@duncanriley Maybe you’re thinking something different? Then again, maybe not. [coughs]

Mix and match Telstra Next G data packs http://bit.ly/bOLzos HT @Alex_Manchester

@SnarkyPlatypus We are all cane toads, at least in our most important dreams.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Alex_Manchester Yes, I’ll move to Telstra Next G. “Saving” a few dollars is a hollow gesture if the “cheaper” connection” is fucked.

via TweetDeck in reply to Alex_Manchester

Oh that tweet to @BadOptus should have just been tagged but I see there IS a @BadOptus account. Bonus. http://bit.ly/9YQMak

November Charlie Bravo.

@facibus I have yet to watch The Adventures of Ms Bishop and the Cane Toad, but I am now more eager than before.

via TweetDeck in reply to facibus

‘“Electricity prices” may rise with a carbon tax’, @jdub? Shouldn’t we tell Mr Rabbit that’s actually the whole point?

via TweetDeck

You know, @replies are just soooooo obvious! I think we need to move beyond that baby-step. At least if we haven’t already.

via TweetDeck

Ah @BadOptus! This is why I’m leaving Virgin Mobile: Sydney CBD at supposedly 3.5G: ping 484ms down 0.90Mb/s up 0.02Mb/s.

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I did not want to see a picture of Julie Bishop groping a cane toad. [Well that’s where you and I differ, Sir!]

Managing your perceptions.

Hmmm… After all that, I seem to have left my power supply at home. Well, my computer’s power supply. My personal one is OK.

via TweetDeck

@MiA_Will Well indeed, but who ate any of these people?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MiA_Will

Who was the first man, and what happened to him? That’s what I wonder…

via Twitter Web Client

The awesome @abcnews sources quotes to “a woman” and “another man”. Such glorious programmatic specificity! http://bit.ly/cPrqc6

A nation is not just an economy. Humanity is not just about money.

via TweetDeck

OK, you can stop looking now.

Keys? Where are my keys?

So, I’m about two hours behind my planned day already. Will you be the one to suffer?

via TweetDeck

The irony is not lost on me, no.

via TweetDeck

RT @kcarruthers: RT @KateKendall: You won’t change the world by pontificating about it at a conference. [Or retweeting anything, really.] ;)

via TweetDeck

Emerges, somewhat.

via TweetDeck

Gosh is that the time. [exit]

via TweetDeck

@franksting You don’t need to guess the “hastag”, I’m sure. But I’m having to extend filtering ‘cos some cunts don’t use hashtags properly.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Oh this is MUCH better…

via TweetDeck

Adding certain words and hastags to TweetDeck’s global filter.

via TweetDeck

WTF is “social innovation”? You mean innovation with people? Like all innovation? Stabby.

via TweetDeck

@nicolejensen Yes, the guard should know where his train is going. @middleclassgirl Yes, she did get on.

via TweetDeck

Woman at Stanmore station: “Do you go to Bankstown?” Train guard: “I dunno just get on.” Something is wrong with this picture.

via Twitter Web Client

@drueyjay Thankfully we’re well past Cattle Hours. It’s quite quiet, even with free trains today.

@newmediajude I was surprised how few people had seen the Broker video before. Still, I suppose conferences are about learning.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to newmediajude

Booze is run out. This could get ugly.

via Twitter Web Client

The journalists have had no difficulty finding the bar.

via Twitter Web Client

Judging by audience body language, many still look at how journalism is done thru prism of existing jobs at old media factories.

via TweetDeck

In Quentin’s defence, hardly anyone else waits for a mic either, even though they see it in every conference they attend.

via TweetDeck

You’d think Quentin Dempster, with his experience, would know to wait for the mic before talking. But no.

via TweetDeck

Peter Fray: “Let’s tell stories with every weapon we have!”

via TweetDeck

That said, Fray is making good points about doing more with stories than a bunch of pars with a photo.

via TweetDeck

Peter Fray, editor SMH, makes the usual category error. Twitter is not journalism? No. And a car is not a motor race.

via TweetDeck

RT @mpesce: <self_assigned_task> This is growing tiresome. [Erm, then stop doing it?]

via TweetDeck

@purserj I rely on my own data links, but it does appear there’s conference Wi-Fi. I never trust it though.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

Twitter is massive with journalists, they say? I see only… what? Fewer than 6 voices from the conferfence on Twitter?

via TweetDeck

@smperris Dear iPad owner, snugness is not an anti-malware strategy kthxbai.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

Around 200 people: 4 laptops, a couple iPads, a dozen smartphones. Everyone else sits with pen and paper, or just human memory.

via TweetDeck

It’s a media conference, but so very few people have media-making devices. Or do pen and paper still count?

via TweetDeck

The entire two series of Brooker’s “Newswipe” can be found on YouTude, starting at http://youtu.be/dm4GiyyV…

via TweetDeck

Well, they finally get the Charlie Brooker generic news story video up on the screen http://youtu.be/YtGSXMuW…

via TweetDeck

I’m deliberately not tweeting much from the conference. You can follow it via if you want the soundbites out of context. ;)

via TweetDeck

The panel on 24 Hour News begins with a technical failure to cross to a recorded video.

@theburgerman I might be at in the afternoon tomorrow, we’ll see, but definitely all day Wednesday.

I am now at the Walkley Media Conference and there’s all these media people arriving.

via TweetDeck

I can see Quentin Demster, but he can’t see me.

@Colvinius True, and I know the “down from last poll” was a quote, but still… it only encourages them. Maybe we need a Cane Toad Index.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius Dear Mr Colvin, Sir, are you RTing as “news” a poll “movement” which is within margin of error and therefore no movement at all?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Colvinius

Substantial RI, mechanical giraffe, cashew nuts. And it’s only Monday.

via Twitter Web Client

@duncanriley I’m quite sure I don’t have the faintest idea what you’re talking about. Quite sure. Certain, in fact.
