@trib Thanks, Stephen. I’m very happy with the essay, and the intelligence of the commenters back. Plus being “Crikey essay” on this rocks.

@trib There’s some comments from ABC insiders starting to appear on my original blog post too. http://tinyurl.com/3dvkxs

@gnoll110 I assume ABC podcast/vodcast times online are storage/bandwidth cost limits. They should just Torrent them.

@trib Crikey offers 3-week free trial, too.

@trib My Crikey piece on ABC Playback at http://tinyurl.com/2bmlta but behind paywall… however…

@mpesce If we’re going to have a revolution, does it HAVE to be in French? That’s so… 18th Century!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

I’m getting some bites from other media outlets about my essay in Crikey today re ABC Playback. I think the pot has been stirred…

via Twitter Web Client

Back at the desk, working thru the backlog of to-do items…

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge @crispin_harris You are both right, of course. The whole point of Crikey is to get up people’s noses and other orifices.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

One day I’ll write something for Crikey which doesn’t offend *anyone*…

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce One of the scariest First Dog cartoons had Keith Windschuttle and Janet Albrechtson screwing on the ABC boardroom table…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Mind you, I probably just screwed my chances of ever being on the ABC Board. Calling their experiment a “backwards step”… tsk tsk!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce The one positive thing about ABC Playback is that it helped me learn more about your oral hygiene, Mark. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Today’s First Dog on the Moon cartoon is superb. Will this link to the image bypass Crikey’s paywall? http://tinyurl.com/2dqbte

Feeling slightly lazy after lunch, reading while having a coffee before phoning clients.

via Twitter Web Client

Crikey article done! Now that I’ll have annoyed the national broadcaster, who else can I piss off today?

via Twitter Web Client

Ta, folks, will add Yahoo! Live since it’s a brand name people will have heard of.

via Twitter Web Client

@zhasper Yeah I mean where people can uplink their own video.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jamezpolley

Dear Twitterverse, which vidoe streaming services should I mention as examples for a non-tech audience? Justin.tv? Ustream? Others?

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Ah yes, someone had mentioned @cybner before re CRM stuff. I shall poke her later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@velvetsarah Ah good I shall waste some time with that later. I am being PRODUCTIVE now. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to velvetsarah

@Nickhodge Who should I talk to about Microsoft Dynamics CRM for a small client (under 10 seats)?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge I was trying NOT to blog anything offensive today. Though apparently I’ve been read by simply EVERYONE at the ABC… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Client will be late for the 1030 meeting. Now have half an hour to kill.

via Twitter Web Client

@SilkCharm will you be getting naked at BarCampSydney? Or just wearing wings?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@SilkCharm I can only come on the Sunday, unless I cancel Saturday gym and gin’n’tonics. ;) But I’m sure I can do something interesting.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

There! I’ve registered for BarCampSydney. My life is ruined.

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… That triggers a thought: should I lead a discussion of ABC Playback at BarCampSydney? hat means I’d have to go, of course…

via Twitter Web Client

ABC response to my essay on ABC Playback http://tinyurl.com/2ve8nh and my response to that http://tinyurl.com/3cqdgp … good discussion!

via Twitter Web Client

Tuesday plan: Writing; 1030 client pops in to have laptop fixed. Desk for day’s remainder, but including a media interview re internet TV.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerging late, looking at all the comments which have appeared overnight.

via Twitter Web Client

Walk over! That was about 3 hours all up, Enmore to Strathfield and back. [stretches]

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Nah I won’t get lost. Beautiful night for a walk tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

Taking a late night walk to let the thoughts roll around in my head.

via Twitter Web Client

@Fifikins Good luck with the gender reassignment! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fifikins

@BZB @velvetsarah Sorry ladies, but part of my role in life seems to be about spreading disturbing imagery.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BZB

I just saw someone suggest that Bindi Irwin should pose for Playboy… [shudder]

via Twitter Web Client

@SilkCharm Scarily, according to Tweetstats you’re the 3rd on the list of people I @ to… @Nickhodge and @mpesce ahead of you.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@SnarkyPlatypus Is it possible to combine geocaching with alcoholism? Is it possible not to?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I think a red wine for me tonight, we’re out of gin. Though since I upset the ABC today maybe it should be chardonnay.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@velvetsarah LOL! Well, if you find something of interest, enjoy!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to velvetsarah

@SnarkyPlatypus Welcome to the reality outside the salt mines of Circular Quay!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@velvetsarah Hi new Twitterstalker(tm)! Another WAer… so many westerners following me!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to velvetsarah

@Nickhodge Actually I should see if I can generate the role of research assistant or the like, that could work any time zone.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@sirexkat LOL! No, the sub-adult muttered something about he’d heard it all before. Yet his computer WAS riddled trojans and other nasties.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sirexkathryn

@Nickhodge Sadly if he’s still at school then my need for business-hours assistance probably isn’t going to match.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Ah yes, one client asked me to give his 15yo son the “don’t download nasties from teh internetz” speech. I felt all grown up!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Akula Welcome new Twitterstalker(tm)! May you find something of value, offence or amusement in my world!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Akula

@Nickhodge Heh even Crikey called me an ubergeek again today… but you’re pretty knowledgeable yourself! Did you not do father-son geekery?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Well yes, when a chap offers his 16yo son for sale to a gay man, it’s always safer to think of the work context. And I did know.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Julian Burnside is a god on earth, and I’m so glad he’s part of Australia 2020.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Hmmm… but would I want to BUY your 16yo? Teenagers are a handful and in often clueless. Tho Germaine Greer seems to like ‘em…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Maybe I need an apprentice more than an office manager.

via Twitter Web Client

Invoicing is such fun… I really should hire an office manager to replace Virginia.

Overwhelmed by Audio Hijack Pro for OS X: just WAY too many powerful options for me to absorb at the end of the day!
