Collapsing ‘cos I have an early start before a Sydney trip tomorrow. Keep on cyberin’, kids!

via Janetter for Mac

So how far up, exactly? In feet.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @intrepidfear: …and the kids macs, iPads, android tablets, Linux devices… [One thing at a time! The PM is busy with not an election!]

via Janetter for Mac

Oh dear, @intrepidfear, we’re back a decade in Penrith, are we? Well that’ll play well on all the kids’ iPhones.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @intrepidfear: look at the council web page on anything but Internet explorer. That’s where their digital fucking strategy should start

via Janetter for Mac

@australianit For those of us who don’t play cricket, what does that mean?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to australianit

So tonight the PM is launching Penrith Council’s Digital Economy Strategy? I can hardly wait to see it. Kinda.

via Janetter for Mac

@carolprobets @R_Chirgwin @bunjaree Thanks for the confirmation. He was certainly a bold little critter.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to carolprobets

So @claudiamob has nailed our tribute to Kerry Packer’s legacy right there in that one tweet.

BennettArron Some people on Twitter are surprised Bonnie Tyler is representing the UK in the Eurovision Karaoke Contest. But most don’t know who she is.

@BobGrrl @NewtonMark I know, but will you cyber with Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus? ‘Cos we wants us to cyber real hard.

I should point out that Fairfax and its employee-journalists, say, match neither of the models @paulcarr describes. And like, der.

“The future of journalism: It’s time to pick a side”, writes a passionate @paulcarr. Read it, proles! pandodaily.com/2013/03/06/the…

“Freshwater flathead”, apparently. Uhuh.

RT @pandymonium01: Most ‘e’ things are commercial or money to be made out of them. ‘Cyber’ is Robin Hood stealing from rich.

RT @jonoabroad: Ha ha ha five jobs, ha ha ha ha. That is one consultant. [Tru dat.]

via Janetter for Mac

“Western Sydney designated as an Innovative Region”, says the same PM press release. “Capitalise on opportunities of Asian Century”! Wow.

via Janetter for Mac

michaelneale @stilgherrian but think of what that innovation can produce? Buffett optimisation at rooty hill RSL via the NBN !

via Tweetbot for Mac (retweeted on 5:15 PM, Mar 7th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

PM announces “$1.5 million over 4 years” for innovation in western Sydney. $375k pa. Five median-salary jobs plus costs. Big fuckin’ woop.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dannolan: someone too ugly to be in porn [Oh. I see.]

via Janetter for Mac

What’s a “blogger”?

via Janetter for Mac

@intrepidfear Nah, I reckon we’ve got to get @702sydney presenters out of their studio and out of their comfort zone.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to intrepidfear

Still, he’s a libertarian, right? It’d all be about HIM…

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder what Senator Rand Paul would be like in bed, with that stamina.

via Janetter for Mac

Why would I do a forklift driver’s course, @RealNickHodge?

via Janetter for Mac

@KathAlbury Sure, set up a temporary studio as a base if you’re doing a few programs, but the comms are all very easy these days.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to KathAlbury

Perhaps @702sydney could chat with a certain Mr Diamond, who’s still on ABC staff, to confirm how easy outside broadcasts are.

via Janetter for Mac

@intrepidfear @702sydney Or why not every Thursday’s program, say, being from a different spot around the Sydney basin? It’s not hard.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to intrepidfear

intrepidfear @stilgherrian @702sydney It’d be better if they did a live cross next week after the PM had already left. That would be journalism….

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 4:42 PM, Mar 7th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Having produced 70+ outside broadcasts in one year alone, in the days of analog comms, I wonder why it’s such a drama for ABC radio today.

via Janetter for Mac

“Sharks deny drug allegations.”

via Janetter for Mac

Channel Nine doing a live cross to Western Sydney as if it’s fucking Timbuktu or somewhere. MInd you, @702sydney’s OB was the same.

via Janetter for Mac

@RealNickHodge I think it’s important for me to have a well-rounded education.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “What’s another word for mauve? Mauve is so… taupe. I mean, if you were red, you could be magenta. That’s a bit glamorous.”

via Janetter for Mac

There are times when I wish I wasn’t a regular at this… um… this public library.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “Do you want to see a picture of me dressed up as a bear?”

via Janetter for Mac

“Coming up: Mum addicted to Facebook.” This Channel Nine thing really is TEH OARSUM.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @JohnMcCarten: It’s also the front page of today’s West Australian. To be fair though, they only got lolcats last week [Oh Jesus wept!]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @joshgnosis: I hope they watermarked it. [Kerry’s ghost will rise to ensure that.]

via Janetter for Mac

On Channel Nine just now, “Coming up, the Harlem Shake craze”. I’m so glad they’re covering breaking news, aren’t you?
