@johnthelutheran Well, they’d certainly fit the category …

Finding that I have less and less time for obsessed monommaniacs.

via Plume for Android

Well this is a different plan.

RT @Domalomalom Cameron’s Leveson questioning will just be a long Voight-Kampff test

via Plume for Android

Mobile: I’m on a brief SEKRIT mission, which you may possibly be able to decipher for yourself. But tell no-one.

via Janetter for Mac

Craving a curry. This is not a good sign. I’ll have to seek one out I think.

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently, and stop me if you’ve heard this, but apparently different people have different viewpoints.

RT @joeobrien24: Randy the Kelpie goes for $12,000 abc.net.au/news/2012-06-1… [Bah! I know some randy kelpies that’ll go for a lot less!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joeobrien24

I’m fairly sure there’s a key difference between “spying” and just looking at things. But, you know, DANGEROUS SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY.

Hence, @GeordieGuy @swearyanthony, @zephoria’s “Facebook is a utility; utilities get regulated” zephoria.org/thoughts/archi…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GordyPls

MT @GeordieGuy: @swearyanthony interesting how the more social networks become indispensable the fewer the options for aggrieved users.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GordyPls

RT @swearyanthony: if only linkedin had some way of finding experts to help them with security…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to swearyanthony

@barrysaunders @Colvinius @kristinmoore2 Maybe language will evolve the way We Clever People want if we hit things with sticks.

via Janetter for Mac

I am filmed on location.

“Lax Security at LinkedIn Is Laid Bare” writes NYT. nytimes.com/2012/06/11/tec… Echoes my comments. cso.com.au/article/427055…

RT @swearyanthony: @jdub @stilgherrian I think “Monsieur Gherrian” in a Bond villian accent works [I do quite approve of this.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to swearyanthony

@corduroy Indeed. That Apple can fail something so fundamental as “switching networks” and not get roasted for it astounds me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to corduroy

@CameronWatt @j_hutch I missed your Ruby on Rails joke at the crucial “it will be funny now” time, but it was actually very funny.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CameronWatt

RT @thegrenville: @stilgherrian did you restart the internetz? [Yes. Yes I did.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to thegrenville

rhodri The way I now consume news: a) See jokes about a story on Twitter b) Try to work out what the story is c) Find story d) Understand jokes

@moldor It’s some integrated hotel internet/TV thing by Ezestream Digital. I ahve persuaded it to work.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to moldor

I have restarted all the things, twice, and I am now back on the internets. You can stop worrying now.

via Janetter for Mac

@moldor It’s wired rather than Wi-Fi, but yes I’m restarting the Mac and also the weird router cum TV distributor in this room.

via Plume for Android in reply to moldor

Restarting all the things.

via Plume for Android

That thing where one’s MacBook Pro doesn’t want to reconnect to the network? That.

via Plume for Android

RT @paininthenet @stilgherrian then what are wholesale gays? [It’s best not to think about that.]

via Plume for Android

I get the strangest feeling that over the course of the next hour I will want to stab quite a few people.

via Janetter for Mac

“Retail gays”? Is that code for “rent boys”?

via Janetter for Mac

@chris_stevenson @jeamland Yes, was a little surprised you were still awake and active. But time zones do that. Sleep well!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chris_stevenson

@chris_stevenson @jeamland Good luck with reception! I can always record a brief but with you before the main 1400 PDT / 0700 AEST block.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chris_stevenson

Maybe I should’ve gotten @dannolan to report from WWDC.

via Janetter for Mac

@chris_stevenson @jeamland I shall study your every tweet with deep fascination. But there’d be space for you on the podcast if you wished.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chris_stevenson

@kcarruthers My life is filled with far more important things than staring gormlessly out the window.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

@chris_stevenson Hah! Worst-kept secret! Actually @jeamland suggested you should be on the podcast too, recording 1400 PST. He’s bold.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chris_stevenson

