Errands done. Work done. Week done. Back at my Camperdown hideaway and calling it a day.

@mediahunter Knockers in the woodwork? Wouldn’t that run the risk of splinters in the nipples?

Part 1 of @BernardKeane’s thing is not paywalled, so you should just bloody well read it. http://arseh.at/7l6

@vealmince I’ll bet you’re against the gratuitous use of nuclear weapons too. Soft-cock.

@SMinney Ah yes, Estimates. That’s why I couldn’t meet a couple Senators I wanted to catch up with. Bloody Senate, actually doing work… ;)

Try The Economist’s “Politician, heal thyself: Current lot couldn’t pull the skin off a rice pudding”, @expectproblems http://arseh.at/7mn

It’s not just my theory, @expectproblems. The inimitable @BernardKeane and others have written about how the government avoids hard stuff.

via TweetDeck

I must admit, @charispalmer, our current risk-averse government does tend to say “Let’s have a consultation!” instead of “Let’s fix this!”

@dahowlett How come YOU get the porn calls on your ‘droid and I don’t? Now I’m… is “jealous” the right word?

Is there some reason we’re seeing a bazillion ministerial media releases this week? Have they all taken an emetic or something?

via TweetDeck

@en_gy Ah this IS using the Wi-Fi. I dropped the phone earlier. I hope it isn’t geb0rken.

via TweetDeck

@EnsignR Erm, that was “rebooting” everything.

via TweetDeck in reply to EnsignR

@EnsignR Oh by tethering I did mean by Wi-Fi. Normally seamless. Now, failage even after rooting everything. Oh well. No email until later.

via TweetDeck in reply to EnsignR

Also, I get the weirdest phone calls.

via TweetDeck

Poo. My MacBook Pro is refusing to tether with my Android phone today. Irritation ensues. Also, no email.

@rayschippers I will be putting breach disclosure on the agenda. ;)

@ScottRhodie Oh ta. And you’re not biased in the least! ;)

Mobile: A lovely morning walk to Stanmore Public School, there to encounter the Minister for Home Affairs and Justice. In his red cape.

Actually all-day confidence USED to be about fluoride in toothpaste, but I think that role has since been usurped by tampons.

RT @NewtonMark: I thought so many Australians had already connected to the internet with confidence that we’d reached market saturation. [Y]

@sroc “Policy Document” isn’t specific enough. White Paper is a particular point in the policy development cycle. Like your thinking though.

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

Public consultations start next month via a discussion paper. White Paper expected to be completed by first half 2012.

via TweetDeck

“… to provide a comprehensive blueprint to help Australians connect to the internet with confidence.” Like fluoride in toothpaste.

via TweetDeck

Media release: “The Gillard Government today announced it will develop Australia’s first Cyber White Paper…”

via TweetDeck

RT @expectproblems: Every fourth word seems to be ‘cyber’ or some other buzz-word. [Yep, I’ll have to recycle my rant about that.]

via TweetDeck

iiNet reckons content owners are stepping away from AFACT. http://arseh.at/7ma

via TweetDeck

That “Cyber White Paper”? Fairfax seems to have been given a preview. http://arseh.at/7m9

via TweetDeck

@sroc Well, all the White Papers come as PDFs these days anyway. They have for years. Maybe a tech-neutral term is needed?

Fri plan: 0930 Justice Minister presser, Stanmore; writing; then more writing, errands in Enmore & Newtown, and Friday stuff, order TBA.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… The Attorney-General is launching a thing called the “Cyber White Paper” this morning. More joyful reading for us all there.

via TweetDeck

Friedday. And I do feel fried.
