@NewtonMark Since I don’t drive, I have to rely on the glory that is the taxi industry. It usually treats me well. Happy ending extra.

RT @spookydith: @stilgherrian I had no idea that your flight plans were so very important! http://bit.ly/lxPuZD [I really SO wish!]

via TweetDeck

Yay. Pants off in Camperdown, with excellent internets. It all helps counterbalance the 0500 start.

via TweetDeck

Thank you all for your taxi advice and welcomes, @maninultimo @edklein_ @sroc @whiterussell

via TweetDeck

Well, one hand on the wheel at least. Automatic transmission FTW.

via TweetDeck

I’d assume it’d be wrong for a taxi driver to be listening to a Cantonese phone sex line while the vehicle is in motion?

Touchdown Sydney, but

RI flight to MEL > RI flight to SYD.

via TweetDeck

Thankfully I had a decent martini before leaving the Hyatt. Small mercies, etc.

via TweetDeck

Tactical error? New Canberra terminal has no bars inside the secure area? That’s a bit wrong.

via TweetDeck

If we’re heading to the airport, I’d expected to have seen more blue signs with a little aeroplane. And who’s Russell?

via TweetDeck

OK, the time has come to make a slow, deliberate move from Hyatt to airport for the 1830 QF806 CBR-SYD.

I’m not a theist myself, @jonoabroad, but I’ve no problem with those who choose to have a god or gods in their life. Theism isn’t the issue.

via TweetDeck

Mind you, for the rest of the evening we’ll have to put up with endless self-congratulating anti-theists. Better get an umbrella.

via TweetDeck

@neilphillips What I’ve seen of the @AdshelAus thing, it seems they don’t have spine or clear policies. In 2011? This is the first glitch?

via TweetDeck

@AdshelAus Your use of “orchestrated” with “complaints” is meant to insinuate what, exactly? That organised people’s views are less valid?

via TweetDeck in reply to Adshel

@mattatheque Microsoft will post the video of today’s forum… somewhere. I’ll rebleat it extensively when I know.

@boyjournalist NBN will use wireless for the 94 thru 97 percentiles of population, so the $1.1B Ericsson deal will be for that.

RT @IanKath: Bus shelter sex is too much like planking. [I’m sure that means you’re doing it wrong. If you consider this diagram…]

via TweetDeck

@peterjblack I’m sure I don’t know what you mean. Also, the knees and buttocks, gravel rash.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

@peterjblack You can’t have safe sex in a bus shelter. Benches too narrow, slip and fall onto asphalt: grazed elbows ensue. Apparently.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

@obrijo All good suggestions for imbibing Culture, but I’m now noticing how tired I am. Walking a gallery will have to wait. Bring wine!

via TweetDeck in reply to obrijo

RT @Wyld: Your mission: Find Christopher Pyne. [Oh I’d rather not head back up the hill today, and Mr Pyne would be in the House right now.]

via TweetDeck

@QF1 There’s nothing at Fyshwick or Mitchell that can’t be found on the internets… or so I would imagine.

via TweetDeck in reply to QF1

I have three hours to kill before heading to the airport and my 1830 flight to Sydney. I’m at the Hyatt for now but easily lured elsewhere.

via TweetDeck

Kudos to the staff at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra for supplying an extension cable and a decent coffee, all with a friendly smile.

via TweetDeck

RT @PointZeroOne: sounds like you are easily pleased [Some would beg to different there, I would imagine.]

In the cold clear light of a Canberra afternoon, I’m wondering whether my Crikey piece is a bit too cranky today.

Me at Crikey: “Conroy’s blueprint for a digital economy … that doesn’t need an NBN” http://arseh.at/7jw [Paywall’d, free trial]

My faith in the banking system has been restored. Not that I have a short attention, um, thing.

via TweetDeck

I have just lost my faith in the banking system.

Grabbing lunch with the usual suspects at Queen’s Terrace Cafe, Parliament House, Canberra.

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed. Yay. Now lurking in Parliament House.

Must. Rush. And. Finish. Article.

I always worry about how I’ll be introduced. Ta, @mpesce.

via TweetDeck

The very first episode of “Yes Minister” was actually entitled “Open Government”. Nearly 40 years ago…

via TweetDeck

Nope, @serkowski, no live stream from but it’ll all be posted somewhere later.

via TweetDeck

@azbashakoor I do most of my best writing before 0700 actually.

via TweetDeck in reply to azbashakoor

I am in. I am in the theatre at Parliament House. I am miked up.

via TweetDeck

Oh good, cab dropped me at the wrong door.

via TweetDeck

My thingo on the National Digital Economy Strategy is nearly written, but it’s time to start heading to Parliament House.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce O hai, have you been told about any vehicle-sharing arrangements for the trip up the Hill?

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

Sudden thought as I write this op-ed: Over the years, how many politicians have had illicit sex in this specific room at the Hyatt Canberra?

via TweetDeck

I need danger money for this shit.

via TweetDeck

Wed plan, part A: Write about Digital Economy Strategy http://arseh.at/7ic then Microsoft Politics & Technology Forum http://arseh.at/6h6

Widdlesday. And I already have, thank you.
