@johnhalton True, Orwell’s pithy style does fit. But to ge a feel for the pace of WWII from a civilian’s POV, well… dunno!

@johnhalton I’m not sure I like the idea of @georgeorwell tweeting his diary. Not EVERYTHING has to be dumped into the Twittersewer.

@benmoretti Oh I don’t give a toss about categorisation, whether Twitter is IM or not. I just want somewhere to put it!

@ApostrophePong Do we really need this chocolate-coated cockroach? I mean, really?

@juhasaarinen You’re right, Apple’s Address Book tries to talk to apps. Still, I could do a skype://stilgherrian URL, I suppose.

@benmoretti @oliyoung @chieftech @juhasaarinen The drop-down list of IM networks as AOL etc but no option to add more. I am stabby.

via Twitter Web Client

WTF? Apple’s address book doesn’t have fields for either Skype or Twitter? Losers.

Re-formatting a catering company’s Christmas menus just before lunch is a rather cruel punishment.

@Nickhodge @mrsnickhodge I am reliably informed that the anniversary / murder joke has already been done. Sorry for my lack of timeliness.

George Orwell’s diaries document the beginning of WWII. http://tr.im/xGA2 Not sure what hashtag he’s using.

SIGGRAPH 2009 Conference Report tonight at COFA Sydney. http://tr.im/xGzJ Hat-tip @ApostrophePong.

via Twitter Web Client

Ah! “The Question of Morality”, from Vance Packard’s 1957 book “The Hidden Persuaders”. http://tr.im/xGzk “Influencers” now?

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge @mrsnickhodge Happy Anniversary. But, like 20 years? You’d get less for murder! [Oh, someone had to say it.]

via Twitter Web Client

Yay! I have a narrative structure!

I am writing and not being distracted by the cats or the currawong or email or what I can see out of the window. I am writing.

RT @AmosKeeto: I think 9.30 is better, household’s settled dinner over etc… 9:30 is “me” time. [That’s change time, “family” to “adult”.]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @BernardKeane: think I just accidentally created the term “groupwank” whilst typing “groupthink”.

via Twitter Web Client

WHAT IS SO FUCKING HARD ABOUT MATCHING THE SUBJECT OF THE EMAIL WITH THE CONTENT?

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Indeed, you can’t throw away our Anthony Albanese fridge magnet!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@sylmobile Well, yes, it does seem to be about “Stilgherrian Live” conflicting with “Q&A”. But I mean, there will always be some conflict.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sylmobile

Someone suggested I should do “Stilgherrian Live” at 8.30pm Sydney time rather than 9.30pm. Comments?

via Twitter Web Client

Thu plan: Mostly writing at my desk, including for ; lunch errand to King St; “Stilgherrian Live” tonight.

@johnhaining I agree with @SnarkyPlatpypus: “Howard’s legacy” is a suck-up for inside the party, but the voters did clearly dump the man.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to johnhaining

@johnhaining Yeah, it’s about Turnbull, not the party now. He did look intelligent and socially aware. Now he looks too brittle, unstable.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to johnhaining

@SnarkyPlatypus Le problème, c’est que les libéraux sont une complète des muppets et de lézards.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Une fois, j’ai pensé Turnbull serait un bon PM. Maintenant, je ne voudrais pas lui faire confiance avec du pain rassis.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je me félicite que certains oiseaux ont fait de moi une partie de leur vie. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Americans still watch vastly more TV than web video, with a chart. http://tr.im/xKzw

via Twitter Web Client

@benmoretti But you refer to Address Book allowing a new tag instead of “Work” or “Home”? The name of the network on RHS is still wrong!

I think all the mammals will now permit me to go to bed. [exit]

Sick of info-videos with pointless music, making it harder to hear the people talking, who’ve been poorly recorded.

Life has done a gallery of some of the more intense propaganda posters from WWII. http://tr.im/xI3Q

Yes, there were crabs. And prawns. Now, there is just pondering.

via Twitter Web Client

Pondering, with incipient prawns. Later, there shall be crabs.
