@pam_rosengren This is the thing. Adobe’s webinars may well be interactive events with feedback (pace, @vealmince!), but so many are not.

@ApostrophePong Trust no-one. Especially if they’re in your student group project.

@ashermoses Your girlfriend plays “Big Buck Safari”? I could turn… Hang on. That’s wrong in so many ways.

Can anyone tell that my errands got as far as lunch at the pub?

@trib Right. I know where you live and the name(s) of your offspring. You are so fucked.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

So, a “webinar” is just a fuckin’ video. I now declare that anyone using the term “webinar” without irony or ridicule is a wanker.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @martinbarry: [A webinar is] an online video with someone else hogging the remote.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @ssharwood: Webinars are a way to show people PowerPoint and bore them without renting a conference room.

via Twitter Web Client

Also, this is all preparation for my panel discussions at CeBIT. This is going to be fun.

via Twitter Web Client

There’s something mesmerising about watching that lesbian couple play “Big Buck Safari II”. Chicks with guns FTW!

@ThePlasticAge Actually, I think Futuresummit IS a sci-fi convention. Run by Australian fans of the Dalek leader! http://tr.im/l0vX

via Twitter Web Client

OK, I call “emperor’s new clothes”. WTF is a “webinar” and why does it deserve such a fuckwitted neologism?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @duncanriley: Crikey subscribers, be sure to read Brian Mitchell’s more than bizarre rant in the letters section today.

via Twitter Web Client

@dekrazee1 Radio is now seen as a pretty low-grade advertising medium. Whether deserved or not, I’m not sure.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dekrazee1

HOW COME I WASN’T INVITED TO FUTURESUMMIT IN MELBOURNE, YOU PACK OF CUNTS?

RT @Krumpet: Will refer to it as the colgating - gives you a ring of confidence! [Now THAT’S full of WIN!]

Thank you, Crikey! Budget nostalgia: coverage from last year. http://tr.im/l0t4 I’m over the fold at http://tr.im/l0tj

@dekrazee1 Daytime commercial radio has an old audience. Young folk have iPods while they work. It’s all incontinence and impotence.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dekrazee1

@Krumpet You wuss! Can’t you say “anal bleaching” out loud?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to HansOrph

Apparently I should call a 1800 number and ask about nasal delivery technology. Ah, talk radio! This is your Golden Age!

@theburgerman Only the SECOND-strangest hashtag today? Which was the strangest?

RT @crikey_news: Our man in Canberra, @BernardKeane, gives a pre-Budget tour of Parliament House.http://is.gd/yGmg Just like The Shining!

Sen Conroy is in bubble-cheery mode. Talks up Sen Lundy as a champion of ICT in Australia. Please don’t smile like that.

via Twitter Web Client

Jackie Taranto acknowledges Senator @KateLundy for her help before introducing Senator Conroy.

Rees also announces broadband testbed projects with NICTA/CSIRO to explore uses for NBN. More Conroy-sucking.

via Twitter Web Client

Rees announces formation of NSW Broadband Implementation Task Force, including state’s Chief Scientist and CIO.

via Twitter Web Client

Premier Rees sucks up to Senator Conroy big time to get the NBN HQ in Sydney. Audience laughs good-naturedly.

via Twitter Web Client

If “every event will have a Twitter wall”, where’s the one for THIS event, eh? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Someone wake me when the politicians stop talking sweet generalities and big-noting the fact that they did their job.

via Twitter Web Client

Rees announces that partnership with CeBIT is renewed for another 3 years.

via Twitter Web Client

Premier Nathan Rees welcomes us to Sydney, “the gateway to Australia’s digital economy”. What a wank!

via Twitter Web Client

“All events at will have a live Twitter wall.”

via Twitter Web Client

“Thank you, Minister, and we acknowledge your great government, thank you.”

via Twitter Web Client

“Innovation is going to drive the economy”, excited by announcement of National Broadband Network. Starting to sound shrill.

Who imagines that these Rocky-style music video intros for a comference ever impress anyone?

Standing room only for Senator Conroy to launch . Crowd chatter and cheesy noodly jazz.

@GuyKawasaki I agree, the value-add is “curation” of links by known people. But, for me, that’s just not something I want in Twitter. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GuyKawasaki

@trib @GuyKawasaki Of course, others will dislike my stream of personal trivia and weirdness, and wish I stuck to serious things. :)

via Twitter Web Client

Fair warning: I’ll tweet a LOT from CeBIT over the next few days. http://twittersnooze.com to unfollow or filter out tagged tweets.

via Twitter Web Client

Tue plan: 0800+ CeBIT; middle-day meeting (ssh!); MOAR CeBIT including cocktails; 1930 Crikey liveblog re Federal Budget.

@GuyKawasaki “Just” links is a blog post I might read on the weekend, not something I want instantly via Twitter. YMMV, or course. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GuyKawasaki

@GuyKawasaki Whereas if there was more of the Insightful Mr Kawasaki, or WHY the link piqued your interest, that I might follow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GuyKawasaki

@GuyKawasaki O hai! Re “not human”: I don’t Twitterfollow you ‘cos personally I links without added insight are of little value to me…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GuyKawasaki

@sylmobile Well, one advantage of being up so early will be seeing Sydney Harbour in the early morning light. ;)

Did you know an Australian IT Industry Innovation Council was announced 5 May? http://tr.im/l47V

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Wyane: Wankers squared: http://is.gd/yKMJ (“Webinar Solutions”) [Yes, adding meaningless words helps. Not.]

via Twitter Web Client

@oliyoung But, flaming people is inexcusably poor behaviour, if that happened. Plus just posting links? Where’s the value-add?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@oliyoung I wouldn’t call @GuyKawasaki posting links “spamming”. Tthat’s all, say, @BBCNews does. But most expect humans be human.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

I have an early start in the morning. This calls for an efficient [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@oliyoung I’m not sure that I’m “loveable” though. Others may have an opinion on this.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@agent_x @oliyoung That’s right. I followed @GuyKawasaki for a day but wasn’t seeing a human. He should just use Delicious.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to agent_x

Home can this one cat can take up three-quarters of the bed? And how does he go from washing to dead-asleep in 30 seconds?

via Twitter Web Client

@neerav If I’m a rogue agent, then I can take anywhere I want? Can it be to Amsterdam?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

Gawd, I’ve almost tweeted as much as @GuyKawasaki! http://tr.im/l19K I will resist further analysis.

via Twitter Web Client

@neerav I still don’t know where is taking me. I don’t think I find out tomorrow either. It’s all a MYSTARY!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@neerav I am but a puppet at the HQ tomorrow. I’ll be coming there 1100 after the CeBIT official opening at 0800.

@SilkCharm How can you “miss out” on a email? They send 400 bazillion of the fuckers!

@kcarruthers Oh! Did I forget to organise myself into the “exclusive” welcome at NSW Government House? Botherama.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@andrewbarnett There’s no significance. It’s just a (to me) amusing picture of a goat. And yes, @EmperorNorton, it’s a diseased goat.

Kudos to Dick Smith Broadway. Out of stock, but directed me to a competitor who could help. Noted.

Oh dear. I just used Latin in a tweet. What a wanker am I!

I’ve been having breakfast with @voirol, hence the gap in tweets. It’s still pretty early here.

Conroy: In Budget, tonight “You will see the foundations and the drive of the Rudd government to deliver in the digital economy.”

via Twitter Web Client

Sen Conroy implies that he was blown away by the ICT innovation he saw at CeBIT in Hannover. This should be explored more IMO.
