2012 Running Calendar

•June 28, 2010 • Leave a Comment

My first blog update for many many months, I thought I’d do it about Running, which is my second non-family addiction I have (the first being digital marketing, obviously).

Here is my 2012 running calendar which I’ve decided upon today:

4 February Sydney NSW

18 March Port Macquarie NSW

14 April Canberra ACT

22 April Sydney NSW

13 May Bunbury WA

20 May Sydney NSW

1 July Gold Coast QLD

July 15 Melbourne VIc

July 28 Alice Springs NT

August 12, Sydney NSW

August 19 Adelaide SA

September 16 Sydney NSW

In preparation, over the Christmas / NYE break I plan too:

– Run the 7 bridge Sydney course (22Km) + swim 500m in each pool I run past (North Sydney, Lane Cove, Drummoyne)

– Beat my BayRun best time of 00:36:36 and get under 35min

– Drink shite loads of wine, beer, champaign and Long Island Ice tea’s in recovery mode.

All I want for Christmas

Visual Jazz launches new website and “VJ Brew” blog

•December 4, 2009 • Leave a Comment

My agency that I run the Sydney operations for, Visual Jazz, has launched a new website and new blog (“VJ Brew”).

The website is clean and uncluttered, and has our avatars running around the screen which you can pick up and throw.  My highest throw is 2124m high using our Creative Director Gavin Heron….

The blog is called “VJ Brew” because we love our beer (especially one particular brand) and it also represents a collective platform of content from all areas within our 90+ strong people, mixed together to brew up opinionated commentary about the industry which we live and love: digital.

Check’em out here:

Now, that’s a real shame:


Summer cricket online: Johnnie Walker on SMH

•November 26, 2009 • Leave a Comment

I’ve been a fan for many of the past years of the Johnnie Walkers live score updates on the www.smh.com.au (or the age.com.au and others) websites for all the Australian Test Match cricket games.

You know summer is really here and the cricket season is in full swing (*bliss*) when this feature starts appearing.  I especially enjoyed the download widget last year.

But this year as I tune in to hear Australia adequately (not brilliantly though) squeeze the life out of the West Indies bowlers on ABC Grandstand, I’ve noticed a massive leap-improvement of the Johnnie Walker offering.

This new enhancement has a lot of new information and live features at a touch of a button.

Pie charts, batting statistics, umpire statistics, newsworthy news flashes (FYI Hussey just past 17 Test 50’s) and much more all wrapped up in a new interface design.

Much less Johnnie Walker branding, but he’s still there walking….

The ONLY thing they now need to do is take the whole thing off and away from SMH/TheAge and put it onto NineMSN and get the rights to stream live video content through this branded application….or, do a deal with ABC Grandstand to stream their radio coverage….

It’d put a bit of a dent in productivity, but I’ve seen recent statistics that say workers in Australia do multi-millions of dollars of extra work for free for corporate Australia these days, so, you know, a bit of balance is called for!

I love it, and if you like cricket you’ll be a fan soon too.
