’Pong and I need a driver
this Monday lunchtime 13 October through to the night of Tuesday 14 for our “road trip” to Cowra to film a project related to One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) (pictured) which is happening nearby.
This is a paid gig, although you probably won’t make enough to retire just yet. You’ll need a driver’s license that’ll satisfy our hire car company, and we’ll cover all food and refreshments, plus overnight accommodation at the delightfully named and oh-so-luxurious Alabaster Motel.
We’ll also have mobile broadband Internet access along the way, testing out our Telstra NextG card. I’ll also be taking advantage of that to produce a special edition of Stilgherrian Live. May the gods have mercy upon our souls. And yours.
The shooting schedule is pretty relaxed, so you’ll probably have time to explore the wonders of Cowra while we’re filming at the school. This gig might well suit a photographer. But I will admit that everything’s rather… um… flexible at the moment.
If you’re interested, please email email@example.com or phone +61 407 623 600. If you get voicemail it just means I’m at the
gym or the goddam battery has run out again.
[Update Sunday 12 October: The dates have just been changed. This is turning into a… fascinating project. I am not stressed at all, no Sir!]

I wish I could. But I can’t.
Ok, the dates have changed. We’re now leaving Sydney on Wednesday afternoon and returning Thursday night. Ah, the media!
Boy do I wish I could but alas, it just isn’t possible!! Good luck!!
Apparently we now have a driver organised. Only 24 hours ahead of when we depart, so that’s all OK. [Reaches for vodka bottle.]
