Bill Henson is the bogeyman, it seems. A new “raft of changes” to NSW law recommended. http://is.gd/4Pgy (Why always a “raft”?)

@viveka You can report problem buses on 131500, punch thru to complaints, describe problem & give bus number. Depot manager will call you.

@undergroundres Only this week I thought about contacting old friends at Underground Resistance in Detroit. Your follow makes it easy, eh?

@jjprojects Of course, if Twitter really IS the Next Big Thing and lasts… well, yes, businesses should stake out their turf.

@PeterBlackQUT @kcarruthers You are both just trying to provoke me into uncharacteristic rudeness and I will not fall for your trickery.

@liubinskas I lived on a dairy farm for the first 11 years of my life and never, never orked a cow. How does one, erm, do it?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to liubinskas

@jjprojects … but that EXPECTING businesses to flock to the current flavour of the month bleeding-edgery is sheer geekish arrogance.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jjprojects

@jjprojects I’m not disputing that businesses responding to issued raised in social networks is good customer service…

Rescheduling planned work because je suis très fatigué and Sie alle werden in der Hölle verrotten. A nap did not help.

@SnarkyPlatypus I think @al3x would have definitely been ironic there. He’s some key chap at Twitter what makes this all work.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@dizzystuff Happy Birthday! Now, please put your pants back on, there’s a good boy.

Damn hay fever! With all this random genetic material in the air, Spring turns the whole world into Nature’s cum-rag. Then we breathe it.

@Alegrya The best place in Brisbane for breakfast is the airport, because it means you’ll shortly be leaving for somewhere else.

@nwjerseyliz Yes the only countries apart from the US which are not on metric are the success stories of Liberia and Myanmar/Burma.

@SnarkyPlatypus I hope that, erm, “corporate training video” has prepared you for Amsterdam.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@nwjerseyliz “Weather in the 70s/80s”? With flares and corduroy, then OTT hairstyles? Oh, DEGREES FAHRENHEIT! When WILL you people catch up?

@SnarkyPlatypus You should also check this Guardian feature “Sex Uncovered! The way we love now: Britain and sex in 2008” http://is.gd/4RE7

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Just for that, I am very tempted to add completely inappropriate tags to your images. http://is.gd/4Rm8

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus While you’ve been judging the rootability of your Contiki tourmates, I’ve been sorting out the labelling of your photos.

@Nickhodge I amso like the platypus’ self-portraits with his Ubuntu’d-up EEEPC, like this one at Changhi. http://is.gd/4RzT

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Reading @SnarkyPlatpypus means I encounter useful new verbs like “to outminge”. http://is.gd/4Rzp

via Twitter Web Client

Starting to explore @SnarkyPlatypus’ photos from his cheap-arsed European Tour, before even the first coffee, for my sins. http://is.gd/4Rm8

Emerges. I do not recall requesting a Monday at this point in time. Whose idea was THAT?

via Twitter Web Client

I hope I do not dream of that U-Boat again tonight, that was very annoying. Or if I do, that I have a better crew.

via Twitter Web Client

I must be tired. I am mistyping things and not noticing.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge We could start with Newingtn College, which would be a bonus for many reasons.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Maybe so they REALLY understand war, we could just shoot all students. Just the once. Then gas them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@PeterBlackQUT O\h is “Rove Live” still going? Is Channel Ten still going, for that matter? I thought they’d given up.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@jeffsonstein I’d never thought of Conrad Black as a neocon sex kitten before, but I am now. It’s a good thing this quilt isn’t transparent.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

“I believe it was Newt Gingrich who loved the term ‘sex kitten’, and forever etched it into my definitions of the Neocon.” So. Very. Wrong.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein BTW, how am I going in the US for Google searches for “neocon sex kitten”? http://is.gd/4PSS

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Yeah me as a Neo-con strategist! Still, one Crikey reader thought I was a stockbroker. http://is.gd/4PSF

