RT @josefajardo: If history remember’s Zuckerberg as a genius, I’m moving to an island! [NP, he’ll be remembered as both a man and a cunt.]

I dislike it when Microsoft Word lectures me about style and grammer, poorly.

@techAU It’ll be interesting to see how much coverage it gets outside the core tech media. My guess: it’ll be seen as geekery and ignored.

@luke_smith Well @harleyd’s point seems to be that with the focus on the mid-term elections the bill won’t be discussed seriously.

@luke_smith I think you’ll find that Slashdot doesn’t have a vote in Congress.

Nah @jeamland @SMinney I really need to be in my own space in the mornings. Someone else’s house would be unbearable for all involved.

@duncm Oh I’m sure the Novocastrian is a perfectly reasonable hotel, but I’m not paying two nights when I want only one.

via TweetDeck in reply to duncm

It appears the only vacancy tomorrow night is the Hotel Novocastrian at $190, provided I stay two nights. Which I won’t want to. Bother.

via TweetDeck

It’s possible that I should have looked into Newcastle hotel bookings the other day.

@gabfran Look, Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Company may be old hat for you actual lawyers, but some of us might still learn something.

Correction. John Robbins, author, is a son of the relevant founder of Baskin-Robbins. http://bit.ly/94Fdul

It seems I’m far from the only one who found Coca-Cola’s legal argument fascinating. Their defence is their ads are unbelievable? Curious.

via TweetDeck

Ah! The author of that article, John Robbins, founded Baskin-Robbins but gave up a fortune to promote health. HT @einspruch

Home. Two key things remain. Rework a client’s graphic for an advert. Reconfigure another client’s Apache security settings.

@thevoiceoverguy That’s precisely why you don’t make government policy on the basis of one individual’s anecdotal experience.

@KKeneally You know, when you boast of 8700 CCTV cameras on CityRail, all I think is “Stop pissing away our money”. http://arseh.at/hk

Thank you @bernietb I was quite happy with my “Letter from Newcastle” from last year. http://bit.ly/9Pge7v Glad it still holds up.

@GreenJ This is excellent news, thank you. I probably should’ve had some words for you, too, but I suspect it won’t happen today. Sorry.

@mrgrumpystephen Your son is a wise man, whose kneecaps shall serve him long and well.

No, madam, this isn’t the train to Wollongong. That’s why every single sign you passed to reach this point say “Newcastle”. ITZ A MYSTARY!
