@jdub A Shrug of Libertarians is good. But why are they getting up your nose lately?

via TweetDeck in reply to jdub

@jdub Are you being particularly plagued by Libertarians lately? Are they like locusts? Or frogs? Is there, indeed, a Curse?

@JamesJohnsonOHR Hmmm… That’s not exactly a glowing reference for Wayne Swan. I’m no exactly filled with confidence.

@nortypig As it happens, I have studied astrology. Ages ago, but to quite some depth. It was an interesting worldview to explore.

via TweetDeck in reply to nortypig

RT @theburgerman: OH: ‘It’s always a tough gig teasing economists, because their industry is so much more advanced than astrology.’ [Hah!]

I see @JohnBirmingham is on ABC Tech+Games comparing the 3 major gaming platforms. http://arseh.at/1fo

@oberonsghost Thank you. I try to treat the subjunctive mood with the respect it deserves. It is often to badly mistreated.

@SnarkyPlatypus If you were to choose wisely, the day could become even more of a write-off…

RT @dobes: It’s much more likely that like the end of peter’s career, it’s all turned into pure masturbation. [Too cruel?]

Who wants to send me to Ipswich, Queensland, on 23/11 for the RAAF F-111 retirement day?

Australia’s fertility rates declined in 2009. I guess we’re no longer having one for Peter Costello. http://arseh.at/1fj

@mjec No there’s an actual HTML form, but I see it’s a generic contact form, not an order form, so I retract everything I’ve said. Ever.

@Gin_ev_ra I’d have thought the reasons were why the judge made his decision, but we have them. http://arseh.at/1dl Reasons for penalty?

via TweetDeck in reply to Gin_ev_ra

La charcuterie always sounds slightly medical to my ears, but nevertheless I want to know what you had.

via TweetDeck

I see that ACCC v Singtel Optus is listed for “Publication of Reasons” at 0930 tomorrow, whatever that means. IANAL. http://arseh.at/18g

via TweetDeck

@mjec That’s a little cruel. Did you click through to the online order form? (Mind you, I’d have put the online form on the page itself…)

David Braue (@zyzzyvamedia) keeps knocking out solid NBN commentary. “Abbott ‘no Bill Gates’ … but is Turnbull?” http://arseh.at/1fh

Gosh! Geospatial analysis of NBN Co proposed deployment, now available for purchase. http://bit.ly/aJJVR0 Via @R_Chirgwin

Laughing at an idiot.

RT @darrenpauli Optus’ Open Network spawns legal attack http://bit.ly/aZC9qA [Does Optus get discount for multiple Federal Court bookings?]

I think the man speaking loudly at the other end of the train needs to speak even more loudly. People outside the train cannot hear.

Mobile: North Sydney station; Newtown station; home, in all likelihood.

It’s a race, certainly @natecochrane but to the bottom? I suspect to somewhere quite unpleasant for a while, anyway.

via TweetDeck

RT @stronglatte: does Soylent Green still count as crowd sourcing?

via TweetDeck

I see on the screen a room full of Amricans. Their unemployment problems will be solved by exporting all the jobs? What am I missing?

via TweetDeck

Also @natecochrane “Hey this is great we can do all this cheaper in China”, but doesn’t that dump your local community?

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @natecochrane, a real sense of “We’re doing you a favour by paying you far less than what we’d have to here.”

@jkerrison is The Future of Crowdsourcing Summit, jointly Sydney / San Francisco. http://arseh.at/1et

via TweetDeck in reply to jkerrison

Journalism is often the search for the people who know what’s going on, says @abcmarkscott, so crowdsourcing is a boon.

via TweetDeck

Lukas Biewald had some good responses about that human issue, which I’ll quote in whatever article I end up writing. Editors? Hello?

BBC article just cited: “Crowdsourcing work: Labour on demand or digital sweatshop?” http://arseh.at/1fe

kobygeddes Edelstein - ‘people as automated, self controlled, quality controlled assembly lines’. Think ‘people’ would like that description?

via Twitterrific (retweeted on 11:00 AM, Nov 3rd, 2010 via TweetDeck)

John Windsor’s model was a system for building an elite group, identifying them from the crowd. Crowdsourcing is elite search.

via TweetDeck

Nicholas Gruen is pointing out that at the heart of successful crowd projects, e.g. open source software, there are elites.

via TweetDeck

Alex Edelstein used the phrase “harnessing” people. Isn’t that what you do with horses? How are we seeing people here?

via TweetDeck

RT @leapingotter: I’m glad newton was just sitting around when the apple fell; efficiency is overrated [Precisement.]

via TweetDeck

My thought: Isn’t it inefficient to create such a volume of stuff to begin with? Aren’t you just externalising that inefficiency?

via TweetDeck

Windsor: They received 590 ideas for a Harley-Davidson campaign. How do they manage that volume?

via TweetDeck

Talk has moved to “new economics” and “a new definition of work”. Uhoh. I predict a “revolution” any moment now.

via TweetDeck

Pleased that John Windsor of Victors & Spoils actually recognises that the crowd participants have to get “value” toc10

Introducing the topic, @rossdawson reckons we’re at a tipping point with crowdsourcing.

Oddly enough, Cisco’s briefing centre has a bazillion power points for one’s laptop. That is most considerate.

Dear Sir, the time to re-specify your lunch in not after it has been wrapped and paid for.

via TweetDeck

@jplonie But if you’re searching an archive, don’t you just limit your search by date? Not sure how dates in hashtags help.

It is a strange morning indeed when I need to know the correct spelling of “Tracy Grimshaw”.

Thu plan: Write for Crikey; lunch & local errands; more writing, for various porpoises; gym & dinn@SnarkyPlatypusPlatypus, in theory.

@JamesJohnsonOHR Anything in that whole large-scale finance / economics area is way outside my knowledge area, so I have no opinion.

@jonoabroad There’s nothing wrong with a bif of nostalgia from time to time.

I have never been impressed by sycophancy.

RT @rod3000: Neutral Bay is much prettier from the air. Like +10,000 feet. [Perfect bombing altitude for tac nukes.]

via TweetDeck

@jdub Yes, that’s rather embarrassing, isn’t it? I think I will leave it there as a monument to misattention.

via TweetDeck in reply to jdub

@jdub Ah, I see you’re problem. Watching television and reading the news. [nods]
