    and the people using mobile devices and screen readers.. This is a accessibility case just waiting to happen!

  2. Hi Lauren,
    Often stories from the print version of the AFR end up online at the Fin’s ‘sister’ site for MIS magazine.

    I assume that’s so they can keep their print ‘exclusivity’ on stories in the print edition of the ARF while still putting the copy online. Their web strategy isn’t transparent to me at this time. 🙂

    Might not help with the particular story you mentioned, but it’s an interesting data point nonetheless

  3. Actually within 20 mins of my whinging, a TwitFriend put up a deobfuscator – I can put in any AFR URL now and get a copyable transcript 🙂
    … bless his little copyright thievin’ socks 🙂

  4. Don’t underestimate the Google Juice – it’s powerful stuff! Slightly off-topic but a good example; I recently got screwed on a warranty claim for $1,200 in car repairs because the particularly component was not specifically included in the contract (clearly not, because to explicitly list everything would be absurd). So I posted the rejection letter on flickr.

    Within 24 hours I was (and still am) the leading result on Google for a search of the warranty company’s name.

    But obviously we’d prefer to be directing the Google Juice for good – so don’t inhibit us! You can only benefit!
