GDAY WORLD! #91 – Hugo Kelly

On today’s show I chat with Hugo Kelly, Aussie political and business journalist, who recently left Aussie site Crikey amidst some very public sturm-und-drang. Not many people in this country can genuinely claim experience in both OLD and NEW media, but Hugo is one of those. We talk about his experiences in both new media and old media, his thoughts about the future of both, Jeff Kennett and Jeffed.com, Crikey, and some of my crazy and naive political ideas.
You can read more about Hugo here, here (in his own Wikipedia article no less), here and here. For the record, I found him to be a top bloke, smart, articulate, and passionate, about politics, about the media, and about his Mum. Nothing wrong with any of that.

    We need your help folks!
    I asked one of my hosts, Van from the Geeks Of Hazzard, who is a graphic designer by day, to knock me up a flyer promoting TPN.We’re going to be promoting this across all of the TPN blogs in the hope that some of our listeners might print them out at work or at home and leave them lying around… in the office lunch room, at their local cafe, sporting venue, star trek convention, whatever.
    Whaddya think?
    Here’s the flyer.

    And we’ll run a comp. Each month, I’ll give away a TPN t-shirt to the person who sends me the best photo of the TPN flyer in a craaazy place.
