I have dealt with the packet loss. Now to deal with the pain.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Virgin Mobile, the level of packet loss I’m experiencing currently is not acceptable.

OH: [Mother to infant daughter in pram] Stay still you little cunt. You move and I’ll bash you.

RT @barrysaunders: I would have said a GnR song covered by a Thai-pop group. [Fair point.]

via Twitter Web Client

I am a song by Flock of Seagulls, covered by Short Stack.

@ragnarok1971 But… But… I can enhance shareholder value synergistically, moving forward.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

RT @MikeStuchbery: CVs with smug taglines like ‘taking big ideas and making them spreadable’ actually work. [Kill me now.]

via Twitter Web Client

I completely misread @mpesce’s tweet. The Merging is failing.

via Twitter Web Client

Two hours of listening to WS FM has made me at one with the world, assuming the world is late 80s MOR tripe.

via Twitter Web Client

@ADevenish @mpesce” What’s the difference between stealing and copying?” Um, let me just copy the money in your wallet. WTF?

via Twitter Web Client

@iain_chalmers @kcarruthers True. Maybe I need to compile a book of my tweets, with crowdsourced photos and other cheap-arse practices.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to iain_chalmers

@kcarruthers What use are tweets a week later, out of context?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@MarkConrau Exactly. But it’s the local office to head office to contractor’s head office to local manager chain which needs cutting.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MarkConrau

RT @stephenconroy: Crowdsauce. Noun. The liquified remains of Social Media Lemmings at the bottom of a cliff.

via Twitter Web Client

@MarkConrau I agree it’s the distributor behaving badly re junk mail, but the retailer chooses the distributor and pays the bills.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MarkConrau

@Nickhodge @mpesce “Crowdsource” verb: To expect everyone else to pick up your dirty socks.

via Twitter Web Client

@renailemay Yes, I use twine. It’s excellent. It’s kept out chilli plants tied to their stakes through many windy nights. I love twine.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

The silly thing is, their first email was actually good: an apology and explaining how they’d pass the complaint to their contractor.

via Twitter Web Client

Ha! One of the businesses named in my blog post http://is.gd/29XTv has asked me to remove the reference to them. No chance.

via Twitter Web Client

@ssharwood I’m having lunch somewhere where I do not have control of the audio. Or earplugs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

WS FM just said John Farnham is “considering his new single”. Does Farnham not know what “retire” means?

via Twitter Web Client

@SBSNews The contrast got me: interesting enough to RT, but I was surprised to see it in your news. My judgement is off, obviously!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SBSNews

Mobile. Enmore Rd / lunch / King St / Newtown station / Kings Cross station / 1615 Potts Point chiropractor / TBA thereafter.

via Twitter Web Client

Gawd. @SBSNews is running that “fired via Facebook” story. http://is.gd/29TLH Worthy? It DID get RTd a lot. Hat-tip @rod3000.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Many employers still fail to focus solely on issues which relate to the job. They want drones, not humans.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Fatigue levels annoyingly high. Strong pain then codeine will do that, I guess.

via Twitter Web Client

@franmolloy Well there’s “30 Ways to Lose a Job on Twitter” http://is.gd/29Qva Purports to be real.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franmolloy

@Warlach Yes, version numbers as birds. Or possibly virulent diseases. “Facebook FAIL: Cholera Edition”. No, birds are funnier.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

“Ex-Pedophile Shares Tips On How To Make Your Kids Less Attractive” http://is.gd/29Qd3 [Several kinds of wrong.]

via Twitter Web Client

Mon (belated) plan, now that the opioids are working: Lunch soon; errands on King st; 1615 chiropractor Potts Point; remainder TBA.

via Twitter Web Client

Watching everyone retweet that thing about losing your job via Facebook.There’s irony in there somewhere.

via Twitter Web Client

“How to lose your job on Facebook”, version… how many are we up to? http://is.gd/29O37

via Twitter Web Client

“Are you still marketing like its 1999?”: Online is customers’ “number one media priority”…is it yours? http://is.gd/29LcX Ta@mediahunterer.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @martin_english You are falling for Fairfax’s trolling strategy. See “Media Watch”. http://is.gd/29K1Y

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Look, let’s not get into any time-wasting arguments about who’s shooting whom…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

