@dedlam I don’t have figures on Aust uptake of social media handy atm. Usually we adopt new tech fast, but not as extrovert as Americans.

During @mpesce’s keynote, when audience was asked about 10% use Twitter. Saw journos writing down “Twitter” boldly.

@bengrubb We don’t “need” Flash on iPhone. We “need” clean water, sewerage and basic medical care for the other half of the planet.

@SnarkyPlatypus Egos are not to be balanced. Egos are to be thrown to the floor, STAMPED ON REPEATEDLY AND REDUCED TO A BLOODY PULP!

@trib hashtags.org wins, was immediately obvious what I needed to do to make it happen. Twemes had too many stuffz for me to read.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@joshsharp Yep, I mean precisely like http://www.hashtags.org/… thank you! I must now connect to them!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to joshsharp

@ApostrophePong Excellent, they were good wedding photos. Will you be publishing any online?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

Dear Twitterverse, can haz easy linkage to all tagged tweets? Will blog same and give kudos & beer.

@garthk So if Wikipedia got a designer to give it an “imperial” look’n’feel and a Latin motto, we’d trust it more? Yes? We are all puppets!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@garthk Britannica’s authority is assumed, no longer real. Impartially measured, error rates much the same. Both have their biases.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@LacqueredStudio Britannica has already seriously changed business models but are only up to denial and then anger. Next stage is…?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

OK, I has WiFi in the “Recharge Bar”… looking thru tweets, will respond selectively as next session begins soon.

Every tertiary student in Aust gets free access to Expression Studio 2.

Big Brother live feed is done in Silverlight.

… just like The Microsoft Network and Blackbird in 1995. ActiveX, .Net… Just keep rebranding & present as freemix

via Cloudhopper

There’s an implicit assumption that everthing will be funded by advertising, Windows Live as a platform. Deja vu…

via Cloudhopper

Microsoft Windows Live guy is demoing in Firefox, and says so out loud.

via Cloudhopper

Example of using tools from Windows Live data centre: http://sosonetwork.com

No-one ever talk about the highest cost of web dev: acquiring users, says Windows Live guy.

IE8 is standards mode by default, IE-tweaked sites will break, fixed with 1 line.

Can anyone tell me why, with all the different people attending CeBIT, people are flocking to Jason Calacanis like flies to a dead sheep?

Note to web designers: the “best” design is the one that sells. http://is.gd/jm5

Emerging. Clearing the inbox before deciding how to shape the day.

Methinks it’s time to evaporate. The energy of a Full Moon has exhausted me. Ciao.

I wish to point out that I did not create that Wikipedia page. I would never do anything so irresponsible.

via Twitter Web Client

@jodiem Twitter is “fixed” in the same way we got our tomcat “fixed”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

ROFL! Before it disappears… http://is.gd/j2I Wikipedia now TELLS THE TRUTH!

via Twitter Web Client

@neerav Don’t worry, I’m usually just as ruthless when pruning CeBIT for attention-worthy stuff. I always skip the big players.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

Ooh! Tweetstas has a new kind of graph! http://is.gd/j1Y Tweet density across each day. Somewhat cool.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge I don’t think I offended enough people today. I’ll have to make up for it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@enneff If @Nickhodge thinks you’re right, then I shall be your disciple.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to enneff

@franksting I’m not sure. Does an iPod touch have a Hollerith card reader? I couldn’t see the tape drives./.. maybe they’re an add-on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@Nickhodge Trade shows are one step up from a street hooker: wobble your bits, flash some bling, hope the punter picks you. You have 5 secs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Someone dismissed CeBIT today after 1hr. With 700 exhibitors, that’s 5 seconds each. Now THAT’S considered thinking!

