Should I keep the feral goldfish avatar? The joke seems to linger on…

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I think “Feral Goldfish” is a position description, not my name. I can usually manage to remember my own name.

@Nickhodge [smirks] Microsoft isn’t THE first conference organiser to get my name right, but there haven’t been many before now.

@Nickhodge You will be pleased to know I’m doing a video interview with Tim Aidlin at ReMIX tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@andrewdotnich At least I had the sense to test everything BEFORE having to record tomorrow. ;) I only feel about 75% stupid.

Balanced XLR mic adapter’d to 3.5mm socket using mono adapter = severe interference. That I forgot such Audio Engineering 101 is EPIC FAIL.

UK shopping centres trial tracking customers via mobile phones: what shops they visit, how long etc. http://is.gd/is2

All this thinking is making my head spin. It’s dinner time and a break is called for.

@mpesce The MSM news stories on Twitter probably just doubled its buy price. If anyone wants to buy it, they need to be buying it NOW.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce But Google could ALREADY data mine the Twitterstream without owning it. Tweets are (mostly) in the open, there’s an API… [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Agreed re the growth pace of Twitter. I’m astounded how quickly for me it replaced so many other comms tools.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Google bought Jaiku. Now they can buy Twitter too and merge them. Solved.

@lu_lu Dividing the world in that way is most acceptable, yes. I shall have all the men without suits. Now, where to begin…?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lu_lu

@misswired You know when the brain sees that something is happening but knows it’s too late to stop it? Baby cockroach in water glass…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@lu_lu We shall have to agree to disagree about men in suits then. :) It’d be boring if everyone thought the same though.

@SnarkyPlatypus How dare you bring these parts of your reality into MY reality. My reality is much better. It has velvet curtains.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@lu_lu @allisonr Sorry, a guy in a suit? Instant label: “I am a cog in a corporate machine. I have no individuality.” Sex appeal: zero.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lu_lu

@SnarkyPlatypus I have no recollection of the conversation to which you refer, Your Honour.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Monday evening replanned. Gym cancelled. Can haz beer. Learning borrowed Canon HV20 camera for conference recordings.

@aDB You’re the examiner for your own son’s Cub Scout badges? Don’t the Scouts know the words “ethics” and “conflict of interest”?

How many calories are there in a baby cockroach? Would it affect the beneficial nature of green tea?

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Oh absolutely. All time spent on the quotes gets rolled into the project cost. “Free consulting thru successive quotation” is evil.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Trying to finalise costings for a project while the client keeps emailing new ideas which totally change the way it’d have to be done.

@smc2911 Thanks for the link to your musings on inflation. http://tinyurl.com/5wpne5 Won’t be able to read properly today, but saved!

Just saw a news headline: “Cryptography vs Hackers: the battle continues”. Umm… well, yes.

@SnarkyPlatypus Questions like “Do you remember absinthe night?” answer themselves.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Writing this story will require me to spend too much time watching Bananarama videos. I am somewhat fearful. “Fearhalfful”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus No, I was going with “gun” rather than “gin”. Both can be worked into the story. Hope the Pepper Mines treat you well today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I accept your challenge! Actually, with that choice of 4 key words, it should be VERY easy. Not this week tho, too busy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

No link back yet, can’t respond to tweets until in media room.

Twitter + Wikipedia = Revolution! Now add rich media! We’re at cusp of explosion of innovation.

via Cloudhopper

We need to put all this knowledge to work thru our connections to improve our decisions.

via Cloudhopper

Wikipedia surpasses 250yo Encyclopedia Britannica in 5y, is just as accurate, free, fast.

via Cloudhopper

There’s a disconnect between the way we do business and what’s happening out there on teh internetz.

via Cloudhopper

@mpesce’s TweetWheel looks like a bird’s nest. Rumours can destroy company’s reputation in an afternoon.

@TechCrunch Tells story of Michael Arrington & Twitter vs Comcast. Hyperconnectiviemix

Approaching Powerhouse Museum. Will I make the start of @mpesce’s keynote?

via Cloudhopper

City Rd / Broadway is a traffic jam, as usual. Is urban planning a lost art of the Renaissance?

via Cloudhopper

Departing for Microsoft ReMIX at Powerhouse Musem. http://is.gd/iLT Will attempt to tweet if can haz power & Wiemix

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein So @mpesce is pimping me now? Yeah, I can be “interesting”… like watching a slow motion plane crash.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@velvetsarah Uniforms CAN be a symbol of authority, but they can also be a symbol of compliance: schoolgirl/boy vs SS. Too early for this!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to velvetsarah

Emerging, not quite too early. Tues plan: finish client proposal, then Microsoft ReMIX 08 (Sydney) all day. http://is.gd/iLT

via Twitter Web Client

I must save that earlier Twitter thread re men’s suits as a sexually submissive signal. Meanwhile, I sleep before ReMIX 08. http://is.gd/iug

@jeffsonstein Welcome to you too. How did I blip up on your radar? I don’t have much profile in New York… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@GMcGrath Welcome to my Twitterworld. I might even follow you back if you’d sent even a single tweet or had ANY info about yourself.

via Twitter Web Client

@80sAirwaves Thanks for the follow, but yesterday’s overload of Bananarama and Pseudo Echo was abnormal. You’ll be disappointed. ;)
