@pyrmontvillage If it’s “absurd” to pay for as taxpayer and then to use it, do you also think it “absurd” to pay for public transport?

And now we are mobile. @ApostrophePong and I will be at the Marrickville Markets in about 10 minutes.

@sicsicsic Oh, you think US politics is somehow about evidence and doing what’s best? How sweet.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to captain_beef

I’ve just been informed that @ApostrophePong and I will go to Marrickville Organic Markets soon-ish. Once he’s photographed his ablutions.

@sicsicsic Agreed. That CNN is running a lot of review-drug-law stuff is intriguing. I wonder if there are “other connections”?

@jmacmullin AFAIK there’s no @fakestilgherrian. And neither should there be.

@ApostrophePong I think the likay-as-monster-hunters is the go. The gay love themes have all been done, and usually badly.

@BernardKeane “FauxX People” sounds like a movie title. Starring Jamie Foxx. A romantic comedy.

@trib I use the Postalicious plug-in for WordPress to post from Delicious, but I don’t let it post automatically for various reasons.

@cebitaus2009 O hai. The word “technology” is mis-spelt in your bio, and “Australasia’s” should be a possessive, like what I just wrote.

via Twitter Web Client

I’ve decided I won’t be following any more “FakeX” people for all values of X. Unless you’re a truly brilliant satirist, the joke’s over.

Mind you, the fact that a company released an internal policy is hardly the most important world event this Monday.

@Nickhodge Indeed. With Telstra’s finger in so many orifi…erm, pies affecting so many Australians, a tough call. Not unique to Telstra.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@delic8genius I look forward to your blog post with antique eagerness then! :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to delic8genius

@Nickhodge Yes, Telstra’s policy is long-winded. Inevitable? But 3.2, “Telstra related issues”: Where does the boundary lie in a big corp?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@delic8genius I ask ‘cos the whole “it’s terrible about the celebs and marketers” thing, well, I just don’t see them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to delic8genius

@delic8genius But… How does it affect YOUR usage of Twitter if others with whom you don’t connect are using it THEIR way?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to delic8genius

Rather than a half-arsed SMH story on Telstra’s social media rules http://is.gd/tkAE why not read them? http://is.gd/tlLS

@SnarkyPlatypus Il n’ya qu’une seule explication possible de votre dernière vidéo. http://is.gd/tlwr

@sylvestor Agreed. http://is.gd/hSP is indeed useful, though in most startups http://is.gd/tlvv might be even more relevant.

@SnarkyPlatypus Et maintenant, nous avons besoin pour effectuer un rituel de purification. Un puissant rituel. http://is.gd/eOLX

@SnarkyPlatypus OK, vous avez gagné. Mais seulement parce que le poisson gonflable est équipée d’un garçon dans une bulle.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je ne fais pas confiance dans le monde un lundi. Je ne fais pas confiance dans les jugements des autres.

I’m fairly sure that Monday is inevitable. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. [exit]

@mfarnsworth And that just goes to prove that you CAN get credit.

@merejames @geehall1 @mfarnsworth Look, I did steal that line from Stephen Colbert. See, I’m honest.

@DavidFeng The good thing about learning “The Song of the Cao Ni Ma” is that I have no idea what it means. ;)

@DavidFeng I’ve been told that the Ranty Seagull is more “appropriate” for me. Though I did like the . I was even learning the song.

@kcarruthers Most mental institutions have a special ward for users of alpha software. http://is.gd/teNq

@josh909 Gmail says “beta”, so yes, same applies. I think “beta” has a well-established meaning: “It may not work, use at your own risk.”

Amount of sympathy I have for people who use beta software and then have it fail in some way: ZERO.

@pyrmontvillage Does $20 have a particular significance beyond a personal price point (which is as fair a reason as any)?
