I think quite enough people have retweeted @mikko’s every tweet today that I don’t need to, lovely chap that he is. JUST CLICK!

@jamezpolley Indeed, that’s why I mentioned possums. Weird images of Kaspersky E in my head now. I’ll deal with them when we chat later.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jamezpolley

@SnarkyPlatypus @NewtonMark I believe that you are both correct, in general terms. I’m doing 1000 words on cyberderp for 0900.

RT @NewtonMark: @stilgherrian You’re at AusCERT. Drunk yet? [THAT IS NOT THE POINT.]

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Why are you being responsible? On the Gold Coast? [BECAUSE I AM A RESPPONSIBLE HUMAN BEING WTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OH FFS that’s too much plugging of other people. I’ll have my well-thought-through and elegantly-expressed analysys tomorrow.

No-one following the hastag is even seeing these tweets because THEY ARE ALL DOWNSTAIRS DRINKING WHILE I AM TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE.

This hotel room has “rosemary and olive body wash”. Am I having a shower or preparing roast lamb? FFS what a wank!

Vodka slushies. This will end well.

According to the program, drinks will be appearing in less than 10 minutes. So this should all go swimmingly.

RT @The_Knuckle: There’s a rumor @darrenpauli is at . I’m yet to be convinced. [No no, I’ve seen him.]

RT @feed_the_chooks: @stilgherrian If Bob Ellis can do it… [That feeling when your self-view collaposes around you? That. Well played.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feed_the_chooks

That feeling when your editor tells you to write long-form analysis and file at 0900 tomorrow rather than fast news for 1600 today? That.

via Janetter for Mac

Uhuh. 12 minutes of power left. Now no-one has been stabbed yet, as I pointed out earlier…

RT @joshgnosis: You can’t call something “so-called” when that’s what you named it yourself. [Every journo effing well read and understand!]

@RealNickHodge You are not helping. Or you are helping. I am noit sure which.

So US Cyber Command is explaining the legislative basis of cyberwar via the medium of stand-up comedy…

via Janetter for Mac

Robert Clark explains that to get defence funding just put “cyber-” in front of it. Example cyber-portapotties, with mousemat.

RT @agarner: Hit that F5 button and turn off the light under your keyboard. [Ta. Still under an hour. Argh. Also, stop reading my screen.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to agarner

Under 1h of power left on devices. Now I’d never say that I’ll end up stabbing people but, you know, do your own risk assessment.

RT @bigjsl: I work for a Co with both a pants policy _&_ underwear policy. Both were responses to specific staff behavior. [Labor Party?]

I’d like to thank the Queensland Police Service for giving @BreakfastNews something important to talk about. Well done.

via Janetter for Mac

@bigmac I gather that @BreakfastNews has a long tradition of not liking the full flowering of my tweets.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bigmac

RT @ataraxite: You’re expecting companies to treat employees as capable human beings, not worker bees, you do realise? [Weird cat is right.]

via Janetter for Mac

@NetIQ Nah you’re fine, if voluble. There’s a few PRs still asking me “Are you goint to AusCERT, as if my movements are SEKRIT.” Twats.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NetIQ

That possibly sounded flippant, @media140au, but surely there a point where a “work skill” is simply a normal skill in current society?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to media140au

I’m not so sure, @media140au. The technology is almost trivial to use. If an employee can’t get their head around it in 2012, sack them.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to media140au

Some of you people are sick.

Discussing the purpose of the resort’s in-room donkey with a waiter serving coffee. She was most explanatory. (I guess you had to be there.)

I now understand why Pakistan wants to nuke India. (This comment is not related to anything you can see on Twitter.)

via Janetter for Mac

Companies with no “social media policy”? Just take your “talking on telephone policy”, replace “telephone” with “social”. You’re welcome.

via Janetter for Mac

There’s an inherent hypocrisy, @ozdj. If everything is social because it’s normal human comms, why do we need special to do it?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

Thank you for highlighting that arsehatter, @ozdj. I’m so sick of “social is special, it needs to be handled by the magic little petals” …

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

ozdj One day this’ll seem as silly as “Who should own telephony in your business?” RT @getbiglittlekid ‘Who should own social in your business?’

@NetIQ Ah yes, I spotted @ianyip last night so I’ll definitely introduce myself so I can MAKE IT STOP. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NetIQ

Amused at PR people who’ve emailed me, “Are you youg to AusCERT?” Obviously they don’t know how to read my website or Twitter. Arsehats.
