Young Australian blokes signing up for jihad with #IslamicState is not a new phenomenon. Scores of them have gone over to Iraq and Syria already, and some have died there.

Most of them have come from Sydney, as you'd expect. But it's just been revealed that one of them hails from #Perth. And he was an economics student. The fact that he would throw away a secure life in this pleasant city proves just how pervasive and powerful this toxic movement actually is. #WApol   #Auspol

Earlier in December the famed rapper Ghostface Killah was in Perth. There's a little eatery in a lane in the CBD named in honour of him. It's called Toastface Grillah.

Seizing a unique promotional opportunity, the shop hosted a daytime concert by Ghostface in the lane. It said a lot about the power of social media as well as the changing face of the city.

#BenElton was on the ABC political discussion show #QandA last night. It was interesting to watch how he desperately tried to demonize Aussie PM Tony Abbott, then suck up to prominent government minister Malcolm Turnbull. This revealed a lot about Elton's psychology in particular and left-wing tactics in general. #Auspol

10 Reasons Visual Content is More Important than Written Content

The team at +LEAP has put together this infographic that illustrates 10 reasons why visual content is more important than written content.

Visual Content social media friendly:
Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram...The internet is a visual place. The popularity of social media demonstrates that visual content has become the go-to when "sharing" is the objective. Killer visuals can also help drive users to your website, blog, CRM sign-ups, or more.

Our brains like images:
In our day-to-day, 93 percent of communication is non-verbal. Individuals process visuals 60x faster than text, and we remember only 1/5 of what we read.

Having a good quality #headshot was always extremely important for professional performers such as actors and singers. But it's also very useful for almost all professionals these days because of the rise of social media. 

With this in mind I spoke to a #Perth photographer who specializes in this kind of work.

If you walk down Barrack St in the #PerthCBD, make sure you keep an eye out for an elegant old facade above Bar 138. It's all that remains of the Railway Hotel.

The horrifying #Sydneysiege  is finally over. And it's worth looking at how people reacted on social media while it was going on.

Many of those who were appalled by the selfie frenzy that occurred in #MartinPlace  itself were congratulating themselves on retweeting the  #Illridewithyou  hashtag. 

But ironically the latter "movement" was hardly the opposite of the selfie frenzy. Actually, it was just more of the same.

ABC political discussion show #QandA  is heavily stacked to the Left. One of the ways they do this is to choose panellists from the performing arts. One of tonight's guests is actor James Cromwell, who is even more left-leaning than most of his peers, which is saying something. #Auspol

The Greens are forever coming up with crazy schemes. All pointless, of course. They're latest one is that we should all pee in the shower to save water. But as with all their campaigns, #GoWithTheFlow is more about controlling people than saving the planet. #Auspol http://www.matthaydenblog.com/2014/11/greens-gowiththeflow-campaign-reveals.html
