@trib By all means add article requests at Crikey, they’ll pay more attention to a grown-up.

Mobile to Darlinghurst for a 1500 appointment, then Sydney CBD at about 1630 then… the end of the week.

@trib P.S. Being “deliberately difficult” is my job kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib Yeah but we’re bleeding edge. Remember, I’m still fitting out businesses with email for everyone. And we’re moving away from email.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib @trevorcook Businesses are in denial 10y after Cluetrain ‘cos the world didn’t change in a day or a month, but slowly. Boiling frog.

@firstdogonmoon Apparently my “@KevinRuddPM stumbles into the Twitterverse” http://is.gd/7qkW is more value, it IS behind Crikey’s paywall.

China calls it IAD: Internet Addiction Disorder. Yes, officially a clinical disorder. http://is.gd/7pTy

@paullyoung Thanks. I feel the Internet censorship issue is really showing the government how online politics is VERY different now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

@paullyoung Nice post on @KevinRuddPM! http://is.gd/7pHN Maybe small Twitter audience now, but worth experimenting? Me “feisty”? Never ;)

About half of you said to use the “@” and half not, so I’ve left it to my illustrious editor to decide. That’s what he’s paid for. ;)

RT @wolfcat: David Penberthy has resigned as editor of the Daily Telegraph newspaper http://is.gd/7pzA

Crikey article filed! It’s only a brief summary compared with what I’ve already blogged, but it reaches the politicians and media.

The “Sarah Palin didn’t know Africa was a continent” story was a hoax, part of a pitch for a new TV show. http://is.gd/7z1k

Looking at @SnarkyPlatypus’ photos from his cheap-arsed Eurotour. http://is.gd/7ydS

Today is @ApostrophePong’s and @ragnarok1971’s birthday, too, so you can all do whatever is appropriate for that. That’s an order.

via Twitter Web Client

@ragnarok1971 [chuckles] I have a fairly high tolerance to alcohol, so I’m not a good person to drink with if you don’t. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

Emerges. That gap between tweets was probably way too short. Who can I blame?

via Twitter Web Client

Meatloaf is the cue to leave. [exit]

@ryancross Correct, control is indeed only an illusion. This is the Aneristic Delusion. At 0115 this is not relevant.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryancross

I have regained control.

This is @bengubb taking over @stilgherrian’s twitter account muahahahaha

@facibus I never met Richo… Senator Richardson but when I was at ABC I met plenty of “fanous”. David Attenborough was tops. Frank Herbert.

@websinthe Xenophon? Gawd, we were kids! But I always thought he had, um, a very high impression of himself.

@kcarruthers My life… M’dear, my life is at least three standard deviation from the middle of ANY Bell Curve you care to nominate! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@Nickhodge And, I was in the same Venturers (senoir Scouts) patrol with now-Senator Nick Xenophon. We went to the same school.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Once when I was hitchhiking as a lad, I was picked up by none other than UFO researcher Colin Norris. http://is.gd/7s5X Spooky.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@ragnarok1971 It has indeed been many, many years, Sir! Well, I shall brace myself for the encounter. Or wash, or something.

Dark clouds and lightning outside. Z Z Top’s “Legs” thumping downstairs. http://is.gd/550e Hunky guy in black singlet opposite. Ah, TAO™!

@bengrubb Yeah @ApostrophePong will be joining me here soonish for dinner. Feel free to join!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@zzap What I meant was that Google Translate told me “jeter” was wrong, “jeder” probably less-wrong. :) I understand it’s, erm, “limits”. ;)

@RalphBassfeld The Platypus will be thrilled. I’ve SMSed him now, so he can ponder it over breakfast.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to RalphBassfeld

@SnarkyPlatypus RT @RalphBassfeld: In correct German that would be “Guten Morgen allerseits” :-) [smirks]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jg_rat “Unless @SnarkyPlatypus is greeting the Yankees’ shortstop”… I try not to pry too closely… never know what will emerge. ;)

@einspruch It’s good of us to work this out at the END of his cheap-arse Eurotour. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to einspruch

@mbalara I don’t know that Ill still be here at 8. I don’t intend to stay out very long. Knackered.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MattBalara

@SnarkyPlatypus @einspruch Yes, Google Translate confirms it’s “Guten Morgen jeder”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Having a quiet ale at The Afternoon Office™ since my shopping expedition was full of FAIL. I doubt it’ll be quiet much longer.

via Twitter Web Client

@thomasrdotorg That said, my prediction that @KevinRuddPM would get 48 hours to make an impression was about right. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thomasrdotorg

@SnarkyPlatypus Are you sure “Guten morgen jeter” means what you think it does? You’re the top Google result for that phrase!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@thomasrdotorg I think you mis-read the mood… serving suggestions only, not proscriptions. And sorry for the mistype. Mobile keypads FTL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thomasrdotorg

@thomasrdotorg @mspecht No I was right the first time. Oh God, I am so confused! :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thomasrdotorg

@mspecht Ooops, t’was YOU saying I was on a “you idiot” campaign re @KevinRuddPM. Nope, that’s over-stating my criticism a LOT.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mspecht

Street outside Dendy Cinema having a lane blocked for opening night of… Bicycle Film Festival?

via Twitter Web Client

Sort of loose on King Street.

via Twitter Web Client

@thomasdotorg … though I certainly wonder whether the tactics & strategy has been thought through.

via Twitter Web Client

@thomasdotorg I don’t know that my response to @KevinRuddPM was “idiot”, @trib’s certainly isn’t…

via Twitter Web Client

Somewhat off-grid until 1630 AEDT.
