Crikey: Conroy confesses http://is.gd/kCox Censorship of other (non-illegal) content would be determined “on the basis of the trial”.

@mpesce @trib I love the way the article at http://is.gd/kB8P assumes that changes to brain = damage. How about change = evolution?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

RT @crikey_news: Molly Meldrum just confirmed he’s happy to be part of our Oscars Liveblog… which was unfortunately yesterday. [Typical.]

via Twitter Web Client

Ah! “How to Present While People are Twittering” http://is.gd/ky3n A Very Big Hat-Tip to @iain_chalmers. [RT with fixed hat-tip.]

@jeamland OMFGWTFBBQ!!!1!!1!! Christopher Pyne IS Rick Astley! http://is.gd/kuiG

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@Nickhodge Hasn’t Crikey (@firstdogonmoon?) already referred to Julia Gillard “Australia’s most senior ranga”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@JustinBarrie Maybe I just means that Julia Gillard likes it a bit rough. I dare not speculate…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JustinBarrie

Julia Gillard calls Christopher Pyne a mincing poodle. Fair call, I say. Woof. http://is.gd/kBSr

@fictillius They pay by time so I don’t mind. It’s just the stupidity of someone spending time pasting them in, now to undo that work.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

Dear Client, when sending me images to out on your website, why did you put them all into a single Microsoft Word document?

via Twitter Web Client

@paulq Mind you, I work with small clients: processes less formalised than FRPs and tenders etc. Either they want my expertise or not. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulq

@paulq That’s perhaps why I find sales annoying and feel more comfortable with a label like “consultant”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulq

Ah, this curry is from TWO days ago. Excellent.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong So, you REALLY think that a breakfast of leftover curry from yesterday is a good idea before a 4-hour road trip?

via Twitter Web Client

At least the codeine is starting to do its job.

via Twitter Web Client

Noticing that there really isn’t enough time to get everything ready before our departure. Planning FTL.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Et comment es-tu, ma douce Monotreme? Mieux?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Ma gorge est douloureuse. Mes sinus sont remplis à craquer. Mes maux de tête. Et je pars bientôt pour Canberra.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@benraue Which pub is my pub? There’s several, but re http://is.gd/kIs8 I was referring to The Duke on Enmore Road, Sydney.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to benraue

@allidc @trib Dinner has been arranged for tonight in Canberra, it seems. ;) http://is.gd/kwpK

via Twitter Web Client

@atariboy Most people learn to write in kindergarten and primary school, but @trib, well, he was a late starter. ;)

@hopeinhell Today is the “Stilgherrian Live Road Trip” to Yass! http://is.gd/kDKP Less than 3 hours until The Journey begins.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hopeinhell

Emerges. It’s The Big Day! ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@seamus Thank you for putting the weekend’s discussion about Internet filtering on your site. http://is.gd/kDK8

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland I’ve just got to McMenamin’s right-of-reply. Gloves off from the gloves off. She. Is. Full. Of. Shit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@jeamland If McMenamin works full time in this field, and she’s STILL ignorant of the technologies, then she’s a fool.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@jeamland I declared gloves-off time against McMenamin in December. She’s a fraud and a muppet, sucking at the government-grant teat.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

McMenamin’s first paragraph is a lie. ChildWise is NOT the only charity in this field. Save the Children does REAL work. http://is.gd/kDK8

via Twitter Web Client

@rbuerckner Well my journey to “slow, sensible, predictable, boringly matrix like Canberra” will be live on the Internet. http://is.gd/kDKP

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

@jeamland If McMenamin doesn’t know technicals, which she admits, why does she propose a specific technical solution? http://is.gd/kDK8

via Twitter Web Client

P.S. The garlic & rosemary lamb cutlets on the specials board at Kelly’s tonight are awesome. $13.

via Twitter Web Client

(Maybe I should mention that Antony Green is a friend and lives 2 streets from me. We do chat over drinks etc.)

via Twitter Web Client

@RozP To avoid the rockabilly mob, avoid The Duke. To avoid me, avoid Kelly’s. Shut up, Platypus.

via Twitter Web Client

I just saw Antony Green. He didn’t see me, thank the Gods. I avoided being told Every Little Detail of the QLD election.

