How to talk Australians

A blowey on the wall style doco from one of India's most dinkum call centre training facilities

This has been doing the rounds over the past few days/weeks, so I thought I'd gather them all together in one easy-to-share post and then, of course, add it to my #AboutAustralia  series.

This is one of the funniest short-series I've ever seen. It ranks up there with "Mind your language" with it's blatant racism, but it's also humourous and well worth a look. One of the greatest things about being an Aussie is our ability to take the piss out of ourselves at every available opportunity. 

I sincerely hope that +How to Talk Australians do a Season 2.

Episode 1 - "G'Day Knackers" -

Episode 2 - "Grub" -

Episode 3 - "Rhyming Slang" -

Episode 4 - "Famous Australians" -

Episode 5 - "Nicknames - Hello Chopper" -

Episode 6 - "The Slackarse Country" -

The Future of Reading?

Want to experience the future of reading? Go to this link, and click the "click to spritz" icon at the top of the page:

Spritz is a new company that believes it has a better way to read. After trying it, I actually think they might be right - at least for certain types of text. 

For each word, the eye seeks a certain point within the word, which we call the “Optimal Recognition Point” or ORP. After your eyes find the ORP, your brain starts to process the meaning of the word that you’re viewing.
When reading, only around 20% of your time is spent processing content. The remaining 80% is spent physically moving your eyes from word to word and scanning for the next ORP. 

Spritz works by eliminating the need for that eye movement. For me, it really sped up the reading process. What's more, it's a very compact UI, perfect for mobile devices. 

Check it out and let me know what you think. I'm curious.
