@NewtonMark @LiamT I’m still back laughing at the “asleep at the switch” comment. Cruel.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

This is the software NBNCo used to plan the rollout, apparently. biarri.com/tools_fiber_op…

via Janetter for Mac

@NewtonMark @LiamT Well, Liam’s been following this one. But it does seem to be all-ISC. Then again, ACMA liaises with our ISPs. [shrug]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@corduroy @decryption Thank you. I don’t think I explained the Coalition’s plan well, but then my job was to explain today’s announcement.

New blog post: “Talking NBN rollout on ABC Local Radio”: audio of tonight’s chat with @domknight. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

@corduroy Awww… Please wait at least 30 minutes before misrepresenting me. Or is that swimming after lunch?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to corduroy

Well, that’s the evening radio done. Not sure if I made sense, but I’ll stick the audio online shortly.

via Janetter for Mac

On hold for @domknight @702sydney and around NSW/ACT. I’ll be on after The Beatles, streamed from abc.net.au/sydney/

via Janetter for Mac

I’m talking NBN and iCode cutoffs with @domknight on @702sydney and local radio NSW at 2110, stream at abc.net.au/sydney/

via Janetter for Mac

@neerav I tried watching the first ep of Planet Word but got annoyed. Linguistics blogs have said it fails to sort consensus from radical.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to neerav

@ataraxite Oh the writing plods along, and now they let me talk in front of people. I’ll have more to say on that tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

That’s Mr Kaczynski to you, you disrespectful pricks.

via Janetter for Mac

Pleased to hear that @domknight is advocating book-burning.

via Janetter for Mac

@manaz_d Ta for that. I’m guessing my message for @domknight and audience tonight is that analysis ain’t instant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to manaz_d

Has anyone actually done ANY analysis of the NBN rollout plan, as opposed to fact-free party-political talking points? THAT’S what I’d like.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s true, Tucker’s Law really does look better in cross-stitch. twitpic.com/1bxol1

via Janetter for Mac

Also add rather a lot of thunder and lightning to the mix.

via Janetter for Mac

Seriously pissing down, actually.

via Janetter for Mac

Il pleut. Finally. And quite heavily.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @domknight: Sorry - NSW/ACT only ;) [Oh. Yes. Brainfart my end. Sorry, I knew that. But I’ll plug the internet feed in due course.]

@SnarkyPlatypus “First conceived in a Goldman Sachs research report” is your answer there.

BRICS “an artificial bloc built on a catchphrase” nytimes.com/2012/03/27/opi…

via Janetter for Mac

So, I just agreed to talk NBN rollout and iCode infected computer cutoffs with @domknight on ABC Local Radio nationally at 2110 or so.

via Janetter for Mac

@johnthelutheran Apparently, and this may come as a shock, the internet extends beyond England, and there’s many papers named @thetimes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnthelutheran

“Prime Minister Gillard today warmly welcomed President Bongo and his delegation to Australia.” I can’t read any more.

via Janetter for Mac

@leslienassar You’re the one at the 5-star hotel, get your own effing tacos! /cc @quietdiscourse

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

@bleeters @LiamT Why surprise? iCode has been public, reported on from the very beginning. Get your infected shit off the internet, people!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bleeters

Yes, of course your tacos will be delivered by robot helicopter. Der. tacocopter.com HT @quietdiscourse

“ACMA: 10,000 malware infected Aussies to be cut-off from internet July 9”, writes @LiamT cso.com.au/article/420020…

via Janetter for Mac

ACMA cleverly scheduled their “We’re gonna cut you off!” announcement against the NBN rollout plan. How to bury yourself, what?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @timehhh: Shorter Turnbull: “We don’t like this NBN roll-out at all, but also it should be happening faster”. Oh, OK then. [Snerk!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timehhh

Ah, I love PR firms’ emails to “**SAVE THE DATE” (with asterisks!) that don’t mention whether the event is lunchtime, evening or what.

via Janetter for Mac

I think I may do an explanatory voiceover for that video, to answer @craigthomler and other’s questions.

via Janetter for Mac

“NBN Three Year Rollout” video. youtube.com/watch?v=-bcfcw… Unimpressed. Not a data viz. Gibson desert, Sydney shown as equal density! What a wank.

