Since we’re approaching the end of 2014, here’s my usual list of the most-read posts on this website.
This represents only the material published right here, not things I write for money elsewhere and which have a far higher readership. It doesn’t include traffic to the home page, the about page, or anything else on the site that isn’t an actual blog post.

- May Reza Berati be the last, Mr Abbott. I was in a mood that night, but I think the writing stands up.
- Operation Sovereign Borders, sinister and banal. My reaction to Mick Kinley, acting chief executive officer of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) shrugging off concerns that Australia removes safety equipment from the lifeboats we put asylum seekers on before telling them to go home.
- Adventures in Identity: Still struggling with Google+, from January.
- Guilty of being a teenager in a public place, in which I kick off about the actions of the police in Mosman.
- Algorithms and the Filter Bubble, Take 3, being the recording of my guest lecture at UTS in April. This reminds me that I haven’t posted the updated version from the second half of the year. Oops.
- Tone-Deaf Abbott no statesman, never will be, my comment on the Prime Minister’s message on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
- Announcing 5at5, my new daily email letter, which explains itself.
- The 9pm Shire, one of my favourite episodes of The 9pm Edict podcast.
- A loving profile of Tony Abbott, which simply embeds the video of American TV host John Oliver’s roasting of Abbott.
