@SnarkyPlatypus I would never use your Twitterstream or any other aspect of your persona for nefarious purposes. Landfill though, maybe.

@neerav Then you, sure, are a true gentleman.

@neerav “Backpacking” has descended from “travel world for enrichment” to “global party by indulgent drunken arseholes”. Hence, “gas them”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@4fthawaiian Oh agreed, for some people it IS only about traffic. That’s why @Jasoncalacanis posts about dogs. Hence http://snurl.com/2qcy5

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 4fthawaiian

I agree with whoever said this guy doesn’t “get” Twitter. http://tinyurl.com/5nzbel I have commented appropriately.

Full of sushi & sake at the Civic Hotel. Relaxed and comfortable. Alert but not alarmed. Asahi in ha@ApostrophePongPong arrives momentarily.

@andrewdotnich Greetings, sir! T’was a very great pleasure to meet you last week.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

All backpackers should be gassed. Slowly.

Uhoh French rugby fans.

@kcarruthers My lawyers are advising me not to answer that question. So are his.

@goaldeebug What do the duties of “birthday slave” involve? [mind boggles] Are there pics?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to goaldeebug

Gin is an adequate substitute for sake, for now.

via Cloudhopper

@SnarkyPlatypus & I at C Bar, Thainatown, leeching free WiFi while we wait for sushi bar to open.

via Cloudhopper in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Gym over. I am so fit now. Next stop: Haymarket for sushi & sake.

via Cloudhopper

If those 2 matcihng carr with “Life” stickers belong to a couple I will puke.

via Cloudhopper

OK, going mobile to meet @SnarkyPlatypus at the gym. All goes downhill from there. See previous tweet for itinerary.

via Twitter Web Client

@Mediamum Agreed re Seth Godin. Message of Purple Cow: “Be memorable”. Gosh, who’d ha’thought? Tell people obvious things, they lap it up.

@cait Yes, the “old media” were condescending and patronising about matters of which they only has 2nd hand knowledge. Rude.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

2. At I insulted a political staffer but we chatted after and agreed that by Canberra politics standards it was “kid gloves” stuff.

via Twitter Web Client

1. @Jasoncalacanis told me that if a non-Australian had called him a prick he’d have been offended, but I was OK. http://is.gd/HHk

via Twitter Web Client

@bronwen @jedwhite Exactly, without community context it an appear harsh. Two other examples of that recently…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bronwen

@TimNoonan Why hold back? If your heart is telling you to say it, say it. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TimNoonan

@jedwhite I don’t tweet anything that I wouldn’t say to people’s faces. And yeah, I swear. So do kids on buses. The world copes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jedwhite

@jedwhite Twitter can’t be “rude”. Twitter is a bunch of computers. PEOPLE can be rude IN/ON Twitter. But they meant me, yeah?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jedwhite

On more coffee before heading off to the gym, I think. Can wrap up my snarky morning.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein I’ll try to find time tomorrow to document the evolution of Fail Whale linguistically. Nice and serious for them. [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Maybe someone else can deal with that Fail Whale stuff while I’m away? I can’t run the entire Internet you know!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Sat plan: Leave shortly for gym with @SnarkyPlatypus, thence sushi/sake in Haymarket, thence C Bar (free WiFi) thence… Brownian motion. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Fail Whale’s Wikipedia page has been tagged for “multiple issues”. Needs a non-FW friend to re-write it, I assume? http://is.gd/HDd

via Twitter Web Client

@matthewdaniels @jjprojects The best Summize.com search to find ONLY all material about/to you is “username -from:username”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 000HYEAH

I’m imagining that Fail Whale Pale Ale would go well with sushi.

via Twitter Web Client

@NathanaelB I just used you as an example on Wikipedia. ;) See “History” section at http://is.gd/HDd

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

Thinking my new business cards should just be my name, Stilgherrian, then “I’m on the Internet”.

via Twitter Web Client

@adampurcell It’s SAAS, not self-hosted, but I find Basecamp really fits my work style for managing client projects. http://basecampehq.com

via Twitter Web Client in reply to adampurcell

We love Fail Whale most when he is not seen. I see a TVC coming together. “Drink FWPA and your worries disappear.”

via Twitter Web Client

BTW, I see that the request for rapid deletion has been removed from Fail Whale’s Wikipedia page http://is.gd/HDd Now where’s mine…?

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Yes, you napped briefly and missed the creation of Fail Whale Pale Ale and a global beer tasting day in Sept. http://is.gd/HDd

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@dizzystuff Just use Summize to search for “dizzystuff -from:dizzystuff” and it’ll work just fine. Until we all overload Summize, of course.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@jeffsonstein @mpesce Do we know someone with data viz skills who could create an animation of that?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein @mpesce @SilkCharm Two kinds of neural links in global hive-mind: @replies to friends and via summize.com etc.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein @mpesce @SilkCharm This thing is a fine example of meme-spreading and community-building. And so fast!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein I think we need to set up a Ning account or something for Fail whale and supporters. This is growing nicely.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Perhaps you’ll like the opposing team supporters in http://is.gd/HF3 .. there’s some fine TVCs for beer here in Aust.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@duncanriley I guess like so many things advertised on teh internetz, it’s vapourware. Still, I just want some beer with our own labels. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to duncanriley

@agibson And that “collaboration at a distance” is thru both space and time, though the “time” aspect can mean “hyperfast, globally”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to agibson

@agibson MUST get them to stop thinking about tech & asking “How can it be used?” It’s just collaboration; now they can do it at a distance.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to agibson

I actually remembered my dream from last night, but WTF does it mean? http://is.gd/I1D Interpretations please!

via Twitter Web Client

@nwjerseyliz Now, of course, we’ll both be over-concerned about misinterpretation. Well, I certainly will, until my bitterness returns.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

5% of Australians over 15yo victims of fraud, majority (77%) credit card / bank fraud. ABS stats (PDF file) http://tinyurl.com/4p4wfc

@nwjerseyliz Methinks you need to recalibrate your irony detector. ;) Plz lower threshold on high-pass filter kthxbye.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

Dilemma. Desire: Write about Twitter and Fail Whale etc. Need: shopping, end of financial year bookkeeping. Resolution? More caffeine.

via Twitter Web Client

@nwjerseyliz As I’ve said many times before, in the words of that great philosopher H J Simpson, “Sleep is for the weak”. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@SnarkyPlatypus We are channelling each other a little too closely at the moment plz make it stop kthxbye.

@Akula In my experience with small businesses, only a minority of users know that a browser home page CAN be changed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Akula

RT @Akula: “I feel like the entire MSN business was based on the premise that Windows users are too stupid to change their homepage.” Uhuh.

@jeffsonstein I have just emailed you a KML file with the location of our bedroom, from which we are currently tweeting. Silly technology.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Where’s your office? @ApostrophePong and I are just looking at the RIT campus in Google Earth Street View.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

“Clup”? I have become a New Zealander!

Oops I meant this clup. http://is.gd/HQ5 Brendan Nelson is indeed a cockatoo.

@jeffsonstein You can get a live feed from http://www.aph.gov.au … though parliament is in winter recess until August.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Now that @SnarkyPlatypus is in the shower I can say, yes, Aust parliament Question Time is as fun as the UK. http://is.gd/Hkm

@genrobey Hi! Since you edit plugger.com.au (fine site!) you might want to follow @mpesce and @bronwen and if I think of others I’ll say so.
