Wow… @NTKF and I just went to the cinema to see Knives Out. That was a lot of fun and genuinely unpredictable. 📽
I feel proud and most amused that I somehow managed to get @NTKF mentioned on Accidental Tech Podcast. Natasha is extremely patient in listening to all of my constant tech chat at home; now she’s actually been dragged into it. 😂🎙👨🏽💻
After hearing that others do it, I thought that it would be interesting to try the mouse+trackpad lifestyle for a bit with my Mac. I love the feeling and clickiness of mice but also enjoy 360-degree swiping and scrolling of trackpads. Let’s see how this nerdy experiment goes…
I decided to repurpose the lower shelf of our entertainment unit; now I’m loving the look of our book nook.
On the latest episode of Lounge Ruminator, titled Interference, I reflect on my own use of online accounts, covering the rubbish networks that I’ve left behind and how I aim for more meaningful online interaction today. 🎙
Anyone have some spare Australian cash lying around?
Congratulations to @NTKF on her first-ever dance concert as a tap dancer at the Arcadian’s Theatre! Awesome show 😍😍😍
During a quick trip to Target with @NTKF yesterday, I couldn’t stop myself from buying this little Star Wars pin for my camera bag. Also, I still need to buy and add more, so this is a nerdy work in progress…
My beloved city of Wollongong!
A cheeky cockatoo came to visit this morning while we fed the guinea pigs and was rewarded for its cuteness with a Pink Lady apple. 🍎❤️
It’s 33 degrees Celsius today but still lovely to spend lunchtime in the shade. There’s a severe fire warning, however at least it’s not as bad as the recent catastrophic rating that we had in New South Wales. It should be an interesting summer… ☀️🔥
On this day five years ago, I camouflaged perfectly with a chair.
This latest episode of my Lounge Ruminator podcast, Immediate Recognition, is the result of a subtle nudge from fellow Micro.blog user @canion, who kindly responded to a post that I made yesterday about a particular movie soundtrack. I thank him for his encouragement! 🎙
Our neighbours upstairs are very loud and seem to have very poor dexterity, as they drop things constantly. Finally, they’re doing something noisy that I can enjoy: watching The Matrix. It was so loud that I stood in our lounge room describing what was happening on their screen.
There’s no end to the list of things that I can nitpick when out the shops! Read the latest grammatical rant in Rumination 60: CAPITALISEm on Lounge Ruminator.
These little friends provide a nice, squeaky ambiance while I read in the lounge room.
There are stereotypes for elderly drivers and then there’s this… Rumination 59: They See Me Rollin’ on Lounge Ruminator.
A lovely day for the Makers’ Market at the University of Wollongong’s Innovation Campus ☀️
PhD Journal Entry 6: Escape on Lounge Ruminator
It starts to rain outside my office.
A colleague asks, ‘Is it raining?’.
Another colleague replies, ‘Wow’.

Episode 3 of my Lounge Ruminator podcast, It’s the Principle of the Thing, is now available. In it I discuss the importance of transparent and honest design, citing the work of Scolari, Mumford and Rams in their respective fields. 🎙
During a recent commute, I thought about how the devices that we use today are already augmenting and altering our sense of reality. Read more in Rumination 58: Everyday AR on Lounge Ruminator.
Coldplay’s latest album, Everyday Life is easily the most musically interesting album since Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends in 2008. On first listen today, I had no idea where it was going—totally unpredictable.
