@jamezpolley Oh I’m already familiar with the Muni. This’ll be my fifth visit to San Francisco, from memory.

RT @jamescmcpherson: @stilgherrian could be an iSnort youtube.com/watch?v=-j-DGr… [So, there’s an app for that. Excellent.]

KimKierkegaard All feel the dread of being alone in the world, overlooked by God. A pop of red gives your look a boost & helps you feel more confident.

So, when I’m in San Francisco at the end of the month, is this recommended? pic.twitter.com/RppZfY9U

@6564828 Japanese Twitterclientseparatism makes sense from a typo-design POV, but German? Dunno! Need stats. @SnarkyPlatypus

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

@6564828 Yeah, odd that. Is there something about Twitter and Japan? BTW thanks for your tip before. @SnarkyPlatypus

@craigthomler Who “needs” to be outraged? Recreational outrage annoys me. @mrgrumpystephen @ABCthedrum

@SnarkyPlatypus Some of the cool kids use YoruFukurou, but it didn’t handle multiple account in a way that suited me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mrgrumpystephen I sometimes read the comments, when I have the time and the mental energy. Though usually not at @ABCthedrum.

RT @Arash_Mohebbi: Deep breaths mate. Now show us on this dolly where the evil trolls touched you. [It isn’t rendered big enough.]

@Kaptain_Kaos So did you read the article, and have specific criticisms? Or is that a response to the headline tweet? @crikey_news

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Kaptain_Kaos

@belindafarrelly Ouch! Although Wentworth Falls has gone sub-zero a couple of nights this year, I haven’t been here at the time.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to belindafarrelly

@Andrew_Zammit Indeed. Now if only we could get ASIO and ASIS to take part in something similar… ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Andrew_Zammit

@Andrew_Zammit Thanks very much. It helped immensely that Asst Comm Gaughan was available. @BernardKeane

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Andrew_Zammit

I see @GetUp has a thing about the National Security Review, of which data retention is a part, so if you want more than 3 mins of clue…

@McDermie Indeed, oversight is a cost burden. I get your points, but the law isn’t written generally enough to work the way you want.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to McDermie

@McDermie Classic example, surveillance ops less likely to be used arbitrarily when they cost $50k, more when $5. Oversight needs to change,

via Janetter for Mac in reply to McDermie

@McDermie I think you’re being reductionist. Change in tech changes the role it has in society, which changes cost or power balances.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to McDermie

At this juncture I’d like to thank the gods of the weather for their planned balmy minimum tonight of 2C.

@SoYoureJayce Paris? Hmmm. I suspect full bottle of Grey Goose vodka should do the trick.

@derekbradley I did try to point out that I was somewhat melanin-deficient for this appellation, but he’d have none of it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbradley

@derekbradley True. Second-last time at my fave SFO dive bar I ended the night being fed booze and substances and being called “m’nigger”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbradley

@derekbradley Thanks you again. Now all I need to do is find a person in San Francisco to drink beer with.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbradley

@derekbradley A beer mecca? That will somehow have to fit in with my planned visit to my favourite little cocktail bar… ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbradley

@derekbradley I was going to say “Why visit SFO to visit a website?” but then I looked. Thank you so much!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbradley

@HarrisonPolites And that, Sir, is why I don’t do daily news cycle any more. And I’ve had to endure at least twice as many years of them!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to HarrisonPolites

@expectproblems Yes. Seattle is exactly San Francisco. The 3-hour flight between the two is an illusion made possible by in-flight scotch.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@HarrisonPolites So a bit like all sports journalism then? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to HarrisonPolites

Looks like I’ll be in San Francisco from 26 Aug to 3 Sep. So that’s either a warning or a blessed relief, depending if you’re there or here.

via Janetter for Mac

@HarrisonPolites Yes, so you know what’s wrong with news? The first three letters… ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to HarrisonPolites

Story filed for @CSO_Australia. That’s my media production done for the day. Monday, it has been a success.

@charispalmer I’m afraid I did not write the thing that you point to. It was @neerav, it says,

That @lukehopewell bloke is looking quite OK on the TV these days.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to benmcginnes

@Tullo Well, purpose/point aren’t my words (editors write the headlines), but the AAPT hack was politically naive IMO.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Tullo

@barrysaunders @chrisbrownie Even trained programmers receive precious little exposure to security principles. Or used to.

via Janetter for Mac

@McDermie But new technology creates new concepts too, or blurs previous ones. Where is a tweet published, for example?

via Janetter for Mac

@barrysaunders @chrisbrownie I’ve kinda done the op-ed on Anonymous already, for today’s Crikey. I am the future.

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisbrownie @barrysaunders Stop it. This has to be a serious opinion about something security-related.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

The slightly annoying thing about having to write an op-ed this afternoon is having to have an interesting opinion about something.

via Janetter for Mac

@Steve_Lockstep Ah yes, I believe I’ve ranted about Target etc somewhere. Probably multiple times. ;) @jturner_ibrs

@dobes Yep, the ol’ channel-below-the-fold glitch. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Oh right. Production error in “Patch Monday” podcast. Spurious theme music at the 34-minute mark. Preparing fixed version now.

via Janetter for Mac

@jturner_ibrs Why is it always storage companies going on about Big Data? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jturner_ibrs

And that’s the radio done.

via Janetter for Mac

@mukimu No that’s true. And I missed your first tweet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mukimu

Actually I’m not first up after Mr Cave. THEY ARE TALKING TO OTHER PEOPLE FIRST.

via Janetter for Mac

On hold for ABC @1057darwin to talk modern busy lifestyles. After Nick Cave. Audio stream at abc.net.au/darwin/

via Janetter for Mac

@franksting Nah, I think it’s just that many (most?) podcasts are made by people with little training of skill in program construction.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

I’m talking about our modern overwhelming digital lives on ABC @1057darwin at 1100 AEST / 1030 ACST, stream at abc.net.au/darwin/

@intrepidfear Thank you very much. Do tell us when you discover us doing shit, though. @riskybusiness

@franksting I’ve had trouble finding podcasts that don’t make me want to throw things and scream “Plan first, edit afterwards, arsehats!”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

Story filed for @crikey_news. That’s the only tight deadline for today, so this pleases me.

via Janetter for Mac

@BernardKeane You’re right, the claw machine scandal is a great tech story! @franksting @joshgnosis @NewtonMark

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

@franksting Thanks for the heads up. I’ll check them out.

@joshgnosis And in my case, when I finished recording with @BernardKeane and @NewtonMark after, erm, a few beers and saw the time.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis Yeah but I was thinking of junkies just like you when I left in all of @BernardKeane’s political trivia… I mean vital history.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

@mukimu Heck, it doesn’t take a genius to realise hacking AAPT is a political own goal, but I know Journalism requires Experts to say it. ;)

So that would be an unexpected story commission for this morning. So it was a good thing I was up early, right?

@juhasaarinen Reading your tweets as a summary of the world gives the impression that there’s too many psychotics.

@rob0tika It’s probably the traitor thing, but also that’s not the future tense but, um, something more subtle that I can’t understand now.

Hello fellow pandas (and everyone else, who is a traitor). This is going to be Monday, OK?