We all have weather, you know, you’re not so fucking special.

via Janetter for Mac

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I CARE ABOUT WHETHER IT IS RAINING WHERE YOU ARE OR NOT WELL IT IS COMPLETELY NOT THE FUCK AT ALL SO SHUT THE FUCK UP.

via Janetter for Mac

@thornae @jeamland I once did daily vox pops for ABC Radio. I know precisely what random members of the public think. Sweet fuck all.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to thornae

RT @thornae: Interview the “man in the street”, because the opinions of a random member of the public are always important. [Quite right.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to thornae

@parisba True, but the announcement is “just” the news cycle peg onto which I’ll hang a wider discussion about some Apple-related themes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to parisba

On the podcast, @jeamland will look at (presumed) iOS 6 stuff from a developer’s point of view. Wondering who/what else to do.

via Janetter for Mac

So, I’ll potter for a few hours now, nap, then get up at 0230 AEST to find out what happens at WWDC and do the pre-production.

via Janetter for Mac

So, I decided that the “Patch Monday (on Tuesday)” podcast will indeed be about Apple something something iOS unicorns. Recording 0700 AEST.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @oneplanetmikey: Court transcript of the year. bit.ly/JRp5m7 [Certainly has… style. HT @DanielNguyen]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oneplanetmikey

@j_hutch So, you seem to know. Who IS Ruby Rose? Also, why do we never hear about awareness weeks until they’ve already started?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_hutch

@purserj @chrisjrn @en_gy I’ve no idea about audience size for the podcasts, I don’t even look at the traffic numbers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

@jeamland I have sent you an email. (World’s third-worst tweet ever.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@chrisjrn @en_gy @purserj I think the essence of “The 9pm Edict” is the monologue, with reference material incuded. Not my only idea though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

Full of pasta, happiness and fatigue.

via Janetter for Mac

Mobile: Searching for noodles; thinking about what the “Patch Monday (on Tuesday)” podcast will be about; thinking about other stuff too.

via Janetter for Mac

I feel like noodles. Do you feel like noodles? Even a little bit?

via Janetter for Mac

@en_gy @chrisjrn @purserj It is not like docking, no. Also, I’ve been thinking about “The 9pm Edict” podcast, but clarity has not emerged.

via Janetter for Mac

New blog post: “Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone first impressions”, most definitely not a review. stilgherrian.com/internet/samsu…

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose I’d better decide soon whether the “Patch Monday (on Tuesday)” podcast will be an Apple v Samsung, iOS v Android thing. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @max_au: if only there was some mobile device management solution built to work properly across all types of phones [Yes. If only. ;)]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to max_au

Right. The whole SamsungDive thing to register your phone for remote wipe etc has broken authentication. Won’t stay logged in. Grrr.

via Janetter for Mac

@parisba I completely get what you’re saying. But I’m not willing to do a blanket assessment based on limited experience. Yet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to parisba

@parisba Gosh. I’m glad you’ve developed a nuanced view of Samsung’s strengths and weaknesses. Is it all really that simple?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to parisba

There are some other aspects of the MySamsung web UI that are… of lower quality than one might expect.

via Janetter for Mac

So, Samsung haven’t added the Galaxy S III into their product registration drop-down menu yet. Ahem.

via Janetter for Mac

@jeamland We once did a radio show when one of the presenters was in hospital by recycling her sound bites from previous eposides.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@jeamland I’ll let you know around lunchtime or shortly thereafter. Thanks.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@jeamland “Patch Monday (on Tuesday)” is supposedly an early-file thing to @zdnetaustralia gets post-holidat content up fast. Will consider.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@DavidODonoghoe Well yes, there’s few situations where the “right tool for the job” question even arises, there’s so many similarities.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to David_ODonoghoe

