Hi I’m Anthony and I’m a huge nerd with Anthony Agius

About the talk

Come hear about Anthony’s very interesting career. Including…

  • How he created and sold the biggest Apple Mac website, outside the US
  • Why he owned one of the first iPads in Australia
  • Started one of the first and most popular podcasts in Australia
  • How he “earned” more than 1 million Qantas points by lifting his finger 10,448 times.

Anthony will join us via video from Melbourne, Australia

About Anthony

Anthony is a journalist, electric vehicle advocate, and North Melbourne supporter. He runs The Sizzle, a daily digest of good deals and tech news.

He started MacTalk (RIP), One More Thing and Reckoner. He’s contributed to Delimiter, SMH/The Age, Macworld Australia, PC & Tech Authority, Australian Personal Computer and Media Connect/ITJourno. Reckoner won the 2014 Optus IT Journalism award for best independent media. When he isn’t scouring the web for tech news, he’s driving an electric car or writing about them over at Drive Zero.

You may also remember him as the guy who went to New York to buy some iPads, or who set up a cryptocurrency mining farm in a shed, but most likely, heard that he scored a bunch of frequent flyer points off a bank.

About LAST Anywhere Talks

LAST stands for Lean, Agile and Systems Thinking. It was born out of meetup groups and then a conference, started in Melbourne AU in 2012. Since then, it grew to also be held in Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide. 1st Conference (Organisational Agility) and Spark the Change Melbourne (Meaning and Purpose at work and in society) are related conferences.

LAST Anywhere talks and workshops draw subject matter from the full range of topics covered by LAST, 1st and Spark the Change. Delivered online, they aim to provide non-formal learning and valuable interactions, and extend on the value provided by physical events.

All you need is a good internet connection, a webcam, headphones, and a microphone. Also, you will need the focus to be present and make the most of the session.
