Turning off the internet because it’s stupid.

via Janetter for Mac

I mean, the PM’s job is to personally sort out people’s problems with Twitter, right? IT’S NOT LIKE SHE HAS A COUNTRY TO RUN.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear @JuliaGillard my Twitter client isn’t working properly, have you got some free time on Friday to have a chat and a photo-op?

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. I just discovered a whole heap of DMs that Janetter has decided not to show me. Bonus. [sulks]

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes My favourite moment was when they dumped all the DMT into the air conditioning and turned the music up.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Resorting to stronger drugs.

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite Yeah people have said that before. But you only had to see 1’45”.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: Yes. I call it “Soylent Green”. [Oh well played.]

@voiceofapollo Thank you, I think. Well, I’m around all week, so do feel free to try and grab me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to voiceofapollo

@nigelwadsworth I can’t think as far ahead as tomorrow. There’s a media dinner, but Microsoft doesn’t micro-manage media embeds.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nigelwadsworth

Media breakfast 0715 what even.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce Thank you. Yes, she is. It’s all very, very scary.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Fear not, Professor Pesce, there’s THREE MOAR DAZE to go!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

I have returned to my hotel room because the 0400 start the the rapid-fire bullshit have both made an impact.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “OK, femtoburger me!”

via Plume for Android

I think I want to cry.

via Plume for Android

Oh no. Prizes of helicopter rides for certain kinds of tweets on the hashtag.

via Janetter for Mac

Wait. That was all just Act One? WAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!11!!!

via Janetter for Mac

Did no-one around a meeting room table somewhere stop and ask “Why would we want to do this?”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ssharwood: Changing the world isn’t their job description. Changing server configurations is, mostly, IMHO.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, so he’s somehow “controlling” the music with a Kinect. Maybe two variables out of 20 over a canned backing.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh dear. A “performance artist”.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BI_Monkey: l was hoping for free space cookies, but it looks like the keynote speaker ate them all

via Janetter for Mac

“The Hubble Telescope has given us an ontological awakening!”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @tikiroa: They should have sent us to sea world instead of making us watch this crazy mess [YES!]

via Janetter for Mac

NO DO NOT APPLAUD HIM HE IS A CHARLATAN.

via Janetter for Mac

For those not in the room, watch “To Understand is to Perceive Patterns” by Jason Silva on YouTube and you’ll understand.

via Janetter for Mac

The feeling that I am feeling right this very moment is the reason why you should not hand me a gun today.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @voiceofapollo: Hey dude, this is all style and no content. [Exactly this too. Sigh.]

via Janetter for Mac

Oh of course some tosser up the back shouted “Woo!”

via Janetter for Mac

Sorry, folks, but being CONTINUALLY AMAZED BY ALL THE THINGS is not insightful or wisdom, it’s a mental illness.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @trib: Oh, his site declares him to be an “epiphany addict”. [I don’t normally say “THIS!”, but… THIS!]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: Oh wow. That guy has every clever teenage drug users library from the early 1990s. [Indeed. ]

via Janetter for Mac

Craig_Harvey Jason Silva had to show us a video of himself talking really fast because even he couldn’t keep up the first time

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 4:57 PM, Sep 11th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

Yeah maybe cut back on the amphetamines, Jason.

via Janetter for Mac

Namechecks so far: James Gleick, Richard Dawkins, Ray Kurzweil, Terence McKenna, Van Gogh, Beethoven, Freeman Dyson, Neitsche.

via Janetter for Mac

And now, a short film by Mr Silva about Radical Openness.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. He’s quoting Tom Robbins. So that’s OK then. And Terence McKenna. [deep breath, deep breath]

via Janetter for Mac

This Jason Silva guy? I’m afraid that I already want to punch him in the face very, very hard.

via Janetter for Mac

@PointZeroOne I don’t characterise regional variations or sociolects as “butchering”. It’s clear “resiliency” is a thing in this tribe.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PointZeroOne

If I’m meant to be in some media area rather than mixed in with the proles can someone please tell me where that is thank you.

via Janetter for Mac

Extended commercial for Windows Server 2012 ends. Next up, a keynote from Jason Silva. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Sil…

via Janetter for Mac

I stand corrected, @lucasng. “Resiliency” seems to be a variation used in this sociolect. grammarist.com/usage/resilien… @PointZeroOne

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lucasng

Um, virtuaised IP using GRE isn’t anything new, surely? Oh look! RFC 1701, dated October 1994. tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1701

via Janetter for Mac

No, I’m not yelling at the stage, @PointZeroOne. I’m in the stalls, sulking, slowly drifting towards actual tears.

via Janetter for Mac

THE WORD IS “RESILIENCE” NOT “RESILIENCY” WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE.

via Janetter for Mac

General UI question: Who decided car fuel gauges was the best way to display performance data? ‘Cos it strikes me that it’s not.

