@DrJJoyner O hai. I’m surprised that you linked to my, erm, colourful post. Goes against American language standards a bit. ;) Thanks.

@futureidentity Sadly I am well awake of what mt relationship to Google is… fodder. arseh.at/9wk

Here’s @ApostrophePong’s edit of the video from the first Black Dog Ride last year. arseh.at/9ws

via TweetDeck

Another Black Dog Ride has just been launched by @hollingsworth. Receive explanations and give money at arseh.at/9wr

@ApostrophePong I cannot account for your boat noodle deficit. Perhaps Kevin Andrews is responsible?

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Ah, dialog! “Sawadee krub!” “Usual?” “Krub.” And I take a seat.

via TweetDeck

The next hour will involve boat noodles, a rather kitsch laminated tablecloth, finally reading Crikey, and little else.

via TweetDeck

I do give bonus points to one commenter, Lykurgus, who called another “you prokaryote!”

via TweetDeck

I’m a tad overwhelmed with tweets, blog comments and email right now. If I missed something important, please ping me again in the morning.

via TweetDeck

Someone just DMd me to say, “I don’t think they’ve ever seen a cunt in Alabama.” That’s just how my life is today.

via TweetDeck

@smperris Stereo is perhaps overkill, except for panel discussions where I remix it to space everyone across the image to aid listening.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@smperris Is there too much stereo spread in “Patch Monday”? Or is it just unexpected?

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

Thanks for the pointer to @piwik as open-source web analytics, @10comm. I shall investigate at some point. Cheers.

@jarruzza Hah! I wrote a LOT about internet censorship when that was a seriously live issue and I pay David Vaile to promote me.

via TweetDeck in reply to jarruzza

@jonoabroad Oh yes I’m fine, thank you. A tooth is developing an abscess and I’m just nipping it in the bud. Or it’s cancer and I’ll die.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Evening theory: Washing clothes, boat noodles, antibiotics, reading and writing. This really is the glamorous life!

via TweetDeck

The Crikey piece on the same issue has less “language”, and so far fewer arsehat commenters. arseh.at/9wk

via TweetDeck

Wondering whether I’ll have the energy to go through the many comments on my Google piece at my website. arseh.at/9vn

via TweetDeck

Errand complete. Diagnosis confirmed,. Medication obtained. Back at Camperdown base, where battery-powered objects have been recharged.

via TweetDeck

On errands, which may include a brief medical visit. Very much offline, as batteries are dead.

Me at Crikey: “To Google, we are data fodder, and I am an unperson” arseh.at/9wk [Paywall’d, maybe, free trial]

@franksting I’ll do Baba another time. I’ve settled… elsewhere.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Oh no. Change strategy. No laksa when wearing light-coloured clothing.

via TweetDeck

@franksting I shall give Baba a try then. It’s only a short walk up to the Grace.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@stufromoz @franksting Oooh no yuck! Jimmy’s laksa was cheap and nasty when I tried it, AND THEY DO NOT HAVE A BAR.

via TweetDeck

“Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names”, a good list for starters. arseh.at/9wi

@smperris I am open to suggestions regarding lunch. I’m currently at the Hilton, which I understand to be close to you.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@PointZeroOne “Viral”, you say? Oh dear. Yes, that does look like a distinct traffic spike on my website. Goodness.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@beneltham Excellent. But for now, I seek lunch and something to go with it. Then I’ll check in and run some errands.

via TweetDeck in reply to beneltham

Since it’s cloudy, and in the absence of any evidence to the contrary, I believe the Sun to be over the Yard Arm. Accomplices?

via TweetDeck

OMFG. The Wall Street Journal has linked arseh.at/9wg to an Outside the Beltway post arseh.at/9wh about my Google problem.

via TweetDeck

Interview recorded. And now the hactic-pace of the day subsides a bit. In theory.

