Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 11/12/96

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

The magic tongue of Ben Gerholt: a photo-essay

My colleague Ben Gerholt, the technical editor of APC, has many fine and outstanding qualities. One of his less fine and outstanding qualities is his ability to kiss every single person he ever sees at parties. You want proof? Well, here it is; documentary evidence of Ben's performance at the recent APC awards night.

Early in the evening, Ben displays an almost decorous approach as he greets Mari Kauppinen of IBM.

But by the time Ben moved on to Pam Carroll of Marketing Directions, he was going for the sideways face attack.

Not all of Ben's pashing partners are so willing. APC technical journalist Nathan Taylor would clearly prefer to be on a fishing boat somewhere.

And some Telstra staff displayed an extreme unwillingness to participate in Ben's tonsil hockey experiments.

Eventually, though, Ben was able to convince other APC staff members (notably renowned CD Boy Ari) to participate in a group snog with our new media projects manager, Matt Bateman. As you can see, he's really into it.

There were other pictures in this series, but I've supressed them in the interests of good taste.