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Well I COULD be “the KARL Rove of the Streaming Web”, but I’d have to change my style a bit. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@ApostrophePong You may well be interested in this art piece by @a_newman (when you are not playing shooty shooty games). http://is.gd/4POj

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@magia3e I don’t mind being called “the Rove of the Streaming Web”. http://is.gd/4PO2 Nice piece, and I’ll respond this week.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to magia3e

@a_newman Thanks for the thoughtful comment on my blog about the Bill Henson stuff. http://is.gd/4Prh Pondering how to reply. Much thought.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to anewmn

@SnarkyPlatypus When will we start seeing the photos from Stage 1 of your cheap-arsed journey?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Nickhodge Our kittehs are a jumpy gothgrrl hunter-cat and a big fat faggot lazy attention-slut slob-cat respectively.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Actually teh kittehs seem to want me to help them hunt frogs and skinks.

@CameronCollie No chance at all of a “Stilgherrian Live” tonight. I’m still massively fatigued (ill?) and need sleep. SL overhypes me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CameronCollie

@katska Exactly. The OFLC said the nudity in Henson’s work was “mild and justified”, PG. Only the mouth-frothers get heated over this stuff.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to katska

@ApostrophePong has just posted some photos from our Cowra Trip http://is.gd/4PwX Now I just have to edit my video!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@magia3e Interesting formula. Now I’ll have to think about how mine would work. Shall I just cop out and say it’d be the same? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to magia3e

RT @magia3e: follow = friends intersection + tweets that establish identity + other sources of identity + future benefit of interaction etc

@michaelmeloni … It’d take a whole bunch of law changes to turn PG material into M or MA or R, let alone into the banned world.

@stephenfry The “pic made up of o_O in blue against a field of brown” is Twiter’s default avatar for people who haven’t uploaded pics.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stephenfry

@michaelmeloni The proposed law removes the defence of “artistic purpose” in child porn cases. Henson’s work isn’t porn, said the OFLC…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

@SnarkyPlatypus Glad you’ve arrived in The Old Antipodes OK. Please does not wreck the UK while you’re there. Gin please kthxbai.

New blog post: “Just being nude doesn’t make it porn, you sickos!” http://is.gd/4Prh

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… that link to Crikey didn’t reveal my Henson comment. Odd.

via Twitter Web Client

Meanwhile my reaction to the Bill Henson “scandal” has already been published at Crikey. http://is.gd/3DO5 [scroll down]

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat Agreed, Anne Geddes’ http://is.gd/4PhQ work is truly disgusting. Turning children into objects like that is obscene.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@coliwilso Alas http://useqwitter.com confuses correlation with causation. An unfollow may not be about the immediately preceding tweet.

@spinopsys Can someone tell Mark Day we all have MORE and MORE DIFFERENT info than ever before? It’s only The Oz which is all same same.

via Twitter Web Client

@spinopsys Mark Days self-invalidates in his first sentence: “this era when… information [is] increasingly homogenised”. http://is.gd/4Shv

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk In a sentence, what was(were) the reason(s) you moved to Newcastle again?

Note to US Army: “Artemis” is code for “Mohammed”, “skink” for “semtex”, “tail” for “detonator”, “play with” for “deliver to US Embassy”.

via Twitter Web Client

And now Apollo stretches and decided that the skink is for him. He looks at it, waiting for it to DO something. He paws it aimlessly.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, Artemis! Another wriggly skink for me to play with, thank you! Where’s its tail? Ah, over there! Excellent.

@kcarruthers SOMETIMES PEOPLE EVEN SAY THAT THEY DO NOT LIKE WHAT THE PRIME MINISTER IS DOING THEY MUST BE STOPPED LIKE SRSLY TERRORISMS!

@kcarruthers And Reta ALWAYS has a question based on the “CIA World Factbook”! THIS IS SERIOUSLY SUSPICIOUS!

@kcarruthers Yes, Twitter is used by terrorists. http://bit.ly/4hWKLT @stub (“OMFG ‘UNDERGROUND BRIGADE!!!1!’) Pub Trivia is a cover.
