HOW WOULD YOU SPEND $61 BILLION?
APRIL 27, 2022
All week I’ve been wondering what I’d do if I had $61 billion. While my fantasies range from altruistic (an unending tap of money for deserving charities) to downright silly (a custom-built castle for my cats), purchasing Twitter does not make my top ten. But that’s exactly what Elon Musk did this week, prompting a tidal wave of terrible takes and a few very funny ones. If you’re wondering what’s next for the platform, check out this interesting Vox analysis of what changes Musk could make.
IT'S ELECTION TIME... ARE WE THERE YET?
APRIL 13, 2022
My day started with an early-morning FaceTime from my mother letting me know that, three days in, she’s sick of the federal election campaign. I get it. Between Opposition leader Anthony Albanese’s figures gaffe, Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s TikTok gatecrasher and George Christensen’s One Nation defection, another six weeks feels daunting.
CRAWLING TO THE FINISH LINE
MARCH 30, 2022
It’s Wednesday and I already feel like I am crawling to the finish line of this working week. Covid has well and truly arrived at my kid’s school, so he’s learning at home again for the time being, bringing back some truly horrendous lockdown memories. It’s enough to make parents miss the days of nits – and that’s really saying something!
A DAY OF PROTEST OR CELEBRATION? WHY CAN’T WE HAVE BOTH?
It’s been quite the celebration of International Women’s Day this year. So much so that I am writing you an email about it more than a week since the actual day passed. What was once a day of protest, has morphed into a fortnight of corporate events, government speeches, and cupcakes, oh so many cupcakes.
Part of me thinks that’s not a bad thing.
A SOBERING CLIMATE REMINDER
MARCH 2, 2022
The sky feels heavy this week and not only because clouds full of rain continue to dump their contents across the eastern states. After two years where our news has been dominated by a single story, recent days have brought fresh reasons to worry and more people who need our help.
COVID-19 AND KEYNOTES
FEBRUARY 16, 2022
It was a sleepy start to the year, with many of us choosing to keep mostly to ourselves while playing hide and seek with the Omicron variant. (For those of you who have been sick, had loved ones sick or been going to work where you’re looking after the sick - I hope you’re doing okay.) But with schools going back, restaurants calling our name and parliament sitting again, 2022 finally seems to be kicking into gear.
