It’s been a while. You’ve changed. I’ve changed.
It’s not you. It’s me.
Whatever your breakup slogan, I’m switching from this old thing to the beautiful new Squarespace site! Check it out, here.
Seeya, WordPress. It’s been fun. I’ll be back…
I was asked by the Sydney Morning Herald to write a piece on why we need laptops in the classrooms, in response to the news that the prestigious Sydney Grammar School has banned all laptops in classrooms. I think that’s a bit ludicrous. Many on Facebook didn’t! Let me know what you think.
Here’s the article.
I’m sitting at the departures gate of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, on what would have to be one of the most uncomfortable couches I’ve ever sat on. I’ve just connected to the free WiFi and now have to sit for 5 hours as we wait for our connecting flight.
Sitting at the airport waiting and dreaming. (Do you like my socks?)
But all this waiting has got me thinking (it’s not like I’m busy or anything!). Thinking about the future and my dreams.
Whenever I’m in an international airport or another country, I get such a buzz, it’s very exciting. I sometimes dream I’m a foreign correspondent flying somewhere big, or scary, or at least very different, reporting on a major event, or a small one that no one knows about, and will learn something by the time we leave. I love immersing myself in another, totally different culture.
And hope to, one day, in whatever form, go over to another country and report on what is happening, for real.
If you’re reading this still (just under a year since my last post – eek!), then thank you very much. A lot has happened since my last post. Chances are, you’ve heard about a few of these exciting changes if you’ve been following me on Twitter and Facebook (and thank you for doing that, too).

After a year in the position of 101st Mayor of Randwick, ALP Councillor Tony Bowen last Tuesday stood down, along with deputy mayor Noel D’Souza. They both made way for Liberal councillor Scott Nash, and Independent Anthony Andrews.
Ex-PM Julia Gillard had a rough start in life battling bronchopneumonia in Britain. She grew up in Adelaide, her father ‘died of shame’ and she went on to become the first female PM of Australia. Now, a look at her dreams, challenges, successes and failures, and a look back on the career that was.
Oh, Nine News.
They showed this unfortunate mistake in their news yesterday. Continue reading
This was an Independent Research Project I completed for my English class about life during World War One in Australia. I have modelled it off an average Sunday Night report.
For the main part of the report, I spoke to 91 year old Joan Henry. She lived in Australia during the Second World War, while here husband for 67-years Jim went to fight and was a Prisoner of War in Germany. While it’s not the same war, I spoke to her about what it was like at home – the emotional and social differences, and that remains the same.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I appreciate the time you’re spending looking around my unkept blog.
A little bit about me: I’m a fifteen year old teenager, interested in news from home and around the World. I’m passionate about digital journalism, breaking news, broadcast news and social media.
Currently, I work with online news website, The Global Panorama as an Oceania Correspondent and Social Media Manager. I previously held the position of Oceania Editor for about nine months.
As mentioned above, I’m very interested in how news and journalism is changing, and how the internet and social media drive that change. I tweet breaking news, media, world news and my general thoughts on my Twitter page, @anthonysegaert7.
Further, I manage The Global Panorama’s Twitter accounts, including the primary world news account (@TGlobalPanorama) and regularly post breaking news alerts from @TGPBreaking.
Aside from news and media, I’m interesting in education, public speaking and debating and technology.
I dream of working at a TV Network in Australia or around the world, bringing people the news that matters as it happens.
