Tired. Cold. Disgruntled. Waiting in the rain. Sneezing. And I don’t have a gun.

RT @vealmince: N=1 is a trend. N=2 is evidence. N=3 is a scientific law. [Oh this is so, so true.]

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “If it’s got hair on it, grab it!”

via Janetter for Mac

Social commentary based on anecdotal experience with N=1? Yes, we need more of that.

via Janetter for Mac

@riskybusiness Indeed. I’m looking forward to hearing it.

RT @LiaTimson: Harvard.xxx was secured by Harvard for obvious reasons smh.com.au/it-pro/busines… [Pimping out students as hookers.]

@scottcarson1957 Of course, “shrill embellishments” are just wrong and I would never do such a thing myself. Obviously.

@AlisterAir Though I suppose the only views that count are those of potentially-swinging voters in marginal electorates. To Penrith!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlisterAir

@AlisterAir I guess this all comes back to where I started: I thought @TurnbullMalcolm’s arguments would be more persuasive than they were.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlisterAir

@AlisterAir … And does that even apply when it’s a debt-funded for-sale piece of infrastructure? I need an accountant’s view now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlisterAir

@AlisterAir Well, there’s spreads in those numbers but, yes, re opportunity cost then we haven’t seen anything (yet) on other spends…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlisterAir

@AlisterAir Hang on, the opportunity-cost staged-approach argument is at the core of the Coalition’s NBN policy. Not put well enough, or…?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlisterAir

RT @jeamland: “Seriously - you’re fancy like a gay peacock threesome.” [Wow, that’s pretty damn fancy!]

via Janetter for Mac

@kimogrady1 That’s part of my surprise. I’d assumed (yeah, I know) that businesspeople would warm to @TurnbullMalcolm’s businesslike plan,

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EX_V19

Folks, screeching slogans and hyperbole at me isn’t going to convince me that you’re a rational human being worth paying attention to.

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose people imagine that if you report what someone says then you agree with and support it. Well, such people would be fuckwits.

via Janetter for Mac

What didn’t surprise me was that simply trying to summarise @TurnbullMalcolm’s arguments fairly gets you branded as an LNP puppet. Lulz.

via Janetter for Mac

I must admit, I’m surprised at the strength of reaction against @TurnbullMalcolm’s NBN plan.

via Janetter for Mac

So @EssentialVision’s poll said even 31% of Liberal voters prefer the government’s NBN plan over @TurnbullMalcolm’s. essentialvision.com.au/nbn

_iamalik Just got a random call from an Australian Radio station asking me tell them how I feel being a Muslim in America after the bombings today.

RT @prestontowers: Where does one shop for a teenage girl in Melbourne? [I believe there are, er, certain services that can help with that.]

Here’s @TurnbullMalcolm’s 36-page backgrounder from last week setting out his arguments. media.crikey.com.au/wp-content/upl…

RT @DrParnassus: Don’t forget ‘Fantasy Journalism’! [Oh so very true! @bernietb]

bernietb @stilgherrian Data journalism and feelings journalism.

@MGliksmanMDPhD @Rebecca_Merrett I can’t speak to your doubts about @TurnbullMalcolm, but “winning an election” is one possible goal.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MGliksmanMDPhD

I do like the term “data journalist”. It highlights the fact that all the others write their stories in the absence of data.

via Janetter for Mac

“Wild claims used to sell rival broadband networks”, writes data journalist @edmundtadros on both sides’ big fibs. afr.com/p/national/wil…

via Janetter for Mac

“Turnbull’s NBN could ‘cost the same’ in the long-run”, writes @Rebecca_Merrett, tho the argument is when it’s spent. cio.com.au/article/459033…

So far I’ve seen SBS, Triple J, 2SER ask for people to talk to in Boston. What will your so-insightful questions add to our understanding?

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Everyone I Do Business With, all comms are running late today and tomorrow. It’s just the backlog, not that I hate you, probably.

via Janetter for Mac

Tue plan, draft, unordered: Plod thru endless backlog of email and other comms; story research and planning; train to Wentworth Falls.

SnarkyPlatypus Yes, it’s called a Bachelor of Economics RT @ataraxite: Can you do a Bachelor of Feelings at university?

See, I’d have thought that my last tweet would’ve been a clear hint that I don’t want people to talk at me about it.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m starting to get the impression that something bad happened to some people somewhere and everyone just HAS to go on and on about it.

Dumplings are worse than sujo. Discuss.
