Jimmy McGovern is a god amongst men. That is all.

“Would you like a lift?” “No, no. Very kind, but I prefer the bus. You see all of human life that way.” I cannot agree more.

Yes, AFACT intends to take the iiNet case to the High Court. http://arseh.at/5aw

RT @KristianStupid: Back in the day St Columba’s kids were the go to people for illicit substances. Good to see they keep tradition alive.

via TweetDeck

RT @GeordieGuy: At that age a vodka martini - very dry with two onions, is the only acceptable drink. [Personal experience?]

via TweetDeck

Lads on the train were discussing the merits of tequila shots with salt and lemon. They were from St Columba’s, Springwood. 15yo, maybe 14.

via TweetDeck

4-car city-bound train about to arrive, cars 2 and 3 locked out “due to vandalism”. That’s quite some work!

Thanks to batteries, I shall cut short my working excursion and return to Wentworth Falls for the shopping, then back to the cottage.

@julieposetti It’s different is someone has a genuinely unique observation, but “I found this funny thing” is hardly a Pulitzer.

via TweetDeck in reply to julieposetti

@julieposetti The mistake is trying to impose on the chattery gossip of Twitter’s 140 chars the intellectual rigour of, erm, journalism.

via TweetDeck in reply to julieposetti

@julieposetti You’re over-thinking it, IMHO. Any credit should go to the person who wrote the job ad. Everyone else is passing on gossip.

@julieposetti @crikey_news @jameshutson My thoughts will have to wait, my phone battery is running low.

via TweetDeck

@julieposetti @crikey_news Maybe attribution is a quaint affection from when people thought they owned information. “I saw that! It was ME!”

via TweetDeck in reply to julieposetti

@julieposetti @crikey_news Sorry, Julie, I wasn’t awake at 4am to see your tweet. And there was no history in Crikey, so…

via TweetDeck in reply to julieposetti

Thank you @wolfcat @adavid @kesabeth yes as I suspected “sophomore” means some year or other of education. For Americans.

via TweetDeck

I’d like to thank @crikey_news for spotting the best advert for an investigative journalist ever. It’s most clever. http://arseh.at/5al

via TweetDeck

Am I the only one who sees the word “sophomore” and continually has to look up what it means? It is specifically American?

via TweetDeck

@D_Keating I just came to Lawson for lunch and a change of workspace. I’ll still primary near Wentworth Falls. If you scroll back…

via TweetDeck in reply to D_Keating

@benrhughes I don’t think you realise how small Lawson is. There is a shop. http://arseh.at/5aj

via TweetDeck in reply to benrhughes

Oh @jonoabroad @benrhughes @BobGrrl @richardtuffin @PointZeroOne is that thing “micro USB”? HTC Desire. Doubt I can find one in Lawson.

via TweetDeck

Via @in_focus and its big photos: “The Chernobyl Disaster: 25 Years Ago” http://arseh.at/5ai

via TweetDeck

Oh. I forgot to bring my phone’s charger cable. This work session could be shorter than I’d hoped. Why can’t they just use standard USB?

via TweetDeck

Still baffled as to what the hell that was all about.

via TweetDeck

@samanthamaiden You, however, decided a neutral comment deserved snark about only just following you. FFS! You having a bad mood day?

via TweetDeck in reply to samanthamaiden

@samanthamaiden No, I wanted to talk about the uses of hashtags, which was neutral, and also saw you were a journo I wasn’t following.

via TweetDeck in reply to samanthamaiden

@samanthamaiden Oh cut the attitude, Precious. I was just responding to your dismissing comment. Or are only fans allowed to speak?

via TweetDeck in reply to samanthamaiden

@samanthamaiden From last night, hashtagging conversations might be “boring” but it means they can be filtered out by those not interested.

via TweetDeck in reply to samanthamaiden

Mobile: Dirt track then Railway Pde; Wentworth Falls station; Lawson station; Blue Mountains Hotel, Lawson; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

Watch out. You might be unfollowed by @jasonlangenauer. That’d be the end of your world, eh?

via TweetDeck

@404ed The comments about/by the AFP in that bog post are not the ACS’ manifesto. Multiple things in the one post.

Traditional media cliché bias #862: Employers make “offers”, employees and unions issue “demands”. http://arseh.at/5aa

Aust Computer Society presented a “political manifesto” this morning. http://arseh.at/5a8

RT @jonoabroad: Twenty tips in twenty minutes, starts at 8am finishes at 09:30am … [Yes, but you’ve forgotten about the Bloody Marys.]

via TweetDeck

Seminar “Social Media Law: 20 Tips in 20 Minutes” in Sydney on 12 April. At 8am. Keen? http://arseh.at/5a6

@sharpcontrast My fear is that if I went to Leura or Katoomba today I’d get distracted, rather than settle into work for the afternoon.

via TweetDeck in reply to Chiwuwu

Sadly the Hydro Majestic’s website says they re-open in January 2012, @sharpcontrast. Spectacular, though. http://arseh.at/5a2

via TweetDeck

@sharpcontrast Mt Victoria is probably a bit far for today, yes, as is exploring the nursery. This is just food and a change of workspace.

via TweetDeck in reply to Chiwuwu

Indeed, @KristianStupid, the pub in Lawson looked interesting while passing on the train, and quiet. Katoomba seemed a bit “obvious”.

via TweetDeck

Blue Mountains question: Pub lunch and quiet arvo working spot with power point. Lawson any good? Or should I hit Katoomba somewhere?

via TweetDeck

Thu plan, unordered: Continue planning next few weeks; shopping, finally; lunch somewhere different, not Wentworth Falls; quiet evening.

via TweetDeck

I got another drive-by commenter pimping their LinkedIn alternative for “entrepreneurs”. I used both barrels. http://arseh.at/5a1

@AusLawReform I see that the main page for hasn’t been updated yet, which was my confusion. http://arseh.at/59w

Actually the ABC serves you proles well. Classification review terms of reference are at abc.net.au/technology/ima… HT @kewpid

via TweetDeck

Oh. The terms of reference are in a PDF attached to the Attorney-General’s Department email media release. Your proles will have to wait.

via TweetDeck

Attorney-General’s office just said Review of National Classification Scheme terms of reference are at ALRC site. Where? http://arseh.at/59w

Fursday, eh? Frilling!

Failing to sleep. Again.
