@wolfcat I’d love to see judge’s reasoning. How is claiming you said you have “the best job in the world defamatory”? http://is.gd/WJ4

@jg_rat I think the challenges of inventing the new media really does sort the sheep from the goats, and I mean that non-disparagingly.

@Nickhodge I know sometimes my frustration with non-geeks comes from the lack of curiosity and exploration, fear of unknown instead of joy.

@Nickhodge Aren’t we ALL “working it out for ourselves”? We are, but there’s also that geeks are people who DO “work stuff out”.

@shanegold Have you got linkage for reactions to @popedownunder? I think it’s rather fun.

@Nickhodge But are the old media types too proud to ask for help? As we too cuntful to give it?

@Nickhodge Works better in German? “Ein Platz zur Verf├╝gung. Ein Warteschlange. Ein beheben.” ;) But yes, fair point, where to start…

@julesoir Yes bloggers are typists too! And here’s a thought: Pervasive audio and video tools will dramatically reduce use of written comms.

@duncanriley Thank you again for ripping apart Mr Este’s “facts”, which was indeed a sweet, sweet irony. He’s a nice chap tho.

@Nickhodge Love the term “Analog Refugees”, but do I need to build them a bridge? Bridgemaking materials & instructions free for all online!

To lump all users of blogs together as “bloggers” is like lumping journos with historians, novelists, scientists and calling them “typists”.

@DamianM Thanks, yes, I’m happy with that analogy, it emerged yesterday while tweeting with @bronwen. I’ll have to give it more profile.

Actually I’ll get more hits if I repeat Este’s headline. “Bloggers: the biggest whingers since journalists.” http://is.gd/WGZ

The full response to my rant about journalists by the journos’ own “union thug” Jonathan Este. http://is.gd/WGZ He makes some good points.

@smperris Safe for work? Hmmm… There are no pictures, just a list of words. Some words relate to sex and porn.

@lewellyn It’s an 800-word post with 30+ lengthy comments attached. Your solution: more RAM.

Retweet @hotdogsladies: “Green room at The Independent smells like beer farts and Hepatitis C.” My world is definitely NOT improved.

via Twitter Web Client

The first comment on my latest blog post has introduced me to “anal fruitshakes”. http://is.gd/WCV I’m not sure that my world is improved.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewdotnich Ah well, there’s quite a lot of cruft in life, I can cope. ;) I’m hoping Jonathan Este will let me republish his response.

Just finished responding to more comments on my massive journalism rant. http://is.gd/UuS

@BadTmy Yes, working for a “news organisation” no more makes you a “journalist” than sitting in a hen house makes you a chicken.
