What a busy week! And today was particularly important. Yours truly made a trip to that small city down south of Sydney, Wollongong, to receive my masters diploma in business. My goodness, things have really changed quite a bit in academic speeches. The university chancellor delivered the most boring of talks. It was more about advertising his institution than a rousing call for his students to conquer the world. He went on and on with irrelevant statistics. I suppose I should have expected it, after all, the ceremony began with a Power Point presentation. Graduation ceremonies have really changed.
Then came a guest speaker. I tell you dear readers, I think people should be forced to take out a license before they are allowed to quote Martin Luther King. Same old, same old message about having a dream.
And, of course, this weekend is the first year anniversay of this blog. Actually, it all began over at the MSN Spaces. Here is the July 2005 archive. That's a happy birthday to TCG!
I should, however, that you dear readers, and especially the regulars, have had a lot to do with this blog's success over the past 12 months. Many thanks also to fellow bloggers who link to this blog. As a consequence of these inbound links, TCG is ranked fifth by Technorati.
