OK. 0650. Dangerously close to writing words for this Crikey piece. I have 2 hours to do that and get breakfast before the keynote starts.

@joshgnosis Well, they have a point about not being able to abide by an embargo. Not everyone is as honest as us. ;)

@anthonybaxter Hey Freedom Boy, this is the internet. Remember? Businesses don’t have to make profits, just have users. [cough] Twitter.

Here’s @joshgnosis on being in the budget lock-up. I reckon his final point is pertinent. http://arseh.at/6t3

No, @IanWoolf, the question is why we don’t give ‘em iPads and data links so they can participate online, not passively watch entertainment.

via TweetDeck

RT @IanWoolf: The real question is why are taxpayers giving pensioners money for STBs INSTEAD of digital TVs? The analogue TVs will die soon

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: Twitter’s T&Cs forbid the discussion of subjects where the speaker is in any way knowledgeable about said subject. [True.]

Another sachet of this “100% Columbian Supremo” should help.

You people do understand what my qualifications are for talking about corporate M&As, right? And how hung over I am? Same thing, really.

via TweetDeck

Hang on. Skype now has what? 18% of all international voice traffic. And commentators reckon $8.5 billion is OVER-priced? Hello?

via TweetDeck

This is what I wrote about last year’s federal budget for Crikey. http://arseh.at/6t0 I’m fairly sure I was sober then.

via TweetDeck

Oddly enough, @anthonybaxter, the sachet is labelled “100% Columbian Supremo”, Rainforest Alliance Certified. Welcome to San Francisco.

@AequoEtBono You’re removing all the magic from life in that one tweet right there, you know. It just trickles away…

RT @SoniaLastrega: Navy SEALs might be too large for an email attachment. [No, usually quite trim to fit into submarine torpedo tubes.]

What IS this white powder I’m stirring into my coffee?

via TweetDeck

@DanielNguyen This is an emailed media release from Brendan O’Connor’s office. I can forward it, but it’s probably on the AG’s website too.

via TweetDeck in reply to DanielNguyen

Tip for understanding federal budget: Ignore/delete all media releases from politicians, download Budget Paper No. 2 and read carefully.

via TweetDeck

WTF? The Attorney-General reckons the NBN will “improve access to justice”? “Email me some Navy SEALs, Gerald!” Bang!

If my grandparents were still alive I’d dob on you, @RealNickHodge @lukehopewell @sexenheimer @purserj @anthonybaxter

Why are taxpayers giving pensioners money to watch television?

via TweetDeck

It is now 0530 in San Francisco. My immediate task is to download Budget Paper No. 2, read it, and write about it for Crikey. What a life.

Things I now worry about America #774: “Non-dairy creamer” and “granular sugar substitute”. I was not drinking last night.

via TweetDeck

Things I now like about America #773: Automatic press-one-button coffee machines in hotel rooms. I was not drinking last night.

via TweetDeck

OK, so if you refer to a PR manager as a “minion” you take your life into hands. And then you get another blood orange martini.

NetSuite SuiteWorld, and so it begins http://post.ly/215NS

“Design me a drink,” says the PR minion, handing me a menu. She is serious in deep shit.

via Cloudhopper

May I suggest a new metric for evaluating events? The bar staff to attendee ratio (BARfactor). SuiteWorld is at the upper end.

via Cloudhopper

Can’t log into event Wi-Fi, but vats of Napa sauvignon blanc and excellent canapes help.

via Cloudhopper

@RossPoulton The combination of “fried” and “steak” sounds a bit wrong anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to RossPoulton

OK, that’s the nap sort of done. Time to register, go to the welcome reception, then the media & analysts cocktail parsw11

via TweetDeck

RT @jstogdill: if u lived in the US and tried to find a drinkable cup before the mid 90’s you’d understand. [This is perhaps true.]

via TweetDeck

I didn’t really sleep on the plane. I rarely do. I’ll now attempt a 3-hour nap, before the first of two cocktail events tonight.

via TweetDeck

Warning: Lots of tweets tagged from NetSuite SuiteWorld for next 3+ days. http://arseh.at/56m Please adjust your filters.

Things I will never understand about America #344: People taking about Starbucks as if it’s a good thing.

via TweetDeck

Amused at my suggested media-person’s agenda for NetSuite’s SuiteWorld, packed very solidly. Stories don’t write themselves.

via TweetDeck

@garystark I’m not THAT desperate that I can’t wait to be comfortable to tweet.

Checked in at San Francisco Marriott Marquis, checking email and other little chores. http://arseh.at/6rz

Touchdown San Francisco. Early. Fly fast, we did. Updates when there is Wi-Fi.
