Now that Steve Jobs has died some of his thoughts are being released through his biographer:

The Apple chief also criticised America’s uncompetitive education system, which he said was “crippled by union work rules.” He said Mr Obama should have schools open until 6pm, 11 months a year.

This sis something the government should look at. It would save millions in in childcare costs for parents, and teachers are paid a salary anyway so there is no extra cost in extending the hours of school.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
