Now, I may be on a TV news program soon. My updated photo is at http://is.gd/d3N What should I wear to appear authoritative? I have no suit.

@facibus When YOU’RE King of Australia? I reassure you, Good Sir, that it’s I who will be Tsar of this Wide Brown Land.

@SeandBlogonaut My “follower army”? If only they were so organised, the unruly lot! :) Hope you’re doing well in Darwin, Sir.

@websinthe Eh? It’s @fictillius who’s waiting for his parents to call. But no, I wasn’t much of a party animal until I started at uni.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

@fictillius Absolutely yes! Repeat back to your parents every dodgy discussion they ever involved you with after a late night out.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

RT @fictillius: Hmmm. I am at home waiting on a call from my parents to pick them up from a party. Something is wrong here.

RT @facibus: I still think that the label “citizen journalist” should come with a tube of hand cream to prevent chafing. [1000% agreed!]

Re-reading the Reuters editor on how Twitter etc will change journalism. For ones, a positive message. http://is.gd/hMTu

@kcarruthers I have not yet volunteered for @trib’s masterplan. I am already seriously over-committed and under-funded. [Hint.]

@anthonybaxter Ah the Sekrit Meeting is over. I’m home (just arrived) and pondering how early to go to bed before a day of writing tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to anthonybaxter

@SnarkyPlatypus I see your evening out with workmates at that dodgy bar on Cockle Bay Wharf will be full of… annoyances.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@trib Do you want to do the ol’ define audience, set tone thing?

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Maybe gather a dozen people to commit to one item per week or fortnight? [shrugs] I’vd been thinking other media ideas today. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@olac @ChrisClayton Editing tweets sounds creepy to me. If you said it, you said it. Editing the past IS 1984.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib eruditeferrets.com could be a blog aggregation of intelligent snark or possibly cartoons.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib What you do with ferrets is a private matter, Sir!

OH: “Like who’s Jeff Beck? Like, I know Jeff Buckley…”

@jowyang @Anders_Lundin Yes, the media hype on Twitter seems to be global. I have 4 writing commissions at the moment, 2 involve Twitter.

@fictillius That’s not “kite fun”, that’s kite FAIL! http://bkite.com/04cF1 Hint: The “kite” is meant to be in the “sky”.

@facibus Ah but I’d have dated the Internet’s demise to the Eternal September of 1993. Not 1995. http://is.gd/17wF AOL users FTL.

OH: “How is it my fault that the Internet’s being STUPID?”

The SEKRIT MEETING with @SnarkyPlatypus proceeds nicely, thank you for asking.

via Twitter Web Client

For those of you who suggested I adopt the Lee Lin Chin look earlier, try this for size! http://is.gd/hSQD

@deanlk One reason: Yass has the shortest railway station platform in Australia. Also a special guest.

At the gym. Pedalling. Waiting for @TardyPlatypus.

Markets in Newtown Square are growing, but isn’t it just the same cheap market crap as all the others?

Mobile. Gym etc with @SnarkyPlatypus and the our SEKRIT MEETING about “Stilgherrian Live” 2009.

@misswired Oi! I AM working, bitch! I’m tagging your goddam photos on Flickr and “building my network of influence” on Twitter. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@websinthe Rudd’s Australia 2020 summit wasn’t so much crowdsourcing policy but crowdsourcing smoke’n’mirrors.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

@misswired Yes, “crowdsourcing” is just a fancy way of saying “too cheaparsed or lazy to sort it out myself, I’ll leave it for others”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@deanlk Also, there will be a “Stilgherrian Live” road trip to Yass towards the end of February. Stay tuned for details, as they say.

via Twitter Web Client

@deanlk I will be trying to have minions help with “Stilgherrian Live”, yes. Also some format changes, different program types etc.

via Twitter Web Client

Maybe I should use this photo of me http://is.gd/hS5q courtesy of @ApostrophePong.

via Twitter Web Client

@pressedstarling I know about fashionfashists on News. Shoes: either the Dunlop Volleys (black, natch) or my hiking boots.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pressdarling

