@motownmutt Or is that not what you meant? I’m in too many simultaneous conversations, plus reading Bernark Keane.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to motownmutt

@motownmutt I haven’t checked, but there are signs the entire Crikey today was free. Everything was a “top story”.

I note that Google translated “charge my battery” into “withdraw my battery” in Russian. A finance / commerce bias?

@timdunlop I think the “porn war” framing is because all this is Clive Hamilton having his own guilt trip about whatever he did in the 60s.
