Note from Mick: Sorry for the delay in getting this show up guys and gals….trying to catch up on a back-log of shows without dumping to many podcasts on you all at once… 🙂

Call us…call us now…

Wanna leave us a message?

Add “gdayworld” to your Skype contacts and then call it. Our Skype Answering Machine will record your message…as long as it’s under 120 seconds of course…(and don’t go on some sort of stupid rant… unless the rant is telling us how much we rock, then you can keep calling again and again… )

If you’re message is clever or interesting, we may even play it on the show. The rest of the messages we will just laugh about in the privacy of our own homes.

This Feb 14, send your loved one a G’day World Valentine.

Valentine’s Day is only 4 weeks away and in 2005 there will be only one way for any true geek to send their loved one a Vanetine message. Forget cards, flowers or e-cards. They are soooooo 20th Century.


What’s a “G’DAY WORLD VALENTINE???” I hear you ask? Well here’s how it works.

  1. Record your message to your loved one using any voice recording device. Keep it under 60 seconds.
  2. Save it as an MP3.
  3. Email it to
  4. We will stitch all of the G’day World Valentines together and we will put this out as a special episode of G’day World on Feb 14.
  5. The BEST and MOST ORIGINAL G’day World Valentine will receive a special prize, all the way from Australia.
  6. Special points will be awarded for anyone who says “G’day” in their message, and bonus points for using the term “sheila” and “bloke”.

On the Pod with Om Malik

Another great “On the Pod” with a shaker and mover from the US…this time we interview Om Malik who is the Senior Writer with Business 2.0 and author of “Broadbandits: Inside the $750 billion telecom heist“.

Listen as we talk to Om about Arnold Schwarzenegger, cricket, his new book, Broadband, how the generation gap is closing on internet usage, the iPod, VOIP, blogs. content on demand, broadband in Australia and a whole heap of things.

Om is one of those journalists that just “gets it”, so this is another “On the Pod” episode you shouldn’t miss…
