Well that was a lovely unexpected encounter at the security checkpoint.

@elronxenu I’ve had a few Nikon Coolpix too, and they do seem to be the tool for the job. It brings me back to my original thought.

via Plume for Android in reply to elronxenu

@ncb They seem to be the beyond-Coolpix option, yes. I’ll have to take a closer look at the specs.

AngryRadioDJ So what are your plans for the weekend? Text me so I can call you back, edit it down and make it sound live over a 23 second intro.

OK, time to wander to the airport, I think. I saw that there are certain bus arrangements in place on the North Shore line.

via Janetter for Mac

@PeteDotAscian Thanks, I’ll [gulp!] read through the comments later.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PeteDotAscian

@PeteLawler That said, the S8100 was around AUD 300, bought in KL, and was just the ticket. [Shrugs.] I’ll cope with the phone this trip.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PeteLawler

@_DanSc I was thinking that, but no, I’ve found that I need a better lens than that. Not much better, given recent phone cameras, but a bit.

RT @ivovic: The Credlin-Abbott symbiant can use the power of Tony’s ears to evaluate all possible timelines to select the correct one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

@cafuego I do like that, and may well refer to this development in a forthcoming rant.

Dear Lazyweb, what take-everywhere compact camera, $200-$250? Used to have Nikon Coolpix S8100. Wi-Fi is nice. Willing to change tribes.

via Janetter for Mac

@oberonsghost Thank you very much. The day was actually yesterday, but I was too busy running around.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

@psc96180_pablo That said, I do find the idea of a future that involves settign fire to things to be rather promising.

@OfficialJargon I tend to agree. Hence my label for such stuff, “pop business numerology”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OfficialJargon

RT @glengyron: Can you imagine where you’ll be in the year 2000? youtube.com/watch?v=2ix-rE… [Oh nice choice!]

@sylmobile Yes, I have a window seat booked, IIRC. I suppose I should check that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

@sylmobile Why does it need a hashtag? (As an aside, NetSuite’s SuiteWorld has the hashtag .)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

@larz Please, Sir, can’t you show some sympathy? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to larz

@mikeyzx Thanks, but also check @alexkidman’s feed for the Highly Commended results as well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikeyzx

@larz Oh Dear God, I’ve had to sit through presentations by people like that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to larz

@leslienassar I think this would be a good thing. You could incentivise them with Xanax, ‘cos they probably need it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

@MsLods Thanks, Leanne, it’s shaping up to be a pleasant if hectic week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MsLods

RT @dannolan: I like to think of myself as a software tool [Good, ‘cos we all think of you that way too.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

RT @m1k3y: They should make an app for that. Then kill themselves. [I’m happy for them to skip the first step…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to m1k3y

@larz Or, since I’m flying to SFO in a few hours, I can watch it when I get there. ;) Thanks for the heads-up!

sweary_bear Dear anti-vaxers: You’re not doing “research”, you’re doing “a hobby”. If only your hobby was baking, at least we’d have fucking cupcakes.

It is a perfect example of this ultimate arsehattery. Pop business numerology + app + dashboard = insight = success. Except, no, it doesn’t.

via Janetter for Mac

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

via Janetter for Mac

So, to summarise, they’re going to build an app so that customers of their webinars can participate in Net Promoter ratings via SMS.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @CabbagePatchCat: You do seem to sit through some amazingly bullshit-filled presentations. [Not an presentation. THIS IS MY BREAKFAST.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CabbagePatchCat

Here’s the Google Books page for said book. Just read the blurb and revel in the humanity* of it all. books.google.com.au/books/about/Th…

via Janetter for Mac

“The Ultimate Question 2.0: How Net Promoter Companies Thrive in a Customer-driven World” by ‘business loyalty guru’ Fred Reichheld.

via Janetter for Mac

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I juat caught sight of the hardback book that’s sitting on the table in the “You really must read this” position.

via Janetter for Mac

He’s laughingly apologising for “calling it like it is” because “I’m a bit sleep deprived”. Uhuh.

via Janetter for Mac

This guy is talking about this red-yellow-green thing as if it’s some wonderful, insightful breakthrough in managing your business.

via Janetter for Mac

I get the distinct impression that red-yellow-green is the only thing that matters. That is the KPI.

via Janetter for Mac

“I don’t want middle-aged women whinging to me about the problems they’re having with their divorce. They need to shape up.”

via Janetter for Mac

There is some discussion of the kind of presenters they want for these webinars. “I want people I can have a drink with.”

via Janetter for Mac

I gather from that the webinar presenters will be judged via this sophisticated red-yellow-green model for workplace performance evaluation.

via Janetter for Mac

Something called “brand accelerator” is mentioned. From the context, it sounds like it’s a software tool of some kind.

via Janetter for Mac

The scale is “red, yellow, green, where green is when everything is really rockin’.”

via Janetter for Mac

After each webinar, the participants will be sent one question per day by SMS, for three days. They’ll rate their progress on a scale…

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently this “innovative solution” will take their “data visibility” to “another level”.

via Tweetbot for iOS

The world is touch points, experiences, webinars, ratings, data capture, dashboards, visibility. This is what we have become.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Sorry, an app for people to discuss how some training or development thing is going. Sounds like it totally depersonalises the whole thing.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Listening to two guys at a nearby table discussed the strategy of some marketing app. It all sounds very generic.

@Steps1and3 @MarkDiStef @DrYobbo I know nothing more than what is in the article I linked to, but that’s a US article about a US action.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Steps1and3

@Steps1and3 @MarkDiStef @DrYobbo Sure, and that’s a great thing, but it’s not the health claim that the class action dismantled.

@jpwarren Congrats to @breditor and @joshgnosis and others, yes, but while I was a finalist, I wasn’t a winner.

I suppose I should’ve organised a compact camera to replace my “lost” Nikon Coopix S8100. I can do that in The America, I guess.

@nancycato1 Thanks, Nancy. The event itself will be rather technical, but the Sonoma Valley and other tourist stuff will be fun.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nancycato1

@gusworldau I was actually thinking of that edit, but went for “the US” instead. But is that particularly American? I’ll have to check.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gusworldau

@nancycato1 Why thank you, tho on weekdays there’s plenty of other writers up early too. I’ll point out a few next week when I’m in the US.
