The main panel discussion for the “Patch Monday” podcast has now been edited. It’s way past my bedtime, so the rest will happen tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

@erikarn Oh this’ll edit up quite well. It’s just a matter of plodding through the process. Mostly sweetenting rather than structural.

via TweetDeck in reply to erikarn

I think I’ll do the rough cut of the panel discussion tonight, once the backup finishes, and then finish the podcast in the morning.

via TweetDeck

Wondering whether to start editing tonight, or do it all tomorrow morning. Either way I think I’ll be filing later than usual.

via TweetDeck

And that was a great recording session! Beyond the geekery to some good food-for-thought stuff about using government data!

via TweetDeck

Rebooting large sections of the universe.

via TweetDeck

Oh well done Skype, what comprehensive crash!

via TweetDeck

About to record “Patch Monday” podcast with @flinklabs @jeamland @erikarn on serving a Sydney Buses app or similar. Deep geekery this week.

ESR posits an interesting counterfactual: we’d have no web if DARPA hadn’t have lied. http://arseh.at/849

New blog post: “Weekly Wrap 54”, being a bit of a thin week. http://arseh.at/847

Hmmm… Winter Solstice on Tuesday night… Wondering what to do, given this year will be a little bit special for reasons to be disclosed.

Oh. The fire is still going. I AM PROMETHEUS!

@maxious I’ll happily rail against govts trying to ban ridicule and disrepute [like, fuck off] but that’s different from CC purism.

via TweetDeck in reply to maxious

@maxious Erm, why can’t you base your license on a CC license but add more stuff? It’s just then your own license, surely?

via TweetDeck in reply to maxious

Migrating to Tea Tree Cottage, which will be easier to keep warm tonight. http://arseh.at/3z9

@emmackat I’d gladly record / broadcast from the open-top bus, if I could be sure there’d be a clean data link. Not so certain up here.

via TweetDeck in reply to emmackat

@flinklabs @mpesce Back when I worked for ABC Radio I loved doing outside broadcasts from unusual locations. Great fun.

via TweetDeck in reply to flinklabs

I have previously recorded “Patch Monday” with me in a cafe, or on a park bench, and the other talent elsewhere via Skype.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce Even with a producer, I’d still physically need to be on the bus. Which implies putting on pants.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

I thought of recording the conversation on a bus, @mpesce, and would do so if I wasn’t in the Blue Mountains today.

via TweetDeck

Also, NSW Dept Transport has been watching our conversation this afternoon, has sent a statement to be included.

via TweetDeck

Recording the “Patch Monday” podcast tonight with @flinklabs @jeamland @erikarn on serving a Sydney Buses app or similar. Should be fun.

via TweetDeck

So as not to dissuade people from visiting Bunjaree Cottages, I’m in The Studio, which is unfinished and not rented to punters.

via TweetDeck

Yay! I’ve finally gotten the ambient temperature in here above 15C! I will definitely move to Tea Tree Cottage before nightfall.

via TweetDeck

@erikarn I hath sent you a DM about continuing this conversation on the record this evening.

via TweetDeck in reply to erikarn

RT @Wendycarlisle: One is tempted to conclude a Sydney buses app would be a brilliant visualization of a disaster. [Not much faith, eh?]

via TweetDeck

@flinklabs I can’t DM you as you’re not following me. I’ll try again shortly. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to flinklabs

@erikarn Oh I know you’re well across this! The trick in this one is, indeed, making sure each app request isn’t a database hit.

via TweetDeck in reply to erikarn

The tooth, @sylmobile? Still rather painful but subsiding, thank the gods. A weekend diet of codeine and vodka seems to help. Somewhat.

via TweetDeck

Ooooook I am now being overwhelmed, thank you @Drag0nista @flinklabs @erikarn … stand by while I digest what you’re all saying.

via TweetDeck

@flinklabs Aha! I was about the phone you. I’m thinking of doing all this for the “Patch Monday” podcast for ZDNet. Interested in chatting?

via TweetDeck in reply to flinklabs

Nice guesstimate, @leslienassar, Sydney Buses has a fleet of 2100+ it says on out-of-date Wikipedia. http://arseh.at/845

via TweetDeck

Now, who do I know that’s good on talking about issues like bureaucratic fear and excuse-making in Gov 2.0 matters? Hah! Everyone!

via TweetDeck

Absolutely, @infoholic @en_gy, there’s always a bureaucratic fear of the proles having access to raw data. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit.

via TweetDeck

RT @infoholic Could it be that Sydney Buses are simply paranoid about data of their bus positions (i.e. lateness) being publicly accessible?

via TweetDeck

It seems NSW Transport covesr their end of the Sydney SMS-a-bus-time messaging, so presumably not a revenue-raiser. http://arseh.at/844

via TweetDeck

If anyone wants to have a chat about how you’d serve out that data efficiently, please DM or email me. It strikes me as being cheap to do.

via TweetDeck

Thanks @alexonthebus @infoholic @leslienassar @matt_levinson I just need someone who is not me to do the load calculations.

via TweetDeck

Sydney Buses didn’t have the computer capacity to serve this app? Can someone tell me how much/little would be needed? http://arseh.at/842

Before people sat at their computers, naked, exchanging porn on the internet… there were typewriters. http://arseh.at/840

“Patch Monday” isn’t [hasn’t been?] a ranty sort of podcast, @D_Keating. I hope it’s been a bit more focussed. http://arseh.at/ch

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: Talk about the dull pain that is the IT industry. [That needs narrowing down. Unless I just drink absinthe and rant.]

via TweetDeck

Pondering what might be interesting to talk about in the podcast. It’s hard to ponder when the dull pain continues.

via TweetDeck

Sun plan, unordered: Plan & record “Patch Monday” podcast, which I haven’t even started yet; migrate to another cottage, probably Tea Tree.

via TweetDeck

Another 11C day ahead. It’s a good thing my plans for the day are relatively simple. I think.
