@fictillius What you said just then is wrong. Quite wrong. And you should be ashamed.

All batteries dead, but nearly home.

BTW, I thought I made sense on ABC Radio National’s “Future Tense” today re corporate transparency. http://tr.im/yUVf

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… I seem to be running out of phone battery, which is for the tethering, you see. I may well disappear off the grid without warning.

@drearyclocks There is “action” at the Conservatorium? Hmmm… My experience is that Con-trained musicians are dud roots.

@vealmince Perhaps it is easier to make money from “next big things” but, you know, “making money” isn’t the only thing in the world.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vealmince

I wish people would stop searching for “next big things” and do something useful / constructive with the things they have.

@fridley Oh you poor dear thing. Umbrellas are like $5 at random shops all over, should it actually rain.

RT @mpesce: Must invent one more question for a really simple and elegant invention. [How about “Do you put out?”]

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I agree. The clouds rolling over Sydney are lovely. Alas, no thunderstorm forecast, just “chance of a shower” overnight.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @VoxofTLS: Nitro-methane would be the best bet and faster. http://bit.ly/Jspra Yay! Drug advice from Telstra. No. Wait.

via Twitter Web Client

Wow. I never realised how many people I know have such detailed advice on the drugs I’ll need. Mailing address is on my website, m’kay?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @unsungsongs: Methinks you over-complicate Newcastle trip. Train leaves central every hour. Drugs optional. [I still like my version.]

via Twitter Web Client

@georgekhalil I’ve got an update on that Telstra cable cut incident at Crikey. http://tr.im/yVLN

via Twitter Web Client in reply to georgekhalil

I’ve just been told that for a weekend in Newcastle I’ll need particularly strong drugs. The logistics of this are becoming more complex.

I can hear a masked lapwing (plover). http://tr.im/yVK0 Annoying birds.

@captain_beef Damn! I wish I could claim the TINA = crystal meth joke was in there, but no. I didn’t spot it. Well played.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to captain_beef

Hah! http://steakhouseorgayba… Can you pick the steakhouses from the gay bars just by name? Hat-tips @paulkidd @mpesce @kripy

via Twitter Web Client

I suppose I’d better sort out our trip to Newcastle for This Is Not Art at some point. Maybe some sort of meth-fuelled road trip would work.

via Twitter Web Client

@drearyclocks Nice to see you taking your mum to our little patch in Newtown. The Sly Fox for cocktails, then the Zanzibar after midnight?

via Twitter Web Client

@ambiej Heh! Thank you! Like every time I type “let alone” it comes out “let along”. It is my curse. Or one of them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ambiej

@gabfran Nope, I’m not at Ku-ring-gai National Park, not even close. These crows are very urbanised. And very black.

Me in Crikey today: “What caused Sydney CBD’s Telstra outage?” http://tr.im/yVy8 Contains at least one embarrassing typo.

via Twitter Web Client

@KristenObaid Nah, “SEKRIT” has been around a while. Personally, I like stirring people who see conspiracies every time someone meets up.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to KristenObaid

I’ve just been invited to the War 2.0 symposium at ANU on 7-8 Oct. http://tr.im/yVwA Can I scam… I mean, justify two days in Canberra?

via Twitter Web Client

There are crows as well as currawongs. In fact, far more crows than currawongs. That’s a clue, perhaps. Or not.

via Twitter Web Client

SEKRIT lunch is over. I’m now at another SEKRIT location watching currawongs and doing something appropriate for the summery weather.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Newtown station; Central station; Surry Hills; SEKRIT lunch with @mpesce. Shhh!

@lewellyn I am actually grown up enough to be able to read something 10 pages long.

@aussexparty Heh! I haven’t actually listened to the program yet. I recorded my bit in isolation last week.

I was on ABC Radio National’s “Future Tense” today talking corporate transparency. Listen at http://tr.im/yUVf if you dare!

@mpesce I’m talking to the lovely 2SER people about Telstra structural separation.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce I will read the Jung article laterish. I have just booked a 1200 phone recording with radio 2SER to be broadcast tomorrow morning.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

I am writing now. Please don’t do anything interesting which I might want to have experienced.

@smperris I think some sort of ranting is more than inevitable in any version of “Stilgherrian Live”. More focussed, better ranting.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

@mtats Oh I know the angst wasn’t at me. :) Bu the “C” in “ICT” is ‘cos, well, phones aren’t computers, right? (Yes, I know they are tho.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mtats

@mtats The quote marks mean I was quoting the title of the talk, with the “ICT” acronym. I don’t like it much either, but what do we use?

My comment about real estate agents seems to have resonated. Can’t imagine why. ;) Will include all suggestions in my blog post.

via Twitter Web Client

@NewtonMark Hah! No, not inspection day. Just more real estate advertising in my “no advertising material” letter box. http://tr.im/z0qJ

Fri plan: Writing (Crikey?); quick lunch; recording for “A Series of Tubes” and one other; quick webby bits; 1645 doctor Darlinghurst; TGIF.

@bigjsl You’re right. I did leave out “venal” and “parasitic”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bigjsl

@TheVASydney But you seem too NICE to have worked in the real estate industry! You’ll spoil my narrative! ;)

@mpesce You think seasons (climate) are linked clockwork-like to astronomical events, irrespective of location? You’re a fool, Sir!

@GreenJ @BernardKeane I detect a Crikey Poll coming on…

@GreenJ @BernardKeane Or possibly Clare “Chk Chk Boom” Werbeloff?

RT @philipargy: Is cropping a horse animal abuse?

via Twitter Web Client

@safzoro I’m hardly a fan of Mr Cheney either, but I reckon we can consider the photo-crop question independent of the subject.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@daz77 Ta for the references. I’ll clarify the Greenpeace / tuna thing in a blog post later today. It’s too hard to contextualise in 140.

@SnarkyPlatypus Mr Morford’s take on mid-life crisis from Feb 2008 is rather lulzworthy. http://tr.im/z06G

@philipargy I usually get up around 0600. I was early earlier in the week, but the cats have been uncooperative lately. Long story.
