You’re insane, @kcarruthers! How does a backpack with solar panels get rid of all the heterosexuals?

via TweetDeck

@philhart YOU’RE ANOTHER ONE??!??!! THIS MADNESS MUST STOP!

via TweetDeck

Well @ryanmoore3 @peterjblack conservative Liberal SA A-G Trevor Griffin’s son came out at his dad’s Xmas function. I know witnesses.

via TweetDeck

@ryanmoore3 @peterjblack That of course raises the question of what other important sexual milestones should be live tweeted…

via TweetDeck

Christ there’s an awful lot of heterosexuals using Twitter.

via TweetDeck

@franksting At any one time, how many statisticians in Africa are masturbating?

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@dannolan Yes, I suppose that complaining that I tweet a lot is like complaining that a Wagner opera went for 3 hours. It is what it is.

via TweetDeck in reply to dannolan

@smperris Exactly. Everything is the same as everything else. It’s just so much simpler.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

Winning friends and influencing people.

via TweetDeck

RT @ret56fe: @stilgherrian too many tweets. tl;dr [Then don’t follow me, you stupid ADHD-riddled cunt. That’s OK for Saturday night, right?]

via TweetDeck

Oh right. The numbers for teachers assaulted come from that totally disinterested party, the NAHT school leaders’ union. Right.

via TweetDeck

I suppose I should actually read the @RichardFarmer blog post that I just dismissed. Or is that old-fashioned?

via TweetDeck

Maybe, @RichardFarmer, if we first paid danger money to late-night servo attendants, pizza deliverers and prostitutes you’d have a point. ;)

via TweetDeck

“Danger money deserved for teachers”, @richardlfarmer? http://arseh.at/6hc Bah! Every service-delivery job has faces disgruntled customers.

via TweetDeck

Balancing the desire for wine with the need to write an op-ed and a business document tomorrow. Balancing, I said.

via TweetDeck

According to Twitter, I am similar to @bengrubb, which is a pretty neat trick. At least all my appendages work properly.

via TweetDeck

@IainDale Looking forward to meeting you at Microsoft Politics & Technology Forum in Canberra on 1 June. http://arseh.at/ class=”hashtag” rel=”search” href=”http://twitter.com/search?q=%23poltech”>#poltechtech

@anthonybaxter True, connectivity is the key. Anyway it’s not my gig. I’m just having dinner with some participants.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonybaxter

@anthonybaxter Yes, @R_Chirgwin is just showing me the maps. They might just be on view of Boddington Next G tower most of the route.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonybaxter

@smperris @kcarruthers The real challenge for using Google tools for bushwalk navigation is battery life. Especially up here.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@anthonybaxter Actually Google should enter a team too. Most of you guys look like you could use a bit of sunlight and fresh air.

via TweetDeck

@anthonybaxter Hey I reckon Google could do live mapping of teams in next year’s for Wilderness Society. http://arseh.at/6ha

via TweetDeck

@jessicabrookes I don’t need luck, I’m just eating. A team is staying here at Bunjaree Cottages, started 0400. This is the half-way meal.

via TweetDeck in reply to jessicabrookes

WildEndurance teams must complete 100km route thru Blue Mountains in 36 hours. $192k raised for Wilderness Society. http://arseh.at/6ha

About to pop over to Bushwalker BBQ hosted by @R_Chirgwin’s family for @bigyahu and other members of the charity bushwalk.

via TweetDeck

@PennySharpemlc Katoomba tonight, eh? Well, stay warm. Just down the road here at Wentworth Falls is ‘ken freezing!

@leslienassar The primary allure of Dopplr is the little coloured graphic at the top of its WordPress widget. The only allure, actually.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

Dopplr really has no fucking clue how to handle travelling to more than one city in a single day. Fixing its constant mistakes is a burden.

via TweetDeck

Anyway that’s the “Patch Monday” podcast done, apart from the written words that go with it. I am pleased.

via TweetDeck

@purserj Hah! No, I’m not quite sounding like a 1960s, or is it 1970s, fake Australian accent done by an Englishman. I think. I hope.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

For some reason I’m sounding more nasal and Australian on today’s podcast recording. Am I losing my Adelaide private-school RP style?

via TweetDeck

Spell it out F-A-Q is the quick consensus, thank you @lelak @wolfcat @smperris @jplonie, with @MickGeorge dissenting gloriously.

via TweetDeck

Should I pronounce “FAQ” as “fack”, or spell it out, do you think?

