Meanwhile Triple J continues its “Where have you been naked?” phone-in. Taxpayers’ money at work, people! Revel in it!

via Twitter Web Client

There’s a comment on Crikey http://tr.im/uxh7 which says Dept of Community Services wants to speak with the mother.

via Twitter Web Client

Mind you, Triple J presenters now talking about swimming naked at Byron Bay after Splendour in the Grass ain’t much of a moral high ground.

via Twitter Web Client

@BaneAu I’ve NOT listened to the audio. I kinda don’t want to. But yes, a mother putting her daughter into that situation is unspeakable.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BaneAu

@gabfran Hah! Beating @australian isn’t hard. The 2Day FM story is leading the news on Triple J this afternoon too. Schadenfreude FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ShoesandYoga

RT @SoniaLastrega: Myer, Sanitarium, Vodafone and Fosters all seem to be proud 2DayFM advertisers. Guess they should expect some mail.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I dunno. Once you imagine that lie-detector interrogations are “fun” and “entertainment”, you’ve lost your ethical compass.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@bjkraal Actually. ABC 702 Sydney has a BIGGER audience overall than 2Day FM. http://tr.im/ux1J

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bjkraal

There IS Oscar Wilde’s point in there about people talking about you, true. Even so.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @bjkraal: The problem, of course, is that 2Day wants you to hate them. If they were uncontroversial they’d rate like ABC Local Radio.

via Twitter Web Client

Mind you, if a flash mob DID want to demand the sacking of 2Day FM’s team, they’re in World Square. http://tr.im/uwVV

RT @viveka: Why not a “rape Sandilands” game? Oh, I know why not. OK then. [There goes my lunch.]

via Twitter Web Client

To cheer everyone up, William Shatner reads Sarah Palin’s resignation speech as a Beat poem. No, really. http://tr.im/uwT0

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Emesel: Flash developers? Can’t we just organise a FLASH MOB and do it for real? [I’d never say that. Incitement is a crime. Alas.]

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Exactly. It goes beyond the stupidity of commercial radio. It goes to the very core of being a member of the human race.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

If there’s any Flash developers with an hour free, build a “kick Sandilands in the head” game. Stick ads on it. You’ll make a fortune today.

via Twitter Web Client

So who actually advertises on 2Day FM, that they want to promote their business in the context of interrogating children as “entertainment”?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Colgo: Kyle Sandilands post includes link to audio of the incident. http://bit.ly/v0KdV [We can all enjoy the torture now.]

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders Yes, it would’ve been hell to “deal with” in a live studio. But they decided to interrogate a child as “entertainment”.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers @gabfran Crikey wrote about Kyle & Jackie O’s lie detector upfuckage too. http://tr.im/uwKR

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, I do SO like the concept of the “Judy Garland Trail MIx”! http://tr.im/uwDD

Missed this one originally: “Humans prefer cockiness to expertise” http://tr.im/uwzf Explains a bit about social media “expertise”.

Also, nominations for “Cnut of the Week” are already open http://tr.im/uuSf ‘cos it’s a special “Stilgherrian Live” this Friday afternoon.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Maybe Chris Brown’s record company (Universal?) is behind the whole thing… [Oh, an even better conspiracy theory!]

via Twitter Web Client

@babycakesjase Well if Thursday becomes recreation instead of work, I shall consult your schedule. :)

@babycakesjase The “thingie” in Canberra? Is that something you get from Fyshwick?

@mpesce If that music’s in your head, you need to video to go with it. http://tr.im/uw1S

@stephenconroy Ah, Minister! You should already understand that you don’t need to READ something to be an EXPERT on it!

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders [smirks] Oh too true! “Thought Leadership” = Twitter and a subscription to TechCrunch. Well played, Sir!

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce This is not a Brazil-esque joke. Download the PDF. http://tr.im/uvTX Page 7.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

There’s a recipe for spontaneity! Also ‘Thought leadership (or “link blogging”)’. [smirks] So “thought leadership” is a Delicious account?

