This continues to be one of my favourite cartoons. It has a unicorn in it. http://arseh.at/9a8

@viveka I seem to recall the book had a journalist who went the entire journey without filing a story or worrying about paying the bills.

@R3mm3t Thanks very much. There’s also some good discussion coming off that article.

@R3mm3t I have no idea who Leroy is, but he has fixed the website version of the story.

RT @corduroy: Vermouth wash would be OK. [Now you’re thinking. Possibly absinthe too.]

They’ll battle the pirates now: “Somali Pirates Threaten European Oil Security” http://arseh.at/9a0

William Gibson’s “Spook Country” was an enjoyable enough read, @oliyoung, but I had trouble suspending disbelief.

via TweetDeck

RT @robynp: You think that’s bad, I mistook the Radox for mouthwash this morning! [That’s a win right there!]

via TweetDeck

Why does mouthwash have to taste so awful? Why can’t we have tom yum mouthwash? Or mouthwash bernaise?

via TweetDeck

RT @lvlld: USAF’s real enemy has always been the A-10. [True. Cheap and effective aircraft are the last thing they want.]

via TweetDeck

@moldor Yeah I’m well aware of that. That’s kinda my point. And touched upon in the article I linked to. But that is the plan.

via TweetDeck in reply to moldor

Hang on. USAF plans to replace the A-10 Warthogs with F-35 JSFs? Wow, cost effective. http://arseh.at/99y

via TweetDeck

@bernietb Sure. What’s the rush? What would I conceivably be changing in my own life in response to analysis of the Norway thing?

via TweetDeck in reply to bernietb

There’s enough stress and upfuckedness locally, indeed personally, without engaging in recreation grief and outrage over distant strangers.

via TweetDeck

I’m tuning out of the story until we start getting analysts from experts rather than speculation, @andrew_hedge @LorneFranks.

via TweetDeck

Maybe it’s too early in the cycle, @BernardKeane. We’re still on “loss of innocence” clichés today. We get “X caused it” clichés tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

I was under the impression Barrie Cassidy was a journalist, but critical thinking seemed to escape him today. Still, it IS “Insiders”. Sigh.

via TweetDeck

Cassidy tries to link the Norwegian tragedy to R18+ games, assuming causation. Repeatedly. Also, “phone hacking”. Bah! http://arseh.at/99v

via TweetDeck

I have just read the transcript of Home Affairs minister Brendan O’Connor on today. My conclusion? Barrie Cassidy is an idiot.

via TweetDeck

RT @GeordieGuy: Do you have evidence to suggest that is what it wants? [Yes, their many blog posts suggesting business uses for one.]

via TweetDeck

If Twitter wants to be considered a business tool, their search shouldn’t be overloaded at this hour. Or any hour.

via TweetDeck

I was meant to write something else today, but I’m rapidly losing energy and interest.

via TweetDeck

Unchallenged on the road to Paris, eh? So just like the Wehrmacht… /cc @trib @nanopunk @mpesce @ScottRhodie [HT SEKRIT advisor]

via TweetDeck

Look, @RealNickHodge @nanopunk @WarWraith, it’s not ME who needs medication for premature congratulation, but the Prime Minister. [Image!]

via TweetDeck

Yes, @johnallsopp, “fatal accident” would come under “something horrible”. Or a crippling one. Unlikely, perhaps, but far from impossible.

via TweetDeck

Just to make it clear, I know nothing about bicycle racing. And care even less. My point is about the folly of premature congratulation.

via TweetDeck

RT @jkerrison: … He can only lose now by not finishing. [Precisely. Something horrible could happen, Der.] /cc @trib @mpesce @johnallsopp

via TweetDeck

Writer of famous headline “Headless body in topless bar” retires. http://arseh.at/99s HT @mfarnsworth

via TweetDeck

I think the Ranga-in-Chief is a bit previous in issuing a congratulatory message to Mr Cadel Evans. It could still go horribly wrong.

via TweetDeck

I only have one evening free in Melbourne, @anthonycole, Thursday, so I might have to select a venue and make it an all-comers event.

New blog post: “Visiting Melbourne for IBM’s Pulse 11” http://arseh.at/99q

via TweetDeck

Twitter’s enjoyment factor is directly proportional to the speed at which you can add breaking-news and TV-show words to your filters.

via TweetDeck

It’s kinda half-way through the day and I’m kinda half-way through the writing I wanted to do. I think that’s a reasonable position.

via TweetDeck

I’d prefer not to engage in further speculation about the Rohypnol, @expectproblems @lelak. And NOTHING tastes better with Red Bull.

via TweetDeck

There’s a solution to that, of course. What was the name of that highway in Iraq again? That “traffic jam” was cleared pretty quick.

via TweetDeck

Avoid Parramatta Rd, nearby streets in Lidcombe, Auburn: @nswpolice. Major delays. Customers attempting to attend premises of new retailer.

via TweetDeck

Using the word “Rohypnol” in a sentence. The sentence is not “I put Rohypnol in their drink, and now I just wait.” Probably.

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed, with @peterjblack on R18+ games, porn, Facebook controls, crime. It’ll be online tomorrow mid-morning.

via TweetDeck

Has anyone seen a button like this anywhere else? It’d come in handy! http://arseh.at/99c

via TweetDeck

Sun plan: Big breakfast; file podcast; write op-eds for @technologyspec, @ABCthedrum; map out next week’s schedule, inc Melbourne trip.

via TweetDeck

Looking back, it’s no wonder I’m still tired today. 12 articles written, 11 published, 3 radio spots, a podcast… and more writing today.
