@jared_reed Sure, done here, where’s NewsRadio hang out?

via TweetDeck in reply to jared_reed

And the radio is done. I’ll return to understanding the universe shortly.

via TweetDeck

Here we go… Two minutes to air, and yiou can listen to the @702sydney stream at arseh.at/qbh

via TweetDeck

t the ABC, almost ready for the wireless.

via TweetDeck

Oh, to get the stream live, just use @702sydney’s at arseh.at/qbh … /cc @richardtuffin

via TweetDeck

Well, I should get my act together and amble over to the ABC at Ultimo. On ABC Local Radio from 2200 local times, streams all over.

via TweetDeck

Thanks for all those examples, @R_Chirgwin @piecritic @miss_shiny and yes, @zackster, the money’s in the touring and merch.

via TweetDeck

Anyone got some great examples of musicians or novelists making a good living by cutting out the middle man?

via TweetDeck

@bubbiting Yep, copyright infringement is not theft. arseh.at/snw though, is that meme done? Not for this audience I guess.

via TweetDeck

@deejayqf Brain explosions are all too well understood. No blame.

via TweetDeck in reply to deejayqf

New blog post, very late: “Weekly Wrap 88: Mist, media and the joys of Optus” arseh.at/snv

via TweetDeck

@deejayqf Ah yes, the secret meetings. Not sure where Syria fits into copyright? ACTA, yes. Thanks.

via TweetDeck in reply to deejayqf

I’m thinking we’ll end up talking SOPA/PIPA, Optus v sport, BitTorrent Live, iiTrial, three-strikes, CC… what else?

via TweetDeck

Refreshing my memory of the history of copyright law before my 2200 spot on ABC Local Radio.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Nah, today’s earworm for you is “We’re happy little Vegemites as bright as bright can be.”

via TweetDeck

@bsymonsb Little factoids like that show how tiny the industry is in Australia.

via TweetDeck in reply to SymonsBrown

@R_Chirgwin Knowledge of my movements now exists in your brain.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

This @jonkudelka cartoon truly captures the erotic appeal of @TonyAbbottMHR arseh.at/sno

via TweetDeck

@johnthelutheran I know what a flume is, and I have heard them played more tunefully. I didn’t last a whole minute though.

via TweetDeck in reply to johnthelutheran

@katie18O Oh, you tell me! I think I identified the train fairly comprehensively.

via TweetDeck in reply to katie18O

You’d be surprised.

via TweetDeck

Which is free hand job day at C Bar?

via TweetDeck

Loose for 3.5 hours.

via TweetDeck

You can make it fit in the luggage rack if you chop it in half. That strategy is always affective.

via TweetDeck

Departed Strathfield. Arriving at Central in 12 minutes. Planning my escape now.

via TweetDeck

@engochick I bet if I went through her backpack I’d find that it was full of shit that no-one needs anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

RT @nanopunk: @lukehopewell Here, have a picture of a depressed horse dressed as Batman bit.ly/izagWR [See, you’re considerate too!]

via TweetDeck

@engochick Bah! They’re usable for backpacks if you’re POLITE and CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS like I am!

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

@engochick It still counts as “asking politely” if I’m helping mop up the blood, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

@engochick Perfectly normal Intercity V set. arseh.at/sng Luggage racks arseh.at/snh Vestibule arseh.at/sni

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

@engochick Possibly one extra seat for her soon-to-be-severed foot.

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

@engochick She needs two seats tops or, if she used the luggage racks and vestibule area, just the one for herself.

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

Oh dear. That backpacker occupying FOUR seats with her crap? Tattoo on her foot reads “Explore. Dream. Discover.” Clubbing her to death now.

via TweetDeck

@AbrasiveTeapot Dunno, the chain of url decodes just worked for me on a different client on a different device on a different network. Erf.

via TweetDeck in reply to AbrasiveTeapot

“Endless Belt Services Pty Ltd”? If I were feeling really pathetic I’d make a Chris Brown joke.

via TweetDeck

A teenage lad with a Razor scooter in the streets, sorry, street of Wentworth Falls just shouted “Ride the unicorn!”

via TweetDeck

@iain_chalmers So is Twitter scale bigger than web scale?

