Get Yourself “Toon’d” at

My old buddy from Microsoft Glenn Vassallo finally launched his cartoon production site 2nME yesterday! This is a service that allows you to get a cartoon drawn up of yourself, which you can use on your blog, in your Skype ID, … on your fake ID…. etc. All TOONs are completely hand drawn, by a professional artist, using a Wacom tablet. Check out the photo in the middle of the boxes on the front page. Look familiar? This should be a popular service. It’s only USD$29.

Let’s Talk About Industrial Relations

For gdayworld 173 (scheduled for Dec 8), I really want to talk about the new Industrial Relations laws in Australia. I’d love to talk to young people who are working under them and to employers. If you know of anyone who fits one of those descriptions and might be interested in chatting with me, please let me know! And you can join in the show by posting your details HERE.

DIGG doubles my numbers

As some of you may have noticed, and as I mentioned on the show today, we had some slight “issues” with the TPN servers in the last 24 hours, mostly because this post I did last night got hit by DIGG. We got slammed. I did the same traffic to G’Day World in one 24 hour period that I normally get in a month. And we aren’t currently geared up for that kind of attention. So congrats to Dave Gray for creating a real story! If you guys aren’t already listening to Dave’s GlobalGeek podcast, you should be.

I believe this is called ‘The Digg Effect”.

G’DAY WORLD 171 – On Marijuana, Living Without Advertising, and Plausible Deniability

A loooooong show today, almost 90 minutes, with three guest co-hosts, a clip from another TPN show, a music clip from PUBLIC ENEMY… it’s our first YEAR THREE show and so I indulged. Mea Culpa.

My guest co-hosts today include:

  • Shane Williamson (who didn’t started late and didn’t stay long because his Optus Cable sucks ass)
    Dave Gray from TPN’s GlobalGeek podcast who crashed our servers last night
    and Scott Sherman from TPN’s #1 podcast “The Digital Photography Show
  • topics:

    Why Marijuana Is Illegal

    Getting DUGG

    Political survival and plausible deniability are now the paramount objectives of public administration.

    An 11-year-old in Hillsborough County, Fla., who has lost his hair during chemotherapy treatments for Leukemia is selling advertising space on his head to raise money for the Bone Marrow Registry, according to Local 6 News. (LINK)

    If you want to be part of a future episode of G’Day World, you can find the schedule on our Google Calendar.

    Of course you can also send me a voicemail HERE and we’ll play it and make fun of you for being too lame to actually come on the show.

    Help Me Test Skypecasting

    With the new open G’Day World format, I want to test out some of these systems that allow hugh multi-party VOIP calls. Skype now have something called “Skypecasts” which I’m going to try out on G’Day World 172 next Monday. If you’re around at 10am AEST, why not help me test it out!
