I was going to write a business book – a career journal filled with clever learnings, sage advice and world-changing missions – but I was struggling, big time. By struggling, I mean I hated every word. I spent more than two years producing bursts of word count, then rereading and deleting them.

Then I met a famous person who said, ‘Don’t write a business book, my dear. Write the stories you want to leave for the people you love.’ And so I did. I didn’t set out to write a memoir, but that’s what was spilling out when I met that famous person on a sunny Tuesday in Melbourne in June 2017. I’d been at it for two years when she told me just to write my stories. And so I kept going. I wrote what I want my favourite people to read, stories that many have never heard. And while I have written it with my nearest and dearest in mind, this book is also for you.

Buckle up. Here comes my book: a big, colourful and, sometimes, downright awful word-vomit of love, fun and survival with a side order of WTF. Honestly, I can’t make up the stuff that happens to me.

After the first, each big-ass chapter is arranged by a theme based on a quality I admire in the people I’ve worked with, lived with, travelled with or battled alongside. I share with you the life-changing lessons I’ve learned from those remarkable people and their unspoken invitation to do life in a way that is richer than anything I knew before they crossed my path.

My deepest wish is that reading this book makes you want to do cool stuff, make plans, launch that business, pack your bags, shave your head, ride that horse, date that hottie, apply for that job, chuck that party – and, most of all, get your girls out, whatever that means for you.

Gamification by Design: Implementing Game Mechanics in Web and Mobile Apps

Gamification may be a new term, but the idea of using game-thinking and game mechanics to solve problems and engage audiences isn’t exactly new. The military has been using games and simulations for hundreds (if not thousands) of years, and the U.S. military has been a pioneer in the use of video games across branches. Three...

Class in Education: Knowledge, pedagogy, and subjectivity
Class in Education: Knowledge, pedagogy, and subjectivity

In contemporary pedagogy, "class" has become one nomadic sign among others: it has no referent but only contingent allusions to similarly traveling signs. Class, that is, no longer explains social conflicts and antagonisms rooted in social divisions of labor, but instead portrays a cultural carnival of lifestyles, consumptions, tastes,...
