Finally fading. Sleep may even beckon. Adieu.

@RealMichaelTunn Neither Silicon Valley nor the Castro this trip, I’m covering a conference then coming straight back. But it goes well, ta.

via TweetDeck

RT @bernietb: “Gold Coast lifestyle”? Is there mention of girls spilling out of their dresses covered in fake tan? [No. Thank the gods.]

via TweetDeck

“Elegant dining encased in cutting edge design… breathtaking views… relaxed ambience to completely encompass the Gold Coast lifestyle.”

via TweetDeck

Oh. The invites for NEXT week’s sponsored binge drinking events have started to arrive. It is getting so OARSUM I might bleed.

via TweetDeck

@NickHodgeMSFT I am in America and it is not listening to you. Not one bit.

via TweetDeck in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@engochick Ta. The episode of “The 9pm Edict” podcast I did about gamification was, erm, less nice.

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

Rather than taking sleeping pills, I should just read all these transcripts of Senator Penny Wong’s budget interviews that keep arriving.

via TweetDeck

@engochick That’s very generous of spirit to plug my work at a competing outlet. Thank you.

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

So before I consume drugs in a futile attempt to get some sleep, what else do I have to pimp tonight?

via TweetDeck

And my first op-ed for @technologyspec was posted in the beta last week: “Gamification: Hot, new, unethical?” http://arseh.at/6q9

via TweetDeck

I should’ve mentioned. @technologyspec is thusly so on Twitter and is edited by the gorgeous @charispalmer /cc @EmilyCBaxter

via TweetDeck

@Wyld @quietdiscourse Thank you, gentlemen.

via TweetDeck

@rwang0 Not the W, I haven’t made it that far from the Marriott yet. It’s two blocks away! ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to rwang0

Taken together, those two tweets do indicate that, yes, as @dahowlett said, I am a whore.

via TweetDeck

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “NetSuite big fish push to cut mid-sized Oz?” http://arseh.at/6vs

via TweetDeck

Technology Spectator officially launched today. http://technologyspectat… Disclosure: I’ve been commissioned to write for them.

via TweetDeck

Right. I’m being “encouraged” to leave this open bar to head to a different open bar. This will end well.

via Cloudhopper

Oh, the video of me and @dahowlett talking NetSuite in Australia. http://ow.ly/4SFLl I ain’t seen it yet, any good?

via TweetDeck

ZDNet Australia story filed! Crikey correction snippet filed! Faaaark! Now, 7pm. Where to head for food and drink…

via TweetDeck

Trying to finish two things before deadline, while missing the awards thingy and noting an invitation for another cocktail party.

via TweetDeck

Hang on what? Joan Rivers is presenting at the awards thing, @paul_carlisle? Bummer. I have to finish this article!

via TweetDeck

Note to self: Watching cooking show videos on the web will not help finish this NetSuite story before deadline.

via TweetDeck

“Vegan Black Metal Chef” episode 1: Pad Thai. Um, sure. http://arseh.at/6vc HT @GreenJ Ping @ApostrophePong

via TweetDeck

After an editorial chat with @engochick I now have a vague idea what I’m doing. It’s only taken me 30 years.

via TweetDeck

Back in my hotel room so I can concentrate on writing a couple of things. A story or two to finish before dinner, 3.5 hours away.

via TweetDeck

Just finished being briefed on NetSuite’s APAC activities with @sholtomac &a@benkepesepes. Pondering how to turn it into storisw11

via TweetDeck

OH: “Arguing on the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics. Even if you win, you’re still retarded.”

via TweetDeck

@pinglo I really think that if people photograph their food they should also photograph their waste products. It’s only fair.

via TweetDeck in reply to pinglo

I agree that’s a great pirate TV effort, @jasonlangenauer http://arseh.at/6v0 but this one is my fave http://arseh.at/6v1

via TweetDeck

Italian food for lunch today. See, that’s how you’re meant to use Twitter right there.

via TweetDeck

Damn. I have missed @benkepes etc’s “Trends in Cloud Computing” panel ‘cos there’s a mistake in my schedule. I might cry.

via TweetDeck

I am suddenly realising that I simply do not understand anything about business software whatsoever.

via TweetDeck

So the crowd broke out in applause, even cheers, for… pivot-like reports? Don’t we have minions for that sort of shit?

via TweetDeck

“Keynotes” longer than a feature film should be banned. Ignores human attention cycles. I get cranky. And I can buy a gun in America.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Perhaps we should combine @HowlTweeter with a numbers station. http://arseh.at/6uz

via TweetDeck

These last few demos are striking me as sensible and logical extensions, rather that revolutions. It all adds up, tho, I suppose.

via TweetDeck

Oh. We’re going to wrap up with… some more product demos. That banging sound is my head hitting the table. Repeatedly.

via TweetDeck

@drewhorine A “think-for-yourself” mindset is a definite culture change for the majority of businesses, I’d suggest. Natural selection?

via TweetDeck in reply to drewhorine

Product demo number four: NetSuite’s new iPhone app. Well, not so much a demo, but a slideshow. Does this actually exist yet?