@chieftech There’ll always be content gathered into pre-trustworthy’d brands, but the forms and scale may change dramatically.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chieftech

@chieftech Well, I don’t have a Crikey “column”, I pitch stories individually, or they get commissioned… but…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chieftech

@chieftech Anderson has points later (nothing new, just the themes which ended up in his book), but he began with wankery for shock value.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chieftech

@chieftech The wankery is choosing not to use the meaningful words people have for what he’s discussing, but then not providing others.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chieftech

@SnarkyPlatypus Cet après-midi, nous avons les répétitions de “Stilgherrian Live” à Metro Screen.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@wraptinweb Re that article, Anderson’s being a wanker. “I don’t use words ‘journalism’ or ‘media’ or ‘news’, there are no new words’.” Bah!

I’m going to abandon you all now. Just tickle my tummy and call me Kyle. [exit]

That special William Shatner edition of “Stilgherrian Live” is at http://tr.im/uzo3, should anyone care.

via Twitter Web Client

@einspruch There’s a reason there’s an entire episode of “Stilgherrian Live” dedicated to William Shatner. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to einspruch

@einspruch Oh yes, I had previously mentioned Mr William Shatner reading Ms Palin’s words. http://adjix.com/ivb7 It’s rather sweet.

Yes, Artemis, it’s a basket of freshly washed and dried clothes. I assume that’s why you’re taking control of it for sleeping purposes?

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve just escaped Antony Green, gaining a detailed knowledge of voting patterns in rural Queensland.

Uhoh. Antony Green has found me. This could go… in any direction.

@SnarkyPlatypus I know what my ideal working environment is, but I’m not saying.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@yin_yin Maybe your computer should be called “ranga” rather than “ranka”. Maybe that’s just me.

@marclehmann Heh. All is OK. I may manage a program Thursday night anyway. But Friday arvo is the key one for Cnutly nominations.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@marclehmann I may still try to do something Thursday night at 9.30pm, but I’m still juggling schedules.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@marclehmann Erm, no. “Stilgherrian LIve” is NOT tonight. It’s only Wednesday. But, the program is Friday 2pm this week. http://tr.im/uyd5

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@TunaCrust Well, the “Cnut” may be obvious TODAY, but by the time the program airs 2pm Friday, anything could happen.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TunaCrust

Is this a good time to remind people that nominations are open for “Cnut of the Week”? http://tr.im/uuSf

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Does have any sort of lie detector technology on tonight? It’s all the rage, apparently. And I DO mean “rage”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@stilgherrian @mariekehardy Oh absolutely! EVERYONE involved should be shredded. But don’t JUST blame the presenters.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Please. No. The hashtag is something we seriously do now wish to see. Unless…

@ApostrophePong The hashtags I’ve seen is , which is fair enough but misses the point.

@SMinney Hey, I’m no innocent here! A couple of my recent Crikey pieces have been pure trolling.

@docbaty Huh? Michael Jackson’s dead? How? When?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to docbaty

I mean, FFS! I’ve just resorted to trolling the Crikey comment stream. I’d troll The Punch’s too, but they’re self-trolling. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

I’m over criticising 2Day FM. It’s been hours. I need a new populist meme to talk about so I still seem connected. Any suggestions?

via Twitter Web Client

@NereadersDigest You’re right, not blaming presenters is Nuremberg Defence. Yet 2Day FM will just hire new muppets if we blame the muppets.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NereadersDigest

@feebsquared @mariekehardy No, don’t blame Kyle and Jackie O, they’re just the monkeys. Blame the producer and management.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to feebsquared

@ApostrophePong I will bring both collared shirt and good t-shirts to the rehearsals and the producer can pick.

@ApostrophePong For Friday’s program, do I have to wear clothes?

via Twitter Web Client

@Tsagadai Oh I have nothing against naked people. But is this the best our national broadcaster can do?

I see the Daily Telegraph, as ever, isn’t pre-judging the 2Day FM dtory and lets us decide for ourselves how to emote. http://tr.im/uxss

@thomasrdotorg Why even take nominations for “Cnut”? Because the whole point of life is adhering to repetitive pointless rituals.

@ApostrophePong OK, I might therefore close “Cnut of the Week” nominations at midnight, but will confirm that at lunchtime.
