Just found out it's the 17th. Not the 11th (as I assumed). Not only am I grieving the seamless passing of time and the speedy unravelling of my mortality with it, I've also been drinking some skim milk waaaaay past the Use By.

Thanks man, appreciate it. That was the case last year when we found a routine that worked. I'm hoping it's the case again, but with another on the way I'm bracing myself and thinking ahead.

Tuesday tweet of sadness. My son isn't sleeping. Up several times a night. For months now. I sleep on the nursery floor half the time. Too tired, no concrete routine. Can't wake to work before the dawn. So I'm not pitching or writing. I'm trying to be ok with that. But I'm not.

No column this weekend. For the past couple of weeks I've been working intensively with to investigate what happened with the death tax fake news during the campaign. We've published the results of that deep dive this morning on

AFP raiding the ABC now too. Let's just take a moment to acknowledge that these actions and the legislation that enable it are unprecedented and gross. This requires a response, and a solution. The Government can't sit apart from this.

Whenever older studio movies gets released on a new format, the artwork gets progressively worse. Someone actually got paid to design that Gremlins cover.

You’ve all seen the “humanity collapse by 2050” post. Today I’m editing a few articles about renewables. The scope for reducing emissions is huge, if our governments could unravel themselves from legacy coal.

Today, the toddler took the cat lovingly by the face and said ‘you’re ugly’. He laughed. At the cat. Our cat, who is gorgeous and deserves better. Chased the toddler around the house: “Tell that cat he’s beautiful” “TELL THAT CAT HE’S BEAUTIFUL.”
