@tonekee Oh, you ignore the political overviews and start with Budget Paper No 2, which lists the changes.

San Jose morning and with turboprop and Adobe HQ instagram.com/p/ZS1aMPiFkV/

Still pondering how I should cover the Budget this year, given my ranty approach last year. stilgherrian.com/politics/so-ho…

via Janetter for Mac

Suddenly realizing, as I download the Budget papers, that I don’t have to file for @crikey_news for another 12 hours.

via Janetter for Mac

Tue plan draft: Opine on budget for @crikey_news; NetSuite SuiteWorld Day 1; write about same; dinner Testrarossa Winery, Los Gatos.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh hello, Tuesday. This doesn’t hurt at all.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m starting to think that journalists who describe perfectly ordinary events as “budget chaos”, for instance, must be mentally ill.

via Plume for Android

Journalists who describe any and every budget shortfall or cost overrun as a “black hole”.

speedweasel LinkedIn is just the pits. It comes with all the obligations of a social network only it’s filled with assholes from work.

@kimogrady1 Heh. Glad to be of service. Or something.

RT @dobes: Can you hire the Mad As Hell kraken for parties? [If you can’t, it’s a crime against humanity.]

via Janetter for Mac

The problem with @Cmdr_Hadfield looking wistfully out of the ISS cupola like that? I’ve seen “Dark Star”.

via Janetter for Mac

@bastardsheep Yeah that’s what I was thinking. So I won’t mention it. Ta.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bastardsheep

Should I mention that NetSuite has given all the media at SuiteWorld a FondleSlab Mini?

RT @darrenpauli: @stilgherrian Are you in Italy or is that just an old photo? pic.twitter.com/gTNsqDQLG0 [Looks more like @mpesce to me…]

via Janetter for Mac

I didn’t drink any of this wine, of course. I’m just going to be reporting it for YOUR BENEFIT.

via Janetter for Mac

Making contact with the person who organised tonight’s wine list so I can report tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

Also, the cheese platter.

via Plume for Android

So Gartner has named NetSuite as the fastest growing financial management software vendor globally. No wonder they’re spoiling us.

Heading down to the “cocktail reception” and to face this pic.twitter.com/TGRAFhfNM5 before a “press welcome” at Michael Mina’s ARCADIA

@SnarkyPlatypus @amworldtodaypm I agree. Singing feelpinions would make for much better radio all round. @MartinCuddihy, can we do this?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

So this @amworldtodaypm story has a singing astronaut and a feelpinion from me. Because space. abc.net.au/am/content/201…

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Well yeah I know this place lives on caffeine and ego in about equal proportions. I need a hit of each.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@dobes So NOW you tell me. Where were you an hour ago?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

I just had a one-hour nap. I’m not sure that it helped.

via Janetter for Mac

@chris23 Thanks, Chris, I’ll definitely check it out… especially given that it’s only a few blocks away.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chris23

OK, I’ve encountered the irrepressible @NetSuite_MeiLi and CEO @ZachNelson, and they both still want me here. Will have to fix that.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Désolé, vos transmissions se disloquent. Il est indistinct. Je ne comprends pas.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jonoabroad @R_Chirgwin The media is trickling in now, but we are only officially welcomed tonight.

via Plume for Android in reply to jonoabroad

@AskTonyFood You over estimate how much I care about the alkaloid stimulants. While “better” coffee is nice, I’m not fussed without it.

via Plume for Android in reply to AskTonyFood

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je me prépare pour trois jours de… de complexité. Et vous?

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jonoabroad Look, this is Really Hard Work, OK? We have to talk to people and think and stuff.

via Plume for Android in reply to jonoabroad

They’re real plants, @R_Chirgwin, despite your cynicism instagram.com/p/ZRFBoSiFs5/

So I just recorded a spot about @Cmdr_Hadfield for ABC Radio’s @amworldtodaypm … which was unexpected.

@PRTiffany And you. :) I daresay we’ll meet again over the next few days.

via Plume for Android in reply to PRTiffany

@Mei_He @dahowlett Agreed, it’s a much more pleasant windowless room than the windowless rooms at the Moscone Centre. ;)

via Plume for Android in reply to Mei_He

BTW, are they any must-see things in San Jose, given that I’ll have a bit of free time here and there?

via Janetter for Mac

Right, I think I might go and register and see if the media room is set up yet.

“Jaron Lanier: The Internet destroyed the middle class” is a fascinating long-term perspective. salon.com/2013/05/12/jar…

New blog post: “So how should I cover Budget 2013?” stilgherrian.com/politics/so-ho…

via Janetter for Mac

I do like how the schedule for the latter part of the day is drinks followed by MOAR DRINKZ. This is how journalism works, people.

via Janetter for Mac

Mon plan, 1245 PDT update: Arrive San Jose (done); register NetSuite SuiteWorld; explore; 1700 welcome reception; 1830 “Press Mixer”.

@ivovic Hey, there’s nothing wrong with being in a good mood. I’ve tried it myself every now and then, and it felt good.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

@jeamland I do want to visit The Melbourne soon, and I may have some work coming up there. I’ll look at that when I’m back from The America.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

The glorious view from the San Jose Hilton instagram.com/p/ZQ3DlciFqw/

via Instagram

@jeamland Ah, you’re going to The Canada. I am only going to be in The America.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@jeamland Oh excellent! I’m just about to check out and get our 1100 PDT transport down to SJC.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

Here’s the same spot on Google Street View. goo.gl/maps/sS4km

New photo: “Golden Harvest” flickr.com/photos/stilghe… Ping @ApostrophePong, for the “typography”.

via Janetter for Mac

I fear that one day the alien archaeologists will find a cache of animated GIFs and judge our species accordingly.

via Janetter for Mac

How dare you all judge my pig.

via Janetter for Mac

I assume that the “artisan ham” is made from hand-carved pigs.

via Janetter for Mac

Breakfast has arrived. I ordered the same as yesterday, so I’ll just post that photo again. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…
