OK, I’m going away before it becomes tomorrow, because then it would be Monday, and that would just be far too annoying.

@raaahbin @jeamland Hey, they’re both good at the “quick glue” kind of thing. The Araldite and Blu-Tak of the internet…

@mgherman @elronxenu @NewtonMark Oh yes, media means advertising means something boastworthy.

@zackwhittaker You should probably also disregard the number of empty cartridge cases scattered in that photo.,

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zackwhittaker

@zackwhittaker Well, yes, I think we could start at this level and work up. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

@zackwhittaker I’d be a lot better if I had a gun, obviously.

@elronxenu @NewtonMark @mgherman Well, that’s all down to the “Twitter is a media company” tribe’s victory over “Twitter is infrastructure”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to elronxenu

@NewtonMark @mgherman @elronxenu An internet without Instagram is not worth having, surely that’s self-evident.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @mgherman @elronxenu Hence my original comment about saying goodbye to the open internet. Appification is a road to Hell.

@smartbrain Yeah I was thinking the number of units looked small. I’ll read it properly in the morning. I’ll be asleep soon. I hope.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smartbrain

@smartbrain Thanks for the heads-up. It’s not something I’d be doing myself, but it’s stuff I need to know about.

RT @mgherman: @elronxenu I thought @stilgherrian ‘s complaint was more along these lines: gigaom.com/2012/12/09/ins… [Yes, pretty much.]

via Janetter for Mac

@elronxenu @mgherman Well yes, anyone wanting something “personal use” out of Twitter is a potential revenue stream.

@petstarr The South Australian Nazis? I’d have to ask the person who originally tweeted it. They’re probably seeing me tweet this now.

@leslienassar Still, free accommodation and meals, and time to exercise. Could be a positive overall.

What the internet needs most right now is a Twitter account tweeting random, out-of-context old photos without credit, calling it history.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @expectproblems: One of the groomsmen is tickling the groom’s nipples on the dance floor, near as I can tell. [It’s a Russian tradition?]

I assume, @WSJD @jturner_ibrs you just set the “caring” flag in each database record. Job done.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: @stilgherrian @expectproblems Minsk is in Belarus… [He said “which suburb”. Belarus is a suburb of Russia.]

via Janetter for Mac

From now on, @WSJD @jturner_ibrs, there should be a rule that we can only collect caring big data.

@ApostrophePong Oh I like that extension of the analogy! I’ll have to add that into the narrative next time I write or talk about it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@amandakendle True. Of course the better course of action is to not watch television to begin with.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to amandakendle

Ah, it’s that time of the evening when Twitter goes funny ‘cos you’ve all started watching TV and you start having feeling.

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong I think your theory, that the washing machine works a little better each time around the cycle, is true.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@expectproblems Perhaps Mr @JohnBirmingham could do a blogue on the seven stages of a Russian wedding. Dancing then Nakedness then Truth.

It’s just a fucking TV program. Watch something else. Do something else. It’ll still be as good (or not) when you can get around to it.

via Janetter for Mac

Ta, @purserj @prestontowers. Just entitled arsehats of various species whining that their “I want, I want” is answered with a “No”. Diddums.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. Yes. Many copyright feelings on the internets today, there are. What triggered them? Is it arsehattery I should write about?

via Janetter for Mac

I see that @R_Chirgwin has fled the state. Probably a good move.
