@marclehmann Um, we did have a couple hotter days in Tanzania on , but I was prepared. Oh well. Will find an excuse to be in the sun.

I’m sorry, did I ASK for Sydney to have a 32C maximum today? Did I?

@SnarkyPlatypus Je soupçonne ce tunnel Joe Tripodi va beaucoup plus loin que 7km.

@BreakfastNews I’d like there NOT to be a Citizenship Test. Conformity to pre-defined culture kills innovation. People just buy the answers.

I say again, Telstra’s shares are roughly where they were 2 days ago http://tr.im/yU8U and better than 6 months back http://tr.im/yU9r

@SnarkyPlatypus J’étudie la possibilité d’installer des infrastructures féline spécifiques. Joe Tripodi seront consultés.

@sparksman Ah! It was not a reference to Alanis. I know not her work. It was just some spooky action at a distance. ;)

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Les chats ont amélioré leur campagne de privation de sommeil. Leurs revendications nocturnes ont triplé en nombre.

There is a copy of Senate Hansard open on my screen. WTF kind of night did I have last night?

@philipargy I know! I was thinking their antics would get them killed. But those bloody felines will end up outliving me!

@jdub Yep! Those last words of James Burke’s “The Day The Universe Change” triggered my “revolutionary revolution” rant. http://tr.im/yTJT

@durandpX9 Telstra isn’t “removed” from the NBN. It, like any other firm, can bid to provide services to it. I daresay it’ll provide lots.

@sparksman My “Alanis quote”? What Alanis quote? I don’t know any Alanis TO quote!

Emerges. Those cats are reducing my life expectancy by the minute.

I think that’s probably enough for one day. Even without the apple, it would have been ample. [exit]

Mobile (again): Enmore Rd; King St; @SnarkyPlatypus; gym; dinner; just dinner; yes, I said “just dinner”, you know what happened last time.

It’s noooooottttttt ffaaaiiiirrrrrrr!!1!1!!!

Telstra shares are back where they were two days ago. http://tr.im/yPYH If I hear any more shareholder whinging, slap!

Visiting 52 Suburbs of Sydney in a year, with wond’rous photos. http://tr.im/yPQB Hat-tip @viveka.

RT @NewtonMark: The vast bulk of the NBN will be new fibre. Existing fibre doesn’t pass every home, it’s mainly backhaul. Ducts, however…

via Twitter Web Client

@jdub Ah technically! Dunno. How existing fibre might become part of the NBN technically gets outside my understanding.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

Home. Desk. Joy, not.

via Twitter Web Client

@jdub It’s therefore IMHO quite likely that the NBN will buy/lease existing stuff from all over, if the price is right.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@jdub Yes, any existing or new player can offer to lease or other vend their existing network assets into the NBN.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@ecobabetweets I wouldn’t hold your breath. Telstra says the 10 cables will take a week to repair. Time to make “other arrangements”.

@mpesce What have I done now? I was just quoting that nice Senator Conroy chap!

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; lunch at Happy Chef, ‘cos I feel like laksa; bank; then back to my desk.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting But, there’s still to April to work out the commercial, competitive and legislative aspects. All somewhat complex.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@franksting The NBN is wholesale. Conroy is implying government doesn’t want duplicate wholesale networks, see that was waste.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

I was in Crikey yesterday too, which I didn’t mention. “Telstra has to morph into a different kind of beast” http://tr.im/yPcT

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, I’m in Crikey today: “Great for competition? Or one true NBN?” http://tr.im/yPcB Paywall’d but free trial. Yes, it’s about Telstra.

via Twitter Web Client

@gb96 Bother. So Simon Hackett Wines is not @simonhackett but another one. I feel cheated. Very cheated.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gb96

@JonoH And before you mention the USSR, that’s the other scale. Also, an NBN can innovate as Australia competes with, oh, everyone.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH America had only one NASA, and innovated like all fuck to reach the Moon. Competitions breeds innovation, but so do other things.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

Oh. That was meant to be a private non-public DM which was private and not public.

@SnarkyPlatypus If it involves Christopher Pyne and unicorn horns, I’m in!

@philipargy “We are concerned about the incident… conducting a thorough investigation into the contractors’ activities,” says Energy Aust.

@kjmci It’ll be a nice lesson for those CBD businesses about having contingency plans for when things break.

Oh thank fuck for that! I’ve found some codeine! Synthetic opiates FTW!

“Telstra [Sydney services] services cut for a week” http://tr.im/yP74 10 major cables damaged. Whoopsie.

via Twitter Web Client

“Telstra split is a win for the telco”, says @Internode founder Simon Hackett. http://tr.im/yP5J He also makes an acceptable red wine.

via Twitter Web Client

@einspruch @barrysaunders Yes, there has been a bifurcated structural separation. With apples.

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH @R_Chirgwin I have now read so much and thought so much about Telstra structural separation that my brain is imploding.

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH I’m also having trouble with “competition” and “one fibre network” in the same paragraph. Seems… contradictory.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH I reckon the decision on allowing competition to NBN is still being worked through. I haven’t had time to read everything yet tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

There will NOT be a “Stilgherrian Live” tonight. I am planning to re-vamp the program a little so it’s moar betteror.

via Twitter Web Client

Thu plan: Write for Crikey; lunch somewhere nice, given the weather (any takers?); minor webby things; evening undecided.

@paulkidd Oh? What am I saying on Radio National? We recorded that last week so I’ve forgotten.
