@Tuna The trick is to use existing structures, not try to create yet another lobbying organisation from scratch.

@Nickhodge @Tuna Censorship is political? Gosh, who knew?

RT @mediajorge: twitter trumps mainstream media… not finding much on shakir stewart passing… strange, sad news…

via Twitter Web Client

Even as Bush righwingers smell defeat, they’re allying with US law enforcement agencies to censor & control the internet. http://is.gd/5v6Q

@Nickhodge Thank you, you’ve just unlocked the key narrative for those last paragraphs. I choose not to kiss you, however.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

RT @Nickhodge: the future of journalism is collective objectivism via media ‘hubs’ that provide a gravity for earning a living (revenue)

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Alas, I’m WAY too distracted researching the sequence of events on 7 Oct. I’m now knowing lots about that day for 100 word intro.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge I’ve cut out 2/3 of @smartbrain’s stream and I’m working on those last few paragraphs now, yes. More about hyperconnectivity.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@ZebraBites No commentary from MCA. My phone display dies when I open the keypad so I can’t send SMS. I may blog later, but probably not.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ZebraBites

Meanwhile I keep poking at my essay on The Future of Journalism and reading too much about Thai politics.

@ApostrophePong and I will soon leave for the Museum of Contemporary Art for the last day of “Video Logic”. http://is.gd/5uSn

Oh, you know that mouse which Artemis hunted the other day? We just found it.

@SnarkyPlatypus If ur leaving teh Praguez with your dignity intact then ur holiday is teh failz. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@plasmaegg “Im in ur interwebz using ur blue languages”, apparently.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Dear Twitter folk, pls never visit Coyotes in Prague. Currently playing, Kylie’s Locomotion.

Another fine blog post on Internet censorship, “Bad Conroy”, with an… erm… amusing characterisation of yours truly. http://is.gd/5u9Z

via Twitter Web Client

@DJPoyner I saw a blog post somewhere the other day which asked “Have you forgotten why you started freelancing to begin with?” Just Say No.

via Twitter Web Client

@DJPoyner Secrets can also hide incompetence. A more challenging post for a Monday is http://is.gd/5D8p Enough linkage for now though! :)

via Twitter Web Client

@DJPoyner Yes, I have thought about it a lot. :) “Radical transparency” in business is akin to “open source” in software. Secrets hide lies.

via Twitter Web Client

@DJPoyner Another related post: “Being Real: more notes on radical transparency” http://is.gd/5D6k

via Twitter Web Client

@DJPoyner Related post: “Is it really so wrong to mix business and politics (and religion)?” http://is.gd/5D5Y

via Twitter Web Client

@DJPoyner If clients can’t cope with the full range of ME, then the sooner that’s revealed and they go elsewhere, the better for us both.

via Twitter Web Client

@DJPoyner “Will your twitter stream become less volatile if your clients starting following it?” No, there’d be no change…

via Twitter Web Client

@WarWraith True, they wouldn’t let me tweet from jail. On the plus side, though, my sex life might pick up a bit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WarWraith

Mon plan: Work steadily through the daunting pile of crap in my inbox while resisting the urge to shoot a certain client in the head.

via Twitter Web Client

@twitties Linear projection on “current tweet levels”? What timeframe? Your estimate is way dodgy. It was 16/11 yesterday, now 12/11 today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to twitties

RT @twitties: The billionth tweet is expected at 2008-11-12 20:58:00 EST (currently 15.1 tweets per second)

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl “Physiognomy”? Now my head hurts. Big words stick in the throat like a too-hot chip. It’s too early for big words.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

On the Internet, everybody is a seagull.

via Twitter Web Client

@Akula I think there’s room in the world for more than one point of view.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Akula

@Akula Re blogs that tell others how to blog / don’t need >1 CopyBlogger. By that logic, we don’t need more than one newspaper? Not so sure.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Akula

@Tarale @posty @timelady Curious that you read some more personal aspect into my comments about follow/unfollow? Or am I reading too much?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Tarale

Emerges. This is probably not the best day to have a Monday, but I guess we have one nonetheless. That’s inconsiderate.

