@zuzu Welcome to my Twitterworld. :) I guess I, as a Taurean, need to wear a bell too, as a warning to others? Moo.

@mpesce That’s probably about enough pimping the wond’rousness of your new Macbook Pro courtesy of Apple KTHXBAI.

@smc2911 Thanks for that. Retweet: Treasurer Wayne Swan redefines “future”. http://tinyurl.com/48fe7o I’ll blog the relevant bit now.

Crikey article sent! And now to identify some themes for my bloggy blog bog…

I’m currently working on my Crikey piece, deciding how snarky I should be. Probable answer: “Very.”

via Twitter Web Client

@smc2911 Sorry, but that’s a direct quote from Swan on PM: “You’re confusing the name ‘Future Fund’ with a fund for the future.”

Emerging early, for some reason. Weather? Cats? Something like that.

@SnarkyPlatypus I didn’t watch TV. Can’t tell you what Julie Bishop was wearing. Not her night. Wait until Thursday for Malcolm’s response.

As far as I can tell, $5M allocated this year to figure out process & implementation of network. Actual costs will be decided later.

Broadband rollout is what we know already: RFP is out, decision on preferred proponent(s) in October. Construction starts by end of 2008.

via Twitter Web Client

@crispynoodles Start with the 45-page Budget Overview, then the 352-page Budget Paper No. 1. Dig elsewhere as interest takes you.

@grah Welcome to my Twitterworld. For the next couple of hours I’m spurting out Budget observations so I can write properly tomorrow.

Depreciating computer software capex over 4 years will be a boost for SaaS, which can be expensed out. Or is 4 years less than before?

Cyber-safety Plan over next 4 years: $25M, $51.7M, $25.5M, $23.6M.

@crispynoodles The 30-minute speech is just the spin. The ACTUAL budget is at http://budget.gov.au, 2000+ pages.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

$271M over 4 years for rural & regional broadband guarantee. “Equitable” access, sounds like a subsidy to me.

via Twitter Web Client

Budget: $20B goes into “Building Aust Fund”, “up to” $4.7B out for broadband rollout (figure was an election promise).

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I’m doing the geek view of the Budget for Crikey. About to dig into the docs now.

Treasurer asked if Future Fund isn’t for the future, what’s it for: “You’re confusing the name ‘Future Fund’ with a fund for the future.”

via Twitter Web Client

OK, starting to go thru the Federal Budget papers to see what’s what. Joy.

via Twitter Web Client

All the budget papers are at http://budget.gov.au and the devil is in the details… Download, search and share your findings. ;)

“Our nation has the potential to be a financial services hub”? What, when Australia has the world’s most expensive banking system? LOL!

via Twitter Web Client

“Up to $1M” per school over 5 years for computers to students in years 9 to 12. All’s “over 5 years”. Need details for THIS year’s $.

via Twitter Web Client

Treasurer Swan is due to say the phrase “working families” 13 times in this speech. Have you been counting them off?

via Twitter Web Client

Budget key words so far: “working families” and “economic turbulence abroad”, 3x each at least

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus It’s both low-brow AND hosted by a Daddo. In how many ways could it be worse…?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@SnarkyPlatypus I recommend you listen to ABC 702… the quiz is currently asking the names of the Brady Bunch kids.

@mpesce Your Macbook Pro’s screen brightness may be varying ‘cos it’s tracking ambient light. You can turn that off.

Pot kettle black: Facebook just warned me for “spamming”. LOL! I was linking up with friends and used similar messages since I’m lazy.

@boztek http://aph.gov.au is VERY site. All sessions of House, Senate and committees streamed live, transcripts available next morning.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to boztek

@boztek Or ABC News Radio streams on the web too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to boztek

@boztek The Budget speech will be streamed from the parliament website, like all parliament sessions. Reporting? Maybe ABC TV will stream.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to boztek

Browsing friends of friends on Facebook and Twitter, reconnecting. Killing time before the Federal Budget is released, basically.
