Turning off the internet before I fuck it up any more.

Maybe I should get a proper job.

via Janetter for Mac

I am not happy with that at all.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, I’ve pressed “send” on that. Good luck with that, @thelaughingsub! I think I might have to crawl away and cry now… @SnarkyPlatypus

via Janetter for Mac

That feeling when you’re 15 minutes from deadline and suddenly overwhelmed by the thought that every single word you’re writing is shit.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @kcarruthers: @stilgherrian WHY YOU HAVE NOT OPENED MY SNAPCHAT? it’s not rude or anything [Because I haven’t been 13yo for a long time?]

via Janetter for Mac

And now I have a little over two hours to turn my disjointed thoughts into a coherent column for @zdnetaustralia. This’ll be fun.

RT @firstdogonmoon: today’s first dog on the moon cartoon is free and may contain traces of racist gay cat crikey.com.au/2013/06/14/ton… [It does.]

Clearly the only solution to these controversies is to put Howard Sattler in charge of the NSA.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus While I understand the joys of deadlines, yes, that TIME piece is remarkably weak.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

James Bamford has been writing about the NSA for decades and his books are, IMHO, definitive. So, yeah, read that article.

via Janetter for Mac

Wow. @WIRED has got the inimitable James Bamford on “The Secret War”. Serious must-read, folks. wired.com/threatlevel/20…

via Janetter for Mac

Dear America, criticising government agencies, or pointing out potentially illegal behaviour, isn’t “treason”. It’s “democracy”, remember?

via Janetter for Mac

It is, of course, TIME’s cover story this week. img.timeinc.net/time/daily/201…

via Janetter for Mac

That TIME story is a glorious effort at mashing up a variety of people into some supposedly unified geek-enemy. time.com/time/magazine/…

via Janetter for Mac

US Senator Graham: “I don’t care what we need to do. We need to bring this guy to justice for deterrence sake.” time.com/time/magazine/…

via Janetter for Mac

Have you noticed how the phrase “bring to justice” really means “punish regardless”, or even “revenge on that motherfucker”?

benhammersley “The metadata is not the communication, so it’s not subject to a need for a warrant” is a genius-level legal hack, you have to admit.

RealBlueMeanie If Cheney and Rumsfeld were both drowning and you only had time to save one, what kind of sandwich would you make?

@scottcarson1957 Absolutely. When (if?) we get past the initial problem of making NSA’s records available for criminal cases. Fun times!

@llament You did. But I won’t tell anyone.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to llament

RT @BXGD: How about sassy wombats? online.wsj.com/article/SB1000… [This generates more despair than anger. @zdnetaustralia]

via Janetter for Mac

Unfocused anger is for tabloids and talkback.

via Janetter for Mac

I should’ve mentioned that for @zdnetaustralia my anger does need to have at least a vague technology focus.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe I’ll find something to be appropriately angry about over breakfast or the quick errands I must do. Though I’m remarkably uninspired…

via Janetter for Mac

Let’s all be classy.

@SnarkyPlatypus I believe the metric for ethics is a measure of how far up the broom handle goes before they notice. In metres.

RT @jeamland: The “X copied Y” fanboy brigade? (in re iOS 7 et al) [Possibly. Imagine cars if every brand had to have different controls.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @MikeCarlton01 It’s radio for the foolish, the failed and the fearful. The shock jocks reassure ‘em it’s all someone else’s fault. [Yep.]

via Janetter for Mac

I have no idea what to be angry about for @zdnetaustralia this week. That’s really my main problem this morning.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan: Invoicing (done); write for @zdnetaustralia (about what?); train to Wentworth Falls, probably, writing en route; TGIF, TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

@MikeCarlton01 Indeed. I don’t understand why anyone would want to wallow daily in such bile. The world is a nicer place than that.

@juhasaarinen I assume it’s just matching the presenter to the audience, and then people mistaking this dialog for something important.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

RT @KateRichardson: Why buying Facebook fans = flawed maths via @socialmedia2day ow.ly/m15oF [“Totally unethical” ain’t enough?]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @juhasaarinen: @stilgherrian Mate, don’t do yourself out of a job like that. [At least I’m not ignorant.]

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder whether commercial talkback radio stations will ever realise that their presenters don’t have to be bitter, ignorant old turds?

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je crois que nous sommes devenus un monde de vendredi perpétuelles. Avec un excès d’oies. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I see a bunch of messages for me. I will get to them as the day unfolds. Thanks to yesterday’s spectacles incident I’m half a day behind.

via Janetter for Mac

What I don’t like about that plan is that I don’t particularly want to be in Wentworth Falls tonight. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, draft: Invoicing; write for @zdnetaustralia; train to Wentworth Falls, probably, writing en route; TGIF, details TBA.
