Stilgherrian’s links for 02 October 2008 through 06 October 2008, covered in peanut butter and cat fur:
- Tragedy mars Leena’s run for governor | Bangkok Post: I wouldn’t have made as much fun of this story if I’d had the full details. While Bangkok governor candidate Leena Jangjanya was safely rescued from a canal durign a publicity stunt, her campaign manager Teerasak Sitanont drowned.
- We can’t afford to keep Sydney running: Rees | smh.com.au: New South Wales’ new Premier reckons we can’t afford to run Australia’s largest city. That strikes me as odd. Where did all the money go? Is he looking in the right places?
- I saved Telstra, says Trujillo | Australian IT: Telstra’s boss does bit of auto-hagiography. Given that he’s talking up how much he achieved, does that mean there’s some disaster about to be revealed?
- What I want from an e-book reader… | Doc Holds Fourth: Steve “Doc” Baty’s requirements for a e-book reader. I particularly like “I can ‘loan’ my copy of a book to a friend by transferring it to their reader. If I do that, it’s no longer on my reader. This could also act as a way to give people Gifts.”
