@GreenJ I’ve just been told I’m your minion. That entitles me to a nifty black outfit, apparently. Wanna see?

Watching stupid old newsreels of camp English flying boats called “Princess”. http://is.gd/j05T Is this billable somehow?

@acatinatree Thanks for your visual aid http://twitpic.com/1ey3 … I’ll talk to the director in the morning.

@pam_rosengren @nichac But as @viveka said, if it’s audio only then get Audio Hijack Pro for your full OS X audio patching needs.

@pam_rosengren @nichac To record Skype audio and video on Mac, get Skype Call Recorder for US$14.95. http://is.gd/1MRy

@gb96 @slloydy @martinlau All good suggestions, thank you. I must now let the ideas settle. ;)

@exocetau Datacentres can look cool but be very noisy. Hmmm… Triggering lots of thoughts though!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to exocetau

@adambateson Sir, by all means ask! It’s a short piece, but with lights and the glamour of “TV” it’s 1200-1500 Thursday for access.

@ForsakenDAemon @oliyoung While both Central Station and Circular Quay would be awesome, they’re both complete PITAs to get approvals for.

@adambateson @sboiling @PursuitBrooke I’ll suss out what my budget is for this SEKRIT PROJECT. No-one tells me anything. ;)

Trying to think of a location which reeks of hyperconnectedness.

@websinthe Crikey the media’s reserve bench? No, more like the retirement pasture and padded cell. Have you SEEN those people?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

(Would love a location with a tech-looking office or similar, with a window overlooking a Sydney landmark. BUt anywhere warm and dry works.)

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Twitterverse, can has location Sydney CBD or near to shoot video interview Thursday 1200-1500. Ideally tech- or Sydney background.

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl Crikey isn’t a “newsletter” it’s a “gossip website”. I’m sure I read that in The Australian so it must be true.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@ApostrophePong If I’m trying to get rid of you I’m doing a pretty half-arsed job of it. :( Must. Try. Harder. [changes locks]

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Proposal for 50 min fast train between Sydney & Canberra http://is.gd/iZu7 [Gosh, here we go around the loop again!]

via Twitter Web Client

@crikey_news Bernard Keane’s description of Germaine Greer as a “sort of anti-matter version of Wilson Tuckey” is priceless!

via Twitter Web Client

@hopeinhell @wolfcat Thankfully, they are much more work-friendly mehtal images than were in my mind. [Whew!]

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat Maybe I shouldn’t ask, but how would one PASSIVELY replace a power pole?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

I suspected Boston.com’s The Big Picture would do the Victorian . And they have. http://is.gd/iVZA

@GreenJ Oh yes, I might get one for the “Stilgherrian Live Road Trip” on 25/2, unless @Nickhodge has one already.

Dear City Software, how is a 240V 150W inverter for your car cigarette lighter a Valentine’s Day Special? Wait. Don’t answer that.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Oh, I misread. All statistics are lies anyway. Well, 73% of them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Twitter has been re-synching follow numbers. It’s likely you gained them steadily over the last fortnight.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

RT @comedy_nerd: @foe ‘when you wish upon a damaged satellite fragment re-entering earth’s atmosphere…’ [No, sorry, not quite the same…]

@shoes_off @commuter_dirge Parents are such liars. And then they blame the kids for growing up wrong.

@middleclassgirl @SnarkyPlatypus “Dakota Fanning” always sounds like an uncomfortable sexual act banned in six southern states. :/

via Twitter Web Client

@fictillius Well they were four widely-spaced shots, so by your scenario there’s four down in the next street.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

For the moment I’ll assume those four gunshots, lacking subsequent screams and shouting, were nothing to worry about.

via Twitter Web Client

@elerimai I’ll have a piece for you, if I ever stop chatting here and saying I have a piece to write. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to elerimai

I shouldn’t have RTd @GreenJ’s comments. :) I actually have a piece to write NOW about Twitter’s role in all this. Going dark.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Gittins on the exotic political dance that is stimulus http://is.gd/j6gB [Disturbing mental image there Let it slide.]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @GreenJ: A quick thought on the bushfire coverage http://bit.ly/Rf7Y [Indeed, Mr Green, have we become ghouls…?]

via Twitter Web Client

Going dark (mostly) for a couple hours as I write and stuff.

via Twitter Web Client

@twitter Enough from me about your FAIL proposed business model. Your service is useful. Just tell me what I need to pay and get on with it.

via Twitter Web Client

@rod3000 Sending Overington into the fire zone is explained this: get the annoying woman out of the office, pray that she has an “accident”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rod3000

@rgillettpr That’s my point. Defining “business” doesn’t reflect usage. That’s why I reckon “freemium” rather than Twitter’s announced plan.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GiantSquidOz

@rbbrown So why is some strange man brining buckets of semen to your office each day? Or have I got that confused?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbbrown

@marclehmann I’m hoping that Twitter’s plans have been “misreported”. That sort of thing has been known to happen.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@marclehmann Re Twitter, yes, is @stephenfry a “brand”? Am I business when I ask for advice? We ask businesses to be more human on Twitter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@rbbrown There’s NO SUCH THING as “soy milk”. Milk comes from mammaries. Soy is beans. “Random white liquid” isn’t milk. I know: I’m gay.

Wed plan: AM writing for Crikey, podcast recording; PM project management; evening gym/dinner with @SnarkyPlatypus. An indoor desk day.

via Twitter Web Client

@marclehmann Agreed, Twitter should go “freemium” like Flickr. I’m “business” but also personal. Those categories have long blurred.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@garthk There’s already a working 3rd party Twitter-to-SMS service. I forget its name but I’m sure I’ll be told momentarily.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@collinmullane Yep, I’m one of Aust’s most prolific Twitterers. http://is.gd/j5fv That site frames it was “waste”. I reckon it’s valuable.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to PolemiCol

@middleclassgirl Pls not be talking about dreams, me in them, and “spread” just after we’ve discussed Samantha Fox kthxbai.

@SnarkyPlatypus Hélas, aucun de nous ne peut l’expérience de la douleur de Samantha Fox de la même manière. Ce temps est passé.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@GerardHenderson Good morning. My deepest apologies, but I am afraid that I may have mis-typed during my goodnight greetings to you. Sorry.

via Twitter Web Client

@GeordieGuy @Aussiemandias Thank you. :) I have a lot of writing to do today, some of it with sensitivity. I hope I didn’t burn it all then.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Mes douleurs physiques. Chaque partie de celui-ci. Et toi? Comment le basketball?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Emerges. Grey clouds. Gusting winds. Shivering trees. Cats washing, but impatient as they want their food. The heavy jets roar. Wednesday.

via Twitter Web Client

… and it’s goodnight from him. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@GerardHenderson I suppose it’s past your bedtime alreaqdy, but… Good night Gerard.

via Twitter Web Client

@GreenJ That’s actually the third time (at least!) that I’ve suggested dressing up for you. This is a worry. For both of us.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@ashadihopper I suspect the currawong is smarter than the cats. He/she checks that they’re asleep. They’ve no hope of catching a currawong.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ashadihopper

@GreenJ The problem about me tweeting at such high volume is that I don’t know what I should be adding sparkles to now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@SnarkyPlatypus Please do not be sending me private messages about Wilson Tuckey and Germaine Greer “combining energies” kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The cats are queueing up to bed fed. Little do they know, I fed the last of their food to the wild currawong.

@SnarkyPlatypus I assume this is the black minion’s outfit you refer to? http://is.gd/j08u

@stemcd When I worked for ABC Radio my job included “”awareness of current trends in popular culture”, so media input was tax deductible.
