80% of room alertly looking at iPhone screenshots on the big screen. They clearly haven’t ever seen the thing. They are truly DOOMED!

via Twitter Web Client

(Does this mean that iPhone in Australia will also have unlimited data plans? Is this Apple’s deal?)

via Twitter Web Client

iPhone purchase experience: data included so no fear of cost, can sign up in iTunes, simple options, no in-store sign-up.

via Twitter Web Client

Weidlich expanding on those problem points. Alert folks in audience. Is this stuff NEW to them? In 2008? Fark!

via Twitter Web Client

@sboiling Vignette guy was indeed Bertrand de Coatpoint.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sboiling

Problems with mobiles: data plans; irrelevant functions; poor access to apps & content; small screen & buttons; slow nav; net drts. #mcw

Oliver Weidlich on stage, session on iPhone user experience.

via Twitter Web Client

Afternoon tea. Next session on impact of iPhone starts 3pm Sydney time. Must save battery for that!

via Twitter Web Client

Twice now the Vignette guy has said it’s all about creating a more “addictive” experience for young people. What sort of ethic is that?

via Twitter Web Client

Making your content “social” seems to be about sprinkling magic social dust like “commenting”. Apparently.

via Twitter Web Client

Presentation now on Vignette Digital Services Hub. Yawn. Claims to have invented idea of web CMS! Bold!

via Cloudhopper

Telstra & other telcos getting grief for complicated data pla#ocw

via Cloudhopper

On mobile interface, “satisfaction of impulse” is key. Must tap into 10-second impulse.

via Cloudhopper

In. Michael Beresford from Telstra on. No WiFi. 3G connect fail. Bloody SMS again.

via Cloudhopper

All paths lead to gaming room. I can not haz gaming room. Must haz TV execs.

via Cloudhopper

Arrived Star City, looking for registration desk.

via Cloudhopper

OK, off to Mobile Content World. If I can haz WiFi I’ll tag tweets with . If not, I’ll save all my bile for my little program tonight.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I’m glad you recall me making the statement because it was like… oh… ONLY FUCKING YESTERDAY! OK, I’m now in right state for MCW.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@tristjones Morphic resonance? Man, it is AMAZING to see conversation topics ripple thru Twitter. Use http://summize.com to track thm.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tristjay

@mpesce@stilgherrian *and* Twitter ist geborked” perhaps, but at least Twitter can be fixed. Oh. No. Other way around.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce “Twitter is (like all networks) just an amplifier. Natural news-bringers bring news. Natural wankers wank.” via Summize.com

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Well at least my tweets aren’t *continually* dull. Incomprehensibly obscure, or just plain confusing maybe, but not dull.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce “I just unfollowed someone whose updates, over whole weeks, continued to be dull as.” See my tweet re networks as amplifiers. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@tristjones Re @mpesce: I’d rather have @trisjones wait until next week when I will have video. Text: http://tinyurl.com/5uls8s Edumacation!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tristjay

Just ONE more coffee before going to Mobile Content World. Need to be in same mindspace as TV/Movie/Telco executives.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Can you plz tell @tristjones where your education rant is? He just graduated as a primary school teacher so we must infect his mind.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@jeffsonstein I know I know, the world is going to hell in a handbasket. The other day I even heard that an elected official LIED in public!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@tristjones Yes, following me on Twitter is the second-best decision you’ve ever made. (I assume your lovely lady is the first-best.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tristjay

@sethyates No, Twitter isn’t stable yet, but at least it’s delivering a consistent level of up-fuckedness.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sethyates

@BernardK The episode 5 mistake was fixed about 90 minutes ago. stop living in the past. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 19bk69

@jeffsonstein Yes and saying “good” websites will still be OK to visit with flawed Flash player is like thinking “Nice girls don’t have VD.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

US-CERT just issued a n alert re Adobe Flash Player. Time to upgrade, folks.

@jeamland The passport works, yes, but I will now fax a copy of my passport to a business interstate…? They can LOOK at it, not copy it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

Getting pretty fucked off with companies that think a driver’s license is needed to do business. Do you want my $1000 order or not?

via Twitter Web Client

Head down while I write things for Crikey.

via Twitter Web Client

Fri plan: Write up for Crikey; 1100 client meeting The Rocks, Sydney; lunch there?; afternoon at desk tidying loose ends; evening free.

via Twitter Web Client

@mr_gadget Morning! Glad you enjoyed the… spectacle. ;) If you want to see it again it’s at the top of http://stilgherrian.com ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_gadget

@DCouch Welcome, also… Your profile’s a bit thin there, though, I must say. Makes you look like a stalker.

via Twitter Web Client

@IanWoolf Welcome to my Twitterworld! :) I hope you find something of interest… as a broadcaster, you’re bound to! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanWoolf

Emerging into… what are we up to? Friday! If it’s Friday, why does it hurt so much?

