RT @ViciousPotato I’ll just sit here, listening to the teddy bear’s picnic song on loop… [First sensible idea I’ve seen all day.]

They choose to read mX. All of them. No-one is forcing them.

@SnarkyPlatypus Interesting, but the extensive and expensive wine bar must wait until another time.

To the disappointment of cheese lovers and fans of accidental drownings everywhere, I have decided to go home, thus avoiding stabbiness.

via TweetDeck

I am slowly getting closer to the Harbour…

Architectural marvels, Sydney CBD http://post.ly/180cb

OH, man on phone, leaving voicemail: “I’ve decided to get pissed today, so why don’t you give me a call.”

via TweetDeck

RT @alexkidman: Invent a new type of cheese, using only the implements you can beg, borrow or steal. [Now THAT’s a challenge! Plus, cheese.]

via TweetDeck

The appeal of going into the new Westfield thing is minimal, @teknetia @Jay_GW_Ng. Yet another cluster of the same brand-name shops? Yawn.

via TweetDeck

I know it’s IT industry jargon, but whenever I see “vendor” I think of old blokes selling stale vegetables from ill-maintained wooden carts.

via TweetDeck

My 1830 meeting has been postponed. I am in the Sydney CBD. Do I go home? Run amok here? Throw myself into the Harbour? Other suggestions?

via TweetDeck

@JonoH Do you know when the OTA Android 2.2 upgrade for Telstra’s HTC Desire will happen, for those of us not on Windows? ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

I’m talking NBN [pre-recorded] with @synmedia at 4.30pm AEDT, streamed from http://syn.org.au/

Ben Pobjie’s Guide To Twitter. Because there’s a worldwide shortage of Guides to Twitter. http://bit.ly/96VKPA

Transition complete.

via TweetDeck

The Transition is proceeding quite painlessly.

via TweetDeck

RT @meadea The Woman’s Weekly has Christmas on its cover… [Ta, I’d have missed that. Christmas is getting very silly.]

via TweetDeck

Dear QVB, putting up your Christmas tree in October smacks of desperation.

via TweetDeck

@inanaj Feel free to email me something, I’ll be able to look after my errands. Market growth stories tend to bore me though.

via TweetDeck in reply to inanaj

RT @ChasLicc Scary & overprotective parents just got a lot more scary & overprotective http://bit.ly/acniBi [This truly disgusts me.]

via TweetDeck

@franksting My Virgin Mobile contract is expiring so I’m porting my number to Telstra Next G immediately.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@dfg77 The “why” might be interesting, maybe, but the research couldn’t be knocked off on an afternoon. Too many people to chase.

via TweetDeck in reply to dfg77

@dfg77 Vendors and their staff not using their own products sounds more like a written list than a conversation, but yes.

via TweetDeck in reply to dfg77

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Newtown station; Town Hall station; 1200 Telstra T[life] store, 400 George St; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

Pondering what I should do for the “Patch Monday” podcast this week. You are permitted to make suggestions.

@Tamarajawad Embrace chaos. And demand free airline tickets. ;)

Stephen Bartholomeusz reckons NBN Co got Telstra’s network at a bargain price, with provisos. http://arseh.at/1a7

My “Weekly Wrap 21” was posted last night, because I’m organised. http://arseh.at/19l

New blog post: “Return of the Hallucinating Goldfish: Help!” http://arseh.at/1a6 Ping @stubbornmule

via TweetDeck

@stubbornmule I don’t suppose you’ve ever updated your graph of Australia’s historical debt-to-GDP ratio? http://arseh.at/1a4

via TweetDeck

Yeah well bye.

Polite society is easy to find, @lelak @Nickhodge, it’s the thing where you don’t have a bum in your face.

via TweetDeck

While “journalists” were busy reporting “politics”, here’s what Parliament actually did. http://arseh.at/19t HT @timdunlop

via TweetDeck

Look, I don’t care what species you are, I don’t wish to examine your vagina that closely right now.

DFAT holding info sessions on ACTA in CBR, SYD, MEL. http://arseh.at/19q HT various.

via TweetDeck

I often ask myself that question.

Dear Media, “Holiday Cliché Lockdown is now in force”, says @johnemcintyre. And rightly so. http://arseh.at/19n

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Weekly Wrap 21” http://arseh.at/19l A bit early, maybe, but now I get to sleep in tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

@kristinmoore2 @SnarkyPlatypus One glass of wine per hour seems a bit… torpid.

via TweetDeck

@MishoBaranovic I suspect there’s a certain amount of tribalism involved here. I was just stirring a mate.

via TweetDeck in reply to MishoBaranovic

@SnarkyPlatypus Can you further explain the work-to-red-wine equation? Do you have a newsletter?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@MishoBaranovic I’d have thought it was rather obvious I was talking about technical rather than creative aspects of the photographs.

via TweetDeck in reply to MishoBaranovic

@helendickenson Surely you’re not suggesting that unless Murdoch gives you a few pages of tabloid tripe you can’t think of anything to do?

via TweetDeck in reply to helendickenson

Maybe I should update the Hallucinating Goldfish post with more recent examples. Seems dated now. http://arseh.at/19h

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I think I should mention “debt”, “great big tax” and “Hansonism” [whatever the fuck that’s mean to mean]. And get a cloth.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

So @franksting this Instagram thing is some hipster toy that hides the fact that the camera in your phone takes really shitty pictures?

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @natecochrane, what debt is used for makes a BIG difference. But now we stray a LONG way from my knowledge. ;)

via TweetDeck

Oh, you like the Hallucinating Goldfish thing? Here’s my original blog post ‘pon same. http://arseh.at/19h

via TweetDeck

Uhoh! Combinatorial explosion of people to @reply to. And I wasn’t going to get into politics this afternoon. Oopsie!

via TweetDeck

My preferred term is that we’re governed by Hallucinating Goldfish. No long-term memory, and a world of imagined horrors.

via TweetDeck

I do remember, @aqualung. But politicians and their co-dependent media live in what @BernardKeane calls the Perpetual Present.

via TweetDeck

RT @aqualung: Do you remember a few years back Costello was very proud to get DOWN to 6% debt:GDP … now Libs complain of 6% after stimulus

via TweetDeck

In that context, to use the customary example, 6% of GDP debt is like a household with $100k income taking out a $6k loan. Dearie me.

via TweetDeck

Debt is not automatically bad, @skaye. People borrow money to buy a home, for example, and it’s considered quite normal.

via TweetDeck

Australia worries about “debt” at 6% of GDP, when US is 60%. Or is it really 14x that? US bankrupt? http://arseh.at/19e

@spandaslui “Jealous”? Home doesn’t mean I’ve stopped work. Far from it.
