@vealmince Three-quarters of the sniffer dogs’ “detections” are false positives, says NSW Ombudsman. http://is.gd/94dI (Dumb photo though.)

@DrMiaow Tomorrow’s forum on Internet censorship (I’ll liveblog) http://is.gd/76VZ the Conroy Rule is no equating free speech & child porn.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DrMiaow

@sammyjopeters The sniffy sniffy dogs ARE cute. They don’t bite. It’s the big bitey snarley dogs that do that. Division of K9 labour.

I note that Senator Stephen Conroy is doing a doorstop interview at 5pm re the National Broadband Network tenders received today.

@firstdogonmoon I see that Wilson Tuckey is your new bestest best friend too!

@michaelmeloni “The Conroy Rule” is Gold. I wonder if anyone will be fool enough to break it?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

11+ police at Kings Cross station with 2 x sniffy sniffy woofies.

via Twitter Web Client

Said rule has been named “the Conroy rule”. [smirks]

via Twitter Web Client

Yay! A rule for tomorrow’s Internet filtering Forum: “The first person to equate free speech and child porn loses the floor and all points.”

@jeamland Crikey story sizing was originally partly about how big an email would fit in little POP3 mailboxes. Remember 1MB max emails?

@ragnarok1971 There were no symptoms of the Vitamin D deficiency as such. It showed up in a routine batch of blood tests.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@rod3000 Welcome to Twitter. Love your work at good ol’ New Matilda.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rod3000

@kurokaze204 Indeed. I see nought wrong with Christians, any religion advertising. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion. Or non-religion.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DeltaKnowledge

@plasmaegg “Too much news” does seem a hangover from limited dead-tree space or time-based linearity. I am not the editor tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

Mobile. Hitting Stanmore station to Kings Cross station to Darlinghurst client office. More en route and from there.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat Certainly in Sydney Hillsong advertises their Chrismas events on buses. Will grab a photo when I see one next.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

RT @wolfcat: Atheist Foundation of Australia… refused permission to buy advertising space on public transport. http://is.gd/93zR

via Twitter Web Client

My Crikey piece has been bumped ‘cos there was too much news today. Bloody news. They still run @firstdogonmoon’s goddam cartoons tho. Pigs.

via Twitter Web Client

I’ve gymed. I’ve lunched. I’ve hung out my damp towel and enwashingbasketed my dirty socks. I’m now preparing for a journey to Darlinghurst.

via Twitter Web Client

Approaching gym. Uhoh. Going quiet.

via Twitter Web Client

@comedy_nerd The Ruddiversary piece was done in 450 words ‘cos could link to previous articles.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to comedy_nerd

@viveka You’re spot on. Conroy’s part of the bully-into-submission Labor right. Bullying is not a good community consultation strategy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to viveka

“Statistics Laundering: false and fantastic figures” http://is.gd/91Iy Research into “alarming” stats on child pornography on the Internet.

via Twitter Web Client

Crikey article sent. Prepare for the gym now. @SnarkyPlatypus and I will both ache, it’s been too long a gap.

via Twitter Web Client

@crispynoodles THA is a major trading parter with AUS, but @ApostrophePong and I have had to get coverage from Twitter and blogs. MSM FTL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

@cshirky My parther is Thai ex-pat. We’ve been following this closely. “Journalism in a hyperconnected world” http://is.gd/91hX re this. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cshirky

@StephenEdgar I’d love to know what is doing with Twitter, thanks for the tip, will look into it some time.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to netweb

@wolfcat I woke up before the heavy jets AND the cats AND the alarm, so perhaps I have had enough sleep. ;) Beware, people, beware!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@cshirky Amusing that a crisis running for months only gets into US news when it disrupts Western tourists at the airport. Parochialism FTL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cshirky

@cshirky If we’re trying to reduce Thailand’s political crisis to an ill-informed 140-character slogan then we’re truly fucked.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cshirky

@BreakfastNews Unless, of course, you intend to say “violence across Asia this morning”. Bah to tabloid beat-ups.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

@BreakfastNews I wouldn’t have thought Mumbai was “South East” Asia. South Asia maybe. Don’t try to link unrelated incidents IND and THA.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

Emerges. Seeing what it’s like living as one of the plebs by turning to ABC @BreakfastNews as I drink coffee. Why do people do this?

