“Cows?” Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Pay heed to the internet’s Third Wave Cows of Disruption” zdnet.com/pay-heed-to-th…

via Janetter for Mac

Oh I see you liked the cows. Lovely.

via Janetter for Mac

Looking at the internet again after an evening of reading. For a little bit, anyway.

via Janetter for Mac

This pollen is getting to me. Time for antihistamines and laziness.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Yes, @dobes and I discussed “cow” vs “steer”, and also “farmer” vs “grazier”. Honest Beef is laissez-faire about it. I asked.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Le printemps est arrivé avec une vengeance, et le pollen. Pendant ce temps, les vaches ont pris sur Internet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @paulwallbank: ooh, an invite to an ‘Adventures in Gamification’ seminar – I’ll go i@stilgherrianan goes. [Email me the details. Maybe.]

@carimachet @Asher_Wolf Well, on my good days perhaps. That happened to be a fun piece to write.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to carimachet

@darrenpauli @Asher_Wolf Thanks. $10/kg for ANY cut is way cheap, especially at the premium end of quality. Coles adequate mince is $6/kg.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to darrenpauli

@Asher_Wolf Why thank you. I was sort of in the zone this morning, and had a head full of pollen. Antihistamines have since been obtained.

@ericscheid Yep, the old ‘Which drawer of the filing cabinet?’ issue. I’ll do an article on this at some point.

via Plume for Android in reply to ericscheid

@ericscheid I have seen [where?] a “Name” field, then fields for “preferred name” and “sort under” or somesuch. But it’s a real problem.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ericscheid

@ericscheid Malaysian immigration entry form has one big long text field, “Name”. [shrugs] No, there’s too many variations to parse.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ericscheid

Updated blog post: “Adventures in Identity: ASIC Connect”, with @ASIC_Connect’s response. Good result. stilgherrian.com/only-one-name/…

@PrivacyMatters @adm_76 Oh you poor bastards. Apple was traditionally better than to fuck up on stuff like that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PrivacyMatters

RT @PrivacyMatters: Dear Apple, next time you plan a major OS update please test it on people who are colourblind [Lulwut?]

via Janetter for Mac

Please listen to this now, and sing along. youtube.com/watch?v=FQMbXv…

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia. It contains cows. And the future. And too many metaphors.

via Janetter for Mac

My column is very long today.

via Janetter for Mac

Fuck. I just started a sentence “Nearly half a century ago, I witnessed…” I think I’d better make a pot of tea.

via Janetter for Mac

@scott_thewspot @ASIC_Connect I do that with conference registrations, to see if it ends up on my name tag.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scott_thewspot

Thu plan: Write for @zdnetaustralia; plan writing for next three weeks; enjoy the late sunny afternoon; evening TBA, with Full Moon howling.

via Janetter for Mac

@dikkii That’s a very good idea. The country’s key corporate compliance databases need to reflect our cultural diversity.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dikkii

The cow has a green light. I repeat, the cow has a green light.

New blog post: “Adventures in Identity: ASIC Connect” stilgherrian.com/only-one-name/… Ping @ASIC_Connect @Steve_Lockstep

via Janetter for Mac

Lulwut? An interesting UX adventure from @ASIC_Connect. Read carefully. twitpic.com/de364y

via Janetter for Mac

@dikkii @ASIC_Connect I’ve just decided to launch a new blog series, “Adventures in Identity”, where I ask every organisation to fix it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dikkii

@BundyB @ASIC_Connect Hah! They’ve imported legacy state-based business name registration and ABN data into one system. It’s “soiled”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

And, @ASIC_Connect, the business name register has me as “_____ Stilgherrian” in one place! What’s the best way to sort this mess?

via Janetter for Mac

Whacko, @ASIC_Connect, ASIC has me as “Stilgherrian Stilgherrian” in some places, “Mr Stilgherrian” in some, “Stilgherrian” in others. Fun!

via Janetter for Mac

That said, the remainder of the @ASIC_Connect sign-up process is smooth. I’ll follow up the name issue formally. I’m doing a blog series.

