@jeffsonstein Bearing in mind that I haven’t been connected with universities in years, um, students at 0700-0800? Offering beer? Meth?

Fark! RT @Fush from a few days ago, Boston Dynamics’ awesome Big Dog robot. http://is.gd/5yD I. Am. Seriously. Impressed.

@SnarkyPlatypus Then girls got 10/10 on picture sheet, at final round they were 3 points ahead as top team. But we both lost all on last Q.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus It was girls vs boys, “Twitter Ladies of the Night” vs “I’m Colin and I’m a whale”… Top 2 teams at half time, boys 2 up…

@SnarkyPlatypus Your trashy pop culture skillz were sorely missed last night. I hope you’re better soon.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Gawd, I can’t even swear properly this morning, I must be tired.

via Twitter Web Client

Thankfully the ABC isn’t calling this poor blood whale “Colin”. It’s got enough to cope with, people. http://is.gd/1MuR

@DenubisX @KevinDV The trick to understanding social media is to USE it to do social things, otherwise it seems trivial if not pointless.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DenubisX

RT @textism: “In my experience, Wal-mart smells like the greasy folds of the greeter’s bitch tits, plus fried dough.” Poetry… :)

via Twitter Web Client

@neerav Alas, we came equal bottom with many others on 0 points because we bet all on the last question, and were teh FAIL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

Emerges. “I’m Colin, and I’m a whale.” My last drink was 6 days ago. Suck boats, humans!

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway, I’m turning off the Internet and clearing my mind for @stub Pub Trivia. One doesn’t cheat at such things…

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Exactly. Which is why they should call the whale “Whiskas”. Or “Megasashimi”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Sorry, who decided this random baby whale was called “Colin”? FFS!

via Twitter Web Client

@rogerchristie An online game could be quite cool, yes. We’ll have to figure out the protocol for that eh?

I’ve arrived at the Marlborough, and will do my best to reserve seats. It’ll start filling heavily from 7pm, I’m told.

Never trust a fat pharmacist.

Move! Or I’ll fucking kick you to death! Bloody commuters…

@stub Pub Trivia tonight. Marlborough Hotel, King St, Newtown. 6.30pm+ for 8pm Game On. I’ll be there from 6.15pm.

via Cloudhopper in reply to stubbbbbb

Mosman meeting done. Heading to Newtown to gird my loins for @stub Pub Trivia. Shameless plug follows shortly.

via Cloudhopper

@kcarruthers I will have to send you some of my childhood photos then. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@tristankenney Is that so you can attract foot-fetishist lesbians?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tristankenney

@SnarkyPlatypus You’re meant to be ill. Go to bed and stay warm and stop causing me grief.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Anyway, off to 1400 meeting which was shifted to 1430. Mosman, ahoy!

via Twitter Web Client

@DallasClark Well if recruiters “cant be bothered” they should be sacked. It’s their JOB to read resumes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DallasClark

@Entregreeneur I’ve had no contact with Nick Xenophon since school.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Entregreeneur

@jodiem “Bloody recruiter wants me to do a resume specific for my VBA skills - WTF???” Well, got a highlighter pen? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

@stokely [smirks] I was in the same Venturer Scout patrol as Senator Nick Xenophon! He had no Policy Goats then, though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stokely

Yes, Gentle Twitterverse, imagine ME at this school: http://www.pac.edu.au I note they have a token Asian these days.

via Twitter Web Client

@SilkCharm My role in the world was to lob into Prince Alfred College and… well… be myself. ;) They’re probably still recovering.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@lewellyn I’ll leave you to navigate that whole thread about nuns and teenage schoolgirls with no underwear by yourself, I think.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@ApostrophePong Still, nice that Carmel Tebbutt got the candidate to phone me personally. ;) Mentioning Crikey probably made a difference.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@StephenEdgar True, I guess me having a globally unique name helps. Then again, I don’t pick up work through random searches.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to netweb

@SilkCharm A friend who went to Wilderness told me the nuns did underwear inspections to make sure they were plain white or brown knickers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@SilkCharm Oh, I’m going to Mosman! I’lI pass the underwear inspection as we cross The Bridge. Just like Wilderness School in Adelaide.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@trib Seeing the best of @ApostrophePong’s “The Dump” series is interesting. Us folks from ADE and BKK just don’t dump stuff in the street.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@SilkCharm I know the problem [oink]. I have a shirt with a collar on right now, and socks, ‘cos I’m going to a client in Mosman shortly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@livnenna Radio National obviously still has the budget to buy this morning’s newspapers. ;) http://tinyurl.com/669bh5

@ApostrophePong The electoral rolls have already closed for NSW local govt elections on 13 Sept. (The ALP candidate just phoned to tell me.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@SilkCharm Trying to make a solo freelancer look like “a big brand” consultancy firm is like dressing a pig in a suit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@trib @garthk Ah! is.gd doesn’t map the part of the URL after the #… try http://tinyurl.com/6ouwqx for the photo.

@Maab You are using the right lingo. :) MiroTV is a generic video download client, can talk to torrents and podcast/vodcast sites alike.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Maab

Remembering how much I “like” this photo, even though I find it… a bit disturbing. http://is.gd/1La2 What is the back story, I wonder?

via Twitter Web Client

@Maab Can’t figure out torrents? Just use MiroTV from http://www.getmiro.com/ Makes it all trivial: search, press “download”, leave it run.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Maab

@vealmince BTW, was that that the A/V facilities can be a bit flaky, or Kuletos can be a bit flaky? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vealmince

@vealmince Yeah A/V is the key, unless one gets into hiring it for the night… and that adds its own dramas.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vealmince

I’m mobile! Enmore Rd, King St, lunch at Kelly’s On King, then to Mosman for 1400 strategy meeting.

via Twitter Web Client

@stokely OK, Twitterverse! Sydney pubs with good room / space that could host a panel with <50 in audience? Suggestions please!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stokely

@stokely Sounds like the perfect free venue would be “upstairs at a pub” since they’d get a bar take.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stokely

@stokely What capacity venue are you after for Crikey events? Upmarketness on a scale of hovel to palace?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stokely

Just so everyone knows, I’ve just reclassified sour gummy bears as a health food.

via Twitter Web Client

@einspruch Ah RockWiz eh? Well, not so much the question, but when the answer was Mao’s Little Red Book, I got a bonus point for owning it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to einspruch

@4fthawaiian The @stub Pub Trivia was a good night, look back in my stream for more. Notable that other attendees have not emerged yet. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 4fthawaiian

@einspruch It’s not about “best question” in pub trivia, I think. It’s about the flow of mutual entertainment during the night.

RT @elliottng: China Digital Times: Netizens use “Surrender Liu” (刘降 vs 翔) to avoid censorship of negative Liu Xiang info. http://is.gd/1MzX

I’m RTing @jayrosen_nyu ‘cos his original post, 10 months old, is still an awesome compendium of how to do good online news sites.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @jayrosen_nyu: @xarker & I are doing a revision & enlargement of my original “plot these points on your map of change” http://is.gd/1p7r

@SnarkyPlatypus “Bisolvon Chesty Forte” sounds like a hunky Latvian leather-porn star.

Thu plan: Gently prod all of the projects so they move forward in an orderly fashion, at one of my desks; evening undecided.