More importantly, that @davewiner piece “Narrate Your Work” http://is.gd/29HTF applies to any distributed team.

via Twitter Web Client

“Twitter is at least a dress rehearsal for the news system of the future”, says @davewiner. http://is.gd/29HTF

via Twitter Web Client

Reminder: I’ll be at NICTA’s Techfest 2009 tomorrow, looking at their latest ICT R&D. Shall liveblog, probably. http://is.gd/2aY4y

via Twitter Web Client

Tue plan: A gentle desk-plod, mapping out some client projects and, with luck, not having too much pain along the way.

via Twitter Web Client

I think the codeine is starting to work now, fortunately.

via Twitter Web Client

Now, apart from that, I think everyone needs to experience this photograph. Because. http://is.gd/2aVR9

via Twitter Web Client

@alicam Indeed, why ARE Kyle & Jackie O still on Twitter’s recommended list? http://bit.ly/NVxIf who chooses these things?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alicam

@SnarkyPlatypus Cette chanson est stupide. La danse est stupide. La vidéo est stupide. http://is.gd/2aUse

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je survivre, grâce à la bienveillance de artificielle opiacés. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Emerges. In pain. Again. This has got to stop.

via Twitter Web Client

No, @ApostrophePong! Kyle is NOT the story of King Lear!

via Cloudhopper

@mrsnickhodge Excellent. There’s nothing better to look forward to than chicks with guns.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mrsnickhodge

@kcarruthers When have I ever quoted Wittgenstein? Supernaut maybe, but not Wittgenstein. http://is.gd/2aeHJ

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@mrsnickhodge Oh. The shooting day. I need to consult my cashflows and schedule. I will have an answer this week.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mrsnickhodge

@kcarruthers @R_Chirgwin BTW, if you tweet a bunch of random hashtags and a URL, you risk Twiterblockage. Ask @courtney_gibson.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers @R_Chirgwin No, please don’t put on that list of hashtags. http://is.gd/2adDE

via Twitter Web Client

Paul Budde’s “New business models for media content” is worth a read too. http://is.gd/2adxM

via Twitter Web Client

@charispalmer Hah! If @natecochrane and I are having a mini Future of Media summit, then it should end with telling everyone to STFU. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to charispalmer

RT @Nickhodge: How many spivs can ACA fit into a 30 minute show? [That’s the 21C version of the angels on the head of a pin question.]

via Twitter Web Client

@natecochrane I do remember Delphi ttp://bit.ly/7NguU but didn’t have an account. Viatel, however… http://is.gd/2accc

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane Absolutely. People move to the Next Big Thing. And the VCs play a dangerous game of musical chairs with investors’ money.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane [smirks] I’ve worked with VCs before, in the first dot.com boom. My advisor keeps reminding me how evil they are.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane Agree re network value ~ size. But if it’s not growing, it still has the SAME value, not less. Unless you’re a greedy VC cunt.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane Seriously, if we can identify everyone who demands “rapid growth” == “success” and put a bullet in their head NOW, it’s WIN!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane I agree, social media sites’ business models are predicated on growth. I reckon that’s the PROBLEM. VC culture is toxic.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

For those who missed it, I reckon @davewiner’s “Narrate Your Work” http://is.gd/2aaZP is an important read, especially for journalists.

via Twitter Web Client

Urge to kill people declining.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Nickhodge: Fire was invented to permit late night social gatherings & story telling. I declare it the first social media tool.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @natecochrane: Facebook Powers Past MySpace in June. http://bit.ly/1tFaT [Absolutely. But lack of growth for MySpace is not death.]

via Twitter Web Client

@natecochrane OK, MySpace http://is.gd/2a9Lo vs Facebook http://is.gd/2a9MW is “Facebook wins”, but MySpace gurgles along. [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane Hang on, there’s a HUGE difference between “popular” and “able to pay their bills”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

Also, to everyone who found that mother’s comment inappropriate, well, yes, t’was… confronting. Thank you for being human.

via Twitter Web Client

@natecochrane I think you’re confusing “growth rates” with “usage”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane WTF? LinkedIn is the only social media site which has “lasted”? MySpace’s 100M uniques a month is what, then? Facebook’s moar?
