FFS why is my computer running slower than a bulimic walrus on ketamine?

Just spent a healthy hour or so pondering cyberwonderfulness and then being interviewed by @amworldtodaypm for a story tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

You wouldn’t download a terrorist.

via Janetter for Mac

Committing a cyber incident.

RT @semiboganman: and a pistol [Yes, and I’m doing things in the correct order. BECAUSE I’M RESPONSIBLE.]

via Janetter for Mac

Fuck it. Some things can only be fixed with gin.

“Cybersecurity (and cyberbureaucracy) key for PM’s blueprint”, writes @BernardKeane crikey.com.au/2013/01/23/cyb…

Aust’s National Security Strategy, with the Aust National Cybersecurity Centre on page 40. dpmc.gov.au/national_secur…

@j_hutch Oh I was talking more about my alleged journalismings. Your every utterance is Walkley-worthy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_hutch

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Media distracted by pointless goat. Typical. [Where? WHERE?]

via Janetter for Mac

Changing all the things.

via Janetter for Mac

So @j_hutch says someone told him that the National Security Strategy is on dpmc.gov.au at midday. LOOK, MA, I’M JOURNALISMING!

Mobile: Walk to pie shop; tram to Central station; train to Redfern; walk to Australian Technology Park; 1200 meeting with “people”.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, I guess I now know what I’ll be doing for the next couple of days.

via Janetter for Mac

Dunno, @wgwau, the documents have not been posted yet. All we have is the PM’s speech and a media release saying much the same.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @wgwau: Is this to be outside of DSD and ASIO’s already massively expanded cyber capabilities? Totally separate, or just new dept?

via Janetter for Mac

It’s a handy coincidence that the @FinancialReview has been running scary cybersecurity stories all month. It’s almost as if they knew.

via Janetter for Mac

So, we’ll have a new Australian Cyber Security Centre by the end of the year. Because we don’t have any already. MOAR AGENCIES!

via Janetter for Mac

So apparently the PM is having cyber and I’ve been too busy to watch.

via Janetter for Mac

Reading a press release which sounds very, very scary indeed. Until you see the word “potentially” thrown in.

via Janetter for Mac

@alexkidman @gusworldau Good strategy, chaps. Yes, if you’re going to shiv me then fine cheeses would be an excellent distraction.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alexkidman

OH: “Trust me, when you’ve been around as many crazy short lesbians as I have, you couldn’t be a bad influence on me.”

NewtonMark I think it’s time we all admitted that the Internet has too many cats.

Not killing someone’s first- and second-born sons. Yet.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: AGE OF WONDERS. [NOT ONLY THAT BUT ON THE RADIO JUST NOW THEY SAID THE OPPOSITION HAD CALLED FOR URGENT ACTION.]

via Janetter for Mac

Watching a young person using the internets, I notice that they have amusing pictures involving cats on Facebook now. The wonders never end!

Wed plan: Loose ends (done); plan writing; meetings 1200 Aust Tech Park, 1400 Sydney CBD; write for @zdnetaustralia; evening TBA.

RT @oberonsghost: *sends 3-ply softened with aloe-vera* [Thanks, but it’s not the softness that’s the issue.]

via Janetter for Mac

Listening to a man on the radio whose worldview seems to be a series of whinges about things that nobody has told him about and it’s wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @paulwallbank: Listening to the Google earnings call – why do these people always sound like robots? [Because they are. Der.]

via Janetter for Mac

Manufacturers of single-ply toilet paper.

via Janetter for Mac

@stevemcilhatton Maybe. One hopes. Politicians busy doing useful things. Yes. Excellent idea.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stevemcilhatton

Surely if someone is described as an “outspoken <party> politician”, then all the other <party> politicians are failing somehow?

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Il est probablement le meilleur pour tout le monde si nous ne discutons pas ce que je veux que vous fassiez.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@GoGrid Thanks. I’ll be in touch some time in the next couple of weeks. I have the germ of an idea starting to form. Cheers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GoGrid

@GoGrid I’m also a happy customer, except that the ServePath support ticketing system sucks. :) But I may be in touch about a story idea.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GoGrid

@GoGrid … the “power” thing is explained in stilgherrian.com/personal/death… But I’m also one of your customers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GoGrid

@GoGrid About 2/3 is infosec, but the common thread is changing power relationships. A flavour at stilgherrian.com/media_output/ and…

Wed plan, draft: Wrap Tues loose ends; meetings 1200 Aust Tech Park, 1400 Sydney CBD; write for @zdnetaustralia; evening TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

@GoGrid Well, I’m a journalist, amongst other things. I’d want to see warts as well as nail polish. :) But “timeline” seems honourable.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GoGrid

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis troublé par votre présence à cette heure, d’autant plus que vous n’avez pas apporter du vin. Et vous.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@GoGrid It’s not a very professional history if it only includes your successes. There’s a word for what you’ve done, but it’s not history.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GoGrid

Hello, Wednesday. Today’s tweets are dedicated to Walter F Morrison, who sold his Pluto Platter to Wham-O on this day in 1957. Frisbee!
