@adm_76 @adm_76 Yes, you should. Others are feeling the need to poke out their own eyes. To say “wombats in a sack” would be cruel, but…

@DeanBarnett @BeauGiles Thanks, Dean, you’ve just reminded me that I really should make my Instagram page look more betteror.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to DeanBarnett

@BeauGiles Yeah what @DeanBarnett said. :) What you seek is the Instapress WordPress plugin from wordpress.org/extend/plugins…

Blog post: “Weekly Wrap 104: Worms, smartphones and television” stilgherrian.com/weekly-wrap/we… I’m told I should warn you about the photo.

@benmoretti @ABCNews24 But it raises a serious question: how well can you report something that’s foreign to both news outlet and audience?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to morebento

@liamberkery Ah good. So the headline becomes: “Sigur Ros a ‘cheap douche’: Berkery” [nods] I’m all for fair and accurate reportage.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to liamberkery

RT @liamberkery: Sigur ros is like being in a womb made of brandy. How could you not want that. [So, an expensive douche?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to liamberkery

@kristinmoore2 @TomDaveyAus But don’t let any actual privacy experts hear me being called that. I’m not expert in anything.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kristinmoore2

@kristinmoore2 No problem. That reminded me to listen to @TomDaveyAus’ report, which is rather good. tomdavey.com.au/AccessReduced/…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kristinmoore2

@benmoretti @ABCNews24 Yeah I let “It’s a black market where only the most skilled hackers…” through to the keeper. Choose one’s battles.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to morebento

@danielstone @neerav Oh that’s a keeper. pic.twitter.com/ZQWouTGL Tired, I forgot “Look at @abcAndrewG”, read the autocue, looked down lens.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to danielstone

@kristinmoore2 Sorry, what have I done now? Whatever it ws I deny it strenuously.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kristinmoore2

@expectproblems We tend to have more wallabies than jabberwocks. And demanding rosellas.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

And here I am at Banksia Cottage. Finally. The scrubland is shrouded in mist.

I am about to arrive at Blacktown, where I shall change from a train with broken windows to a bus of some description. Thrilled, I am.

via Janetter for Mac

@kcarruthers EVERYTHING IS BLACK AND YELLOW HOW COULD YOU HAVE A CLEARER WARNING?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

Anyway I thought you all liked my wildlife photos… :/

via Janetter for Mac

New photo: “Sydney’s Saturday night fashion”, Wynyard Station, 2330 last night. There is… yellow. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac

@kcarruthers Sometimes it it raining, and other times it is not. But I’m not sure if that’s because of time or of space.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

@chrisjrn @abcAndrewG “Flippant”? Maybe just the detached tone of someone analysing the strategy, regadless of good guy / bad guy status.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

@SabianWilde Thank you. I don’t know if PR people liked that video generally, but the industry has some odd habits.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SabianWilde

MT @purserj: @chrisjrn they managed to make IINet look like part of an evil child porn/drug fueled empire [And your point is?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

I am on a train. For now.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, batteries are now recharged. I’ll check out and head back to Wentworth Falls. Train to Blacktown, then (sigh) a bus for the rest of it.

via Janetter for Mac

@einspruch Overall I’d have probably preferred the penguin b-roll. One can never have too many penguins in the nes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to einspruch

@chrisjrn Did @abcAndrewG (to talk about him in the third person) have a penny-drop moment then? I’ll review the footage. Ta.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

MT @vealmince: “… a bit of an unconventional approach using facts instead of sensationalistic scare stories. [I’m irresponsible. I know.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vealmince

@einspruch Welcome to rolling news. Random b-roll “internet stuff” to get my mug off screen so people can enjoy their muesli.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to einspruch

@KatieWeiss_ I’ve just posted the video stilgherrian.com/conversations/… but essentially a follow-up to Fairfax’s story. smh.com.au/technology/tec…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to KatieWeiss_

Blog post: “Talking about the ‘Dark Web’ on @ABCNews24”, with moving pictures from the TV. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

@KatieWeiss_ Oh I’m not there. I’m back at the hotel. I assume they’re playing a grab from the interview I did at 1020 AEST.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to KatieWeiss_

Right. As soon as all the batteries have recharged I’ll check out of this hotel and head back to Wentworth Falls.

via Janetter for Mac

Hang on what? I’m on the television AGAIN? Must be a slow-news raining Sunday…

via Janetter for Mac

@miss_shiny Well shiny was probably better than untrained me having a go at my own makeup.

via TweetDeck in reply to miss_shiny

@seearjay No, @abcAndrewG wad responsible for his bottle. I’d left by then.

