Thank you for all the feedback. I have successfully pitched writing an “NBN Myths” rebuttal to a wonderful editor person.

@Pollytics Does this type of economist have a name? I mean, apart from the one starting with C?

Anyway want to join me hearing @JohnBirmingham at Hurstville at 2pm? There are spots left. http://bit.ly/cJSWfe

I’m not entirely sure I want a vision of the future created by economists. And who put them in charge anyway?

@expectproblems I shall have my people call your people about “Leviathan” next Sunday. Perhaps.

I’d like to see any NBN criticism from “economists” who don’t make fundamental factual errors about internet history, so I can judge.

Or is it just folks who typically advise investors, so they’re worldview is about short-term ROI for their investors, rather than society?

via TweetDeck

Many NBN critics making these same points style themselves “economists”. Are all economists of this view? Or is it a type of economist?

@jonoabroad I assume they’d also say that tooth-filling’s “hard to do” status would be a reason not to have dentists.

@jonoabroad There have been people saying that fibre’s “hard to repair” nature is a reason not to use fibre for broadband.

“Five myths about prostitution” is US-based, but matches my knowledge of Australia’s sex industry. http://bit.ly/bgvt1c

Just how, exactly, do you make a stage adaptation of @JohnBirmingham’s “Leviathan”? http://bit.ly/945muI

It seems @JohnBirmingham is speaking at Hurstville City Library, Sydney, at 2pm today. http://bit.ly/cJSWfe

Note to NBN-deriders saying fibre is hard to repair: Read this, your knowledge is wrong. http://bit.ly/9EauYi

@CindysView Do I want to write anything? That’s actually a good question. I don’t know yet. I worked yesterday so maybe I take today off.

@Headwellred I am not very good at writing songs.

@tobiasziegler Isn’t there already a website that’ll let you print out fake medical certificates to skip work?

@nwjerseyliz Emerging from the primordial mist is perhaps closer than you imagine to my mental state each morning. Unblurring takes time.

@benmcginnes I suspect I disappoint people most days. I may just take a half-holiday anyway. Out of spite.

Does anyone want me to write anything today?

The editing of the “Patch Monday” podcast has proceeded smoothly, and it is done. I am pleased. I now ponder what shall happen next.

@jonoabroad It is indeed Sunday. Well spotted.
