@romant I find that hard to believe. There’s a link to a standard MP3 file on that page, and in the podcast feed. @RNmediareport

@JohnBirmingham @sylmobile I’ll have to think about it. I’m flattered, obviously, but it’s a big commitment.

@en_gy One of these things is much wetter than the other.

@Tullo So am I, but he’s proven himself selfish and unable to follow directions. In an emergency he’s a liability. Lose him.

I had already decided that if we had an accident, Alex wouldn’t exactly be receiving positive assistance. I have his full name.

via Plume for Android

Touchdown Sydney. No thanks to Alex in seat 21B, next to Brandon in 21A, who thinks “no electronic devices” doesn’t apply to him.

via Plume for Android

Boarded. See you in Sydney. Transmitters off.

I have filed a story for @zdnetaustralia. So there.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: @paulwallbank @NickHodgeMSFT @stilgherrian I going to DERPCON 2. [Is that all? On Tuesday I went to about DERPCON 8.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: Like war correspondents holed up in a hotel room. @stilgherrian @paulwallbank twitpic.com/aucjiq

RT @paulwallbank: Note to self - you will never get work done when sitting with @stilgherrian @gusworldau and @dobes on a Friday afternoon.

So, lunch is done and I’ve got one more story to write, as well as a few other bits and pieces. Excellent.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s interesting being in a room full of people who can cope with words like “skeuomorphism” being dropped casually.

Hmmm… I don’t think I can get all the chicken to fit.

via Janetter for Mac

So that’s my spot for ABC @RNmediareport done. Broadcast 1730 nationally, also podcastified and internetstreamerated.

via Janetter for Mac

@grechj I haven’t formed an opinion on it yet. I’d want to use the platform for six weeks (habituation time) first. @zdnetaustralia @shanemo

via Janetter for Mac in reply to grechj

@grechj “Brave”? Huh? But no, I haven’t had a chance to use Windows 8 in anger yet. @zdnetaustralia @shanemo

via Janetter for Mac in reply to grechj

New schedule item: At 1130 I’m recording an insert to be used in this afternoon’s @RNmediareport. Providing Skype over conference LAN works.

via Janetter for Mac

There’ll be more on the Windows 8 interface design with @shanemo and @BTRoam on the next “Patch Monday” podcast.

RT @purserj: Sorry, how the hell is talking about TAbbotts behaviour as a student politician an anti-catholic campaign? [Carbon tax.]

via Janetter for Mac

It’s even harder to take a security company seriously when the link doesn’t actually work.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s hard to take a security company seriously when their media release says “log on to…” but it’s just a link with no login required.

via Janetter for Mac

@GreenJ You hit a stud? I wasn’t aware you were at uni with Tony Abbott! Respect.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

I think I will use the term “cloud scale” in the article I’m currently writing.

@joshgnosis Perhaps someone could ask David Van Gend when, specifically, he decided to be straight.

I am heading toward the media operations room for the 0700 breakfast. I suspect it’ll be quiet.

@sroc The link worked OK in Janetter, so I’m guessing it’s a client-side issue.

RT @ozdj: Why do garbage trucks, in any city of any country, all smell exactly the same? [Carbon tax.]

@SnarkyPlatypus Néanmoins, vous devez accepter que personne ne l’ovaire a été impliqué.

@leslienassar Orly? I haven’t even looked at that side of the event. That sounds more expensive than your average ticket booking fee, yeah?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

Dear Vendors, your products and services are not “offerings”, because you’re not giving them to me. You’re charging money. Stop the con.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, the full Festival of Dangerous Ideas website now has individual session details. Including mine on 29 Sep. fodi.sydneyoperahouse.com/#i-share-there…

@jendudley You mean here at ? I poked my head in and was… afraid.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

@jendudley What you say is true. And now let us try to forget that this conversation ever happened.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

@jendudley This is true. I wonder if that traffic spike would be visible in, say, Telstra BigPond’s performance data.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

@jendudley What on EARTH are people going to do in that minute between clocking off work and being able to buy an iPhone?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

@QuixoticGuy @badgirlofrockxx Whacko. I am so thrilled to have Mistress Insomnia as such a close friend. Sigh.

Oh look. I’m wide awake. FFS.
