“When will I, will I be famous?” http://youtu.be/eS44KtUh… Blame @SnarkyPlatypus for the “inspiration”.

via TweetDeck

What’s all this talk of Richard Marx needing worming?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I. Simply. Do. Not. Know. To quote @theburgerman’s flatmate, ‘Whatever it does, it’s doing it now.’

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OK, so UNIQLOCK is speshul. And baffling. http://arseh.at/2e9 Ping @SnarkyPlatypus HT @theburgerman

Things that disappoint #62: otherwise intelligent people who think “a lot” is one word.

When the robots take over, this is where it will have begun. In Japan. And it’s yellow. http://arseh.at/2e8

“Swedish royal family hit by fresh Nazi allegations”, plus king’s “secret sex life”. http://arseh.at/2e7

via TweetDeck

I agree, @peter_tonoli, nuke-proof is just wank value. DoS-proof will be the issue. We’ll soon see how WikiLeaks fares.

“Inside the Fortified, Nuke-Proof Bunker that’s Now Hosting Wikileaks” http://arseh.at/2e6

Quiet night, cool breeze / Gentle thoughts flow as I walk / Unplanned happiness.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; gym; then, I daresay, food of some sort. Attention limited.

Cars have all the fun in Sydney.

At TEDxMidwest, Jason Fried explains why the office isn’t a good place to get work done. http://arseh.at/2dy

via TweetDeck

Well @cjjosh that just goes to show that I’m a man of many dimensions. Most of them large.

She’s got legs, and knows how to use them. She never begs, she knows how to choose them. She only lets you wonder how to feel them.

A man just walked past wearing a Sea Shepherd t-shirt. I did not stab him.

Oh @Nickhodge! @ProfessorFunk doesn’t need to know Mathematics! He’s producer of The Science Show! Oh.

Clearly unreliable ABC presenter renegs on promise to charity. Please make up for his irresponsibility by donating. http://arseh.at/2dv

@Sally_Jackson I didn’t call you ‘cos it’s an op-ed, so my POV. But I’m happy to extend the conversation, in comments, here, a follow-up.

via TweetDeck in reply to Sally_Jackson

Mobile: Enmore Rd; lunch; local errands; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

I seriously have to eat. Maybe I should have some sausages of truth. Or pho.

via TweetDeck

@Sally_Jackson I agree hateful things were said. I suspect a better (but harder) strategy is just to ignore. You always use web for Twitter?

via TweetDeck in reply to Sally_Jackson

I’ll pick up any discussion of my article later, or in Crikey’s comments. I’ve really got a shiteload to get done elsewhere now. Plus lunch.

via TweetDeck

@Sally_Jackson Hmmm… but you DID engage. By calling them trolls and dills etc. I did think that was poorly handled, actually.

via TweetDeck in reply to Sally_Jackson

@Sally_Jackson I say this because so many seem to think it IS your role, and also you did participate in a debate. Reluctantly?

via TweetDeck in reply to Sally_Jackson

@Sally_Jackson Is “my job is to report”, the neutral non-participant thing, how others see a writer’s role these days though?

via TweetDeck in reply to Sally_Jackson

@Sally_Jackson I’m guessing you became the target because you were there (on Twitter) and colleagues were not. You’re right, people vented.

via TweetDeck in reply to Sally_Jackson

Maybe not your role to “debate” , @Sally_Jackson, but debate happened. Such that it was. FWIW, I reckon some attacks were unfair.

via TweetDeck

Also at Crikey: “Posetti receives letter of demand from Chris Mitchell, and a special invitation” http://arseh.at/2dj

via TweetDeck

Met at Crikey: “Note to The Australian: Twitter is not a newspaper” http://arseh.at/2di

Inserting words into a bunch of other words, to make a very long bunch of words indeed. But an editor asked me to.

“NBN Co, ‘tell us the price’”, asks @phildobbie’s latest “Twisted Wire” podcast. http://arseh.at/2df

“A Letter to Samsung” by @ApostrophePong. They hung up on him because he used a Mac, not Windows? http://arseh.at/2de

via TweetDeck

OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE YOU ARSEHAT! CLICK ON THE “ABOUT” LINK AND IT WILL EXPLAIN EVERYTHING YOU ARE ASKING! THAT’S WHY IT WAS WRITTEN!

@izevaka The site works, yes. What I said was that Amazon isn’t hosting it any more. It is now hosted at bahnhof.se

The blog “Kim Jong-Il looking at things” is what it says on the tin. http://arseh.at/2d0

@SnarkyPlatypus La codéine n’est pas nécessaire. La sommeille est difficile à atteindre. Elle est telle une chienne insaisissable.
