@niallclugston Oh. I think I might give up on corrections for tonight.

@rgmerk @Andrew_Zammit Well, data retention of some sort of a key part of the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime. We’ve agreed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rgmerk

@sylmobile Well, @Pozible is soon launching a subscription thingo as well as the project thingo. That could well be deployed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

Belinda-Jane Davis, reporter for the Maitland Mercury, is talking on @ABCNews24. Sounds like you should read what she writes for tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

So my “Will Attorney-General Brandis be the spooks’ breakwater?” from Tuesday would seem to be a QTWTAIN. zdnet.com/will-attorney-…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Andrew_Zammit: I suspect there’ll be another push for data retention, but this time without going through a committee. [Agreed 100%.]

via Janetter for Mac

Brandis: “The appointment will underline the strong national security focus which I intend to bring to the Attorney-General’s portfolio.”

via Janetter for Mac

New attorney-general Senator George Brandis’ chief of staff will be Paul O’Sullivan, former Director-General of ASIO, amongst other roles.

via Janetter for Mac

Should you care to make the correction to what you retweeted, Senator Doug Cameron was at his home gown of Glenbrook, not Glenfield.

via Janetter for Mac

@ando76 Oh did I? Bloody fingers. I didn’t quite realise what you were asking, to be honest.

@prestontowers A previous Labor local member has already lost her home.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to prestontowers

@prestontowers He does. He said that as soon as the news broke he gave his staff the rest of the day off and went to be with his people.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to prestontowers

I see @ABCNews24 has decided to drop that useless graphical “map” and show official bushfire maps. Good. Much greater information density.

via Janetter for Mac

@ando76 Glenbook is a village in the lower Blue Mountains, right next to where one of the major bushfires is destroying houses as we speak.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ando76

I’d pay to see that.

via Janetter for Mac

Sen Doug Cameron lives in Glenfield. Just said on @ABCNews24 “If anyone tells me there’s no climate change, I will go berserk in Parliament.

via Janetter for Mac

New photo: “Bushfire sunset, Camperdown”, such beauty caused by such destruction. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks, @retrogrrl. Where I stay at @bunjaree is a long way from the fires, though of course I’d have to travel through affected areas.

via Janetter for Mac

Tonight the Blue Mountains burn. This photo was taken at Wentworth Falls one year and five days ago. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @moldor: @stilgherrian @GeordieGuy @prestontowers So you think !! [I’m watching the news. Trains are still OK, and @bunjaree is clear.

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks for your thoughts, @GeordieGuy @prestontowers @moldor, I’m in Sydney tonight but due to return to the Mountains tomorrow evening.

@GTRoberts No, I just have the base camera. That accessory handle / extra power thingo looks quite good though.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis heureux de voir que tout le monde occupe le terrain moral cet après-midi. Le sommet est bondé. Et vous?

@PointZeroOne Yeah, I had thought 6 days was tight but possible. Under 17 hours, tho? That’s remarkable.

via Plume for Android in reply to PointZeroOne

@adavid So far it looks like the nearest serious fire is 8km away, but all those fires this early in the season is a bit scary.

via Plume for Android in reply to adavid

@PointZeroOne Heh. It’s true, the initial target being met means I’ll be there reporting. But more money means time for me to create more.

@mpesce @glengyron @michaelmeloni You guys really want this Ponycon coverage to be a thing, don’t you.

via Plume for Android in reply to mpesce

@rexster Thanks very much. It’ll be interesting to see how this works and whether it can be replicated.

via Plume for Android in reply to rexster

Official bushfire warning list is at rfs.nsw.gov.au and it’s rather long. Eek.

I’m sure the post-apocalyptic orange glow over the Sydney CBD this afternoon is nothing to worry about. Nothing at all. [Coughing harder.]

@hardy_bm Part of me wants to call you out for being too philosophical too early, but that’s actually pretty much spot on.

@missdi_k Thank you. I’m not sure that I did anything special, in terms of strategy. Novelty factor helps.

RT @jeamland: Of course I mean “security nerd” in the sense of “security blanket”. [So, I have to chew on the corner of the security nerd?]

via Janetter for Mac

Y’see, @jeamland, what happens out of that pool will be workshopped with supporters as “Stream 2” items. All explained in the thing.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: So @stilgherrian, how much of the money goes to the production of “The 9pm Drunk Security Nerds Edict”? [Up to the donors.]

via Janetter for Mac

It hit 100% of initial target in under 17 hours, so all funds from here on go into the story production pool. Thanks. pozible.com/corruptednerds1

via Janetter for Mac

If you missed it yesterday, I launched a @Pozible thing to cover Breakpoint and Ruxcon hacker conferences next week. pozible.com/corruptednerds1

Thank you, @stufromoz @SMinney, I’m astounded by the rapid response of everyone yesterday. It’ll be fun to see how things unfold from here.

@R_Chirgwin Thank you. I’m surprised it happened so quickly. Now it’ll be interesting to see how much can be added to the story pool.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

That’s ‘cos @Pozible quite sensibly transfer credit card payments 7 days after project expiry date (22/10) to allow time to handle problems.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll have to book the accommodation later, because I’m a bit behind schedule this morning, and cashflows for that matter.

It’s Thursday, people, so prepare yourselves.
