How’s your German? This documentation seems to show a Lenovo laptop and phone seized in Wikileaks.de police raid. http://is.gd/oO3F

@noblemonkey Whenever I see a bio labelled “entrepreneur” I want to ask “name the successful businesses you started which still run”.

@jg_rat If you sell me the knife, I’ll sell you exclusive coverage of what I do with it. Along with old photos of a random naked person.

@middleclassgirl OK, I admit it, that’s a pretty special song. And, erm, costume. http://tinyurl.com/dk2v5f

@ApostrophePong cleverly posted his Mardi Gras photos in reverse order. Today, building the floats. http://is.gd/oNKT

I’m starting to see too many new Twitterfollowers who clearly only want to sell me something. I’m getting stabby.

@viveka I suspect it pays not to over-analyse the ABC’s question at http://is.gd/oEQR Nevertheless I shall liveblog it.

@jstevenskramer Dunno exactly what we’re doing at CeBIT, but it’s part of the conference stream.

via Twitter Web Client

@GeordieGuy I am disappointed, Grass Mud Horse is our friend and ally.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GordyPls

@schmediachick My point was, in fact, that with many new forms of media, should indeed look at that, without our paranoia.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to schmediad

@schmediachick I was just describing history. What’s now was, in the age of newspapers-only, “clippings services”.

@matthewlandauer I do want to visit Melbourne soon. But just for “Q&A”? http://is.gd/jgrP Nah, not on my budget, alas.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to matthewlandauer

@mpesce WTF? Our cleaners do the entire house in 45 to 50 minutes. Two days for your shoebox flat? WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@Nickhodge @SilkCharm @kcarruthers So, we’re all doing the CeBIT social media session in Sydney. How much bafflement shall we cause?

via Twitter Web Client

Why do I have an email thread with the subject “Lyndsay Lohan’s Tits”? Oh. Yes. It’s a Crikey thing.

via Twitter Web Client

@heavyphotons Agreed, the rules they are a’changing. Ephemeral conversations are now archived and indexed.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Hey, I didn’t ask the question! It’s the ABC’s question. Ask them. Or watch my liveblog on the day. Sheesh!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

ABC forum “Quality Journalism: How to pay for it? Does it matter?” next Thu 2 April. http://is.gd/oEQR I’ll be covering it for Crikey.

via Twitter Web Client

@matthewlandauer Tomorrow night’s “Q&A” live with Senator Conroy is in Melbourne. http://is.gd/jgrP Alas, I won’t be there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to matthewlandauer

@GreenJ Have you plugged it in? Is it turned on? Are you sure you’ve spelled it properly?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@heavyphotons Media monitoring already covers talkback radio, and Whirlpool isn’t much different. Now if it were a PRIVATE thing… ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@heavyphotons The key word is “public”. Whirlpool is public, anyone can watch. If the Minister can’t be there, he gets someone to summarise.

via Twitter Web Client

@smperris @heavyphotons The Wikipedia article on “Media monitoring service” is about right. http://is.gd/oPvP

via Twitter Web Client

RT @middleclassgirl: There is something seriously wrong with my mental state. [In other news, Sun rises in east, water flows downhill, etc.]

via Twitter Web Client

@alpharia LOL! Agreed, that IS a useful image. I could have used that this morning. http://tinyurl.com/cszbgy

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alpharia

@heavyphotons Agreed, “media monitoring” sounds nasty. But it’s just the modern term for what was called a “press clippings service”.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong I haven’t eaten at Clem’s Chicken on KIng St in YEARS. It sounds like I was right for once.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@alpharia Your last link had “This image or video has been removed or deleted.” Oopsie.

@barrysaunders This is media. It’s ALL in the framing. ;)

RT @wikileaks: Australian government admits Wikileaks censorship lists probably accurate after all. http://is.gd/oPdO

@willhughes I was eating the satay seafood noodle soup at Happy Chef on King St, Newtown.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

@benmoretti It’s not tofu. Altogether too granular and pasty. Like a child’s poo after they’ve been eating crushed peanuts and vegemite.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Nickhodge: @kcarruthers totally wore me out last night. [Please insert your entendres here.]

via Twitter Web Client

Awaiting noodles, wontons and whatever the brown floating stuff is.

