Arthur C. Clarke Predicts the Internet, 1974

"The year is 1974, and Arthur C. Clarke is standing inside one of those cavernous computer centers that held the massive machines of the day. ...

He doesn't call it the internet. But he says that even before the dawn of the twenty–first century, the boy's home will include a computer console – something much smaller than those massive machines humming in the background in 1974 – that provides 'all the information he needs for his everyday life: his bank statements, his theater reservations, all the information you need over the course of living in a complex modern society.' ...

'They will make it possible to live really anywhere we like. Any businessman, any executive, could live almost anywhere on Earth and still do his business through a device like this,' he says. 'It means we won't be stuck in cities. We'll live out in the country or wherever we please and still carry on complete interactions with other human beings as well as computers.' Our cities haven't exactly shrunk. But we're certainly able to connect with each other from wherever we might be."

Opera Australia: coming to a cinema near you

"Opera Australia's first season of cinema screenings has proven so popular it is set to roll out again to an expanded network of between 60 and 70 cinemas across Australia and New Zealand. They're also launching their own independent CD and DVD label and starting TV broadcasts with the ABC.

These three initiatives form part of Opera Australia's digital broadcast strategy designed to combat obstacles of price and location, and reach audiences in a way that fits with contemporary lifestyles."

The Chaser banned from taking the royal wee out of Will and Kate's wedding

"Yep, the royal family has banned the ABC's satirical coverage of the royal wedding, only days before it goes to air, despite initially placing no restrictions on the coverage. While the wedding screens on ABC1 on Friday night, The Chaser team was planning to broadcast its own light–hearted look at the spectacle on ABC2.

Over the Easter weekend, restrictions were put in place – banning use of the wedding footage 'in any drama, comedy, satirical or similar entertainment program or content'. While The Chaser coverage has been banned, channels Nine and Ten are still planning to use commentators such as Dame Edna Everage as part of their coverage. Clarence House, the private office of the Prince of Wales, has gone as far as to warn other media outlets not to supply a feed to The Chaser team. Hopefully they'll still manage to use new social media tools to get the word out on Friday night."
