@GreenJ Agreed, the tree-slice is great for delivering a Big Picture overview of the news. I think we’ll be in furious agreement.

@GreenJ Maybe newspapers that have, y’know, actual events, instead of this strange paranoid fantasy world they “report” on?

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe if we replace every repetitive news story about newspapers dying with a fresh-translated Bananarama song… [nods]

Yes, yes, newspapers are dying. We’ve had that story enough now. Can we move onto the next story now, like what’s emerging to replace them?

@GreenJ Sydney SEEMED like a very wet spring but it was actually average. It’s been that long since average rainfall we didn’t recognise it!

@vealmince Yes, the 1964 “Fail Safe” is indeed the one linked to “Dr Strangelove”. One as drama, one as satire.

@SnarkyPlatypus Adam Spencer & Kerry Chika? Now there’s my fantasy quota blown for the month. And I do mean “blown”.

Cheering myself up by watching the original 1964 version of “Fail Safe”. http://is.gd/aY9d Forgot how they eroticised nuclear armageddon.

@jdub I’m haoppy with Ustream.tv for my purposes but haven’t explored other options recently. It’s an effort to trial / debug new workflows.

@mpesce Um, the “Valhalla of American Politics” would be full of dead people. Like the Republican Party. Your metaphor is geb0rken.

@mpesce I do not talk about Teh Obama any more since Teh Incident kthxbai. (He is of course perfect in every way.)

@mpesce “And you all thought that Illinois couldn’t possibly be that corrupt.” I did? I find that a highly unlikely thing for me to think!
