Turning off all the things.

via TweetDeck

Well this is all quite complicated.

via TweetDeck

@ireckon No, y’see the joy is that if you kill ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE then no-one’s left to mind the mess.

via TweetDeck in reply to ireckon

@ireckon One could try to educate them, I suppose… But rat poison in their Froot Loops would be more efficient all round, I’d suggest.

via TweetDeck in reply to ireckon

@cward1e I’m shuttling between Blue Mountains and Sydney semi-randomly until 26/2, prob in Sydney 15/2 to 19/2 in a block. We’ll sort it.

via TweetDeck in reply to cward1e

@ibbers I would never burn down the only pub in the village, probably.

via TweetDeck in reply to Prohairetic

Bunjaree Regained.

via TweetDeck

This pub has outlived its usefulness.

via TweetDeck

Finally catching up with @charltonbrooker’s dismantling of the Daily Mail. Joy. arseh.at/sfm

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m not sure what category I fit into.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus So, that’d be Twitter, LLC and licensed tax agent?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The old barman has just handed to me my good monitoring earbuds, which I’d left here last week some time. I thought that’d happen.

via TweetDeck

@ZebeeJ Whiskey would be ambitious for me tonight. But here’s a bit of nostalgia for you, young lady! arseh.at/sfi

via TweetDeck in reply to ZebeeJ

NEWSFLASH! After 66 months, my Script Challenge has finally been solved! arseh.at/sfi Amateur pseudo-cryptography FTL.

via TweetDeck

Sorry, folks, I was concentrating on my steak rather than Twitter. I do not consider this to be an error.

via TweetDeck

@joshgnosis @NewtonMark I’m guessing the argument was that the user requested a series of very short personal recordings?

via TweetDeck

@jplonie @NewtonMark Hah! Formats are “one each for PCs, Apple, Android, and 3G devices”, says the Decision.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark “Optus’ equipment records that program individually for each user in four different formats”, it says. arseh.at/sff

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@KeithConlon Hah! I reckon I ockered it up on @702sydney today ‘cos I was talking sport. arseh.at/sf7

via TweetDeck in reply to KeithConlon

According to a popular theory, this Coopers Ale will significantly improve my health.

via TweetDeck

RT @jonoabroad: COMMUNISM! [Yeah that’d be fuckin’ right! Well I might have to summon an autocab and hear to the pub for a decent feed.]

via TweetDeck

How can it possibly be 1830 already?

via TweetDeck

RT @cbkyeoh: I doubt you’ll find a telephone around that doesn’t require electricity! [Now you’re just being fussy!]

via TweetDeck

Oh. Apparently electronic telephones require electricity. Who knew?

via TweetDeck

Being all procedural and sensate. Failing.

via TweetDeck

I’m so glad I’m not involved with all those mouthbreathers.

via TweetDeck

@cward1e Ooh! OoH! Ooh Miss Wardle! How long are you going to be in Sydney for? I wasn’t planning ti come down until Saturday, but…

via TweetDeck in reply to cward1e

@6564828 Well I’m glad something’s going to be good for my skin. Neither the wine nor my diet seems to help.

via TweetDeck in reply to timfdavis

@jonoabroad Larry should ask first. Larry must be a rude man.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

You know, if I end up having to live inside this cloud up here for a second week in a row I shall get quite stabby.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus You can pass judgement on my relative ockerness now.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

New blog post: “Talking major sports’ future on ABC 702 Sydney”, with today’s audio. arseh.at/sf7

via TweetDeck

@joshrowe Yeah the robot helicopter bit came from seeing this video of autonomous copter swarms the other day. youtu.be/YQIMGV5vtd4

via TweetDeck in reply to joshrowe

Yes, @sylmobile @purserj @smperris, it was commissioned by @smh’s opinion pages, not the technology section.

via TweetDeck

Wow so many compliments for my @smh piece about the Optus TV Now decision and the future of sport TV. arseh.at/sep Thanks, all.

via TweetDeck

I should stop talking to these guys, they scare the shit out of me.

via TweetDeck

So that was a great 40-minute chat with an infosec engineering director that left me filled with confidence in the world no not really.

via TweetDeck

I am now quite dissatisfied with this planet, @bernietb @jeamland.

via TweetDeck

So, they couldn’t email me the PowerPoint, only show it to me, ‘cos it’s still under embargo. But emailing a PDF of it is fine. WTF?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Surely I’ll need a sheep or a goat for that. Fruit wasn’t enough, apparently, and that bloke was cast out.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I desire certain fruit which are not conveniently at hand. This is bothersome.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I choose not to Believe this particular Vision. I require a different, better Vision.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

My dongle performance is quite satisfactory, thanks @valeriekhoo. Nice of you to ask.

via TweetDeck

Sorry, why are we asking people to wallow in other people’s misery from three years ago?

via TweetDeck

I have stopped being presented to. It felt like their was a craving for me to Believe in the Vision. Corporations are creepy.

via TweetDeck

@GreenJ Well, the entirety of “social media influence” is bullshit layered on more bullshit. arseh.at/odu

via TweetDeck in reply to GreenJ

“Rubber-band bundling.” I have leaned a new term of derision.

