Actually, @akent, this angle gives a better impression, plus solar irony. goo.gl/maps/mszdf

Ah, @akent, that would be this high-tech derelict site? goo.gl/maps/SCjy9

This week’s @in_focus series on America in the 1970s is very good too. theatlantic.com/infocus/

Also, @SnarkyPlatypus @akent @engin_eer, I was told that “Vallejo is the new Oakland”, cryptically.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@engin_eer @akent I don’t have the knowledge to answer that. Hence the explore.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to engin_eer

Well, @akent, t’other side of the Bay will be a plan for my next visit to San Francisco.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to akent

akent @stilgherrian The real SV wasteland is the other side of the bay where the public transport doesn’t even exist. So many ‘for lease’ signs.

@WarriorUriah @alexismadrigal Yep, I’ve been to the US seven times now, I think it is, and on every trip I keep seeing The Decline.

dannolan Fuck I hate that cunt

Also at @TheAtlantic, why vitamin supplements are (mostly) bullshit. theatlantic.com/health/archive… And a visualisation. informationisbeautiful.net/play/snake-oil…

via Janetter for Mac

I took the Caltrain from San Jose back to San Francisco in May. It passes right through Silicon Valley. Oh yes, you see the wasteland…

via Janetter for Mac

Possibly, @NewtonMark, I shouldn’t have burdened @alexismadrigal with the word “discovered”. But I’m sure he’ll survive.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark: How is that news? [Not all journalism is “news”, Gentle One… not all writing is journalism, even if done by journalists.]

via Janetter for Mac

So @alexismadrigal has discovered that the great Silicon Valley of 1983 is now a drab toxic shithole. A fine read. theatlantic.com/technology/arc…

via Janetter for Mac

Perhaps, @bernietb @DownloadABC, but as it happens there’s some pertinent material in it for me this very night.

via Janetter for Mac

New photos: “The Best and Most Logical Food in the World” flickr.com/photos/stilghe… flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac

Listening to this week’s @DownloadABC, in which a woman uses the word “dis-proximal. Should’ve bought more wine. abc.net.au/radionational/…

via Janetter for Mac

So Natasha Stott-Despoja is the chair of the new National Foundation to Prevent Violence against Women and their Children, launched today.

via Janetter for Mac

Another fine episode of @RNmediareport this week. Pregnancy reportage, newspaper models and paywalls. abc.net.au/radionational/…

via Janetter for Mac

True, @CosmicRami @bunjaree, this is an excellent time for starwatching. Well, not this week ‘cos there’s still too much Moon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CosmicRami

Uhoh. Weather forecast for @bunjaree is an overnight minimum of -1C tonight, Saturday’s max is 13C clear with light winds.

via Janetter for Mac

Back at @bunjaree, having shopped and TGIFed in Katoomba. An evening of (mostly) reading awaits. There is also soup, wine and cheese.

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelneale Vodafone was a 3-week trial before the 4G network went live to customers. Ended. Back on my own dime with Telstra again now.

via Plume for Android in reply to michaelneale

Sulking over an hour of wasted effort.

via Janetter for Mac

Deleting photographs from the internet.

via Janetter for Mac

Discovering an incident of journalistic arsehattery involving two journalists, one idea and two phones, both of which were wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

So Telstra has 4G in Wentworth Falls, but not in Katoomba. I’ll choose to believe that it was installed at Wenty just for me.

via Janetter for Mac

robwagpdx How can a book about a lesbian sniper-killer who plays drums in a country band near a sex colony in the south be this boring?

My column for @zdnetaustralia has been filed. Finally. Contains gratuitous yet subtle fart joke.

via Janetter for Mac

Million-dollar riff, million-dollar riff, million-dollar riff, with a solid gold sound.

via Janetter for Mac

Million-dollar riff, million-dollar riff, million-dollar riff, Goin’ round and round.

via Janetter for Mac

K-town, as they say.

So Flickr just went down for maintenance, but their “bad panda” holding page is worth a look. flickr.com

via Janetter for Mac

@NokiaAustralia Actually, don’t stand by, ‘cos Flickr just went down for maintenance. It’ll be later today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NokiaAustralia

@NokiaAustralia It was lovely, thank you. And a brief initial blog post will be appearing very shortly. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NokiaAustralia

Fri plan: Publish client website (done); blog post; errands in Sydney; return to Wentworth Falls; write for @zdnetaustralia en route; TGIF.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @CrankyDevGuy: now you wait for 3 days, then follow up with a phone call. [Yeah, that’s pretty much it.]

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder if these folks understand that computers and the internet can be used to convey, you know, information.

via Janetter for Mac

“Thank you for your enquiry. Your information was submitted via the [REDACTED] form.” Yeah. NOW WHAT?

via Janetter for Mac

I mean when you email them (or fill in a web form), and you get nothing back to say if it was even received, let alone what next.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m constantly surprised at how few companies and agencies put any sort of case number on an email, leaving it to random filing or the like.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @EmuAnon: @stilgherrian flush it [No need. It was only 300 seconds. It’d lake me longer than that to find the secondary’s login. Done.]

via Janetter for Mac

Waiting for a DNS cache to expire. It’s either it or me.

via Janetter for Mac

Anyway, it is my intention to use the Nokia Lumia 925 as my primary phone all next week, to give Windows Phone 8 a fair trial.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BXGD: This is the internet; we’re here to correct minor grammatical errors, not huge factual ones. [True. The hashtag seemed quiet.]

via Janetter for Mac

All yesterday I was takling about the “Nokia Lumia 625 launch” when it was the 925 launch. No-one corrected me.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, draft: Publish client website; blog post; errands in Sydney; return to Wentworth Falls; write for @zdnetaustralia en route; TGIF.
