I’ll interact with stuff in the morning.

Reports of snow in Blackheath? It’d be midnight before I’d be back up there and in bed. I need more sleep than that. SEKRIT place booked.

And the radio is done. Will link to the podcast later.

RT @RNDrive Yes stream us from the front page RT @stilgherrian I’m assuming there’s a live stream at abc.net.au/rn/

RT @johnthelutheran Have ABC had to draft in the army to make up the numbers? [No but maybe it’d all run faster.]

via Plume for Android

I’ll be obvious your ABC Radio National after they’ve chatted with Ms Kenneally about basketball.

via Plume for Android

You’ll be reassured by the fact, as I am, that ABC’s front desk is run by G4S.

via Plume for Android

Arriving at ABC Ultimo.

Want to know what the iPhone 5 will be like? Well, just effing wait until it’s announced. It’s not like you can buy one before then, twats.

via Plume for Android

@ataraxite HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I think you need to leave the windows open a bit though, if you’re in the shed.

via Plume for Android

Who’s that unkempt hag hosting “A Current Affair”?

via Plume for Android

dannolan Samsung’s been busted using child labour in China. Seriously is there nothing of Apple’s they won’t copy?

OH: “Take the white woman.”

via Janetter for Mac

Why is Tony Abbott shouting at cows about the Prime Minister?

via Janetter for Mac

Headlines that’ll make sense 100 years hence, I’m sure: “Yarn-bombing for Pussy Riot” abc.net.au/radionational/…

via Janetter for Mac

@MargaretSimons @ben_hr “The media” does always seem a tad self-obsessed, however. Tho politicians imagine we all care about politics too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretSimons

@MargaretSimons It’s almost as newsworthy as “Objectionable material found on internet, people complain”…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretSimons

MargaretSimons Do journos really have nothing better to write about? “Undergraduate exercised poor judgment” is about as newsy as “journo cracks bad joke”

I’ll be saying more shit about that Facebook page on ABC Radio National just after 1900.

via Plume for Android

RT: I said some shit about “that Facebook page” on @amworldtodaypm abc.net.au/worldtoday/con…

via Plume for Android

RT @R_Chirgwin My thoughts about the blowout that isn’t, plus why it’s important to count households right. bit.ly/OVev0W

via Plume for Android

I’ve finished recording a long and fascinating hyperconversation with @mpesce for “Patch Monday”. Refreshments required.

via Plume for Android

“Sinai Attack Bears”?

via Plume for Android

@Idealaw @MsLods @glengyron It was, basically “Facebook can just ignore Aust”, but my original point wasn’t just about legality.

via Plume for Android in reply to Idealaw

I’ve alighted at Central and am wandering toward Ultimo to meet @mpesce for the “Patch Monday” podcast recording.

via Plume for Android

@drearyclocks Yeah, the right-wing pinkos will soon sort them out though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to drearyclocks

@glengyron I’m not seeing a practical difference between “publishing” and “making public”, though IANAL. Ping @Idealaw @MsLods?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

RT @Reddit_txt: Nazis try out eugenics like ONE time, and SUDDENLY it’s a ‘bad idea’ and we should never do it again.

via Janetter for Mac

@glengyron There’s a difference, as I understand it, between “conduct business” and “publish”. The publication isn’t here.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

I said some shit about “that Facebook page” on @amworldtodaypm abc.net.au/worldtoday/con…

via Janetter for Mac

Wait. Did @barrysaunders just assert that books are unusable? @mpesce

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jstogdill: This is how you lift 545lbs over your head. nyti.ms/PGf25d Clean and Jerk. [Bullshit. I’d get a forklift.]

via Janetter for Mac

Also, @NBNCo changed its plan to adapt to changing circumstances. Would we prefer it didn’t?

via Janetter for Mac

So for @abc730 (and anyone else) to refer to 3% variation in NBN costs as a “blowout” is a basic factual error. Will there be a correction?

via Janetter for Mac

R_Chirgwin According to KPMG, a forecast accuracy within five percent is considered exceptionally good. What was the ’s blowout again?

via YoruFukurou (retweeted on 1:18 PM, Aug 9th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

I may well fall asleep on this train.

via Janetter for Mac

Since when did “semantics” start meaning “you’re being a pendant, your point is irrelevant”, except gutlessly not saying that?

RT @BernardKeane Any employment gurus know why male teen participation rate is now well below female teen participation? [Carbon tax ]

via Plume for Android

What I am going to do now is walk to Wentworth Falls and catch the 1232 train to Sydney.

via Janetter for Mac

@BernardKeane A full half a point? So half a full point or, in essence, a half a point. Or four full eighths of a point. FOUR OF THEM!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

@sylmobile If someone doesn’t understand the utility of email aliases then they’re not competent to be administering an email system.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

I’m still catching up with the news, but I hadn’t realised that being polite is sexist now.

via Janetter for Mac

@6564828 I’d be more than happy for Our Friends in Russell to explain things to me with data. Our politicians seem incapable of it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

So, I just reiterated my Twittertream from last night for @amworldtodaypm, but using the c-word less often.

via Janetter for Mac

Being recorded for the radio, suddenly.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes Bathtub drownings are racially motivated?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

It’s not just whether a threat exists, but what the risk is. Remember, we’re more likely to drown in a bathtub. Where’s the War on Bathtubs?

via Janetter for Mac

“Terrorism is an ever-present threat,” asserts the PM again in a press release just now. Shouldn’t we at some point demand actual evidence?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: @dobes It reflects the end of the Grand Narrative and the rise of the era of teledildonics.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah thanks @glengyron @purserj @sylmobile @dobes @RealNickHodge @leslienassar for confirming the future will be just the same. @mpesce

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

So yeah I see my tactical error there now.

via Janetter for Mac

“Patch Monday” is with @mpesce about “The Next Billion Seconds” thenextbillionseconds.com so let me know if you have any questions.

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan: Minor client webby works; 1232 train to Sydney; 1500 record “Patch Monday” podcast; return to Wentworth Falls, probably.

via Janetter for Mac

True, @NewtonMark, though for my part I was just criticising what was on the screen in front of me. Had the pub shown something else…

via Janetter for Mac

NewtonMark Sledging for their coverage isn’t fair. It’s no less informed than most ALP MPs, and is giving it more of a run than anyone else.

via Tweetbot for Mac (retweeted on 9:11 AM, Aug 9th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

Do we all HAVE to say “engagement” rather than “marketing” now? Seems such a wank.

via Janetter for Mac

Hello, Fursday. Sit down, shut up, and behave yourself.
