Home. Horizontal.

A certain restaurant owner has just accused me of being out past my bedtime. She’s right. She may also have been drinking. Ah, my village!

Great band name, @KingLeonard: Permanent Barge.

My opinion has dropped.

I assume tonight’s excuse for Sydney fireworks is the Ranga-in-Chief launching World AIDS Day at the Opera House? If so, crass.

OH: “My friend, right? She’s got a Facebook and she’s got like 2500 friends. She flashes her tits but you have to be her friend to see ‘em.”

via TweetDeck

OH, reply: “Fucking Facebook. Mate, if I haven’t seen someone in the last two weeks I don’t want to fucking know them.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “I got my first computer last year and within three months I had two email addresses and an iPhone. And now I’m on Facebook.”

@PennySharpemlc I’m glad that the mermaid is working for you. She’s pretty special.

RT @cjjosh @stilgherrian I think you’re showing a lot of patience. [See? Someone realises. Thank you.]

via TweetDeck

Wow. So this is what “workers” look like.

via TweetDeck

Mobile from Pyrmont: Bridge; Town Hall station; Newtown station; yay, back in my village.

via TweetDeck

So a quiet drink with @anthonybaxter and @coljac… what could possibly go wrong?

via TweetDeck

The iappANZ conference is ending, so I must now potter off to find a new place to connect to the internets. Stand by.

via TweetDeck

Said focus on “journalists” also gives a [false?] impression that @jonaholmesMW thinks Twitter is “journalism” not “just” “publication”.

via TweetDeck

I’d query the focus on the participants being “journalists”. It affects journalists’ work, sure, but it affects everyone else the same.

via TweetDeck

Having now read @jonaholmesMW piece on The @australian v @julieposetti http://arseh.at/2at I find little to disagree with.

via TweetDeck

@thewetmale You’d be after my “Why Twitter is useless for covering conferences” http://arseh.at/2av

via TweetDeck in reply to thewetmale

Thanks @robcorr, I was relying on my in-head lay memories of defamation, gained some time ago at the ABC and updated as needed.

via TweetDeck

RT @robcorr: The matter is “published” when you click “post” and somebody subsequently downloads the text.

via TweetDeck

RT @robcorr: Actually a tweet is “matter”, ie “any…thing by means of which something may be communicated to a person”. [Thanks, lawyer man.]

via TweetDeck

The demands for “exhaustive lists” are most amusing. What fool would hard-code a fast-changing list into a law?

via TweetDeck

Laughing at how agitated people get when they discover that a law doesn’t actually work they way they imagined it did, or they want it to.

via TweetDeck

Yes, @mpesce, you finally seem to be understanding what the law is. Medium, location etc does not matter. I am not defending this.

via TweetDeck

I agree that defamation law is “a cudgel the rich use to shut the poor up”, @mpesce, but I’m just describing what the law IS, now.

via TweetDeck

You’ve missed the point, @mpesce. Medium is irrelevant. Australian defamation law: making something known to someone else is publishing.

via TweetDeck

However @mpesce @jonaholmesMW I reckon that’s now how most Twitter users would want it. The law may be “wrong”.

via TweetDeck

Thing is, @mpesce, as Australian law currently stands Twitter IS publication. ANY comms medium is publication. Ping @jonaholmesMW

via TweetDeck

The @australian v @julieposetti thingo as seen by @jonaholmesMW http://arseh.at/2at and which I am currently reading.

via TweetDeck

@wjpepperell Indeed, there was a comment at this event about government restrictions forcing cloud usage underground.

via TweetDeck in reply to wjpepperell

But I’m not having a go at @geoffelliott, I’m simply taking an idea for a walk. What does “general knowledge” mean with media fragmentation?

via TweetDeck

The Australian’s previous pieces mentioning the Chambers Twitter case. http://bit.ly/b2Ypbo http://bit.ly/avCqwF HT @JonathonOake

via TweetDeck

@PointZeroOne I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ve destroyed the evidence and that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@geoffelliott There’s an interesting question, I think, about how widely-known something has to be before it’s “general knowledge”.

via TweetDeck

Just to clarify your piece, @geoffelliott, were you across the Chambers case before Powles’ Friday tweet? http://arseh.at/2aj

Met at @zdnetaustralia: Cloud could be ‘privacy enhancing’, says Privacy Commissioner. http://arseh.at/2ah

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Damn antlers clogging up my drawer.

via TweetDeck

@DDrazic Someone ought to tell CERTAustralia that in THIS century everyone is “the press”.

@peterjblack It’s very much in the interests of lawyers not to know about collaboration tools that’d involve their clients: hourly rates.

In theory I’m at iappANZ’s “Silver Lining: The Privacy Umbrella of Cloud Computing” conference all day today. http://arseh.at/2a0

via TweetDeck

I probably needed to be awake about an hour or two ago, but not awake for the six to eight hours before that. Grrr.
