@franksting If it’s TechCrunch’s figures then I assume US. I suppose I should click through, eh? Bugger it, you can!

@HappySinger Oh hello, you’re the man who rickrolled the rally in Sydney on Saturday. Nicely done. Your jacket is inexcusable.

@alexschlotzer @Pollytics Thanks for your compliments re the Crikey piece. http://is.gd/c4f8 I see comments are starting to come in too.

Glen Turner, AARNet, on why internet filters being trialled are irrelevant. Wrong hardware, wrong software. http://is.gd/c4Mc

@LN1973 I choose not to comment about the lameness or otherwise of Crikey’s paywall. I give the editor enough grief as it is. ;)

Everyone else, in my article http://is.gd/c4f8 is an advert for the Crikey Xmas subscription special offer. Pls buy so they pay me more.

Why does the entire “Web 2.0” world seem to exist in a universe where no-one has an “e” on their keyboards?

@SnarkyPlatypus Pls do not talk about “Hot middle aged man on man action” with me and @GreenJ while @firstdogonmoon is watching kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@GreenJ Thank you, Sir! As my good friend @SnarkyPlatypus notes, my health levels and snark levels are interrelated. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@GreenJ You should now have my snarky article. Can I have another kiss now, Mr Editor?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

Head down, writing, not paying attention to anything distracting, no Sir!

Newsweek: “The Fed Who Blew the Whistle” http://is.gd/bB9M It takes guts to call out the NSA on illegal surveillance.

@paininthenet Yes, actually, the Facebook invite to “X’s Wake” did indeed get sent from X’s Facebook account. Slightly creepy.

Thu plan: Write for Crikey again (I think @GreenJ’s in luurrv!); desk afternoon on client projects; “Stilgherrian Live” 9.30pm Sydney time.

via Twitter Web Client

@GreenJ True, at least they didn’t tweet “Hi everyone, Simon’s dead!” in 140 characters or less. It was a tasteful Facebook invite.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

Wondering whether getting a Facebook event invitation to “X’s Wake” is really the best way to discover someone died. Le sigh.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @havi: Several well-placed drops from a small bottle of peppermint oil will take care of that. The ants, not the cockroaches. :)

via Twitter Web Client

@awmitchell Well, there WILL be a “Stilgherrian Live” tonight at 9.30pm Sydney time. http://stilgherrian.com/… Details later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to awmitchell

@SnarkyPlatypus The ants have exhausted our supply of chemical agents, alas. But their time will come, and they shall regret it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Matt_Tulk Nope, I didn’t watch “The Late Show”. I wasn’t fond of Mick Molloy. Maybe I should look up that sketch.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Matt_Tulk

@bushmanbill Glad you liked the Gonzo Twitter, Sir! http://is.gd/4vNu There shall be another soon, perhaps as a liveblog to be easier.

Excuse me, Ants, did I ASK you to take over the entire kitchen? We have Cockroaches for that!