@adaptick I think ALLphotos of me are pretty daggy. I hate my chin. I’m currently tagging more on Flickr as I find them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to adaptick

@ApostrophePong Have you seen this photo of you in action? http://is.gd/hS2x Should I tag them “pong” or “‘pong”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@crispynoodles @viveka Maybe I could just do a Lee Lin Chin look. Maybe this one: http://is.gd/hS1q

RT @hopeinhell: I’m telling you, t-shirt, ass, fist.. *that’s* @stilgherrian authority.. to dress it up, a collar.. minister or dog..

via Twitter Web Client

RT @websinthe: If you’re going to dress newsy, dress SBS not Today Tonight. Though you wearing Naomi Robson’s dress would be funny as fuck.

via Twitter Web Client

This is perhaps a better photo of me for fashion direction purposes. http://is.gd/hRVD

via Twitter Web Client

@pressedstarling Alas, while I agree for a musician “band shirt with ripped jeans” works, this may not work for Serious News. Maybe. YMMV.

RT @Pattycam: Son just rang… “Mum, Google me and tell me where we are, I think we are lost”. Kids. *motherly snort. *found him too. :)

via Twitter Web Client

The be-on-TV look-like-an-expert fashion suggestions keep rolling in. I’ll summarise later today.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Um, that new portrait of me, which you call lame, was taken by YOU. http://is.gd/d3N

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@simontsmall It’s a serious news program. I would be [coughs] a respected Internet expert person.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to simontsmall

Listen, you little cockroach fuckers! It says “Extra Strength Fast Knockdown”! DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND ADVERTISING? SHOW SOME RESPECT AND DIE!

via Twitter Web Client

RT @trib: Could not resist registering eruditeferrets.com after seeing this http://tinyurl.com/caav7u

Some of those suggestions are getting a bit silly. This is the Internet, people, be serious.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. @ApostrophePong and I seek the Marrickville Markets. I daresay they’ll be where they were last week, and the week before.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus La destruction de Port Pirie est un bonus. La ville est polluée par le plomb, moche et d’autres de peu d’intérêt.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@derekbradley Perhaps I should have worn the traditional uniform of the Premier of South Australia: http://is.gd/gjt6

via Twitter Web Client in reply to derekbradley

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, la position Carper Couche est déjà pleine. Très complet. J’ai été nommé Premier ministre du Sud Ausralia!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour! Ma matinée a été excellente. Des rêves, un requin, une nomination politique, un currawong et un rat mort!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @wraptinweb: @stilgherrian Oh no… please don’t say you’ve… jumped the shark! [Bravo, Sir!]

via Twitter Web Client

@hopeinhell I don’t know about the shark in Hindley St, Adelaide. I haven’t been there in years.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hopeinhell

Sun plan: Brunch with @ApostrophePong at Marrickville Markets shortly; a day of writing (3 articles); quiet evening.

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl I’m not sure why it was a cartoon shark, but I did escape it adequately by… flying! I didn’t know I could even fly!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@middleclassgirl I believe I was just appointed Premier. Everyone was so impressed with my ability to escape an animated shark, apparently.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@stephenfry explains how he manages 88,000+ Twitter followers and requests understanding and clue. http://is.gd/hF0s

Also in my dream: My chief of staff’s name was Chris Kendle and he said my first media appearance should be at the Exeter Hotel, Rundle St.

via Twitter Web Client

My dream last night: I was made Premier of South Australia after escaping from the giant animated shark in Sydney Harbour.

@seancarmody You’re right, http://bit.ly/10yi is far worse. Lamest synth-keyboard solo ever. MId-tempo gap FTL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@seancarmody BTW, this kind of preludes the SEKRITPROJECT that @SnarkyPlatypus and I have devised… more news soon. ;)

@seancarmody I don’t criticise anyone for having a funny name. ;) Correct, http://bit.ly/hCSC is a shit song. ;)

Actually I am no longer researching because it’s WAY too late given I was up before 0600 and it’s now 2300+. [exit]
