RT @michaelmeloni: Triple M 10pm tonight: Spoonman show covers filtering http://is.gd/7ghq EFA Dale speaking,possibly Conroy (he’s ducking)

via Twitter Web Client

@pixel8ted LOL! You know I WAS thinking of making a comment about Mosman and self-centred racist enclaves, but I’m being polite today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pixel8ted

@MosmanCouncil is now folowing me, though I have no idea why? I live in Enmore.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MosmanCouncil

@Jinjirrie Undoubtedly my site is MA15+: language and adult themes. Or SOME posts are. Most are not. No-one’s said what the granularity is!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jinjirrie

@kurokaze204 Yes, the Conroy-quoted list of 1200 sites are overseas websites which are ALREADY blocked at the borders.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DeltaKnowledge

RT @Colgo: “Conroy says the net filter will block 10,000 sites” http://tinyurl.com/6zo4he SO WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA, CONROY?

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon I can always tell when you’ve finished the daily cartoon for Crikey because there’s a slightly manic burst of Twittering.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

If I unfollow and refollow anyone today it’s because there seems to have been another Twitter follow/follower sync failure overnight.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @bengrubb: Everyone I followed yesterday, Twitter has decided to unfollow today :( - I can’t follow them back either… it wont let me

via Twitter Web Client

@monkeytypist An “anti-spambot” feature still isn’t “crashing” the “page”. Unless it’s a non-tech person using “crash” for any old glitch.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monkeytypist

RT @monkeytypist: I think the issue is that twitter added a new “anti-spambot” filter in the interim: http://bit.ly/4692gI

via Twitter Web Client

@KevinRuddPM Who did you speak to at Twitter who said you’d “crashed” the “page”? @algore added followers 100x your pace with no problems.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MrKRudd

@wolfcat I’m guessing a Rudd staffer “guessed” that Twitter had “crashed” and sued that as an excuse. I think we need to ask.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@wolfcat Kevin Rudd PM crashes twitter? http://is.gd/7fkq I doubt that. @algore was adding followers WAY faster, 2000+ in the first hour.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@greensblog Hi, what’s the value-add over just putting the Senators’ blogs into my RSS reader? Or is it just an alternative view? Not clear.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein No, the phrase “ambient intimacy” has been kicking around at least 2 years. http://is.gd/7eJJ

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@wolfcat Mark Newtown on “Today” this morning? If that video finds it way online, somebody please let me know!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@awmitchell Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed “Stilgherrian Live” as a first-time. I intend to experiment more with the format over summer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to awmitchell

Japanese Bert Newton! (This is really, really uncanny!) http://is.gd/7nID

via Twitter Web Client

New blog post: “@KevinRuddPM isn’t really Kevin” http://is.gd/7nGd (Plus recent links and last night’s “Cnut of the Week” result.)

via Twitter Web Client

Watching a big orange-eyed Pied Currawong steal some of the neighbour’s cat’s food. Cautiously. None of the cats have seen him yet.

via Twitter Web Client

@IanWoolf Good to chat with you for 2SER FM’s “Diffusion”. Look forward to hearing it back Monday at 6.30pm then the podcast.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanWoolf

@omegatron Glad you enjoyed watching “Stilgherrian Live” even without the live audience chat. http://is.gd/7ksV

via Twitter Web Client in reply to omegatron

Emerges. I’m glad it’s Friday but not sure about other aspects of the day.

via Twitter Web Client

Fading fast, long day etc. I’ll respond to everyhing else in the morning. Ciao all. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@mhawkins1970 I can commiserate with being locked out of your shop: I was once locked IN an office late at night. http://is.gd/7kAr

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mhawkins1970

@dnwallace Oh dinner was just some quick friend rice and pumpkin. No dismembered creatures tonight.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dnwallace

Should anyone be so silly as to want to re-watch “Stilgherrian Live” episode 33, it’s at http://is.gd/7ksV

via Twitter Web Client

@cait Glad you enjoyed the show, thank you. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

This is tweet 12,000. Senator Conroy is “Cnut of the Week” again. Meh. You do better.

via Twitter Web Client

This is tweet 11,999. Tweet 12,000 will be composed by the viewers of “Stilgherrian Live” at http://stilgherrian.com/… …wow!

via Twitter Web Client

You should also watch “Stilgherrian Live” to vote for “Cnut of the Week”. Lots of choices, it was hard to narrow down!

via Twitter Web Client

“Stilgherrian Live” starts in less than 9 mins at http://stilgherrian.com/… or thru on Ustream. Can’t watch Twitter now, join the chat!

