AFR : Blogger takes free laptop in his stride

AFR : Blogger takes free laptop in his stride

  • Comments 14

Josh's (or should I say Joshua's) article is in the AFR today. Moira went out to buy the paper, to put it into the old family scrap book.

The article features Darren Rowse, (*apologies for misspelling your surname*) (a Ferrari recipientTrevor Cook (who commented on the events last week) and yours truly - but Josh got my title wrong. I guess he misheard me during the interview. I am the Group Manager, Technical Communities (not Technical Communications, but that does sound more inmportant doesn't it?) 

The article is online, but presented in the AFR'S all new funky flash interface - so no search engine love for the AFR on this one - Blogger takes free laptop in his stride 

BTW, I noticed that Paul Montgomery (aka TinFinger) got the ping from my earlier post. Did you notice the folks listed in his post? I wonder how many of them got a Ferrari????

  • Frank!  I'm mentioned in the TinFinger post... I guess my Ferrari must be lost in the mail ;)

  • paul - you are a funny fellow.

  • Woops, sorry about that Frank. I did mishear... I'll make sure I get it right next time.

  • Miss the paper on the weekend and thought I would try out the article using AFR Access.  But at $3.30 just to read a single article no way!  Fairfax still need to sort out their online strategy.

  • I'd love to view the article, but the AFR told their digital readers to stick it.

  • Progblogger Darren's last name is Rowse, not Rouse.

  • AFR Access is a good idea gone pear-shaped.  I can understand it is just as much a Web application as it is a content Web site but the marriage of the two cumbersome.

    Frank, think it can look better in WPF?

  • thx for the tip scientaestubique - i fixed the spelling

  • Brendon - WPF would be a killer for this. Just have a look at the New York Times reader app.

    I would be more than happy to go in and do some "evangelising" at the AFR if asked.

  • The Times Reader is a bit of puff to get up and running. (sign up to NYT, must run xp/vista, install, run from desktop...)

    Not sure if Fairfax would redo a Web site in WPF after just completing this last year.

    As content is only one piece of the puzzle then what would be interesting is a competitor written in WPF and integration with MS Office/MYOB documents and so forth. Maybe a proof of concept project for NineMSN/Live team?
