@kcarruthers I suspect, btw, that it’s bit much to use Twitter Search to prove an argument like that.

RT @kcarruthers: “WTF is a gamelan and why does anyone think it is good to listen to?” Agreed.

I just realised. TV websites are inherently broken. I see a promo, click on it - then it tells me I have to wait for it to be b’cast on TV.

I wish people would put a bit of context into their Facebook friend requests, particularly when their photos and profiles are lousy.

@cameronreilly So what you’re saying is that Renee Geyer is the new Chef in South Park?

Sometimes, no TV reception is frustrating. Why can’t ABC programs go online when they START, not end? Then I can share the experience.

@misswired If I had a heliotron magnetic field containment device I’d wear a turtleneck, make you call me Mr Scorpio and demand a ransom.

@JonoH 2 x Live a week? LOL! When I can sort the balance of billable hours for clients, maybe. Haven’t really thought, to tell the truth.

@garthk How did you decide that “Long Life 3 Years” was a “label” rather than, say, an observation? 3 years IS a long life for a lightbulb.

@willhughes @pixel8ted Hmmm… JWH was hit hard simply be being defeated. His bubble was burst. I didn’t feel the need to kick him as well.

@pixel8ted “Sad that we didn’t get to see him cry”? Hmmm… Schadenfreude, m’dear?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pixel8ted

@Fush True, JWH was very good at not-knowing things. But that election night concession speech was, I think, finally, sincere.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fush

@bck That’s why even though I was hardly a fan of former PM John Howard, he gets 100 points for taking on the blame for the election defeat.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bck

@bck Indeed. Though for me the captain not taking on the responsibility for the bad as well as the good shows a certain lack of ethics…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bck

@bck True, I should read more carefully. Steve admits APPLE made a mistake, not himself. Now what do they say about captains and ships…?

@andrewdotnich “Tsunamarama” is from Summer Heights High, Mr G’s fundraiser concert for tsunami victims featuring the music of Bananarama.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@SnarkyPlatypus Speaking of Tsunamarama, was unimpressed that Summer Heights High DVD promo used skywriting. It’s like graf-tagging heaven.

@andrewdotnich You’re quite right, of course. Software is made from mathematics, and fnord mathematics can’t break gödel.

@SnarkyPlatypus I think you SHOULD go there. I think you should pay special attention to my tweets because they’re very, very informative.

Some time I do want to do some visualisations showing how complex software is. Need to find a good animator to work with.

@steven_noble I suspect the software industry has done too good a job of hiding the complexity, or selling the “it’s all simple” line.
