@drearyclocks That’s more bitter than absinthe, but not as tasty.

@RoboFacturing Sorry, I’m not taking on any more projects at the moment. I have more than I can deal with right now.

@drearyclocks “I’ll have one hippy blues musician and one flabby company director who bought a Harley to prop up his fading manhood thanks.”

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to drearyclocks

@drearyclocks There should be carts with barrels of water touring suburban streets, drowning boomers for our pleasure. Like ice cream vans.

These people must never be allowed to meet.

Kings Cross on a Monday night. I am not causing a scene.

That moment when a cocktail party ends after 2200.

What’s interesting is that there’s still a clash between the privacy folks talking about data ownership and privacy…

via Plume for Android

The truly magnificent staff at Quay have been refilling my glass frequently. That head waiter remembers me from a certain lunch.

via Plume for Android

… when the entire point was that we didn’t WANT, businesses “leveraging the data” in the first place. remora.jpg

via Plume for Android

… and the “business friendly” types who are going “This is fantastic, how can we leverage this?”…

via Plume for Android

@kcarruthers We’ve had so much “trust” I’ve had to ask a waiter for a cloth. No “authenticity”, thank the gods.

via Plume for Android in reply to kcarruthers

By the way, you are all now going to have a new @respectconnect ID that starts with a “=”, like =complete.and.utter.arsehat

via Plume for Android

“The Internet of Things.” DRINK! “Harnessing all the endpoints.” EVEN BIGGER FUCKING DRINK.

via Plume for Android

I think I am a “journey” right now, @kcarruthers, and it will end in an A&E ward for a number of people.

via Plume for Android

Customers don’t want a fucking “journey”, @kcarruthers, they just want to pay their fucking gas bill and get on with their lives.

I might have to Pozible a couple of litres of gin for tomorrow.

I’m recording @dsearls’ comments now, will try to grab him for an interview tomorrow at the all-day buzzwordfest.

via Plume for Android

The thing I am tweeting from is the AU launch of respectnetwork.com @respectconnect

via Plume for Android

That speaker was Drummond Reid. Doc Searls is on now.

via Plume for Android

I may be snarky about this buzzword-heavy presentation, but if these guys get it right then we might finally have safe federated ID.

via Plume for Android

It’s OK, @paulwallbank, the staff at Quay are professional and my glass has already been refilled.

via Plume for Android

RT @paulwallbank The creepy guy in the anonymous mask knocks over @stilgherrian’s drink. Now things get serious. 4sq.com/1pTXxXv

We are being shown the video which was added to the website today
The audio fails. The future does not have tech rehearsals.

via Plume for Android

Technology is not the issue, legal aspects are the issue. So this is about a network of providers who agree to follow each other’s rules.

via Plume for Android

Look up the XDI protocol, that’s what they’re building on here.

via Plume for Android

If people gave their data to people like Facebook, imagine if we built a network using Privacy by Design principles. So that’s their angle.

via Plume for Android

“Ironically, the inspiration three years ago for Respect Network was Facebook.”

via Plume for Android

The video is narrated by John Hurt.

via Plume for Android

A lot of the language tonight is the right stuff about people being in control of their own data.

Visiting American founder starts with a cheesey reference to loving his first time “Down Under”. Trying not to cringe.

OH: “Why don’t you give Julian a hug? He’s bi!”

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Seriously, @PeteLawler, if they don’t play Aretha Franklin tonight I will judge the entire concept a fraud and make a scene.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

From 1830 AEST I’ll be tweeting from Respect Network launch respectnetwork.com at Circular Quay. Still don’t know what to make of it.

Does anyone remember the ABC’s “Respectember”?

sirbonar What if one of our own serving staff were to transmogrify into an assassin? Only mass blanket data retention could prevent this.

@AndrewPStreet … and at that point I really woke up. Suddenly.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to AndrewPStreet

@AndrewPStreet Last in a dream I thought, “This dream is bullshit,” so They turned up and threw me into a cell and The Mist descended…

I will be having a pre-drink drink at The Fortune of War.

Well, @mpesce, regardless of that, I’ve recorded a couple of minutes of screechy cockatoos.

via Plume for Android in reply to mpesce

@mpesce It’s mostly just sulphur-crested cockatoos so far.

Right, time to stroll from Potts Point to Circular Quay.

@PointZeroOne @dannolan @NYMag So… So you’re suggesting that we should invent Goanies?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@SnarkyPlatypus Presque toutes les décisions dans ma vie a été une erreur, mais je me réfère à demain pour la plupart.

I will be at the Respect Network launch from 1830 this evening at Circular Quay. If you want to buy me a drink before that I won’t complain.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

More info has appeared at Respect Network respectnetwork.com Presented as crowdfund (amount “raised”) but big commercial partners. Hmmm.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis à Sydney, et je vis à regretter chaque décision. Et vous?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@PointZeroOne Please see my immediately previous tweet. I think I win.

Thanks to @glengyron, I am now aware of the fact that Rolf Harris did a cover of “I Touch Myself” for Andrew Denton. youtube.com/watch?v=Z0rlYS…

You know, Media, I really don’t care why someone got stabbed in Parramatta. We learn nothing by making someone’s miserable life a spectacle.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@bengrubb But, I know the AIC researcher who handles their cybers, so I’ll email her a complaint.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb One possible reason is that unlike policymakers, police and criminologists don’t care whether fraud involved a computer or not.

@bastardsheep Isn’t that the life cycle? “New shiny, sign up now; tell all your friends; track social network; phoenix; repeat.”

@RatbagsDotCom @bastardsheep That was actually “placing” a big stake in the sand before iOS automangle did it’s work.

RT @girlgerms: Ahem: old.onefte.com/2011/01/13/kee… [Yes, exactly this. This is one of my core principles.]

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@bastardsheep And the problem with that is that whichever commercial standard gets there first, that becomes the de facto standard.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to bastardsheep

@bastardsheep I’m currently seeing as paving a big stake in the sand for a global federated ID standard,way ahead of inter-governmental.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to bastardsheep

@bastardsheep If there’s an audited code of privacy practice or data protection standard then it might be worth something.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to bastardsheep

Once when a client called with an “emergency”, I replied “Police, fire or ambulance?” Turned out they needed none of these.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@nerd___rage Exactly that. Someone running too close to their own organisation’s arbitrary internal deadline is not my emergency.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to nerd___rage

@thetowncrier WELL NOW YOU HAVE UNCOVERED MY SUBTLE PLAN SO SHOOSH BEFORE ANYONE ELSE WORKS IT OUT.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to thetowncrier

I don’t necessarily reply to email same-day, even for a few days. Neither you or I drive an ambulance, so “urgency” is just disorganisation.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Dear Everyone Who Usually Emails Me, I’m working on an iPad for a few days. Email is painful. If it’s urgent, phone to be ignored instead.

@phbarratt Jesus could walk on water. He’d just carry the refugees out into the river and dump them. Or was that baptism? So confusing.

@jon_lawrence It’s not so much the initial typing that’s a pain on the iPad, but the editing. Live tweets get carefully crafted.

I shall bleat further about @respectconnect later. I’m still not sure where it sits on the good idea to SMEG bullshit spectrum.
