@jodiem Gordon Ramsay? Gee, you have to wonder when the kitchen menials have become celebrities. Those below stairs should know their place.

@earleyedition “Does only MSM fear the legal conseqs?” For sure. Blogs/comments say stuff I’d NEVER say on radio for fear of being sued.

@mediahunter Google reveals two Crikey mentions of Bill Caralis, and one of them is in the comments. http://is.gd/163u Not really my patch.

@SnarkyPlatypus says his parents took him to see “The Bodyguard” as a child. Much is explained.

@SnarkyPlatypus & I about to do something involving barramundi, prawns & gin at The Courthouse Hotel, Newtown.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

After a down and somewhat unproductive Monday, let’s see if gym and dinner with @SnarkyPlatypus can help. Attention partial.

@trib You should thank @jayrosen_nyu for being the bloke making sense. But yes, very good points made.

All this stuff about journalism lately, one might think I actually gave a toss about it.

via Twitter Web Client

@earleyedition Possible answer: radio was live but ephemeral (forgotten). Print was slow but permanent. “New media” is both simultaneously.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to earleyedition

@earleyedition Coming from a live radio background, decisions as to what’s in/out happens at the lowest level all the time. Sky not fall in.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to earleyedition

@earleyedition I don’t quite understand the fear that (partic) print / ex-print has with comments. It’s all about “control”…

@StuartL I guess a blogging journalist is one who both fact-checks and doesn’t, both is objective and not, all at the same time.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

http://journalism.me is an aggregation of journalists who blog (mostly) about journalism. Just in case you’re not sick of it yet… ;)

@markhjones True, journalists if employees are over-worked. Are their employers interested in better journalism? Or just “more” journalism?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to markhjones

@markhjones Agreed, contributors need to know their efforts are appreciated, or journos will just be seen a parasites on the social network.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to markhjones

@StuartL So the strategy is to shout “chicken, chicken, chicken” and give them the choice: comply for a glass of wine or the mincer? ;)

@JasonBarnett @jayrosen_nyu Once again, my colourful use of language causes trans-Pacific confusion. :)

Now why don’t Australia’s beef or lamb TV commercials look like THIS? http://is.gd/15QI

I am so excited that my sense of tense and number has abandoned me. ;)

If you know a journalists, tie them to a chair and FORCE them to watch it TWICE before they get any beer ever again. http://is.gd/WXW

Retweet @jayrosen_nyu: “Thousands of People on a Single Story.” How to add social networks to beat reporting. http://is.gd/WXW 5-min video.

@einspruch Indeed, a telco warning is the difference between a feel-good “Hey thanks for the heads-up” and the feel-bad nasty surprise.

@einspruch @videoezy Hi, new (to me) folks. Hope you’re having a better Monday than I am.

@jeffsonstein iPhones have fresh batteries now. What about in 9mo? I don’t want to hack devices for them to work. I want to USE them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@decryption Oh over-cap is where the best profits lie, sure. Vodafone’s choice is $400 & lost customer today, or heavy data user to come.

Sen Conroy releases report on ISP-level internet filters. http://is.gd/15Ib 2.8MB PDF Even most successful only blocks 97% in closed test.

via Twitter Web Client

@decryption If I’m going to be charged 5x usual amount I expect a warning. I’m not on contract, so can switch providers today if unhappy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to decryption

@Alex_Manchester No, not iPhone. I have no urge to buy a device which will run out of battery half-way thru day and can’t be used as modem.

@wolfcat Vodafone’s $79 business plan includes internet as time-based $1/5mins inside $550 funny money cap. There was more Internet usage.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

Vodafone seem to think I’ll pay them $476.91 rather than $79 this month for going over cap. No warning received. I don’t think so…

@ssharwood Well yes, people can do this price-compare thing without no steeeenking government. Time to pimp @mpesce again. http://is.gd/15Gk

@philipsim @markhjones says to follow you, so I shall. “Worth following for all things web2, digital media, journalism etc” is a hell rap!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to philipsim

Settling in to write, attention given to what’s on my desk.

via Twitter Web Client

Tues plan: Write about Internet filtering for Crikey.com.au; desk work as health permits; @ApostrophePong’s leave-work dinner party thing.

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb Thanks. Those 3 articles were in response to specific news events so the focus was easy to shift. Still thinking about today’s.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@jeffsonstein That said, a couple dept workers have told me Sen Conroy is light years ahead of the muppets who’ve previously held the post.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein “Minister for Broadband, Communictions and the Digital Economy”? All pre-election gloss to make Rudd sound futuristic.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Yes, as author John Birmingham put it in his glorious rant, the government is not your babysitter. http://is.gd/16K1

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Try http://is.gd/16JE again, I got intermittent errors. It’s only the Minister for Internet’s website. Expect it to work? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

There! Maybe I should just send those tweets to Crikey and say, “My work here is done!” This is the Future of Journalism!

@jeffsonstein The government needs to be seen to be “doing something” to get his vote, all wrapped in “we must protect the children”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Problem is, it’s ALL political. A sop to the “Family First” Senator who along with an independent hold the balance of power.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein I’ll have to think of a new way to explain why filters still won’t work. http://is.gd/16It http://is.gd/16IB http://is.gd/16II

Emerges. Cold. Angry. In pain. This is not going to be the best morning to write about Internet censorship.

@andrewbarnett Same for me. Unique name in a unique domain, yet http://cuil.com doesn’t have my site in the first 10 pages of results. FAIL.
