John Bracken’s “2008’s Most Influential Writing About Media”. http://is.gd/dANx [How does he know it’s “influential”? Were there results?]

via Twitter Web Client

Yes, CityRail, my plans for the day definitely included sitting at Town Hall for half an hour. @stilgherrian appreciates your cooperation.

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway, I’ve moved beyond Rickrolling, thanks to @theinquisitr. http://is.gd/es72

via Twitter Web Client

@josh909 Oh shoosh you! At least I didn’t Rickroll you. :P

@zbender This URL? http://is.gd/erXQ It goes to the Vinnies story for me? Ah, I see my previous tweet missed the last character. Poo.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zbender

Wow that retweet of the St Vincent de Paul story seems to have pressed some buttons! http://is.gd/erX Still, who likes hypocrisy?

via Twitter Web Client

Making the transition from the cafe near my Secret Eyrie back to my Village. When I get there, I shall have a beer at Kelly’s.

via Twitter Web Client

@josh909 The Salvation Army has weird-arsed theology, but they roll up their sleeves and do the hardest, ugliest charity work others don’t.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to josh909

Oh, and FFS no-one tell @cameronreilly about the St Vincent de Paul story or we’ll never hear the end of it! ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH Yes, someone with no bed wouldn’t worry whether the bed was varnished or not. Some lame health regulation maybe? Woodworm?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@kcarruthers I suppose Vinnies’ Grand Inquisitor grills you on stuff from the Catechism? http://is.gd/es00 And then the nuns cane you.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@JonoH I sympathise, but harassing a sick woman, one of their volunteers, for not being Catholic is a bit worse than your bed problem. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@andrewbarnett The US business mind is about growth, but is that part of Free Enterprise / expand into Frontier / Bigger is Better thang?

via Twitter Web Client

St Vincent de Paul no longer gets ANY support from me. Why? http://is.gd/erXQ Hat-tip to someone from earlier, cbf scrolling.

via Twitter Web Client

@ragnarok1971 OTOH, choosing not to play in a war can mean you’re, erm, “subjugated”. I nearly said something else there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@trib Want to avoid mowing? Easy. The words you’re after are “concrete” and “green paint”. Think Greek!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@alphajuliet National railways were modelled on armies, even down to uniforms, because that was the model for precision management.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alphajuliet

@alphajuliet Also, through history the military has often been the key model for structuring large organisations, and especially post-WWII.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alphajuliet

RT @alphajuliet: “War” also means that CEOs can implement a command & control hierarchy rather than a more “democratic” institution. [Yes!]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @kcarruthers: funny how even conservative commentators are now saying death of newspapers is inevitable http://bit.ly/14GfV

via Twitter Web Client

@deanlk Your detailed comment on “So why do you watch Stilgherrian Live?” is VERY helpful, thank you. http://is.gd/esiB

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

@mgherman Tuesday trivia MUST be at The Duke Hotel in Enmore so the lovely Reta, dominatrix of pub trivia, could handle us personally.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mgherman

@kcarruthers Are they reliable witnesses? Hmmm… well without admission of anything I shall make enquiries about Tuesday Pub Trivia.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers [Without Prejudice] Do you have witnesses to this alleged plum-induced admission?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers What I am alleged to have said when I may or may not have been under the influence of plums (unlikely) is irrelevant. Or a lie.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@facibus Thank you, Sir! The worst of it was last night, now I just feel like The Morning After but without the joy of whiskey.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@kcarruthers We had been doing @stub Pub Trivia on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. I don’t think Reta is back from holidays yet

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Emerges, kinda. You know yesterday’s Big Breakfast? Well, I suspect the sausage. Of being suspect. Want me to describe the effluxion?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Are you getting fresh on the weekend? http://is.gd/esRd [Yes, of course I am. And weekdays too!]

via Twitter Web Client

At Kelly’s On King, with @ApostrophePong and @bengrubb. Respectable. http://is.gd/esQK

@grum Pls don’t use “tent” and “pants” in the same sentence kthxbai.

@limburger2001 I’m sorry, but there is just something terribly wrong about this photo. http://is.gd/ekqw Unless you’d like to DM me later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@bck Yes, yes, yes… @firstdogonmoon totally pwnes Twitter now. You are so 2008.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bck

@shelisrael Whether @jowyang is here or not, there’s new followers aplenty ‘cos people have time to explore Twitter over the holiday season.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to shelisrael

Ah, OK. The man with his hand in his lap, moving rhythmically, has Parkinson’s Disease. He’s not actually doing what I first thought. Whew.

via Twitter Web Client

So, @bengrubb is at Kelly’s On King now. It begins…

via Twitter Web Client

When I said “Julie”, I meant “Julia”. Gillard. I think my obsession with Julie Bishop is a little too strong. http://is.gd/d6r

via Twitter Web Client

RT @GreensMPs: Greens call on Gillard for Israel Action http://tinyurl.com/97x9nw [So Julie prefers her men cut? What does this mean?]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @viveka: I just spent an hour and a half going 5km, on the Pacific Highway, North of Buladelah.

Why I like Twitter #43466: I ask “So why do you watch ‘Stilgherrian Live’?” http://is.gd/esiB Within minutes I get 4 comments.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus I’ve seen footage of Phalanx in action, not the real thing. If the RAN would like to provide a demo, I’ll write about it. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

RT @rosshill: Why do people always say we live in ‘interesting’ times? Have we ever lived in boring times? [Agreed. Being bored = stupidity]

via Twitter Web Client

@matthewlandauer @garthk Hang on, I’m here BY MYSELF at the moment. Nothing is congealing except my own sense of self-worth.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@waferbaby Well, I’ll remember you no matter what if you say who you are when you see me in the street. I remember faces, not names.

New blog post: “So why do you watch ‘Stilgherrian Live’?” http://is.gd/esiB

@bengrubb Well the others have gone wandering. I’m here all alone at the moment, though @ApostrophePong will be here approx 1430.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@facibus Shotguns are traditional, I agree, but maybe we could help Metal Storm do some decent field testing. http://is.gd/esgt
