What we need right now is more blog posts saying how wonderful the internet is. Especially “social” stuff. Whatever that is.

Well, @jdub, I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe…

via TweetDeck

Huh? There’s people saying is the first defamation-Twitter intersection? Well aren’t they ignorant arsehats!

via TweetDeck

So it’s kangaroo, but on a stick. Nice.

Dear Friends and Strangers in Victoria, please enjoy your Adventures in Democracy tomorrow. May you receive the Government you deserve.

Pondering Certain Aspects of my Evil Plan. Once that’s done, which will take half an hour, I’ll be off for lunch.

I does seem that no-one else finds this photo as hot as I do. Oh well. http://twitpic.com/3a540c

Am I the only one who finds this photo just a little bit of a turn-on? http://twitpic.com/3a540c

@wendy_hogan I had a good time last night, thank you. And I did survive the distance. Somehow.

via TweetDeck in reply to wendy_hogan

Agreed @bootload the NYT story about the hacker who went double agent for US Secret Service is a fine read. http://arseh.at/26g

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I think I just went so meta that I can see breakfast from my house.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Agreed. An article whinging that other people’s tweets are lame because they’re just whinges about yet other people. Bah.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

“Arms dealer BAE pleads guilty to hiding bribes” from @derekbarry. Note where the quote ends. http://arseh.at/26d

@lucio_ribeiro Oh ask anything you like. I can just not answer. ;) Though usually not answering just means I have too much to respond to.

via TweetDeck in reply to lucio_ribeiro

RT @expectproblems: I was already a sniggering cheap-shot artist. [Therefore you’re a journalist?]

via TweetDeck

Twitter is turning journalists into sniggering cheap-shot artists, apparently. http://arseh.at/26a

via TweetDeck

@lucio_ribeiro I write for Crikey on individual story pitches / commissions, but it averages more than once a week.

via TweetDeck in reply to lucio_ribeiro

@Steve_Lockstep I agree that user education doesn’t work any more, if it ever did. That end of day discussion was interesting.

via TweetDeck in reply to Steve_Lockstep

@AndySHastings I did write briefly about NBN POI for Crikey, just linked to, but for ASOT we chatted at some length. It IS big.

via TweetDeck in reply to AndySHastings

Me in Crikey yesterday: “NBN Co business case - truly a curiously inadequate document” http://arseh.at/269 [paywall’d, free trial]

via TweetDeck

That was rather a long conversation about NBN for “A Series of Tubes” podcast. Business case summary, POIs, politics, project management.

via TweetDeck

That story summarised: “My guess of future interest rates is different from your guess, therefore yours is wrong.” http://arseh.at/268

via TweetDeck

In refer to “NBN project finance costs in dispute: report” http://arseh.at/268

Dear Politicians, any and every difference of opinion about a budgetary matter is not a “black hole”, you lame clichéd dipshits.

via TweetDeck

Best place for words in the Senate is Hansard, @philhart. http://arseh.at/267 I’m looking for yesterday’s quotes now.

via TweetDeck

Twitter is great. You’re writing my jokes for me! Thank you. I will of course use them without crediting you ‘cos that’s how media works.

via TweetDeck

RT @mwyres: Libs declared in senate yesterday that fibre optics would be superseded “a number of times” in the next 20 years… [Whacko!]

via TweetDeck

Wondering what to say about the NBN for “A Series of Tubes” that won’t be out of date by the end of the day. Bloody politicians.

via TweetDeck

@ragnarok1971 I did, but best place for Australia Council’s Geeks in Residence program is http://arseh.at/264 as applications close soon.

via TweetDeck in reply to ragnarok1971

Fri plan: 0900 record for “A Series of Tubes”; desk catch-up morning; lunch & errands; work on “Patch Monday” podcast; TGIF, but gently.

This internet smells funny.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je pense que vous devriez considérer ce film. http://youtu.be/vFE-ctHw… Et comment allez-vous aujourd’hui?

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je considère la perte de mémoire comme un choix de vie. Je sais que d’autres personnes devraient faire de même.

My strategy for Friday relies on the assumption that 6 to 8 people were too drunk tonight to remember what just happened. Well, 20.

I’m in a cab.

I think there’s several kinds of wrong happening.
