@kdelarue “Idiosynchronicity” a neologism? Dunno I just copy’n’paste. I’m like Julie Bishop in that way. But I don’t do everything she does.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kdelarue

Meanwhile I’ve abandoned Concourse Bar (lingerie waitress happy-hour night erk!) and set up shop in a window of the Occidental on York St.

@fabicus My idiosynchronicity threshold is pretty high… ;) All hail Eris!

via Twitter Web Client

I might pop down to the Concourse Bar for an ale before heading home. Stand by.

Official “Cnut of the Week” nomination page now live at http://is.gd/5coD … usual rules. Who’s futilely resisting the tide of change?

via Twitter Web Client

@fabicus I do like the idea of nominating an entire airline, yes. Qantas is on the list. Will they make my idiosyncratic shortlist though?

“ACMA to pilot cybersafety program for primary and secondary level educators” http://is.gd/5cmL

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… “Stilgherrian Live” starts (allegedly) in under 4 hours and I’ve done zero prep. What else is new? “Cnut of the Week” nominations?

via Twitter Web Client

@furiousennui Nice to see you exploring the Twitterworld, my friend. It can be confusing. Beware of strange people.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to furiousennui

Sitting for a moment in that park opposite Wynyard Station, watching everyone rushing to… where? Why hurry? It’s a beautiful evening!

via Twitter Web Client

@stokely Didn’t realise that you’d, um, been downsized from Crikey. Good luck with whatever’s next!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stokely

Returning southerly from Mosman. Missions mostly accomplished.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Keane re “Conroy a fearless combatant in the war against free speech” http://is.gd/5blg and in Crikey’s email edition (story 13).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@coljac @trib @earleyedition Thanks to you and others for compliments re today’s Crikey piece. Bernard Keane’s is awesome also worth a read.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coljac

@jdub Heh! Well I pimp other Crikey stories hoping that if the audience goes up they might be able to afford to pay me more / more often.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

Is it poor form to vote up my own story in Crikey? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@stokely Plus I’m very happy to get “Conroy’s Rabbit-Proof Firewall” meme out there. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stokely

@stokely Well now that Bernard Keane DID cover the story, wow, did he out the boot in! It’s a fine piece!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stokely

@Tuna I agree that the story would get “more debate” if it wasn’t behind the paywall, but I don’t choose which stories Crikey opens up. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Tuna

I’ll also rant about this on “Stilgherrian Live” tonight at 9.30pm Sydney time. More about that later.

via Twitter Web Client

If you’re not a Crikey subscriber then you can do a 3-week free trial. I’ll do a public version of my piece tomorrow.

@awrd Thanks to you too for heads-up re “The Media Report” transcript. Missed you in the cacophony.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to awrd

At the Mosman client’s office, trying to figure out why the backups refuse to run. Maybe if I kick something it’ll help.

via Twitter Web Client

Oops! Audio AND transcript of ABC’s “The Media Report” on “The Great Firewall of Australia” now online. http://is.gd/5aYv Ta, @michaelmeloni

via Twitter Web Client

Wotnews (formerly Plugger) searches http://is.gd/53MA (censorship) and http://is.gd/53MK (filtering) yielding lots now!

via Twitter Web Client

Separate audio file of ABC’s “The Media Report” on “The Great Firewall of Australia” now online. http://is.gd/5aYv Transcript tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client

@fumpT In this instance I was referring to the “Australian Christian Lobby”. http://is.gd/50d5

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fumpT

Crikey article written! Theyll also have a LONG piece putting it right up Senator Conroy re Internet “filtering”. It’ll go live around 2pm.

via Twitter Web Client

@RozP Sorry, yes, quite correct. “Can haz new planit” might even be the correct form.

via Twitter Web Client

Fri plan: Darlinghurst almost all day, personal stuff first then a client’s office. 36C in Sydney? In October FFS! Can has new planet?

via Twitter Web Client

Another spray from me about Senator Conroy & censorship. http://is.gd/5gA1 Includes Mark Newton’s clear bullet-points for Conroy to address.

via Twitter Web Client

@funkycoda will annoy me again if I don’t pimp BarCampSydney on Sunday 15 November. http://barcampsydney.org There ya go.

