Can we deport Senator Xenophon for interfering in Australian politics? Can we add further names to the list?

Do people actually expect me to read all this email?

via Janetter for Mac

@jpwarren Yes, the SEKRIT information is usually quite banal.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jpwarren

I haven’t watched the news, of course, but just how bad are the cybers and are they worse than the Prime Minister’s sausage?

Dear Novotel, “while stocks last” does not quite convey freshness. instagr.am/p/V3eYxviFlI/

I think I’ll pop to the bar for a quick beer and a snack before returning to my room to deal with Things.

via Janetter for Mac

I shan’t be going to the “Intel’s 2-in-1 Ultrabook Superheroes Night”. I have too much to do including, it is hoped, sleep.

via Janetter for Mac

@ninaspringle All should be become clear if you see tonight’s TV news stories.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ninaspringle

RT @dobes: “slow death interspersed with alcohol and drugs” [Correct, that’s journalism right there. In a nutjob.]

via Janetter for Mac

Was Julia Gillard trying to out-sausage Tony Abbott today? Or Kevin Rudd?

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes Journalism is such a bullshit way to make a “living” anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@erkpod I suspect the XLR inputs are working, but you’re right. No equipment here. And, indeed, the scheduling window has been lost.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to erkpod

Bloody hell. I seem to have forgotten how to copy and paste now.

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor Quite possibly, but Mistress Insomnia has been running amok for quite some time. Even I have my limits.

via Janetter for Mac

freshening up before dinner. Assuming I want to go to dinner. I’m so, so tired.

via Janetter for Mac

@erkpod The Zoom H4n has suffered a couple of knocks. I suspect lingering physical damage. Seemed to lose the mic switching 90° to 120°.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to erkpod

@juhasaarinen His name is Taiga and you should show some respect.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@dobes @ClaireVM There is a certain fatalism about it up here, yes. But hey we’ll sort it when I’m in Sydney some time soon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

“It hasn’t been a pleasant day out there.” instagr.am/p/V3ObTniFtC/

via Instagram

OK, y Zoom H4n rooted. Right-hand mic not activating. Stereo light not lighting. Even after a factory reset. Podcast postponed. Cry.

via Janetter for Mac

Hmmm. My Zoom H4n has decided not to record in stereo mode. Have I broken a mic? The stereo light is not lit either. Baffled.

via Janetter for Mac

Speed interviews done. Time to prep for a podcast recording at 1630 AEST. But I have just been handed a cocktail.

via Janetter for Mac

Now come the one-on-ones. Six x 15-min interviews back to back. An intense 90 minutes. Just as my afternoon slump starts.

via Plume for Android

RT @j_hutch: Is there a clown face in the middle now? [Kittens. It’s kittens all the way down. ]

via Janetter for Mac

The data centre has moved from the centre of companies’ network diagrams.

via Janetter for Mac

Symantec’s @seankopelke positioning mobility, cloud etc being means to the end of productivity. S’s job providing confidence to do it.

via Janetter for Mac

Being typecast and mocked.

via Janetter for Mac

“Over 90% of respondents deployed firewalls, anti-spam filters and anti-virus software”. cert.gov.au

Lunch is about to happen, but we were just told that the journalists will be located onto a bus and shipped… somewhere. I see.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Anthony_Caruana: Did @stilgherrian just get rickrolled? [Yeah, look, fuck off. @ssharwood]

via Janetter for Mac

Pro Tip: When talking to data centre guys, don’t refer to data centres as “glorified network cupboards”. Grief follows swiftly.

via Janetter for Mac

bigmac How will these guys be affected by Software Defined Data Centres in the future? Go on, ask them!

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 12:51 PM, Feb 18th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Emerson is doing the modular data centre thing for the NBN. So that makes it into a news story, right, editors?

via Janetter for Mac

Modular containerised data centres are a thing. Built in factory and shipped out. Nice helicopter photo.

via Janetter for Mac

Ross Hammond from Emerson Network Power now. Data centres etc need to roll out within a year now, not 2 or 3. [Again, not new?]

via Janetter for Mac

To be clear, I said that before Briscoe started. A’l this seems incremental this year. Fine, but had to be exciting. @Anthony_Caruana

via Janetter for Mac

I’m having trouble identifying clear new insights in this panel. Maybe it’s just me. Adrian Briscoe, Kroll Ontrack data recovery now.

via Janetter for Mac

@bigmac People could even copy those details from their lanyard.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bigmac

Ian Raper, Riverbed now.

