Coding cultural riches: Investigating indigenous languages in Australia

"It's very fundamental to Aboriginal belief that language and land are connected, and it is appropriate to speak the language of the land on which you're residing. So it was quite natural that Murrinh–Patha would have become the primary language of the indigenous people living on the mission."

(Rachel Nordlinger)

Humorous ad parodying the 100% Percent Pure New Zealand campaign

"ABC's [Australia] advertising show The Gruen Transfer tonight challenges two advertising agencies to put together a pitch for the campaign that will convince Australia to invade New Zealand.

John McKie from 303, Sydney, presents a spoof of the recent 100 % Percent Pure New Zealand tourism series. The spot uses music inspired by two Australian bands, Youth Group and AC DC. The tourism pitch is online at"
(Duncan, The Inspiration Room, 9th July 2008)

[It's encouraging to think that there is enough consensus in Aotearoa/New Zealand to realise the absurdity of wasting inordinate amounts of public money on military spending. And that such spending should be devoted to peacekeeping in the region e.g. the Solomon Islands, Bougainville and East Timor (including through UN peacekeeping operations).]
