Extraordinary coincidence … or a case of great minds thinking alike?

The Sydney Morning Herald’s Radar section editor Joel Gibson told Crikey this morning that he’d never even heard of Australian Anthill magazine, which hit the newsstands two weeks before Radar came out with its “Aussiewood” cover in Wednesday’s SMH.
