Welcome to The House of Faz

Well, this is sort of version four of my website/blog. The first two version were on the domain I used to own, daniel-farrell.com. That seems to have been taken over by one of those landing pages with random searches. That’s okay, given I don’t want it anymore.

Follow me on Twitter, and visit my political blog, Politicalisation.

No drugs or alcohol were consumed before writing this post, however it is 4am which may have contributed to this. So here we go – 4 life lessons we can learn from Tetris. Continue Reading »

An open letter to the Sensible Sentencing Trust

To the Sensible Sentencing Trust, it’s officers and members;

This morning, I was looking through the news as I do most mornings. I came across an opinion piece by Marcus Elliott on the New Zealand Herald website about your new website, Judge the Judges. Looking through both his comments and the website itself, I am entirely disgusted by the existence of such a inherent attack on our justice system. Continue Reading »

Your bio – probably just as important as your content

You get car insurance in case anything goes wrong. You should probably have some “social media insurance” too.

When it comes to personal social media, you see a lot of people with really non-existent bios. Facebook is (usually) not so bad, because most of what you say is shared only between people you know, but Twitter is a very public medium. Continue Reading »
