Apparently I’ll be in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania from 27 June for Project . That means departing Sydney 25 or 26 June. http://tr.im/nZ4z

@kcarruthers It’ll be a few days before I get my SoGikII presentation online. It’ll need a few fixes to deal with poor lighting.

@shermozle There’s a fine piece at http://tr.im/o633 arguing that newspapers should give up reporting last night’s news.

Australian company doing mobile payments: mHITs. Not much availability yet, it seems. http://tr.im/o61K Hat-tip RT @joshuamck.

@ADevenish I was thinking just that. Radio for the Print Handicapped dies when its last pre-Internet listeners die. Sad, bu I suspect true.

via Twitter Web Client

@awrd @jason_a_w Indeed, a nice mix of stories. But “known simply as Stilgherrian”? Like you’re “known as Andrew Davies”? It IS my name. ;)

@ADevenish Just thinking, tho. Isn’t Radio for the Print Handicapped dead when we have the Internet and voice synthesis?

via Twitter Web Client

@Rubbachook @ADevenish Of course, I destroy my own argument by using Twitter to tweet what’s on the radio. ;)

Idiot! Jerry Watkins listing current apps that don’t “need” high-speed broadband, forgetting that apps won’t appear until the network does.

via Twitter Web Client

@Rubbachook My point is that the fast medium of radio needs to be innovating. Reading newspapers seems cheap, lazy and unimaginative.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Rubbachook

@ADevenish I was indeed thinking that “reading the papers” is exactly Radio for the Print Handicapped. Best use of Radio National? [shrugs]

India’s DatNet: Wi-Fi equipped bus transfers data from villages as it drives thru. Killer app: shopping! Bus delivers orders.

“Kenya has more advanced mobile phone services than we do [in the US].” Can pay taxi fares by SMS!

@deanlk I’m not only listening to Radio National right now, I’m recording it and taking notes. RealPlayer into Audio Hijack Pro FTW!

Thu plan: Another desk day, plodding through too many tasks and not freezing and not becoming annoyed; gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus.

Oh! On radio someone’s reading what the newspapers say. Leading-edge programming! One of the fastest media tells us about the slowest.

Ron Boswell on Radio National whinging that “none of these green jobs will be in rural Queensland”. Well, if you want work, MOVE!

via Twitter Web Client

Is it just me, or is the message of this tweet being on Twitter just the deepest irony? http://tr.im/o5uA Thanks, @QuakerQuotes.

ActionAid’s @archielaw on ABC Radio “Future Tense” re Project after 0830 (12 mins in Aust’s east). Stream at http://tr.im/o5sB

I think today might be over. [exit]

I’ve gotten carried away editing this video. “A simple top and tail”, I said. Hours later, I’m cutting to close-ups. Sigh.

via Twitter Web Client

@Tarale I’m a tad short on sleep and have lots to do before Africa. Something has to give. “Stilgherrian Live” saves 5 hours.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Tarale

@andrewdotnich @Tarale I can help. There’s a good chance there will NOT be a “Stilgherrian Live” tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@piawaugh Lovely, I shall call you around 3.30pm then, to be on the safe side. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

Editing the video of my SoGikII presentation. Roughly, anyway. Not sure I’ll get it online tonight though. But you never know…

via Twitter Web Client

@ThePlasticAge I’m not sure how to think about the sketch in terms of how OTHERS see it. I can only speak for myself, and I was not shocked.

via Twitter Web Client

New “A Series of Tubes” podcast at http://tr.im/o0fJ with me on Internet filter and stuff, plus Geoff Houston of APNIC. Ta, @R_Chirgwin!

via Twitter Web Client

@ThePlasticAge In such things, I reckon one finds the boundary by pushing across it. Yes, and then get slapped back. But not sacked.

via Twitter Web Client

@ThePlasticAge The Chaser’s sketch may well be seen as distasteful, but one of comedy’s most important roles is challenging assumptions.

via Twitter Web Client

@piawaugh I do want to talk about OLPC and Tanzania, now that may visithad firmed up, but tomorrow? http://tr.im/o0bU

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

@ThePlasticAge Oh I dunno. Distasteful, yes perhaps. So distasteful that people should get sacked? I’m not so sure. http://tr.im/o0ap

@infoholic Certainly once it’s at “public outrage” stage, yes, a scapegoat needs to be found. And yet there’s worse things on TV.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to infoholic

RT @GreenJ: Mark Scott dumps comedy boss! http://bit.ly/IE3JP [What bullshit. The sole problem with that skit was that it ran too long.]

via Twitter Web Client

@piawaugh Thanks! Liveblogging yesterday was fun http://bit.ly/16yAdt A shame you couldn’t stay all day.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

Mobile. Enmore Rd / King St / errands / dialog.

via Twitter Web Client

@GreenJ Apparently, yes. I am, of course, a patient individual who would never complain or snark about any such thing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@laurenbugeja @catri @willhughes Excellent! Completely contradictory advice! God, I love the Internet! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to laurenbugeja

Apparently Crikey hates me. Again.

via Twitter Web Client

@willhughes I think so too. I shall mail my passport to [Company Name] in Melbourne. Very reassuring. Not.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

RT @bryceroney: I just like the fact that the Tanzanian Consulate’s web page is titled “Welcome to [Company Name]”, [Rem, indeed! LOL!]

via Twitter Web Client

@rbuerckner I don’t think eastern Africa is up to eVisas yet. Some other development priorities. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

This says I get a visa in Tanzania. http://twurl.nl/k7wfgs TZ consulate says get it first. http://tr.im/nZ7s Who should I believe?