“Cloud OS: Empowers people-centric IT. Don’t call it consumerisation of IT, because that’s about the device not people. Uhuh.

ANOTHER CUSTOMER VIDEO ABOUT BEING SUCCESSFUL WITH MODERN APPS I AM SO HAPPY BUT IS IT CLOUD SCALE THAT IS THE IMPORTANT THING.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, those in the developer ghetto are meant to be using and not whinging about the overall event hashtag . RTFM FFS.

via Janetter for Mac

Is there some sort of hashtag apartheid, where the event is not the event but another event? Goodness.

via Janetter for Mac

“When we think about modern apps we think about cloud scale… It needs to be hybrid and extensible.” [deep breath, deep breath]

via Janetter for Mac

“High-quality enterprise-grade platform for business-critical processes!” All of it! All at once! HOW GOOD IS THAT.

via Janetter for Mac

MOAR TELEVISION COMMERCIAL.

BUT HOW MANY PARSECS DOES IT DO?

via Janetter for Mac

The only thing that has happened so far is lot of extended shouty self-praise for Windows Server 20012 just how good is it really.

via Janetter for Mac

@Froosh Spotted. Three rows back, three slots to the right, black t-shirt. Thanks, but I’m good for now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Froosh

“Make sure you have this on your resume if you want to have a long career in IT,” he says, scaring the workerdroids no end.

via Janetter for Mac

That’s not the first time he’s said “cloud scale”. That’s even bigger than “web scale”, right?

via Janetter for Mac

The word, Sir, is “resilience”, not “resiliency”. Even in Queensland.

via Janetter for Mac

“I don’t see any workloads known to man that cannot be ported to the Microsoft platform at this point,” says a bloke in the video.

via Janetter for Mac

“Revolutionary”! *drink

OK, I have Wi-Fi. But the power strip in the seat is full of lies and no electricity.

People who occupy the seats in the dedicated power recharge zone but who do not need the power.

Now a geek is on stage and he said “Woo!” and “Make some noise!” Kill me now.

via Cloudhopper

I’ve got an IPv6 address but nothing is reachable. Sigh.

via Cloudhopper

In one of the arenas. No 3G data. No IP address obtainable on event Wi-Fi. Disgruntled.

via Cloudhopper

Also, the printed program and the signage are in complete disagreement as to venue assignments.

via Plume for Android

Oh good. The schedule I was sent and have planned my week around does not match the reality on the ground.

via Plume for Android

A hot shower has helped me forget, for a moment, that I’ve been awake since 0400 today.

via Janetter for Mac

As usual the shit 3G data at SYD meant that the stream dropped out during that radio spot so I have no recording. Do you, @1057darwin?

via Plume for Android

@Tadlette @1057darwin I’m fairly sure I said the opposite to that.

via Plume for Android in reply to Tadlette

On hold for ABC @1057darwin to talk “trolling” with Kate O’Toole, and you can listen at abc.net.au/darwin/

via Janetter for Mac

I had planned to get thru the security checkpoint firast, but (how unusual!) the queue at BoganJet check-in is halfway to Goulburn.

via Janetter for Mac

Trying to find a quiet spot for this radio piece. I have 10 mins. And I’m in the check-in area. HAHAHA!

@purserj @R_Chirgwin Why the fuck is it important because a footballer was involved? How about women being beaten daily? Worry for them.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

@purserj @R_Chirgwin I really don’t care about the details of this individual case. People are harassed every day, on and offline. Yawn.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

@R_Chirgwin Erm, no, if you have prima facie evidence that a crime has been committed then a subpoena or warrant is easy for police to get.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

There seems to be some lame-arse pop culture reference that stupid people know about.

It’s also a sad state of affairs when the NSW Police Minister isn’t aware of the law that exist before opening his arse to speak.

I see @KirrinMcKechnie is posting some photos of the Nauru concentration camp, such that it is.

That reminds me of my “Stay alert, ye nameless, toiling animals” from 2007 even though it’s a Godwin job. stilgherrian.com/politics/stay_…

via Janetter for Mac

It does not bode well when you have to explain the basic principles of western democracy to a government minister.

via Janetter for Mac

Yes we do, @Steve_Lockstep, because we have a NSW police minister wanting to execute dawn raids on people who say bad things. Scary.
