@Steve_Lockstep You are most kind, but I know too many real experts out there to be comfortable with the title.

And that radio spot is done. Must defuse this “cyber security expert” thing. though.

On hold with @2ue to talk about “swatting”, continuing yesterday’s chat. stilgherrian.com/conversations/… Listen at 2ue.com.au, or not.

It’s bound to work for Gerry Harvey at The Entertainment Quarter, @vealmince, because every Westfield mall just vaporised. Oh wait.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vealmince

I am informed that I will be on the wireless after the 1730 news headlines.

via Janetter for Mac

Great “plan”, Gerry. Shops and restaurants next to sportgrounds, so you’ll create an experience with sport, food and retail. GOOD IDEA.

via Janetter for Mac

“We’ve got to work out how to make it buzz,” says Gerry Harvey. EXACTLY. Gerry, that is the very effing point.

via Janetter for Mac

Gerry Harvey’s “plan” is to “create an experience with food and retail so people will want to come back”, to “make it buzz”. Well, yes.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve heard Gerry Harvey talk about The Entertainment Quarter three times now, and his “plans” are nothing but waffle.

So General Hurley is to be the next governor of NSW. Another post-military appointment. Curious.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m having trouble finding reliable evidence for a formal swatting point-scoring system. Just colloquial “bonus points for a helicopter”.

@RSAConference @ZDNet Erm, it’s the opening up of the APIs in iOS 8 that introduces risks. I actually say Swift may help mitigate them.
