@unsungsongs Awesome! I just saw that yesterday’s @firstdogonmoon cartoon referred to John Faulkner as a “slim-hipped hipster doofus”!

I’m not being very consistent about tagging everything potentially TOTO-related as . Must. Do. Better.

@ADevenish Admission: I am seriously NOT as across accessibility issues as I should be. I hang my head in shame. A bit.

RT @yin_yin: Why must they put Leonard Cohen songs to anti-smoking ads? It’s like putting Mozart to goatse.

@neerav Is there ANYTHING the Twitterverse can’t do? Also, I’d have guessed that left-to-right readers prefer navigation on the left.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@neerav I dunno that a poll is how to decide “user-friendliness”, but actual A/B testing with users. Self-reporting doesn’t work.

@iain_chalmers Mayhaps “lazy journalist with a deadline”-ness”, yes. Or “overworked” rather than lazy.

@GeordieGuy I think I just called you “parochial” and “selfish”. Shall I pick some further adjectives? :P

Dear News Ltd, you win. It says “Greta Scacchi poses nude to help save the fish” and I clicked through. Happy now? http://tr.im/ocW6

I also see that Mr Ackland’s “Sydney” doesn’t extend east of Kings Cross, west of Pyrmont, south of Surry Hills or north of the Bridge.

via Twitter Web Client

@EmilyCBaxter I think Sydney-bash whinges just reflect the cold weather. A psychiatrist can probably confirm that. ;)

Nice whinge about Sydney losing its soul, Richard Ackland. So what are you DOING about it? http://tr.im/ocF9