@wolfcat Welcome to my very odd Twitterworld (and live media experiments).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@limburger2001 Sorry, no transcripts or notes on Stilgherrian Live Alpha. It’s, um, live. I work from very rough notes. That will change.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@jeffsonstein I’m running the program at 9.30pm Sydney time each Thursday night. I think it’s about 0430 your time.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Returning to Twitterverse after SLA ep 4 and dinner. Thanks for all the supportive comment, people! Recorded program at http://is.gd/nwL

via Twitter Web Client

Sorting out the audio problems for Stilgherrian Live Alpha episode 4 http://stilgherrian.com/…

via Twitter Web Client

Wow. Cam Twist settings migrated successfully to new MacBook Pro. I will be daring, @mpesce! I shall USE THE NEW COMPUTER!

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb The “alpha mode” runs for 8 episodes”, then decide how I want it to go from there. [Sometimes I wonder why I have a website…] ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

70 minutes until episode 4 of Stilgherrian Live Alpha… 9.30pm Sydney time at http://is.gd/dnm Quake and tremble!

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @jjprojects Yes, DO leave Andy Warhol alone. You don’t know where he’s been… [passes cloth]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@totalomnivore A link in Twitter? You just put in the link and it auto-converts. Cleverness is built in.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to totalomnivore

Retweet @tangararama:”The only thing a VCR is good for is to watch old porno movies.” Exactly.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk MacBook Po was successfully cold-booted, but haven’t tried to do anything with it yet. Will try it once I have program inserts done.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@plasmaegg Yes, a cold reset it is… Computers, eh?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@totalomnivore “Why must we take an Adelaide parklands train of thought on this one?” What IS that train of thought, exactly? [shudders]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to totalomnivore

I’m starting to suspect that the MacBook Pro still not finished booting for 15 minutes after installing Soundflower is a Bad thing.

via Twitter Web Client

@totalomnivore “When was the last time you had possum fur up close and personal?” You think I’ll answer that in public?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to totalomnivore

@ApostrophePong “Going to drink with Sydney PhotoBloggers at Bank Hotel” translates as “See you some time Saturday”? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@oliverw Oh I’m sure we’ll meet up at some point. I only popped into for a bit this afternoon, was a last-minute assignment.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliverw

@mpesce I also have problems with Vodafone not being able to maintain 3G data links in busy periods. Will try your USB method too, tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Installing software on the new MacBook Pro in the hope that tonight’s program will be less crap technically. The content will still be crap.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce See, now you are starting to understand the logic. Pointful ~= pub ~= Eurovision. I’m sure you can more links to the chain.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@shanegold And welcome to you too… I can guess how I blipped up on YOUR radar today! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to shanegold

@DebHuff Re mobile events worth going to, I’ starting to think that any event not at a pub is pointless. Out of date info for the droids.

via Twitter Web Client

@DebHuff Hey and welcome to you too… I’m picking up a lot of traffic this week. Scary.

via Twitter Web Client

@adrianlynch Thanks for the reminder about Dave Winer, but yes Vignette did just claim to have invented CMS 15 years ago. Sure.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to adrianlynch

Coffee, food, relaxation then prep for episode 4 of Stilgherrian Live Alpha at 9.30pm Sydney time. http://is.gd/dnm

via Twitter Web Client

@oliverw Oh hello! I was only talking about you this afternoon. ;) Welcome to my Twitterworld. I’ll make further contact in due course.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliverw

Back on the grid from my luxurious home office overlooking the grand plazas of Enmore, Sydney. Well, it’s dark… I can use my imagination.

via Twitter Web Client

“Luxurious possum fur” is an oxymoron.

via Cloudhopper

Going offline… will be back on grid later.

via Twitter Web Client

Crapped-out N80 battery about to die, but I think I’ve got my story. Confirmed that content producers are well behind the pace.

via Twitter Web Client

@mbuckbee Yes, SMS fees work out at $750 per megabyte. Talk about gouging!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mbuckbee

Weidlich speculates users will start using mobile apps on their PCs because less useless guff in interface.

via Twitter Web Client

@leslien Oh it really does feel like I’ve stepped back in time. And not in a good Kyliesque sense.

via Twitter Web Client

@metarand’s post from earlier: “Mobile Content World: Deer In The iPhone Headlights” http://is.gd/nnu Agree with his point now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to metarand

@mbuckbee Weidlich was talking about US experience. Given data cost is biggest consumer far, MUST be overcome.
