Sharing violation! SHARING VIOLATION!

For most of this weekend, I was sitting on a beach on a secluded tropical island. My mobile phone battery had run out; there was no internet; I was totally incommunicado, and it was wonderful.

I came back this afternoon, and was listening with one ear to the BBC World Service (88.9 FM, and an oasis in the midst of Singapore’s media monoculture). So all I heard was “Kevin Rudd… bookish… quiet… scandalstrip club…”

If only I’d stayed on the island.
