@GreenJ You’re just jealous because you have no friends. :P New media people are allowed oto have friends.

I see that Senator Conroy will be holding a media conference at 1430 about the NBN. I wonder if anyone has any questions today… ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Struggling to find anyone expressing sadness that Telstra’s out of the NBN bid, apart from Telstra itself. Anyone?

RT @neerav: beware Australia Post is packed to the rafters with Andre Rieu merchandise

@mpesce If you’ve written something evil apparently that means I now have to write something 4% more evil still.

RT @danupoyner: @thetowncrier @stilgherrian You can put it in the hands of your attorney but it’ll never stand up in court.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus That whole phrase “NSFW” shits me. Bullying, corruption, overwork, unethical behaviour all OK, but dare see naked skin! Bah!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jeffsonstein Thanks for the linkage to Georg Simmel http://is.gd/bQVu Reading “The Metropolis and Mental Life” http://is.gd/bRe9

Apparently @timoreilly invented electricity, though. Or at least he looks like he did.

@thetowncrier Sorry, did you just say Justice Michal Kirby has “enormous shoes”? Is that a euphemism? ;) He’s a wicked old devil, for sure!

@nwjerseyliz I’m assuming graphing social networks came from Cold War signals intelligence on identifying spy networks etc so a maths basis.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@firstdogonmoon “On the Internet, no-one knows you’re the Prime Minister”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@nwjerseyliz Actually, sociologists graphed social relationships, though whether the specific phrase “social graph” was theirs… [shrug]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@SnarkyPlatypus Thank you, I’ve just spend 10 happy minutes listening to Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward’s clipped tones. Moist.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@nwjerseyliz Geeks and tech writers always think that geeks and tech writers invented everything. Ignorant of other fields.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@TurnbullMalcolm Yes, @firstdogonmoon is 100% right. You need to suggest today’s Crikey cartoon.You’resmart, I know you’ve got it in you!

@nwjerseyliz The term “social graph” came from ethno-sociology a decade or two ago, actually. Mapping trade patterns in African tribes etc.

Transcript of the Q&A in Senator Conroy’s NBN media conference yesterday. http://is.gd/bJHb Good to see him back in ball-tearing form.

@jeffsonstein @mpesce If they do roll out a spoken Wikipedia, I want it to sound like an English dominatrix.

@hopeinhell Entrails may be messy but it’s good to get to the bottom of things. So to speak.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hopeinhell

Emerges. Examining the entrails.

Bugger, after midnight again, oops. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@FiBendall I’m happy Conroy has the balls today to tell Telstra to fuck off. They engineer good networks, no need to be pricks about it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to FiBendall

@trib You are being too polite to people today. Sometimes one really does need to tell people they’re full of shit and beyond redemption. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@LN1973 [smirks] I’ll tell you privately, no need to reveal the location of the random Telstra insulter just yet. It’s funny though.

via Twitter Web Client

Amused at the person who just posted an anonymous insult on my website from a Telstra internal address. Coward.

via Twitter Web Client

@hwakelam @Jon_Seymour Well I’ve already said my bit about Telstra today. http://is.gd/bG2H And been quoted. http://is.gd/bKTe

@DenubisX I’ll be asking Virgin for on-record explanation tomorrow. 3 hours without 3G is unacceptable, that’s the service I’m paying for.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DenubisX

@Mikenicholls88 I was with Vodafone until last month, happy. Virgin/Optus is a pile of shit. Have yet to get full HSDPA bandwidth ANYWHERE.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mikenicholls88

Since moving to Virgin/Optus last month I’ve ben wanting to know why it’s so shit-bad.

via Twitter Web Client

@LN1973 Man, Telstra NextG is clearly the best network, but then they fuck up their bid for the NBN by being complete arseholes!

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Virgin, 3 hours of no 3G in Newtown is unacceptable.

Mobile to the gym. It’s been a while, this is going to be… challenging. Look out, @SnarkyPlatypus, you’ll be blamed for things.

via Twitter Web Client

@KainTietzel AFAIK the wond’rous Andrew P Street isn’t on Twitter. He’s quite the Luddite, really. ;)

@lindsayevans OK, isn’t it obvious that I KNEW it was really ‘MacGyver’ but I was being post-ironic?
