@SnarkyPlatypus @firstdogonmoon I want a pavlova from another world too. With the extra other-world stuff in it.

Today’s @firstdogonmoon is indeed free. And glorious. http://tinyurl.com/lyhr5m “So there’s an upside as well.”

Dear Virgin Mobile, the thing about these data packets is that you’re meant to route ALL of them, not lose 21% of them.

I’m thinking my strategy will be to take notes and write up material later. Or maybe shoot some video on my phone.

via Twitter Web Client

@neuraxon77 No live audio/video, but there are no actual formal presentations apart from that content-free opening speech.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, liveblogging isn’t the right mode for this event. It’s wander-the-stalls and chat with people and see demos.

Liveblog has started from NICTA Techfest 2009 at http://is.gd/2cjT2

Waiting for the CoveritLIve interface to download via so I can liveblog from … or can has WiFi?

My God! There are so many scientists!

You have been sent deliberately to taunt me. WHO IS YOUR CONTROLLER?

via Cloudhopper

I don’t know what this is, but if I put it in my mouth I’m sure I’ll be happier. Much happier.

via Cloudhopper

Ah, sweet sweet codeine…!

Maybe if Twitter were made of sagebrush… ah, but that’s just a wishful dream!

via Twitter Web Client

And I, for one, welcome our new sagebrush overlords. http://is.gd/2e9PM

WATCH OUT! Cloned plants are communicating with each other and coordinating their defences! http://is.gd/2e9PM

Adverbs are looking pretty fucking suspect at the moment too. Just watch it, OK?

Thu plan: Writing at my desk; lunch & errands on King St; an afternoon of a billion project-related loose ends, probably; all may change.

RT @thetowncrier: Tony Abbott’s daughter calls him a “lame, gay churchy loser”. http://is.gd/2e8kn Most of that seems about right…

It’s not just the prepositions, either. Not by a long shot.

Will the US recession kill their free-WiFi coffee-shop culture, and with it creativity? http://is.gd/2e7y1

@JohnBirmingham Sir, you’ve said precisely what needed to be said about torture. http://bit.ly/iC1cR Also, happy birthday for the other day.

@penbo Break a leg for Punch TV tomorrow. http://tinyurl.com/pwxf6f I don’t have Foxtel, so you’ll miss me. ;)

@ApostrophePong True, we could’ve had a friendly to-camera shot at beginning and end but, like, you get what you pay for.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

In another exciting video, @ApostrophePong explains how to make an origami boat. http://is.gd/2dfzt There’s my Logie for shooting that!

@firstdog Maybe as a shortlist, choose the cartoons which generated the most complaints and/or confusion.

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon Recent cartoons that sparked my sparklers included http://is.gd/2d4p5 but I do like rainbows and unicorns.

@snrkl Why did I choose them to begin with? Well, I expected the network to actually WORK… you know, transmit packets and stuff.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to snrkl

@snrkl Why do I “persist” with Virgin Mobile? Because just now I’m stuck in a contract I can’t afford to break.