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin That explains why the departed at dawn then… now that I piece together my memories of the early morning.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin My goodness these bushwalkers are getting a remarkably good deal! Obviously I shall give a hand if required.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin A bushwalkers BBQ? They’ve chosen lovely weather for it! I gather we’re invited to join the bedraggled walkers?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Sat plan: Enjoy the quiet rain; “Patch Monday” podcast editing; remainder TBA, although it must include the hunting of food.

via TweetDeck

There were kookaburras. Loud kookaburras. They woke me. Then I feel asleep again. Then I woke again. And here I am. Memory is just great.

via TweetDeck

@BeauGiles To confirm, yes, the editor has seen my Twitter stream and has already emailed me about my insecurities. But the story is OK.

via TweetDeck in reply to BeauGiles

@smperris Thank you. I shall reveal the publication in due course. I don’t want to jinx things.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@smperris Yes, a new masthead for me, with an editor I’ve never worked for before. It takes a while to get a feel for the wanted style.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@BeauGiles Yes, the editor knows my Twitter stream well, commissioned this story from what I said here in fact. And they’re watching today.

via TweetDeck in reply to BeauGiles

@quietdiscourse @wolfcat I have worked as an editor. Maybe that’s why I’m having such trouble.

via TweetDeck

I hate filing my first story for a new editor. Every sense of doubt in one’s own ability re-emerges. Insecurity, thy name is writer.

via TweetDeck

@charispalmer There are several reasons I don’t like working in a proper office, and that’s one of them.

via TweetDeck in reply to charispalmer

@NewtonMark Change of environment has put a few things into perspective but temporary homes are frustrating. I have a blog post coming.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@Gin_ev_ra The scrubland outside the window, bathed in recent raindrops, is rather calming actually. That’s not the same as focus though.

via TweetDeck in reply to Gin_ev_ra

Writing. And pacing. And looking out the window. More of the latter two than the first, which is the problem.

via TweetDeck

Just have some more. You’ll feel a lot better.

via TweetDeck

Indeed, @nzlemming, “a Gladwellian thud of wily reductionism and indolent thinking” as the lead-in put-down of her book is glorious.

via TweetDeck

RT @badm0f0: Paul Carr also wrote a piece on gamification a few weeks ago http://arseh.at/6gd [Yes, I already have it as grist in my mill.]

via TweetDeck

“Jane McGonigal’s Mind is Broken”, says another not-fan of gamification. http://arseh.at/62e /cc @nzlemming

via TweetDeck

Thanks heaps @nzlemming. Although http://slate.me/lbVh5e wasn’t it, that triggered a memory. It was another review of Jane McGonigal’s book.

via TweetDeck

Someone tweeted me a link to a critique of gamification a few weeks back. I don’t suppose you can remember who you are?

via TweetDeck

@jamezpolley Thanks, but I think we need more bigger words in you apology there, tho. I’m not up to thinking of them tho. Deadlines, too.

via TweetDeck in reply to jamezpolley

@jamezpolley Yes I know that. My point was that “leverage” is so often used when “use” IS the meaning.

via TweetDeck in reply to jamezpolley

RT @Warlach: Is this like how I prefer to call it Profilling rather than Stalking? [Yes.]

via TweetDeck

Dear Everyone in Business, there’s no need to say “leverage” when you mean “use”. It’s not like you’re being paid by the syllable.

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed.

via TweetDeck

@trib It’s a registerwall rather than a paywall.

via TweetDeck in reply to trib

Is the Australian government seeking greater regulation of internet “content”? Seems so. http://arseh.at/6g2

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @garystark @csimps0n He rented out his secure parking spot, and hired a sports car one weekend a month.

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @garystark @csimps0n For one friend, years, ago, it was cheaper to ditch his car, use cabs, hire cars or trucks when needed.

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @garystark @csimps0n I’m not saying it’s the same for everyone, just pointing to the assumptions people make.

