Transcendent ordeal of an outback pilgrim

Last edited 7th March 2014

Robyn Davidson's trek in 1978, 2700km overland from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean, is the stuff of legend. In the new film adapted from her memoir, Tracks, Robyn (Wasikowska) appears as an enigma, the motivations behind her odyssey oblique at best. Yet it is hard to miss her resentment towards friends who add noise to her final preparations, and towards the National Geographic photographer Rick (Driver) who intrudes intermittently on her trek in return for sponsorship from the magazine. Solitude, clearly, is largely the point.

Last edited 9th February 2014

Many organizations today find themselves struggling with the management piece of social networking. It’s very common to see additional accounts being created for a product, department, location, etc. It’s typical in our parishes that every ministry wants exposure. Some parishes have probably already experienced some parish ministries wanting their own Facebook Page, Twitter profile, or maybe their own website. Some have probably had them just “pop up” without anyone even asking.

Kids Don’t Know Tech and Why Education Is Important

Last edited 27th January 2014

It’s a common thought that “kids know tech”. We have taken this attitude and philosophy that young age equals tech knowledge including how to effectively and strategically use technology.
