The lace dress is soiled. :(

All that said, it’s time for me to turn into a small porcelain doll with a lace dress. [exit]

@johnhalton I don’t disagree, but it’s about getting the ignorant punters to care.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to johnthelutheran

@johnhalton Indeed, “plays on any device” is a better PR tag that “DRM free”. Geeks have no clue. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to johnthelutheran

@johnhalton Even now I don’t think music DRM is known outside geekdom. I shall do a vox pop and see!

@johnhalton I dunno that anyone apart from Deep Geeks give a toss about DRM. There’s a PR challenge!

@PeterBlackQUT I will therefore call you “Pete” in public and only mock you gently. ;)

RT @jdub: My DIRIGIBLE of Disappointment is deeply distraught. [I can understand this. I would be too.]

via Twitter Web Client

@smperris Um, I think comments on my website get held for moderation if they have more than N links, for some value of N.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

Yes @jason_a_w, to the iPad whingers I have a simple message: If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. Der.

via Twitter Web Client

@jdub Yes yes, your Zeppelin of Disappointment has been hovering over my house all week. ;)

“Pete” Black, eh? How hip and cool with the young folk! ;) Ping @PeterBlackQUT

@bengrubb Thank you. The target is 15 to 20 mins = average train journey.

@juhasaarinen In particular, the transition from “Duck & Cover” to the next speaker makes no sense. http://bit.ly/cmz0dP

via Twitter Web Client in reply to juhasaarinen

@juhasaarinen By “long-arc editing” I mean making the whole program a coherent paced narrative, not just each piece neatly joining the next.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to juhasaarinen

@jasonlangenauer There’s a difference between “mental relaxation” and “giving your brain to commercial TV mind-vampires”.

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb There’s some really shitty long-arc editing in Patch Monday this week. I’m not happy. http://bit.ly/cmz0dP

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@jeffjarvis And only 10% of the population have ever really “created content”, so nothing changes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffjarvis

@jeffjarvis I think you’re right. iPad is PRECISELY a device for content consumption. But it will win at that, I reckon.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffjarvis

No @kofeyh of course I”m not fucking well watching it!

via Twitter Web Client

Why are you people even watching “My Kitchen Rules”? Have you no self respect? It’s pure prole-fodder!

@unsungsongs Police helicopters do all manner of “track and illuminate suspect” stuff. Could be chasing a guy with a knife, a stolen car…

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Jug of sangria o kudasai. [That is a truly beautiful sentence. It speaks to me. And I listen.]

@ivovic Typo noted. The appropriate authorities have been informed. Thank you.

New “Patch Monday” podcast: CCTV surveillance and Rudd laptops. http://bit.ly/diNC73

If I were getting an advert made up, I’d choose someone who could write grammatical English.

@renailemay I figured someone else would’ve been reading NSW police media releases. Now I know. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

@engochick Are you SURE you’re a proper editor? You’re so NICE!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to engochick

@renailemay @iTnews_au Actually I tweeted the iPhone fraud story on Saturday. ;) http://bit.ly/9Dmfxd

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

Yay! “Patch Monday” podcast filed! Ping @engochick! Break out the champagne and those little cake things!

via Twitter Web Client

Well, that’s enough joy for the moment. Quick leg stretch, then kettle, then back to work. Periscope down.

via Twitter Web Client

No @theburgerman I don’t think it’s bore water. It comes out at a fully-squirtable mains pressure.

via Twitter Web Client

Wondering whether it’s un-Australian to dob in a neighbour to Sydney Water for hosing down their concrete every second fucking day.

via Twitter Web Client

Target 1 achieved: The feature story has been filed. Well, a near-final draft has. Lunch now, then tackle the podcast.

@NewtonMark I only used the word “electioneering” ‘cos “election commentary” didn’t fit in the tweet. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

Anyway, having seen what today’s topic for recreational outrage will be, I’m off to do some billable hours.

via Twitter Web Client

Well @kathoc at ABC Radio, during election campaigns, we did take all talkback caller’s names. Do they still now? I dunno.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh FFS, I don’t approve of SA’s actions! Have I not just been bagging them out? But “Freedom of speech” is the wrong frame.

via Twitter Web Client

I guess it’s not well-known outside media that election comment / leaflets / advertising always had to have a full name on it.

via Twitter Web Client

No @weezmgk SA isn’t criminalising political speech, they’re criminalising anonymous electioneering. It was always the case, now online too.

via Twitter Web Client

People calling the SA election comment laws an assault on freedom need to get a grip, I think.

via Twitter Web Client

Tue plan: AM desk stuff, many emails; lunch; errands; haircut; PM work in CBD eyrie; 1800 Byteside recording http://bit.ly/uOLWs

via Twitter Web Client

I don’t quite see how SA’s law stops debate, it just won’t be enforceable. How many blogs? How many commenters? Laughably stupid.

via Twitter Web Client

South Australia creates totally unworkable law on Internet comments. Fuckwits. http://bit.ly/ccMjBF HT many.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve had strange dreams for the last couple of days, but I will have to discuss them another time.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je ne suis pas sûr que «inspirer» est le verbe raison. http://bit.ly/tzyf4 Peut-être cette place? http://bit.ly/nNjJ4

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Ce soir je vais parler de l’avenir. Où puis-je acheter une combinaison en lycra?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I’ll be at Byteside tonight talking The Future with @mpesce @thetimdean and host @seamus http://bit.ly/uOLWs

@thegrenville No, no strategy. I just get frustrated when I turn to “news” but discover that it’s not news for me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thegrenville

It’s not so much a “news cycle” as a “deformed dwarf in an ox cart”, ah @abcnews?

via Twitter Web Client

So @abcnews reports last night http://bit.ly/bZ9LD9 a 22 Jan Nielsen blog http://bit.ly/6EQXBT I saw 6 days ago http://bit.ly/9qVFKT