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch You don’t “need your car”. You “need transport”. I could be cheaper to use car shares when needed, for example. /cc @j_hutch

via TweetDeck in reply to j_hutch

@csimps0n Yes, it has other uses, but you should still factor in a proportion of capital costs. Start from if you had no car at all.

via TweetDeck in reply to csimps0n

@csimps0n In your “car is cheaper than train” calculation, I suspect you’ve forgot to include the capital cost of the car.

via TweetDeck in reply to csimps0n

XmediaLab in Sydney on 10-11 June? Ta for that, @carolineshawyer, and yes please keep me in the loop. http://arseh.at/6fz

via TweetDeck

And the answer du jour seems to be “Yes, we feel great about X.” Which is good, as it goes, but feelings can be deluded.

via TweetDeck

The jargon du jour question from analysts is “Can you provide some colour on…?” They seem to want colour more than facts. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

Why are corporate heads always “excited” about every product of financial announcement? Surely clear-minded focus would be better?

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Write for Crikey; more writing; “Patch Monday” podcast stuff; food in Wentworth Falls?; catch up on much comms backlog many lots.

via TweetDeck

The Microsoft quarterly earnings call is in 15 minutes, such a perfect way to start the day. http://arseh.at/6fw

@sylmobile No, I won’t miss the wedding at all.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

Friday, apparently. And a busy one.

via TweetDeck

@nanopunk Yes train wrecks are always amusing.

via TweetDeck in reply to PitcherJenna

@michaelneale Yes, there does seem to be a certain topic that I’m in demand for. There’s a couple I had to turn down too.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

Oh that’s right, I’m on this week’s OzSpot podcast at GameSpot. Amusing, given I’m not a gamer as such. http://arseh.at/6fb

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: @stilgherrian Will you be staying in NetSuites suite at NetSuite SuiteWorld (eating NetSuite Sweets)? [No. Thank God.]

via TweetDeck

Shit. Only 11 days until I leave for NetSuite’s SuiteWorld in San Francisco. Not enough days to do stuff that needs to be done before then.

via TweetDeck

Heading West. On a Train.

via TweetDeck

@abctech The PSN interview you seek is at http://arseh.at/6e8 should no-one have told you yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to NickRossTech

@ninefold Yes, a narwhal. Specifically, the Dispproving Narwhal. It’s on the internet. /cc @JohnDobbin @iain_chalmers

via TweetDeck

In terms of, say, preventing you being rained upon, the temporary canopy at Newtown station is… how shall we put this? Shit.

via TweetDeck

@gavincostello I shall bear than in mind for future events, but I must admit I wasn’t particularly desperate.

via TweetDeck in reply to gavincostello

RT @dekrazee1: Got crabs? http://instagr.am/p/Dn68… [This is rather classy, don’t you think?]

via TweetDeck

Now you’re just getting silly. All of you. @quietdiscourse @garystark @NicholasMerry

via TweetDeck

RT @bernietb: Vodka? [Well that’s the most sensible suggestion I’ve seen all day!]

via TweetDeck

Trying to get exciting about something. Anything. Preferably something with a K in it.

via TweetDeck

@Stacey0 Ta for the generous offer, but of course rather than talk about your iPhone I’d prefer sticking pins in my eyes. Nothing personal.

via TweetDeck in reply to Stacey0

@iBleeter I’m not 20 minutes into the future, that’s for sure.

via TweetDeck in reply to iBleeterOhDot3

Mobile: Town Hall station; Newtown station; Enmore Rd; King St; unexplained bit; eventually back to Sydney CBD before heading West.

via TweetDeck

Anyone want to take me to lunch for business purposes, so last night’s accommodation is tax deductible? Or a quick world domination meeting?

via TweetDeck

RT @nphair: It’s the US, a class action is therefore de rigueur… [And you’ve got to be in it to win it.] /cc @darrenpauli

via TweetDeck

@glengyron Oh I didn’t bother looking at the videos before retweeting. Fact-checking is for heritage media.

via TweetDeck in reply to glengyron

@glengyron Ah if is a “be part of the cool kids crew at school” thing then that explains why I wasn’t in the loop. Ta.

via TweetDeck in reply to glengyron

The whole thing seemed to kick off when I was otherwise engaged. Can someone point me to a very brief explanation?

via TweetDeck

Alas this particular bit of ambient intimacy isn’t paying the rent. I am now behind schedule for the morning.

via TweetDeck

@feneleyandco Indeed, I’d file it under “continuing dialog about how a medium is used”. Even if it felt like it began as a bit of an attack.

