@AndrewColley Man, if you’ve downloaded the ENTIRE Internet then you’re screwed. Also, awesome.

@LiamT Oh, if you want to judge by the Twitter coverage then clearly it’s @AndrewColley’s fault and he’s been arrested. ;)

@drearyclocks Drinks were refilled during breaks. I did tell them that’d be a continuity issue. ;) Maybe they should show the waiter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to drearyclocks

@drearyclocks Thanks. I’m watching the video now. We did all seem to get, erm, “enthusiastic” in the pub. Can’t imagine why.

@LiamT Thanks very much for the Twitter coverage. I’d love to talk to you at some point about how the experience evolved.

@LiamT Who’ll win ? That’s about a judge evaluating evidence against law as written, which isn’t necessarily what observers guess.

@expectproblems Finland has been a leader in Internet connectivity for at least 15 years. Beats going out in the snow!

@benpobjie Australia doesn’t seem very good at making laws about our human rights. Apparently. But this may change.

@timehhh I was out of the room at the critical moment, but MSNBC seemed to have done it live too after all. Or nearto.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timehhh

@nanopunk Hiding in the garden shed is the best bet for him, since he doesn’t appear to be in the balloon now that it’s landed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to PitcherJenna

MSNBC says they won’t show the balloon’s actual crash/landling live until they know what happens. What about others?

via Twitter Web Client

Ah, global media! We’re watching a weird but quite minor boy-in-balloon incident. Meanwhile, how many others die?

@WoollyMittens “Need device X to read X’s content” is doomed, long term. I already have laptop and phone. Why buy more?

@cameronreilly Huh? No, Postmodernism wasn’t Joni Mitchell, it was French! http://bit.ly/DefLt

Oh Christ! Now he’s rabbiting on about Postmodernism and clearly he has no fucking clue what it actually means. Anyone got a gun?

Dear Boy At The Next Table, just because you’re gay, you don’t need to speak in a whiney nasal accent ALL the fucking time! Grow up.

@BiteTheDust I shall ask DBCDE, since IMPARJA really needs to know. I think they looked at urban community TV but not remote.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

@BiteTheDust AFAIK there’s no budget for migrating those community-level TV translators to digital. I’ll have to ask!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

@BiteTheDust Maybe you’re all expected to have the satellites.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

@BiteTheDust Digital TV in remote areas? Hmmm… Higher frequencies travel less distance. You may be rooted, Sir!

“Despite all my rage I’m still just a rat in a cage,” for the purists, pedants and nostalgia freaks.

@oliyoung Yeah, I’ve done so much radio over the years, including breakfast, that when the red light’s on I can sound perky even if I’m not.

@faKerryOBrien Oh you poor old thing. I know the Internets are challenging, so perhaps have a scotch and dream of Joe Hockey.

@pc0 @andrewperry I find it depressing that despite rehtoric about being different, geeks follow the same sheeply cycles as the rest.

via Twitter Web Client

@faKerryOBrien Oh well done. Not only are you a fake identity but you make up retweets. Please do satire better kthxbai.

There is something really unsettling about the low level of Internet traffic on Thursday evenings.

@oliyoung LOL! Is ABC Radio 891 Adelaide using sound grabs of me in their promo today? Extracts from http://bit.ly/4xGysL I imagine.

@Cacotopos @alpharia Heh! My knowledge of law just comes from “general knowledge” from too much media work over the years.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh, the 0815 medical appointment is criminal! I suggest you go all prima donna posatl on them!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Cacotopos Criminal court is “beyond reasonable doubt”. Civil court is “balance of probabilities”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cacotopos

@dizzystuff There very fact there’s a prize for “best festival” means there’s far too many to be “special” any more.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@Cacotopos No, copyright infringement became a criminal act when our laws were “harmonised” after the AU-US Free Trade Agreement.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cacotopos

RT @theggerus: I would say “whether it’s an ISP’s job to chase people AFACT think are criminals”. [Yes, maybe better summary.]

via Twitter Web Client

@alpharia @Cacotopos Yes, I am WAY over-simplifying what this case is about. But I’m practicing doing the 3-sentence summary.

via Twitter Web Client

@arvaco There’s 2 more weeks of courtroom hearings starting 2 Nov, then judge’s decisions won’t appear until early 2010.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to arvaco

@Cacotopos Exactly. This case isn’t whether crime is crime, but whether it’s an ISP’s job to chase criminals.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cacotopos

@Cacotopos Yeah, always feral comments on copyright infringement. Some folks forget it IS a crime.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cacotopos

@arvaco I should also mention there’s no more courtroom action until 2 November. Further documents are being pulled etc.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to arvaco

@arvaco Oh, not you. :) Someone else implied Canada was civilised because it was OK to “share” copyrighted material.
