Whilst driving home from basketball on Sunday night I experienced what so many people talk about when speaking about why they hate cops.
I am lucky enough to have never had any encounter with the police, and in 3 and a half years of driving, am still yet to even be breath tested.
Anyway, so I was stopped driving down the street, the lights have just turned red so naturally the car in front of me stops, behind me is a police car which decides it is going to use its power to simply put its lights on at that moment and go straight through the red light. When people tell stories about that happening I usually imagine the cop car leaving their lights on for a while so not to look that dodgy. This one turns the lights off as soon as they get to the other side of the traffic lights. My first thought was just a "yoooou dick", but then I realised he was just using the powers/skills granted to him that enables him to gain that advantage. As long as they don't break the law in doing so, I don't see a problem with trying to gain that advantage.
I believe blogging is also that fair (or unfair) advantage that more people should take advantage of. Now myself probably not so much, however Zac Martin and Julian Cole are/have used their blog to gain an advantage over the rest of the field in getting into the industry after university. Obviously Julian has had the greater impact so far with his new role in sydney with The Population, and he has already completed his degree, however as soon as Zac completes his degree, he will already be known within the industry, and will be that far ahead of just the average student it isn't funny.
In two years time I wonder if companies will be looking for that straight HD student, or if they would rather look for someone that understands where the future of marketing lies.
