Random stuff - and politics

What ever you do or don’t like about the Rudd Government (or is that the Labour Government? We tend to blur these things, but we shouldn’t) this little story should give you some insight into the man Kevin Rudd. Now lets see if he follows through!

Update - the group 78 people were forcible evicted.

Mollom – the Drupal spam management system created by the creator of Drupal Dries Buytaert - has blocked 100 Million spams. We use it here but recently its been letting a few through on the comment system. so our apologies for that.

Personal Blog:
Social Networks: Facebook mostly, I am trying to finish my PhD so my online free time is limited at the moment. Am interested to check out twitter but realise it will take up more time than I know I have! :)
Current Employment: Full time PhD student at Griffith University. Lecture at the Qld Institute of Business & Technology. Run my own business in which I do software training in Nvivo software and I also make jewellery and mosaics for sale (completely 'un-tech' which I love)

What is your reason/motivation for blogging?

I blog to promote my book 'Tech girls are chic, not just geek' - which is a not for profit project aimed at smashing the geek stereotype and encourage school girls to consider a career in Information Technology. The book is distributed free to school girls across Australia, with 8000 distributed in Australia and overseas since March 2008. I use the blog as a way to communicate the various activities that involve the book (such as careers events and expos where it is distributed for free). I dont know how many people read it but at least it is a way for me to keep track of everything that happens.

Photography, Patronage of the Arts and Geek Girls

I have been taking lots of photos lately. Last weekend I took 2,222 photos for Kitty’s Wedding, from which I have uploaded 474 of Kitty’s wedding to my flickr account, and a few of the very best to my RedBubble Account where they can be purchased.

Yesterday Jethro Management sponsored a homeschoolers Art Show. Along with numerous place prizes we also picked the best in the competition and awarded a $50 gift voucher to one very excited and talented artist, Joel. There was some spectacular art by the children and it was very hard choosing first place. Joels 3 dimensional seascape is shown below. More art competition photos on Flickr.

Once again I got some awesome shots of the girls playing games. All the Girl Geek Dinner photos are up on Flickr.
