Ok, on my two monitors I’ve got two Skypechats, Outlook, Twitter and Facebook open. Add to that quick access to my core client’s email exchange, a landline and mobile phone.
Communication access is NOT the problem.
Interesting how a single verb can build up momentum. The term of the day is “mobilise” or if you’re an American “mobilize”. Barack Obama’s ability to mobilise new voters into polling booths in the US Presidential election has been impressive. But now I hear Helen Clark is quoted as saying voter “…mobilisation really is the key issue now.”
I wonder how Vodafone feel about politicians pinching their call plan vernacular…
I saw this display ad this morning for the PPTA and it bothered me a little. Using black and white imagery and caps creates a loud bleak tone that carves negative sentiments before I’ve even read the copy (which is also a cynical pun).
Why do the PPTA do this? I know numerous teachers and they don’t speak like this. In fact, they’re the polar opposite.
Ever since I worked on TeachNZ (a good 10 years ago now) I’ve wondered whether our teachers’ unions have done more to drive potential teachers away from their profession due to their consistently negative communication practices.
It’s got to the point now where I think their messages simply fall on deaf ears.
