Yes, thank you for a great lunch today, @gabewong, I was too busy interrogating Verizon execs to chat. I guess that was the point. ;)

Oh seriously, people, LAX can’t be any worse than Nairobi or Dar es Salaam, and I survived them! More or less.

@clutterbells I think I shall indeed touch base with Bill, or his minions. Microsoft is paying for the trip. ;) http://bit.ly/cI9pSv

via TweetDeck in reply to clutterbells

@Nickhodge But remember, I am Microsoft’s bitch on this trip, so who knows whether I’ll even be able to walk properly by Friday.

via TweetDeck in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Yes. Stopover LAX 2h45m if Qantas on time. Friday free in Seattle, dep 1700 SEA time. You’re the second to suggest Boeing museum.

via TweetDeck in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Qantas Airbus 380-800 SYD-LAX on 24 May, then Alaska Airlines (WTF?) Boeing 737-400 to Seattle. I believe this is acceptable. [nods]

And niceness to Monash student over. My evening now descends into reading Crikey (belatedly) and government reports. This is the life, eh?

via TweetDeck

About to be interviewed by a student from Monash Uni. It must be class exercise time, I’m getting a few requests.

Ah no @mtats http://bit.ly/bgC7oI is Terms of Reference for the Senate Committee, not the KPMG-McKinsey NBN Implementation Study. Ta tho!

via TweetDeck

@BernardKeane No, there’s statements of the Scope and Methodology, but thy don’t reproduce the full Terms of Reference they were given.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane have the terms of reference for the KPMG-McKinsey report been released? I can only see the (500-page) report itself.

@BernardKeane Yes Ergas’ modelling at $215 per month was… well… Ergas modelling. ;) I see The Australian is channelling Abbott again.

@jonoabroad Indeed, one of my angles is that “the government’s job is to create public goods”. But there’s just SO many angles.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Writing coherently about the NBN report, without focussing on the lame “Will it return a profit?” narrative, is surprisingly complicated.

via TweetDeck

Back to my writing.

via TweetDeck

Laughing at an NBN commenter who can’t tell the difference between Senators Stephen Conroy and Steve Fielding. There’s some good analysis!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je vous écris des mots, avec une excellente productivité. et vous?

Having emerged some time ago and gotten administrivia out of the way, I now settle into some research and writing for an early-ish deadline.

@Nickhodge Don’t worry, I can be FAR more disturbing than the ABC…

via TweetDeck in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

RT @jonoabroad: ABC flexing it’s molluscs? [Seriously bad pun, but worth spreading. Sort of.]

via TweetDeck

Bloody hell! You can’t ever turn on the ABC these days without seeing masturbating crustaceans, eh @Nickhodge?

Sorry @maldamkar @mrsnickhodge @kcarruthers but the last thing the world needs is sex advice from old people.

via TweetDeck

@kcarruthers Oh I think it’s quite sweet that people want to be helpful but, yes, Seattle seems a reasonably tame destination.

via TweetDeck in reply to kcarruthers

Hehe. Thanks for all the advice, everyone, but it’s more than two weeks until I leave so… Ill be fine. :)