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar Well they’re at the other end of an audio link. They can’t see that I’m not wearing pants.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

Being presented to.

via TweetDeck

Slides also mean they’ll read at me instead of a conversation, @SnarkyPlatypus @youngnick. It sounds shit in podcasts.

via TweetDeck

Successfully avoided my 1100 briefing appointment show me a goddam slide deck through webinar software. Let’s just TALK, FFS.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Ockerness is a spectrum, when it comes to accent anyway. @KeithConlon taught me that in, um, the past somewhere.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

And that’s the radio spot with ABC @702sydney done. (Did I sound more ocker ‘cos I was talking sport?) I’ll blog the audio later today.

via TweetDeck

The wireless begins…

via TweetDeck

I’m on ABC @702sydney in 10 mins talking about my @smh piece on sports streaming. arseh.at/sep Listen at arseh.at/qbh

via TweetDeck

@peterlevy Ah, there needs to be SOME sense of mystery. ;) Besides, I didn’t claim it as my own.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterlevy

@TV_Rev @omarky @mumbrella Thanks very much. I’ve gotten so many compliments about that @smh piece that I’m not quite coping.

via TweetDeck

So I see that @BernardKeane is helping the internets on Safer Internet Day. He’s helping helpfully, in fact.

via TweetDeck

New from Aust Institute of Criminology: “Computer security threats to small business in Australia” arseh.at/set

via TweetDeck

Thanks for all the feedback on my @smh piece, @JohnDobbin @JennaPrice @GumbyRoffo and all, it does seem to have struck a chord.

via TweetDeck

Sport is not my thing, @bryanlivett, so MLB TV wasn’t on my radar. But it’s a logical thing to do. And thanks for the feedback.

via TweetDeck

“Foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”

via TweetDeck

Hackers “Hac’Kings” take out Sydney International Regatta Centre website, for some reason. arseh.at/ser HT @nphair

via TweetDeck

@vanderaj Hmmm. That sounds a bit hand-wavey to me. If AFL gets $150m for simply streaming to mobile phones the numbers aren’t out of whack.

via TweetDeck in reply to vanderaj

@vanderaj In what sense are sports [generic term?] subsidised by “everyone else”? Any more than smokers’ healthcare is?

via TweetDeck in reply to vanderaj

So, my aim between now and 1005 is to become capable of pretending to know something about the economics of sports broadcasting.

via TweetDeck

So I’ll be on ABC @702sydney at 1005 AEDT talking with @LindaMottram re my @smh piece. arseh.at/sep Listen at arseh.at/qbh

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn I think one segment is the same as one I was considering two weeks ago. The “People of Prahran” bit.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

It would be much nicer if the news reported what has happened and what is happening rather than just repeating people’s guesses.

via TweetDeck

RT @LindaMottram: But its still Monday in Casablanca and Reykjavic and the US. [So nowhere important then.]

via TweetDeck

@BundyB Still, as far as everyday superpowers go that’s not a bad one.

via TweetDeck in reply to BundyB

@BundyB Ah yes, well, I acknowledge your superiour knowledge of the future. I am but a child in that regard.

via TweetDeck in reply to BundyB

And look! “The 9pm Edict” episode 17A is here. bit.ly/wJFA5l

via TweetDeck

RT: Me at @smh: “Sport has to think outside the box”, on Optus TV Now ruling. bit.ly/zmVgLe

via TweetDeck

Actually, I’ll skip videoing the sunrise today, as we seem to be cloudbound up here. A slower start to the day will now ensue.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: Video sunrise; minor client webby work; 1100, 1300 phone briefings; a little planning; shopping; easy day; early night, finally.

via TweetDeck

@smperris Thank you. That was my morning’s work yesterday, plus some good editing by @joelgibson. Good editors really help.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@LindaMottram Sorry, Linda, but we must all face this reality. However painful that might be.

via TweetDeck in reply to LindaMottram

@unpronounceable Sadly, there are limits even to my powers.

via TweetDeck in reply to unpronounceable

I think that I shall now declare it to be Tuesday.

via TweetDeck

@socialmediaclub Good. ‘Cos every now and then it becomes necessary to launch a guerrilla campaign against bullshit insider jargon. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to socialmediaclub

@socialmediaclub So what happens if the journalists are already married? Can you just, like, talk to them? Or do you need a motel room?

via TweetDeck in reply to socialmediaclub

I suppose it is. And I suppose it could be considered to be confusing.

via TweetDeck

So, um, look! “The 9pm Edict” episode 17A! That’s a podcast, kinda. bit.ly/wJFA5l

via TweetDeck

MT @mukimu: … I slept like a baby afterwards. [So, crying, and lying in your own accumulated feces?]

via TweetDeck

So, the really stupid fact is that I’m still editing audio. But I’ve nearly finished. Mostly.

via TweetDeck

@nehadk You’re quite right.I suspect only other writers and the desperate pay attention to bylines.

via TweetDeck in reply to nehadk

Returning to my audio editing, a little more inspired. Whatever happens, I will post this damn thing tonight.

via TweetDeck

@scottlarocca Oh yes, I write my own tweets (who else would accept blame?) but just quoting the headline. Too lazy to reword at this hour.

via TweetDeck in reply to scottlarocca

@nehadk Thank you. But, @scottlarocca, remember that the writers don’t do the headlines. ;)

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I can see low-cost productions using vision-switch-in-cloud services like Livestream. We shall talk further on this soon.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@funkycoda @nanopunk @rickeyre Thank you. The Conroy line I thought of Sunday. “Oh, he’ll let the courts do their work? Lovely.”

via TweetDeck

@nanopunk That’s my second for @smh, with both essentially coming from their commissions. I should perhaps pitch to them too.

via TweetDeck in reply to PitcherJenna

Thank you, @SnarkyPlatypus @D_Keating. That article came out of @joelgibson’s suggestions over the weekend and then being let loose.

via TweetDeck

@swearyanthony I’ll have you know this is my second op-ed for @smh.

via TweetDeck in reply to swearyanthony

Me at @smh: “Sport has to think outside the box”, on Optus TV Now ruling. bit.ly/Aadtyf

via TweetDeck

But is the pumpkinism operating correctly?
