EX_V19 It’s Buddha’s birthday but there’s no Buddha cards, Buddha presents, Buddha sales, Buddha retail displays. What sort of a religion is that?

Why do journalists always imagine that people who don’t know some fact or other are “baffled”? Did you ask? Maybe they’re quite indifferent.

According @sydneytraffic, someone in Glenbrook has a collapsed manhole, which sounds dreadfully painful.

via Janetter for Mac

@bengrubb @joshrowe Oh I’m just being silly. It’s pretty obvious it’s a quote.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bengrubb

Every single word in his Twitter bio makes me want to punch him in the face even harder.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus That should work. I’m on the top floor, and all decent nerve gases are slightly heavier than air and will sink down.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

This hotel is near the Moscone Centre and it’s full of developers at the Google gig and they are eating up all the internets. :/

via Janetter for Mac

@BXGD @bengrubb I shall refrain some saying something very tacky at this point, even though I thought of something rather funny.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BXGD

@joshrowe @bengrubb Let’s just hope people read the quote as being BY me rather than ABOUT me. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshrowe

@bengrubb Thank you. Perhaps I should compile columns out of my late-night tweets more often.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bengrubb

@GiovanniTorre was inspired by a running gag about “ham hand” in Richard Herring’s podcasts. comedy.co.uk/podcasts/richa…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GiovanniTorre

Ah! “Government accused of sneaking in web filter”, by @bengrubb re ASIC. I’m quoted making ham-related accusations. smh.com.au/technology/tec…

Google is telling me I’m in the Sydney Morning Herald. What am I alleged to have done this time?

Arrivified at the San Francisco Caltrain depot. Walking up 4th St to the hotel.

via Cloudhopper

Departing San Jose on Caltrain #371, the 4.45pm “Baby Bullet” (hah!) to San Francisco.

via Cloudhopper

Mobile: Walk ~1km to San Jose Diridon Caltrain Depot; 1623 (or later?) Caltrain to San Francisco; walk to 4th St; check in; remainder TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

And that’s it for SuiteWorld for me. Thanks @ZachNelson @NetSuite_MeiLi and the team. More soon.

via Janetter for Mac

@mattdasilva Agreed, but — thank all the gods! — I have some great editors with whom I have a good working relationship.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mattdasilva

A NetSuite PR person has just confirmed that the Caltrain is a great way to return to San Francisco. You see places you otherwise wouldn’t.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. Despite the scattered story pitches, I have a plan and a target word length and a deadline, all better than expected. Lovely.

via Janetter for Mac

I think I just emailed off the most scattered and unfocused story pitches I’ve ever written. My brain is a mess.

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan, unfocussed 1500 PDT update: Farewell ; 1623 Caltrain to San Francisco; check in; dinner; write words for money; collapse.

Tough on snails, tough on the causes of snails.

@SnarkyPlatypus J’aime lire sur l’art, je vous remercie.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Mon cerveau a été frits dans du fromage. Mais je reviens à la Ville de St Francis très bientôt. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@fremnet Hey sure, a valid response. But “news” is a manufactured commodity, events compete for a handful of attention-slots each day.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to fremnet

@fremnet I can’t speak for @zdnetaustralia, but it’s certainly new to bulk of the audience now reacting, and that means it works as news.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to fremnet

@fremnet Sure, the blocks were 4 to 12 April, but new facts re official govt acknowledgement. Plus it’s new to the masthead’s audience.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to fremnet

@jeamland That sounds interesting, I agree, but I finally choose a hotel in San Francisco. The Ottawa must manage without me for now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

Being remarkably unproductive, and remarkably indecisive about where I’ll stay in San Francisco tonight. I am an arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac

Why is there a television program about Anthony Bourdain’s unknown parts?

via Janetter for Mac

@johnb78 “Seppo telly? Great phrase, that. But yeah the Beckham thing is a minor story. Main thrust is all the political controversy atm.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnb78

@PRTiffany Yes, great to talk! So much fun bringing people new words!

Alone in the SuiteWorld press lounge, drinking coffee and reviewing my notes.

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan: review notes; pitch story ideas to editors; lunch in San Jose; Caltrain to San Francisco; write words for money; evening TBA.

Skipping the final keynote ‘cos it’s channel etc, which I don’t cover, and writing story pitches for editors instead.

via Janetter for Mac

@Beautyon_ @rosshill I grant you, it’ll work in many scenarios. But given the architecture of actual ISPs and hosting firms, not everywhere.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beautyon_

@Beautyon_ @rosshill You’ve inspired me to write an article with a simple diagram explaining why “no matter where you are” is wrong.

Gawd, why are they only opening the press lounge at 0800 PDT today? Some of us tend to have / need breakfast well before that. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

@Beautyon_ @rosshill Remember, censorship is a goal, not a method.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beautyon_

@Beautyon_ @rosshill Really? If you want to censor (stop information being transmitted), killing those involved works rather well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beautyon_

@Beautyon_ @rosshill No need to check. If there’s no proxy between the blocks and the host server, it can’t work.

Meanwhile, back in Australia, “Alleged Lulzsec leader fronts Sydney court”, by @bengrubb, 15 May. smh.com.au/it-pro/securit…

via Janetter for Mac

Just thinking about that “new” LulzSec website… What sort of hacker embeds audio in a website using Flash?
