How to follow the Ecuador coup on Twitter. Includes Twitter-aggrandising hyperbole. http://arseh.at/hc

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Inévitablement, il est le vendredi. Je ne peux pas l’empêcher. Et vous?

@Guernsey_Boy It’s probably not worth retweeting that drinks invitation seeing it was last night and it’s been done and dusted.

@newmediajude Ah no, not the Beiber. It is, apparently, Serge Negus, teen twink son of respected Australian journalist George Negus.

“Cheap meat bombshell!” And Tracey Grimshaw! Is there a connection? Find out on The Footy Show.

Who is that fetus on the television?

Mobile, again: Enmore Rd; King St; annoyance; gym; dinner. Attention limited.

via TweetDeck

This is most unfair.

@edgiles Looking forward to being on the panel with you in Newcastle this Saturday. http://arseh.at/fw

@theburgerman Actually the problem is that when I’m being a boss I’m actually a bit too easy on staff. I’m a softie. Awww…!

@theburgerman Whether the Japanese guy is still mopping the floor would depend on how naughty he’s been, surely?

OH, grandmotherly relationship advice to teenage lad: “Darl, you’d better get your story straight before you get her on the phone.”

How they make television in a restaurant http://post.ly/10m74

@RichardGiles The issue becomes one of how people make new things work outside the device- and app-defined garden.

via TweetDeck in reply to RichardGiles

@RichardGiles Decline rather than lose relevance entirely, I’d say. Unless the world becomes solely vertically integrated devices.

via TweetDeck in reply to RichardGiles

@RichardGiles Trivial example, I tell people to set their email client to mail.example.com, don’t need to change if server moves.

via TweetDeck in reply to RichardGiles

@RichardGiles By app, I mean “a use of the internet” rather than “packaged job- and device-specific software”.

via TweetDeck in reply to RichardGiles

@RichardGiles Well in any app you refer to its service by name. It means you can relocate the service without changing the app.

via TweetDeck in reply to RichardGiles

@RichardGiles Domain names pre-date the web, and have utility far beyond that surface feature. Though maybe their use as branding will fall.

via TweetDeck in reply to RichardGiles

@RichardGiles Domain names will last, even in a world of apps, ‘cos it’s still very handy to couple logical and physical locations.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Newtown station; Circular Quay station; 1215 Aria restaurant for AVG media briefing. May reply to tweets en route.

@TurnbullMalcolm BTW, I’m impressed by how you engage about policy on Twitter without lame sniping. It’s more worthy than certain others.

via TweetDeck in reply to TurnbullMalcolm

@TurnbullMalcolm I’ll respond more to that point in my next ABC Unleased piece. It reflects a key policy difference, worth exploring.

via TweetDeck in reply to TurnbullMalcolm

@TurnbullMalcolm Yep, bandwidth’s value is about apps for user. But, if a network can’t support an app at all, NO user gets that app.

via TweetDeck in reply to TurnbullMalcolm

Not just that, @bernietb. There’s also giving away “taxpayers money” as subsidies for existing telcos, in some undefined way.

via TweetDeck

RT @bernietb Isn’t it pretty much what we’ve got now? Good service in areas where it’s financially viable, fuck all for the rest of us?

via TweetDeck

@TurnbullMalcolm @purserj @NewtonMark I’d like to see some articulation of the Coalition’s vision for the future, actually.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @TurnbullMalcolm @purserj Well to Conroy everything is a club to hit people with. I agree re differences of importance.

via TweetDeck

RT @joshgnosis: Turnbull looking bored in Parliament today, on his iPad again. [He’s tweeting broadband with @purserj and others.]

via TweetDeck

@TurnbullMalcolm @purserj I’m happy with different results, but IMO it needs to be put clearer. Not just “taxpayers money” politics.

via TweetDeck

@TurnbullMalcolm @purserj But isn’t “focussed on results” still misleading if it’s not made clear that results would be very different?

via TweetDeck

@TurnbullMalcolm @purserj Part of the problem is that most political journalists have NFI about the technology issues.

via TweetDeck

@TurnbullMalcolm @purserj Technical questions are avoided by both sides. Hand-waving “super-fast”? Bah! That’s treating us as dummies.

@wolfcat How does one form the plural of a noun in English? Hmmm?

Re-plug: I’m on the war reporting panel at National Youth Writers Festival in Newcastle at 2.30pm tomorrow. http://arseh.at/fw

@GreenJ I am sorry, I used the word “emetic” incorrectly. I should have said “Laxative”, shouldn’t I?

@adavid @SnarkyPlatypus “Quand je vois les yeux de Julie Bishop, je ressens une petite mort moi-même” results. MOAR SATISFACTIONS!

via TweetDeck

@adavid @SnarkyPlatypus I usually force Google Translate’s hand by entering “the eyes of Julie Bishop” rather than “Julie Bishop’s eyes”.

via TweetDeck

No dateline on the story is inexcusable, I agree @dsturnbull, but the coup in Ecuador is current news it seems. http://arseh.at/hf

@SnarkyPlatypus Quand je vois les yeux de Julie Bishop’s, je ressens la petite mort moi-même. http://arseh.at/he

Fri plan: Slow start; plod thru everything in the inbox, hoping there’s no surprises, with break for lunch; evening reading for tomorrow.
