Radio Australia stuff, Jan 23 2009
For those listening to my slot on Radio Australia’s Breakfast Show, here’s what I was talking about:
- Inauguration fever: How it may have tipped the way we use the Net, just like the election did. (People who weren’t there weren’t googling, they were twittering and facebooking.)
- ‘Dark ages’ White House:The White House runs on ‘six year old versions of Microsoft software’; press office officials use Gmail. Website doesn’t get updated until evening of first day. Or is it a case of Macopia?
- Shock, horror: Windows 7 might actually be quite good
and some stuff we didn’t have time to talk about, but which tickled me:
- Brits find setting up a mobile as tricky as moving bank accounts
- Booty calls: Entourage’s Jeremy Piven is offered a $1 mln spokesman deal after mass messaging (‘massaging’?) for company