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

I have summoned the taximeter. ผมได้จองเครื่องวัดระยะคิดค่าโดยสาร. Watch out, Sydney, I’m on my way.

via TweetDeck

RT @lukehopewell: Narev: The Commonwealth Bank is Australia’s third largest taxpayer. [By weight or by girth?]

via TweetDeck

Gawd, yet ANOTHER media release from Senator Wong’s office about what Tony Abbott said! Why? Just, why? [baffled]

via TweetDeck

A cloud-based password-cracking service with an API? Sure, that will indeed help. cloudcracker.com

via TweetDeck

@CassPF Urgentish email now being investigated. Stand by.

via TweetDeck in reply to CassPF

Dear @firstdogonmoon I approve of these rituals. arseh.at/sn7

via TweetDeck

Whatever they’re smoking down at the @saasu offices today, sure, I’ll have some too.

via TweetDeck

It’s really quite amazing what can be done with a fresh bottle of canola oil and an onion.

via TweetDeck

RT @NewtonMark: NBN actually encapsulates the ALP’s woes in general: nobody quite understands what it’s for :) [That’s how to win friends.]

via TweetDeck

@paulwallbank @R_Chirgwin Ah, there’s so many things wrong with that, including a complete absence of chooks. It’s actually sunny now.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Battery is now full at 51.2V, so while there may be a thunderstorm later I propose NOT running the generator before I leave.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Pluggage and pimpage ends.

NICTA’s Techfest 2012 showcasing all their new technology on Thu 23 Feb. arseh.at/sn6

Recordkeeping Roundtable’s panel “Freedom of Information?” with others on Tue 21 Feb. arseh.at/smd

Communication Alliance’s Broadband and Beyond 2012 thingo on Wed 22 Feb. arseh.at/sn5

via TweetDeck

I’m talking copyright and the internets on ABC Local Radio nationally with Tony Delroy tonight from 2200 local time. So, so many streams.

via TweetDeck

It is time for some fair warnings about where I’ll be so you can avoid me over the coming few days. Stand by.

via TweetDeck

@AKFRU If dubsteb is a feature, it must be along the lines of “viral shedding is a feature of herpes infections”. /cc @mpesce

via TweetDeck in reply to AKFRU

@mpesce Fatal errors are something I can take care of. I mean, um, oh… too late now really…

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

RT @mpesce: Just installed BitTorrent live. It, um, works. But it’s playing Dubstep. [I’d file a fault report for that. Sounds serious.]

via TweetDeck

I think I just got a media release that said everyone at SBS is on ice, but I may need to double-check that.

via TweetDeck

@seamus @thebreg So, as I established last night, Lego is not like lesbians. [nods]

via TweetDeck in reply to seamus

[ponders to self] “Chronicle” must be a thing of some kind. If I nod politely and pretend to know, maybe I won’t be found out.

via TweetDeck

@seamus @thebreg Oh Larry Page? I mean, how could he possibly know? He just runs the company that compiles all the world’s… Oh.

via TweetDeck in reply to seamus

@thebreg I have no idea what you’re referring to, sorry. /cc @seamus

via TweetDeck in reply to thebreg

RT @seamus: What is it with Americans calling Lego ‘Legos’? Seriously! [Because it’s another country’s trademark so fuck ‘em.]

via TweetDeck

Here’s @charispalmer on “Qantas’ misguided Twitter tantrum” arseh.at/sn3

via TweetDeck

I should be kept well away from all the hashtags.

via TweetDeck

Jesus, the government could legislate to slaughter everyone’s firstborn next Tuesday, sure, but WHEN IS THE BILL BEING TABLED?

via TweetDeck

RT @PointZeroOne: @stilgherrian What are you talking about? [Why are you asking me? How the fuck should I know?]

via TweetDeck

I’m actually rather pleased with myself that I knew there was a League club called the Sharks. I even know they’re from Cronulla. Bonus.

via TweetDeck

RT @tweettomnow: Don’t turn off the video stream, someone may get shot in Granville. [Oh yeah. Sorry.]

via TweetDeck

Those of a weaker disposition (or just sick of me) will be pleased to know that I’ve turned off the video stream from Canberra.

via TweetDeck

If not, @MarkTobinSydney, then surely it’s as relevant as “the Nth drive-by shooting since the Sharks won a League premiership”?

via TweetDeck

So um, @MarkTobinSydney, how are drive-by shootings caused / related to the policies of Premier @barryofarrell? Have you isolated a factor?

via TweetDeck

via TweetDeck

@viocorp Is there some way of viewing the rest of your last tweet without going to Facebook?

via TweetDeck in reply to viocorp

Still working on that tricky ol’ “play a video” technology, eh Peak Body For IT In Australia? ;)

via TweetDeck

But I assume the intelligent, experienced public servants in the room are experienced at dealing with this manipulation.

via TweetDeck

Or, from the other end, where the presenter wants you to stop your critical thinking and accept the entire structure as a given.

via TweetDeck

I’m fascinated by the stock phrases used at these events. They highlight where critical thinking has ceased to be applied.

via TweetDeck

“Rock stars”! DRINK! (Have you ever actually thought about how well a world designed by rock stars would work?)

