@DDsD I refuse to confirm or deny what I may or may not do with brushes.

@joshuamck The best layout depends on the information. In this case, charts with explanatory text beneath: can’t read text and chart.

@DDsD Yes, but some documents need to be read by people other than smartarse cunts. :P

@benmoretti That’s the great tension of eGov [hate the term]; govts want to keep power, but WE may not want them to.

I will soon practice what I preach and make my standard document templates landscape. With animated GIFs of unicorns.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Everybody, please make PDFs in landscape, sized so a full page is readable on a laptop.

@thoughtsfactory I’m now seeing the Gov 2.0 process as exploratory rather than definitive, but I dunno whether that was the original plan.

@awrd Always happy to pop into Ultimo for interviews etc, Sir. Same goes for other electric wireless radio-type things.

@SnarkyPlatypus I think it’s a little early for Smirnoff Blacks. Give it another half hour.

O Muse, why are you not with me this morning?

via Twitter Web Client

Fri plan: Write for Crikey; plan the afternoon after that, ‘cos all is chaos, but record my bit of “A Series of Tubes”; TGIF. Vague? Yes.

@jeffsonstein It would have been even better commentary without the typos. :( Ah well, it helps set snark levels for my next writing task.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis un fan de la masse, il est vrai. Ou le glaive. Mais peut-être juste un club? http://bit.ly/UA0OU

@jeffsonstein Re that Twitter traffic growth chart, I’ve just aded my own commentary along those lines. http://bit.ly/VPfuA VC Voodoo.

@SnarkyPlatypus C’est un jour qui pourrait être parfait pour une série de coups de couteau. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je n’ai pas encore poignardé quelqu’un, mais je ne acheter The Australian. J’en ai besoin pour travailler, hélas.

Graph of Twitter’s traffic growth. Useless: leaves out mobile, SMS. Drool anyway, sheep. http://bit.ly/sL5RV

Emerges even. Scene set, it seems.

Home. Off-grid. [exit]

The Led Zepellin tribute show is on at the Enmore Theatre, and it shows. The village is almost uninhabitable.

@SylviaDiscount I mean spouting ANY details of a person’s location and business without considering their privacy. I reckon it’s rude as …

via Twitter Web Client

@SylviaDiscount You don’t think all that is maybe a flagrant disregard of Mr Hicks’ privacy?

via Twitter Web Client

Going home and going off-grid. Possibly that will mean no-one gets stabbed. Possibly.

@sylmobile My superpower is that I can walk into new pubs, buy the last meat raffle tickets, and win. Much to the annoyance of the locals.

@monkeytypist INTERCAL? That’s showing a certain age…

Anyway, I don’t see what’s wrong with writing websites in Algol 68.

OH: “When I left Telstra, they never switched me off, so I can still get into everything for free. What do you want?”

@rmccue I don’t even know what that tweet means, but I just HAD to RT it. I am a slave to my impulses.

Old blog post: “Stephen Conroy: separated at birth from…?” http://bit.ly/rHHsE Sorry, I need cheering up.

RT @oliyoung RT @jordanhillier: OH: “Java is to JavaScript as ham is to hamster”

RT @sylmobile: PowerPoint violates our human rights.

@benmoretti There’s a message in there about government (and everything else!) taking on board the fact that nothing is ever perfect.

@PeterBlackQUT Last time @ApostrophePong tested it, Vimeo had the best compression quality. But YouTube has the search-and-find audience.

@omegatron [smirks] At least “wanker” was the worse language I used. I was Parliament House, after all, so I didn’t use the f-word. I think.

@commuter_dirge You’re not the first who’s said I sound like Tony Martin. I’m not sure whether this is good, bad, neutral or cheesegrater.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to commuter_dirge

@ScottRhodie @Tuna Erm yes well. I also told them they were all part of the problem. And yet they applaud. It must’ve been the pills.

Watching my presentation at NSW Sphere and noticing that I called the entire audience “wankers”. http://bit.ly/YGVRj

RT @CADbloke: I prefer the complete toolkit. Add Gaffa tape, fencing wire, WD-40 and chewing gum. And a big hammer. [And string, surely?]

via Twitter Web Client

If you can’t do it with a hammer, it’s not worth doing.

@drearyclocks Dick Smith does not stock XLR cables. Where are you physically at the moment? I’ll suggest a nearby professional audio shop.

@JudeEkerick @jodiem Agree with your approval of Gravity, the S60 Twitter client. Loves using it today. Note that, @SnarkyPlatypus!

Lunch done. Soon to be loose in Sydney CBD. Probably.

I wonder if Crikey wants me to report on the Miss Pole Dance 2010 final. Yes, there’s a date thing happening there.

via Cloudhopper

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Newtown station; Circular Quay station; 1300 lunch; wherever the afternoon takes me, which is probably to my desk.