Almost home. Going off-grid. [exit]

@JonoH For me someone using Magpie would be unfollow.

@greymatter78 I’m told I’m responsible for introducing Shaun Micaleff to Supernaut’s “I Like It Both Ways”. Not sure what that means.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to greymatter78

@Laurelhed It’s @PeterBlackQUT’s characterisation, with an “or”.

via Twitter Web Client

@PeterBlackQUT I’ll just be me. What happens depends on how the forum unfolds.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

Time for me to head west-ish. I must be rested for tomorrow, since @PeterBlackQUT finds me “offensive or provocative”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@RozP @storyseeker @JulzM Thank you for your support / sympathy / empathy / convient attachments. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JulzM

I’ve just been told that certain people find me “amusing”. Fuck them. Fuck the lot of them, the patronising cunts!

@facibus Alas I must be tired and ill, I missed the obvious oral sex joke. :(

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@facibus The only times pigs enter my life are 1. pork fillet, rare, various treatments; or 2. very very private.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@SnarkyPlatypus I think you might be right about the Internet filter being a Conroy-specfic job. http://is.gd/94yr

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@franksting Pls trawl my Twitterstream re tomorrow’s forum. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@franksting The Conroy can’t ban encrypted networks. No ecommerce would be possible. Anything can be encapsulated in anything.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@cameronreilly Congrats on 4 years of The Podcast Network. Now pimp the links so new folk can find your casty goodness.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cameronreilly

I hope I sound less like a frog tomorrow. Otherwise “Stilgherrian Live” will be a text stream with dirty pictures.

via Twitter Web Client

@liako I’d forgotten what a wonderful news source Stratfor is. Must re-subscribe.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to EliasBiz

I am all but done at the Darlinghurst client’s office. Soon there shall be supper and the journey home.

via Twitter Web Client

Indeed tomorrow’s forum should be excellent. http://is.gd/76VZ It’ll be great to catch up again.

via Twitter Web Client

@PeterBlackQUT @michaelmeloni Sent. I’ve made you both panellists so you can appear with equal “status” in the live blog graphically.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

@chichiri @franksting Naw @BreakfastNews just read out some of the tweets they’d been sent. Not mine, oddly enough. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@PeterBlackQUT Ah to embed the CoveritLive livebloggy thing you’ll need the HTML code I can send you by email…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@chichiri Oh it wasn’t ABOUT Twitter. ABC @BreakfastNews has started using Twitter for live feedback, just like SMS and email and the rest.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chichiri

@chichiri I’ve been watching ABC @BreakfastNews this week to see how they deal with Twitter, but was frustrated by linear live TV. :/

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chichiri

@chichiri Agreed, the stream is very useful. Broadcasting en masse is so 20th Century.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chichiri

@mpesce There is no telly in this office alas. I must stay in this office until all the blue and grey bars are the same length.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

The stream has been killed. I ben they were watching, the cnuts.

via Twitter Web Client

Ooooh! No! The MPEG stream has been corrupted and it’s the presenter’s face merged into Alison’s head!

via Twitter Web Client

Well http://is.gd/3GBP does seem to be working as a iive stream… for the moment.

via Twitter Web Client

@paulkidd @mpesce I’m told by @wolfcat that http://is.gd/3GBP is “the stream” for all live stuff, intended for news, sometimes left on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulkidd

“Clive Hamilton & I: Getting Personal about Sex, Lies, Hate & Censorship” http://is.gd/94yr A long rant which I’m about to read. You too? :)

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge I should have @PeterBlackQUT and @michaelmeloni and a few others as contributors too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Bookmark for tomorrow! Internet Censorship Forum @ UNSW http://is.gd/76VZ I’ll live-blog at http://is.gd/94Wi Can embed in your site too.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce My mileage always varies. I seems to be a natural part of my life. Variation, that is.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Pottering thru some routine sysadmin stuff at a client’s office in Darlinghurst. A couple more hours to go, I reckon.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Is streamed at all NOW, or must I wait until it ends up on ABC iView?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@kurokaze204 Cheers. The Religion Report on the atheists’ bus advertising being rejected is at http://is.gd/93zR for those who missed it. ;)

