@benrhughes Yeah, I think isolating the one tiny bit that rattles your soapbox is the best way to analyse writing. /cc @jayrosen_nyu

Orwell can just fucking well HTFU, I say @mpesce @NathanaelB!

I agree with @jayrosen_nyu, this is THE best Instagram-Facebook piece I’ve seen to date. nymag.com/daily/intel/20…

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. So @mashable, “resources for the connected generation”, is a spam-only one-way Twitter stream. How hypocrite.

@crispin_harris No thank you. No more objects needed to deal with.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to crispin_harris

I am an idiot. The @mashable story says Anthony LaPaglia plays the detective tracking Assange, not Assange. I was distracted by arsehattery.

via Janetter for Mac

The odd thing about @mashable’s description of “Underground” is that it WAY over-emphasises Assange’s role. That may be the film PR’s fault.

via Janetter for Mac

Here’s @mashable on “Underground”. Anthony LaPaglia as Assange? mashable.com/2012/04/10/wik… Also, Assange hasn’t been chaged with anything, twats.

via Janetter for Mac

So @mashable, why to be able to comment, signing in via Twitter, do I need to give you permission to tweet as me, change my profile?

via Janetter for Mac

@wordsonaplatfrm @swearyanthony OK, I’m now officially out of my depth. :) But if I get what you’re saying, the “problem” could self-limit?

“It’s so easy to use. All they have to do it scan the QR code…” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering whether I should become more informed about the Royal Canadian Mint’s MintChip blurring of physical and digital currency.

via Janetter for Mac

@wordsonaplatfrm Is that just that you can’t mention every aspect of an issue in a reasaonbly-long story? Or does it change the argument?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wordsonaplatfrm

@wordsonaplatfrm I admit I don’t understand this properly, but it feels wrong that speculation is ever-shorter term. /cc AlanKohler

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wordsonaplatfrm

@wordsonaplatfrm Re-reading, I’m not sure @AlanKohler made clear that front-running is illegal, HFT merely (to my eyes) very unsavoury.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wordsonaplatfrm

@joshgnosis Well that’s a worry, ‘cos I’ve always assumed that you’d be less easily confused than me. Either way, it’s a bit wrong.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

It turns out the article headlined “GAM versus GAM” in @crikey_news today isn’t about that video I saw after all…

via Janetter for Mac

Meanwhile, @AlanKohler explains how high-frequency trading (HFT) is a parasite on the ASX. abc.net.au/news/2012-04-1…

@nicilind @AlanKohler @BusinessSpec @crikey_news Most abberations can be blamed on listening to Devo.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nicilind

@nicilind I am now SO trying not to imagine @AlanKohler in a toilet cubicle. Or a nightclub. Or both. /cc @BusinessSpec @crikey_news

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nicilind

Wondering whether the AIBM (@BusinessSpec) memo leaked to @crikey_news came down the stairwell or just seeped through the ceiling.

RT @en_gy: Double ducking, @stilgherrian? Just these two outside my office. They’re not amused. pic.twitter.com/5BGO83KB [Different, ducks.]

RT @DeleuzeGuattari: Produce a deterritorialized refrain as the final end of music. [HT @Tim_Coronel]

For reasons that I cannot explain, I seem to be eating lunch the accompaniment of the “Pulp Fiction” soundtrack.

@semiboganman Gawd no need to apologise. That was a tiny glitch in the grand scheme of things. /cc @mukimu

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@semiboganman @mukimu Ah, gotta love a fast correction!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

MT @semiboganman: actually - redacted. ZDI is part of Tipping Point but samba flaw discovered by Tipping Point DV Labs, not ZDI. /cc @mukimu

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

MT @semiboganman: pretty sure that [Samba] flaw wa via the work of the zeroday initiative [Ping @mukimu]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

I have been informed that double ducking is probably too much.

@seancarmody A safer strategy might be to simply not trust me for anything.

Careful readers will have noted that my tweet about deadline extensions alters my tweet about my plan for the day.

via Janetter for Mac

There are some questions that I should not be trusted to answer.

via Janetter for Mac

I completely agree with this designer’s client. clientsfromhell.net/post/208497733…

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, @Traceylei2, a chocolate fudge sundae wouldn’t especially appeal. Now if we’re talking roast duck… or a pig… or tub waan…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Traceylei2

Few things make a writer happier than a deadline extension. That, and one of those other few things, just happened.

via Janetter for Mac

Sent me email lately? I’m on deadline today and tomorrow and will focus solely on that. Everything else will be responded to later.

Wed plan: Work on the feature story and not be interrupted by “urgent” problems caused by other people’s lack of planning.

via Janetter for Mac

@GeordieGuy Thanks. I did find that “Patch Monday” chat with @RidT refreshing after the relentless hyping of cyberwar. zdnet.com.au/cyberwar-dont-…
