RT @chrisjrn: It’s @stilgherrian, looking very much like @stilgherrian: flic.kr/p/bgc1Rz [It’s true.]

via TweetDeck

Noivilbo isn’t even a proper word, @jeamland.

via TweetDeck

This street is too long.

via TweetDeck

In a cab, escaping certain oblivion.

via TweetDeck

Oh, THAT’S why it doesn’t make sense. I’m in Melbourne.

via TweetDeck

This will end well.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Well Twitter is pretty much the internet as far as I’m concerned.”

via TweetDeck

@ForsakenDAemon Discrimination law is about quite specific things. “I don’t like you or what you do, I won’t do business” is fine otherwise.

via TweetDeck in reply to ForsakenDAemon

Me at @technologyspec, 13 Dec: “Time to drop the ‘e’,” or the ‘cyber’ for that matter. arseh.at/p7l /cc @jeamland

via TweetDeck

Trying to work out how a business choosing not to do business with someone is “outside the law”.

via TweetDeck

I just wish to point out that no-one searched me for firearms today.

via TweetDeck

@Melissa_Moyle I’ve got your mob on my pencilled list, and will sort this stuff out first thing Monday morning.

via TweetDeck in reply to Melissa_Moyle

So many people RTing a speaker turn their quotes into cartoon parodies trivial to refute. You work AGAINST your cause, arsehats!

via TweetDeck

It’s times like this I realise how few people are competent at paraphrasing someone while preserving nuance of meaning.

via TweetDeck

As a complete aside, I’m in Melbourne through until Tuesday evening, and my schedule is pretty much open from 1000 Monday.

via TweetDeck

@Asher_Wolf ALL numbers out of context are bullshit. Quoting “large numbers” without dividing by population is bullshit.

via TweetDeck in reply to Asher_Wolf

Alas I was moving as the figure was given, @Ucannot @LucasJamesAU @nekonoir, and Twitter stream has already Chinese Whisper’d the numbers.

via TweetDeck

Yes, surveillance is increasing. Countering government bullshit is good. But FFS don’t counter it with more innumerate bullshit.

via TweetDeck

65,000 surveillance ops, population 22.8M [national figure cited?] 0.29%. VASTLY more criminals than that. But, you know, arithmetic.

via TweetDeck

I do get depressed when law enforcement is ALWAYS portrayed as an automatic enemy. Are we forever to be 14yo rebels?

via TweetDeck

The hashtag for War on the Internet is and the stream has kinda started at arseh.at/qr6

via TweetDeck

@michaelmeloni I’ve got cargo pants on. My American Shooters t-shirt is in the wash, alas.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelmeloni

Heading to Trades Hall, Carlton, for “War on the Internet” forum at 1500. arseh.at/qq7 Stream arseh.at/qr6

via TweetDeck

RT @rbbrown: It hasnt been the Lunux conference since Welllington in 2010 [This is true. I am embarrassed.]

via TweetDeck

Episode 4 of @TechRepublic’s podcast now online! “Linux.conf.au 2012: Planes, sounds and freedom” arseh.at/qr5

via TweetDeck

Videos from sessions at Lunux.conf.au are starting to appear at arseh.at/qr4 and quality looks good.

via TweetDeck

Oh. South Yarra. That’s right.

via TweetDeck

Quick detour to South Yarra to check in, then to Trades Hall by 1500.

via TweetDeck

@R3mm3t I like your thinking. But as I say, it’s all uploaded. At 1500 I have to cover the War on the Internet forum. arseh.at/qq7

via TweetDeck in reply to R3mm3t

@R3mm3t Oh, it’s all already uploaded. I only needed a spot to sit while I used my own internets.

via TweetDeck in reply to R3mm3t

Oh. Arriving at Southern Cross station. I must now gather my things and find a spot from where to upload all the things.

via TweetDeck

OH: “A real bloke doesn’t stand a chance because there’s always just too many parasites working against him.”

via TweetDeck

Environmentalism. Business strategy. Constitutional law. Should I list the other fields in which his expertise is still unacknowledged?

via TweetDeck

Ah, good. He’s now complaining that a court didn’t accept his view that a certain tax breached the Australian Constitution.

via TweetDeck

The first chap is continuing on his theme. Apparently if they shot for 5 hours, they should have broadcast all 5 hours of footage.

via TweetDeck

OH, other guy: “The problem is they have no idea how to run a business.” Or, presumably, do heart surgery or square a circle.

via TweetDeck

OH: “I’ve been on Channel 7. ‘Today Tonight’. They sent a film crew. They took 4 or 5 hours to film but it was cut down to 8 minutes.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “Don’t talk to me about Greens, they’re a pack of crooks.”

via TweetDeck

Pro tip: When travelling by train, it is important to loudly detail every inconvenience in your life to the passengers sitting nearby.

via TweetDeck

@digitalkulcha I would never fake the ambient sound. Thin end of a wedge that puts you on the slipper slope down a dangerous path.

via TweetDeck in reply to digitalkulcha

Awwww… I grabbed a Carlton Draught here at Ballarat station, but just saw they have casks of Coolabah Soft Fruity White.