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@Jen_Bennett @feneleyandco I don’t have my head around the meme but “ambient intimacy” is a bit 2007. Is there a better term now?

via TweetDeck

@feneleyandco Oh are we bickering? I just thought you were registering a complaint. Can bicker if you prefer. /cc @Skigod @Jen_Bennett

via TweetDeck

@feneleyandco Indeed, I was going to say earlier that you should perhaps not follow me, because it’s not what you may have expected.

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@feneleyandco Thanks, glad you like my work. But my Twitter feed has never been about my work, but precisely a minutiae of day thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@feneleyandco I think most people wouldn’t care about most things I tweet. It continually amazes me that I have more than 50 followers.

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@feneleyandco Well thank you for pigeonholing me. I’m not impervious to feedback. But I think we have very different views of Twitter.

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@feneleyandco Yes, I use Twitter to keep friends and colleagues in the loop about the progress of my day. Ambient intimacy.

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@feneleyandco I appreciate the feedback but I probably won’t lose sleep over it. People choose whether to follow me or not.

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@feneleyandco Maybe it’s the time you look it? The recent phase when I dropped back to mostly just routine “I did/wrote this” stuff? Dunno.

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@darrenpauli I did not see the phishing attack on Xbox, no. Is it worth my time reading up on it? Anything remarkable?

via TweetDeck in reply to darrenpauli

@phildobbie Oi! I did all my radio in Adelaide. Indeed, I worked with those two 1395FIVEaa presenters when we were all at the ABC.

via TweetDeck in reply to phildobbie

@phildobbie One does feel a bit of a goose when you discover that you’ve been talking to a dead phone for a while.

via TweetDeck in reply to phildobbie

@feneleyandco Well clearly I do, as scrolling back would show. But it’s a personal Twitter account. The balance is to my worldview.

via TweetDeck

@feneleyandco What sort of response would you like to that question?

via TweetDeck in reply to rozelleview

@darrenpauli I haven’t seen anything saying Sony has failed PCI DSS, but the lawsuit would force Sony to prove they’re compliant, I guess.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… On my radio spots this week I’ve been introduced as a “security expert”, which is flattering but not exactly true.

via TweetDeck

On hold for radio 1395FIVEaa Adelaide to talk Playstation Network hack. Audio stream at http://5aa.com.au/

via TweetDeck

The great thing about doing radio spots is the lack of pants.

via TweetDeck

Thu plan: Clear the desk backlog; errands to Enmore & Newtown; lunch; return to Wentworth Falls and freeze; a whole bunch of writing.

via TweetDeck

I find it disturbing that you and your relatives believe they have special powers, @jasonlangenauer @stufromoz

via TweetDeck

I’m on radio 1395FIVEaa Adelaide at 0905 AEST / 0835 ACST talking Playstation Network hack. Audio stream at http://5aa.com.au/

via TweetDeck

@richardtuffin Cool, looking forward to meeting you and, I daresay, quite a few others.

@JustinBarrie I’ll be in Canberra on 31/5 and 1/6, so the Asahis are on you then? ;)

[Standard catch-up thank-you for all the comments, advice and compliments I’ve received today but was too busy or rude to respond to.]

via TweetDeck

@carolduncan Nah, I can’t live up there permanently. The colder, cloudier weather is triggering SAD, and I struggle enough as it is.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

@carolduncan My sojourn in the Blue Mountains is while I’m “between houses”. I will return to Sydney in due course. I still visit weekly.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

@carolduncan Mind you, I will happily consult - that is, give my opinion - on anything if people have a budget. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

@carolduncan Heh it’s cool. I should give you a new bio line too, I’m not really doing IT consulting any more, just journalism / commentary.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

@carolduncan I’m not sure that linking to my Twitter stream is the best way to introduce me to the ABC’s audience.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

