Listening to interviews with Senator Conroy, finding certain grabs for “Patch Monday”. My life is truly wonderful.

I take that back, HP. That’s Apple reporting the total size of all downloads.

via TweetDeck

Dear HP, how the fuck can a “printer driver update” be 443MB compressed?

via TweetDeck

Goodness @expectproblems, shall there be the consumption of alcoholic beverages at Byteside tonight? I am… perturbed!

via TweetDeck

RT @BernardKeane: My goodness, I have a whole drawerfull of brown paper bags for you here if you need them. [Please RT]

Podcast from last night’s ABC RN filterfest with Sen Conroy, @NewtonMark, @coljac, others http://bit.ly/df2sUS

via TweetDeck

Apologies to Sen Conroy. Last night he did say “Eric Schmidt”, not “Smith”. He mumbled, I misheard. Still, the point about Google was odd.

Reminder / Warning: I’m on the panel for Byteside Tech tonight. http://bit.ly/uOLWs I forget who else is, ask @seamus

Dear Politics Junkies, what @rbbrown said just then is 100% correct. http://bit.ly/9kiDwE

The nutters always emerge in the comments, @SnarkyPlatypus, we should start collecting them. In a little room with no windows. Or light.

via TweetDeck

Your point re Hamilton/Webber is already noted, @bernietb http://bit.ly/bos1mq but you can still claim first audio-comment rights.

@SnarkyPlatypus C’est la pleine lune aujourd’hui. Il ne peut pas dormir. Je ne peux pas dormir. Il ya… des monstres.

The US has lost the War on Drugs, so the winner chooses the next moves. http://bit.ly/a6T7yJ

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, ce n’est pas la pluie. Il a plus de cheveux que ça, et il est plus fort.

Phil Collins had many problems, @andrewdotnich

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il ya quelque chose d’étrange dans l’air ce matin. J’ai une certaine sensation tactile. Et vous?

New blog post: “The 9pm Edict #9http://bit.ly/ap9ULf

via TweetDeck

Listening back to “The 9pm Edict” before posting it.

via TweetDeck

Starting to record the Edict…

via TweetDeck

If anyone wants to leave an audio comment for “The 9pm Edict” tonight, there’s still time. http://bit.ly/bsQQIX

via TweetDeck

@andrewdotnich You mentioned the virtues of awk earlier today. I think I love you.

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

Where does the internet filter support come from, @jasonlangenauer? http://bit.ly/62JE1e

via TweetDeck

Retreating from the Twitterburble to write “The 9pm Edict” (which shall be somewhat late, again).

via TweetDeck

And consider, @bernietb [and others], this may not have been Senator Conroy’s idea. He has a job to do, remember… ;)

via TweetDeck

Think more broadly, @bernietb, about the political pressures on Conroy. Where did the plan come from? “Cui bono?”

via TweetDeck

Actually @bernietb @markreeves thinking of Conroy as stupid is wrong. He’s not. “He’s an idiot” will cloud your analysis.

via TweetDeck

@PeterBlackQUT Google gets coverage of its filter criticism. Conroy’s strategy is now reduced to play-the-man, apparently.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

Hilarious! Sen Conroy doesn’t know Eric Schmidt (not “Smith”!) is the hired-help CEO of Google, not a founder.

via TweetDeck

Nah @trib it’s not “trying to sound reasonable”, I can hear a real tension in Conroy’s voice, or some other kind of discomfort.

via TweetDeck

@aramadge Terms like “100% accurate” have a second half, “accurate at what”. Conroy is defining his accuracy against a tiny, defined list.

via TweetDeck

While I wont tweet every word of this radio piece, Conroy’s performance on Radio National right now is fucking woeful. Defensive, dull.

via TweetDeck

@oliverw The DVD problem is that the drive isn’t even recognising the black media, it doesn’t even get to the burn. But ta.

via TweetDeck in reply to oliverw

@JonoH All of YouTube, Viddler and Vimeo have private videos. Presumably some others too.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

Meanwhile, I’m wondering what I shall talk about in “The 9pm Edict” tonight. Wine may help. Cheap wine, even more so.

via TweetDeck

Reminder: Conroy to debate filter with EFA, Newton, Lumby on ABC Radio National 6pm AEDT http://bit.ly/ddXYnH

New “Patch Monday” podcast via @zdnetaustralia: “Refused Classification means what, exactly?” http://bit.ly/d1Oh4j

via TweetDeck

Oh whacko. My MacBook Pro now has the same “I refuse to recognise blank DVD-Rs” problem as @ApostrophePong’s. CONSPIRACY!

via TweetDeck

Warm rain-spotted road / cat strolls, mynahs swoop, screech / He is disgruntled.

via Cloudhopper

“Patch Monday” podcast filed! Ping @engochick and celebrate which little coloured whistle things!

via TweetDeck

In “studio mode”, putting together the “Patch Monday” podcast.

via TweetDeck

Yep, @thewinchesterau, and SenConroy’s piece on The 7pm Project is also on the program website. http://bit.ly/aaXqrc Already dubbed.

via TweetDeck

@michaelmeloni On The 7pm project he just mentioned child abuse / bestiality / incest / rape. I’m after wording he uses for crime-related.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelmeloni

Filter: Conroy to debate EFA, Newton, Lumby tonight http://bit.ly/ddXYnH

via TweetDeck

Indeed @Cacotopos The 7pm Project interview is a classic listing. He didn’t even mention “detained instruction in crime” for that.

via TweetDeck

Quite possibly, @michaelmeloni, but I need a recent example of how the Good Senator describes what’s in Refused Classification.

via TweetDeck

How cute. “The 7pm Project” has a little whoosh noise after every intro item and each news story. That gives me an idea for the Edict…

via TweetDeck

Teaching ducks to dance.

via TweetDeck

But @bernietb ANYONE is susceptible to emotional / psychological persuasions, and that over-rides logic in most cases.

via TweetDeck

As always @bernietb consider who the audience is. This was ABC Radio National at 6pm.

via TweetDeck

Sen Conroy mentioned Google’s Buzz problem, @bernietb, to discredit Google / their filter submission. http://bit.ly/8YORK9

via TweetDeck

Yes @jamezpolley Sen Conroy missed / smudged the entire point. Eric Schmidt’s views are not Brin’s and Page’s. Accident? Deliberate?

via TweetDeck

@toucansays I think I might leave further expansion as an exercise for the reader. For now. Wait until after dusk.

via TweetDeck in reply to RedWMurray

@toucansays You know, “There are other people in here *moans*” is a handy sentence in other contexts too…
