I agree @NineSortJam video as ambient tech is a biggie. NBN Co’s Mike Quigley did a shithouse job of selling that. http://arseh.at/13s

@NineSortJam I’ll add your points to the blog comments a bit later. So much does seem to be lots of smaller things not One Big Sexy Idea.

@hunternield How does sensor data require fibre for everyone, as opposed to merely decent bandwidth for the sensor locations? That’s the Q.

via TweetDeck in reply to hunternield

@GeordieGuy Well the bandwidth issue is precisely the question. I’m having the detailed conversation over on the blog, not here.

And me from this morning: “Homophobic beat-up by Sun-Herald’s Heath Aston” http://arseh.at/13d

via TweetDeck

Here’s some of the suggestions for NBN applications that have come in so far. http://arseh.at/13q Any more?

via TweetDeck

Apparently the French Revolution was a failure. http://arseh.at/13m

@jonoabroad Would you be up for a 3-min phone / Skype conversation at some point tonight / early tomorrow to run through your suggestions?

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@Gin_ev_ra Out of curiosity, do you have a personal connection with any of those medical applications? Looking for people for the podcast.

via TweetDeck in reply to Gin_ev_ra

Many good suggestions are coming in, thank you. I’ll publish the first batch as a comment to the blog post in an hour or so.

via TweetDeck

Should anyone be enthusiastic enough to be recorded for the podcast, do feel free to ping me in the blog comments. http://arseh.at/13h

via TweetDeck

You’re right @D_Keating, for some naysayers no number of potential or real applications will convince them. But it’ll be harder.

via TweetDeck

The answer doesn’t have to fit in 140 characters, @GumbyRoffo. That’s why there’s a blog post. ;) http://arseh.at/13h

via TweetDeck

I reckon there’s real, concrete applications sitting there right now, or in just moments, crying out for the bandwidth.

via TweetDeck

Sadly @bondles9 the answer “we don’t know yet” doesn’t persuade skeptical voters to cough up a few billion dollars, and rightly so.

via TweetDeck

Yes, for the “Patch Monday” podcast I’d like to know what YOU could use the NBN for.

New blog post: “Selling the NBN: couldn’t you do better?” What are your real-world NBN applications? http://arseh.at/13h

@vexnews Even if you count fave-ing a tweet as linking to something, a video of a kiss is not porn. Nowhere near. http://arseh.at/13d

via TweetDeck in reply to vexnews

@vexnews I did read the Fairfax story closely. Your tweet ‘saved gay teen porn as his twitter “favourite”’ is NOT an accurate summary.

via TweetDeck in reply to vexnews

RT @ViciousPotato: I think you should stick to your initial plan of reading lolcats. [I’m starting to think the same.]

via TweetDeck

My plan to do “Patch Monday” as a summary of NBN news hits a snag: most “news” was just politicking. And now I’m stuck. Uninspired.

via TweetDeck

I do the same @JamesJohnsonOHR, Twitter “favourites” is just a handy way to tag things for later. No “endorsement” implied.

via TweetDeck

@Kimski_Impro Or, in a sense, you’re right. The “Herald Sun” isn’t Fairfax. But the story was in the “Sun-Herald”, not the “Herald Sun”.

via TweetDeck in reply to Kimski_Impro

@Kimski_Impro Nah, you’re wrong. “Sun-Herald” is Sydney’s Sunday paper from Fairfax. Different from Murdoch’s “Herald Sun” in Melbourne.

via TweetDeck in reply to Kimski_Impro

Currently I’m reviewing the week’s NBN coverage, including @TurnbullMalcolm on “Meet the Press” this morning. http://arseh.at/13g

via TweetDeck

@JamesJohnsonOHR “Vive les poissons rouges sauvages” is a reference to my feral goldfish metaphor. http://arseh.at/13f

via TweetDeck in reply to GojuMedia

No @jeamland I don’t expect objectivity from @vexnews. Or anyone. Objectivity is a myth. But that’s different from just making up stuff.

via TweetDeck

Thanks for the nice words about my post on Sun-Herald’s beat-up re @barryofarrell’s Twitter faves. http://arseh.at/13d

via TweetDeck

@helendickenson If @TurnbullMalcolm bid $70k in a charity auction, excellent, but that doesn’t really fit Patch Monday’s technology brief.

via TweetDeck in reply to helendickenson

Happy birthday @TurnbullMalcolm that invitation is still always open to chat broadband for the “Patch Monday” podcast. :)

via TweetDeck

And so on. For two hours.

