Dear @abcnews, if you’d written “dischord” once I’d assume a typo. But consistent mis-spelling? Hint: no “h”. http://bit.ly/cluyR3

Um, I don’t actually want explanations of either of those products, nor of the locations they apply to. Truly.

And from @dellvink a related product from Bangkok. http://bit.ly/aLDiA8 People do know what to send me. [nods]

@bengrubb What’s even better, some of the bonus facts may even be true! Possibly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@engochick It’ll all be fine. I have lots of words. I just need to shuffle them into a coherent narrative and sprinkle it with bonus facts.

Therefore, some head-clearing relaxation is called for. Now where did I put that funnel…?

Thinking that my best strategy is an early night and a fresh, early start tomorrow, since I’m a morning person.

One line from the interview I’m transcribing: “Plagiarism is the cheapest form of market research.”

via Twitter Web Client

Adobe Soundbooth didn’t like transcribing that first interview. Will try another one with the quality turned up.

Rules on GST display http://tinyurl.com/y998t… HT @Nickhodge. I’ll post a screenshot later to show Adobe’s misleading display.

via Twitter Web Client

Also, Adobe, displaying AUD prices ex-GST is a tad lame. Embarrassed to display the actual dollar cost to buy, eh?

via Twitter Web Client

Oh FFS Adobe, it’s just a .dmg file! Why can’t I just download it without installing Akami monitoring software? Control freaks!

@yeebok I believe Nuance’s speech recognition products are all for Windows, not OS X?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to yeebok

No @Andrew303 I hadn’t tried Soundbooth for speech-to-text. http://bit.ly/1pFCmu will give it a try on one interview now! Ta.

@overingtonc Oh it’s OK for you News Corp types, what with that cellar full of gold bullion and the jewel-encrusted keyboards. ;)

@jason_a_w I am looking at transcription services, yes, but alas these recordings from Friday must be a completed feature article tomorrow.

Transcribing. Interviews. Is. Really. Tedious. But. I. Am. Half. Done. Approximately.

@SnarkyPlatypus Oui, je suis comme Donna Summer de tant de façons différentes.

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, je n’ai pas besoin d’incitation au travail. Je suis déjà s’installer dans un rythme confortable de travail.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. La matinée a été agréable. Et maintenant, l’ennui de la transcription. Et vous? Comment est votre foie?

Careful readers may note that Operation “The Sunday Plan will begin in approximately one hour” has not been entirely successful to date.

Going off-grid to concentrate on writing and production for most of the day. @replies responded to this evening. Enjoy your Monday.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour! Les mots! Les mots coulent comme des choeur de jeunes filles pendant la pleine lune!

First burst of writing begins. Heads down.

Mon plan: Finish 2000-word feature by 1200 (!); produce “Patch Monday” podcast by 1600; all while cleaners and gardener interrupt. Erk.

@TheBloggess This idea that a “cultural institution” must have some grand physical presence: “edifice complex”, I’ve seen it called.