via Twitter Web Client

And now I go quiet-ish to do the final prep for “Stilgherrian Live”. Plinkies start around 9.20pm Sydney time. http://stilgherrian.com/…

via Twitter Web Client

Choosing the final 4 nominees for “Cnut of the Week” from a field of 16+ candidates. You’ve all done very, very well.

via Twitter Web Client

“Stilgherrian Live” is only 50 minutes away at http://stilgherrian.com/… or click through to see it directly on Ustream.

via Twitter Web Client

Nominations for “Cnut of the Week” have now closed. It’s the Full Moon, too, so I’ve done something special for that.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Well of couse *I* am very special, but I think we can think of something special to do, can’t you?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@ApostrophePong has his work cut out compiling all your suggestions for “Cnut of the Week”, which closes in 10 mins. http://is.gd/7iCG

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

This is tweet number 11,990. I think something very, very special might happen tonight! ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Wow I’m getting SO many nominations for “Cnut of the Week” this week! I’ll leave nominations open for 30 mins more. http://is.gd/7iCG

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk I think the RAAF is reminding you either of 34L or 16R ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@bengrubb Do you mean ZDNet (allegedly) did not ask @duncanriley for permission, or (allegedly) vice versa?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

My “Welcome to Twitter, Prime Minister” was republished by ZDNet Australia, so more linkage for @mpesce and others. ;) http://is.gd/7jfP

via Twitter Web Client

@ryancross Senator Conroy IS the obvious choice, but he’s won the last two episodes and maybe it’s time for a change. The voting will tell.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryancross

RT @henrytapia: I’d like to nominate Silvio Berlusconi, showing how severely out of touch he is this week: http://is.gd/7j7N

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @Nickhodge I think the farmers deserve a nomination for “Cnut of the Week” for that whingeing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

“Stilgherrian Live” is at 9.30pm tonight Sydney time. Just 2+ hours left to nominate someone for “Cnut of the Week”! http://is.gd/7iCG

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge The Platypus has fulfilled his duties, please stop sending music video suggestions kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge @kdelarue Thank you for your flood of music suggestions, but they will only be used if @SnarkyPlatypus fails in his duties. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@SnarkyPlatypus Before you depart for the heart of Paris, Gentle Monotreme, we need a closing tune for “Stilgherrian Live”. DM please!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@barrysaunders Actually @Nickhodge drank Mac Kool-Aid two decades ago: I bought my first Mac from him in 1985. It’s worn off a bit. A bit.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Yourself as “Cnut”? In what way are you futilely resisting the tide of change?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@martinbarry The opposite. I have already pre-nominated Senator Conroy for “Cnut of the Week” since… well, I know mah peeps. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to martinbarry

“Stilgherrian Live” is at 9.30pm tonight Sydney time. Nominations are now open for “Cnut of the Week”! http://is.gd/7iCG

via Twitter Web Client

@websinthe Glad you’re liking our work, though to follow the Internet censorship debacle @michaelmeloni and his blog are what you need.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

@kdelarue Like your cock, sir. :) And also your piece on “Talking Cock”. http://is.gd/7iuj Another nail in Senator Conroy’s coffin…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kdelarue

@Jinjirrie Oh, yes, I’ve read the report on the Phase 1 trials… I’ve been following all this for a year or so. :) http://is.gd/4XCK

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jinjirrie

Pausing at Central with @ApostrophePong before heading home.

via Twitter Web Client

interview recorded, airs Monday 6.30pm, then podcast. Details Momday.

via Twitter Web Client

@michaelmeloni I don’t know about fucking you sideways but, yes, 2SER is at UTS in Sydney.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

@Jinjirrie I recommend people look at material on ACMA and DBCDE websites rather than surface spin & speculation.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jinjirrie

Mobile to Radio 2SER at UTS to do record interview about Internet censorship. Will tweet broadcast time later.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk You’re assuming (incorrectly) that politicians can / do distinguish between “address”, “URL”, “site” and “page”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@MosmanCouncil Oh I even have a client in Mosman, I’m quite cosmopolitan. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MosmanCouncil

@Froosh The target audience is… well, Crikey.com.au, i.e. intelligent and engaged but probably not Twitter users.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Froosh

Usage question. Would one say “a Twitter account called @KevinRuddPM” or not use the “@”?

via Twitter Web Client

Much as I want to keep chatting about @KevinRuddPM, I now have to write 400-500 words about it for A Certain Media Outlet.

via Twitter Web Client

@martin_english That’s the point. We don’t know who @KevinRuddPM is, either organisationally or personally. No clarity.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to martin_english