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus What a random collection of music artists. At a medieval theme park. [Glorious, isn’t it! And yes, good sitcom ep.]

via TweetDeck

Apparently I’m tweeting in a New Zealand accent now.

via TweetDeck

INXS, Vanessa Amorosi and James Reyne are playing Kryal Castle tonight. Thus us why they invented the ballista.

via TweetDeck

Thanks, @kelisha, you too. To everyone at , sorry I couldn’t spend as much time with you as I’d have liked. Great event.

via TweetDeck

RT @mrgrumpystephen: @stilgherrian You’re talking about me right? [Yes.]

via TweetDeck

Have you noticed how some of the people on the internet are paranoid psychotics?

via TweetDeck

Backing up data. Yep, 3.2GB of new data since my last backup at 0630. Welcome to the joys of media production.

via TweetDeck

So, the majority of the final podcast editing is done. Pack, check out, cab to railway station, and yes get ready to record SFX.

via TweetDeck

Oh bugger. The only train to Melbourne before the 1131 is the 1012, and I don’t quite have time to get to the station to record that.

via TweetDeck

@bleeters Nope, still at the motel. I’m planning to catch to 1131, but record an earlier train to get the SFX.

via TweetDeck in reply to bleeters

Hmmm. The first podcast started with magpies calling in the early. Perhaps the last one should end with the sound of my train leaving.

via TweetDeck

Back to the podcast editing. Identifying which 20 minutes or so of@ioerror’s 1.5-hour presentation I’ll include.

via TweetDeck

“I AM NOT AN ANIMAL! I AM A HUMAN PASSENGER TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT!”

via TweetDeck

I stand corrected. Wikipedia tells me “the largest wide-bodied aircraft” are called “jumbo jets”. But, WIN, it’s still rather infantile.

via TweetDeck

Acording to whichever TV news they’re playing on WIN, an Airbus A380 is a “Jumbo”. In other news, Sydney Swans is a women’s netball team.

via TweetDeck

Breaking from Linux.conf.au podcast production for breakfast. Scroll back for linkage to stuff I posted in the last 24 hours.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark I should’ve asked you to pick me up on the way through. YBLT to YMMB.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

RT @NewtonMark: Ballarat’s ICAO code sounds like a question about a sandwich. “YBLT. Because bacon.”

via TweetDeck

Whew! That’s all the repimpage of yesterday’s work. Now diving into today’s work. New Linux.conf.au podcast in about 4 or 5 hours.

via TweetDeck

RT: Also at @zdnetaustralia: “No SOPA for Australia: AG” with @SenatorLudlam comments too. arseh.at/qpz

via TweetDeck

RT: Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Aus becoming surveillance state: Ludlam” arseh.at/qpy

via TweetDeck

Actually, the Linux.conf.au podcast cross-post at @zdnetaustralia has comments a’gathering. arseh.at/qq9

via TweetDeck

RT: Episode 3 of @TechRepublic’s podcast now online! “Linux.conf.au 2012: cyborg lawyer demands source” arseh.at/qq8

via TweetDeck

Sat plan: Final Linux.conf.au podcast; train Ballarat-Melbourne; 1500 War on the Internet forum arseh.at/qq7; drinks and dinner.

via TweetDeck

And so this is Saturday. With magpies. And a very, very blurry start to proceedings.

via TweetDeck

I will now collapse, ‘cos I have a podcast to do in the morning, and other stuff, and still get to Melbourne by lunchtime. Yeah, good plan.

via TweetDeck

@mattcdef2000 Oh, I meant my immediately preceding tweet, but it was a @reply to @SenatorLudlam so you may not see it in your timeline.

via TweetDeck in reply to mattcdef2000

I’m still staring at that statement and am gobsmacked by the arrogance and sheer contempt for the citizenry it implies.

via TweetDeck

@SenatorLudlam “…with the government saying that it is too early in the discussions for consumers to be involved.” Says it all.

via TweetDeck in reply to SenatorLudlam

@SenatorLudlam I was going to pay you out for still being awake but realised your body clock is probably still on AWST?

via TweetDeck in reply to SenatorLudlam

@SenatorLudlam Mind you, Sen Conroy has always said that it’d be better for copyright-holders and internet industry to sort it out.

via TweetDeck in reply to SenatorLudlam

@SenatorLudlam @zdnetaustralia It’s a curious response. “Not currently considering” is of course meaningless. @engochick had to prod.

via TweetDeck in reply to SenatorLudlam

@SnarkyPlatypus Sadly the existence of the RI was just a reminder that I should’ve been paying attention about four hours ago.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

So, just to make it clear, “Ball a rat” is not some late-night rodent-oriented recommendation for enjoyment.

via TweetDeck

I am in Ballarat, @SnarkyPlatypus. It’s midnight. Why would I be making ravioli? Also, RI in the bar was quite acceptable.

via TweetDeck

Also at @zdnetaustralia: “No SOPA for Australia: AG” with @SenatorLudlam comments too. arseh.at/qpz
