O hai, “The 9pm Team Australia”, being a podcast long overdue. stilgherrian.com/edict/00027/

Previous experience suggests that from here it’ll be an hour until the podcast is uploaded into its blog post.

The recording and editing of the podcast is done. Now for the final mix and render and other post-production.

I have made and consumed my chicken curry. Time to head back to the podcast production. Back when it’s finished, later this evening.

The strategy of registering negative domains to protect your brand is neither “unusual” or “bizarre”. Press Gallery, please get out more.

Reports on abbottlies.com.au get the angle wrong. Registering negative domains is common. You just don’t delegate it to your own site.
