I will now attempt to get some sleep, since it’ll be an 0500 start for me tomorrow. Writing then being on a panel thing.

The Hyatt Hotel Canberra ain’t such a bad little shack…

via TweetDeck

This table could implode.

OH: ” So I asked, ‘Who wants to do something with chickpeas?’ And he made a huge pot, twice my size.”

via TweetDeck

@MadamQ “Mystery Korean Snack Food”? Sounds my kind of mystery! Should I maybe have a couple more pints first?

via TweetDeck

OH: “I was going to get one of those debit cards, but then I found out you had to use your own money.”

via TweetDeck

OH, him: “I saw that on Facebook.” Her, angrily: “Yeah, I know. And I saw something else on Facebook too!”

@peterhau I don’t know about dive bars plural in Canberra, but certainly dive bar singular. And I am in it.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterhau

The one problem with dive bars is their relatively sparse population of power outlets.

via TweetDeck

@Lyons_Ben @damonism For some reason I tend to tend to “magnificent dive bars”. Maybe I can see my own future sitting at the bar…

via TweetDeck

“Looks like CeBIT may be less shit than normal this year.” Ah, the emails I receive… ;)

via TweetDeck

@damonism But a dive is what I seek! Sought, and found.

via TweetDeck in reply to damonism

ABC? Or fundamentalist church? You decide! http://post.ly/280YE

The Phoenix Bar you say, @obrijo? That sounds promising.

via TweetDeck

It’s just like Hong Kong http://post.ly/280UL

@nikiaken The bus driver returned my greeting. But then that works in Sydney too, at least for me.

via TweetDeck in reply to nikiaken

Route 31 to Civic. The man accepted my NSW currency.

via TweetDeck

I think I will attempt to catch a bus to Civic. This place is weirding me out, man.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad I think if I said anything involving “motherfucker” to these so-called “students” their heads would implode.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

OH: “It’s at the Westfield at Woden, as a concierge, so it’s a really good job.” HOW DO THESE PEOPLE SURVIVE WITHOUT BEER?

via TweetDeck

I mean, I can see rows of refrigerators full of booze, and beer taps, the full enchilada. But it’s all locked behind a metal grille.

via TweetDeck

I’ve just worked out what’s wrong with this university. The bar isn’t open.

via TweetDeck

I’ve just seen something described as “a word of mouth marketing platform”. Isn’t that ENTIRELY MISSING THE FUCKING POINT?

via TweetDeck

@damonism Fortunately I’m in no hurry. My time is flexible until dinner at 1830. I might as well experience Canberra like the proles.

via TweetDeck in reply to damonism

Right. The dark secret appears to be that I can’t just catch a bus. I have to buy some bloody card first. Or it it still in transition?

via TweetDeck

I wonder if ACT public transport has dark secrets that’d make a trip from Uni of Canberra to Civic complicateder than it should be.

This “National Digital Economy Strategy” thing. Can someone read it and tell me what to think about it? http://arseh.at/7ic

via TweetDeck

@mpesce Come on in, the weather is delightful. It’s bright and clear and very Canberra in Canberra today.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

Clemons [paraphrase]: If it takes a village to raise a child, the internet is more like a slum town that’s grown up without rules.

via TweetDeck

Just starting: “Privacy and security in a connected world” with Dr Eric Clemons. http://arseh.at/7g0

via TweetDeck

@SMinney No $50 cab fare for me, travelling with Microsoft peeps.

via TweetDeck in reply to SMinney

In Canberra, dropping bags at hotel then to Uni of Canberra for 1000.

via TweetDeck

Transmitters off. See you in Canberra.

Bombardier Q400, as advertised http://post.ly/27uv6

via Posterous

Ah. We’re boarding. We’re 15 mins late, says the thing on the internet.

via TweetDeck

Canberra 1000 today: “Privacy and security in a connected world”, still time to book I guess. http://arseh.at/7g0

via TweetDeck

Oh. QF1463 is back on the board. But personally if I were planning an 0740 departure I’d probably have started boarding by now.

via TweetDeck

@peterhau You know a Q400 is just a stretched Dash-8, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to peterhau

Erm, QF1463 just disappeared off the departures board. Is that a good sign?

via TweetDeck

I shall be flying in a Bombardier Q400 today, it seems. I’m in seat 13B, but a regular Dash-8 only has 12 rows of seats. http://arseh.at/7hp

via TweetDeck

@CIOinOz Oh dear God no! I’m not offering any love to that lot behind the counter! They can make bacon tasteless, their powers… [shudder]

via TweetDeck in reply to APACloud

RT @CIOinOz: A bacon and egg roll also needs love, if that’s missing it’s going to taste bad! [True. Unsmiling staff look short on love.]

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin @darrenpauli I heard that CeBIt, rather than paying panel presenters, were now asking them to pay for the “exposure”. True?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

FFS! Bacon and egg roll. That’s bacon. An egg. And a roll. How did you manage to get it to taste so bad?

via TweetDeck

@juhasaarinen Oh it us all about shopping, I’m sure. But who’d be stupid enough to buy at airport prices? At 7am? I should do a vox pop.

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

Someone ought to explain to these arseholes the difference between an airport and a department store.

via TweetDeck

Time to check out and get to the airport. The kitchen here doesn’t open until 0700. That’s something I’ll pay more attention to next time.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: 0740 QF1463 SYD-CBR; 1000 Cybersecurity event http://arseh.at/7g0 Uni Canberra; afternoon free?; 1830 dinner with folks.

via TweetDeck

Or, @NathanaelB, unless you say MacBook, iPad, diet, pain, mortgage, debt or Bieber. In which case it becomes 130%.

via TweetDeck

RT @NathanaelB: Unless you drop “sex” or “boobs” or “OMGWTFLOL” in your tweet in which case that figure is 22%. [True.]

via TweetDeck

I always feel like I’ve been pimping events on Twitter endlessly, but individual tweets are seen by… what? Less than 10% of followers?

via TweetDeck

Why am I in Canberra, @jmacmullin? This convenient blog posts explains. http://arseh.at/7hk

via TweetDeck

Senator Conroy launches the National Digital Economy Strategy at CeBIT today. In Sydney. While I’m in Canberra. There’s my reading tonight.

via TweetDeck

Chooseday. I choose to be awake this early. I make many bad choices.
