Reference Number: DCDL-0000962

The cartoon shows a very studious-looking student at work in his bedroom which is festooned with typical student paraphernalia, including a photo of Che Guevara on the wall. His father tells him to leave off his medical studies and develop an Internet business. Refers to the recent high-profiling of Sam Morgan's 'Trade Me' which has just sold to Fairfax.
