Listening to a random This American Life from the archives. Someone suggested it. Reminded how it’s often well-written but badly presented.

@Asher_Wolf Thank you. I was quite pleased with how “Patch Monday” came together this week. Explaining internet routing is a challenge.

RT @franksting: We don’t read books anymore http://twitpic.com/393phm [Still, that’s probably 2-way comms happening there.]

I’m not sure I like the idea of @ApostrophePong watching “Dexter” while grinding up the pork for dinner.

The Veronicas’ “Revenge is Sweeter” tour concert video is on ABC iView. That is all. http://arseh.at/21k

I just heard a ripple of thought from across the city: MOAR CHEESE!

@JohnBirmingham A retrospective on Ivan Milat’s fashion sense is long overdue too.

@JohnBirmingham Topics? 29 miners in NZ: major coverage. 29 miners rescued in China today, a brief note. [shrugs]

@bgosford I’ll tell you how efficient they are with a US visa application when I actually get one. The website is shit, for what it’s worth.

@garystark Well, yes, my trip is to work as “foreign media”. I’ve kinda been talking about it for two weeks.

via TweetDeck in reply to garystark

It’s OK, @thetowncrier, compared with the other raving lunatics I know you’re fairly benign. Innocuous, even.

I’m hoping the TSA works like this advert, @paulwallbank http://arseh.at/20y

@nazzer I’m pinging whichever Akamai box that www.abc.net.au resolves to. Mostly it’s 78ms but bursts blow out to 5-6 seconds.

I plan to check out the RI of the TSA people on duty, @StanDevia. Low RI = nudiescan. High RI = the full grope please.

via TweetDeck

Ah @bgosford you missed my whinge. “Foreign media” not eligible for US visa waiver program ESTA. Must have I-Visa http://arseh.at/1wq

via TweetDeck

Two weeks from almost approximately exactly right now I shall be lifting off for San Francisco. Assuming my visa is approved.

I think it’s a bit wrong that I have two Christmas parties already this week (clashing, of course), and it’s still only November.

Need proof that the Dunning–Kruger effect is real? Listen to politicians discussing broadband. http://arseh.at/21f

@wjpepperell Thanks very much. I am quite happy with how this week’s “Patch Monday” podcast came together.

On the hill at Enmore, even on Telstra Next G, at 4.30pm ping times blow out to more than 5 seconds occasionally. Wireless solves all, eh?

“The Social Network” explained as a series of penises, by @ApostrophePong http://arseh.at/21d

Mobile: Enmore Rd; lunch; King St errand, possibly; probably back home again, but possibly not.

Excellent new advert for US TSA security. [Shame Gawker blows the punchline in the lede. Idiots.] http://arseh.at/20y HT @NewtonMark

“Patch Monday” podcast filed.

via TweetDeck

In studio mode.

via TweetDeck

Well that certainly seems to have flushed out the people incapable of noticing subtlety on a Monday.

via TweetDeck

Il pleut à Enmore. C’est une bonne chose.

Twitter would be a better experience if more people complained about the minor everyday inconveniences in their privileged Western lives.

via TweetDeck

Mon plan: Complete “Patch Monday” podcast; brunch; remainder TBA, as I had very little sleep last night.

via TweetDeck

So far I have not been impressed with the way news editors have weighed the relative importance of news stories today. Situation normal.

@SnarkyPlatypus C’est ma conviction que la pseudoéphédrine ne sera pas suffisant. Multipliez par dix.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Ma tête est pleine de coton. Mon visage est plein de fruits moisis. Et pas dans le bon sens. Et vous?
