Morganco International is excited to finally announce what we’ve been working on so hard for the last 10 or 15 minutes — our new venture The Pancake Fund.
We intend to invest in some of New Zealand’s premium griddle, pan, and grill-led growth businesses. Anticipating huge interest in our Initial Pancake Offering — we expect to raise over $50 for the fund OR MORE — we’ve already begun discussions with a broadly diversified group of hardcore early stage B2B, B2c, BRNCH, and MRNGNTEA providers.
The 30,000 foot view is that The Pancake Fund will provide the runway necessary to allow our partners to raise the bar in the early to mid day sector.
Elevator pitch: We’ll leverage the low-hanging fruit, business plan the playing field, and converge the back-end in order to seamlessly exploit all keywords for a convergent quick win.
Soup to nuts 24/7 is so last year, we’re all about being Top Of The Game from about 11am to about 1pm, one or two days a week.
Full disclosure in the interests of transparency: Our Directors’ fees are a heaping pile of hot buttered pancakes, a cup of coffee, and a glass of juice, or the full amount raised, whichever is the greater.
While at this stage we’re fully committed to the Pancake model, in event of market pushback we’re willing to pivot to a high-level Corned Beef Hashcake with Poached Eggs roadmap.
However we remain resolute in our commitment to the cup of coffee.
You should always take independent investment advice, but how can you lose with such a compelling revenue pipeline?
This installation is amazing.
Cossey’s Creek (January 11, 2013).
Some of you will recognise this as the old swimming hole, but last time I was there (when this photo was taken) it’d been occupied by so many eels that I almost went into orbit I jumped back out so quickly.
Lately I’ve watched a few episodes of a new TV series called Arrow — an adaptation of the Green Arrow comics that is very careful to avoid making any mention of comics.
It’s better than you might expect, but that isn’t really saying much.
There’s something about this scene that struck me as odd. The chap who was “just knocked out” doesn’t appear to be wearing any body armour, so far from just being knocked out, he has a life threatening injury in the form of a broken-off arrow head embedded deeply into his chest.
In any case, the unlikeable hero doesn’t have any qualms about his lie, and finishes off the night having a milkshake with his mum. No harm done, right?
The New Zealand Herald got a snazzy new redesign in their printed edition as well as their website (though some say it’s a shameless rip-off of the Guardian website), I think it all looks pretty good aside from one thing. The website the text is a bit small, and a bit cramped, so it’s not very nice to read. Not everyone feels this way, some people love it, but I don’t like it, and judging by twitter I’m certainly not alone.
I find it really hard to read articles on the new @nzherald design. It’s like the text is too compact, feels like an effort to read :-(

It’s a smart-looking redesign, but the body text is too small. Wonder if we’ll see a responsive version eventually.

I’m not clear on how the typography made it through testing without this being noticed, but apparently someone from the Herald has seen the response, and has promised that they’ll do something to solve it. But who knows when that will be?
I use the Herald site almost every day, and right now I find it hard to read.
So, I’ve solved the problem myself.
I did that by creating an extension for the Google Chrome web browser that tweaks the type in Herald articles, it increases the font size, and makes the line height a little taller. Small changes, but to me they make a big difference.
It’s called Readable Herald and it’s available right now, free of charge.
