This is going to go all night, isn’t it. Could someone please send some SERIOUSLY HEAVY DUTY DRUGS to the Blue Mountains please.

@R_Chirgwin What’s wrong with Gareth Evans?

Bah, @mpesce @sylmobile, if you can’t program one of these (yes, in assembler) then you’re a blow-in try-hard. arseh.at/st1

I’m not helping really, am i?

For SBS, same as what I just said for the ABC but replace Coldplay with a video loop of a Czech geriatric fucking a wheelbarrow.

via TweetDeck

How to save costs at the ABC: Put the 90 sec of actual news on a loop in between tracks from a Coldplay album.

RT @jeamland: A tennis racket? [Shut up.]

via TweetDeck

Oh, you want to make LOTS OF MONEY from playing a game? No. Fuck. Off. Get a real job. /cc @joshgnosis @trib

Note to Tennis Australia: Folks could play tennis, or sit and watch it, without you existing whatsoever. /cc @joshgnosis @trib

via TweetDeck

@joshgnosis @trib This is the hypocrisy. Big Sport is just a media spectacle for money, yet wraps itself in “for the kiddies” rhetoric.

Ah, @johnemcintyre dismantles Clark Elder Morrow. Short version: Morrow is an arsehat. arseh.at/ssw

via TweetDeck

@timehhh Oh you are delightfully diplomatic there, Sir!

via TweetDeck in reply to timehhh

@timehhh [nods] There seems to be a disconnect there. On-demand access, smart people, yet still arguing against virtual PVRs?

RT @nigelcameron: FB’s and policies. Look kinda random to me, a sophomore media studies project. tgr.ph/xN0K7V

@TatteredRemnant Ah, alas I couldn’t make it down to Sydney today. Whatever I ate yesterday was doing… colourful things overnight.

via TweetDeck in reply to TatteredRemnant

RT @akent: How does one even overhear something via email? [Er, shoosh, you.]

via TweetDeck

OH, via email: “I will do my best to drink at a moderate pace… (how does one even do that?)”

@mpesce “Parody”, you say? Parody? Check Facebook’s rule on Photoshopped images… :)

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

Given the length of time Facebook has been operating and the problems they’ve faced these “content guidelines” seem a tad amateur.

via TweetDeck

And it’s up to users to demonstrate what they’re doing is clearly not promoting Hitler’s actions, rather than Facebook proving a violation.

via TweetDeck

Facebook’s lame-arsed anti-free-speech content guidelines say a photo of Hitler is “hate speech”. arseh.at/ssr

If you enjoyed my @smh piece on surveillance society arseh.at/ssf here’s links to sources etc. arseh.at/ssq

@joshgnosis @Telstra That was meant to be deep, not derp, but in hindsight…

via TweetDeck

@joshgnosis I’m assuming @Telstra’s customer authentication is so derp in systems / scripts that it’d be hell to change from DOB.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

Thanks for comments on my @smh “You are what you surf, buy or tweet” arseh.at/ssf Scroll back for links to sources.

via TweetDeck

I’ll also catch up on @replies and stuff during the afternoon. Some of them, anyway.

via TweetDeck

I’ll be in Sydney on Friday, should anyone need to have a meeting with me that day.

via TweetDeck

Mobile. To Leura for lunch today, some email catch-up, planning and shopping, before returning to the cottages.

via TweetDeck

@joshgnosis Yes, date of birth as “security”. Works for everybody who’s never had a birthday party ever. @Telstra as such arsehats.

@zdnetaustralia So who was covering the Sydney public transport ticketing thing and which would be the best summary story of “Why?”

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad Yes, as I understand it failure it deliver something that understood the mess. Hardware was all to be off the shelf stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad @maxcelcat Sydney has three separate govt agencies plus private ones. The mistake was to not integrate pricing first.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad @maxcelcat The problem with Sydney’s ticketing is not the hardware but failed agreement on how the money flows…
