Who is that ranty old crank on the radio? Oh. Dick Smith.

RT @franksting: I feel like plugging a mouse.

RT @nanopunk: “violates the Google+ Community Standards or Names Policy” No clear reason [Google really is clueless about due process.]

via TweetDeck

Google continues its “suspend first, ask questions later, maybe, if ever” policy. arseh.at/l7a

I like “latte smearing”, but I’d have hyphenated it.

@R_Chirgwin I haven’t set fire to anything so far today, so it’s going well.

Mobile: Walk the dirt track and Railway Pde to Wentworth Falls; The Grand View Hotel for lunch; shopping; return.

“Australia’s cyber warfare warning” by @nphair arseh.at/l71

Oh you people are just grubby! @jeamland @dobes @expectproblems

It seems that Member for Bradfield @paulwfletcher has me over a barrel, so to speak. Details in Crikey’s lunchtime email.

This week’s @NBN_Buzz is a fine summary of the NBN price debate, not only ‘cos I’m quoted a bunch. arseh.at/l6y

@DokterW Yep, I’ve enjoyed it do much my shoulder is aching again. I should not be writing so much.

via TweetDeck in reply to DokterW

Indeed, @R_Chirgwin, I wrote a thing about organisations paying for their web development with our privacy. arseh.at/72t

via TweetDeck

@DokterW By and large, we’re on the same page, I think.

@DokterW “Why do you hate Freedom?”, eh? ;) Democracy’s more subtle than a dictatorship of the 51%, I’d have thought.

via TweetDeck in reply to DokterW

I’m quite worried, @DokterW, when government uses Facebook, allowing them to track us citizens in ways government wouldn’t be allowed.

via TweetDeck

@DokterW Oh yes. I have a stock phrase. “I think I’d like to know more, but I can do so without having to tell my life to Facebook?”

via TweetDeck in reply to DokterW

@DokterW Usage stats don’t show whether people “had an issue”, only whether they didn’t know or caved in or whatever.

via TweetDeck in reply to DokterW

@DokterW It’s generally OK to exclude minorities, then, as long as most people are happy? Not sure I like that…

via TweetDeck in reply to DokterW

@DokterW If your sporting team uses Google+ or Facebook to coordinate, say, it’s all or nothing. [Worded poorly, sorry.]

via TweetDeck in reply to DokterW

@DokterW I believe you’re seeing this as a purely commercial issue, “shop elsewhere”. But what about the social issues?

via TweetDeck in reply to DokterW

@DokterW Erm, you pay for Facebook with data-mining access to your personal life. And look how much they can make from it.

via TweetDeck in reply to DokterW

@GreensMPs Calling Bob Brown a doorstop, how rude!

via TweetDeck in reply to GreensMPs

RT @zdnetaustralia: RIM sitting on 800,000 PlayBooks: report bit.ly/nVua6D [Well, RIM can’t afford chairs any more.]

via TweetDeck

@nanopunk Oh I gave up wading through all the shit. It’s bad enough Google’s tonguing that tech-co-slut will.i.am anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to PitcherJenna

@nanopunk It would seem Vic Gundotra stopped deleting comments when he was called out on it. He really is a piece of work.

via TweetDeck in reply to PitcherJenna

@wraptinweb I think it’s easy to believe, actually. I’ve explained what would’ve happened until now.

via TweetDeck in reply to wraptinweb

Google’s Hypocrite in Chief Vic Gundotra welcomes G+profile of “will.i.am .”, deletes complaints. Prick. arseh.at/l6v

Thu plan: Tidy “desk”, email, task list to remove crises; tidy house; Wentworth Falls for late lunch, errands, beer #1; remainder TBA.

RT @caseyjohnellis: lol at how they buried security in the features/benefits list… [Yeah, I’ll ask them about that.]

via TweetDeck

RT @jplonie: But you know the security issue they are fixing is the previous one. [Orly? I’ll admit I’ve lost track. Ta.]

New blog post: “Adobe Flash and the very definition of irony”. Still laughing. arseh.at/l6s /cc @LiamT

Waiting for the codeine to work.

“A faster, simpler alternative might have been to hold his head down a toilet till the kicking stopped.” arseh.at/l6l

via TweetDeck

Problem is, most news sites haven’t learned the basic lesson of commenter communities. arseh.at/l6r /cc @akent @ozdj @PeteDotAscian

via TweetDeck

Another slow start, thanks to continuing but slowly improving shoulder pain. Pondering how much work to commit to today.

via TweetDeck

+100 RT @akent: I’m thinking some kind of browser extension to hide the comments — “67 stupid people said something dumb about this”

via TweetDeck

Honestly, news sites don’t need a whole commenting system, just a button marked “Yes, I am stupid” that people can press repeatedly.

via TweetDeck

Fursday. You can rub my tummy.
