Slow week at Delimiter


hi everyone,

hope you’re well!

This is just a quick message to let you know that Delimiter will be posting a slightly reduced amount of stories this week — perhaps about half as much as usual, or a third. This is because I’ll personally only be working half days, as a means of taking a bit of a break from the daily treadmill and recharging, as well as strategising for the year ahead. Think of it as an annual fast to help clear the system ;)

We’ll still have two or three fresh articles every day, but we won’t be as up-to-the-minute as we usually are. Of course, there are plenty of other media outlets out there, and I’m confident that readers, those seeking coverage and even our great modern democracy will all be able to survive a bit a of a ‘go slow’ week from us ;) We’ll resume full service on Monday next week.

One final note: As I’ll be doing a bit of strategising this week, please let me know in the comments below what you would like to see more of from us this year, or what we could do better, and I’ll try and incorporate it into the plan. We’ve learnt a lot over the past year about what works and what doesn’t work.

If I could sum it up, I would say that we believe that most people seem to want more insightful, contextual, referenced articles. We’ve had a great response to our NBN ‘fact-checking’ articles over the past few weeks, and more of those will definitely be arriving. Both sides of politics, as well as the big corporate interests, could do with some more accuracy in relation to their statements. In 2012, context and analysis is likely to be king in Australian journalism — going beyond breaking news to deliver insight.

Anyway, in the meantime, I hope you enjoy this satirical image on Coalition NBN policy as much I did, when I saw it on Twitter, earlier today. Good work, Jamie :)

  1. More bias +

    …. more NBN, more on who’s moving stuff to Cloud, less marketing articles from Cisco, HP, Dell, IBM, VMware, Citrix, Microsoft, Oracle….

  2. More bias. It’s the personal analysis that makes Delimiter better than the rest.
    I wouldn’t mind venturing more into international grounds. If there is something going on overseas that is highly likely to affect us, we might as well learn about it.

  3. More Fake News (clearly noted as such).

    Can’t wait until a politician skips their fact checking and quotes one of these articles.

  4. Renai, you do realise that is a fake? It’s pretty obvious they are Airport Base Stations and should be the earth side of the satilite systems. Also, they are stretching it a bit, they are 11Mbit. Does that means you need two wireless dongles per system to get 12Mbit? What if you have only one USB port?
    Well if they break down at least the Apple store is pretty good on replacement.

          • LOL, you”re right there. I guess I am picturing the wrong audience at times. I tend to think of some techy guys your having a bit of a light hearted conversation with down the pub, not guy who walks in with a chip on his shoulder and is looking for confrontation. I guess the audience here is both.

            This thread it was just replying in the manner of the article. The other, well the anti NBN side had been very quiet. Not into serious discussion at the moment. I am just back from the hostpital and sitting here with my nose broken and swollen. I will be glad in a few days once that eases up, it seems to have fixed the problem though. No pain across the left side of my face any more.

    • “Also, they are stretching it a bit, they are 11Mbit.”

      But Malcolm Turnbull knows full well that there is a 20% overhead on ethernet, so that the coalition’s Airport NBN solution will only deliver 8.8 Mbps. The coalition must therefore acknowledge that Apple Co. is an incompetent white elephant that will never deliver the government’s NBN policy and will waste taxpayers’ money.

      • I am sure he mean “up to” though. He loves his “up to” you can name any figure you like then. Up to a terabit dial modems.

  5. Tony actually thought this was a goer until he found out the cost to run the extension cords up there…