via Twitter Web Client

@zenvuk True, at least rockabilly at The Duke fits the vibe. Kinda.

via Twitter Web Client

Escaping the rockabillx invasion. King St? Christ, I’d better not end up at That Place again.

via Twitter Web Client

WHO ARE ALL THESE FUCKING PEOPLE IN MY PUB? THIS IS NOT YOUR VILLAGE. WILL YOU ALL JUST FUCK OFF?

via Twitter Web Client

The Duke. Stray Cats are playing the Enmore Theatre tonight. People gather. One expounds loudly the cultural significance of AC/DC. Wanker.

via Twitter Web Client

@plasmaegg Happy to pimp http://Libertus.net. Irene Graham provides the solid core research so opinion-writers can wax lyrical.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@BernardKeane “Tony [Abbott]’s a man of strong emotions, and a declaration of love for the Power Fox might not be far away.” PUHlease!

via Twitter Web Client

OK, I’ve just found something for the “Mincing Poodle” cocktail: Swizzle sticks! http://is.gd/kDhi They’re very, um, tasteful.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce So, the “Mincing Poodle” with Campari would still be like urine, but from someone with syphilis? How… fitting.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Note to fingers: When typing into Google, “mincing” and “minging” are not the same thing.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @raena: Anyone got a good social media bullshit bingo card? [Maybe just run one of @SilkCharm’s blog posts thru Wordle, and print?]

via Twitter Web Client

@commuter_dirge Oh! A “Mincing Poodle” cocktail! Excellent. It’d have to be urine-coloured, I reckon. Maybe half a shot of spirits, no more.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to commuter_dirge

RT @jeamland: Waiting for the phrase “mincing the poodle” to enter the Australian political lexicon.

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… Conflicting information. I choose the information which best fits my desires. That’s called “evidence”. See, I’m learning, Conroy!

via Twitter Web Client

OK, walkies time for me. Enmore Rd, King St, that sort of thing. Maybe I’ll find a cure for this headache. Does gin cure headaches?

via Twitter Web Client

Oh poo. An earlier tweet of mine has a superfluous apostrophe. I feel… foolish… vulnerable.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus “The Poodle and the Two Bishops” is another of THOSE titles, eh? And from the Liberal Party in parliament today, you say?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@HappySinger Well, cf ALP’s pre-election policy with it’s undefined “harmful” and “inappropriate” wording. He is, simply, lying about it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to HappySinger

@Pollytics @NewtonMark It’s a bit like setting road transport policies by listening to people who’ve never been in a car or truck.

via Twitter Web Client

@Pollytics @NewtonMark It’s always been clear anecdotally that supporters of “filtering the Internet” are those with least clue about it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Pollytics

@HappySinger Irene Graham’s http://Libertus.net is THE go-to resource for the Australian govt’s censorship “plans”. A bit tl;dr tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to HappySinger

@Warlach It is, of course, rather embarrassing for someone selling print advertising to not know the law and customs of the medium.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@HappySinger For the full drama of what Conroy has said when re what will/won’t be blocked, see http://is.gd/eQBh

via Twitter Web Client in reply to HappySinger

@Warlach Of course it’s a different matter if your publication is a catalog or something which is clearly ALL paid advertising content.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@SnarkyPlatypus I see a new TV special in the making: “Mincing Poodle Smackdown!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Warlach Maybe your position is “Please explain WHY they’re different cases. Also, please sign here saying my advice was not to go ahead.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@Warlach You’re presenting as “journalism” something which is advertising. Plenty of case law on this, inc John Laws “cash for comment”.

via Twitter Web Client

@Warlach Not flagging paid content as advertorial is deceptive conduct under the Trade Practices Act.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh FFS! Just because I point to something, doesn’t mean it’s my job to explain or justify everything in it! I may not even AGREE with it!

via Twitter Web Client

OK, everything for the “Stilgherrian Live Road Trip” to Yass is now running over at http://is.gd/kJgT Plinkies have begun.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nuffle I’m recording a video interview with A Gery Special Geek Girl in Yass, which’ll then be used on Ada Lovelace Day.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Sally_Robertson

New blog post: “Stilgherrian Live Road Trip to Yass” http://is.gd/kJgT We start in half an hour.
