@Warlach Twitter Lists will spur another round of pseudo-analysis of “influence”. Shits me beyond belief.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@pressdarling So which shits you more? Being listed as “amusing” or an “influencer”? http://bit.ly/ybX5X

via Twitter Web Client

My interest has been logged.

via Twitter Web Client

How people are choosing to categorise others for their Twitter “lists” reveals more about their own worldview than they may realise.

@franksting I suspect has an existence beyond our mere mortal frames.

RT @jasonlangenauer: One better on the bald with long hair stakes: Mr Kidd… gay killer from Diamonds are Forever http://bit.ly/QBYdu

@drearyclocks @blonde_lili I do not understand your sexuality. But welcome to the world.

via Twitter Web Client

@eltonstewart Nick Cave is in a whole separate category, however. There’s still some hair there too. http://bit.ly/dfI9K

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eltonstewart

I don’t understand balding men who still try to grow long hair at the sides, emphasising their baldness. http://bit.ly/4pDtme

RT @grum: I’m so hard right now!

via Twitter Web Client

OH A: “Last time I was there I was on mushrooms and it was packed, and it was awesome”. B: “Acid in public is really hard.”

via Twitter Web Client

Two tweets ago I failed to properly balance a quote mark. I am sorry.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear. Movember was invented in Adelaide. http://bit.ly/2TREl

@SnarkyPlatypus Having just re-watched “The Shave”, it’s not “vagabond”, it’s “erotic! http://bit.ly/47Dz6e

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@peterhau I dunno re Movember. Normally I’m more “just give them the money” than gimmicks, but… dunno… Am I now “celebrity”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterhau

Wondering whether I should actually play the Movember game. http://bit.ly/PrAMx I mean, remember “The Shave”! http://bit.ly/47Dz6e

RT @dobes: iiNet’s copyright crucible heats up http://bit.ly/4Ertfd @LiamT looks at what is coming up in the AFACT v iiNet case next week.

@iain_chalmers Yes, “negative budgetary impact” was in Ben Sandiland’s Crikey piece about the Joint Strike Fighter. http://bit.ly/3dfUph

via Twitter Web Client in reply to iain_chalmers

@mtats I AM NOT FUCKING WELL “QUICK TO ANGER” YOU JUDGEMENTAL PRICK! GO FUCK YOURSELF!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mtats

Thanks, @JPlatnum @aramadge @NewtonMark @GeordieGuy @iain_chalmers @mtats etc. It was, um, a rhetorical question. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Why do people say “negative budgetary impact” instead of “cost”? Fools.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; lunch; local errands; afternoon writingsomewhere. I am so predictable. Mostly.

via Twitter Web Client

@grum What sort of moose sat on your face? Was it… sexy?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to grum

@eskimo_sparky Actually, I think they should START smoking crack. Lots of it. Enough to kill them out of their idiotic obsessions.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @eskimo_sparky: People suggesting that “influence” will be measured by the number of lists one’s on should stop smoking crack.

via Twitter Web Client

@gabfran In business, lawyers seem to close everything down, fearful of “risk”. Don’t talk to customers. Don’t be open. Unhelpful IMO.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ShoesandYoga

@steven_noble @mumbrell SR7 says “discretion, integrity and client confidentiality”. Shoosh! It’s all SEKRIT LAWYAZ!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to steven_noble

How to improve your use of social media: get lawyers involved. Sigh. http://bit.ly/KxtkE HT @mumbrella

RT @jeamland: Replacing a bloke with a chick == positive discrimination == left-wing bias == THE IMMIGRANTS WILL STEAL MY FLATSCREEN TV

via Twitter Web Client

@BernardKeane Exactly. It’s weird knee-jerk logic. “Left wing” seems to be some catch-all category of “bad” used by idiots.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

“CNET River”! River of news? Or undifferentiated sewer? http://bit.ly/20BXeg HT @ChrisSaad

via Twitter Web Client

What sort of tool thinks “left wing bias” is relevant to the ABC Good Game story (see comments)? http://bit.ly/4DvcyK

via Twitter Web Client

So what’s this “new analysis and opinion online initiative” the ABC is setting up? http://bit.ly/efrrh

via Twitter Web Client

Sat plan: 1215 Apple Store, Sydney CBD, my first time there and I hope the last; gym & food w@SnarkyPlatypusypus, probably.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il semble que je dois assister au palais de Steve et rendre hommage. Aussi, je me sens comme de la merde. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I have a theory that recording and editing video makes time go even faster still. I choose not to test my theory.

via Twitter Web Client

Typing makes time go faster. Just that typing then has made a while 40 minutes go by, says my screen.

via Twitter Web Client

The lovely-sounding Gavin at Apple Support is locating a power supply that I can collect today.

via Twitter Web Client

@NewtonMark According to the number on my screen, I can run on batteries for almost 4 hours provided I don’t actually do anything.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

That extra 3.5 hours of “sleep” was not really sleep, and I still feel… less than adequate.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Canberra is the perfect place for talking about chickens. But you did choose to go there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@franksting I am up early because my sleep patterns are completely geb0rken and I have no brain. Your excuse?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@Nickhodge I see Mr Manners hasn’t paid you a visit yet this morning.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Emerges. Actually I emerged a while ago but I didn’t want to reveal the fact. It’s a more respectable time now.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, shutting down computer to deal with power supply loss.

via Twitter Web Client

@frogworth It’s no big deal. The DC cable out of the transformer has failed to deal with wear. Apple should just replace it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to frogworth

@frogworth I have AppleCare on this device so if they don’t solve it within 5 minutes I will mock them severely.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to frogworth

@frogworth I will attempt the Apple Store drama tomorrow. I must admit, I fear the Kool-Aid aspects of it all.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to frogworth

So, the power supply for my MacBook Pro is rooted. How long will my batteries last and what idiocy must I deal with to get it replaced?

via Twitter Web Client

@kissability I especially choose not to explore @michaelmeloni’s secret desires. Wait. Hang on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kissability

@ordinarytanya I have no idea what you’re referring to, but “female” = “adult woman” seems a fair thing to me. What am I missing?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ordinarytanya

@Warlach I can create lists that serve myself using Tweetdeck’s “groups”. But the process is very flexible, like that day’s conference.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@pressdarling One can never underestimate the cluefulness of humanity. Truly. Also, are you really a “total fuckwit”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pressdarling

@gabfran I would never disagree with an attractive professional woman.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ShoesandYoga

@Warlach I don’t see much value for me in Twitter lists. Blindly follow people ‘cos someone else categorised them? Bah!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

The ABC is seriously fucking up over this Good Game host thing. http://bit.ly/j2vkW

@jenbishopsydney I’m speaking at Media140 on 5/11 so no for me! :) And am I even a “journo”?
