Emerges. 18C max predicted, rain easing. My kind of Monday, really. Let’s see if the Australia 2020 Summit has changed the world…

National Geographic feature on China. Some amazing photos scattered thru this. http://is.gd/7wp

“Glue sniffing isn’t all magic and sunshine.” http://is.gd/7wj Superbly kitsch 1970s anti-drugs propaganda filmstrip.

Reading about the CIA’s involvement in Tibet since the 1950s. http://is.gd/7wd

@crispin_harris No, you must be misteaken. I would never make a typing error.

I’m still not seeing updates from @Nickhodge but I will eat leek & pumpkin soup courtesy@ApostrophePongPong instead.

@zefrank Fascinated with your “Youngme / Nowme” photo project: childhood photos paired with current re-creations. http://is.gd/6H6

@cait Cheers! Sorry I haven’t written many decent pieces lately… ebb and flow. Full Moon tonight (in 78 mins!) may or may not help.

@misswired Out of gin here too, but somehow leek & pumpkin soup will be our substitute. good luck with the assignment!

@88Michael Hello to you too… I can’t think of any witty welcome right now, sorry.

@misswired Welcome to my Twitterverse, full of gin, geekery and sarcasm.

@PeterBlackQUT Even my positivism about Aust 2020 all but gone. Governance, 1500 person-hours to say republic, reform constitution etc? :(

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

My Twitterstream is still missing a lot of what is happening. It feels a little like brain damage, but less important.

@mpesce I was hoping maybe for Giuseppe Arcimboldo, the future of Australia made up of fruit and vegetables.

@mpesce Me? Be bitchy? There’s not a bitchy bone in my body… I am the ultimate picture of respect for authority. ;)

Snacking while pondering what tow rite about the Australia 2020 Summit.

@jedwhite I suspect my posts today are, um, misleading too. Then again, maybe not: alcohol, politics, geekery and sarcasm.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jedwhite

This coming week is Anzac Day on Friday so patterns all awry. Maybe something the week after?

via Twitter Web Client

@Alegrya @kcarruthers It shouldn’t be too hard to convince them, eh? I wonder which’d be the best day to pick…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus only 2.75 hours until The Sly Fox happy hours for today…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus Now we’re starting to see some progress! Long Island Iced Teas are a fine start.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@SnarkyPlatypus Gin doesn’t have lustre, it has depth of character… something you may not understand. [ducks]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Another key question: What is the point of Peter Garrett? apart from helping Nicola Roxon get things from the top shelf?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Welcome to a world beyond the experiences of yesterday. The world is a better place, apparently.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@IanKath Well certainly the Summit has forced me into pants-off mode so far. Someone hand me a cloth…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanKath

The ABC has just replaced my Australia 2020 Summit web feed with an ad for the “Orgasms Explained” DVD. What IS the message here?

via Twitter Web Client

@spinopsys Well, I was certainly intrigued with the fuckwittdness behind the idea that closing stairwells will stop the terrorists, somehow.

Australia 2020 Summit final plenary so far: Collected statements of the bleeding obvious. Still not heard anything that’s truly new.

via Twitter Web Client

@PeterBlackQUT I normally make fun of everything, yet find myself critical of the fun-making here. Maybe ‘cos it’s mostly so superficial.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@spinopsys Thanks. I do find that I write with most passion, with most strength, when it’s on issues such as human rights.

via Twitter Web Client

@spinopsys An even happier version of the PM on the floor: http://is.gd/7tZ It’s so natural, yet commentators want to make us laugh at him.

via Twitter Web Client

@leslien Thankfully the streaming is working just fine for me in Firefox on OS X.

My thoughts on a Bill of Rights from August 2007: “Let’s just write that down…” http://is.gd/7tX

Australia 2020 Summit closing plenary session webcast at http://is.gd/7tV or broadcast on ABC2 starting shortly. Be underwhelmed with me…

via Twitter Web Client

@PeterBlackQUT Certainly media coverage is underwhelming. Columnists trying to out-do each other in making fun of process and participants.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@spinopsys And like the cricket, it can run all weekend and still result in a draw? :)

via Twitter Web Client

@spinopsys I think I’ll pick up Australia 2020 Summit coverage from the final plenary at 1330 Sydney time… see every group’s final ideas.

via Twitter Web Client

@jedwhite I might stalk you for a while, since you seem to be saying interesting things. :)

Gnarly aircraft landing video of the week, from Honduras. Ignore lame YouTube comments: this is fine flying! http://is.gd/7tw

Once more, Homo sapiens demonstrates its superiority over other species through indiscriminate chemical warfare.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Yes, ants have colonised our printer, or the warm, dry space under it. 1000 to 1500 eggs migrated in so far. All dead now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@spinopsys Feral far-right commentators still in “denial” stage of coping with public moving on from Howard Neocon Coma era. Or anger?

via Twitter Web Client

@leslien ROFL! Oh those naughty, suspicious, bloggers… how dare they be suspicious of Australia 2020 Summit. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@trib I daresay would have been excellent… tho I admit politics would have won out over geekery.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@marclehmann Friend’s father has patent on tech for printing numbered ads on the plastic lids of takeaway coffee, should you be interested.

Mon plan: Run thru all current projects, contact clients and keep them happy.; invoicing arvo; evening gym/dinner with @SnarkyPlatypus.

@joypog I’m glad I didn’t bother going to Canberra for the weekend. It may have been good for networking but the Summit disappointed.
