Just to add to the list of cool people I know and all the cool things they do, young Ryan has just been voted editor of Craccum, the Auckland University student magazine.
It was a landslide with the other two contenders being crushed by a mountain of votes. It possibly helped that Ryan put up posters of himself with his shirt off being all hot n stuff, but as it happens, he has this ability to seek out people with talent and bring them together, which is a very useful skill for a magazine editor.
He also is a keen editor and skilled apostropher wrangler, another skill that is good in the magazine editing world.
He’s also threatening to give me a column, which may or may not be titled Auckland Represent, but that’s a fair few months away.
One is awfully proud of him.
