@wolfcat If you can get a gun into Melbourne, I can show you the target.

I am still recovering from being singled out by @Mediamum for a “special mention”. Teh interwebs am dangerous for all, be warned.

I am now understanding why they don’t let me bring firearms to conferences.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, this one man has given me enough fuel for at least SIX CONTINUOUS RANTING ABOUT COMPLETE CLUELESSNESS.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear man on stage, please look up the phrase “unique selling proposition” kthxbye.

via Twitter Web Client

Is the man on stage actually thrilled with the idea that you can have a home page in your web browser? Who’d have thought…

via Twitter Web Client

The amount of money committed to television this season has…. [snorez]

PBL guy has too much fuckin’ words on his PowerPoint screen, he must die.

@trib is reinforcing my memes, they are bolstered. Now, we need to see who agrees already and who’s too afraid to own up otherwise.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

For once, I am totally without a response for something I’ve just heard on stage.

via Twitter Web Client

The semantic web is about trying to improve whatever it was that was mentioned while I was playing with Summize. I am not helping.

via Twitter Web Client

From 2005 half of content online produced by users/citizens… sorry, are professionals not citizens too? What are we measuring?

via Twitter Web Client

Resisting temptation to heckle, need to hear more newer special factoids that I can show off with.

via Twitter Web Client

Trying to find someone on this side of the room who is NOT tweeting the session, failing. First @mpesce namedrop at 1515 AEST.

Organic Rump Steak was $22.00 now $12.45 kg. Not but bloody good price. Let me know.

Jed White on. Waiting for a soundbite. Wang VMS mini-computer mentioned, Star Trek game. Play with microphones. Start again.

Just think of Bronwyn Clune and a bathtub of jelly… trust me.

Dear Bus Driver, if having to change a $50 is your day’s worst then you and Mr 9mm need to chat.

Heading to Circular Quay for PubCamp Sydney. [Insert URL here for Google-phobic sloths.]

@SnarkyPlatypus I wonder when the US will realise it’s no longer a First World nation? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Mosman. Copying files. Length of progress bar increasing. All is good with the world. (Thought I’d ever say that?)

via Twitter Web Client

@sboiling The Politics & Tech Forum is Wed morning in CBR, for some value of “morning”. Dunno past that, I@Nickhodgeodge’s bitch.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sboiling

@rogerchristie I’m hoping someone has audio somewhere, so I can hear what I actually said, and turn it into an article! :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rogerchristie

@SnarkyPlatypus Ah, musical theatre, is there anything it can’t solve…?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@smperris Ah my information about tobacco addiction is second-hand. Oddly, given my generation & peers, I avoided that “habit”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

I am now officially overwhelmed with & new Twitter followers. I wasn’t even#ggd, Apple store queue or d/loading FF3. Breathe.

via Twitter Web Client

@rogerchristie We didn’t chat at , but “practicality of Twitter” is legitimate NOW. Real people use it “for real”. http://is.gd/mbL

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rogerchristie

@eskimo_sparky Good luck with the “stop smoking” project, sir! Friends say the first 5 years are the hardest, once past that you’ll be fine.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eskimo_sparky

To collect all Twitter traffic, use Summize.com thusly: http://is.gd/ALz Without live context, much will be baffling.

via Twitter Web Client

@mendicott Agree re some presenters yesterday, did nothing more than pimp their project. Still, some very good connections made.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mendicott

Retweet @paullyoung: 10 Iconic sounds of Australia: http://tinyurl.com/68wyq3 No time to look now. Are they a good choice, do you reckon?

via Twitter Web Client

Thu plan: Mostly at the Mosman client, tidying network loose ends (tomorrow too); other tasks online from there; dunno about tonight.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein I tweet my data into the Twittersphere. To paraphrase Gibson, it finds its own uses for it. I see responses, my tweets evolve.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Hi. The other Q I see: “What can I use Twitter for?” A: Anything you think anyone else could want to know or you want to say.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@tomkelshaw Twitter makes a lot more sense if you actually use it and see how it works for you… though I will write an essay about this.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tomkelshaw

@tomkelshaw People see each other’s @replies, notice someone of interest, decide to follow. Twitter is still emergent though…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tomkelshaw

Emerges. Full Moon, I tell you, Full Moon. Plenty of things to flip thru to start the day… email, tweets… prioritisation! [Whew!]

via Twitter Web Client

Collapsing into slumber. Tomorrow is busy, with little chance for writing. reflections will therefore come Friday or Saturday.

via Twitter Web Client

@renailemay We must talk. You must follow @mpesce and whoever else I find that you’re missing. ;) Doing this at 0100 is insane.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

@tomkelshaw Twitter is not “glorified IRC” because everyone’s channel structure is unique, therefore cross-pollination, and http://is.gd/mbL

@TimNoonan “Largely sober from ”? You are doing it wrong!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TimNoonan

@jkerrstevens Twitter is used by couriers to warn of delays. I use it all the time to get feedback on an idea, or for research.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jkerrstevens

To the 10 (!) new followers since this afternoon’s outburst, welcome. I’ll look at and respond to your worlds over the next couple of days.

via Twitter Web Client

@jkerrstevens Justin, hello to you and your Twitter demo-ees. I promise not to swear for the next half hour.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jkerrstevens

The Full Moon is at 0332 Sydney time (that’s just under 3 hours from now), and it’s in Taurus. don’t say I didn’t warn you.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk Google for me just now puts me at #3 for “pubcamp sydney”. And I haven’t even written my main commentary yet!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@JoshAnstey I don’t blog from the phone as such. I just use the phone as a 3G modem and do all “work” from my MacBook Pro.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JoshAnstey

Quick blip-up online before bed. Thanks @jedwhite &acamp team for food & alcohol. Lulz to idiots queuing up for opening of a shop.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m still limited in connectivity thanks to limited 3G phone battery life. Will probably do some longer piece later.

via Twitter Web Client

Can the panel each say which social media sites they use, and why, and how they’ve changed their lives around social media?

via Twitter Web Client

When most Aust’ns have a computer, >50% of them have a Facebook page etc, why are you still seeing this as hypothetical?

via Twitter Web Client

So why are we still saying this is a “challenge” when it’s the same challenge as 1995?

via Twitter Web Client

Main lesson from folks on stage now: It’s 1995 again. Still grappling with concept that people can choose other outlets. Globally.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers I probably will explode once the event format allows someone other that the people on stage to speak except as a joke.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@SnarkyPlatypus There’s a pre-selected pub for @stub after , so yes, drinks. Much needed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

has been running 2.5 hours with no toilet or caffeine breaks… this is seriously wrong. My bladder is now empty for the panel.

via Twitter Web Client

I’ve been absorbing everything quietly, and I think some sort of synthesis will emerge in due course… when opportunity happens.

via Twitter Web Client

@DJPoyner Nothing is “wrong”. Everything is permitted. Everything permitted is compulsory.

via Twitter Web Client

Need to save 3G battery life. Going dark to reserve that. People have… expectations of me.

via Twitter Web Client

This one man has used the term “Web 2.0” in at least four different ways. I call shenanigans. It’s a meaningless crock-word.

via Twitter Web Client

@bronwen Yes, Facebook logo is obligatory when talking to other suits to show that you are hip and cool with teh internetz.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bronwen

@trib There’s a disconnect: first half of audience doesn’t get that all this can happen without it being about “making money”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib There’s a real divide in the room. “Media” types talking about extracting money in various ways, and people who just DO it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@jedwhite Fear now, I will be giving grief IRL once we get past me network problems and into discussions… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jedwhite

“Why should I bother with Web 3 or Web 4? It’s so I can get really into Web 2 now. You won’t understand it until you’re doing it.”

via Twitter Web Client

I start typing quotes, I start wondering WTF I am typing. We will have the Internet in the future. I have been told.

via Twitter Web Client

“The thing is not the thing any more, whether you’re talking about nanotechnology or experience. Self-explanatory.” Uhuh.

via Twitter Web Client

“Hotbeds of experience, emotion, connection and meaning.” “I am the interaction device.” I am wanting the tablets now kthxbye.

via Twitter Web Client

This “futurist” gets her info about Web 3.0 from the Sydney Morning Herald, and disagrees with it. Struggles to use computer.

via Twitter Web Client

The future might hold Rubik’s Cubes, apparently, and we’ll all be wrapped in ill-fitting bandages.