via TweetDeck

And by “power”, I don’t mean such routine surface bullshit gimmickry as being able to find your appointment time via an iPhone.

via TweetDeck

If we’re seeing a “fundamental shift of power to the people” [!] name one REAL power we now have that we didn’t before.

via TweetDeck

Vivek Kundra must be about to finish. He’s doing the “you’re so wonderful” closer so nothing but good-feel is remembered.

via TweetDeck

IT MUST BE GOOD BECAUSE THE MINISTER COULD LOOK AT IT ON AN IPAD!

via TweetDeck

Wow, I love the conflation of open government with cloud computing. Anyone spot how that segue was done? Glorious propaganda!

via TweetDeck

Innovation is not “driven” by anything, like you’d drive a herd of pigs with sticks. It’s nurtured and encouraged and drawn out.

via TweetDeck

Every time someone uses “drive” as a verb with “innovation”, @markabramowitz, a Corporate Cliché Fairy dies from exhaustion.

via TweetDeck

RT @gusworldau: I worry that the is going to cause @stilgherrian to explode. The mood in the actual room is calm. [Check water.]

via TweetDeck

“Darwinian pressures of the consumer web!” DRINK!

via TweetDeck

@awelder Oh indeed, the very core of this event is ensuring that “the government” signs up to The Strategy. “Alignment”, isn’t it called?

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

Shorter Vivek Kundra thus far: I decided to do X and it was very clever because Y. Repeat.

via TweetDeck

For those who feel the urge to swallow this rubbish directly, it’s at arseh.at/smy

via TweetDeck

OH IT’S GOT A DASHBOARD! A DASHBOARD WILL SOLVE EVERYTHING! MAKE IT LOOK LIKE A SPEEDOMETER AND ALL WILL BE SOLVED!

via TweetDeck

This much bullshit before 0930 can’t be healthy.

via TweetDeck

The mists are closing in around the house now. They Know.

via TweetDeck

Bugger. I’ve neglected to tag all those tweets which means the Kool-Aid drinkers in Canberra will have missed them.

via TweetDeck

And the speakers aren’t even going to get a bottle of wine? Well there’s a sign of bloody mind control right there!

via TweetDeck

FFS @TodayTonight forget Scientology! Get into this room (or is it a roadside tent?) in Canberra NOW! Find out WTF they’ve put in the water.

via TweetDeck

Who’s this woman saying that unless we cloud the cloud in the specific cloudy way she clouds it then Australia will remain in the Stone Age?

via TweetDeck

Did I see someone tweet that Senator Conroy is already saying that cloud IS the future? Then the battle has already been lost.

via TweetDeck

And once more “the SMEs” are people over there somewhere who us big-end types graciously let innovate with our new, profitable technology.

via TweetDeck

‘Clouds computing is the future” say the usual bunch of entrenched, besuited big-business interests who would benefit from it all.

via TweetDeck

FFS, if these people can’t even press play on a video and have it work, why is ANYONE listening to their views on technology AT ALL?

via TweetDeck

Australian Information Industry Association demonstrates once more that playing a video is too hard for industry “leaders”. PICK NEW ONES!

via TweetDeck

So, I mention A in a tweet and people ask why I didn’t mention B, C, X, K, Z, F, P and Q. FFS you can’t mention everything in everything!

via TweetDeck

After more than 5 years of ops, Twitter crows about SSL, first-step privacy protection tech, as a major achievement. arseh.at/smv

via TweetDeck

“Harness”. DRINK!

via TweetDeck

MT @AndrewRiddle36: Uniform defamation laws? Today Tonight could probably pay $250k settlement without going over budget for the episode.

via TweetDeck

Wow, @TodayTonight ran a straight-up “Scientology runs child labour camp in Sydney suburb” story. Bold. arseh.at/smu

via TweetDeck

Wed plan: Gentle plod-thru comms, planning, loose-end clearing; do something remarkable with two onions; train to Sydney; 2200 ABC Radio.

via TweetDeck

And lorikeets! Fifty of the rowdy fuckers! Even the rosellas think you are too goddam noisy.

via TweetDeck

Altogether far too many honeyeaters now. WILL YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP!

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad No photos, no. The black cockatoos usually don’t come that close to the house, and it was only for a moment.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@danilic My pleasure. I knew you’d appreciate the subtlety, or something.

via TweetDeck in reply to danilic

That and the pair of huge yellow-tailed black cockatoos that just quietly flew through the undergrowth and paused just 20m from the house.

via TweetDeck

Maybe this view from the bed will cheer me up a little. flic.kr/p/btHVgp

via TweetDeck

Wednesday is bullshit.
