@allisonr Cheers! Now I just have to figure out how to *achieve* the 4-day week. And in just what number system I’d be 22yo. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to allisonr

I’ve decided! Starting next week I will adopt a 4-day working week. First “day off” is Friday 9 May, my, erm, 22nd [cough] birthday.

This can’t be fucking Twitter Fuck Day, you fucktards! You haven’t given enough fucking time to fucking well plan it, you fucking cunts!

@mpesce I loved your live commentary from the SA Govt conference today. It’d edit up to make an excellent essay about how behind they are.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Retweet @jjprojects: I saw this funny book in the weekend called “Fuck this book”. Here’s the site http://fuckthiswebsite.c…

Down-tools time as far as clients go. Reading & writing & chatting before @ApostrophePongophePong promised to do something with a chicken.

@acatinatree I’m reading your tweets to decide if you’re a boy cat or girl cat. I still cannot decide, but I know that you write words good.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to acatinatree

Failing to do creative client work today. I always fail that on a Monday. Time to rearrange the week!

@mspecht “MS PowerPoint” == Multiple Sclerosis PowerPoint?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mspecht

@acatinatree If clients NEED it TODAY and can’t wait 24 hours, it’s their problem. Should have planned ahead. Took me ages to learn that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to acatinatree

The DPP explains why charges against The Chaser crew were dropped. http://is.gd/9wx good, clearly-written legal reasoning.

via Twitter Web Client

@acatinatree I think it’s about having the strength to say “No”. “I’m already booked out that day, can we do Tuesday instead?”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to acatinatree

@acatinatree 4 day working week? Just do it! Read material linked from here: http://is.gd/9wj Works for 37signals.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to acatinatree

@willhughes “Web 2.0” is indeed a similar thing, though I have to be careful what I say ‘cos @SilkCharm is watching… Ssssh!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

@mpesce “Web 3.0” is a wank-work used by people who need to give the impression that they know more than you do because, really, they don’t.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

I just got a “Dear Bloggers” email from CeBIT. Has anyone heard of CeBIT before? Maybe they should send more emails to make sure we know.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Checking off Monday’s to-do list… “Subvert the hierarchy”… done! [Pats self on back]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

My previous two tweets are not related in any way.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett Yes, opt-out organ donation. People can USE organs once your “spirit” (whatever that is) departs. Burying meat is pointless.

via Twitter Web Client

@RichardGiles Emergency Porn is why they invented 16GB USB memory devices: 3 x feature-length filth vids in your pocket!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to RichardGiles

Organ donor registration form has been completed. [Insert obvious lame jokes here, and then move on.]

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce They’re pimping email eh? Next they’ll extol the virtues of the horseless carriage and that new petroleum oil for lighting.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

CeBIT Sydney has *another* “exclusive limited offer” of 100 free exhibition passes. That don’t sound so fuckin’ exclusive. Spammy cunts.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce You’re in a city full of repressed middle-class control freaks, and you’re telling them have no control? Will you get out alive?

Quote outta my slush pile: “Hong Kong, what a shit of a city! Full of skyscrapers and washing.”

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett Well, “chicken” IS another word used alongside “twink” and “bear”, at least in 1970s, but we’ll choose not to go there today.

via Twitter Web Client

@acatinatree Welcome to my Twitterworld. May you survive my sense of humour, or at least die gloriously in the attempt.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to acatinatree

@andrewbarnett That’s my quote du jour: “We’re not here to fuck chickens, boyo!” Useful in so many circumstances.

via Twitter Web Client

@bck Sorry, what are you doing with these “email chickens” of which you speak? Do they lay eggs, or are they for cooking? Or bed-fun? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bck

Cleaners being 1hr+ late annoying. Can’t start proper brainwork until sounds of vacuum cleaners go away, but they have yet to start.

@Nickhodge I am interested in your ideas re MSM and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

There’s a specific German word for the process of opinion- and agenda-forming, anyone know what it is? [mental block]

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk Yes, Celltx as the film/AV pre-prod tool http://is.gd/9P9 and Scrivener as the writer’s tool http://is.gd/6Tv … ahead of ya!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@cait I don’t listen to “many”, more a select few. Time constraints. My focus as broadcaster was always live, that’s what I want to explore.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

@cait Fear not! I shall listen to your show this week, as well as many others. ;) [Click. “Global Geek Podcast” goes into iTunes.]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

Maybe technically it’s Ustream to get live input, but separately record high-quality audio and post-sync for archived version. [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client

@cait I’ve also noted that podcasts sound either like ABC Radio National (people talking to themselves), or worst of community (ditto).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

@cait As a former ABC radio guy, I DO appreciate attention to audio, trust me! I’m brainstorming this week, and your comments noted…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

@garthk CamTwirl allows me to mix in pics/video of things I’m talking about… tho thoughts are very much still evolving this week.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@garthk Current thinking is CamTwirl/Ustream for main feed, Skype for inbound voice. Will decide Monday, re-assess after pilot 8 eps.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@cait Poor audio in Ustream etc will pass. The interactivity *during* the conversation is important. Perhaps “live to tape” is a better tag?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

@cait Is it still podcasting if the focus is “live”? Yes, 8 x weekly eps as a trial in May/June. http://is.gd/9kB

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

@deanlk I’ll report my podcasting progress in detail. It’ll be interesting to see how my traditional broadcaster’s mind makes the change.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

@deanlk Re me blogging “right mix of geekery and Aust news & politics”, ta! It’s a geek’s perspective, “how it works”, on those issues.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

@andrewbarnett Still, business managers who don’t understand computers by now are “incompetent”, as I’ve written before: http://is.gd/9Nz

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett While I admire direct and honest communication, I suspect that telling the client he’s stupid will not win me the job.

via Twitter Web Client

I am still trying to remember the specific German word for the process of political agenda- and opinion-formation. I hate memory loss.

via Twitter Web Client

@pfanderson Thanks. I try to make tweets relevant or at least amusing for people who don’t know the context. A good discipline, I reckon.

@garthk I have looked for the mouse. I have found it. It looks interesting and it shall be investigated this afternoon. Ta.

Emerging into cold, clear morning light to resist the sirens’ call. The sirens are ragged today. Their song is weak. No lashing is required.

I think it’s well past my bedtime, given that @ApostrophePong and I both have early starts tomorrow, in our separate ways. [evaporates]

via Twitter Web Client

@cait well there goes @jjprojects theory that he’d lose followers for swearing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

@deanlk Welcome yet another stalker! Wow so much attention today, even omitting the spammers. What did I do to deserve this?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

@dekrazee1 Twitter ha disabled your browser’s keyboard shortcuts as part of that censorship attempt, and the JavaScript has buggered Gmail.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dekrazee1

I just realised that Getting Things Done HAS to reduce your inbox to zero content, otherwise the cat doesn’t have anywhere to sleep.

@pronoiapierce Oh the ███ at Twitter decided to censor high-traffic █████ if they ███. But it doesn’t work for everyone.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to melissapierce

@eztephen Ah, you also hate it when there’s a typo, even on Twitter eh?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eztephen

I was supposed to comment on the DPP’s decision to drop charges against The Chaser team. http://is.gd/9wx But I think it’s all been said.

via Twitter Web Client

@eztephen Welcome too, an may the gods have mercy upon your ███!

I think I might make a few statements of relevance so that my website Twitter feed doesn’t look quite so ████.

OK, time to stop talking about podcasting and do some billable hours. All input greatly appreciated! More soon.
