Is it time for me to ask this important question yet? http://bit.ly/3hrp7m Oh, this might offend some people.

@mpesce So, are you writing without us disturbing you yet? Bah! You are not to be trusted.

@BeauGiles Why would I want to take photos of a surly painter? He’s surly enough as it is!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BeauGiles

@michaelmeloni @fictillius This painter’s apprentice shows signs of becoming fat very soon. Also, he is argumentative and somewhat surly.

via Twitter Web Client

Plumbers’ apprentices are, in general, hunkier and more sexier than painters’ apprentices. Discuss.

@posty You don’t “VoiP” people, you SPEAK with them!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to posty

@lyndons Nah! To “skype” is the colloquial Swedish verb for “gut freshly-caught herring”. Any fool knows this.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lyndons

RT @NereadersDigest: Why do you need a qualifier in the first place? Surely “a long conversation” is enough… [Yes, this is my point!]

via Twitter Web Client

@jdub @mpesce No no no! Whether “Skype” has been verbed is not the point! My point is that the specific medium is irrelevant.

via Twitter Web Client

@stephenconroy You are the only person who truly understands me.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Skype is a brand of phone. VoiP? Sure. Ain’t ALL phone networks these days, under the hood? Shall I Virgin call you?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce So, it was the price that made it valuable, rather than talking with your friend? That does cheapen things, no?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Dory, your name is John. Also, pesto.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce In what way is it important that your conversation with @auradeluxe used Skype, as opposed to any other voice channel?

Mobile: Enmore Rd; lunch; Newtown station; Town Hall station (probably); being unproductive in the Sydney CBD; etc.

H.264 compression is a synonmy for “where the fuck did all my processor cycles just go?”

Everything seems remarkably quiet. The city is hesitant before the storm?

@comms_consult I believe I am on Alltop’s list, but no my gripe was about the confusion between “popular” and “good” and “relevant”.

Amount of the day’s planned activities completed so far: 0. This is all going very, very well, Brian.

@Warlach Yes, generalisation of the theorem works. “Parliament is improved by having Japanese schoolgirls being attacked by mutant squid.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@Jester_Jeff I will avoid asking @mpesce because I’m already full of too much of his worldview, and it hurts.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jester_Jeff

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Any Japanese animation series is 79% improved by having Japanese schoolgirls being attacked by mutant squid.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh I did see your promotion of decaptiation, and I approve. And you’re right: “target-rich environment”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Jester_Jeff … the PA just prints the duty roster from an Excel file, kept locally on her machine, instead of filling in a paper form.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jester_Jeff

@Jester_Jeff Exactly. I see this with small business clients. In come computers, but they’re still doing the same paper processes…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jester_Jeff

RT @Jester_Jeff: Compare to RMA (‘revolution in mil affairs’)… tech advances w/o organisational/conceptual change have little impact.

via Twitter Web Client

@klicktweet To use the steel example, steel ships weren’t the same as wooden ships of steel. Revolution was global shipping’s structure.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to klickComms

@klicktweet Precisely. The “drastic and far-reaching change in ways of thinking and behaving” is what we’re after, not just” using tools.

via Twitter Web Client

@klicktweet My point is that the tools are not the revolution, the change in structures, processes and thinking are.

An iPhone app that talks to you. “Playing with me again? PUT ME DOWN AND DO SOME WORK YOU FUCKING LOSER!”

via Twitter Web Client

Maybe I need an iPhone app for that.

via Twitter Web Client

Social media is no more a revolution than steel was a revolution. It’s what you DO with it that is (maybe) revolutionary.

@trib All that video does is repeat “This is big! This is big! This is big!”, which we already know, and “Oh we have a consultancy & book.”

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Just less “evangelism” and hand-waving about “social media” and more shutting the fuck up and DOING.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Why that clichéd video “Social Media Revolution” http://bit.ly/qCmT8 is bullshit. http://bit.ly/L73fe Hat-tip @trib.

RT @stephenconroy: You people thought I was kidding about my gift to Sydney. I hope you learned a very important lesson, Blossom.

Since when has News.com.au carried iGoogle “Make your own news service in 30 seconds” buttons? Google News, but filtered. ;)

@yin_yin Crikey’s tentacles get into everything, you know.

Wed plan: Write for Crikey; lunch, perhaps something with paprika; client project planning (again); evening not yet allocated.

I’m listening to @mpesce’s musical selections instead of @SnarkyPlatypus’ and it’s… weird.

@andrewbarnett That’s appallingly lazy. Failing to source a qoute is just… inexcusably bad. http://tinyurl.com/mv8rel

@SnarkyPlatypus Ce n’est pas tout à fait approprié pour ce matin. Nous aurons à en discuter correctement.

@bengrubb You’ll be “pleased” to know News.com.au is running an AAP story quoting your tweet wituout saying who it is. http://bit.ly/2RpjJJ

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je m’abstiendrai de dire une évidence. Et vous?

Mobile. I’m not sure where we’ll go exactly. Start from the hilltop at Enmore for a wide shot, then see where the Muses take us.

via Twitter Web Client

@cowspanker I will now just copy stuff off news.com.au and credit it “some web user’s story” with no link. Fair, yeah?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cowspanker

I suggest the hashtag , since the SE Australian dust storm is a good deal more widespread than parochial ol’ Sydney.

via Twitter Web Client

@cowspanker Sir, “a Twitter user’s shot” is a piss-poor photo credit. Can’t be arsed finding names? At least ID them. http://bit.ly/2RpjJJ

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cowspanker

Decided! Yes, @ApostrophePong and I will, after a cuppa, pop out to view this dusty maelstrom, armed with camera both still and video.

via Twitter Web Client

And now @ApostrophePong is out too. Wondering whether to brave the weather to take some photos and/or video.

Sun has risen. Sky red with dust, winds gusting to 65km/h. An orange hell lit from underneath by street lights. The cats are nervous.

@snowded I am fairly certain that guinea pigs are not made of sunflower seeds, ground or otherwise treated.

“My name Tatyana and I wish to take away from you at all a lot of time and To penetrate in wash the letter!” Fair enough then.

Wow, she turns her whole head left to right as she reads each line of the novel. Must be exhausting! Are her eyeballs glued?

Abandonhng plans. Going home. Not enough energy to be stabby, so count yourself lucky you bastards.

Dear Telstra, re your CBD advertising, “Hurry instore” is not a sentence. Have you no self-respect?

via Cloudhopper

@stephendann That is secisely my point. Do we really need “integrated visions” beford making improvements?

Waves of extreme fatigue.

@lewellyn Skip the dress and we have a deal, Sir!

@mpesce “I haven’t seen any educator present any integrated vision of what pens and paper mean to students, teachers or the classroom.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@paulkidd Yes, “used seafood”. Surely you’ve explored the auto-erotic possibilities of cuttlefish?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulkidd

@SnarkyPlatypus @lewellyn If you like, I can roll in used seafood to get that squiddy smell and take it from there?

@DDsD I’m using Tweetdeck 0.30.5, which I downloaded this morning.

@benmoretti Yes, I said “more sexier”. If that kind of construction was OK for Shakeaspeare it’s fine by me.

@WarWraith Yes, that poster at http://bit.ly/3hrp7m is related to one of Bill Drummond’s more interesting art pieces.
