Language Loewied

No prizes for identifying the Australian author and journalist who wrote this:
I was recently spoke in Sydney at the University of New South Wales at the conference of the Australian Law Students’ Association on the issues of privacy and censorship in Australia and globally. Here’s extracts from that event (though my comments here are very brief and rest assured I said many other things, including citizens treating web companies such as Google with necessary caution, as their influence in the corners of the globe often involves complicity with repressive regimes).
Little wonder then that this wordsmith's services are in high demand.

I'll bet there were a few raised eyebrows and amused knowing looks exchanged in that audience.

Wonder if he was paid for that outing.

Honestly the guy is such a tool he could well have been the stand up comic.

Ignore Damienne. He always defends his friends. His loyalty is to be admired, if not his judgement.

I don't defend anyone. I just laugh at Dan and Beck's obsessiveness. That you lot don't see anything a little odd about it says plenty.

Nice of you to visit. I'm guessing you're bored and pining for Jezza's return?

You really don't get it.

JF and I do this as a hobby in our spare time. Blogging is hard work. Whereas the two idiots you mentioned, are a never-ending source of very easy material.

It's not an obsession. Simply convenience.

Apropos Loewenstein, it is instructive to note that despite all the examples of his incompetence, he is still considered good enough for 'our ABC'. I'd be more worried about their obsession, than inventing one you believe JF or I to have.

Of course you're free to leave, yet here you are instead slagging us off. Who's really obsessed eh?

I'm sure Damian appreciates the effort it takes to maintain a blog. eg I'm sure he's a PP regular and can see Dave struggling on his own with Jeremy away.

In the last 5 days:-

Open Thread, Open Thread, Open Thread, Cut and paste of another blog post with zero additional commentary.

Jeremy's away, or simply off, like the Vicar's Egg.

Correction, Day 6

Open Thread, Open Thread, Open Thread, Cut and Paste, Open Thread.

Boy, and some lefties think picking on Loewy and Jezza is sad and lazy blogging!
