Mr @simonhackett says YSSY and YPAD, though, ‘cos he’s being a pilot and talking pilot-speak specifics that I mangled.

@darrenmackay @ZDNet And you can drop the bullshit patronising “mate”. I’ve no idea who you are, and you’re certainly not a mate.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to darrenmackay

@darrenmackay What’s so special about “journalists”? And what I do and say in my own time is my own business, not @ZDNet’s.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to darrenmackay

@smperris @zdnetaustralia Yeah, I kinda miss when my stuff csne with DSD recruitment adverts…

via Twitter for Windows Phone in reply to smperris

I suspect that he is unable to respond, for obvious reasons.

@GreenJ What’s so difficult about it? You have some kerosene handy, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

@rashasman @mishaketch Oh ta. Also, now, a lecture each semester to first-year media students at UTS. Same schtick. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

@BenJohnston_ From iOS I don’t post pics at all, sorry, ‘cos it’s an iPad. Twitpic in Janetter. Instagram on Android (phone) or Flickr.

I’ve just witnessed THE best front-bar trolling I have ever seen in my entire life. I shall drop it into “The 9pm Election” on Friday.

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile If you can’t come up with a decent first-pass estimate of that number by 0750 AEST then you need to resign your job.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

People make a big deal of someone “dropping the f-bomb” on television? Get over yourselves, you stupid cunts!

via Janetter for Mac

@mishaketch For me it’s the little trinkets of amusement that grab another molecule of personal data. Academic drag doesn’t make it safer.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mishaketch

@mishaketch I’m looking forward to the data mining singularity, or something. But it does seem some folks don’t know what parties believe.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mishaketch

@chieftech @jodiem Oh they can predict it from the music playlist you posted 20 years ago. But why feed the maw of the beast?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chieftech

@mishaketch Did you read all the way to the end? ;) I am deadly serious about the implications of data mining and psychological profiling.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mishaketch

My modest contribution: “Yes, Senator Abetz, ABC’s Vote Compass is indeed Orwellian” zdnet.com/yes-senator-ab…

Thank you so much, @jodiem. I think it’s time for me to retweet the link, given it’s approaching Monday Night political Arsehattery Time…

RT @brumus: @stilgherrian do you live in Lumiaville now? [Oh, I live in Funky Town now! youtube.com/watch?v=VnejLm… Yay! (Sorry.)]

via Janetter for Mac

@tonybmorton Indeed, I was told years ago that ABC Census raw data is fuzzed to help prevent re-identification.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to tonybmorton

The problem with you, @dobes, is that you completely fail to appreciate a certain Senator’s erotic appeal.

@dobes The glorious irony is that Turnbull was strawmaning all tech media as mindless fibre enthusiasts. And yet, no.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Turnbull megafanboi @dobes explains why NBN FTTH zealots are out-of-touch arsehats. zdnet.com/technology-wil…

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes But, since you raised the hashtag issue…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@dobes Because the proles could benefit from your wisdom, son. By God, could they benefit from it.

“Technology will be everything and nothing in this election”, writes @dobes zdnet.com/technology-wil…

scott_thewspot @stilgherrian Now it’s a clearly increasing shrill polarisation of extreme “Left” and “Right” views. Fence sitters scared away in short time

I feel obliged to retweet my essay “Influence, vanity metrics and other internet astrology” zdnet.com/influence-vani…

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, I should’ve checked with @snurb_dot_info to see if that analysis still applies.

via Janetter for Mac

No, I’m not. I have muted. Besides, ’s core is “a little cluster of hardline conservatives”. crikey.com.au/2012/05/23/twi…

@jeamland Is there time for @nazzer to register for the federal election? I believe there is!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

Campaign emails received in the first 24 hours: Labor 19; Coalition nil; Greens nil; ISOC-AU 1. That is all.

RT @olivewhippet: I live in Corangamite. I prefer to think of it as a sexually transmitted disease [Coalivax cream, for severe Corangamite.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @akent: Corangamite, I think I spread some of that on my toast for breakfast once. [It’s never been as good as the other brand.]

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus @ApostrophePong Sorry, I was confused there. There’s an almost-identical Isaan Station in San Francisco.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I had a Corangamite once. I used to feed it on scraps from the kitchen and the occasional meal worm.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah Katoomba, where your burger shop plays Jean-Michel Jarre’s “Oyxgene”…

via Janetter for Mac

I am unconvinced by his narrative.

Train slightly delayed by an arsehat youth repeatedly explaining to the guard that he didn’t do nuthin’.

via Twitter for Windows Phone

@SnarkyPlatypus @ApostrophePong Ah yes, I’ve been meaning to eat there some time, closest to the real thing I’ve seen in the US.

via Twitter for Windows Phone in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Mobile: Walk dirt track then Railway Pde to Wentworth Falls; 1400 train to Katoomba; errands; lunch; a late afternoon of plotting over wine.

via Janetter for Mac

My @zdnetaustralia column is filed! I managed to get 89 words into the opening sentence. [Bows.]

via Janetter for Mac

I can get plenty more words into that sentence, I reckon.

via Janetter for Mac

Possibly I’ve had too much coffee already today.

via Janetter for Mac

So seven more sentences like that and I’m done!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: Did you put that comma there accidentally on purpose or not? [Screw you.]

via Janetter for Mac

Yes of course my lede can consist of a single 81-word sentence. Because I’m a fucking professional, arsehat!

via Janetter for Mac

@erkpod Exactly that. And why is it the pub’s problem anyway?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to erkpod

So the @zdnetaustralia column I’m writing just now begins thusly: “It’s not every day that I agree with Senator Eric Abetz…”

via Janetter for Mac

@erkpod The analysis would be trickier. Which incidents count as “outside the licensed premises”, and are they linked or coincidental?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to erkpod

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: In other exciting news, my Vitamin E cream seems to have exploded in my luggage. []

via Janetter for Mac

The downward trend in police recorded assaults on licensed premises is genuine, says NSW BOSCAR director Dr Don Weatherburn.

via Janetter for Mac

Was the decrease in assaults at licensed premises driven by changes in staff reporting rates? No, says NSW BOSCAR. lawlink.nsw.gov.au/Lawlink/bocsar…

via Janetter for Mac

So the week has only just begun and I’m already an hour behind my intended schedule. This bodes well. Time for a coffee then! [Mutters…]

NewtonMark ALP people are actually, seriously using that Fairfax argument about NBN vs Murdoch. As usual, ALP knows nothing about its own NBN policy.

@nazzer It’s true, I could see that ISOC-AU’s stuff must’ve been prepared before the election was called. But delightfully timely.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nazzer

Awaiting instructions.

Suddenly extremely disgruntled but also laughing hysterically. It’s going to be one of those weeks.

RT: So last night I blogged this: “Announcing The 9pm Election”, in which I propose making some podcasts. stilgherrian.com/edict/00023a/

via Janetter for Mac

Channel Nine playing clips from Liveleak. “I don’t know which country this is from, but it’s overseas.” Well that’s added value.

via Janetter for Mac

Chirpy @AusElectoralCom is chirpy. I bet the enthusiasm won’t last the week, though.

So far I’ve received three campaign emails from Labor, nil from the Coalition, nil from any other party, one from ISOC-AU.

@tomjd @StartSomeGood Cool. I’m deciding which platform(s) to use later today. Time is short. But I used to work in daily radio, so easy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to tomjd

That is, Mary Beard spoke with @Herring1967 about sexism, not that she cops sexism from @Herring1967. I think. I’m not sure now.
