@bengrubb There is a cassette recorder in the rack where the mixer is. There is no red light: no recording.

All that said, there’s really no excuse for this session not to have been streamed in audio, if not video.

via Twitter Web Client

Again, the striking soundbites get tweeted out of context, so those out of the room get the wrong impression.

via Twitter Web Client

@Heckleriser Again, the line out of context sounds “WTF”, but it makes sense if you look at my last tweet.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Heckleriser

@Nickhodge Context: It’s the govt’s job to build public good, that’s why they collect tax. Yet new public goods are private-owned.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

I can hear a barrow being pushed.

via Twitter Web Client

Noting how quotes and catchphrases out of context can give a misleading impression of an event overall.

via Twitter Web Client

Q from floor about how you prove identity online, but Gruen repeats someone else who says multiple identities is a right.

via Twitter Web Client

@lisaharvey points out that accessibility costs money to do right, has to be built in from the start.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lisaharvey

Nicholas Gruen seriously says that the government should have created community good like Google, Facebook and Twitter.

via Twitter Web Client

Is it just me, or is this all attempting to replicate existing govt structures in the digital realm, rather than new structures?

via Twitter Web Client

Odd. “Government 2.0” is the topic, but there isn’t even a screen listing the topics as they’re suggested. Or a big piece of paper.

Ref UK Cabinet Office: “Power of Information Taskforce Report” Feb 2009 http://tr.im/wK5R

via Twitter Web Client

“Information Commissioner”, that was before.

via Twitter Web Client

Actually, the WiFi is pretty dodgy.

via Twitter Web Client

Nicholas Gruen doing intro remarks, says there should be an Information Commission in place by January.

via Twitter Web Client

@steven_noble I’m sitting exactly two seats behind you. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to steven_noble

First bonus point, there IS actually working WiFi.

via Twitter Web Client

Actually, no. I’ll take my notes AS tweets. You may want to use Twittersnooze on me for a couple hours if not interested.

via Twitter Web Client

About to arrive at the Government 2.0 Taskforce Road Show. I’ll take notes rather than tweet extensively. http://tr.im/wIW3

I think you have to be a doctor or a Coalition MP to declare people dead. Or maybe a superhero.

via Twitter Web Client

@alixjasmine @gabfran Yes, “ill” passenger can be a euphemism for dead or dying. CityRail staff aren’t allowed to declare people dead.

via Twitter Web Client

Trains outbound on Sydney’s Inner West line delayed due to ill passenger at Redfern.

@seancarmody Correct, I am not in Crikey today. Whether I am tomorrow depends on the whims of @GreenJ and his minions.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

Mobile. Enmore Rd; King St; lunch; Newtown station; Town Hall station; kill time; 1630-1830 http://tr.im/wJBi; dunno.

@paulkidd Maybe I should start a streaming goat channel. “All goat, all the time!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulkidd

There will NOT be a “Stilgherrian Live” tonight cos I’ll be at the Government 2.0 Taskforce Road Show ttp://tr.im/wIW3 so no prep time.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting Indeed, @ApostrophePong’s photographic style is a big influence on his short film.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

Oh, I hadn’t noticed that @stephenfry had also ripped into the Pear Analytics Twitter “research”. http://tr.im/wJs5

via Twitter Web Client

To the person who just sent me that amusing goat video, thank you.

via Twitter Web Client

@paulkidd Ah, @ApostrophePong will be pleased to hear that. He hasn’t done much straight photography lately.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulkidd

RT @ratbaggery: thought it was sweet of the ACS to invite us to the youngsters’ conference. We could tech the kids about Twitter. [True.]

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong There’s no navigation link from pages in your old photoblog http://tr.im/wJok to the new blog http://tr.im/wJos

via Twitter Web Client

@Mediamum @ssharwood @michaelmeloni Oh you are all so sweet! [smirks] So what do you WANT, exactly?

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Australian Computer Society, I believe you have my DOB on your membership database, so why invite me to a “Young ICT” event?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Trying to figure out which of my tweets you’re referring to.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@GreenJ @sophblack Do we say “spokesperson” or “spokesman” and “spokeswoman” to acknowledge their bits? THEY said “-person”, I now see.

via Twitter Web Client

Crikey story filed! It doesn’t mention Twitter even once!

via Twitter Web Client

Just saw some rushes from @ApostrophePong’s short film. It’s looking VERY slick.

via Twitter Web Client

Patiently waiting for the Attorney-General’s Department to send me an exciting email. Well, not really exciting. And not really patiently.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus ‘Which sounds better , “need to” or “should”? Prefer the latter, but I am authoritative.’ Then use “must”. [Sniff. Oh. No.]

via Twitter Web Client

Writing. Yes, writing.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @mpesce: The California Republican Party (@CAGOP) is now following me. [Well that’s what happens when you put pr0n on the big screen!]

RT @sophblack: fried food will fix everything

After last night’s event, my post “The really real revolutionary revolution of the Internet” seems moar betterer. http://is.gd/2qGnX

Fri plan: Morning write for Crikey; afternoon do webby stuff; lots of end-of-week emails; TGIF, details TBA.

That means “almost half of all music sold is sold on iTunes”, and record companies whinging about CD sales declining isn’t the full picture.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @einspruch: Add to your iTunes stat the fact that 65% of music is still bought on CD. http://adjix.com/jra3

via Twitter Web Client

Apple’s iTunes store still dominates online music: 69% of US market. http://is.gd/2qEg2

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus The article says “call data”. That may or may not include SMS. Anyway, they’ll look at “new” things like [gasp] email next.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, in a modern world maybe “ask your phone” needs to be replaced with more general data sets?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Who are your true friends? Ask your phone. http://is.gd/2qDlp

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Some things are just automatically better in French. “Merci Dieu!” Others in Italian. “Fellatio.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Oui, le mainate des oiseaux est une malédiction sur la terre. Je suis heureux de la semaine qui a pris fin.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Les chats sont à la fois agacé et agaçant. Je ne les laisserai pas chasser les currawong. Et vous?

Emerges. Sorta. Kinda.

via Twitter Web Client

@yeebok Erm, no, that does not help. Time to depart. [exit]

FFS! Can’t you cats synchronise your piss breaks, or something?

@deejackson Oh thank you for that! I’m glad I’m providing something of value.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deejackson

Also, how come whenever I introduce myself to someone from DBCDE they just nod and say “Oh, right”?

via Twitter Web Client

That post http://tr.im/wKGS is about what Nicholas Gruen really said about the government and Google, Facebook, Twitter.

via Twitter Web Client

New blog post. “Why Twitter is useless for covering conferences” http://tr.im/wKGS Note, @Nickhodge, @Heckleriser, @skaye.

Escaping the CBD by electric tubeworm, as is my regular practice.

via Cloudhopper

Loose in the Sydney CBD, kinda.

via Cloudhopper

@deanlk No, there is no “Stilgherrian Live” tonight. [I forgot, I need to repeat these things occasionally.]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: This is why I think Twitter is not so good for conferences. Context is lost with 140 character limits. [Agreed.]

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb The people at the desk on the elevated platform at the front occasionally write things on pieces of paper.
