Oh what rubbish! You can wrap me in proscuitto if you want and it’ll be 200% better that any television!

Well hang on now @iDarryl obviously a tweet about ELO would be sixteen kinds of magic all at once.

via TweetDeck

So are any of these people on Masterchef rootable? Like, without drugs?

via TweetDeck

Hang on. What? People actually WATCH “Masterchef”? Like, people who have the internet still watch it? Gosh.

via TweetDeck

Again, I am astounded by the interest that a Lady Gaga tweet generated. Like the Spice Girls tweet. Odd.

via TweetDeck

Acting against my better judgement.

via TweetDeck

Oh @MarnieBristow *arsetable* was just a silly response to someone’s *headdesk*. Maybe it’s the next step? Use it as you will!

via TweetDeck

I suspect that young man in the video for Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” isn’t particularly interested in Lady Gaga’s advances.

Talking someone out of drinking Red Bull.

Word is there’s desperate state-level political staffers looking for somewhere to sleep tonight in Canberra. Fancy a bit, anyone?

via TweetDeck

Wow “gearfaggotry” is such an excellent word! And this is a fine diagram about photographers. http://bit.ly/aaBsyF HT whoever it was.

via TweetDeck

Excellent, the moment of celebration can return. Thank you YouTube and @SnarkyPlatypus http://bit.ly/4JsRL

via TweetDeck

RT @PeterBlackQUT: this is my last tweet from @PeterBlackQUT [Thank Christ for that!]

via TweetDeck

Now don’t distract me, @macleanbrendan, we still have the challenge to sort out!

via TweetDeck

O NOES! NO SPICE GIRLS VIDEOZ! “A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation”, says YouTube. HURRY UP!

via TweetDeck

Wow, the Spice Girls seem to have perked up the mood somewhat. I think this calls for a celebration!

via TweetDeck

True love is always a compromise, @macleanbrendan As is lust. But a different kind of compromise.

via TweetDeck

True @mareenotmarie the Westpac car with the “I <3 the Inner West” signage is quite a hoot. http://twitpic.com/1gpgad

“I was made for lovin’ you baby, you were made for lovin’ me. And I can’t get enough of you baby, can you give enough to me?”

via TweetDeck

OH, two women talking: “No, it’s OK, he’s 16. Well, he’s 16 this August.”

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; lunch; minor local errands; afternoon writing spot (probably). Will it end up being an “Edict”?

via TweetDeck

New “Patch Monday” podcast via @zdnetaustralia: “SMBs, you need to back-up too” http://bit.ly/9QxUgJ

via TweetDeck

And here’s the relevant bit from “Expert Performance and Deliberate Practice” http://bit.ly/uXA1X

via TweetDeck

RT @alexburns: Gladwell’s ‘Outliers’ source is K Anders Ericsson’s work, see Ericsson (2000) and later: http://is.gd/byP6c

via TweetDeck

Ah yes, Trumpet Winsock, @Cacotopos @iDarryl, for everyone who didn’t get a Mac and have such capabilities built in. ;)

via TweetDeck

(And yes, rules of thumb like that are very fuzzy and we can always find exceptions. Such pedantry can be tedious.)

via TweetDeck

Oh yes, @Colvinius, apparently it’s in Malcolm Gladwell’s “Outliers”, so there’ll be references to actual research in that.

via TweetDeck

Actually, it was talk of about 10,000 hours, which translates into 10 years. Maybe some kind soul will find the reference for me…

via TweetDeck

Actually you can put a time limit on expert-ness, @benrhughes, there’s evidence that it takes about 10 years to master any given field.

via TweetDeck

RT @Colvinius: “‘guru’ is a useful word for people who can’t spell ‘charlatan’”. Francis Wheen. Ping @servantofchaos

via TweetDeck

True, @franksting, calling yourself “ninja” makes you even more of a wanker than “guru”. http://bit.ly/9E0aWy

via TweetDeck

Anyone who calls themselves “expert” in a field less than 10yo is a liar, @bernietb, and anyone calling themselves “guru” is a wanker.

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed! Ping @engochick and time for a long hot shower. They’re not related tasks. You people disgust me.

via TweetDeck

RT @jonoabroad: If every other c*nt is a social media expert, then I see no problem with lying about engineering & economics as well. [True]

via TweetDeck

“Please submit to the Down Under Feminist Carnival”, @fugitive_sound @rachelhills? I didn’t realise it was that sort of carnival! Gosh.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus La vie est toujours améliorée avec l’utilisation de poudre blanche.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Reassuringly, the tech support guy at Network Solutions seemed to know what he’s talking about. This is a curly problem, tho, so we’ll see.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: See if anyone at Network Solutions actually knows how the internet works; lunch at Rockpool; afternoon of writing; evening TBA.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai décidé que je ne vais pas lire les nouvelles que j’ai eu plus de café. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Decision: I won’t respond to leftover @replies from last night, but I did read them all. The river flows on, etc.

via TweetDeck

Christ the advertising industry is full of itself!

via TweetDeck

I’d better go deal with those felines…

via TweetDeck

That’s OK @pressdarling, I don’t understand either. Memory loss… what can you do?
