Thanks for all the book suggestions earlier. I don’t have the energy to compile them just how. I’ll tackle that tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

While I’m waiting for this audio to render (that’s another clue) I’ll re-pimp the things I had published earlier today, then talk to you.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe slightly longer than that. I keep forgetting that my substitute computer is a bit slower than my usual one.

via Janetter for Mac

This will take me around another 30 or 40 minutes, I think.

@eskimo_sparky Is your definition of social media being presented to an audience than can handle the phrase “self-obsessed cunts”?

The @TenNewsSydney reporter out there amongst the cows in her expensive white power jacket doesn’t look happy at all. Poor petal.

via Janetter for Mac

I have nothing against @TenNewsSydney in particular, it’s just what this particular front bar has provided for my edification today. Suffer.

via Janetter for Mac

Yay! @TenNewsSydney reports on the M9 plans, SW to foot of Blue Mountains to NW, live from… the Anzac Bridge. Relevance? 200m from Ten HQ.

via Janetter for Mac

So this JayJay’s TVC is encouraging the inappropriate groping of others as “fashion”? Ping @mumbrella [smirks]

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, @TenNewsSydney is reporting LIVE from where something happened in London yesterday. “Hunted by powerful and ruthless governments”!

via Janetter for Mac

Dear @TenNewsSydney, the consensus of this front bar is that there doesn’t seem to be much blood there at all what are you even on about.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, I think I’ll do this as a blog post. I’ll compile the suggestions I receive into a post later this evening, and we’ll roll from there.

via Janetter for Mac

Fact or fiction, @Dom_Innate, I think. Whatever you reckon will give him an understanding of this place.

A Singapore-resident Indian has just asked me to name the two best books for him to read about Australia. Your nominations are…?

@michaelmeloni Yeah but my railway station photos don’t have topless 15yo girls in them.

BRAYDON IS NOT A NAME, TEN NEWS, WHAT EVE… Oh. I’m on very shaky ground here, aren’t I?

@MargaretGees That journalists and media critics continually want to turn every tweet in reportage actually shits me to tears. :)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@MargaretGees Twitter’s no more nor less a reporting medium that paper, TV, radio. All can also be used for fiction, satire, organising BBQ.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@MargaretGees “Twitter is essentially a reporting medium right”? Nope. It’s just a messaging platform. Global conversations made visible.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@MargaretGees Quote away! I’m speaking in public. This is all echoes of stuff I’ve probably said at some point anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@MargaretGees And people have “x teacher at y” too, but not everything they tweet is expected to be a primary school class exercise.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@MargaretGees Just because someone works in the media (or anywhere!) they don’t lose the right to openly use new social tools in the life.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@MargaretGees Saying that you work at a news outlet is not the same as saying everything you tweet is capital-N news.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@MargaretGees I think it’s still easy. Is that Twitter stream part of the masthead’s journalistic output? Y/N What is the stated intent?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@MargaretGees I find the line very clear, actually. No-one owns me. If it’s a paid gig, I write by the boss’ rules. Otherwise, I’m me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MargaretGees

@Idealaw Arrange some days off for you? Sure. We’l hack your computer, add kiddie porn, call the police. Done.

The way gay men keep retweeting things about how gay men are cool is as bad as SEO experts and SMEGs. ;)

Uhoh. My support system’s email responder has just gotten into a loop with a supplier’s support system email responder. Bytes everywhere!
