@jplonie I’m fairly sure that holding a US visa does not cancel out my Australian citizenship.

@jplonie This entire hotel is on a left-hand thread. I blame the carbon tax.

“Patch Monday” podcast: “Geo-engineering: fixing climate for just US$6 billion” with @casparhewett @BjornLomborg zdnet.com/au/geo-enginee…

via Janetter for Mac

Hello, Monday. Yes, for those who haven’t been paying attention, I’m in San Francisco and operating on PDT.

via Janetter for Mac

Mentally and physically exhausted.

@SnarkyPlatypus @Idealaw I’m departing this conversation now. It’s for the best.

@Idealaw @SnarkyPlatypus Everyone should be banned from the internet, except the police.

@mirandadevine Yes, I was surprised that @JohnBirmingham and I were worthwhile too. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mirandadevine

@Idealaw Excellent, an anecdote about a sample with N=1, and nothing about the times they hunted for days. THAT’S SCIENCE RIGHT THERE.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Idealaw

I’ll just reply to a couple tweets from the past 24 hours now, ‘cos I’m kinda exhausted. And the river flows on.

via Janetter for Mac

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. For a change (and an experiment) it’s about geo-engineering to tackle climate change.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh look, an amenity.

Things I learned at Consilium #1: Clive Palmer is almost universally regarded as a joke of a human being.

via Janetter for Mac

I shall wrap up the production of the “Patch Monday” podcast before calling it a night. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac

@ICSF Thank you. This is my third time at your hotel, and every time it’s been excellent. You cured meats are irresistible.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ICSF

Well, the press and analysts at in San Francisco have been suitably cocktail-recepted. I’m now back at my desk.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m registered. I’ll go to this reception now, tweetlessly, and return in a couple hours to finish the podcast and do some other things.

via Janetter for Mac

@garthk Um, and a straight 240V pinout converter allows you to use ANY electrical item while carrying ONE object. Specialist devices FTL.

Mobile: Walk to Moscone Centre to register, then back to the hotel. Few tweets, ‘cos I haven’t organised local mobile data yet.

via Janetter for Mac

Sun plan, remainder: Freshen up; register for VMware’s event; cocktails; finish “Patch Monday” podcast; early night, SFO time.

via Janetter for Mac

So, as I expected, as soon as I properly reconnect to the grid my schedule turns into something fairly chaotic. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh great my phone is deciding to not register to the network properly.

via Janetter for Mac

For those who don’t understand arithmetic, it’s coming up to 1600 Sunday afternoon here.

via Janetter for Mac

So, I’m checked into the InterContinental San Francisco, and have a little over an hour to freshen up before, um, cocktails.

Contact made with chauffeur, who’s just gone to collect the car. Once he’s delivered me to the hotel he’s off to Burning Man with a coup …

is down to 6% as I stand at the carousel.

via Plume for Android

Touchdown San Francisco.

via Cloudhopper

So is down to 8%. Powering down again.

via Cloudhopper

Now we seem to be taxiing to Nevada.

via Cloudhopper

Still on the ground at LAX, on a taxiway somewhere. Takeoff rescheduled to 1330 PDT, almost 40 mins away. One hour late.

via Cloudhopper

Transmitters off. Next stop San Francisco.

via Cloudhopper

@michaelneale Thanks, though we have a Boeing 757. Much like a ride-on mower.

via Cloudhopper

Thwarted. Every shop and vending machine in LAX T4 has sold out of adapters. Lots of phone and iPad chargers though, and headphones.

via Plume for Android

Right. I packed my US power adapter in my checked luggage, and the airport shop is out of stock. I may go silent earlier than planned.

Waiting for another flight, 3of 3, Los Angeles instagr.am/p/OzRr3EiFiu/

And for my next trick, 1230 PDT AA2005 LAX-SFO. That’s in 90 minutes.

via Cloudhopper

America, I am in you (again).

via Cloudhopper

Touchdown Los Angeles. There’ll be few tweets until I’ve organised local mobile data.
