@middleclassgirl If you’re about to do something with pineapple and prawns you also need hoops and miniature bicycles and a whip.

@limburger2001 Yeah just shove ‘em in the gas chambers. All’s good as long as they have nice biscuits, eh?

I’ve just re-watched out little film “The Shave” and I’m… concerned. http://is.gd/8DMJ

RT @viveka: To pull a Conroy: to attempt to cover ignorance of a topic (esp. after claiming expertise) with bluster and/or vindictiveness.

@pixel8ted Ikea is obscene. Low-durability products, founded by a former neo-Nazi, with a tax-evading structure. Lots of WIN there!

Fantastic slide sequence: Merlin Mann’s “Who Moved My Brain? Revaluing Time and Attention”: http://is.gd/1Juh

via Twitter Web Client

Despite the risk, I’ve popped into The Afternoon Office™ to read for a while.

via Twitter Web Client

Lunch has been had. Time for further movement down Enmore Rd / King St for vitamin supplies. (No, sadly, that is not a euphemism.)

via Twitter Web Client

Just caught Merlin Mann’s Damn Fine Blog Post “Time, Attention, and Creative Work”: http://is.gd/2s1H Too. Fucking. Right.

@mpesce “Long pork”? Um, “long pig” means human flesh, so are you eating…? [shudder]

@Alegrya I will ask about gym-referral kudos. I’m sure we can “come to some arrangement”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

@dizzystuff I’ll see if we can get some sort of intro deal for you at Newtown Gym. The Platypus arrives back in Oz tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@dizzystuff I think using “Conroy” rather than that other C-word is a FINE idea, and we should spread this meme.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@dizzystuff The Platypus and I just go to Newtown Gym above Thai Pothong on King St. Well, when he’s in the country and I’m not slack.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@mpesce Oh just realised you differentiated between “massed” and “massive”. Far too subtle for me on the weekend.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@dizzystuff Fitness First will be struggling. There’s perfectly good gyms around and they have a reputation for aggressive / deceptive ops.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@dizzystuff To answer your questions: Free; three times a week; from right now; all night if appropriate arrangements are made.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@mpesce Oh hello, you! I meant “mass cluefulness”. Wisdom of the crowds and all those clichés. I can’t type when I have a cold.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@alexschlotzer So, given the massed cluefulness of the hyperconnected, how to we get unconnected politicians to use this resource?

via Twitter Web Client

@BreakfastNews Rudd got an overwhelming mandate for change and a safe majority, but has just pfaffed around for a whole year. What a waste!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

@DenubisX Ah, “use of the net as an exocortex” is a truly different angle! And indeed I’ve thought about that angle too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DenubisX

@alexschlotzer B is indeed a bullshit subject, but ABC’s Saturday AM did a “regulate Internet to stop it” story. http://is.gd/8DaO

@Nickhodge @kcarruthers Typealizer says @KevinRuddPM is ISTJ. That would certainly fit the PM’s profile.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Twitterverse, a very respectable outlet asked me to write an essay. On what? A Net censorship; B Net suicide panic; C Future of journalism?

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Pls don’t be using @KevinRuddPM and “flow” in the same sentence kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@jodiem Hmmm… Do you consciously try to write for a different audience from yourself? That could explain a difference in styles.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

@kcarruthers Of curse we should start putting corporate and politicians’ sites into that MBTI tester…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

RT @kcarruthers: Test what MBTI type your blog is http://www.typealyzer.co… [Wow! It correctly picked me as INTJ in about 2 seconds!]

via Twitter Web Client

FFS! I agree with Glenn Mile’s piece on Internet censorship! http://is.gd/8CZZ He characterises EFA as “an independent industry watchdog”.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @ApostrophePong: Singha beer $4 a bottle at Thai Food Festival. Bargain. [Head to Tumbelong Park now, people! Hehe!]

via Twitter Web Client

@dale_clapperton Welcome to Twitter, Sir! Your analysis of the legislative aspects of Internet censorship is fascinating! http://is.gd/4UBp

@Jinjirrie Let’s try this: Weak sun barely warms. / The icy wind knifes clean through / the deserted street.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jinjirrie

The sun is good. The wind is fierce. The street is bleak. The sentences are short.

via Twitter Web Client

Plan: Lunch and vitamin-shopping along Enmore Rd / King St somewhere. Braving the cold while having a cold is risky but necessary.

@trib http://cruzapp.com stupid home page. Tag line about sailing, nothing to say wtf I’m looking at. First impression: another web browser?

@Akula ISS was continued more for (inter-)national pride than any real scientific reasons, I suspect. Sunk-cost fallacy. http://is.gd/8BUn

@kcarruthers Count me in for @stub Goes to the Dogs http://bit.ly/ex0N6 I’m sure apostrphePong and @SnarkyPlatypus will be up for it too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@bronwen I have an essay in that MEAA report, so I’ll post linkage as soon as it emerges. I’m guessing The Oz went early, online today?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bronwen

RT @bronwen: So the MEAA wakes up! http://tinyurl.com/5mjgtw “Journalists warned of two years of carnage ahead”

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 Good morning, Sir. Let me tell you first, before all others: I officially feel shite today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@robcorr Thanks for linkage. That does look like an entertaining book, if a bit of a random selection of tales. http://tinyurl.com/6pnduq

@fustub I dunno that they’re “my” @stub Pub Trivia nights. I just assert that they’re on 3rd Wednesday and they happen. What’s to promote?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fustub

@websinthe Yeah, pure mathematics and numeracy are different things. But Clive Hamilton has managed to distort almost every field of reason.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

@SnarkyPlatypus Welcome back ot Sydney. We expect lurid tales and photos from you cheap-arsed Eurotour. In due course.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Emerges. That wasn’t much good in the way of sleep. This will prove to be bothersome today.

@hortovanyi There is no “point” to “Stilgherrian Live”. :) It’s also not the same without the live chat. Been thinking of not recording it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hortovanyi

Now I know why @ApostrophePong was concerned about the giant prawns. http://qik.com/video/603… WTF?!?!?!??!

via Twitter Web Client

@mediajorge Yes, if Warp Records was the only label left on the planet, I could survive. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mediajorge

I think the best thing I have learnerered today is the new word “cnutroy”. SO useful!

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge I think that’s the point. On my own website I’m thinking “first comment moderated” may be too much of a hurdle.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@mediajorge While the term “Intelligent Dance Music” is a wank, you ARE talking some of the finest techno produced! http://tinyurl.com/7vlaf

Since @firstdogonmoon is feeling neglected, can people please go to http://is.gd/8DY2 and register if needed and post a comment?

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon That and the fact that your blog makes no sense whatsoever. Cute animal pictures go only so far. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon That one has to register to comment will stop many people from commenting. Every hoop to jump thru reduces user interaction.
