Public Address 21 November 2012 - Triangulated by Fools

Triangulated by Fools
9:22 Nov 21, 2012 in Hard News by Russell Brown
I deliberately avoided writing anything about the Labour leadership last week because I had no interest in being part of a media tally for either side - which I could see would inevitably be the case. Apart from anything else,...

Pipes: Understanding Hackers
8:35 Nov 21, 2012 in Speaker by Amberleigh Jack
I'm not a hacker. I know very little about the technical ins and outs of what they do. Put a system in front of me and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a 1 and a 0....

Australia And The South China Sea: Another Foreign Policy Blunder Looming

James O’Neill: The overblown rhetoric from the United States has led at least one commentator to describe so-called ‘analyses’ of the South China Sea situation as “the biggest load of analytical rubbish about South East Asia to emerge since the CIA mistook bee feces for a Soviet-supplied biological weapon in 1981.” More>>

People's Candidates: A Peaceful Political Revolution Begins In France

Alastair Thompson profiles Philippe Mazuel one of 86 largely unknown political contenders who stepped up to become the "People's Candidate" for France's 2017 Presidential election. More>>
