@cyclingscotty I differentiate here between “reality” as perceived by teachers and “reality” of media narrative. I see only the latter.

via TweetDeck in reply to cyclingscotty

@cyclingscotty If there’s already plenty of KPIs for teachers, that’s not cutting thru in the media narrative. The ad I quoted didn’t help.

@BernardKeane Sorry, you’re boasting about sharing a cab with a rugby player? You think you’re Alan Jones or something?

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@cyclingscotty Then teachers need to come up with a better metric than ‘cos at the moment it looks like they’re avoiding scrutiny.

I think I’ll go home.

@djackmanson This radio ad was “authorised” by the Teachers’ Union”. It was seriously lame. They’re not going to win this battle.

via TweetDeck in reply to djackmanson

If I did broadcast radio, I’d be embarrassed to be sponsored by “Australian bananas”. Naming rights FTL.

Radio ad: “If the government won’t protect our children from league tables, then teachers have to.” Yes, PKIs for education are Teh Evilz.

@SoniaLastrega For someone of Justice Kirby’s standing, $15,000 for a speaking fee is well within the usual range.

@Eva2009Sophie Oh no it’s not a migrane, just a straight-up headache, and I know the probable causes so no need for an A&E visit. Yet. Ta.

via TweetDeck in reply to Eva2009Sophie

@Eva2009Sophie The headaches aren’t common, no. but for some reason this one is particularly nasty.

This headache is… 1. Severe. 2. Unnecessary. 3. Debilitating. 4. Unresponsive to medication. 5. Stabbymaking.

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @sylmobile, “zygote” is an excellent word. And not just because it contains “goat”.

via TweetDeck

@jeffsonstein Unlike @trib I wouldn’t have had a go at ALL Americans. Just that singing zygote you imported from Canada.

Oh goodness, that certainly piqued people’s interest and concern! ;) It’s been 24 hours so far, though I’ve had a couple cups of tea.

Having used the last of the household coffee yesterday, I’ve decided to give up coffee completely, effective immediately.

The Bill Gates rootability discussion was IN my dream, but I didn’t participate @samotage @barrysaunders @annetreasure

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: If people want 9pm Edict so much, they can pay for you to do it. [Yes, I think I shall make that point tonight.]

In my dream, they were discussing whether the young Bill Gates was rootable. Whaddyareckon? http://bit.ly/bTKHyN

Since when has a half-arsed car bomb been a “weapon of mass destruction”? More scope creep, eh? http://bit.ly/c1TwNC

via TweetDeck

If I have the energy later today, I shall do an episode of “The 9pm Edict” tonight. Otherwise people will sulk.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je crois que je vais réduire mon anxiété aujourd’hui en devenant un crinoïde. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@notrez That’s the problem. Producing all the media myself is nonfinite too. :( The Edict doesn’t pay the bills.

via TweetDeck in reply to notrez

We are only up to “The 9pm Edict” episode 11, @notrez. There is nothing wrong with your feed. Well, not technically.