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge I saw a computer today that was so small one man could carry it. And he was cute. (Oh dear, I’ll get in trouble for that one.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@JoshAnstey There IS plenty of innovation. Just don’t expect it at CeBIT. Innovation doesn’t need chicks in bikinis or lame-arsed giveaways.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JoshAnstey

Congratulations, Australia Post. You’ve given me enough of my neighbour’s mail to commit identity theft.

via Twitter Web Client

@JoshAnstey CeBIT isn’t about innovation. CeBIT is a big shop for selling your products to business customers who don’t read the Internet.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JoshAnstey

@DamianM My tweets today will also become the core notes for whatever I end up writing about today. Reviewing them momentarily.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DamianM

Meanwhile you will all achieve greater understanding by learning about the UIBN. http://is.gd/j1n All hail Eris!

Camomile tea will help.

@DamianM Boy did you choose an excellent moment to join my Twitterworld. ;)

It did not happen. It did not happen on bus number 3798 running route 428 at 7.40pm this evening.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce There was no scene on the bus. The was therefore no video (pace, Sydney Buses). There are no tubes. Nothing to see here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@smc2911 Yes, I saw as hot pick on http://twemes.com. That is A Good Thing. Gods of Microsoft will smile. Demons of CeBIT frown.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@crispin_harris It was not a scene where people were told to move down the bus because THE CENTRE DOORS ARE NOT A FUCKING MAGIC BARRIER!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispin_harris

I did not cause a scene on the bus. I did not cause a scene on the bus. I did not cause a scene on the bus. No, I did not.

Returned home, after 2.5 hours of dead phone battery. Atlantic salmon on Asian salad with lime helps. Beer also helps. All geeks must die.

@duncanriley Welcome to Sydney. Please try not be alarmed, it’s always like this.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to duncanriley

@mpesce When Twitter goes down in 50 mins, a little place in all our hearts is crushed. Our souls will never recover, even with caching.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@stevendoyle No problem, beers gratefully accepted. I will be at @stub tomorrow night in all probability.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stevendoyle

@neuraxon77 True, is but I’ll start using it anyway since it makes me look all cool and connected and stuff.

via Twitter Web Client

@neuraxon77 True, doing http://summize.com/searc… does the job bit that seems… primitive. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@stevendoyle If you’re talking CeBIT trade show floor pass, my promotion code is “stilcs08”. Feel free.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stevendoyle

@plasmaegg Oh I hit CeBIT tomorrow. Was just wanting to tag that announcement to be polite. Can’t find a chosen hashtag.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@mr_gadget Me, a gamer? Nah far, far from it! Unless it’s a real-time mil sim, not a shooter, and that’s all out of style.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_gadget

Dear Twitterverse, is there a hashtag for CeBIT Sydney? maybe? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@tibbetts_sound The feral goldfish are schooling: you are now followed! And if you post cocktail recipes on Day 1 you can’t be all bad.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tibbetts_sound

Excellent. Mic adapter arrived, tests OK. I’ll be able to record interviews as planned. 30 mins to spare! Thanks @ApostrophePong

via Twitter Web Client

As Tim Aidlin demos Expression Studio 2, I’m thinking “So much STUFF on screen in dev apps”.

via Cloudhopper

I’ve just been “reliably informed” that Microsoft marketing is primarily amphetamine distribution, and been offered sex. Gosh.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I should automatically block your tweets during business hours, they can be disturbing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Is it ethical to use a media badge as cover to cruise teh hotties?

via Cloudhopper

Overhearing discussion of org chart changes at Fairfax Digital. Hierarchy, how quaint.

@taylorsummach Welcome to my Twitterworld. It’ll be VERY geek-heavy the next few days ‘cos I’m at conferences. http://is.gd/hgo

via Twitter Web Client

Twitterage from @auremix seems to have slowed. Are people actually paying attention to presentations?

via Twitter Web Client

@decryption “Famous?” Anything *apart* from famous? Flocking gape-jawed to mere fame confirms people are sheep. Or flies. Respect dropping.

@craigchilds Welcome to my Twitterworld, and good morning! How did I blip up on your radar?
