GSElevator #1: For people who believe everything happens for a reason, that reason is that they’re idiots who make shitty decisions.

@kcarruthers And when it IS in iTunes, I shall promote it from arsehole to breakfast time, to use an old Australian expression.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers I had “issues” with the RSS XML that I’ve only just fixed, so it’ll be submitted to iTunes tomorrow.

@MayaPosch Fair point. There goes that theory. Maybe it means the Germans are invading?

@MayaPosch Usually Tuesday nights is when the bell-ringers practice their art.

Actually, @SnarkyPlatypus, I think it’s just their advantage of having my on ministerial mailing lists. But 68:nil isn’t a good look.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Internal party polling showing that the ALP will win by spamming their mailing lists.

Thanks, @leogaggl. There’s now an ABC Radio conversation with me and Vote Compass’ creator @CliffvdLinden at stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

Nearly finished the production of corruptedneds.com episode 3, a chat with @petercoffee. It’ll be online in about an hour. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac

Two days in, the campaign emails received are: Labor 68; Coalition nil; Greens nil; ISOC-AU 1. This intrigues me.

via Janetter for Mac

Towing working families back out to sea, yes.

Vodafone just switched on 1200 new regional sites, claims 40% increase in coverage. New maps at vodafone.com.au/aboutvodafone/…

via Janetter for Mac

Still laughing. I may be some time.

via Janetter for Mac

BWHAHAHAHAHA! Oh that phone call delivered the most hilarious news I’ve received in years! Damn near wetting myself.

New blog post: “Talking Vote Compass on ABC @666canberra” with its creator @CliffvdLinden. 12 mins audio. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

@CliffvdLinden I’m certainly also interested in talking about the mathematics behind what you do. It intrigues me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CliffvdLinden

@CliffvdLinden Thank you. Indeed, I’d love to chat to you some time for a new podcast I do at corruptednerds.com … I’ll be in touch.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CliffvdLinden

… and we’re done! Thanks, @CliffvdLinden @666canberra, I think we brought out where we agree and differ. Talk to you again soon, Cliff.

via Janetter for Mac

On hold for ABC @666canberra, going slightly early. Live stream at abc.net.au/canberra/

@PeteDotAscian There’s links to Vote Compass’ methodology in my article. zdnet.com/yes-senator-ab…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PeteDotAscian

@PeteDotAscian My understanding is that Political Compass is trademarked to a UK [?] publisher, Vote Compass is independent CA evolution.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PeteDotAscian

@jkerrison It’s not the ABC I worry about. It’s not an ABC application. You didn’t read the article, did you? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jkerrison

Excellent, @CliffvdLinden. As you may have seen, I’m been looking at this stuff for quite some time. Chat soon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CliffvdLinden

Said Vote Compass creator being @CliffvdLinden. I’m very much looking forward to the conversation.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m talking Vote Compass, as is its creator, on ABC @666canberra at 0940 AEST (in 25 mins). Live stream at abc.net.au/canberra/

@mikeduck29 You haven’t actually read the artticle, have you?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikeduck29

@mikeduck29 Sorry, employing what to find trends in what? I’m not sure of what you’re trying to say.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikeduck29

@mikeduck29 It’s not the metadata I’m on about. I don’t even mention metadata. It’s thew data itself and the ease of re-indentification.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikeduck29

dobes Did the hinge fairy visit everyone last night?

via Grumpy Subliminal Tweet (retweeted on 8:28 AM, Aug 6th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@mikeduck29 The implication that only the mentally ill look at these issues demeans you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikeduck29

@mikeduck29 Taking a step back and looking at the long-term implications of data mining has been a topic of mine for years.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikeduck29

Tue plan: Comms catchup; 0940 ABC @666canberra; finish corruptednerds.com podcast ep3; writing ad libitum al fine; evening of reading.

@davidgerard Well, there is that… The gods know, someone’s got to do it.

@jvyver I have so email you, James, and yes that’s all fine.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jvyver

Every single fucking one of you has the entire internet at your fingertips. If a 14yo can work out how to get a million views why can’t you?

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe if people spent less time whinging that a rich man (gash!) published his views, and more time promoting their own views… [Shrug.]

via Janetter for Mac

@RoseGWhite Ah, I was wondering why you were scrolling back so far into the past! Glad you found some amusement.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RoseGWhite

Oh, also hello Tuesday. I’m feeling a big dreadful, so no Sydney visit for me today. That’ll happen tomorrow, probably.

via Janetter for Mac

Uhoh, @AusElectoralCom’s Twitter account has been taken over by The Naughty People. There goes democracy.