Audio of me and @trib talking PlayStation Network hack on ABC Radio @1233newcastle is at http://arseh.at/6e8

via TweetDeck

I did rearrange my plans. I will be staying in Sydney another night. I simply couldn’t face the Blue Mountains cold today. I am a wimp.

via TweetDeck

I would respond to all of your complaints, suggestions and sympathy about lousy bandwidth if, like, the internet was working.

via TweetDeck

Becoming frustrated with the lousy network performance of Telstra Next G in Haymarket.

via TweetDeck

Meanwhile I shan’t be on the television this evening after all, for various reasons. I’ll explain them in my Weekly Wrap post on Sunday.

via TweetDeck

I’ve just been interviewed for the GameSpot podcast. This is particularly amusing because I am not a gamer. I’ll post linkage when it’s up.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad I’m reliably informed that some online accounts can be opened by quoting passport numbers etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jdub Oh sorry, I wasn’t watching Twitter while talking on the radio, I was reading websites. Thanks for that info.

via TweetDeck in reply to jdub

What is this godawful shite music on ABC Radio @1233newcastle?

via TweetDeck

Pro tip: Pouring orange juice on your MacBook Pro’s trackpad at breakfast time does not improve its pointery performance at lunchtime.

via TweetDeck

Aparently @trib and I are on ABC Radio @1233newcastle talking Playstation security breach. Stream at http://arseh.at/6dy

via TweetDeck

It’s amazing how much planning you can do in a 30-min meeting, even with jokes included, eh @engochick @bhaverty?

via TweetDeck

I suppose I had better do some research. In the meeting?

via TweetDeck

I probably shouldn’t say which TV program yet ‘cos if I decide not to do it then the person they get will know they’re the second choice.

via TweetDeck

Speaking of railways and urinals, I’m on a train now. Heading to my 1200 meeting. The fact that it’s already 1215 is entirely coincidental.

via TweetDeck

No @jeamland, Wynyard is not a Playstation, it’s a urinal. I have told you this before, I am sure.

via TweetDeck

Now, do I want to stay in Sydney tonight so I can be on the television? That’s the bigger question.

via TweetDeck

What’s a “Playstation” anyway? Is it something for a model railway layout?

via TweetDeck

Rearranging my day on the fly.

via TweetDeck

Yes @MatthewBevan @carolduncan I can chat to you about the Playstation network breach on @1233newcastle at 1315 this afternoon.

via TweetDeck

Gender reassignment techniques have improved out of sight in the decades since that one was done. A real Royston Vasey job.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Missenden Rd; King St; Enmore Rd; King St; Newtown station; Town Hall station; then it gets vague. That’ll all take about 2 hours.

via TweetDeck

Actually @jeamland @Warlach I did a whole bunch of work on the weekend, so it wasn’t really a 5-day thingo for me.

via TweetDeck

Wed plan: Check out; errands to Enmore & Newtown; meeting at ZDNet?; return to Wentworth Falls; a little writing. I think that’s it.

via TweetDeck

I think you’re right, @jeamland, but there’s clearly no pleasant word for the combination of Monday and Wednesday.

via TweetDeck

Across the weekend I wrote a bunch of blog posts over at http://stilgherrian.com but I can’t be arsed linking to them all now.

via TweetDeck

I have reason to believe that it is Wednesday, which is a bit weird. Nevertheless I shall switch into work mode.

@JuliusFlywheel The frame should be, IMO, “What can be done with New Medium Y?” irrespective of what models may have gone before.

via TweetDeck in reply to JuliusFlywheel

@JuliusFlywheel That’s not my point. As long as you try to imagine Old Medium X jammed into New Medium Y you’re limiting your thinking.

You folks should get the internet, apparently you can then look shit up for yourselves.

via TweetDeck

Um @peter_tonoli @BrynAU din’t ask me anything else about Apple’s battery tests, I have quoted the one line. “Browsing 25 popular websites.”

via TweetDeck

I’m just judging battery life while checking models, @smperris @skaye. Changing platforms is an expensive and time-consuming thing.

via TweetDeck

Apple has a handy guide to organising your life around their batteries’ needs, as opposed to vice versa. http://arseh.at/6av

via TweetDeck

Fine print on Apple website says the 7 hours is for “web browsing on wireless”, with the display at 50% brightness. Cheating, I’d call that.