@juliancole That the ground rules for @KevinRuddPM weren’t clear meant that many (I’m guessing) assumed it’s be like @TurnbullMalcolm.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to juliancole

@juliancole “They need to engage” isn’t me “making the rules” but expressing opinion about how politicians should work to appear credible.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to juliancole

All that said, Twitter CAN be used successfully 1-way (e.g. @BBCNews and @lowflyingrocks), but their mission is clear up front.

via Twitter Web Client

If anyone just wants to MONITOR Twitter to see what people are saying, they can do that without joining.

via Twitter Web Client

@timeyles Well, whether Twitter is a sensible forum or not, @KevinRuddPM is here now and people are forming opinions… Tough time ahead!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timeyles

@jjprojects I don’t EXPECT companies or politicians to be using Twitter, but if they ARE here then they need to engage or there’s no point.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jjprojects

@jjprojects It’s not about companies vs politicians. It’s if you CHOOSE to join Twitter then you’re here, either in or out. No half-pregant.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jjprojects

@timeyles I find “Go back to your epic fails and om noms” to be unnecessarily aggressive, though by all means attack my arguments.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timeyles

I’m clearly caught between 2 feelings: 1. The PM deserves / should be better. 2. This IS new, cut them some slack. #1 is currently winning.

via Twitter Web Client

@jjprojects Indeed, the PM is a busy man. But @downingstreet have already provided an excellent model for @KevinRuddPM. [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jjprojects

@timeyles True, I should have expected that “politicians wouldn’t get it”, but hey I’m actually an optimist. [shrugs] I was wrong!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timeyles

@monkeytypist Maybe even an honest tweet that said “Oops, we didn’t realise interest would be so intense. It’s all new!” would endear us.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monkeytypist

@monkeytypist “It’s early days yet”? For a punter, yes. Anyone staffer should realise @KevinRuddPM would be under intense scrutiny Day 1.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monkeytypist

@hortovanyi I am very sure the PM’s jet has Internet access. That’d be basic for a nation’s leader, no?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hortovanyi

@eskimo_sparky A few tweets explaining who, what the plan is. Even “We’re overwhelmed by your interest. Thank you. We’ll have more Monday.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eskimo_sparky

@eskimo_sparky I don’t see why @KevinRuddPM can’t start interaction TODAY. Now. Not answer the questions, but at least acknowledge them…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eskimo_sparky

RT @monkeytypist: we’ve already established that’s wrong. the age story was bollocks; journo & staffer both seem misinformed

via Twitter Web Client

@al3x What do you reckon about “Too many twitters drown out [Australian Prime Minister] Rudd website”? http://is.gd/7oIs

via Twitter Web Client in reply to al3x

@monkeytypist No-one’s saying @KevinRuddPM should LEAVE Twitter, are they? Just that “they” need to start INTERACTING before they look lame.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monkeytypist

@hortovanyi I said on Wednesday that we’d likely give @KevinRuddPM 48 hours to unstumble. Today’s the day. And it’s not looking promising.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hortovanyi

@hortovanyi The difference is that @TurnbullMalcolm is the actual human, while @KevinRuddPM is… well… who? How? What? They haven’t said!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hortovanyi

RT @monkeytypist: http://bit.ly/4692gI? [Yes, the “Twitter suffers from anti-spam code” thing. Not “@KevinRuddPM crashes thru popularity”.]

via Twitter Web Client

@hortovanyi AFAIK @KevinRuddPM hasn’t replied to ANYONE yet, just what you see on the public timeline. Starting to look lame.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hortovanyi

@trib I’ve already half-blogged the “we crashed Twitter” thing. http://is.gd/7nGd Will see if Crikey wan’t to get me to pick it up.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@kurokaze204 Do we have linkage for “twitter problems caused by new antispam code”? I’m calling that “rumour” at this stage.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DeltaKnowledge

@trib After all, @stephenfry and @algore added thousands an hour without problems.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib My theory: Twitter had a random glitch and @KevinRuddPM’s political ego imagined their pissy few hundred adds was the cause.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@garthk Ustream has a “make private” option when saving a recording, or you can just not press “record”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

Bruce Schneier interview: “Securing Your PC and Your Privacy” http://is.gd/7o5B

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk A school of thought is emerging that I don’t record the shows AT ALL, since the live experience is sine qua non.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@garthk Actually not 100% my fault. Ustream won’t convert shows over 45 mins on their servers, have to download or screen-scrape. Effort++.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@garthk I am months behind in converting “Stilgherrian Live” Ustream .flv streams to other formats. Use a proper computer. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

One little errand and wander to Enmore Rd before settling down to work. I’ll post the day’s plans when I get back to my desk.