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway… sleeps calls. I have emailed my essay and I hate it now. [sigh] [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@bigmac “For me, I just admire your freedom of self-expression.” That’s code for “You swear a lot”, I know. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bigmac

This is 10x the amount of thought I’ve put into this than the entire time I’ve used Twitter. It’s “just” a conversation.

via Twitter Web Client

@callumj Everybody is a seagull on Twitter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to callumj

@pixel8ed @nzjerseyliz I couldn’t care less if someone “follows” back or not. If I @reply and they don’t, maybe I’ll stop @replying. [shrug]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pixel8ed

@oyvind I stopped “following” the seagull after a while. Why? Because I had a train to catch. Not because I was less interested in seagulls.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oyvind

@oyvind Exactly. Follow is just follow. I was watching a seagull the other day. why? Um, it was there and I wasn’t doing anything else…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oyvind

@plasmaegg No, not feeling philosophical or morose at all, just responding to the questions I saw. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@nwjerseyliz You’re assuming (like too many people do) that the unfollow is because of the most recent tweet. Maybe it’s ‘cos they’ve go …

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

I’m sure there’s people who follow me for the serious stuff who drop me when I get snarky or inane, and vice versa. Does any of it matter?

via Twitter Web Client

@aqualung I sometimes follow people who’ve said a few things I was interested in at the time, then drop ‘cos their own interests morph.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to aqualung

@aqualung “Ploy to get followers” is perhaps putting too much intent into it all (except for folks who only see things as marketing).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to aqualung

If Twitter is the world’s cocktail party conversation, nothing wrong with attention wandering around a bit.

via Twitter Web Client

I unfollowed @cameronreilly for a bit when he was haranguing Christians even more than usual, followed back when he dropped that bone.

via Twitter Web Client

There are people I’ve known for ages and like well that I don’t follow ‘cos they tweet about things I don’t wish to follow that closely.

via Twitter Web Client

People read too much into follow/unfollow. Follow is “I choose to be pushed everything you say on Twitter”, not “I like you as a person”.

via Twitter Web Client

Pls stop distracting me with interesti questions until I finish my essay kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers: “Why is everyone suddenly obsessed with who’s following/unfollowing?” ‘Cos there are now tools to tell you / measure it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@DJPoyner @wolfcat Good techniques both, but I chose another: explain the story to @ApostrophePong. In so doing I chose to burn some pieces.

via Twitter Web Client

Bugger. Writer’s block. Stuck on how to arrange the ideas in the last few paragraphs. I know the pieces will fit, but it’s like a jigsaw.

via Twitter Web Client

Using the last bit of energy for the day finishing off that essay for the MEAA. I will not get distracted by Thai politics this time.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus There’s been more than a million Twitter users for yonks. A billion tweets doesn’t seem that many to me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

Re @ninjamoeba’s Rupert Murdoch quotes, he’s doing this year’s Boyer Lectures, ABC Radio. http://is.gd/5wYD 1st one now, all will be on web.

At Circular Quay now, if anyone wants to join @ApostrophePong and me then phone ‘cos my SMS is geb0rken and laptop goes into bag.

via Twitter Web Client

Bridge St, about to turn down to Circular Quay. Lunch at the Quay before entering the MCA.

@dizzystuff “The Final Countdown” again! Have a look at @SnarkyPlatypus’ stream. “The Final Countdown” is an omen of some kind.

33% of Americans say they get most of their election news from the Internet. http://is.gd/5t1x In 2004 it was 10%.

George St is full of the usual unwashed masses.

via Twitter Web Client

@ecoknowgrapher But I thought I’d throw it in to stir the pot. All hail Eris!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ecoknowgrapher

@ecoknowgrapher Oh yes that’s a loopy conspiracy theory site, all part of the fun. ;)

The King St traffic jam is in full effect today.

@ApostrophePong and I are now mobile. Train to Circular Quay ahoy!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

OK, I’m thoroughly creeped out by that server overload. Time for a head-clearing walk as I consider my next move.

@firstdogonmoon “Your new avatar makes me feel like a hot chip”. I guess that’ why you’re a potato? A match made in heaven. Or St Kilda.

@DenubisX It’s the shared hosting server for my business clients.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DenubisX

OK, the load average is coming back down again. But now I have this hollow feeling in my gut which says that server has just been pwn3d. :(

via Twitter Web Client

FFS “load average: 69.36, 45.93, 19.82”? WTF?

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 But CAN you sing in a loud, piercing falsetto? If so, you must be one of THEM!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@dizzystuff @SnarkyPlatypus It’s aliens! They’ve finally come to take us to a better place with falsettos, long blond hair & leather pants!

Were heading for Venus and still we stand tall / Cause maybe they’ve seen us and welcome us all …

Lyric here: http://is.gd/5De3 There’s only on verse and one chorus, so there’s no excuse!

@dizzystuff Excellent! To perk up a bit I’m going to put on “The Final Countdown” right now… LOUD! http://is.gd/5Dc8 Sing along, everyone!
