@sroc But close enough, no? Open tech from early-1990s would, if patented, only be available around now. Thought-food, triggers a what-if?

@sroc I’m terribly sorry for not explaining the entire subtlety of the patent system with academic-style citations in a single retweet.

@franksting $25k on photocopying/printing for a whole school for a year sounds quite small to me. How many students?

RT @rwang0: RT @marcoarment: If Tim Berners-Lee had patented the World Wide Web, we’d be able to use it freely starting today.

Pondering. 1. What to write for CSO tomorrow. 2. When to fit in Sydney trips for the rest of August. Tomorrow for the weekend again?

The future of banking, “Tomorrow’s World” 1969. http://youtu.be/SSTMraoU… I rather like the computer’s voice.

@martinbarry Ah yes, typo in the Crikey piece. I have no access to the CMS, so I’ll email a minion. Thanks for spotting it.

Too many splinters.

The problem with writing op-eds is that you actually need enough of an opinion on something to be interesting. Today I do not. Grrr.

“Gamification is Bullshit”, says @ibogost http://arseh.at/9sp Much better than my http://arseh.at/6q9 HT @trib @D_Keating

It’s rather sad, it’s it @PointZeroOne? Our expectations are that these companies will be useless and uncooperative.

via TweetDeck

RT @PointZeroOne: Nice this facebook archive has even given me my photos from my albums. [Generous Facebook, giving you things YOU own.]

@twcau It’s not that ads happen, it’s that your name and image is being used to endorse ads for products and services. Rather different.

via TweetDeck in reply to twcau

@twcau I don’t think “continually monitor the cunts to see if they’ve changed the rules on you” is how service providers should behave.

via TweetDeck in reply to twcau

@twcau Ah, it’s a shame you didn’t pass on a warning instead of just laughing at victims down the track. Seems uncharitable.

@meljewell The Crikey piece appears in the lunchtime email and on the website at that time. Scroll back in my feed for source linkage.

“The Turnbull Broadband Network” on @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast. http://arseh.at/9sh My @TurnbullMalcolm chat posted Monday.

via TweetDeck

RT @sylmobile: Flabbergasted. I hope you used the word, flabbergasted. [No, but I did use the word “arseholes”.]

via TweetDeck

Well I just filed a little thing for Crikey about the @LinkedIn upfuckage. I’m still amazed that they could be so stupid.

via TweetDeck

It appears what @LinkedIn did may have breached Dutch law, for a start. http://arseh.at/9sd

via TweetDeck

Seriously, folks, @LinkedIn pulled a Facebook and opened up your settings without asking. Greedy fucks. http://arseh.at/9sc

via TweetDeck

Oi! @LinkedIn! You don’t just turn on a setting letting you use my name and image in advertising! Not! Fucking! On! http://arseh.at/9sc

Yesterday’s “London riots: the (social) media is to blame, apparently” by @BernardKeane is rather good. http://arseh.at/9sa

Thu plan: A day of reading and reflection, mostly, so I might have meaningful opinions to put into op-eds tomorrow and Monday; details TBA.

Bloody hell, @mpesce’s been scoffing the hallucinogens again. This will not end well.

@ozdj @KyBusiness I honestly have no idea what you’re talking about.

Fursday begins.
