@a_makohon I think @lelak has got it right. Throwing them is too much effort. Just roll them into the ditch or river.

RT @simontsmall: “90% of 20 marketers think using fake persona is wrong” http://tr.im/xw4h Not that I’d call myself a marketer, but.

RT @derekbarry: Why are the media getting quotes from Anna Bligh on a schoolboy death in NSW? [Kevin Rudd was in a meeting?]

via Twitter Web Client

@mumbrella I hope I haven’t dragged down the debate too much. At least I’m not swearing. Yet. http://tr.im/xw2W

via Twitter Web Client

Apparently hog-tying someone, knifing them and throwing them into a ditch is considered excessive. Who knew?

via Twitter Web Client

@martinbarry @mpesce I’ve always found the “push”/”pull” media distinction unhelpful. “Push” is what you “pulled” a request for earlier.

Can everyone please take a moment to recalibrate your irony and sarcasm detectors? Make it part of your Monday maintenance routine.

@M_Hickinbotham @trib In a more civilised time than today, Geoffrey Emerson would be hog-tied, knifed and thrown into a ditch.

via Twitter Web Client

@M_Hickinbotham @trib “Who cares?” was meant rhetorically. Yes, long-term thinking IS what’s needed. I was far from supporting Emerson.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to M_Hickinbotham

“Who is Geoffrey Emerson?”, you ask? A man who pays people to create fake endorsements in website comments. http://tr.im/xvH2

via Twitter Web Client

@trib @M_Hickinbotham Who cares about long term? Geoffrey Emerson gets links, gets paid, is gone. Later implosion not his problem.

Conference WiFi goes dodgy as he load goes up. Surprise surprise. I’ve switched to my own connection.

@duncanriley Apparently we’re meant to be using not , because we don’t know what year it is or something.

@ApostrophePong No, I only have one phone charger. Try in the kitchen? Under my desk? (This is why we invented the Internet.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

Mind you, only 10 of those 75 people have arrived so far, and the welcome is scheduled for 0820, in 3 minutes.

via Twitter Web Client

@wheelyweb If “no-one” is here, then it must be a message from a narrow, self-centreed “everyone”. Looks like about 75 people in SYD.

There’s another conference here called “Whisky Live”. Can I change my tickets?

Are monks allowed to run for the bus, or should they let go of their desire for punctuality and accept time’s flow?

@trib Well, my bullshit detector’s sensitivity is turned way high today.

The problem with a John Della Bosca sex scandal http://is.gd/2K1vq is the mental imagery it conjures up. Power is appealing, sure. But…

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis moins enclin à poignarder des gens aujourd’hui, à ce jour. Nous allons voir à mon arrivée à la conférence.

@trib Well, last year’s FOM led to ‘Note to “old media” journalists: adapt, or stfu!’ http://is.gd/2JZJ4 Hoping world has moved on.

@SnarkyPlatypus Le sommeil est pour la semaine. Les chats sont fort. L’air est froid. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Awake again. That wasn’t my plan.

I’m home. There is no blood. Probably. [exit]

Kill them. Kill them all.

Christ I could truly kill some clients.

@zhasper Yes, I did use http://downforeveryoneor… but some people had doubts about its accuracy. They are, I have decided, fools.

@willhughes @lewellyn Thank you. Thru this Unwired network I get as far as some Singtel data centre (where?) then… nix!

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @barrysaunders @StanmoreRob Thank you. I did believe that to be the case. Oh well, so I can’t do work from where I am. Such a drama.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Can you see http://stilgherrian.com atm? Deciding whether to trust intel which says it’s a local problem.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Someone in the background has just used the words “those black cunts” three times in a minute. No, there is no racism in Australia. Sigh.

via Twitter Web Client

@lindsayevans Well, yes, anything can be wrong. But it says http://stilgherrian.com and my other sites are OK. And I’m talking to you now.

@lewellyn How does the placename “Coogee Bay” sound to you? Sort of furry and cuddly?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@snrkl No, I haven’t bothered with a traceroute. My end works. The SFO end works OK. I can’t fix whatever’s wrong. Patience is called for.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to snrkl

I will be much happier when whoever’s routing prevents me connecting to my SFO server fixes whatever is going wrong.

via Twitter Web Client

OH: “X is charged with assaulting a police officer outside the Coogee Bay Hotel.” So many redundant words there.

@BernardKean “Having trouble making this collection of snarky comments… hang together as an actual argument.” Just imagine you’re A Bolt.

@lelak I’m not sure who you think I despise on general principles, but it’s a fair bet, yes. I despise most things. And rightly so.

Laughing at The Leading Edge’s survey on behalf of OPSM which asks what I think of a competitor when I’ve already said I’ve never used them.

@htgoldcoast While Crikey is run by truly wonderful people who turn everything they touch into pure joy, they’re not going to make me rich.

@BernardKeane @BiteTheDust The good thing about the “Roads to Recovery” slogan is that it acknowledges the sickness. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane I suspect @SnarkyPlatypus can best respond to your question. My brain is depleted until this kangaroo arrives and is eaten.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

In the interests of today’s theme, “disclosure”, those last two links were to Crikey stories, and Crikey sometimes pays me to write stuff.

@mrblack You refer to “common folk… inciting revolution” like it’s a bad thing.

@nazzer And one person being treated for injuries in a hospital requires the state Premier to comment… why? (Rhetorical question.)