via TweetDeck

@anthonybaxter My next story about Google is SO going to have the word “broom handle” in the headline.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonybaxter

RT @benkepes: Check out @vendhq - they do POS in the for SMB and y’know what? It actually works. FTW

via TweetDeck

That said, a NetSuite guy will be talking to me later, explaining how latency is sorted and won’t be a problem.

via TweetDeck

Goldberg is back on stage, showing a concept for NetSuite Checkout reference implementation. Point of Sale in the cloud? Hi, latency!

via TweetDeck

@anthonybaxter Google doesn’t invite me to shit. I must be categorised wrong. Is there something here that annoyed ‘em? http://arseh.at/6uy

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonybaxter

All this “social collaboration in business” assumes all your staff know how to think and create their own workflows. Wise?

via TweetDeck

And our third demo of software talking to software is QonText and NetSuite doing the “social” thang. I am old and jaded. Ignore me.

via TweetDeck

So while this is perfectly good tech, @benkepes, for me I think “Yeah nice solid work” not “OMFG THIS IS TEH FUTUREZ!!!1!!ONE”

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @benkepes, what we’re seeing now is Google Docs API talking to NetSuite API. Gasp! Software talking to software! Cats! Dogs!

via TweetDeck

Anyone remember when “keynote” meant “insightful presentation about the world” rather than “product demo and pimpage”? Me neither.

via TweetDeck

@anthonybaxter Hey are you here in SFO at the moment? Google I/O is about a block from where I am, y’see.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonybaxter

benkepes The thing that amazes me is that people who should realize that cloud enables realtime warehousing are surprized by this demo…

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 2:49 AM, May 12th, 2011 via TweetDeck)

Learning about “wave management” of warehouse workflow. eBizNET’s system manages this. Now, who do I know with a warehouse?

via TweetDeck

Well, a live demo of the warehouse system with Golberg as a picker is kinda amusing. [unthud]

via TweetDeck

Man on stage explains how good it was building a warehouse system in SuiteCloud it was cool it was good yada yada yada. [thud]

via TweetDeck

@Lyall I’ll certainly keep using arseh.at ‘cos I’m lazy. Choosing a different one and reconfiguring would take MINUTES of work.

via TweetDeck in reply to Lyall

Also pimping SuiteCloud environment, where you run your plugin apps. Mirrors Salesforce.com’s model. This IS the model these days.

via TweetDeck

Goldberg is pimping the SuiteFlow visual workflow “coding” tool, he reckons it’s more a configuration tool.

via TweetDeck

Goldberg’s very first words on stage: “Hello. I’m Evan Goldberg and I’m an egomaniac.”

via TweetDeck

OMFG! Pre-keynote video is a witty animated send-up of Goldberg’s career. SUCH a change from overblown self-important promotions.

via TweetDeck

Suddenly wondering what folks are thinking when they see the arseh.at URL shortener. It’s an Australian thing, I guess…

via TweetDeck

About to begin: Keynote by NetSuite CTO Evan Goldberg, live video stream at http://arseh.at/6ux Got your buzzword bingo cards ready?

via TweetDeck

@anthonybaxter @jdub Oh the business card idea is excellent! I’ve been wondering what to put on it.

via TweetDeck

@domknight Agreed, a confusing hashtag, but hey. The hospitality for these events is always awesome. No risk of sobriety.

via TweetDeck in reply to domknight

Chef for last night’s dinner at Larry Ellison’s little shack was Michael Mina. http://arseh.at/6uw /cc @pgreenbe

via TweetDeck

Heading to the media room to see if they have breakfast items that don’t have 150g of sugar per object. Wish me luck.

via TweetDeck

@mjec Marketing courses tell you to talk in the imperative, eh? An industry based on lessons in being a rude prick. Lovely. [Pot, kettle]

via TweetDeck in reply to mjec

I see the stream is still being spammed with imperative-voice orders. Check out this. Visit that. Do this. Um, ASK, don’t demand.

via TweetDeck

@anthonybaxter What’s wrong with being a talentless hack? FFS, we have to earn a living somehow! And I’m well past rent boy stage. Mostly.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonybaxter

@RealMichaelTunn O hai. [waves from San Francisco]

via TweetDeck

This “100% Columbian Supremo” the hotel supplies really does get the day going with a bang.

via TweetDeck

So have Sony lost any more credit card numbers today? It’s been, what, a week? Surely time for another batch…

via TweetDeck

Wed plan, US time: NetSuite SuiteWorld all day here in SFO, including podcast interviews and the gala dinner tonight. http://arseh.at/6uv

via TweetDeck

@AeolianSharp The hard is a gloriously old bit of tech, I agree. And great to see you again! /cc @charispalmer

via TweetDeck in reply to AeolianSharp

@mattevan5 A Slingbox? Nice bit of kit, it seems, but I wouldn’t spend several hundred dollars for maybe 4 hours of viewing a year.

via TweetDeck in reply to mattevan5

And here I am, awake again after almost 4 hours of sleep. This’ll be a great day! [blurs]
