@fictillius Look, blame the Walkley Foundation for me being in Canberra. It IS their fault. Srsly.

@firstdogonmoon Why if Godwin Gretsch eating a wombat?

If I ask about the stupid army helmet avatar thing, I’ll appear out of touch, so I won’t. But I will say “stupid” again. And “webinar”.

via Twitter Web Client

I need to increase my income substantially. I think I’ll practice saying the word “webinar”.

@ApostrophePong Well King O’Malley’s in Canberra is charging $6.90 for a pint of Kilkenny, compared with $5.50 in our patch. Poo bum widdle.

And in Crikey today: “Elections slip out of newspapers” http://tr.im/vH3o (I think that one’s behind the paywall.)

via Twitter Web Client

Meanwhile, me from Crikey on Tuesday: “eCrime: the bad guys pwn the internet” http://tr.im/vH2R Contains only one federal crime (oops).

via Twitter Web Client

@Jester_Jeff I have indeed ended up at King O’Malley’s and substituted gin with KIlkenny. Suitable quiet, even downstairs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jester_Jeff

Civic, looking for somewhere with gin and a power point.

via Cloudhopper

Oh dear, someone broke Crikey. Also, my Crikey email is broken. It’s all terribly inconvenient.

@mrsnickhodge I’m sorta past socialising with people because the one thing we have in common is having a Twitter account.

@paulkidd Once “Six Degrees of Francis Bacon” got to Andy Warhol or Robert Hughes it’s game over.

@Jester_Jeff The Belconnen bus interchange is to architecture what Kyle Sandilands is to vertebrate life.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jester_Jeff

This book about “Bacon” isn’t about bacon at all! Just some seedy old painter!

via Cloudhopper

The NGA’s architecture has me imagining there’s a secret gallery where Jewish slave workers still assembkd V-2 rockets.

via Cloudhopper

@unsungsongs Ah Marcus, I admire your ability to make an awkward situation even worse…

@StuartLivesey I’ve dropped nearly all mx tech support clients. No data on how they’re doing with Win 7.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

RT @michaelmeloni: @stilgherrian can I paint you naked? [That is wrong in so many ways. Sure, OK.]

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge No matter how good the new system, that many disparate machines would still fill me with fear. Memories are long.

Rosalie Gascoigne, I want to have your babies! Yes, I know you died in 1999, but I simply don’t care!

via Cloudhopper

Roy Lichtenstein, you’ve got a lot to answer for!

via Cloudhopper

Yes, I think the National Gallery of Australia followed by the National Portrait Gallery for me. Attention limited.

@renailemay Rolling out a new version of Windows to 80,000 computers? What could possibly go wrong? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

@snrkl Thanks to you and others for the welcome to Canberra. It IS beautiful today. I think walks and galleries are the go this arvo.

@jmacmullin I am not at liberty to discuss whether the crows are actually autonomous reconnaissance robots or not.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jmacmullin

Story filed! I hope @crikey_news remembers to replace “[insert graph]” with, you know, the graph.

via Twitter Web Client

It would be easier to file this story if my internets were not full of bees. :(

via Twitter Web Client

Filing my Crikey story from a sunny bench in the rose garden next to Old Parliament House while magpies and cockatoos gurgle and screech.

via Twitter Web Client

Wondering what they’ve started consuming so early down in the Crikey office today, and what effect it’s having.

via Twitter Web Client

@rabbieburns Correct. I’ve now spent longer waithng for a cab at SYD than flying CBR-SYD.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rabbieburns

This is bullshit. Sydney airport cabs are less-organised than Bangkok. Get your shit together, people!

via Cloudhopper

Oh, so I’ll go to the Aurora rather than home.

via Twitter Web Client

Touchdown Sydney.

via Cloudhopper

@davesag My itinerary says I’m on a “DH4”, so I assume that’s a Dash-8. Boarding call just been announced.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to davesag

Also, Qantas, I love the way you just printed a replacement boarding pass for me without me showing any ID.

via Twitter Web Client

Why, when I think of the phrase “last plane out of Canberra”, do I think of Cold Chisel songs? Oh, you KNOW the answer!

via Twitter Web Client

@davesag Sorry, you’re right. Canberra INTERNATIONAL Airport. Pig, meet lipstick.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to davesag

@firstdogonmoon Ah, I understand the Ken Henry reference. Obscure for some, though. Eat that koala!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

At Canberra airport, having dealt with security and paperwork, waiting for what looks like a very under-booked flight to Sydney.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, mobile to Canberra airport.

via Twitter Web Client

WTF? Someone has STOLEN the front page of the Daily Telegraph from the glass panel above the gent’s urinal in this pub. Losers.

via Twitter Web Client

@zuzu While I understand and sympathise with your point, I really don’t think Canberra is the diabetes capital of Australia. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zuzu

There’s a reason Canberra seems to have more syringe disposal bins in toilets than any other city in Australia.

via Twitter Web Client

@deanlk Our campaign to call the Holsworthy intrusion by the Daily Telegraph “Gategate” seems to be failing. :(

via Twitter Web Client

RT @NewtonMark: What do you mean, “wrong”? Everything’s better with bacon. Except http://is.gd/24xOI. [Sick, sick man…]

via Twitter Web Client

@JohnBirmingham Huh? “Cheese and bacon gnocchi”? That sounds… dangerous. And wrong.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JohnBirmingham

Why are all the spam comments on my website about sex with animals?

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Awww… Sorry, after two solid days of conferences, I was completely over spending time with groups of people. You’ll cope.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@deanlk Sadly I did not go tothe Vanity Fair exhibition. I only say the posters after I left the venue. Signage FAIL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

The Australian National Portrait Gallery in Canberra is, to put it succinctly, excellent. I’m also humbled by the stories of those depicted.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Trust me, it’s not too late to avoid @stub. I mean, I flew to Canberra to avoid it, but a bus or taxi will do.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Gomisan I’m sorry, but the very word “webinar” makes we want to stab people in the face. Repeatedly. It’s nothing personal.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Gomisan

Hmmm… I’m not listed. I must be “many other contributors” rather than “prominent and influential speakers”. Right.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m on a panel at Media140 Sydney, 5 Nov. See PDF at http://tr.im/vHxU. @BernardKeane @leighsales @abcmarkscott @Colvinus @overingtonc too.

@Nickhodge Christopher Pyne is mincing around Grace Brothers saying “I’m free” because somewhere a unicorn is dying.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

RT @unsungsongs: Wollongong is NOT Newcastle’s sister city. Wollongong is the Wilson Tuckey of Newcastle’s extended family.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Warlach: Webinars are what people call it when they’re ripping your off online instead of in real life. [Oh right, gotcha.]

via Twitter Web Client

@fictillius Nah it’s OK. I’m only in Canberra for another 2.5 hours. I’ll live. Probably.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

@mpesce I have NO idea what a “webinar” is, but I see people selling them and they all have expensive-looking suits, so they must be good.
