  • We have recently published posts by Prakash Mirchandani on Defence media relations. We failed to disclose that Prakash previously worked as a media and communications consultant to the ADF and other Federal agencies. The posts will be amended to make note of this.
  • The centre of gravity of the global aviation industry is moving to the Asia Pacific.
  • Timor's e-volution: Facebook is big in Dili, and Twitter is catching on too.
  • Blogger and lawyer Peter Timmins looks at Fergus Hanson's e-diplomacy paper and calls for cultural change at DFAT.
  • The world is close to eradicating the Guinea worm, a thin, meter-long worm living inside the human body, crawling between muscles and bones. A remarkable achievement by Jimmy Carter.
  • 'The World's Toilet Crisis' is a shocking documentary about the lack of sanitation in many developing countries. It is a story of one of the world's deadliest killers, filmed in India but representative of many other countries.
  • Brilliant musical history of the Soviet Union. (If you're asking yourself, 'Why the Tetris symbolism'', the answer is, it was a Soviet invention.)