via TweetDeck in reply to seearjay

So… Shirt. Ironed. Buttoned up. Haircut. And something about hippies and Nazis. So thanks for that and also all the compliments.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. I forgot to say “plethora”. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac

I am back in the green room reading your insulting tweets while I finish my coffee.

via Janetter for Mac

@AKFRU I think we’ll be able to get “plethora” into it, yes. There’s a plethora of drugs available on Silk Road.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AKFRU

One quick warning, though. There’s no makeup person here. I will be naked in front of the cameras. Well, you know what I mean.

via Janetter for Mac

The last time I was on @ABCNews24 I managed to work rent boys into the conversation about the death of Steve Jobs, so what this time?

via Janetter for Mac

From the top of one of these “newspapers” an old woman in a red hat smiles at me. Good morning, Your Majesty.

via TweetDeck

My tweets were late there. I’m actually now in the here room at @ABCNews24, where I was offered…”newspapers”. Whatever they are.

via TweetDeck

Listening to a cab driver whinge that he’s been waiting an hour and now has a tiny job. His problem, I figure.

via TweetDeck

Noticing how crap this shirt looks.

via TweetDeck

I suppose, though, that I should ask someone to record the TV spot for me, ‘cos I don’t think @ABCNews24 is on iView.

via Janetter for Mac

I should probably stop paying attention to you and head over to the ABC because you all seem to have stopped making sense.

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile @NewtonMark @bleeters I’m fairly sure that there won’t be any goats. Mind you, it’s the ABC, so anything is possible.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

I shall take a balanced approach, @NewtonMark @bleeters, and explain that the entire fabric of western civilisation will be torn apart.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark: And the idea that there is some kind of conflict between lawful security and secret comms. Privacy is a security enhancer.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

RT @NewtonMark: The idea that you need special regulations for the internet instead of enforcing existing law. Immature 1990s thinking.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

RT @NewtonMark: “[Tor] is like playing pass the parcel with secret messages.” [Yep. Anything else in smh.com.au/technology/tec… we should kill?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@mspecht @middleclassgirl @bluntshovels I should carry a lightweight jumper. Or wear a hoodie like I did on SBS because internet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mspecht

Right. It’s 0830, so downstairs for breakfast and mentally rehearsing my soundbites, then at 0930 a cab across to ABC Ultimo.

via Janetter for Mac

Hang on @middleclassgirl @mspecht that contradicts @bluntshovels’ ironing advice. I AM SO CONFUSED! Also, I’m already finished.

via Janetter for Mac

Someone should explain to me again why I agreed to explain TOR live on Sunday morning television.

via Janetter for Mac

@anrchars So, buying a new thing at 0815 Sunday morning is probably not practical or cost-effective for one shirt, once. YMMV, of course.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to anrchars

@Opheli8 @bleeters A t-shirt doesn’t look right, and my black jumper is elsewhere. But @sylmobile says I only have to iron the front.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Opheli8

@bluntshovels Thanks very much. The iron is heating up as we speak.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bluntshovels

So how does one iron a shirt, exactly? Some of you gave me grief the last time I wore an unironed shirt on the national electric television.

via Janetter for Mac

So to confirm, 1020 AEST I’m on @ABCNews24 talking [cough] The Dark Web, as reported at smh.com.au/technology/tec… Watch at abc.net.au/news/abcnews24/

via Janetter for Mac

@moonysark @ABCNews24 Thank you. The (presumed) lovely @pearce_emmaj has indeed called and everything is hunky dory. Or possibly mackerel.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to moonytweets

@RobWauters Twitter client must-haves for me are multiple acounts, multiple columns reflecting searches / lists. And clear layout, I guess.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RobWauters

Why am I assuming it’s easier to tweet to @ABCNews24 than try to discover the right phone number? Is this The Future™?

via Janetter for Mac

@ABCNews24 Hey should I have gotten a call yesterday? Am I still needed for today at 1000 for 1020?

via Janetter for Mac

Sun plan: 1000 call for 1020 ABC News 24; retrieve lost notebook, if possible; return to Wentworth Falls; complete “Patch Monday” podcast.

via Janetter for Mac

@jpoh That’s quite creepy but, yes, looking the photo it could well be that we overheard @Dan_Byrne in the street last night.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jpoh

Oh. I seem to have misplaced a rather important notebook. There’s another little task for later today.

via Janetter for Mac

I suspect that the long, long dinner last night will not fully support my plan to be on the television a little later this morning.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh hello. This wasn’t a good idea. Not a good idea at all.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @derekbarry: @stilgherrian in that case, fish desert melt [My thoughts perfectly earthworm.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbarry

OK, my life is now officially surreal.
