quick update: haven’t posted for two weeks

I finally had a chance to come near here today, and realised that I hadn’t posted for a fortnight! It’s not that I haven’t had anything to say, I’ve just had way too much on at work, uni, with ANZIIF coming up, and starting to prep for Parachute Festival in January. Uni has been “nicely” full-on recently, with the usual (and then some) dramas over assignments etc. Being in my final semester, I’ve allowed myself to become a little more vocal in raising and discussing issues as they occur. I’ve lost that desire to not annoy lecturers who may be over me later on in my course, and actually demand that they act/perform appropriately. It’s only been in one case (which I can’t discuss at the moment), but I figured that with 200 students  each paying between $600 and $3000 for the paper, there should be some accountability and responsiveness to issues raise by the entire class. Suffice to say, the HOD agrees too so enough of that.

It’s pretty much been an assignment or test every day for the past while; but I did get an impressive 83% in by IS written test. Two of the five short essays got 10/10, so I was quite happy. Don’t know the relativity of this yet, but from the sounds of talking to the tutor the class didn’t fare that well. Awesome!!

I’ll chuck a YouTube video in here:

Came across the guys at 37Signals doing some great PR. They pulled off a market valuation of $100 billion by selling 0.000000001% of the company for US$1. Very clever and awesome move really.

I’ll have to do a full post later today or tomorrow (possibly even get it written at work tonight), but I wanted to at least post something sooner rather than later since I hadn’t for a while.
