@ABillionSuns Thanks. That’s a good start, though something directly on OS X or a *nix tool would be better for my own needs. Ta.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ABillionSuns

@smperris Hah. No, that’s all good. I should have been more specific.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

No, @smperris @tscribe, Twitter’s own export “feature” is on manual request, for the entire database each time, and is not quick-turnaround.

“Not everyone will transition to jobs in the new economy,” says one expert. So where’d they end up? The service industry, Walmart, he says.

The main thing I’m learning, and which I suppose I already knew, is that political rhetoric about labour markets is not based on reality.

This program also has a soundbite of Tony Abbott talking about “job snobs”, people who are “too fussy” and want to work on their own terms.
