**Sam Vincent** takes an objective look at both sides of the whale wars - and at what humans, especially Australians, have invested in saving whales. He also traces our historical involvement with the whaling industry, which preceded 'the sheep's back' as the primary driver of our postcolonial economy., **Sophie Cunningham** attended Portland's XOXO Festival around independent digital culture last weekend, and she's reported on it for us - and reflected on the way that so many of the burning issues of digital culture also resonate for her as a writer., Our third and final group of Hot Desk Fellows for 2014 begin their work at the Wheeler Centre today. As is customary, we've invited each of our six talented writers - Susie Anderson, Louis Bravos, Eli Glasman, André Dao, Emily Stewart and Claire Rosslyn Wilson - to share an introduction to the projects they'll be spending their time on. and In this week's Friday High Five, we check out a startup that's brewing meat, meet an artist whose work is both science and fiction, delve into the current creativity fetish and take in some arguments about contemporary journalism.
