I recently stumbled upon this great photo of the suburb where I grew up, which is called Figtree. It was named after the gigantic fig tree that once stood at one of its main junctions. In this photo from 1937, you can see it on the right-hand side of the frame.

Here it is up close! Itโ€™s a real shame that it isnโ€™t around today, due to disease and damage.

In my work, I have the pleasure of using ad campaign managers for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. They all have horrible user interfaces that are slow, ever-changing and incapable of showing any kind of helpful feedback about what is uploading, progressing or launching. Rubbish.

After much preparation and communicating with supervisors, I finally get to start my part-time PhD. It will take ages but Iโ€™m excited that itโ€™s finally happening. See how I feel in a few years! ๐Ÿ˜œ ๐Ÿ“

I love this sculpture at the University of Wollongong Library. Yay books! ๐Ÿ“š

ABC RN recently shared a fantastic new episode of its podcast The Philosopher’s Zone, called โ€˜Why the Humanities?โ€™. You should definitely listen to it; the three guest speakers do a great job of showing the value of the humanities in a world that is driven by measurability. ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ
