You’re quite right, @frogworth, THAT is a real news story. This is why we pay taxes. http://bit.ly/cOHxg0

RT @trib: You have to wonder whether there is enough of a market for four Apple stores in Sydney. [Why do I have to wonder that?]

via TweetDeck

Oh FFS someone opening a shop is not news.

“The seven ages of Carlton Draught’s Made From Beer”, including the new slo-mo one http://bit.ly/c2Wj0A Via @mumbrella

If you start a religious war over programming languages, @jeamland, I will think less of you and mock your hobbies.

via TweetDeck

I also find it curious that tech seems to focus almost entirely on computers not, say, biotech or materials science or civil engineering.

via TweetDeck

RT @grantshow: “One of PHP’s downsides is it’s [sic] lack of syntax highlighting” [Would you care to reveal which arsehat said that?]

via TweetDeck

I wonder when the world’s media will realise that gaming news is, generally, an entertainment story not a technology story.

via TweetDeck

It’s a literary reference, @PointZeroOne @fred_bear, but perhaps it was all too subtle…

via TweetDeck

Dear Melbourne Voters, if you’re busy thinking up clever preference-flow games, I have one word for you: Senator Steve Fielding.

via TweetDeck

Standing up and moving forward: Enmore Rd for lunch, and then back again. It’s an exciting life.

via TweetDeck

Oh, Ranga-in-Chief is meant to be hyphenated? Well, I suppose it is…

via TweetDeck

@thetowncrier Why do you hate wombats?

“Download your Antony Green’s cloned head in a jar action cards and baby tokens here.” http://bit.ly/a83dCJ

Yay! It’s the @firstdogonmoon Giant Baby Election Funpack! Another election night game! http://bit.ly/dxyPKA

Microsoft: “Your potential. Our passion.” Purina pet foods: “Your pet. Our passion.” Therefore, your potential is as a pet? Or…?

via TweetDeck

I disagree that notes are required, @jplonie. I reckon one can be confident enough in one’s position to discuss it off the cuff.

via TweetDeck

Dear @JuliaGillard, there are other ways to answer questions than just repeat the same paragraphs again and again.

via TweetDeck

Speaking of hipsters, this’ll help you digest your lunch. http://bit.ly/axbOLe

via TweetDeck

Home Sweet Sandcrawler. http://bit.ly/br7nwA Once more, Unhappy Hipsters helps immensely.

@Douglasac10 Chances are I was thinking of a different ranga entirely, actually, but hello anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to Douglasac10

RT @carousella: Pretty sure you just insulted a Thai prostitute. [Pretty sure I didn’t.]

via TweetDeck

Larb nua for breakfast was probably a mistake. ลาบผิดพลาดอาหารเช้าเหนือ. [I think Google Translate failed there, BTW.]

via TweetDeck

Labor clearly sees The Greens as worth a (half-arsed) fight in Grayndler. “Only Labor can stop Tony Abbott.” http://bit.ly/9qFZAt

via TweetDeck

The Ranga in Chief is on at the National Press Club in 25 minutes. ABC1, ABC News 24 and, I assume, Sky News as well.

via TweetDeck

@virtualpete No Labor at ALL in Bradfield? Gosh. Well, no Liberal contact in Grayndler, so that matches.

via TweetDeck in reply to virtualpete

Have you all been uploading your election leaflets to ElectionLeaflets.org.au? Hmmm? http://bit.ly/9FBhZ0

Last night’s Lateline piece with Senator Stephen Conroy and Tony Smith discussing broadband http://bit.ly/9V9FJa

The area affected by the 2010 Pakistan floods as shown over Sydney, via BBC. Perspective? http://bit.ly/9TJtD1

@skaye The Chris Anderson of “The Long Tail” and “Freemium” is the editor of Wired. The TED guy is the other one. http://bit.ly/9XfZB5

Fri plan: Deliver a revised Friday plan in about an hour from now; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce I’m always suspicious of anyone or anything that insists their brand is in CAPITALS, like WIRED, when it’s not an acronym.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

I stand corrected. Wired’s “The Long Boom: A History of the Future, 1980 - 2020” was Jul 1997 http://bit.ly/13qHS4

via TweetDeck

Yes @beeso the very same Wired that declared the internet dead, and declared a century of The Long Boom right before the tech crash in 2000.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin I assume that we’ll give the poor punters a rest from “A Series of Tubes” this week? Maybe play some music instead?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

How the Liberal-National Coalation works. http://bit.ly/avPYGA [Is this sort of dodgy partisan stuff you mean?]

via TweetDeck

@mjec Well, what I linked to there was Boing Boing’s takedown of the original Wired article. But yes. DNS once ruled Ten Internetz!

via TweetDeck in reply to mjec

I know. Remind me to tell you the story about The Man With the Book next time we have a beer.

via TweetDeck

Also, that is Chris Anderson of Wired magazine, not Chris Anderson of TED. They are different kinds of annoying.

via TweetDeck

I know at some level everyone’s trying to sell something, but Chris Anderson is really only selling “Look at me! I have a book, you know!”

via TweetDeck

Yes, Anderson’s “the web is dead” idiocy, @barrysaunders, which is easily countered with facts http://bit.ly/9ZhEYn

via TweetDeck

Lady Gaga’s Poker Face read by Christopher Walken. Thank you, BBC. http://youtu.be/AJDx3H_h…

via TweetDeck

I have decided that Chris Anderson is so increasingly full of shit that you’ll soon see it lapping at the back of his teeth.

Last week’s TechLines webcast on a post-email future is now online in a cleaned-up form. http://bit.ly/9ullNb

When you choose who to vote for tomorrow, consider this. It’s Science. http://bit.ly/caW2WL

via TweetDeck

Some arsehat yesterday thought I agreed with and supported everything I link to. No. It’s just what I happen to be reading, and of interest.

@SnarkyPlatypus Ce n’est pas le lapin que je suis à la recherche. En outre, il doit être à l’estragon.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@alexkidman Indeed, there’s so many anonymous Twitter folk abusing “the other side”, like that causes people to change their vote.

via TweetDeck in reply to alexkidman

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Aujourd’hui sera très spécial. Je vais découvrir l’emplacement des lapins. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Now, how will we ensure this final day of idiot tribalism? Everything my side good, everything your side bad. Bleat bleat bleat.

As @joshgnosis points out we all got national health IDs in July. But of course this would be THEIR ID number. Obviously better.

Emerges, more or less.

via TweetDeck

@ghostwhowrites Yeah the beastie I mentioned last week was the Zoom H4n. They have the H2 also if the full-featured beast is over the top.

via TweetDeck in reply to ghostwhowrites

“Think speed. Think Toshiba”, it says. Man, that’s one hell of s brand extension!

via TweetDeck

Standing up and moving forward (again): Enmore Rd; King St; moving around and around and around; sitting down; standing up and walking back.

via TweetDeck

@JonoH It is, at its core, an act of quiet desperation.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Oh please don’t RT that Wired “The web is dead” arsehattery. See http://bit.ly/9ZhEYn

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

OK @Drag0nista I agree, a kitten and a watermelon isn’t a bad combination either. http://youtu.be/0vmoZEaN…

I’m fairly sure you’d like to watch a tortoise chasing a tomato. Alas no sound. http://youtu.be/h_N_rjkd…
