Ah, and now I get copied on all the tweets from people wanting to screech at @TurnbullMalcolm. I should be paid extra for this.

via Janetter for Mac

I get the feeling that @TurnbullMalcolm letting his passion flow has made this NBN post one of his more powerful. malcolmturnbull.com.au/blogs/malcolms…

@dobes “Loose” is the theme for the day.

@missayme @missayme The “ridiculously complex” comment kinda supports my point. The vast majority of work doesn’t need that.

Idealaw Do you remember the days when every website was a ‘portal’? On the ‘global information superhighway’?

@ThomBus Oh now THAT is scenario I could support!

via Janetter for Mac

@missayme Hah! Someone with 10y experience being better than a n00b, sure, but 10+ years to get “any degree of competency”? I call bullshit.

The whole relationship between the design industry and Adobe really is a Stockholm Syndrome thing, isn’t it. Monkeys only know one toolset.

Do you know who uses phrases like “best-of-breed solution”? Fucktards, that’s who.

via Janetter for Mac

@scottcarson1957 Indeed. KIds are a lot more robust than the whole “they are fragile must protect them” brigade are on about.

@Colvinius @TheOnion @prachigu Well indeed, the whole point is to be discomforting, or worse. But oh no, we must not offend. Sigh.

@paulkidd Oh nicely played! [Grin.] But I am of course in favour of violence against pretty much everyone.

RT @alexbrewer: Unless the comment is by Twitter the company. [Yes, I suppose people ARE so stupid we need to point that out. Sigh.]

via Janetter for Mac

This is so basic! We don’t say “according to the telephone” or “according to a piece of paper”. What is WRONG with you people?

via Janetter for Mac

There’s no such thing as “according to Twitter”, only “according to <specific named people>” who might have been using Twitter.

via Janetter for Mac

If you see some thought, believe or intention attributed to “the internet” or “Twitter” or “social media”, assume the author is a fraud.

via Janetter for Mac

I hadn’t “lost faith” in @TheOnion. Does this mean I’m not “the internet”? Daft generalisations are daft, @prachigu. salon.com/2013/05/07/did…
