@franksting Oh bother. That’s what I get for trusting a source. I cry now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@ryancross @NathanaelB Ah! Well, I did just finally email a couple friends, but if there’s no takers my 0900 tomorrow you’re on.

Annoying forgotten audio editing completed.

via Janetter for Mac

Suddenly remembering some audio editing I had to do today. Unimpressed.

@michaelmeloni Well, I suppose it might have been more fruitful if I’d actually looked properly.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelmeloni

Hmmm. I still need a date for the Festival of Dangerous Ideas opening event tomorrow night. fodi.sydneyoperahouse.com/#the-delusion-…

@snerdish Can you draw me a diagram of that?

@engochick I live in a strange fantasy world, inhabited by trolling rosellas and a little too much wine.

“AFP led team seize fake credit cards worth $37.5 million”? No, Minister, that’s their potential fraud value. ministerhomeaffairs.gov.au/Mediareleases/…

Plodding through this cesspit of email. That’s a comment on my ability to empty it rather than on the emails I get sent. Mostly.

@abctech @faldo @jendudley Cool, I’ll have to check it out another time tho. I have errands and a lunch now.

via Plume for Android in reply to NickRossTech

And the @DownloadABC recording is done.

via Plume for Android

They’re not letting @jendudley into the Brisbane studio. Can’t say I blame them.

via Plume for Android

You see all sorts of weird people in the ABC foyer.

via Janetter for Mac

@riskybusiness @joshgnosis You should stop this fact-checking immediately. It’s terribly old-fashioned. We crowdsource all the facts now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

Lurking in the ABC foyer because early. Ping @marcfennell

via Janetter for Mac

@pc0 @608Harris I won’t have time, sorry. Errands then 1200 lunch elsewhere. Raincheck?

via Plume for Android in reply to pc0

@dr_nic @DownloadABC @jendudley @marcfennell Now now, I know how to do radio. And how to fit a media outlet’s style. Mostly.

via Plume for Android in reply to dr_nic

Making my way gently to ABC Ultimo, there to record @DownloadABC with @marcfennell and @jendudley … and I’ll have some food on the way.

Hotmail limits passwords to 16 characters, even if you type in more. Clever, what? arstechnica.com/security/2012/…

via Janetter for Mac

@grechj Oh I’m sure that’s not the reason. The US defence establishment is pure as the driven snow!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to grechj

US generals agree cybersecurity is a most dangerous threat, but many openly admit to knowing little about it. defensetech.org/2012/09/26/cyb…

via Janetter for Mac

@ozjimbob Possibly we are in furious agreement. Those questions were talking points for @DownloadABC. Check the blog post I tweeted.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozjimbob

@chrisbrownie Well if I’ll be the first to go under the new regime, why should I bother changing my behaviour? @bigmac

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

@chrisbrownie So you’re one of Them, Chris? Explains a few things. @bigmac

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

@leslienassar They’re going to send the van around for you later this morning.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

RT @bigmac: Hackers cost business thousands | News | NT News buff.ly/PnAkGS [sometimes I just enjoy reading the comments!!] [True.]

via Janetter for Mac

@ozjimbob Hang on. I don’t think anyone’s saying there isn’t a “scene”. Open-ended “How’s it doing?” then “How can we improve?”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozjimbob

RT @leslienassar Negafeelpinions toward Startup Kulcha will dissipate on exposure to the Sacred Flower of Promises. BRING US THE POLLENIZER!

via Janetter for Mac

@TenguTech See, you should probably be ashamed of yourself now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TenguTech

@michaelmeloni @chieftech Indeed. No rule says a new business on the internet has to be done a certain way. Don’t tell them that though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelmeloni

@BrigadierSlog Friendship is one thing. Redefining the entire field of electrochemistry could be somewhat trickier. But your plan has merit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@chieftech Well, I’ve heard that opinion before, but I don’t think it’s a very sensible opinion for me to have.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chieftech

RT @BrigadierSlog: Dare I suggest a start-up to automatically filter out and destroy superfluous start-ups? [Dare? I recommend it!]

via Janetter for Mac

See also my post from March 2008, “Jason Calacanis and the Evil Cult of the Internet Start-up” stilgherrian.com/religion/john_…

via Janetter for Mac

I mean, if someone opens a new restaurant or a trucking company, we don’t call it a “start-up” and take on all that fast-growth malarkey.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe I’ll just explain that the start-up scene generally is a toxic, dangerous cult and should be bulldozed into a landfill.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. I have no opinion on “How’s the start-up scene in Australia? What could we do to improve it?” Had anyone got one they can lend me?

via Janetter for Mac

@voiceofapollo Well, in Jan 2012 Myspace had more traffic (unique browsers) than Tumblr or Google+ so not dead. Looks interesting now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to voiceofapollo

@SnarkyPlatypus Ah yes, the sort of people of whom I am generally not a fan. They should all be bulldozed into landfill.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I choose to assume that’s not me you’re talking about. I don’t think I could do anything “relentlessly”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Since I have to wait for the Australian Federal Police to wake up, I might as well prepare my Opinions for @DownloadABC.

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan: Write for @CSO_Australia; 1030 @DownloadABC recording; 1200 Alcatel-Lucent lunch; post-lunch research; a night of MOAR MEAT.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Je vous suggère de jeter toutes les choses dans le port.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. La Maîtresse de l’insomnie est d’être une salope à nouveau. Je vais remédier à cela avec gourmandise. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@sylmobile I believe they are all being recorded. Oh well, I’ll have to invite someone else.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

@sylmobile I believe you’re going to @bunjaree this weekend? You will therefore not be good people to offer tickets to my gig?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

Thu plan, draft: Write for @CSO_Australia; 1030 @DownloadABC recording; 1200 Alcatel-Lucent lunch; afternoon TBA; a night of MOAR MEAT.

So this is nearly 0500, so this is nearly when I am awake. Sigh. Mistress Insomnia, I am not impressed.
