@thetowncrier Chasing POTUS and fighting lawyers, eh? Connected? You’ll get into trouble!

Escaped from ABC, en route home.

via Cloudhopper

I am now at the ABC waiting for my turn. Explaining Skyhooks to the young producer. Why, I’m not sure.

via TweetDeck

Replacing bus with train, as a grand experiment. It’s CityRail, so what could go wrong?

via Cloudhopper

OK, mobile again: Bus to Broadway then meander to ABC Ultimo for a bit of talking on the wireless. 1745 ABC Radio NSW Statewide. No stream.

@Jinjirrie Oh people tweeting TV programs I’m not watching shits me to tears! I need a better way of filtering it out!

via TweetDeck in reply to Jinjirrie

@Jinjirrie Don’t ask me about TV. I don’t watch TV. Well, I watch “Media Watch” on ABC iView, and see random shit at the gym or pub, is all.

via TweetDeck in reply to Jinjirrie

You know @NewtonMark @simonhackett, “Bullshit Bat” sounds like a really low grade superhero… ;)

via TweetDeck

I’m trying to debunk “You nerds should spend time in the real world, not at your computers”. I think TV suffers not social life. Want stats.

via TweetDeck

Ah yes @Tamarajawad @SoniaLastrega @TRON_Lord I’m after actual science. The plural of “anecdote” is not “data”.

“Also on NineMSN, Suburb Sex! Wife-swapping swinging secrets” http://bit.ly/bgSw0c

via TweetDeck

Has anyone seen convincing evidence that people socialise less/more face-to-face thanks to internet?

via TweetDeck

RT @dfg77: Does that mean we need to punch emo kids in the face? [Yes. Yes it does. Repeatedly. And with secret inner pleasure.]

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Grinding to “I Should Be So Lucky” would be weird. [True. But what on-hold music are you grinding to, exactly?]

via TweetDeck

School anti-bullying programs make life difficult for the US Army. http://bit.ly/aG0v27

via TweetDeck

I think @thetowncrier has been distracted by @SnarkyPlatypus’ inappropriate grinding to music. I would worry about that.

via TweetDeck

“I wonder whether @sophblack or @thetowncrier will reply to my emails today?” he asks, passive-aggressively…

via TweetDeck

MI5 is worried about sex. Chinese sex. http://bit.ly/c7ZhdE

Mr Byrne never sent me any “exclusive messages” anyway, they were the same as to everyone else. He’s a fibber.

via TweetDeck

“If you unsubscribe, you won’t be able to receive any exclusive messages or offers from David Byrne.” Yes. Good. I have moved on, David.

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I always wonder whether I ought to bring a protractor when engaging in circular conversations. [No. Compass. Stabbing.]

via TweetDeck

Guy Rundle’s Crikey piece on the politics of climate change is somewhat insightful. http://bit.ly/99A7CI

Mobile: Enmore Rd; errand to King St; quiet writing spot for Edictation; bus to Railway Sq; 1745 ABC Radio Statewide NSW.

via TweetDeck

Exactly @Cacotopos, being a tool has a more wilful, deliberate aspect to it. Does boorish or obnoxious fit in there?

via TweetDeck

Pondering what to say in “The 9pm Edict” tonight. There’s still time to make an audio comment. http://bit.ly/apF7LU

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… Macquarie Dictionary glosses “tool” as “stupid person”. I reckon it’s stronger than that, but how to describe it?

via TweetDeck

@franksting According to Skype, you’ve been listening to Nirvana’s “Tourette’s” for about 3 months now. Not sick of it yet?

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

This goat is lazy. It should be doing the pulling. http://bit.ly/bEtKHS HT to my SEKRIT goat correspondent.

via TweetDeck

@jeamland I wouldn’t trust any electronic voting kit. There is no problem to be solved. Pencil & paper is perfectly transpare@renailemayemay

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

The scale I’m considering is the “national secrets plausible deniability discovered 30 years later” kind of SEKRIT.

via TweetDeck

That said, “absence of evidence” is not the same thing as “evidence of absence”.

via TweetDeck

I agree however that singling out Huawai may be unfair @renailemay since everybody spies on everybody else anyway.

via TweetDeck

Ah! “Greek telephone tapping case 2004-2005” http://bit.ly/dgGBXu HT @daveoflynn @anthonybaxter

via TweetDeck

And also as a sysadmin, @renailemay, I reckon the level of hidey I’m talking about would slice straight through ‘cos it’d be new.

via TweetDeck

But @renailemay you wouldn’t turn on a DEEP SEKRIT back door or kill switch until you really needed it. A nuclear option.

via TweetDeck

RT @renailemay: Oh come on. If there was dodgy code in Huawei’s kit, Telstra/Optus engineers would detect it FFS. [Is it really that easy?]

via TweetDeck

Yeah @renailemay it’s great that we might let a PLA-owned vendor install closed-source hardware in our national comms networks. Not.

via TweetDeck

Wow that seems to have hit a few buttons. Thanks @artywah @rorybaust @Bruceeverett @jplonie @jjprojects @samhighley @JohnDobbin @AOCarr

via TweetDeck

RT @domknight: It’d be a blast. [Now that was both fast thinking and truly groanworthy… Well played, Sir!]

via TweetDeck

@nicster If Ticketek have the contract to do ticketing for an event, that’s where you have to buy the tickets.

via TweetDeck in reply to nicster

What would happen if you prevented sub-editors using puns in headlines for a whole week? Would they explode?

via TweetDeck

I thought the headline was more groanworthy, @kristinmoore2: “Dancing goat ‘like a kid’” [guffaws]

via TweetDeck

I think a Chinese Dancing Goat represents the perfect start to a tired Friday. http://bit.ly/cklRhB

@thomasrdotorg Vaudeville, Sir. Always leave the fans wanting more. Or something.

via TweetDeck in reply to thomasrdotorg

Yes @Zombie_Plan I’ll eventually write up full details of the production process, both process-wise and tech-wise.

via TweetDeck

I’ve decided there won’t be an Edict tonight. It takes longer to write / record / prep / upload than I have energy for tonight. Tomorrow?

via TweetDeck

Well @HyperBrendan I’d scheduled an Edict but to be honest I’m rather tired and uninspired so I’ll decide in the next few minutes.

via TweetDeck

Tired, but trying to get inspired for “The 9pm Edict”. I wonder what I’ll write about momentarily?

via TweetDeck

Ah no @bgosford it was more “All My Friends Are Getting Married”. It’s such a drab little tune.

via TweetDeck

@SoniaLastrega Ta for those stats. I’ll do some reading in the morning. :)
