competing with the Facebook What if instead it s about being a part of a greater whole What if instead of going for the short term Google was playing the long game Think about it Google s aim is to become the platform de riguer for people who work online Through services such as Gmail Gdocs Gcalendar Gvoice and Gapps Google provides a virtual workplace that meets most peoples needs Wave was an attempt to improve that workplace through a truly collaborative environment and still is by the way Wave Ain t Dead GooglePlus adds two things to the virtual office It adds a virtual whiteboard just create a circle of your fellow employees and it adds the ability to meet without everyone having to be in the same office Hangouts mean that a distributed business or even a bricks and mortar business with multiple branches can conduct meetings access shared resources and make decisions without having to a Pay through the nose

  • Pollies to the left of me, Journos to the right of me | James Purser
    become the fashion No one wants to hear about details on policies what they want to hear about is Leadership spills leaks in cabinet and whether Tony Abbott is going to be able to find a shop in Goulburn that he hasn t already done a Press Event at And you know what the journos and pollies are doing about this current state of play Blaming each other Now before I go on I should mention that I think there are good hard working politicians and good hard working journalists out there who are trying to buck the trends never let it be said that I have tarred everyone with the same brush However let it also be said that neither side is solely to blame for the current swamp Nope They both are Politicans and journalists live in a symbiotic relationship though I m sure some would called it parasitic who the parasite is depends on your point of view They feed each other and nourish each other so they can both gain the benefit Politicians get the coverage and journalists get the stories any imbalance in the system is a result of both politicians and journalists looking for the easy route Take Tony Abbott for example Abbott is a man who long ago realised that his best bet was treating the electorate like a bunch of six year olds Time and time again he s released a sound bite as his policy statement Great big new tax and Stop the boats are probably the two that get the most exercise these days Time and again we ve seen these Sound Bite Policy s re printed in the papers and broadcast on the news with barely a whisper of actual analasys The politician is feeding the media what they

  • Occupy what now? | James Purser
    universal health care we have a well regulated financial sector we have a Uni loans system that is the envy of the world and when it comes down to it the division of wealth while a thing that no one is every going to be happy with unless you re at the very very top of course isn t actually that bad The catchcry of the occupy movement is We are the 99 This is a reference to the US wealth split where 1 of the population controls more wealth than the other 99 We don t have that in Australia Hell if we expand that to a global 1 99 split then all of a sudden we become the 1 Look I m not saying Australia doesn t have problems sweet crap do we have problems Asylum Seekers Indigenous Health Gambling problems Drugs and Alcohol and a competition to see who can do the least on important environmental energy issues However these problems aren t going to be fixed by a sing a long by the tent in the middle of your city of choice Instead it s going to require that the people singing protest songs and handing out pamphletes engage more deeply in the political process Or possibly volunteering to help remote indigenous communities or how about qualifying as a social worker and working with people with addictions In Australia we are not at the stage where communal sitins are required We don t need Soviets setting up in each city and yes considering the Socialist Alliance and other similar groups are involved I m going to call them Soviets what we need is a way to avoid getting to the point where that may in fact be required You know what the most dangerous thing about
