Suitables

It is not often that I think of Telstra BigPond as “cool”. It is a reliable ISP. I use it for email and blogging. Today, BigPond had an advertising campaign in front of QVB (Queen Victoria Building, Sydney), which not only looked cool but in fact attracted quite a lot of notice. The promotion is called Suitables

St. Andrews Cathedral monitors

 on 

I have entered St. Andrews cathedral recently and stood there very bewildered for a long while. There were LCD monitors installed on the cathedral columns. It felt so wrong. I know its 21st century and technology is everywhere but somehow these plastic LCD monitors installed on the sandstone columns looked ugly and out of place.

Sydney and Australia in general does not have a lot of old buildings. This is after all a very young country. So, scaring the very few buildings that are of historical and cultural significance with perhaps useful but otherwise ugly modern items, seems, well for a better word sacrilegious.