via Janetter for Mac

SIGH. @ASIC_Connect has two mandatory name fields, meaning I cannot match business name records to my legal name. asicconnect.asic.gov.au

via Janetter for Mac

@CheekyGhostApps Yes, Google and Apple have different ideas about whether “John” and “John” with different emails are one or two people.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CheekyGhostApps

@CheekyGhostApps Oh dear God! I guess we do assume how “easy” it is for us to pour data from iOS to Google to WP8 to whatever.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CheekyGhostApps

@CheekyGhostApps Oh delightful! Mind you, with them ALL gone you can just port them ALL back in. Even so…

@CheekyGhostApps Aweird sync error between Apple Contacts, Cobook and whatever else that duplicates people I’ve only had sex with once.

@konstantinia132 @mikko I’m sketching out some ideas for travel plans in 2014, based on media projects. It’s certainly on my list.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to konstantinia132

RT @konstantinia132: @stilgherrian @mikko actually that’s not true, they serve from 9am in Finland… [So civilised. I must visit one day.]

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve already sent off three story pitches and a photograph of a cow to editors. Productivity!

via Janetter for Mac

@charispalmer I don’t use hairspray, but I’ve found good value in huffing butane from the canisters for those tabletop gas stoves.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to charispalmer

OH NO WHAT THE FUCK HAVE YOU DONE NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

@mikko It’s a little early to be hitting the vodka, isn’t it Mikko?

RT @Captainturtle: @jeffsonstein @stilgherrian Siri with Snowden’s voice. Would you listen to the alerts more closely? [Joanna Lumley…]

via Janetter for Mac

@Colgo WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU WHY HAVEN’T YOU GOT PICTURES OF THE TAPIR THAT IS DESTROYING AUSTRALIAN WORKING FAMILIES.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colgo

THEY ARE USING NERVE GAS IN SYRIA BUT THAT’S OK BECAUSE IOS VERSION 7 AND CHEAP PASTEL CRAYONS THAT WE CAN SNIFF.

via Janetter for Mac

Suddenly remembering the thought that I should have my own breakfast television program. With Bloody Marys. To begin with.

via Janetter for Mac

I really don’t understand the news any more.

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently there isn’t a tapir loose on Wall Street.

via Janetter for Mac

As iTunes unpacks iOS version 7.0, I can hear it quietly chanting “Snow-DEN Snow-DEN Snow-DEN.”

via Janetter for Mac

Why does the tech media tell readers when a new app version comes out? Users are notified automatically, and non-users don’t care.

via Janetter for Mac

I tweeted a link to BuzzFeed. I have become Part of the Problem.

@jeffsonstein @SnarkyPlatypus I was only tied to the fence that once, and the police never laid charges.

RT @gattaca: @stilgherrian HE’S A WITCH! BURN HIM! [Yeah, people keep saying this…]

via Janetter for Mac

@gattaca Man, I grep up in the Space Age. We had entire BOOKS full of SCIENTS.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gattaca

Is there a way I can get my iPad mini to run Windows Phone 8?

via Janetter for Mac

@gattaca So you remember how the world is, you know, round…?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gattaca

Oh that’s right. This is going to make my iPad mini look like a kindergarten on bad acid.

@paulkidd It’s this living in the country what does it, Paul. You need some good healthy smog in your lungs to mellow you out.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulkidd

@marcuskelson Ah yes, the Vote Compass piece. stilgherrian.com/conversations/… It was great to talk with @CliffvdLinden about that…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcuskelson

@marcuskelson Ah yes, Mistress Insomnia is a close acquaintance.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcuskelson

@SnarkyPlatypus True, it’s no more than an hour before I normally wake, but I was up fairly late last night. Too much on my mind currently.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@marcuskelson Yes, but that’s your rostered shift. I did grow up on a farm, so I’m used to early chores, and I usually wake 0500 to 0600.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcuskelson

Now look, Brain, I know it’s early Spring, and a Full Moon tonight, but did you really have to wake me this early? Useless bloody sponge…
