RT @BrendanB: Some people exist only to argue, whether those whom they spar against exist or not doesn’t seem to matter. [Amen, brother!]

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders Agreed, case for nuclear power is very poor once all costs are taken into account. Ian Lowe’s “Reaction Time” covers that.

via Twitter Web Client

@paulwallbank My view is that anyone who uses any of those terms non-ironically immediately brands themselves as incapable of real analysis.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

@paulwallbank Ms Devine, like so many of her ilk, create straw men and given them names, “Greenies”, “left glitterati”, to argue against.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

@paulwallbank An example of that is, say, the knee-jerk reaction by The Greens against anything labelled “nuclear”. http://is.gd/hLFS

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

@paulwallbank It’s about what may once have been analysis being reduced to slogans, but then the slogans are all that’s left.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

@barrysaunders I should say something wanky about politicals being clustered viewpoints in multi-dimensional space but maybe I’ll just wank.

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders You’re right. The Left are just as bad. The whole Left-Right thing is at least a half a century out of date.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @Nickhodge Increasingly I get the impression they’re all just too fucking stupid to adapt to any kind of change.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @Nickhodge What is it about the political far right? Always re-fighting battles from 40y ago, not looking to the future!

via Twitter Web Client

Another NSW politician demonstrates tact and sensitivity. http://is.gd/jyq3 David Clarke MLC? Who?

via Twitter Web Client

@jmacmullin For the PolTech Forum, just leave the ticket code blank. It’s a generic sign-up form and some events have coded discounts etc.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jmacmullin

@kdelarue Thanks for the pointer to @jamesmalach. Yes, definitely weird. This is A Good Thing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kdelarue

@GreenJ Excellent. I shall update the story with a couple facts from the weekend. Also there may be a nice follow-up tomorrow. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@BreakfastNews How come you read out the phone number but not the Twitter address? Blind people use Twitter too! ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Tous mes tweets sont respectables. De plus, ils étaient les seuls tweets que les @BreakfastNews reçues.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@R_Chirgwin @renailemay Hey, hey, I just retweeted it! It’s of interest. Just ‘cos you “journalists” are feeling nervous… ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis connu beaucoup de plaisir! Mes tweets venons de lire à haute voix à la télévision. Merci, @BreakfastNews.

Last night’s Twitterstream: Susan Renouf, Pseudo Echo, The Wombles, @HappySinger. Wow, that sounds like some party!

via Twitter Web Client

@BreakfastNews Besides, Adelaide IS a “pissant town”. I should know, I lived there most of my life. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

@BreakfastNews Since when does the job title “football coach” require you to suppress your opinions of the city you work in?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

Emerges. There appears to be a number of misconceptions which now need to be cleared up.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting Quite frankly, I have no idea.

via Twitter Web Client

wow I think a womble just walked in… might be going dark for a while.. I think the photos will be on aca or tt tomorrow night…

via Twitter Web Client

@Jay3199 you spend enough time around garbage dumps, you start having… thoughts..

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl wall-to-wall orgies. i mean, who wouldn’t do Red?

via Twitter Web Client

y’know, the wombles must have had a lot of sex.

via Twitter Web Client

Don’t believe anything, it’s all fake.

via Twitter Web Client

As yet, he has refused our calls to play “Tusk”

via Twitter Web Client

The current folk singer who is not @HappySinger is like Fleetwood Mac - equally as crap, but perhaps less popular

via Twitter Web Client

Dave The Happy Singer is fucking awesome!

via Twitter Web Client

@spyjournal Yes, Pseudo Echo could never live up to “Sha La La La”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to spyjournal

Apparently, the Vengaboys are equivalent to Pseudo Echo

via Twitter Web Client

I am gutless apparently according to consensus of inebriated Twitterers on this table

via Twitter Web Client

The Age of Reason is starting. By a man wearing purple sequins

via Twitter Web Client

The Veronicas sound like Dawn French apparently

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl Some things in the world should be kept SEKRIT

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@middleclassgirl Yes, a tsunami of pseudo-sapphicness is upon us. I will be drowned in a torrent of oestrogen flushes

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

I allegedly didn’t see this, but convenient memory gaps are my sort of thing

via Twitter Web Client

@Pollytics I am somewhat intrigued by how you made that connection

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Pollytics

No, nobody has taken over the @stilgherrian account *hides poisonous spur*

via Twitter Web Client

well, shouldn’t we really think about the children?

via Twitter Web Client

perhaps this internet filtering isn’t such a bad idea after all?

via Twitter Web Client

OH: “Quite frankly, you can’t go wrong with a Nazi joke.”

via Twitter Web Client

RT @middleclassgirl: Actually, I think that The Veronicas would beat anyone in a scrag fight, even t.A.T.u. [YEAH, AUSSIE PRIDE FTW!]

via Twitter Web Client

@seancarmody I think you can manage to make the epic journey from Petersham one day… when the new lad’s able to join us?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

Upstairs at The Afternoon Office™ (AKA Kelly’s On King, Newtown) with @SnarkyPlatypus waiting for @wolfcat and the rest of the posse.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. Gym/lunch with @SnarkyPlatyous. Don’t forget @wolfcat in SYD at Kelly’s On King, Newtown, from 1600. @HappySinger performs later.

RT @soundscaper: If Miranda was to take her foot of the exaggerator pedal there might be a clutch of words worth reading.

via Twitter Web Client

@soundscaper Well, as I said the other day, Miranda Devine = Botox + nepotism FTW! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to soundscaper

@rvowles @voirol Yep, welcome to the AFR’s “stop you copying the text” idiocy. They really have no clue.

via Twitter Web Client

@jmacmullin Today’s piece is just a quick contextualizer (!) of who’s in the filter trials, but will explore tech angles further later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jmacmullin

Ben Self, who ran Obama’s online campaign, reckons Internet filtering is “dangerous”. http://is.gd/jD7n

via Twitter Web Client

Curious. Media enquiries to iPrimus re Internet “filtering” are being handled by their legal department. Someone will call back.

via Twitter Web Client

@Centland Which trials are you referring to having happened with iiNet? When? There haven’t been any live trials yet AFAIK.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CentenaryLandsc

Dear Twitterverse, is anyone watching a customer of iPrimus for their ISP needs? Have you been emailed about the filter trials yet.

via Twitter Web Client

@GreenJ Sydney, as I’m sure you’ll agree, is chock full of bastards. And worse. (See also: NSW Labor Party.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@GreenJ Yep, still raining, and they’re predicting heavy rains for tomorrow. Gosford & Katoomba have had 80mm of rain since 9am today!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

Mon plan: A desk day while it rains outside. Some writing, some bookkeeping, some minor tech support, some project coordination.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge It seems @jmacmullin can’t register for the Politics & Technology Forum without a ticket code? Is it full?
