What is wookah?
A newly spawned search engine that makes search easy for you and me.

How does wookah work?
Simple. Wookah is a vertical search engine which lets you search keywords over a variety of sites all at once and all in the one window.

Try this out...go to, select 'Jobs' from the categories at the top of the window, now pretend that you are a zoo keeper and you live in for 'zoo keeper' sydney and then wookah does the rest - it uses your search keywords to search all of the sites in the 'Jobs' category, and now all you have to do is jump from 1 site to another and it's all there, and then once you've found your dream zoo keeper job you can don your khaki's and safari!

What else makes wookah one of the best things since sliced bread?
Well well well, is owned by the cleverly named and cleverly ran Internet Property Development Group who have reported 70% growth for the past 3 years! CEO Ari Klinger has been an Australian online entrepeneur to watch and will continue to be, I shake the hand of any Australian that is young, innovative and collaborative and who is pushing the online industry for Australia and creating opportunities for comparatively intelligent people that don't live in Silicon Valley!

So what can we all do for
Try it.
See it's potential.
Become addicted.
Spread the Wookah word.

Hotel Fox

Easily the most exciting hotel in the world, Hotel Fox brings together "61 artists, 21 rooms and 1000 ideas". With all the post mod-cons and cutting edge design you would expect from a Copenhagen hotel, there is little more that needs to be said.
So what is left to say? And what sets this apart from all the other hotels?
Individually decorated rooms designed by some of the most quirky and obscure graphic artists, interior designers and artists!

A Convenient Lie

I just got back to the big smoke from hugging some trees up in the north coast and thought I might impose on your daily routine with some easy and obvious ways to reduce carbon emissions:

- Turn off appliances at the wall socket. Turns out this makes a huge saving, especially with ridiculously large plasma screens.
- Plant a tree for carbon sequesting.
- Use public transport. Everybody loves Cityrail.
- Use blackle instead of google. Blackle is not only more race friendly, being the black version of google, it claims to potentially save 750 megawatt-hours per year just by displaying search results on a black background.
- Convert your car to gas.

Simple, and now next time you get into a heated debate with Al Gore you can tell him you are making a difference.

And what if it's all just scientific codswallop? Well, if Prince Charles is making a point of reducing his carbon footprint then who can refuse? Not Camilla, not me and not YOU!