I’ve written that you can’t use rhetoric on computers, so why do I feel that interactions with Domain Controllers are hostage negotiations.

via Twitter Web Client

@mgherman Indeed. As I said over 2 years ago, across two years 7500 people were stopped and searched for no valid reason. http://is.gd/rOa

@UNSW If you check my Twitterstream you’ll find linkage to liveblog of today’s Forum on Internet censorship.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to UNSW

@franksting FFS! So @UNSW tweets you about where to get coffee? Sweet.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

On 370 bus, passing Sydney Park, soon to meet @peterblack &a@michaelmeloniloni at UNSW.

via Twitter Web Client

@chris23 I now wish I’d posted the long version with more detail of Thai politics, if @cshirky &a@timoreillyilly are RTing me! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chris23

@cshirky @oliyoung I’ll prob write the Thai backgrounder this evening SYD time, about 10 hours away.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cshirky

via Twitter Web Client

@NathanaelB @Nickhodge Oops! Deccan is more southern, correct, I forget how far north India goes inland. http://is.gd/9amA

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

@oliyoung The Thai political backgrounder would be fast to write. I’d just type up my standard 10-min pub explanation. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@NathanaelB “Deccan” is the north-central plateau of India. Rural. Dry. Poor.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

@cshirky Cheers for the RT. I’m thinking I might knock off a quick 500-word backgrounder on Thai politics some time soon.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cshirky

@BreakfastNews Flipped back to look at the screen, man in suit. Who it he? Leave the super up while we’re having breakfast.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

RT @Nickhodge: just seen on twitter stream “What country is mumbai in? i know at least two people in africa right now.” FFS.

via Twitter Web Client

@BreakfastNews Time for the ABC to re-gain its bollocks and have the guts to say “But that doesn’t answer the question, Minister. [repeat]”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

@BreakfastNews Listening to Senator Conroy avoiding answering a question. Does he ever do ANYTHING else?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

@Nickhodge Ain’t it creepy seeing places you know becoming the scene of incredible violence? Still, the chances are still VERY low.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@thomasrdotorg Ah! Only seeing half the conversation I got the wrong end of the stick. XBOX? Outside my problem field, alas! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thomasrdotorg

@thomasrdotorg Router problems recently started? Check for new firmware, and new wireless points in the vicinity causing interference.

@crispynoodles TV news is a formula. Standard product from a media factory. I reckon they’re too close to it to see how to change it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

Would it disturb people if I described the exact shade of greenish-grey in this phlegm I just coughed up?

via Twitter Web Client

@robcorr If one wants infotainment with @BreakfastNews then we have channels 7 and 9. We don’t need a clone just with saggier breasts.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to robcorr

@crispynoodles No such thing as “unfiltered” news. One MUST select what to report. “Editing” vs “censorship” is a matter of intent, not act.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

@crispynoodles One of @ApostrophePong’s old uni friends is a political journo for TV in BKK, we should get in touch.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

@crispynoodles Tho watching TV yesterday, “I know that wall, that’s by a diner I know in BKK”, then a guy popped up and shot a pistol.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

@crispynoodles Thankfully BKK is 10M+ people, violence is very localised. @ApostrophePong’s closest family is 3hr east in Rayong province.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

RT @wolfcat: It is not a reputation for trouble making… it is FACT :-), someone described your live shows as having a m30+ Rating :-)

via Twitter Web Client

@crispynoodles The big question newsrooms have to ask themselves is whether they’re about infotainment/ratings or providing understanding.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

@crispynoodles Even ABC (you too @BreakfastNews) words headlines to choose emotions for you. “Shocking news…”. I’LL decide if I’m shocked.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

@cshirky You’ll have had a variety of responses for the THA question ‘cos it’s very complex, very divided, very deep roots.