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed. Now, I have five minutes to prepare for an interview…

via TweetDeck

mickthesub1 Who really gives a rat’s arse how journalists see each other. for christ’s sake, find something interesting to talk about rather than crap

RT @Warlach Ironically, I remember a drunken night with @stilgherrian where ‘memory hole’ became a rather crude euphemism. [I don’t.]

via TweetDeck

I am not dead. I am not imprisoned. I am Writing.

via TweetDeck

@wolfcat Bah! I’ve done Blue Mountains to Sydney by train ~weekly for 6 months. One problem ever: during that disaster-declared major storm.

via TweetDeck in reply to wolfcat

ABC story filed. From a moving train.

via TweetDeck

RT @GreenJ so bob katter’s straight!? this changes everything.

via TweetDeck

@Skud I’d he happy to write something provided there’s no rush. Friday is the earliest I could even think about it.

via TweetDeck in reply to Skud

Mobile: ETA cab 5 mins; taxi to Wentworth Falls; 0836 train to Sydney; change Central; Town Hall station; Hilton Hotel for 1100 recording.

via TweetDeck

@drymogwai AFAIK nothing in any document, from Senator Conroy or @TurnbullMalcolm, says anything other than hand-wavey download “speed”.

via TweetDeck in reply to drymogwai

Part of me says I should get a halfway-decent camera to record those sunrises, but another part says, no, they’re mine to enjoy right here.

via TweetDeck

@GeorgeReese I’m afraid I’m shaking my head in disbelief. This really is basic for a global company to deal with, not Google’s first time.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

Wed plan: Write for ABC; bump out; 0836 train to Sydney; 1100 Shady RAT interview; errands; a busy afternoon and evening of writing.

via TweetDeck

@GeorgeReese Ah, but I think it IS willful ignorance. I don’t accept that Google can play the “we didn’t know” card. /cc @Steve_Lockstep

via TweetDeck

@drymogwai @TurnbullMalcolm Discussing upload/download asymmetry was on my list, with other things, just ran out of time. My fault.

via TweetDeck in reply to drymogwai

@GeorgeReese Hey I got up early to write something else, and I’m covering ground that’s already in the comments. Appreciate your time.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese And I come back to the trigger. They began by telling me MY name was wrong because it didn’t follow THEIR rules. No. No. No.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese I tried to channel precisely what was driving my anger, and I daresay 10x more people read that post as a result.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese Oh I know what I said. With cold, clear deliberation over exactly how many times to use the word “cunt”, and where.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese I’m sorry, but I don’t go for the “poor little Google, cut them some slack” idea. We’ll have to agree to disagree there.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese Plus the material collected by @Skud indicates serious inconsistency and incompetence. arseh.at/9vr

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese Google isn’t some kiddie-startup. This is the worst handling of this “situation” I’ve experienced in 30 years. Unacceptable.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese I don’t expect “entire world” but I do expect Google. Especially given “situation” is far from unique and not their first case.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese Hmmm… I don’t think you’re following the issues of identity, culture and power here. Or the personal insult.

via TweetDeck

@GeorgeReese I feel strongly about this. My message is deliberate. It’s not bureaucratic nicety. Google offended my very sense of self.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

@GeorgeReese No, my response was very, very angry. But even if anger is “childish”, corporations need to know that’s what they trigger.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

Oh hello. Here’s an email from Brian of the Google Profiles Support Team. A quite inadequate email. I’ll post it a bit later, for the lulz.

via TweetDeck

@10comm I wrote abut that kind of give-away-your-users-data hypocrisy at @technologyspec a short while back. arseh.at/72t

via TweetDeck in reply to 10comm

@10comm Oh. As it happens I do have Google Analytics on the site. I rarely look at it. Seems a likely candidate for deletion, that.

via TweetDeck in reply to 10comm

@GeorgeReese Sorry, Sir, it is not an “honest mistake” to set up an ignorant process that starts off by telling someone their name is wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to GeorgeReese

Dear Mistress Insomnia, thank you, but my alarm wasn’t due for another hour or so. Nevertheless, here we are.
