Funny how memory works. The radio tells me that 17 years ago, we were glued to the telly watching what happened in the US. I don’t remember that. However, I remember doing that on September 12, 2001.
I’m thinking of running a piece on being Asian in New Zealand for one of our publications and the perfect interviewee to offer a counterpoint would be @email@example.com. Love this piece.

Google My Business: worth doing, even if you hate Google? The company comes up in a search anyway, so maybe I should take control of the listing. What I would be providing is linking the business to me personally, thereby providing the bastards with more about me.
We asked the Hush Puppies shop assistant at Queensgate where the company was from. She said, 'South America.' I had no idea that’s where Rockport, Massachusetts really was, but hey, I don’t work for Hush Puppies, so what do I know?
The #FreeviewNZ website says NCTV-Chinese is Auckland-only. I can get the signal in Wellington, if I lie and have the TV search for channels as though we were in Europe. So how does this work? Is the signal actually nationwide but by some quirk it’s blocked here?
Who do I know among my circles that works for Amazon? Being given the run-around for four years, being told stuff that I think is BS. The rep dealing with me is great but I reckon he’s being spun a lot of lies to get me off their backs.

This is a recent text message someone provided to me.
You receive a message from "Apple" to your recovery phone. In your native language, perfectly spelled. This looks legit, and you're happy because you might have a chance to get back your lost phone, right? https://t.co/R2R3sK5Jtc
Don’t really care about the new Twitter layout. Reminds me of one they had a few years ago, but now it’s for wider screens.
Well, at least there is a new Twitter layout. After #Facebook chickened out with Timeline and made it conventional, innovation has been lacking there.
Another Friday, another #FollowFriday