@michaelmeloni Thanks for calling in to “Stilgherrian Live” last night. Recorded version is at http://is.gd/5dtC

Emerges. Not enough sleep, but appointments in Darlinghurst from 0930. Personal then client’s premises all day. Where’s them alkaloids?

via Twitter Web Client

Wow. Some time tomorrow I’ll clock 11,000 tweets. And 10,000 wasn’t so long ago. That really does mean it’s time for bed. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

“Stilgherrian Live” episode 32 is online for those who missed it at http://is.gd/5dtC though the LIVE experience is the way to go.

via Twitter Web Client

“Stilgherrian Live”is about to start at http://stilgherrian.com/… or over on Ustream.tv. The minions in the chat can advise further.

via Twitter Web Client

15 minutes until showtime! “Stilgherrian Live” will be at http://stilgherrian.com/… and the plinkies will start in 5 minutes or so.

via Twitter Web Client

Ok, heads down as I frantically prepare for the program and there is no fucking paper left for the printer shit.

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH Aircon! Why didn’t I think of that? FUCK THE GODDAM PLANET! I WANT COOL AIR, AND I WANT IT NOW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

Home. Less than an hour until “Stilgherrian Live” is due to start. I’ve done no prep, I haven’t eaten and… humidity? Sweating like a pig!

via Twitter Web Client

Oops. Serious upfuckage. Second battery has not been charged! 11 mins left. This one 14. Good thing I just departed Redfern, homeward bound.

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… 20 min of battery life left on battery A. I need a whole battery to do a “Stilgherrian Live so I think I might just head home.

via Twitter Web Client

ZDNet Aust: “ISP-level content filtering won’t work”. http://is.gd/5cCP Telstra points out “legal implications”. Conroy is so pwn3d!

via Twitter Web Client

Indeed, is there a spot in the CBD which will be open through to 2230 or 2300? With electricity, light and alcohol? And food. I need food.

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 … but maybe I can find a quiet spot with a power outlet to prepare? Suggestions anyway? Currently at Wynyard.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@limburger2001 I’m not sure whether I’ll broadcast from home or out. I haven’t prepared graphics etc, battery life fades, so maybe home…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

Just finding Mark Newton’s own article on all this at “Online Opinion”. Sweet. http://is.gd/5cFj

via Twitter Web Client

@erkpod You cannot fool me! The trains around the loopy bits only stop at 9.30pm, and then only bits of them. Or are they ALL cactus?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

I was thinking I really should prepare for “Stilgherrian Live” rather than drinking beer at a CBD pub, but then I realised…

via Twitter Web Client

Weird. Wotnews has my “Rabbit-Proof Firewall” Crikey article timestamped 10am. http://is.gd/5cCT But I only finished writing it at 1150.

via Twitter Web Client

@michaelmeloni The more I read that AWO article http://is.gd/5cw1 the more I wonder if they’ve thought this through at all.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

@monkeytypist OH NOES! THE WORLD IS ROUND AND PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT TIMES! HOW WILL WE COPE?!??!?!?!!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monkeytypist

@erkpod Yes do only try to watch if you’re waiting at Lidcombe. I’d prefer you NOT to be watching TV while driving a train. So would others.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@cait The AWO is certainly looking a strong contender for the Cnutish shortlist. Hypocrites that they are. Well, that article anyway.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

I might nominate the US government as “Cnut”. I mean, who the fuck is stupid enough to schedule an election on Melbourne Cup Day?

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk Yes, you did mention @matthewlandauer’s shock at seeing lingerie. He needs to get out more.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@erkpod “Is Stil Live and Confused mobile friendly for my N95?” No idea. Ustream.tv runs in Flash. Does an N95 do Flash?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

LOL! Ta @wolfcat! “Australian Women Online” (who?) want “rational debate” on censorship. http://is.gd/5cw1 Talk only rhetoric, comments off.
