Stand by while I burn a few tweets re-plugging a few things that I plugged earlier when you probably weren’t paying attention. Ready?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @kcarruthers: It is always reassuring to hear the opinions of an expert! [And if you ever find one, not a snake-oil job, do let us know.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

Pro tip: Always add an exclamation mark to your messages complimenting friends. It gives the impression you actually give a shit.

via Janetter for Mac

WTF is this even about? Someone gets paid to print this? yfrog.com/octl3fnlj /cc @bleeters @chrisjm

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisjrn Well as long as newspapers are continuing their historical role of printing what was on the internet yesterday… /cc @bleeters

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

So apparently I should watch @abc730 tonight, is that what you’re all saying?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: @stilgherrian Are you advertising for a sugar daddy or something? [A sugar daddy for ME? One step short of death, he’d be.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@ataraxite (It is left as an exercise to the reader to determine which category I occupy.)

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite Up here it’s either rainbow-crystal-dolphin New Age arsehattery or serious tinfoil-hat bad-acid-trip paranoia.

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently I need someone to buy me an iPhone.

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite Clearly you need to see today’s best tweet ever. twitter.com/#!/AzraellaRap…

“ABC joins Wikimedia in sharing historic footage” blog.wikimedia.org/2012/03/25/abc… Nice work, @abcmarkscott

via Janetter for Mac

RT @en_gy: Are you keeping the top or bottom? [Erm, I’m from Adelaide. All dismembered parts are just buried.] /cc @chrisjrn

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisjrn @en_gy This is how I prepare for a serious interview on cyberwar with one of the world’s leading experts. You’re welcome.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

My 1900 interview has just been rescheduled to 1930. So we can both be better prepared.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll respond properly to comments about cyberwar later. I interview @RidT is less than 20 mins and I’m feeling most inadequate.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ApostrophePong: My new orange stone-washed pants strike the office today. [You are just full of wrong. What’s the Thai for “hipster”?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Phase shift. Preparing for my 1900 interview with the author of this article about cyberwar being way overhyped. foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/…

RT @thetowncrier: I need a screwdriver. Does anyone deliver screwdrivers? [You have to get vodka and orange juice delivered separately.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to thetowncrier

Congratulations to everyone suggesting new ways to share and discover new ways to share and discover. You are all special snowflakes.

ACMA media conf 0930 tomorrow re findings on Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O and “comments aired … regarding a female journalist”.

Australia launches new Defence comms satellite from Kazakhstan. minister.defence.gov.au/2012/03/26/min… @TurnbullMalcolm says it’d be cheaper to rent.

via Janetter for Mac

Is it Friday yet? Hang on. I asked that already. AND BETWEEN YOU ALL YOU BASTARDS DIDN’T BLOODY WELL KNOW!

via Janetter for Mac

Christ, if I see another start-up offering “a new way to share and discover” ANY fucking thing I will firebomb the founders’ homes! Twice.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Website That Popped Up Shit In Front Of What I Was Reading, I reflexively closed the ill-mannered interruption without looking at it.

via Janetter for Mac

@jonoabroad Indeed. And if you’ve never spoken to the person before, you have to introduce yourself and why you’d like to speak. Unpossible.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@wordsonaplatfrm What someone else does with their own name is their business, not mine.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wordsonaplatfrm

This hour’s hatred: people with voicemail that’s speech-to-SMS and lasts just 10 seconds. WTF is wrong with you people?

via Janetter for Mac

So, you know how I said “wet dream” before? Yeah. Spambots. Of a different kind to the iDevice-following ones.

via Janetter for Mac

@Antipaganda That’ll have to wait until another day, alas. Things have just unexpectedly gone a tad hectic for me this afternoon. :/

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Antipaganda

I suspect I’m going to get very, very cranky within minutes.

via Janetter for Mac

@Antipaganda There was no indication that my in-tweet list was intended to set out the entire policy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Antipaganda

My web browser history is a pyschiatrist’s wet dream.

via Janetter for Mac

I will respond gradual to your tweets through the rest of afternoon in parallel with the rest of the stuff flooding in. It’s gone all weird.

via Janetter for Mac

“Is the Lulz Boat well and truly sunk?” asks @mukimu zdnet.com.au/is-the-lulz-bo…

via Janetter for Mac

Noting once again that I’ve been saved by an editor. A pox upon any media organisation that thinks they can do without them.

via Janetter for Mac

As a complete aside, my brain just exploded.

via Janetter for Mac

New “Patch Monday” podcast: “Your word is your log-in, literally” zdnet.com.au/your-word-is-y…