@firstdogonmoon Oh, apart from the continual pain, endless work stresser and advancing senility, I’m fabulous. You?

via Twitter Web Client

Mind you, Marilyn’s comment “stop whining about the fucking pissant rockets” and “time you grew up” outdoes mine. ;) http://is.gd/oOLi

@BiteTheDust I do indeed like (some) Aboriginal art for the “perceptual cartography” aspects. I’ve almost been in tears over some pieces.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

@barrysaunders Yeah “monitor” is a scary word. If it were part of an “engagement” strategy, though, people would be much happier.

via Twitter Web Client

@michaelmeloni Yeah, it’s my reply to comments by Verity Pravda and “Mel Richardson” at http://is.gd/oOLi … sorry @GreenJ.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

Strange Maps: “The World As Seen From Chang’an Street” http://is.gd/oOKO I’ve always liked “perceptual cartography”.

via Twitter Web Client

I think I may have just been a little too snarky responding to a Crikey commenter. Well, fuck them.

via Twitter Web Client

@neil_mc @barrysaunders Precisely. Folks want politicians to pay more attention. Some them go all paranoid when they do. Oh well.

via Twitter Web Client

@heavyphotons Whirlpool as “monitored blog” is tinfoil-hat paranoia. It’s standard media-monitoring awareness. http://is.gd/oDwS

RT @rachelhills: A couple of editorial roles going at . DM me if you’re interested.

via Twitter Web Client

@TweetDeck Perhaps an “Are you sure?” confirmation dialog on “Clear all tweets” would be A Good Thing. Le Sigh. [Yes, I did.]

via Twitter Web Client

@twoscomplement The rumour mills and armchair lawyers will be running amok now. ;) Dear World, German law may differ from yours.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to twoscomplement

@trib Maybe we should all now re-voice other TVCs with John Farnham and send them to Saatchi. A Flood of Lame.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@skywkr I don’t see anything which links German Wikileaks raid to Australia. The Danish, Norwegian and Thai lists were also leaked.

via Twitter Web Client

@alpharia If the German police have indeed not followed protocol, it seems an amazingly silly stuff-up on such a high-profile case.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alpharia

Wikileaks’ media release on police raid. http://is.gd/oOcp Reppe refused to sign search protocol due to inconsistencies.

via Twitter Web Client

@alpharia [nods] Just from the smattering of German words I know, it looks pretty standard: “We searched, we took these items.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alpharia

@noblemonkey Hello. You already know the answer to your own question. http://is.gd/oO7A Please hang your head in shame now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to noblemonkey

@raena @trib Who is it more of an indictment of, though? Saatchi & Saatchi? John Farnham? Out of work assassins everywhere?

via Twitter Web Client

@closetgeekshow If you’re interested in more, I’ve been covering AU Internet censorship for 18mo. Nothing indicates DE raids relate to AU.

via Twitter Web Client

@closetgeekshow Also, the Internet IS global. That’s kinda the point. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to closetgeekshow

@closetgeekshow Um, there’s nothing in the DE Wikileaks raid to indicate it was related to the Australian leak: NO, DK, TH lists leaked too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to closetgeekshow

@ssharwood A show of me watching Conroy might be boring. ;) I’ll look at other suggestions later, I must write for now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

@Cocodmonkey Q&A is podcast/iView’d anyway. It’s not about me watching it later but the audience clash. [shrugs] Will figure later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cocodmonkey

Hmmm… How will I handle “Stilgherrian Live” tonight when I also want to watch “Q&A” featuring Senator Conroy?

via Twitter Web Client

Thu plan: AM writing, probably for Crikey; lunch somewhere; PM project management, desk work etc; 9.30pm AEDT “Stilgherrian Live”?

@mpesce Your “G’morning, all. Another beautiful day…” seems… uncharacteristic. Or have you been inhaling the cleaning products again?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Are you channelling “The Prisoner” this week?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@davesag Indeed, I think if anyone’s needed some reading this morning, looking up Grace Hopper is worthwhile.

OK, bedtime for me. But I think a repeat link to the “Conroy: separated at birth” photo is needed. Just ‘cos. http://is.gd/o95Q [exit]

@Nickhodge I’ve been featured in a “choose your own adventure” book. Apparently “a huge stilgherrian” emerges from a swamp.

@johnhalton True. All cartography is perceptual. See also Jorge Luis Borges and Umberto Eco. ;)
