I guess one of my key concerns is that the narrative will end up being “Twitter did this” as opposed to “Twitter enabled this”.

via TweetDeck

@lukephillips I’m not really a fan of anyone but, yes, I am concerned that journalistic credit will be taken where no journalism happened.

via TweetDeck in reply to lukeofpreston

@aseetp I agree we can say CNN 1991 [that right?] = Twitter 2011, but only in a very loose sense. My concern is looseness being forgotten.

via TweetDeck in reply to aseetp

Pausing so my response captures the flavour of what I want to say, and also to eat the fried rice I just made.

via TweetDeck

@aseetp It’s only “selective” “against” Twitter inasmuch that Twitter was the named thing being touted as the new future on this occasion.

via TweetDeck in reply to aseetp

@aseetp That’s easy. There was a headline earlier that talked about today being “Twitter’s CNN moment” or similar. This error is repeated.

via TweetDeck in reply to aseetp

RT @1159: Maybe Ch9 et al really aren’t a source most of the time these days? [Well perhaps and that’s another point again.]

via TweetDeck

@1159 @aseetp I grant you my point is subtle, but I happen to think it’s really important.

via TweetDeck

@aseetp No you’re still not getting my point. “TV” isn’t the news source but, say, Nine News or ABC News or CNN.

via TweetDeck

@1159 No you’re still not getting my point. “TV” isn’t the news source but, say, Nine News or ABC News or CNN.

I really do not want those people at 795 Folsom St taking the credit for this.

via TweetDeck

I can’t stress this enough. The people at 795 Folsom St, San Francisco are not the source. Your network is the source.

via TweetDeck

What is the news source is not “Twitter”, @aseetp, but that person’s network of “friends” that they connect to via Twitter. Key difference.

via TweetDeck

The key point, I guess, @jonoabroad, is there’s no-one at Twitter HQ generating the content. They are but the passive conduits.

via TweetDeck

The entities you connect with via Twitter may be news sources, @jonoabroad, like entities you connect with via TV. Twitter’s not the source.

via TweetDeck

@aseetp Well I’m glad you have such awesome insight into how long I’ve thought about these issues. You must be clever beyond all belief.

via TweetDeck in reply to aseetp

FFS WILL YOU STUPID CUNTS STOP DESCRIBING TWITTER AS A NEWS SOURCE! THIS IS A CATEGORY ERROR YOU MORONIC ARSEHAT FUCKWITS!

via TweetDeck

More disgruntled.

via TweetDeck

It’s precisely 7 days until I leave for NetSuite’s SuiteWorld in San Francisco, wishing it wasn’t now. http://arseh.at/579

via TweetDeck

The generator is running and nothing has exploded, mostly.

via TweetDeck

“Twitter” can’t be right or wrong, @peterjblack, that’s the medium not the messenger. Grrr! Do I have to spank you?

via TweetDeck

I’m having enough trouble staying away as it is without you lot putting Kevin Rudd on the TV,

via TweetDeck

Joe O’Brien is finding so many different ways to say that he doesn’t actually know what’s happening. It’s an art.

via TweetDeck

Salesforce.com’s free Cloudforce 2011 Sydney is next Thu 12 May. They do splash out. http://arseh.at/6ix

Whew! That’s all the deadline-related stuff done. Now for brunch, then the rest of the day’s work.

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “APF urges criminal penalties for smartphone privacy breaches” http://arseh.at/6iu

via TweetDeck

@rbbayliss Hmmm… That would make more sense in terms of what the article said. I don’t trust mainstream news outlets with screenshots tho.

via TweetDeck in reply to rbbayliss

About to talk PlayStation Network hack on Perth radio @RTRFM 92.1, live stream at http://arseh.at/6io

via TweetDeck

RT @rbbayliss: I’d also expect that there are a lot of people trying to sell junk data for big bucks. [Absolutely. Buyers want samples tho.]

via TweetDeck

Reports that the data hacked out of Sony PlayStation Network is being offered for $100k. http://arseh.at/6it

via TweetDeck

RT @nickobec: [Sony] just had an information security officer giving him the title chief info… makes it look like they are doing something

via TweetDeck

Ah right. Sony has “created a new position: Chief Information Security Officer”, meaning they didn’t have one before. http://arseh.at/6is

via TweetDeck

@iain_chalmers I’m just catching up on the latest Sony stuff, ta. I also hear they didn’t have some certain key infosec qualification?

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

@nambor Hah! If the “Twitter is full of heteros” problem could be fixed with a twist, I’d be buying a new spanner tomorrow.

@trentg85 Nah invoicing is quick. I have everything set up and templated in @saasu. Chasing contractor timesheets is the annoying part.

via TweetDeck in reply to trentg85

I’m talking PlayStation Network hack on Perth radio RTRfm 92.1 at 0915 AWST / 1115 AEST, http://arseh.at/6io

via TweetDeck

Mon plan, unordered: Finish two articles; tidy Banksia Cottage; invoicing; plan the month; talk on the radio; start client website mods.

via TweetDeck

@rod3000 I can be gloriously productive here, yes. The nearest human is 300m+ away today. It’s very peaceful.

via TweetDeck in reply to rod3000

@mpesce No it doesn’t. And besides, you drink the Kool-Aid. I saw that on television.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

It is indeed a lovely view, @rod3000, and here’s the view from the deck upstairs, off the bedroom. http://arseh.at/5nz

via TweetDeck

No it’s not that “it needs” more geotags, @BeauGiles, it’s that “you want” them. Slight difference. Not everything has to turn into data.

via TweetDeck

So all this action is happening at Bunjaree Cottages. http://arseh.at/4q5 Paying customers get working gas bottles. In theory.

via TweetDeck

A brief investigation reveals that, yes, this is the poo of a carnivore.

via TweetDeck

I believe that would be antechinus poo on the kitchen bench. @R_Chirgwin will be well pleased.

via TweetDeck

So, there’s another cottage down here… http://post.ly/1ycii

via Posterous

Right. Either way there’s no way there’s a 32kg weight difference between those two bottles. Plan B: Change cottages.

via TweetDeck

@iain_chalmers No, not a left-hand thread, it’s got a big green tap handle thing labelled to turn “open or “closed”.

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

Oh FFS who screwed down this gas bottle valve? Were they expecting Armageddon? [grunt, strain]

via TweetDeck

The Beautiful Enabling Technology of the Transfer Valve http://post.ly/1ycSU

via Posterous

Good heavens. My Posterous stream usually gets 2500 to 4000 views of each image. I wasn’t expecting that!

via TweetDeck

There is not an electric kettle, or shouldn’t be. But the worst-case scenario is moving to another cottage that still has gas, 200m away,

via TweetDeck

@andrewdotnich I don’t have a gas bottle in bed. That’s pretty much the problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

Stretches. Now before I get out of this nice warm bed I’m going to ascertain the gas bottle situation.

via TweetDeck

@franksting I’m rather not in the mood to go farting about in the dark after midnight in sub-10C conditions. It’ll wait until the morning.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

RT @franksting: It involves gripping, twisting and turning. [Like so much in life, really. Also, add “finding a full gas bottle”.]

via TweetDeck

Oh. The gas bottle is empty. No heating. No stove. No hot water. Morning task: teach self how to change a gas bottle. Without an explosion.
