So further funds mean articles / podcasts that supporters help direct and that’ll be released under Creative Commons. pozible.com/corruptednerds1

Um, oh OK. Wow. That’s 100% of initial target reached in under 17 hours. Thank you so much. pozible.com/corruptednerds1

@hardy_bm Shoosh. People spend BILLIONS on the assumption that it’s not.

Here’s an update, though really it’s just what I said on Twitter, but in whole sentences and paragraphs and shit. pozible.com/project/32027#…

via Janetter for Mac

In any event, you are all very special people and I love youse all. But your comments are getting weird. pozible.com/project/32027#…

via Janetter for Mac

I’m hoping you’ll kick it over the line tonight so I can book cheap(er) flights. Something special for who does that? pozible.com/corruptednerds1

via Janetter for Mac

We’re at 87% of the initial target. At 100% I book the journey. Everything past that goes to the production pool. pozible.com/corruptednerds1

Thank you to everyone who’s already pledged actual money towards me going to Breakpoint and Ruxcon. Much appreciated. pozible.com/corruptednerds1

via Janetter for Mac

@paintmehappy @purserj Yes, thank you for kicking it off. I have earmarked you for something special.

@LucasJamesAU Indeed, if I had a PA I would fire him or her immediately. Alas, I must’ve consented to a breakfast meeting. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LucasJamesAU

@smperris Bloody Marys are indeed a breakfast drink, but I suspect they won’t be on offer tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

@chrisjrn Well assuming we do push this over the line for @ruxcon (chickens not hatched yet), I’ll try for Kiwicon and, yes, .

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

Wait. Why does my schedule say that I have a breakfast meeting tomorrow?

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, here is the wine.

via Janetter for Mac

Right, back at my accommodation. Shoes off and, once my wine is delivered, pants off. Then I can look at all these messages.

@dave_lang @phildobbie You are most kind. With luck the Corrupted Nerds podcast will become a weekly thing.

@franksting @sylmobile I was defeated earlier by the Automangle. I was not actually at the CBD.

@JennaPrice Hah! The link was in the immediately preceding tweet, at least I thought it was. Who knows what the new government has done.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to JennaPrice

@JennaPrice Oh, I’m attempting a crowd funded journalism thing. If my explanation is a bit scattered right now we can blame Singha.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to JennaPrice

@bengrubb Thank you, but the chickens ain’t hatched yet.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to bengrubb

We’re currently at 73%of the initial target! which gets me there! and then it all goes into the story production pool.

Intel on where other people are drinking is possibly out of date.

Right, so now there’s time to read everything that’s accumulated through the day. This may take a while.

I know that looks slightly luxurious, but fuck it, I’ve been up since 0500 and it’s 10 days since my last day off.

@michaelneale It didn’t look like that sort of business meeting, but then maybe it’s not like on TV.

via Plume for Android in reply to michaelneale

Who the fuck has a business meeting at a cupcake shop?

@akent It’s a corner where lights are often ignored. Makes sense to put a few heads on spikes.

@skeevestevens It looks more like they’re after jaywalkers. Maybe 7 on foot, one or two bikes, one pursuit car, unmanned.

@DrParnassus Just in transit between meetings, well, I was then. And now the second meeting is finished.

I can interact properly after this lunch. But I’m surprised and grateful at the pace of response to that @Pozible.

via Tweetbot for iOS

I launched a @Pozible to cover Breakpoint and Ruxcon. pozible.com/corruptednerds1 Already 45% of initial target, then it’s all for stories. Ta!

“”Rubicon”? Thank you, automangle. I mean Ruxcon.

SolidWorks’ Sharon Toh explains all the things instagram.com/p/fgpW7mCFqg/

“Control” would be the more cynical way of putting it.

Launching my.solidworks.com today. Seems like they’re trying to collect the social media under one umbrella. “Better user experience.”

via Tweetbot for iOS

They’re teaching SolidWorks in 25,000 schools, not sure if that’s globally or in a region “Asia Pacific South”.

via Tweetbot for iOS

They claim SolidWorks is the largest 3D design community, with 2 million users.

Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks is the event host. They’re 10% of the conglomerate’s employees, 20% of revenue.

@Pozible Yes, I saw that, and it’s likely to fit with some of my ongoing ideas. Very like the community broadcasting model.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to Pozible

@Pozible But that said, any freelance or “independent” media has to continually reinvent itself. In a way, it’s nothing new.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to Pozible

@Pozible Indeed. The first one has novelty factor. The second the bubble of enthusiasm. Past that? [Shrug.]

@carolduncan It’s all much appreciated, and it does look like it’s going to work. Chickens hatched, etc. @bradatslice @kcarruthers

@bradatslice @Pozible @carolduncan @kcarruthers I’ll be answering any questions in daily updates. Transparency will be key, I reckon.

@kcarruthers It’s a hacker conference. There must be a unicorn of some sort there.

@carolduncan @bradatslice @kcarruthers I managed a community radio station once. “Hey, want is to do X? Money please!” is a familiar model.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to carolduncan

@bradatslice @carolduncan @kcarruthers The funding model is detailed in the @Pozible project notes. It won’t fit into a tweet.

@jonoabroad Yes, as. I’ve said to some others, what better way to understand crowdfunding than by doing.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad Yes, thank you very much. I’ve been catching up on some other things on the train, but I did see your name scroll past. Thanks.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@decryption Thanks. Yes, the Ruxcon program looks excellent. It’ll certainly inform future stories too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to decryption

If it hits initial target by this evening I can book cheaper flights and accommodation, and that means more for the production pool. [Hint.]

via Janetter for Mac

Wow. My @Pozible for Breakpoint and Ruxcon is already at 37% of initial target. pozible.com/corruptednerds1 Past that, it’s all for stories.

via Janetter for Mac

I smell burning brakes.

@R_Chirgwin @oberonsghost I believe that it’s an inherited trait, so it makes sense.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @oberonsghost Interesting. Does he, or did he stutter? That’s all to do with the feedback loop of listening to your own speech.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@oberonsghost The cicadas have been truly deafening. It’s really hard to convey in a recording.

The 0837 to Sydney is usually an 8-car set. Today it’s a 4-car set. We’ll all become very close friends before we get to Central.

@alexkidman Thanks so much. It’ll be an interesting experiment, no matter what happens.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alexkidman

@cheshireb Why thank you. But I won’t put you out of a job. Promise.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to cheshireb

@stokely Thanks, Sarah. It’ll be interesting to see how this goes. It’s very short notice, but it’s also a well-targeted niche audience.

via Janetter for Mac

@missdi_k Taiga is inflatable, you know. All we need is some helium…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to missdi_k

@alexkidman Having managed a community radio station, the @Pozible model seems quite familiar. Particularly when they launch subscriptions.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alexkidman

@snare I have made use of your nose, in the third image here. If you have an itch, this explains why. pozible.com/corruptednerds1

via Janetter for Mac

@missdi_k The problem is, one of those goddam hackers will probably gut Taiga and turn him into a drone.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to missdi_k

@missdi_k Why thank you, and I reckon Taiga can certainly tag along. The bright red will stand out from the relentless black of hackerdom.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to missdi_k

So that’s 4% funded in the first 90 minutes. If this pace holds (please!) then, yes, to Breakpoint and Ruxcon I go. pozible.com/corruptednerds1
