@NewtonMark No road trip. I was on ABC Radio Statewide NSW earlier and a talkback caller was from Stockinbingle.

@grum Schedule 7 only comes into force if you publish your hard drive to the internet. I hope you’ve done that?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to grum

@grum You probably need to pimp yourself to Triple J more. You’re, um, marginally closer to their demographic. [coughs]

@grum You may have spent too much time on Chatroulette, but how are you with Schedule 7 of the Broadcasting Services Act? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to grum

@bastardsheep Agreed, the graph over-simplifies. But as a political weapon, and considering limited historical memory, it’s gorgeous!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bastardsheep

Yes, I was on Triple J’s Hack earlier talking Chatroulette. The program’s podcast is at http://bit.ly/bf9bIy

@BZB You seem to be pre-judging my views on @Westpac and … I am disappointed in you.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BZB

@nazzer This doesn’t actually seem like doing much media at all, compared to The Good Olde Days™.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nazzer

So are we going to have stories tomorrow? Will I be writing one of them? Sigh.

via Twitter Web Client

I think I just managed to be on two radio networks simultaneously. Gn me.

I have now escaped the ABC…

I have entered the ABC…

Remember, you can’t say “Senator Joyce” without experiencing “joy”.

via Cloudhopper

@aqualung I think Sen Joyce would like prograning in Lisp. Endless nested parentheses!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to aqualung

Mobile: Enmore Rd; snack; bus to Broadway; ABC Ultimo; 1745 ABC Radio Statewide NSW to talk… something.

via Twitter Web Client

Yes @phildobbie Government 0.2 would be a good start. Perhaps senator Joyce could do the programming?

via Twitter Web Client

It wasn’t a rhetorical question, @Chrisquirk. I’ll be talking on the radio later today and wanted to be consistent. For a change.

via Twitter Web Client

Indeed @jkerrison I was trained to say “zero” to prevent confusion with the letter “O” in noisy comms channels. Oh well.

via Twitter Web Client

Giving myself a crash refresher on Schedule 7 to the Broadcasting Services Act ‘cos Triple J is interviewing my for Hack shortly.

via Twitter Web Client

We seem to have a clear consensus forming VERY rapidly. It’s “two point oh”. One suggestion it should just be “two”. Thanks all.

via Twitter Web Client

Whaddyareckon the usual Australian pronunciation of “Gov 2.0” is? “Zero”? “Nought”? “Oh”?

@jplonie Sorry I should have said that a certain system also emails the SSL .key file. Arsehats.

Speaking of Karl Stefanovic, here’s further evidence @jdub http://bit.ly/9oitJ1 HT @Yin_Izanami

Dear Unnamed Vendor, what’s the point of securely generating SSL certificates if you them email them everywhere?

via Twitter Web Client

@alexkidman Sorry I didn’t respond to your explanation of NPT earlier. I was in shock. Vivid imagination FTL.

That video of Neda Agha-Soltan’s death? Classification Board has looked at 6 items. 5 were R18+, 1 MA15+.

@ssharwood @Nickhodge Yes, kitteh speak is 100% a sociolect: it’s even used specifically to display membership of a social group!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

@Nickhodge @ssharwood If you change any one of them so it’s a distinguishable variant, you’ve got dialect or sociolect.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge @ssharwood The elements of a lect (language) are phonetics, grammar (syntax), vocabulary, semantics and stylistics, roughly…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@neerav @bacco007 I do ABC Regional Radio variously, not “regular” in a scheduled sense. But no, none of the general shifts are podcast.

via Twitter Web Client

@ssharwood @Nickhodge “Boilerplate” would be a sociolect, I suppose: language used by a particular community / social segment.

@jeffsonstein In Australian “wank” is “masturbate” but “wanker” is “foolish or objectionable” or “self-indulgent or egotistical person”.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

Oh. My comment containing “wankspeak” has been published. http://bit.ly/9GDkH7 Thanks. But there goes the ranty blog post I was writing.

@R_Chirgwin Yeah iTunes Store would prefer an “explicit” tag on that episode. Poor little delicate blossoms that they are.

New “A Series of Tubes” from @R_Chirgwin with me on Buzz, Swindon and censorship, V Sharma on quantum comms. http://bit.ly/b8YEzs

via Twitter Web Client

And I believe I pretty much said that in this week’s “A Series of Tubes” podcast… let me see… Ah yes, here it is!

via Twitter Web Client

Google apologising for “causing concern” proves they simply don’t understand the complete upfuckage of what they did with Buzz.

via Twitter Web Client

No @eddit0r I know plenty of believers in God, Christian and not, who aren’t up-tight prissly middle-class puritans. It’s just Americans. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Indeed @jeffsonstein I think “corporate wanskpeak” to describe Google’s (non-) apology is entirely appropriate. http://bit.ly/9p8irH

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway, @mathewi’s call for Google’s Eric Schmidt to apologise is worth reading even tho he deleted my comment. http://bit.ly/cPEGXS

via Twitter Web Client

The very word. “Profane” comes from “characterised by irreverence or contempt for God or sacred things”. Self-righteous cunts.

via Twitter Web Client

Indeed @harleyd America and its obsessive fear of “profanity” continues to astound me. Shoot someone in the head, not so bad.

via Twitter Web Client

Hah! I think my comment on a US blog just got deleted ‘cos I use the word “wankspeak”. They’re such delicate petals over there.
