Extensive interview with Rupert Murdoch

From Sky News Australia, touches upon a lot of stuff from the Internet and the media to the global economy and its relation to the US and Australian immigration politics.

Regarding Murdoch’s views on Internet news: I’m the first to admit that my content consumption habits probably don’t reflect those of the general public. I don’t have any new ideas on how to support newspaper either. But I wouldn’t go back and manually read the New York Times Sunday mag. and be ready to pay small sums for it for it, I wouldn’t even know of it, if it wasn’t for content aggregators… Whether the content is free or not beyond the first paragraph, entirely avoiding to be indexed by Google doesn’t seem like a very good idea.

The Man is known for his fondness of giving consumers “choice.” So I simply don’t see the harm in readers or viewers coming in to content outlets from aggregators. I certainly have developed a sense of what I like, using aggregators or filters hasn’t affected my “loyalty” or trust towards content producers in any way other than me not necessarily skimming through all of a single publication in one sitting.

Axel Peemöller Melbourne Eureka Tower carpark perspective weirdness

“In Melbourne I [German designer Axel Peemöller] developed a way-finding-system for the Eureka Tower Carpark while working for Emery Studio. The distored letters on the wall can be read perfectly when standing at the right position. This project won several international design awards.”
