  • 'Ex-Taliban diplomat hooked on iPhone'. It's a cute hook for the real story, which is about the spread of communications technology in Afghanistan.
  • Further to Malcolm's post below, Dengue Fever is also a band. It claims to 'combine Cambodian pop music and lyrics with psychedelic rock'.
  • A survey of the 47 protectionist measures introduced by G20 countries since they promised not to introduce protectionist measures.
  • Until I saw this Foreign Correspondent piece on the ABC last Tuesday night, I had no idea China had taken such an active interest in Antarctica. Beautiful pictures too.
  • 'If there's one thing the global financial crisis ought to teach us it is the extreme analytical difficulty of forecasting any big disruption in a well established pattern of relationships.' Good North Korea op-ed by Sheridan.
  • China is entering the huge 150-seat jet market, currently dominated by the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320. And it's in a hurry.
