I’ve just been told that because I have the electricity I am “bourgeois”.

RT @kathleen_w: Russian mob blames blackout on Stephen Conroy.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Fifikins: I think the Sydney blackout has something to do with the Anglicans knocking at @stilgherrian’s door. [Obviously.]

I suppose I should have some breakfast.

@rnlrobinson The doorknocking is recent. It’s not “convert the heathen”, but “meet the local community”. Sounds like what they should do.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rnlrobinson

@drunkenmadman @Fifikins thank you for your concern. @stufromoz @adhoctg Hey I was polite to them!

via Twitter Web Client

I must say, the local Anglican church is sending much more attractive chaps around doorknocking these days.

via Twitter Web Client

@websinthe You know I’m really Conroy’s special sock puppet. The one with a special ribbed texture and added factionality.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

@websinthe You’re tempting me to write a piece slagging off ill-informed kiddie-zealots. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

@HappySinger @WarWraith I’ll respond to your points soon. Lotsa comments coming in at http://bit.ly/sZ7TI but I have an interview at 1500.

@duncanriley Don’t forget to trawl Libertus.net for links to key Conroy statements too. Particularly http://bit.ly/1b1w1r

via Twitter Web Client in reply to duncanriley

Oh. I didn’t get my Crikey email reinstated before today’s was emailed. I’ll have to get someone to email their copy for my archive.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Agreed. I’m appalled by the politically naivety and ignorance of many folks using the tag. “RTFM” in politics, too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Tom Worthington’s observations of Bar Camp Canberra 2. Good points re impatience of Young Turks. http://bit.ly/xmJU

@ashermoses If waiting for the trial results is Conroy’s strategy, that’s 4 to 6 more months of being made to look like an idiot.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ashermoses

@shanewilliamson But even if Conroy is “filtered out”, it wasn’t “his” policy. It’s ALP policy. Conroy is not the target, the policy is.

New blog post: “What now for Senator Conroy and the Magic Filter?” http://bit.ly/sZ7TI What do you reckon is Conroy’s exit strategy?

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb That’s the EXACT quote? No “all” or “completely”? Do you have more context?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

RT @bengrubb: “We’ve never claimed the filter would block child pornography: Senator Conroy. [Um, so what IS it for? Make up your mind.]

via Twitter Web Client

Winning friends and influencing people.

@Reemski Hey, Freud’s as good a start as any. He’s discredited. So am I. The food blog remains. What does that say? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Reemski

@Reemski Bah! Posting photos of your food? Please progress past oral stage of online psychosexual development kthxbai. http://bit.ly/2FxkLS

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Reemski

Yes, I tweeted about my breakfast. I am such a loser. At least I didn’t publish a photo of it. That’s truly loserdom.

“COSBA: The government’s Internet filter plans will harm business” http://bit.ly/2odruA Includes comments from me.

via Twitter Web Client

@Mediamum Yes, there is toast. I can also confirm the presence of bacon. And mushrooms. And tomato. And a refrigerator truck.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

Waiting for eggs (scrambled). There may be bacon. And possibly a sausage. You know how these things go.

DBCDE info on Consultative Working Group on Cyber-Safety: http://bit.ly/2jLl4v That says they report back soon. Is my May meeting info bad?

via Twitter Web Client

@ireckon DBCDE has a “Consultative Working Group” on Cyber-Safety, which first meets in May. Yes, test filter before consult. Arse-about.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ireckon

@ireckon The difficulty with politics is that it all has to look like the Minister thought of it himself. Or through a process he set up.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ireckon

@martinlau If cost-benefit analysis has been done, no-one’s seen it. “The filter” was chosen as solution before the problem was defined.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hum_ph

@MediaMook I also see I’ve dropped out of the global Top 500 on Cursebird. http://bit.ly/kuezh I am full of fucking FAIL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MediaMook

Tue plan: A rainy end-of-month, during which I shall retreat to secret locations and send emails; 7.30pm watch SBS Insight on Teh Filterz.

@jimboot I think examples like DRM and TOR, while true, won’t resonate with punters. They hear techblur vs fear-for-children. Latter wins.

@swbs Ah, man! Some days I could strangle clients! I cleared out this week for “urgent” work. Now they’re not ready. Billable hours FTL.

@irldexter [nods] I get that the online conversation evolves the arguments, but I (personally) see too much of that, not enough emerging.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to irldexter

Dear Client, please don’t rush me to get a proposal to you in 2 days if you’re not even going to look at it for 2 weeks. Rude cunts.

via Twitter Web Client

(The brevity of tweets means that I may be talking at cross-purposes here.)

via Twitter Web Client

@irldexter “Activists” can be hyperconnected as they want amongst each other, but unless that’s leveraged into action it’s all just a wank.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to irldexter

@irldexter I’m not sure what point you’re making, but politics IS people. By “real” politics I mean what strategies actually effect change.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to irldexter

New blog post: “The Future was 1993” http://bit.ly/H0nyO Have a listen to some music I “encouraged” into the world.

via Twitter Web Client

@NathanaelB What pisses me off about “activists” is that too many think the adrenalin surge they get from a fight is anything but selfish.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

@NathanaelB The elected politicians are the ones who can effect change. Pissing them off makes them disinclined to help. Human nature.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

@NathanaelB There is a distinct lack of communication between and… well, everyone else. And an ignorance of REAL politics.

@SnarkyPlatypus Est-ce que vous remplissez votre mission d’espoir ou de peur? Est-il neiger?

@SnarkyPlatypus Je pleure l’utilisation incorrecte ou incohérente des majuscules.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il est le dernier jour du trimestre. Il sera … intéressant. Je suis prudent. et vous?

@BernardKeane Oh dear. I have attributed to you words written by the great Mungo Wentworth MacCallum. How careless of me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

Disappearing off grid. Sleep calls. [exit]

@BernardKeane WTF? “Julia Gillard is the secret mistress of Kim Jong-Il”? Well that DOES explain… (Can I have some of what you’re on?)

@kerryank @stinginthetail @smperris You are all sick, sick people. I don’t want to play with you any more.

@mr_billiam Ah no, look, you’re confusing “documentary” with “dromedary”. Again. This MUST stop.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_billiam

Uhoh. It says “Erk Pod episode 174” and guests include “Stilgherrian” and recorded at “Kelly’s On King”. I worry. http://bit.ly/QiplS

via Twitter Web Client

OK, so someone used the word “sprinter” and I read it as “sphincter”. I probably need more sleep.

@firstdogonmoon Thank you for inventing “Captain Nodule and his Intergalactic Sockdrawer of Love”. It was necessary. Very necessary.

@SnarkyPlatypus You realise this means a massive t.A.T.u tribute episode this Thursday night. ;)

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: t.A.T.u have apparently broken up. One pole of the Pseudo-Sapphic Axis is gone :( [Les Veroniques sont désolé!]

via Twitter Web Client

Wow. Great comments on my post “What now for Senator Conroy and the Magic Filter?” http://bit.ly/sZ7TI What is Conroy’s exit strategy?

RT @kalgoorliekid: About to head to Sydney with a rifle and a bag full of snappy one-liners. [See, at least someone’s got some sense.]

@FortuneGrey I was thinking of tweeting via laptop, Bluetooth, 3G phone etc. But then, as I say, I have the electricity.
