@neerav @garthk Thanks for both articles, outside scope of immediate needs but will add them to the pot for later.

@deanlk I’d heard of the Naomi Klein Great Firewall piece but not read it. http://tinyurl.com/66r9z6 Ta. May link, but only have 400 words.

Writing about the Great Firewall of China. Fascinating stuff. Check this research on how it works: http://is.gd/19Gd

@andrewdotnich I am disturbed by your choices of what you do and don’t retweet from my world. ;)

@SnarkyPlatypus AFAIK, Ustream chats are not archived. And I keep forgetting to copy and save them before closing the broadcast window. :(

@limburger2001 The recorded Stilgherrian Live Akpha episode 7 is at http://is.gd/1ad4 for your post-live enjoyment. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@Entregreeneur Sorry, I can’t do Ustream support while actually doing the program. Sometimes restarting browser helps.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Entregreeneur

@katska Episode 7 of Stilgherrian Live Alpha is then, in just over 5 mins… but I will be in the Ustream chat thingo.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to katska

12 minutes to air time at http://stilgherrian/com/… … will start standby feed shortly.

via Twitter Web Client

Half an hour until the program. I have almost assembled all of the important elements… Mwuahahahahaha!

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 “Poke you with a stick”? NOW we’re talking! That and the music. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@mpesce Ah I’ll be right, I have some things to talk about. And couple of songs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@Entregreeneur Andrew Bolt? Snarkiness, yes, but I want to keep my dinner down.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Entregreeneur

Hmmm… I don’t feel ANYWHERE near bitter enough to do a Stilgherrian Live Alpha in under two hours. Maybe I should’ve watched some TV.

@zhasper Don’t pick on the poor folks at News Corp, the “internents” can be challenging.

Town Hall station continues to be overcrowded and dangerous. Testimony to a decade of what I suspect is deep corruption.

Tim Dunlop at Blogocracy picks up the Conroy Internet Porn Filter story. http://tinyurl.com/66oqtv Interesting comment stream.

@joshsharp Start as you intend to proceed. Only “too small” suppliers fall for easy haggling tactics, I reckon. Took me ages to learn that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to joshsharp

@joshsharp “Dubious Big Client” is haggling. If you have properly estimated & costed project, do not cave in. Plenty of work out there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to joshsharp

OK, Darlinghurst appointment now officially a write-off. Will have now start wending way CBDwards to collect some things before homeward.

@SilkCharm Does your Internet not have “search”? :P Under Accessories / System Tools, probably. Your fault for using Windows. ;)

@ApostrophePong Pojaman Shinawatra and Pauline Hanson in the same jail together…? Sick puppy…

@mpesce That procedure looks easier than, oh, creating a VPN using PPP over SSH, a few shell scripts and route commands. ;) Ah, memories…

@neerav Do ANY of the Australian carriers have Visual Voicemail on the iPhone though? (And thanks for comment re Virgin & Optus plans.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@mpesce The lack of being a modem, and suspected poor battery life with a non-swappable battery, are my key doubts re iPhone for my needs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Turning the iPhone 3G into a 3G modem, either via Bluetooth or WiFi. How painful? Does the recipe work?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Pojaman Shinawatra, wife of former Thai PM, and 2 family members sentenced 3 years jail for tax evasion. http://tinyurl.com/6lezvw

@DCouch There is a nice irony in my article about China’s firewall being behind Crikey’s paywall. Will do a non-Crikey version tomorrow.

@SnarkyPlatypus My feral goats are none of your concern, young man. Vive le poisson rouge sauvages!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce What is this “mobile” of which you speak? Is it like that little black buttplug labelled “Nokia” that is on the internetz now?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Me in Crikey today: “The Great Firewall of China: how it works, how to bypass it.” http://tinyurl.com/6jmeo5 Is it behind the paywall?

Waiting at an office in Darlinghurst for a cable guy to quote on a data cabling job. Did I get the time wrong? Did he?

via Twitter Web Client

Departing for 1400 client-site meeting in Darlinghurst. 1500 CBD to collect some things. 1600 home again for deskwork etc. Unless waylaid…

Imagine a filing cabinet that’s been turned inside out and ravaged by feral goats. That’s my desk right now. And it’ll have to wait.

@jdub @stokely The CMS could well deliver the web pages just fine, but users will complain they can’t see it ‘cos their computers are wrong.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@jdub @stokely The problem, as always, is Windows. Even if CMS works, a default English windows installation doesn’t install Chinese fonts.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

Anyway, Crikey article done, apart from poor @stokely trying to get my Chinese characters to work in their CMS. Prep for Darlinghurst time!

via Twitter Web Client

@earleyedition Actually, yes, the whole mobile internet needs to go into the RSF dissidents’ handbook. And Twitter. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to earleyedition

@wembley Also, to avoid the flood if someone’s tweeting a conference, http://twittersnooze.com can turn them off the a few hours.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wmbley

@wembley Thanks for the compliment. To cope with Twitter overload, just let the river flow. Past is past. Don’t try to drink everything. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wmbley

@earleyedition I haven’t looked inside RSF handbook, but techniques would be much the same as 2005. Just diff sources for current proxies?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to earleyedition

@dpn It’s usually a fair assumption that I’m complaining about SOMETHING… ;) [gone]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dpn

Anyway, I’m at the Mosman client’s office and will now go dark as I destroy their village to save it. Erm, their network I mean.

via Twitter Web Client

@earleyedition How can news sites build audience? Well, journalists if any good will have audience already, must market that in new media.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to earleyedition

Everybody is part of the community. But what role(s) do they choose? Can they create new roles?

via Twitter Web Client

@dpn Not complaining, just observing the forces in play. Exploring how to explain / change.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dpn

@earleyedition Re fan sites, they need core critical mass. Message has to resonate with enough to make that possible. Then luck?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to earleyedition

@earleyedition journalism’s myth of objectivity means they think they’re separate from “the people” of course…

@earleyedition @jayrosen_nyu Is it JOURNALISM’s job to “excite people into community”? Or someone else’s?

@andrewbarnett @mpesce There’s also a Norwegian study which showed CCTV operators tracked people who “different” rather than “suspicious”.