Win: Can dump errands from today’s plan. Less win: Still plenty to do. After a coffee, and a little sarcasm.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @imtimhanlon: @stilgherrian If TweetDeck had a checkbox for “filter all tweets containing a hashtag” I’d use it. [Very wise, Sir.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timhnln

Well, this late lunch break is certainly improving my mood. Or maybe it’s just this human species thing.

via Janetter for Mac

No, actually, I DON’T think everyone should have the right to marry. Brother and sister, for instance. Father and daughter.

via Janetter for Mac

Once, Dear Media, just once I’d like to see “lie detector” with a verb other than “strapped”. “Champagne” with other that “sipped”.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh yeah. That’s right, it’s Monday. [Starts adding hashtag filters into the new Twitter client.]

via Janetter for Mac

Seriously, EVERYONE needs to watch and understand the video in my immediately previous (re-)tweet. THIS IS YOUR FUTURE, PEOPLE!

Yes of COURSE this is the man we want running the World Bank! youtube.com/watch?v=-DIMT-… HT to a SEKRIT mole.

via Janetter for Mac

@NomDuJour Indeed, though I reckon the Dunning–Kruger effect is quite party- and policy-neutral.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheDapperPanda

Swallowing the wrong kind of pills.

via Janetter for Mac

@engochick @dobes @purserj Can we take this conversation private? I’m getting a little… excited.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to engochick

@McDermie Indeed, but in his defence tech journos are overall a remarkably uncritical bunch when it comes to considering industry ethics.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to McDermie

Taking the phrase “correlation is not causion” and hitting every politician and commentator with it, repeatedly.

via Janetter for Mac

@McDermie I agree with the entire thrust of your comments. The IT industry continually avoids responsibility for its deep flaws

via Janetter for Mac in reply to McDermie

@McDermie Art Coviello certainly had a bit of the ol’ “it’s the journalists’ job to help business deliver its message”, didn’t he!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to McDermie

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Joe Hockey is the Whore of Babylon, obviously. [Oi! He should bloody well wait his turn!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Doing business with a company that has “crazy” in its name, @dizzystuff? Why would you even do that?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dizzystuff

If homeopathy has taught us anything, it’s that washing your hands after going to the toilet is the last thing you should consider.

@mukimu You seem to have ruled out the possibility that both are true?

@bullokie @MylesPeterson A related note, you may enjoy my “Literature? What’s that got to do with the price of books?” crikey.com.au/2009/07/21/lit…

MT @dobes: @engochick [is] going for the NSW police uniform as we speak. [Just so you know, I have a more Germanic family background…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. @engochick can put away the cattle prod now. Unless she’s interested in that little game…

via Janetter for Mac

@bullokie @MylesPeterson Well, editing still has to be paid for somewhere, but that’d only be a fraction of the old paper-based cost.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zaploi

@bullokie @MylesPeterson I’m with you on scientific journal. The authors and reviewers usually have salaries to cover being researchers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zaploi

@bullokie @MylesPeterson I was under the impression we were now speaking more generally?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zaploi

@MylesPeterson I’m certainly no fan of outdated, inefficient distribution systems. Don’t mistake for one of their apologists.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MylesPeterson

@MylesPeterson Distribution costs are trending to zero, production costs are not. If those are not bundled into distribution, then what?

via Janetter for Mac

@MylesPeterson It’s particularly insulting for you to assume that I can’t look at an issue from anyone’s viewpoint but my own, but…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MylesPeterson

@MylesPeterson But I suppose if I wave my Magic Revolution Wand™ then overnight everything will be a new model that is new.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MylesPeterson

@MylesPeterson Yes, and $0 x infinity does not provide me (or anyone) with a way of paying the rent. I’m not a fan of unrealistic sloganry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MylesPeterson

@MylesPeterson It’s still the reference, even if you have to pay for it. Just like quoting from a book costing $, citing author and title.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MylesPeterson

I’d have thoughts links weren’t “recommendations” but references to source material, @MylesPeterson /cc @ABCthedrum @australian

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MylesPeterson

What’s a “Polly Porter”? Is it important?

via Janetter for Mac

Recording of voiceovers done. rough cut done. Into the mixing stage, supported by various automated technologies.

via Janetter for Mac

Yes. Studio mode. Shoosh.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus So that means you get the sheets washed TWICE per shift?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OK, switching into studio mode. See you when I’m done.

via Janetter for Mac

The very word “transmedia” makes me want to slit people’s throats, @quietdiscourse @NomDuJour. Buzzword spouted by arsehats with no history.