@jeamland I’m still really not sure if I want to do that whole topic. But it is one of those big “shape of the industry” themes. Conflicted.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@jeamland Well the whole point would be tomorrow after the Apple WWDC keynote at 0300-0430 AEST. Recording as soon after as possible.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@jeamland Note that this is a potential enquiry only at this stage. I’ll wait until breakfast takes effect before making decisions.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@jeamland You really shouldn’t encourage me. But I’m thinking it could work with the right people. How early could you face the Skypeness?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@joshrowe Why no widespread two-factor authentication? Laziness, I’d say. Laziness explains so many things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshrowe

@DavidODonoghoe There’s a lot of that brand/platform bigotry, yes, but also an investment in a different ecosystem. My argument is weak. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to David_ODonoghoe

New business model: 1. Set up computer repair shop. 2. Scan famous customer’s computers for sex pics. 3. ??? 4. Profit! news.com.au/national/it-pi…

via Janetter for Mac

Oh hang on. She’s not mentally challenged. She’s speaking French. Well that’s kinda OK then I suppose.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce @jeffsonstein So I take it you’re volunteering to be on the podcast recording at, oh, 0600 AEST tomorrow?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@franksting No, I havn’t given up yet. I’m just… exploring options. I may still come to my senses.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@bleeters If I can get decent bandwidth into the bathroom, then recording the podcast in the bath is a fine idea. Then I can slit my wrists.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bleeters

ksablan Don’t write for mobile. Don’t write for social. Don’t write for tablets. Don’t write for web. Don’t write for print. Write for people.

I. Feel. So. Dirty.

via Janetter for Mac

Call for potential volunteers: Anyone want to be available effing early tomorrow Sydney time to talk Apple v Samsung, iOS v Android etc?

via Janetter for Mac

@misseagle Well, any authentication system has to balance risk and convenience. Centrelink already uses voice to authenticate customers.

via Janetter for Mac

@AlanTuringYear Hey do you know of anything happening in Australia for the Year? /cc @misseagle

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen Scary thing is, I’m now thinking a Samsung vs Apple discussion could be A Good Thing. PLEASE SEND ME GIN IMMEDIATELY.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Oh Dear God, please don’t make me do an Apple thing on the podcast! I am cheap and trashy enough as it is!

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen The practicalities are that I’d need a panel of people to record at around 0700 or 0800 AEST, to edit and post same day. Yuck.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@jeffsonstein We did an episode of “Patch Monday” on voice biometrics a little while back. zdnet.com.au/your-word-is-y… /cc @misseagle

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@misseagle Well, passwords as part of two-factor authentication. Biometrics like fingerprints could be another. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-facto…

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen Yes. Assemble panel of commentastors. Watch WWDC keynote. Start recording. Wait 30 minutes. Stop. I’d feel so, so cheap.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@juhasaarinen Yes. I must add to the billions of words written and said about Apple because I HAVE A RIGHT TO BE HEARD I EVEN HAVE A BLOG.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@PolemiCol Indeed. Hence the word “conventional” in there. ;) But I did all that with @ataraxite a little earlier.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PolemiCol

Another topic could be the death of the password, given that LinkedIn, eHarmony and Christ knows who else was hacked this week.

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering whether a “Patch Monday” podcast on Alan Turing might be a good thing, given that 23 June is the centenary of his birth.

via Janetter for Mac

Mon (supposed holiday) plan, unordered: Produce “Patch Monday (on Tuesday)” podcast; map out the rest of June; relax a bit; read a bit.

via Janetter for Mac

@FruzsE Why thank you very much! :) I enjoy covering infosec issues, and I reckon I’ll keep that as one of my key focus things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to FruzsE

@yewenyi Yes, the Queen’s Birthday is like so many celebrations: dates moved for convenience, weather or political purposes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yewenyi

@ataraxite Ah yes. In fact I can think of several more meanings of “conventional” that could give Her Majesty a really great time.

via Janetter for Mac

Good morning, Monday, and Happy Conventional Birthday, Your Majesty.
