I’m very tempted to just hide in the hotel room forever.

The internet is making me nauseous.

bastardsheep Does this mean we’ll soon have a sarong-off between @mpesce @stilgherrian? Remind me to not attend. [cough] :P

@mpesce I can’t answer that just yet, I’m still dealing with the trauma.

via Plume for Android in reply to mpesce

So @mpesce now has zero moral right to criticise anything I post online ever.

OH: “They used to say that Australia rode on the sheep’s back. Now we ride on Gina Rinehart’s back.”

They want head from @chrisberg wtf?

That figure on Aust retail includes, say, cars but not a book bought on Amazon ‘cos that’s not an Australian sale.

via Plume for Android

Consensus over lunch is that Australian retailers are Luddites. Years behind.

@BXGD Not required to take notes, but I choose to.

Online counts for 5 to 6% of Aust retail spend, compared with 8 to 9% in US, says Frost & Sullivan.

Today is about retail technology. Buzzword du jour is “omnichannel”.

RT @eventbrite @stilgherrian @trib We don’t spam. Ever. :) [Good to hear, will chat with the client.]

Now I know we’re all having fun n’all, but I have to go to Wildfire Restaurant now.

RT @tweetingtechno: My big data nerds at work use Meet-Up, and they’re pretty savvy and concerned about security. [Ta, will take a look.]

I am currently being incited to commit arson.

via Janetter for Mac

@trib Well, these guys have read Eventbrite’s T&Cs and they don’t like ‘em. Yes, WordPress options will probably be it, but there’s so many!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to trib

I like this client. They respect and value their relationship with their customers. They are not fodder to be tracked.

via Janetter for Mac

Eventbrite is out, @trib. Client’s requirement spec is that a third party doesn’t get to spam their customers. They’d rather pay money.

via Janetter for Mac

Has anyone done a recent survey of event bookings software, either SaaS or perhaps a WordPress plug-in? Asking for a friend. Well, client.

@franksting “Pikies”? Gawd, it’s been a while since I’ve heard that word! And you’re right, it might have been pikies stealing the copper.

I should mention that @RightToKnowAu is an @OpenAustralia project, full of democracy-hacking goodness and some pixels. righttoknow.org.au

Story filed for @crikey_news. Train at Strathfield. The morning is back on track. (Ha!) Now, to look at the email… Yeah that’s jinxed it.

via Janetter for Mac

OK. Writing now. You should probably be getting on with your work too.

BernardKeane Social media take on the netball result controversy: both Press Gallery and MPs are lying, here’s a link to a kitten to prove it.

@johnb78 I wonder how @eVent_cinemas would cope in the event of a fire. How often are emergency drills held? @mumbrella

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnb78

@johnb78 After all, @eVent_cinemas only has to do two things: Put images on screen. Sell overpriced confectionary. So a 50% fail. @mumbrella

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnb78

@johnb78 Possibly, but @eVent_cinemas seems piss-poor if a movie can look shit for half an hour without anyone noticing. @mumbrella

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnb78

What I find most amusing are the comments on the @mumbrella yarns that are so obviously @eVent_cinemas sock puppets. Welcome to 1993.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. Apparently the orthography is @eVent_cinemas, because random bullshit capitalisation makes you cool. Or something.

via Janetter for Mac

Looks like @rosieryan and @snurb_dot_info have been bitten by the same bad thing.

via Janetter for Mac

Ha! Event Cinemas says @mumbrella was “screaming”, “carrying on like a lunatic”. But he was recording it… mumbrella.com.au/skyfail-2-list…

@typendlebury @thornae Good. Except now I need the gin. And @expectproblems needs to wake up a bit and try that “joke” again.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to typendlebury

Is it too early for gin?

@R_Chirgwin Generator has been started ~0630. Battery was at 43.2V. I did hear it run last night though, but I don’t know for how long.

via Janetter for Mac

The sheer delight you feel when the hot shower stops because there’s no longer any electricity for the water pumps. That. Ping @R_Chirgwin
