The ABC was so quiet yesterday I had to manually check their news page to see if the RSS feeds had broken.
But no, it seems the only Canberra news yesterday was a rescue in the Blue Mountains. (Of a Canberran mind you, which is nice)
It’s true, I’m very jealous of the ABC web people with their salaries and career paths, and annual holidays, and nice little radio chats about the latest social media doohickey they’ve been playing with as a substitute for real work, to say nothing of their ability to drop in with massive resources on other industries at whim, and their ability to advertise on tax-payer funded media which brooks no other promotions.
And yes, I have applied for these roles several times without even an acknowledgment of the application.
It’s also true that my perspective might be skewed by being hard at work at 5am this morning while the ABC website approaches 24 hours without an update.
But really I want to say thank you ABC webmasters, for making me feel better about myself.
