@Paul_Murton Indeed, and much underrated. Enjoy, they’re a good crew there.

@Paul_Murton I know where you are, and if you diss these fine people I will cut you. Look up at the horizon.

Hang on. I think I just did a bad thing.

“Duty free pig lard,” motherfuckers!

I’ll be fine to tweet all this without linking to the old YouTube video.

via Janetter for Mac

@oberonsghost I don’t know the Uzi first-hand. It’s close quarters, I’m fine to do this with a Browning 9mm.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

RT @zzap: Death is closer than ever. [Congratulations. You’ve discovered “time”.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @GeordieGuy: Are ham scones a thing? [No. Fuck off.]

via Janetter for Mac

No that’s fine, @PaulCunningham, I’m sure @techAU already knows he’s just one notch above pond slime.

@katedoak I stand by my statement. And then hop into my solar car en route to my renewable cyberrave.

People who think car racing is important. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

The problem now is that a bunch of platinum-bleached folk have turned up on their little excursion to discuss Gai Waterhouse’s chances.

@expectproblems I am intrigued by this internet that you use, because it does not scroll.

@MsLods Well this is it, isn’t it! Follow-the-numbers makes it clear it’s about prompt global distribution, not retribution.

Someone’s thrown a bit of rosemary onto the fire in the pub fireplace. Beautiful scents washing the front bar.

via Janetter for Mac

@MsLods Oh, well I’ll ramp back my crankiness and look forward to seeing how they pitch themselves in this new version of their model.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MsLods

As far as I can see, @MsLods, MPAA and AFACT represent an obsolete, inefficient industry that sits between producers and their audience.

via Janetter for Mac

@MsLods When MPAA and AFACT start differentiating between producers and distributors, I’ll start treating them as credible commenters.

via Janetter for Mac

If AFACT really does see the Federal Court of Australia as just some puppet to deploy in their PR exercise, then they really are arseholes.

via Janetter for Mac

@MsLods And powering up the nation’s justice system as an “educating consumers” exercise? Is that the least bit ethical?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MsLods

@MsLods Yeah I think they must’ve gone to a different iiTrial than the one I sat in sometimes. Or are they now revealing strategy?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MsLods

@johncarneyau @TheIPA @evcricket @raaahbin Indeed, but scattergun complaining will never win over an organised approach. [shrugs]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johncarneyau

Aw diddums, @johncarneyau, so @TheIPA has a 70-year head start? Better extract the digit then and get organised! @evcricket @raaahbin

evcricket Rather than complaining about the IPA or any other advocacy group you hate, why not advocate for what you want to see? Much more productive.

@tom_cowie Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great piece. I think (feel?) it accurately portrays public perceptions. Ballarat’s a great case study.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to tom_cowie

RT @tom_cowie: @stilgherrian a lot of voters aren’t experts… [Yeah I know, and I’ll be fixing that when I’m Tzar.]

via Janetter for Mac

Best quote in @tom_cowie’s yarn: “I’m not an expert on the topic, but I just feel that…”

via Janetter for Mac

Note that @tom_cowie is not @tomcowie, at least I believe so.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @aramadge: Great feature by @tom_cowie on how the NBN could split the city of Ballarat: thecourier.com.au/story/1413277/… [Worth a read.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @niltiac: OK. The word “device” should be replaced with “My Little Pony™ toy” in any story about “bring your own device”. [Yes! BYOMLP!]

via Janetter for Mac

I think “Tru dat” would be a technology story.

via Janetter for Mac

Wow. Remember when “Tru dat” was a thing?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BundyB: @stilgherrian @niltiac This is the internet, you can shout whether they agree or disagree. [Tru dat.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @niltiac: @stilgherrian I’m not disagreeing with you. [WELL PLEASE DISAGREE WITH ME SO I CAN SHOUT AT YOU.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dannolan: W h a t pic.twitter.com/8BqfDbgSoN [Oh this a bit special, thanks Dan.]

“People who understand technology outnumber those who don’t by two to one… Unless you’re a Wiggle, write for us, not for somebody else.”

via Janetter for Mac

Note what @sherro58 (@AusGovCTO) said here about technology journalism, that it’s WAY behind society. agimo.gov.au/2013/03/06/kic…

via Janetter for Mac

@niltiac That’s my core point. “Online” is no longer anything special or remarkable, and hasn’t been for years. They meet online? So what?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

RT @Manic_Henry: I was unaware the paper had an Irony section. Maybe it should… [Yeah it starts on page 1 and then continues…]

via Janetter for Mac

There’s certainly a story there about society and culture and entertainment and irony. But it’s NOT a story in any of those other sections.

via Janetter for Mac

Bronies get driven to . Motoring story. It’s held in a convention centre. Commercial property story. They buy stuff. Business.

via Janetter for Mac

@bengrubb @smh My point is that in 2013 the internet isn’t some separate place from “mainstream culture” any more. It IS the mainstream.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb @smh Challenge: Point to any social phenomenon in the Anglosphere in the last 3 years which didn’t “break out” on the internet.

In which Rhys Muldoon reveals his fleshy encounter with Iggy Pop’s leathery-textured form. smh.com.au/entertainment/…

via Janetter for Mac

The only demographic for which “everyday activity X happened on the internet” is newsworthy or even remarkable is fish-wrap editors.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Wolfie_Rankin: Because like us Furries, they tend to meet online? [Or they meet in houses, so it’s a real estate story? I see.]

via Janetter for Mac

In what sense are Bronies a technology story, @smh?

via Janetter for Mac

Whatever do they mean?

via Janetter for Mac

“A US survey of 24,000 bronies last year found 86 per cent were male, and 84 per cent of them said they were heterosexual.”

via Janetter for Mac

I think @PitcherJenna is full of lies because I cannot find a Brony story on my @smh home page. Disappoint.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @PitcherJenna SMH (online) has a bronie story on the front page. [Thank God someone’s finally got a sense of perspective!]

@lukebunyip Bah! Feral cats don’t affect Dr Robinson’s imagined watercolour view of what “nature” looks like from her couch.

When I’m Tzar I’ll fix Dr Robinson’s NIMBYitis by siting a 10GW brown coal generating station 20 metres from her dunny door.

via Janetter for Mac

What exactly is the morality involved in recruiting bent-wing bats as beards for your property investment-protection scheme?

via Janetter for Mac

“The Robinsons are organising neighbours, raising concerns over vulnerable bent-wing bats, wedge-tailed eagles and superb parrot.”

via Janetter for Mac

So, Mary Ann Robinson, your main concern for future generations is the monetary value of your rural property? I’d call that “selfish”.

via Janetter for Mac
