Yes, 3rd world debt cancellation. Important But why should I care what an 80s rock star says as opposed to, say, an economist?

The Lancet blasts aid agencies in Haiti: more concerned with self-promotion. http://bit.ly/5lIrV0

via Twitter Web Client

OK, so I’m getting a few that say “yes”. But do you care because it’s an issue you care about, or because Bono is voicing the thought?

via Twitter Web Client

No @macsnorky, I don’t block people (except spammers etc). But, do you indeed care what Bono thinks? I’m curious, not judgemental.

via Twitter Web Client

@headygoodness Oh, now I want to know what you referring to! Posts from the past are… intriguing?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to besselheimplate

It says (not that it’s to be trusted or cared about) that I have 3887 followers. Does even ONE of you give a toss about what Bono thinks?

One TV shows cricket, one tennis. Two parties quietly haggle with the barman over which audio shall prevail.

via Twitter Web Client

Even will all doors wide open, the corner pub is still sweaty. The breeze, it does nothing. Conversation is subdued.

via Twitter Web Client

Lightning over… Clovelly, maybe? A tungsten-cloud horizon as dusk falls, a warm humid breeze, but it won’t rain here. Maybe tomorrow.

She’s turned on by his extensive tattoos, compliments him. Nervously. He did just ask if there’s metal on her iPod. Ah, Desire!

via Cloudhopper

OH: “Maybe the Internet’s the way to go, I dunno.” Young arty-looking woman, long black hair, black skirt.

via Cloudhopper

Bankstown train. Only 5 others on lower deck. 3 use iPhones. 2, older, read broadsheet newspapers.

via Cloudhopper

Central. Change trains. It’s quiet in the evening heat. Party people still at The Big Day Out? Gone for pseudo long weekend?

via Cloudhopper

Tall young man with nasal accent explains charts in “Best Bets” to Chinese girlfriend. She listens dutifully. Explains “gelding” with tact.

via Cloudhopper

@crispin_harris Nah Crikey naming me in the headline isn’t an honour. It’s more a warning and so they can redirect blame.

Departing North Sydney. Should I stop in the CBD a while, or go straight to the village?

via Cloudhopper

Mount Street Terrace Hotel, it says. [enters]

@fictillius My alleyway video is currently on the SBS website. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

@fictillius If it’s all the same, um, no I shan’t help you with firewall configuration.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

Now, a decision needs to be made. Continue in North Sydney or go to… where?

via Twitter Web Client

Found it. You can stop looking now.

via Twitter Web Client

This must be what it’s like to have an iPhone.

via Twitter Web Client

Bother. Did I forget to bring my spare phone battery with me? I may run out of Internets sooner than planned. Poo.

via Twitter Web Client

Whacko! It was 41.2C at Sydney Olympic Park and Bankstown today, 41.5C at Penrith. OK, so maybe it IS hot @R_Chirgwin.

via Twitter Web Client

That said @BernardKeane can it beat @firstdogonmoon’s “Bum Fun 3: Lodged” as the Jasper & Abigail porno title? I suspect not.

via Twitter Web Client

@BernardKeane You know, I do like “noted BBC fan James Murdoch” as a descriptor. http://bit.ly/7plW8I

via Twitter Web Client

Right @Cacotopos @Tim_Coronel @PointZeroOne @oliyoung @bleeters so it’s about hands-free not about the device. Yes, hands on wheel please!

via Twitter Web Client

Huh? @bleeters It’s illegal to use your phone’s satnav in Tasmania? That is just weird.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge I couldn’t see the driver’s, erm, chest from the angle I was looking. But if you don’t recall driving in North Sydney…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Nokia to offer free satnav on 20M smartphones. http://bit.ly/7GWFpl

Interview recorded. Loose in North Sydney.

via Cloudhopper

Hmmm… Either @Nickhodge has lost weight and had a sex change, or that’s not his red Mini.

via Cloudhopper

OK, off to record this interview. Baxoon.

via Twitter Web Client

@ParisSite It’s worth RTing even with follower overlap, yes. Not everyone sees every tweet. I only catch some friends’ stuff on an RT.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DavidParis

@WoollyMittens How long have you been in town, and how long are you here for?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WoollyMittens

“Paywall’d”, I mean. You get through it with money, not fire. Hang on, the fire’s NOT meant to get through a firewall. Language is fucked.

via Twitter Web Client

Me in Crikey: “Clinton declares cyber war on China” http://bit.ly/5Hh89H [Firewall’d, I think.]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @R_Chirgwin: 37 at Bankstown, 38 Penrith, 37 Olympic Park … perhaps it is that hot! [OK, but are you sure that’s not Google’s revenue?]

via Twitter Web Client

“Due to extreme heat, trains are running at reduced speed”? Wtf? It’s not that hot!

via Cloudhopper

I see censorship advocates are rebranding “civil society” to mean “polite” instead of civic institutions.

@franksting I saw the Google numbers. I am wrong. I’ve been too busy to fix the chart yet tho. Later today.

@artsdigitalera I believe this is the article on re-framing you were after. http://bit.ly/5VHBlS

@SnarkyPlatypus I suggest a vodka or three before the recording session. It’s a lovely day for it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Smirks. Guffaws. Giggles. Snickers. ROFLs.

Hey everyone! @SnarkyPlatypus is recording his first single this afternoon! It’s an Australia Day special!

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, I know of Macross, I have see a little. http://bit.ly/4Q4wAS But which character are you?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus “We are living in fear. Perhaps you can sing us a song to calm our nervousness.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Nous vivons dans la peur. Peut-ĂȘtre que vous pouvez nous chanter une chanson pour calmer notre nervositĂ©.

@lewellyn Put it this way, does he look worth travelling to Nevada for? At USD 300 an hour? I think not.

Meanwhile, Artemis is nowhere to be found. Normally, she’d be demanding food. There is, however, a freshly-dead rat outside the back door.

Apollo, having decided that my notebook is getting more attention than he is, flops onto it, head first. Writing up notes becomes trickier.

I must be ill. I just stopped myself posting a really nasty sarcastic tweet.

via Twitter Web Client

@TunaCrust The dynamic changes somewhat when the followed/followers is an order of magnitude bigger. And it’s Friday.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TunaCrust

@TunaCrust I get what you mean, but for me “person X talks with person Y a lot” isn’t that helpful. As always, YMMV.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TunaCrust

@_Soliloquy_ No I don’t mean the hashtags, I mean the auto-created lists via http://bit.ly/3nxz7N

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Soliloquy13

Not that I use Twitter lists. The world has a surfeit of pointless taxonomies as it is.

via Twitter Web Client

I’ve decided that the “conversationlist” Twitter lists are perfectly fucking useless. No context. No curation. Just more meaningless stats.

via Twitter Web Client

Great. Somebody just put U2 on the jukebox. Well. Fucking. Done. Why do you mock me, God?

via Twitter Web Client

Wow lots of responses. Thank you. I’ll have to turn them into a blog post or cynical podcast or something. I should think aloud more often.

via Twitter Web Client

I guess I just don’t get the appeal of “celebrity”. :/ I see “Bono says…” and skip over. YMMV, I guess.
