You know, listening back to it, I think episode 15 of “The 9pm Edict” was one of the best. stilgherrian.com/edict/00015/

I love how Ms Rinehart’s idea of an “advanced economy” is digging rocks out of the ground. More Neolithic, I’d have thought.

@paulwallbank Hang on. Is this the Festival of Dangerous Ideas? I’m in that, so obviously it’s good. Germaine Greer is my warm-up act.

RT @Hippopeteamus: ‘cosmo’ would be even better [This is possibly true, and I thank you.]

via Janetter for Mac

@zennith That’s precisely why I think it’s misdirecting efforts into focusing on internet and “social” tools instead of social support.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zennith

RT @iain_chalmers: But nobody does electro-bullying anymore, these days it’s all dubstep-bullying.

via Janetter for Mac

@vealmince European practice, Sir. Reverse use of “.” and “,” in numbers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vealmince

I think I’ll start using “electro-” rather than “cyber-” to highlight how stupid it is.

via Janetter for Mac

Can we please stop calling it “cyberbullying”, folks? It’s “just” bullying, whether done by Facebook or notes in the sports locker.

I’ve decided not to do the dinner after all tonight. Not in the mood for a large group.

Secrets of a Good Thai Lunch #1: Everything is more Very Thai if you put a fried egg on top.

via Janetter for Mac

Has anyone coined the word “Ginaverse” yet?

via Janetter for Mac

People who post stumbleupon links.

via Janetter for Mac

@ssharwood Then you’re too subtle for me. That said, I’m jet lagged to buggery. And vice versa.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

@ssharwood Is it the reference to Gosling being on Google’s list?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

RT @ssharwood: I’ve been too subtle. [I find this very hard to believe.]

via Janetter for Mac

Darling Quarter free Wi-Fi is a good idea. Except 512kb/s max speed is shite. I’ll use my own thanks.

Right. This can only be fixed with Thai food. Mobile.

New blog post: “Talking internet bullying (again) on Balls Radio, FM 99.3”, with last night’s audio. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

Call me old-fashioned, but I reckon that when it comes to handing power to people with guns then critical thinking is paramount.

via Janetter for Mac

I hope I haven’t mangled @leslienassar’s argument, but there’s a severe lack of critical thinking from the government side in this one.

via Janetter for Mac

MT @leslienassar: Talk about solving crimes with data retention… should we also discuss crimes that are only possible with data retention?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @leslienassar: Did she cite any UNsolved crimes that would have been solved with increased data retention? Not so much.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @leslienassar: Roxon cited a solved, 20 year old murder case as the reason for increasing data retention. She’s no Denny Crane.

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelmeloni I think that’s most unfair on @DBCDEgov, given that a department can only do what the law and budget constraints permit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelmeloni

So Keith Besgrove of @DBCDEgov will presumably be sacked for ageist remarks and not understanding societal comms trends, right?

@Gwyntaglaw @foomeister Hah. No, US TSA did not leave any complimentary mints. Or even offer a cigarette afterwards.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Gwyntaglaw

@6564828 And @AppDotNet could be “worse”, since it’s got a way of adding attributes to messages to assist automation. IT IS THE END TIME.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

@6564828 Gawd, you’re following people ever worse than me? Poor thing!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

@6564828 So, my tweet immediately before that one says…? Or should I send you a scroll bar?

@snare This was an el cheapo 50-cent padlock. I reckon even I could pick it. When drunk.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to snare

Thank you, US TSA, for putting my clothes etc back exactly as I’d packed them. And for not stealing my bottle of Californian merlot.

via Janetter for Mac

Hah! Just found a note INSIDE my suitcase from US TSA saying it was inspected. They picked the lock (easy) but thoughtfully re-locked it.

@ozdj @igbtys Maybe a few more employees need to say “No, I won’t, I don’t want to look like an idiot.” Employees aren’t slaves.
