@SnarkyPlatypus News! Quebec concerned that Paul McCartney will “bring back painful memories of our Conquest”. http://is.gd/VE5

@SnarkyPlatypus The song was John Paul Young’s “I Wanna Do It With You”, one of the highlights of his career.

Look, my day is continuing in a strange fashion, so I think it’s appropriate to share my emotions. http://is.gd/VBO

@trib That would be “cranky” as in “powered with volatile cheese and capable of immense speeds underwater”. Yes, Mr Dumpty… what you said.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Este is indeed a smart chap, I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations both on- and off-record. I shall buy him that beer back soon.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Este is fine, I reckon. His response is appropriate. We did indeed chat as he describes. We’re just continuing our chat in public. ;)

A response to my Crikey rant yesterday: “Bloggers: the biggest whingers since journalists” http://is.gd/Vyz Jonathan Este from MEAA rocks!

via Twitter Web Client

@SilkCharm Going thru http://abc.net.au/mediaw… would find HUGE lists of journalistic upfuckness.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@SilkCharm I’ve never had the “I AM A BONAFIDE JOURNALIST” tattoo though, on any of my buttocks. “Producer”, yes…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@SilkCharm I think you mean “incidents” not “incidences”, but it’d be pedantic to point out “incidence” means the rate of occurrence.

I’m guessing that the latex-ckad nun in fishnets on Enmore Rd isn’t a registered pilgrim.

@ecoknowgrapher “Micropersuasion of the ontic”? Please, sir, we have the Pope in Sydney at the moment, don’t use that sort of language!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ecoknowgrapher

@ecoknowgrapher Ah! But authority is also based on trust. Of course *I* can be trusted to be authoritative! ;) The Fail Whale IS important!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ecoknowgrapher

RT @jayrosen_nyu: “Wikipedia is radical about authorship, conservative when it comes to authority.” Nice way of putting it.

@ApostrophePong “Closer to God, best for doing Tax Return”? But “Render unto Caesar”, surely? http://is.gd/Vry

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Doing two things in one morning seems excessive. I mean, I’ve ALREADY had a shower AND fed the cats.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@SilkCharm Did you see my latest bomb-throwing effort? http://is.gd/UuS [smirks] I am SO unemployable now. Again.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@trib Why didn’t someone TELL me that Fail Whale is gay? Quick! We’d better hold a dance party to raise money! [sigh] ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Hmmm… What’s more important in my morning? Writing the proposal for a $20k project which is already late? Trying to save the Fail Whale?

via Twitter Web Client

They’re as bad a journalists.

via Twitter Web Client

Wikipedia should just fucking record ALL knowledge and leave it to the historians to figure out what’s “important” later.

via Twitter Web Client

@BadTmy Well spotted! I don’t know Margaret Simons, but yes I’ll pass that on. An excuse to make contact! ;) I have read her book tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timehhh

Retweet @jayrosen_nyu: “When people talk about re-inventing journalism they almost never talk about re-drawing its ideology. Why? “

RT @PeterBlackQUT “A piece… on the privacy of IP addresses following the Viacom v Google decision is now online .” http://is.gd/Wx0

Fri plan: Potter thru the backlog of annoying tasks on my desk for the day, with a lunch break, then have a weekend until Monday.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein It wasn’t an article by @ChrisSaad, just a tweet this morning. So, by Wikipedia standards, it doesn’t exist.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@lewellyn Ah the interface just changed back. With instant Twitterfeedback, I hope they didn’t respond to sudden negativity… a load test?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@SnarkyPlatypus But ur ‘scope says “You’ve got enough energy to tackle a week’s worth of problems in one day - so get to it!” So get to it!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ChrisSaad Spot on re Twitter design. It’d be happy with a list of tweets, refreshed reliably. Maybe the design hides new AJAXey goodness.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ChrisSaad

@Seanabc Maybe all the Irish have come to see the Pope in Sydney. Or are working in telco call centres and “Irish” pubs here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to micropkr

OK, who just changed my universe. I want their names! I want their goddam names and I want their cards on my desk by sunset!

@kcarruthers “I turn away from twitter to watch final season of west wing & it’s all trannies & shoulder pads here.” So what’s the diff?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@Colgo I’ll ask Jonathan Este today whether I can republish his response, I’m sure he’ll say yes, but yeah will email you his snark back.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Colgo

Emerges. Friday yay. Potential Papal Inconvenience less yay, but then I hope to avoid the central city. Let’s see how we go…

via Twitter Web Client

And on that note… [exit]

@mpesce You can check the action replay at http://is.gd/VRb should there be any doubt… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce That tranny was ACTUALLY Pete Burns, as it happens. The original singer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@wolfcat Yes, @Nickhodge has much to be… hmmm… maybe I should just go to bed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@mpesce “Questions such as”, precisely.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@livnenna No, no Alexander Downer, but the one that I did an hour ago. It’s still a cause for concern.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to livkenney

@mpesce Yes, I just watched the entire thing. It… it leaves many questions unanswered. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

I have decided, after watching the program that I just did, that the world is a disturbing place.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett Glad you enjoyed, I’m watching back now. The chat may or may not scale, that’s the interesting experiment. ;)

Ep 6 of Stilgherrian Live Alpha in about 12 mins at http://stilgherrian.com/… … I think it’s all working this time! ;)
