Before Project TOTO takes me to Tanzania — in just 20 hours — I had to get ActionAid Australia‘s blogs online. Done! With, oh, hours to spare!
Stressed much? Oh yes!
Archie@ActionAid is the new personal blog of CEO Archie Law. His first post, From Melbourne to New York, Phnom Penh, Johannesburg and back, reveals his not-very-secret musical background and why he’s dedicated a good chunk of his life to the international humanitarian and development sector.
It’s Archie’s first entrance into the blogosphere so, please, have a read and let him know what you’d like to hear about. You can also follow Archie on Twitter.
If you’re interested in the technical details, read on…

I’ve finally launched the website for my adventures to the Australia 2020 Summit and beyond: Topic 9 at topic9.com.au.
It’s pretty sparse to begin with, and I’m not quite sure exactly what I’ll be doing there — so suggestions are more than welcome. Some thoughts so far are:
- Gathering links to everyone else’s writing about this topic area for the Summit.
- Articles on people or ideas on how government could work in the future.
- Interviews with the delegates before they hit Canberra.
- Act as a central point of contact for whatever media coverage we can generate out of the summit, whether I go or not.
I certainly need to spice up the design a bit. I’ve kept the Tarski theme as used on this website and Skank Media for consistency, but it needs a tad more differentiation. soon, my precious ones, soon…
Any other ideas?
[Update 17 February 2010: The website at topic9.com.au has been killed. For the moment, I’ve linked to the pages at the Internet Archive.]
I’m currently poking around with this website’s layout, especially with how tags work, while also getting the Skank Media website online. I’ve added a “related posts” feature, but tags may behave a bit weirdly while I’m fiddling.
The volume of comments this week has meant the “Recent Comments” list at the bottom of each page changes far faster than most readers can track. I’ll see if I can fix that over the long weekend. Suggestions welcome.
I’ve just upgraded WordPress (the tool I use for this website) and the Tarski theme all in one go without following the proper procedure. Because I am so clever.
Tags are currently broken. Tags were remarkably easy to fix when I read and followed the procedure.