via Janetter for Mac

bigmac First slide of every presentation should have your Name, Title and Company. Always.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 12:26 PM, Feb 18th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Donut as a Service! Thanks, Mark Troselj!

via Janetter for Mac

Mark Troselj from NetSuite now, looking remarkably healthy… considering.

via Janetter for Mac

“Wireless clutter” was his prediction, and managing that will be the challenge.

via Janetter for Mac

“People will be using a lot more wireless,” says the man selling wireless.

via Janetter for Mac

“The New Normal” seems to be the same new normal that we have normally been told is new for the last two years. This is normal.

via Janetter for Mac

Steve Coad of Aruba Networks now. “The New Normal” is his theme… many different consumer-chosen devices, connecting wirelessly.

via Janetter for Mac

These are the Wi-Fis I can see here at Kickstart Forum. twitpic.com/c4osls

via Janetter for Mac

Next up, “Networking & Data Centres Vendor Session”, beginning with Tony Simonsen, MD of Equinix Australia. kickstartforum.com/sessions/detai…

via Janetter for Mac

“The Cyber Crime and Security Survey Report” launched by Attorney-General just now is at CERT Australia. cert.gov.au

via Janetter for Mac

@stevemcilhatton Yes. Each speaker gets their 5-min starter, then 10 mins with each table of 5-6 journos. Time in day plan for follow-ups.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stevemcilhatton

OH: “Dog poo is the bread and butter of local government. Oh, let me rephrase that…”

via Janetter for Mac

BTW, the burst-then-gaps pattern is ‘cos each presenter gets 5 mins on stage before they hit the speed-dating tables for discussion.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah Vend must be a cool, modern software company because the slide shows us environments with blonde-wood furniture.

via Janetter for Mac

@adam_turner Oh is THAT what this Harlem Shake thing is about? Yeah I’m persuaded to go back to watching TV and media and stuff. Not.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to adam_turner

Vaughan Rowsell and His Moustache from Vend now. “Oniine retail operating system for bricks and mortar retailers.” With moustaches.

via Janetter for Mac

Disturbing video is disturbing.

via Janetter for Mac

Michael Folmer Hansen, Zendesk now. He is showing us a photo of him reclining on a leather couch. Something about “personal service”.

via Janetter for Mac

“Wall St rewards subscription business models at multiples above traditional models”? So, that’s the Bubble right there, right kids?

via Janetter for Mac

John Ruthven from Zuora now, “Help[ing] you succeed in the Subscription Economy”. “Seismic shift”! Drink!

via Janetter for Mac

[Pitching Xero as a “social business platform” for small business, eh? That’s the language? There’ll be tears before bedtime!]

via Janetter for Mac

[Why was I not aware that Peter Thiel had invested in Xero? WHY WAS I NOT TOLD? Oh. Probably deleted the media release.]

via Janetter for Mac

Chris Ridd from Xero now. “Single ledger is disruptive”, says the slide. [Once more, “disruption” is a word of goodness. Sigh.]

via Janetter for Mac

LogMeIn now has Cubby as a cloud file sharing services. [This is obviously a big competitive field this year. Files.]

via Janetter for Mac

Notes that tech decisions are being made by line managers, not IT managers, especially in SMBs. [Indeed.]

via Janetter for Mac

Next up is Andy Farquharson from LogMeIn, who begins with a Berocca reference and a factoid about the cloud being here.

via Janetter for Mac

And so it begins. “Software & SaaS Vendor Session.” First up, James Norwood from KANA Software. kickstartforum.com/sessions/detai…

via Janetter for Mac

I detect a theme to these little gifts… instagr.am/p/V2YnMgiFrv/

@cheshireb Thank you. Though “patch(y) money” was the problem. ;)

Mon plan: Blog thing; Kickstart Forum kickstartforum.com/kickstart-2013/ Day Two; podcast recording; “Intel’s 2-in-1 Ultrabook Superheroes Night”.

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, I think that’s one of the best podcasts I’ve ever made. And it’s as valid today as a year ago. stilgherrian.com/edict/00019/

via Janetter for Mac

So a year ago tomorrow I did a podcast that included a modest proposal for dealing with things like stilgherrian.com/edict/00019/

I dreamed of a TV news story with the Attorney-General in a big cyber-room with big cyber-screens telling us about all the cybers.

via Janetter for Mac

drewtoothpaste Libertarians should all move to Detroit to live an amazing freedom-based life without the burden of police, fire & trash service.
