Fairfax reckons allegations of giving ecstasy to a circus wallaby in an Irish pub is an “environment” story. Somehow. http://arseh.at/z4

Dumb people shouldn’t be allowed to buy things.

I dont really know anything about the psychology of shareholders, of course, but nothing has actually happened yet.

via TweetDeck

Or did the price drop because TLS shareholders want certainty but @TurnbullMalcolm’s statements create uncertainty?

via TweetDeck

Telstra shareholders must be dumb. Share price drops TODAY ‘cos legislation scheduled for ages hit Parliament? Had they forgotten?

via TweetDeck

The ABC’s new technology and games site is live, it seems. http://arseh.at/z3 Bon chance, @maninultimo!

@firstdogonmoon Maybe Peter Garrett could sort out the David Jones thing, what with his patented sensitivity training dances and so on.

via TweetDeck in reply to firstdogonmoon

Yes @firstdogonmoon let’s blame Peter Garrett. In fact, let’s put him on a cart, wheel him from town to town, and throw vegetables at him.

via TweetDeck

Well, it seems there’s widespread support for the answer “Yes” there. Who can we blame, I wonder?

Has everyone had enough Wednesday yet?

via TweetDeck

Oh no @inanaj these people have suffered enough without inflicting Jamie Oliver upon them. Then again, they do have guns in America…

I agree @sylmobile @jasonlangenauer the “roast beef croissant” is particularly lovely. I shall move to Virginia. And become a student.

The “delightful” school lunches of Harrisonburg, Virginia. Yum! http://arseh.at/yu

Mobile: Enmore Rd; potentially an errand to King St; lunch somewhere along the way; back to my desk for the afternoon wrap-up.

What do you mean, it’s World Statistics Day and no-one told me? What proportion of the population would be in the same situation?

@DemonicVel I don’t think physical books will “go away” full stop.

Tethered Cow Ahead has a go at another potential Apple-tech beat-up story. http://arseh.at/10d

via TweetDeck

As it happens, a Fairfax story triggered these thoughts http://arseh.at/10c but it’s hardly exclusively a Fairfax habit.

via TweetDeck

The clear consensus is that the location of a story is mentioned up the front, out of respect for audience. Unless you’re a “clickwhore”.

via TweetDeck

@cate3221 Well indeed. :) Precisely why I feel cheated by this story that waited until par 5 before hinting that it might not be Australian.

via TweetDeck in reply to Obfus_Cate

@cate3221 Why should online reportage mean that location of the story isn’t meantioned early? What’s the rationale?

via TweetDeck in reply to Obfus_Cate

Personally, I reckon that “Where?” is still one of the “w” things you answer in the very first par, Dear Journos, but call me old fashioned.

via TweetDeck

If you’re an Australian news outlet, how many pars should you get into a story before explaining that it’s all in another country?

via TweetDeck

I must say, ASIO’s website is reasonably schmick these days. http://arseh.at/106

OH: “It was pretty early in the night. I was pretty sober. But I still got kicked out.”

@ragnarok1971 “Robot”? “Robot”? One thing at a time, please, young man!

Mobile: Enmore Rd; potentially an errand to King St; lunch somewhere, probably; remainder TBA. I am… indecisive.

I’m craving cheese again.

I think this is appropriate for the arseh.at two-letter rollover, don’t you @jasonlangenauer? http://arseh.at/zz

In @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast, “Broadband tales from the bush”: Is it so bad? http://arseh.at/zv

New articles have just appeared at New Matilda. Indeed, it seems to be returning. http://newmatilda.com/

If your curtains aren’t big enough, you need robot curtains. http://youtu.be/rKhbUjVy… Or possibly a life.

There’s now a website for the Commonwealth Law Ministers Meeting in Sydney, July 2011. Tr├Ęs excitement. http://arseh.at/zp

@ourmancanberra I think certain traditions must be preserved, don’t you?

If you missed Senator Conroy talking NBN on Lateline last night, you can re-live the thrills at http://arseh.at/zi

Thu plan: Gently plod thru the various tasks at my desk; break for lunch and errands; build a giant robot; evening TBA.

Nice coincidence that the arseh.at URL has “zd” in it. It must be a Sign!

Ah, my feature is up at @zdnetaustralia: “Cloud security? Better get a lawyer, Son!” http://arseh.at/zd

Slept for 11 hours, and still feeling flat. I believe I am ill. Rearranging the day to cope with having slept in and missed appointments.

Cork is the answer.

Oh FFS don’t tell me there’s another arsehat arbitrary “Look how I can write the time! Let’s celebrate!” event tonight? How stupid ARE you?

RT @JohnBirmingham: And Pokemon. There should be more Pokemon coverage by @sarahclarkeabc [Well that goes without saying.]

via TweetDeck

True @JohnBirmingham the Irish are animals. So just having animals in it makes it an environment story? Like “Bondi Vet”? I can handle that.
