The Week

Almost there… a busy, although quite monotonous week at work. Apparently when you’re at a computer for prolonged periods, you’re meant to refocus your eyes every thirty minutes or so to reduce eyestrain. It’s quite easy to do at work when you’ve got a window seat. For some reason, although the view is nothing special, I don’t get sick of looking outside – sort of like staring out of an airplane window. There’s something cool about seeing the storm clouds and rain roll in across the city too. But enough of my idiosyncracies.

Received news today that I got selected as a social justice Intern at the Baker & McKenzie Cyberspace Law and Policy Centre for second session of next year! “The principal goal of the Program is to provide students with training and practical experience in research, writing and advocacy on aspects of policy and practice relating to social justice (especially the reduction of inequity and exploitation).” Should be a terrific experience!

Next Tuesday evening I’m going to hear Sir Richard Branson talk at UNSW. Definitely will be interesting to hear what he has to say.

I can recommend his autobiography if you haven’t actually already read it. It gives a really good insight, be it subjective of course, in his constant drive for setting himself goals and achieving them which has been the basis for his Virgin Empire.

I have actually tried to get an interview with him for a New Venture-class during an exchange program in Canada, but after weeks and weeks of faxing, writing and phoning his office it was turned down at the last minute. I did, however, got to do an interview with Will Whitehorn, the CEO of Virgin Atlantic and his personal spokesperson for over 20 years, which was quite exciting as well. Read it here:
