@bengrubb Tried both safari and Firefox with Ustream, I think it’s more a filtering issue with the WiFi at this bar. Will try again now.

Oops! People thought that ‘cos I had a laptop that I was the guy running the poker night at this bar.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, you did indeed mis-read that sentence. [smirks] But hey there’s a limit to what I can do from 1000km away.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

THIS IS THE NEW MEDIA! I’m at a pub in Sydney, what I say comes out on stage in Melbourne. Deal with that, AFR!

via Twitter Web Client

@jedwhite Man, if I had my Ustream uplink working… ;) Oh well, I’ll be your bitch for PubCamp 2, trust me!

@kcarruthers Richard Walsh lies! Charge-for-content only came with industrial revolution. Charge was for repro & distro. Slap hcamp

@jedwhite Looks like @RichardWalsh is learning from … and now he needs to be on Twitter so he can respond to what I just said. ;)

@kcarruthers @Nickhodge My first bf was a sometime rally driver, I was navigator, in a Mini, on LSD. Nothing scares me about this road trip.

@cait “Debate is one-way. Live feed has been cut.” Welcome to Old media. We talk at you, you MAY get a chance for edited response.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

I have just started realising the implication of me and @Nickhodge being in a small car-pod thing for ~3 hours tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client

@bronwen Heh! Exactly WHAT part of me did you quote in your debate?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bronwen

You know, TimNoonan is now a “trending topic” at Summize.com… LOL!

via Twitter Web Client

Can not haz Ustream from pub Wifi. :( Possibly good for everyone.

via Twitter Web Client

Main prob old media has at : separating content & distribution systems. Profits from distro paid for content, that cost now ~zero.

via Twitter Web Client

Thank the gods, @duncanriley is at … since I’m not there we need some quality snark. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Poo. Having trouble getting all of Ustream running from the pub. For ’s sake that may be a Good Thing. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Does anyone not on Twitter at understand that “the blog people” is not some homogeneous lump of non-journalists?

via Twitter Web Client

@benbarren Plz tell AFR Mag editor I’m in her internetz watchin’ her audience’s tweets, and will interject just like in Sydney. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to benbarren

I’m tempted to fire up my camera here at the pub and say “Well I am ready to discuss live on teh internets, where are you?” ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@gusworld Cost of video hosting? It’s free! Any number of providers. Oh, you does not want their ads? Tough. Pay. What is aim? $?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gusworld

@wolfcat Interesting that you’re spotting the same divide in as I saw in Sydney. But will the “olds” stay around to discuss? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

What? Melbourne is coping without my helpful suggestions? Bah! I have failed to be sufficiently indispensable!

via Twitter Web Client

Making use of said delightful convenience in the Sports Bar, Aurora Hotel, Elizabeth St, Surry Hills. Can haz company? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Coopers Pale Ale and WiFi are available at Aurora Hotel, Surry Hills, as it happens. What a delightful convenience.

via Twitter Web Client

Finished at Surry Hills, can haz beer? WiFi?

via Cloudhopper

@Nickhodge A @SnarkyPlatypus CAN kill you with his barbs. And his cocktails.

@mpesce Your big tough NY lawyers can sue me if I can use my normal polite language to tell them what they might choose to do instead. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@trib If you want something that REALLY blows goats, talk to @SnarkyPlatypus. ;) But agreed re MYOB. Performs crap over LANs in 2008: FAIL!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@jedwhite OK, I decided to make clients happy/happier rather than rant at Melbourne attendees via teh internetz. So sue me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jedwhite

@jeamland If your accountant can only use certain brands, sack them. ;) You’d sack a carpenter if he could only use one brand of nails.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@trib Re accountant, Sassu is online. Saasu gives your accountant a free login to your data, doesn’t count against you user numbers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@marclehmann If that’s not worth at least a solid double gin and tonic, I don’t know what is. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

But, having just spent a day getting a client’s MYOB working on a new LAN, I’d NEVER go back to MYOB. Backward-looking tech. For my needs.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland I am EXTREMELY happy with Saasu. Well structured, works well for me. Dunno your specific needs of course. ;) Ain’t looked at API.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@trib I imported all my data from MYOB AccountEdge to Saasu without any problems. Took under an hour following their procedure. YMMV.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@mr_gadget Man, if you think THAT’S angry then you haven’t been watching me closely of late. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_gadget

Dear MYOB, last year I moved to Saasu because you kept spamming me. I told you this. Fools, you didn’t respond. Again: FOAD!

via Twitter Web Client

Now REALLY head down and concentrating on the big pile of tasks to my left. [Points.] See? Big!

via Twitter Web Client

@sboiling Oh I’m not actually on the panels. I think Microsoft is expecting me to take care of the heckling. All is unclear.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sboiling

Head down. Concentrating on getting everything sorted out before Canberra.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein LOL! Altho I did employ @SnarkyPlatypus for a while, it wasn’t at same time as Off Mgr. She moved house, travel was too far.

@trib Actually, I’ve thought of sharing a PA with similar freelancers, yes. I miss my 15h/week office manager who resigned at Christmas.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@jeffsonstein Is that covered by Aust Govt’s New Apprenticeships Scheme? Salary subsidies FTW! “Her name is Rio and she dances in the sand!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Oh noes! Thanks to @SnarkyPlatypus I now have Duran Duran’s “Rio” in my head. http://is.gd/Ef1

I think I need a personal assistant. One who understands IT terms, the Internet, the media and psychosis.

via Twitter Web Client

@artywah I can spin it either way. “I’m eating salad”, or “I’m eating something in the fridge which smells like old socks”. Blue cheese FTW!

via Twitter Web Client

Home. Humiliated. Totally pwned by stand-up comedians. In 15 hours I head to Canberra to face the reality of 21st Century politics. Humbled.

The comedians on stage at The Sly Fox are 300% more bitter & disturbed than I am.

via Cloudhopper

Fuck! The Presets playing Enmore Theatre! Why was I not told? 30% of crowd ultra-fuckable, if 19yo.

via Cloudhopper

Oportos really does have a low grade of clientele. Burn them. Burn them all.

via Cloudhopper

Arr Newtown. With phone battery low, Twitter best way to advise all interested parties.

via Cloudhopper

Poker begins at the Aurora. I’ll leave them to it. The Sly Fox beckons, I am told. Kthxbai. AFK.

via Twitter Web Client

Watching the poker night guy sign everyone into the inter-pub poker registration system. This is seriously sorted! And full of Koreans.
