Forum: Feeding the World - Land, Hunger & Human... →
Wednesday 6 June, Seymour Centre: Free, RSVP required Its estimated that by 2050, world demand for food will increase by 70%. Thats huge. And what are we going to do about it? The potential effects on the developing world, those living in poverty, women are dramatic. In the 1980s, fear propelled by Malthusian thought brought about global initiatives into market forces and food security,...
David Kelly: How to build your creative confidence Resonating entirely, I’ve got that story of primary school too. And even though I found some creative confidence whilst in 6th form - thank you Mrs Egan-Fowler - I’ve lost it again. Have to work on finding it and enticing it out once more.
ifttt.com: "if this then that" →
Totes late on the bandwagon for this one I reckon, but heaps neat site allowing you to create triggers, tasks and ‘recipes’ (haven’t quite got my head around that bit yet) to connect all your social media. Great!
New MyManly campaign Although the video could also be masquerading as a promo for Pentax cameras, its a really cute insight into the sights and sounds of Manly.

Vivid Sydney 2012: Opera House Friday night I schmoozed along to the MCA Artbar launch night. Its going to happen the last Friday of every month - but this one was doubly special as it was also the light-up night for 2012’s Vivid Sydney Festival. Firstly, the MCA Artbar was definitely worth the visit! Having loved the Jurassic Lounge seasons held at the Australian Museum, this was...
So here goes
During the week, I decided I wanted to start a blog. At the time, I was probably procrastinating, as well as talking to a friend about recording memory and diaries and such. So here goes! Those who know me, I’m a big sharer of stuff. Anything I’ve glimpsed, seen, heard, been to, read, I want everyone around to experience it too. And I can talk a lot right. So instead of boring...
