@michaelneale @SnarkyPlatypus Taiga is still in the Mountains. But pants were required, ‘cos we ended up doing a walk-down-corridor shot.

And the television is done. That’s for a piece for @theprojecttv, currently scheduled for Monday night.

via Janetter for Mac

The Television People, they are here. Baxoon.

@Xavier_Ho @zdnetaustralia @topdeck Your argument seems to be that it’s OK to accept sub-standard crap as long as it kinda works.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Xavier_Ho

Ironing a shirt. Because television. But only ironing the front. Also because television.

via Janetter for Mac

@Xavier_Ho @zdnetaustralia My point is more about process anyway. Just how to you launch with an app that won’t work on default config?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Xavier_Ho

@Xavier_Ho @zdnetaustralia I’m glad you’ve perceived all the subtleties in my piece. “Bash”. Yeah, I should’ve just said that.

As part of its “Australia in the Asian Century” thing, the government just launched its Indonesia country strategy. dfat.gov.au/issues/asian-c…

via Janetter for Mac

Anyway, enough about international law. It’s time now to figure out what grand stories I shall tell the viewers of @theprojecttv.

via Janetter for Mac

Also Article 27.2, which says that “all correspondence relating to the mission and its functions” shall be inviolable.

via Janetter for Mac

“Article 24: The archives and documents of the mission shall be inviolable at any time and wherever they may be.” Clear enough?

Here is a PDF of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. It’s quite readable. untreaty.un.org/ilc/texts/inst…

via Janetter for Mac

This should work for families too. “At any time and without having to explain its decision” declare a person “persona non grata”.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Intelligence agencies adhere to that rigidly, I’m sure. [Exactly. As the @guardian explains.]

via Janetter for Mac

The Vienna Convention really just codifies the traditional immunity for messengers like ambassadors and heralds that goes back a millennium.

via Janetter for Mac

@ddowza @guardian Journalism has a problem with what linguists call “the recency illusion”, and @BernardKeane calls “the perpetual present”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ddowza

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Why wouldn’t you bug a foreign embassy? [A little thing called the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.]

via Janetter for Mac

“Listen carefully: bugging foreign embassies is nothing new” in the @guardian is a good potted history. guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jul…

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks to the obliging chap at reception, I’ve arranged to do everything in the hotel room. Hang on, that sounds wrong.

Sometimes it is good to be a freelancer and not have to be in an office with Officially-Sanctioned Organised Group Frivolity.

@0x1C @darrenpauli Indeed, there are so many kinds of wrong happening all at once. And not in that good way. /cc @seamus @dobes

RT @juhasaarinen: You must do the location properly. Here’s how: bit.ly/14VJIsA [Yes, this is how hacking and spying are done.]

via Janetter for Mac

So, this TV shoot at 1400 today. A location to borrow. With computer screens and modernness. Story about NSA. Near Camperdown. Volunteers?

via Janetter for Mac

@garthk We won’t be needing to shoot B-roll, this is just an interview.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garthk

Thank you, @eBleeter @reselsnark @Gin_ev_ra, I do appreciate the feedback I’m getting from that blog post.

via Janetter for Mac

Article filed (finally) for @zdnetaustralia. Now to consider this TV shoot.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, that writing for money thing. I suppose I’d better start this morning’s session around now.

RT: So who’s not too far from Camperdown, Sydney, with computer screens etc, where we can shoot a TV story about NSA spookery ay 1400 today?

via Janetter for Mac

Isn’t that Cory Bernardi just a complete ankle.

via Janetter for Mac

You know, @juhasaarinen, those two stories I just RTd seem to go together very nicely.

Fri plan: Write for @zdnetaustralia, eventually; strangle a client; 1400 record for @theprojecttv (where?); migrate to Lilyfield; TGIF.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Oui, je propose donc un défilé de véhicules blindés et de champagne.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @ivovic: I think you should shoot at a plumbing supplies store, in front of all the taps. :P [Yeah, I’ll pay that.]

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je l’ai fait à la fin de la semaine, ou presque, sans tuer qui que ce soit. Succès ou échec? Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@R_Chirgwin Given that the shoot is for @theprojecttv, you might like to rethink that answer.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

Thank you, @electric589 @jodiem @WarWraith, much appreciated.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m trying to think where we did these before, but they were for ABC so we use an edit suite or stand in front of a rack of blinkenlights.

via Janetter for Mac

So who’s not too far from Camperdown, Sydney, with computer screens etc, where we can shoot a TV story about NSA spookery ay 1400 today?

via Janetter for Mac

Suddenly noticing that this hotel room won’t work for today’s TV shoot. Sight lines are all wrong. I’ll have to steal someone’s office.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you @domknight @adm_76 @wirehead2501@SawHole @CMSheen2. I said I’d stop individual thanks, but I must’ve been fibbing.

via Janetter for Mac

@JohnBirmingham @semibogan @Antipaganda Yep, it’s quick to destroy the old structures, new structures yet to emerge. I must write this…

@semibogan @JohnBirmingham @Antipaganda Male-dominated, introvert-dominated, not exactly unionised (work structure is old-fashioned)…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@semibogan @JohnBirmingham @Antipaganda Depression in the tech industry is rife. Any other industry would be shut down for OH&S breaches.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@JohnBirmingham Aye, they are indeed. Blokes always just want to fight through. Men are arsehats sometimes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JohnBirmingham

Thanks so much, @JohnBirmingham @Antipaganda @semiboganman. I kinda keep forgetting how people need reminders of these messages.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, draft: Write for @zdnetaustralia; encourage clients to pay their bills; 1400 record for @theprojecttv; migrate to Lilyfield; TGIF.

Blog post: “My fish are dead: the black dog ate them (an explanation?)” Contains depression, unplanned pregnancy. stilgherrian.com/personal/my-fi…

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, a lot of the feedback on yesterday’s blog post about depression was a good message, particularly for men, so I’ll RT it again…

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you, @Wyld @shiftkey @jonstribling, and anyone else I’ve forgotten to thank overnight. The reaction to that post has been amazing.

via Janetter for Mac

At this time, I choose to begin my Friday.
