Well, SID Volume One episode 1 was quite interesting. @franksting @ScottRhodie and guest @boneycross. soundcloud.com/sid-volume-one…

@franksting @ScottRhodie Actually, there’s a couple things you were talking about in episode 1 that relate to some project ideas…

Ta @robcorr @R_Chirgwin @purserj, I’ll play with the SoundCloud app for a bit.

via Janetter for Mac

By “normal RSS”, for SoundCloud, I mean I see a podcast that looks interesting, and I copy and paste the URL into anything I like.

via Janetter for Mac

Seriously, guys, “one app per website” is like when they tried “one radio per radio station”. It didn’t last. Everyone loses musical chairs.

via Janetter for Mac

So does SoundCloud use normal, open-standards RSS, or is it another of those closed systems where you have to use their app?

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve uploaded the full 3552 x 2000-pixel images to Flickr, just as they came from the Lumia 925’s camera. Enjoy.

When I finish my time machine, I intend to track down the first journalist who ever wrote “crashed” for a website that was merely over-busy.

Of course that report by Australian Crime Commission (ACC) yesterday was yet another platform for Labor to re-bleat “we’re tough” bleats.

Mind you, politicians are more worried about losing their seat in an election than, oh, children suffering in a concentration camp in PNG.

Watch for that sleight-of-hand whenever someone says “[activity X[ costs ‘the economy’” some ludicrous amount. Like copying a movie.
