This is an article about the housing market in San Francisco and how prices have shot up with the emergence of thousands of rich people. A classic example of demand vs supply.

Australia is not known as the worlds cheapest country. In fact, just the opposite. Some people say it's because we're isolated down here, some say lack of competition, high wages or cost of shipping.

Reddit is a site which I heard about years ago and kept hearing about. "It's popular!", I kept hearing. The site itself looked like crap though, so I never got into it.

Years later I got bored and started reading more of it, and discovered a couple of 'subreddits' which I now read almost every day. One of these is 'Ask Reddit' and every so often it has classic threads which are informative and/or can keep one entertained for hours.

Japan Probe


Japan seems like a pretty unique place. This site probes it!

"We have created this site to act as a blog-based reservoir of information, entertainment, and news on the more interesting aspects of Japan. Some of the material we post will be of our own original creation, and some of it will be submitted by others or linked from other sites on the net."