“Conroy plans filter ‘surprise’ announcement”, writes @joshgnosis zdnet.com.au/conroy-plans-f…

via Janetter for Mac

Sudden serious fatigue.

via Janetter for Mac

Quick quick quick, @ABCNews24! You haven’t been a vulture for nearly an hour! Yes! Back to repetitive intrusion on a family’s grief! FFS!

via Janetter for Mac

Mind you, I do suppose we need to explain that the 3-year plan in a 9-year project only contains 1/3 of the total. OMFG ARITHMETICK!

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, @ABCNews24, let’s leave the media conference, what I tuned in for, to watch… what? A journalist repeat what we just heard. Bah!

via Janetter for Mac

I see @ABCNews24 is still playing vulture. Fucking disgusting. FFS give a stressed-out and now apparently grieving family a break!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @joshgnosis: It begins instagr.am/p/IvCXWMFCGU/ [Oh, well, THAT makes me wish I’d gone to Sydney for the event! That’s SPESHUL!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

Oh, and I’ve stopped writing because it turns out there wasn’t a news story there. Much as I love my friends at the FBI.

via Janetter for Mac

Goo Goo Dolls live in concert? Oddly enough, even that isn’t enough to persuade me to cross an ocean.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, I’m starting to write now. With luck, one fewer editor will hate me today.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you, @martinwalsh, for the reminder that Klout is nought but a gimmick. Me on this previously, with references: technologyspectator.com.au/emerging-tech/…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to martinwalsh

I see the search for a missing child not yours has become recreation for TV-equipped proles today. You should be thoroughly ashamed.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe there’s a hidden bonus. Maybe we could drop the fuckin’ thing on Jeff Koons and all his arasehat enablers.

via Janetter for Mac

I should also point out that’s not a “train” (sequence of cars) but a locomotive. Without its tender. But, like, fuck accuracy.

via Janetter for Mac

Jeff Koons is a tosser.

RT @ozdj: Awesome sign in the lift is awesome. twitpic.com/92ks2a [It’s about time someone took some responsibility, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

To be clear, @andrew_hedge @elronxenu, I could get said Accreditation. I’ve just not got one (yet). Don’t cover head of govt/state stuff.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll start writing soon. I’m hoping that some food will make me feel less dreadful shortly.

via Janetter for Mac

“National Media Accreditation” being the pre-screened “real media” and “security cleared” status to keep out the ratbags.

via Janetter for Mac

Good thing I didn’t bother with Sydney for NBN rollout announcement. Ranga-in-Chief is taking over. National Media Accreditation now needed.

via Janetter for Mac

True, @vealmince, media releases that begin ‘Arsehat Pty Ltd, a leading provider of…’ deserve a special type of derision too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vealmince

Thu plan, unordered: Write for @zdnetaustralia; SEKRIT call left over from yesterday; client web project management; cook all the things.

At least the Pirate Party in Berlin’s parliament is showing some sense. Pony Time FTW. equestriadaily.com/2011/12/berlin…

via Janetter for Mac

A “washing machine” has a “motherboard diagnostic code”, @paulwallbank? Then it’s ridiculously over-engineered. This planet is so fucked.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

WTF @rubikfinancial? Firms not allowed to tender unless they’re in the Magic Quadrant? How about we get the next ship off this planet?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rubikfinancial

SnarkyPlatypus Whenever people mention “social marketing”, I picture my friends trying to advertise brands to me and me bitchslapping them for it.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:06 AM, Mar 29th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

I’m willing to modify that viewpoint if people tell me it was ever a vital purchase decider, not price, performance, features etc.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear PR People, no-one gives a toss about your client in Gartner’s Magic Fucking Quadrant. Lead with that, I press delete. Always.

via Janetter for Mac

@JonDeeOz Tell the companies your no junk mail sign is being ignored. They will tell the distributor. Two strikes they get sacked.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonDeeOz

Fursday, and unimpressed.