“I can haz insurence? I soberz I swearz.”

via TweetDeck

“I eat you now k?”

via TweetDeck

Pondering what to do for the “Patch Monday” podcast. Was thinking about a summary of the week’s NBN stuff but maybe I’ll just read lolcats.

via TweetDeck

Amused that even professional journalists and commentators failed to read Aston’s piece carefully enough to see through his insinuations.

via TweetDeck

@Alex_Carlton Y’know @barryofarrell didn’t “favourite pics of young boys”. You fell for Aston’s insinuations. http://arseh.at/13d

via TweetDeck

Typically, the twitterstream asserts that @barryofarrell ‘saved gay teen porn as his twitter “favourite”’. Which is simply false, @vexnews.

via TweetDeck

Oops. That should be “Heath Aston”, not “Ashton”. Thanks @oz_f I’ve fixed the article but left the URL intact. http://arseh.at/13d

Well, well, well…

Quick recording done for “A Series of Tubes”. Back to the “Patch Monday” editing. Grunt. Grunt. Grunt.

via TweetDeck

@niltiac I didn’t say it was invalid. I just said I wouldn’t use it that way. It’s purely a personal preference in word choice.

via TweetDeck in reply to niltiac

Mon plan: Produce “Patch Monday” podcast; break at 0845 to record for “A Series of Tubes” podcast; lunch; remainder TBA, probably exhausted.

via TweetDeck

@Snipergirl A hammer is so messy, I find. I think a simple crossbow bolt to the head should suffice. Quieter, too.

via TweetDeck in reply to Snipergirl

Well @Snipergirl clearly we need to kill them pre-emptively, to prevent that sort of sneaky infection.

via TweetDeck

RT @Snipergirl: What about ones carried by animals or that are latent for years before making symptoms but are still infectious?

via TweetDeck

RT @HLMenckenBot: The ideal way to get rid of any infectious disease would be to shoot instantly every person who comes down with it.

via TweetDeck

@niltiac I don’t think I’d use the word “love” in that kind of context. @Tarale

via TweetDeck

I think “loving” the Oxford comma is going a bit far, @Tarale. It’s just a tool. Like loving a 6mm Phillips-head countersunk wood screw.

via TweetDeck

More reasons why I’m changing my personal stylebook-in-my-head to use the serial comma / Oxford comma. http://arseh.at/13z

via TweetDeck

Given that I’m awake earlier than planned, I might as well re-pimp the stuff I wrote yesterday…

via TweetDeck

@theburgerman Yes. “Good morning.” Or something. It can only get better from here, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to theburgerman

Oh. No. This wasn’t the plan at all.

via TweetDeck

@NineSortJam One button to “retrieve voicemail”, and it automatically records the file at the right settings.

via TweetDeck in reply to m_jns

@NineSortJam I already have a quick workflow for grabbing stuff off Skype, presets in place etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to m_jns

Ecamm’s Skype Call Recorder for Mac is USD 19.95, folks. Audio and video calls recorded. http://arseh.at/13t

via TweetDeck

An audio comment for “Patch Monday”, @NineSortJam? Just Skype to “stilgherrian” or phone 02 8011 3733 and leave voicemail.

via TweetDeck

Apologies for not responding personally to everyone’s suggestions as they come in. They shall be compiled. I’ll be in bed soon anyway.

via TweetDeck

@robbieg8s Lots of good suggestions there, I’ll add them to the list too, thank you.
