"“No one,” Tony Abbott told a Melbourne gathering of Liberal Party faithful, “however smart, however well-educated, however experienced … is the suppository of all wisdom”. The Opposition Leader's travelling mentor, Philip Ruddock, squirmed and the Victorian MP Josh Frydenberg took a few seconds to register what his leader had said. Advertisement “Suppository?” Mr Frydenberg mouthed to a grey-haired man standing next to him. The man nodded gravely, perhaps recognising that Mr Abbott intended to say repository, a place where things are stored. As so often happens these days with political gaffes, within 30 minutes the hashtag #suppository was trending on Twitter, accompanied by photo-shopped images of Mr Abbott with suppository-inspired captions (“know your enema”, “squeezing out a policy”, etc)."

Instagram's reach continues to expand as public photos and videos now come with their own embed codes. (A bit like Vine!)

"A website that allowed users to share subtitles has been taken offline after the Swedish police raided two properties used by the service. Undertexter had provided fan-made translations of film and TV show dialogue, which could be merged with video files to provide on-screen text. A spokesman for the police told the BBC they had acted after investigating a complaint by copyright holders. Undertexter's managers insisted they had not broken the law. Critics have suggested the raid marked an escalation in Hollywood's efforts to protect its intellectual property."

Instagram gets video - a bit like Vine - but Instagram's video limit is 15 seconds, comes with filters, and a stabilisation feature on iOS devices. With Facebook gaining #hashtags and now video via Instagram, is there anything Twitter does that Facebook won't do ... a bit later?

"Instagram users have embraced the application's just-released video feature by uploading 5 million videos in the first 24 hours of the feature's availability, a company representative told CNET. Thursday, Facebook-owned Instagram added video to its iOS and Android applications, enabling users to capture moments in a new way by shooting and sharing up to 15 seconds of video, with effects-filters available and footage stabilized during the uploading process. The feature, which bears a resemblance to Twitter's Vine application, seems to be an early hit with Instagram's 130 million active users, who, in the first eight hours, uploaded so many videos that it would take a year to watch them all."

An official tool launch by Foursquare, the Time Machine creates an interactive animation driven by a user's check-in history on the service. It's beautifully designed, but also serves as a great reminder about the breadth of ways a locative metadata can be anaylsed and understood at scale.

"The season finale of Game of Thrones has set a new BitTorrent record with more than 170,000 people sharing an episode simultaneously. In just one day more than a million people have downloaded a copy of the show... As previously revealed, Game of Thrones downloaders come from all over the world. Most downloaders come from Australia, followed by the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Australia stands out in this list as it also has the smallest population, and this hasn’t gone unnoticed. The Ambassador of the United States of America to Australia recently complained about this “plain theft” by Australians. However, since the local cable provider has chosen to decrease instead of increase availability next year, things are not going to change anytime soon. In the U.S. the situation is not much better, and to a certain degree one could claim that HBO is to blame for Game of Thrones’ BitTorrent record. They want to keep access to the show “exclusive” ..."
