@kcarruthers You may have a choice of colours for your tent at the re-education camp.

Today at @zdnetaustralia I explained “Why big data evangelists should be sent to re-education camps”. zdnet.com/why-big-data-e…

via Janetter for Mac

@karinakeisler Well, yeah, but even so. “Redefine” is one of the lazy words in press releases.

@bainesy1969 Thank you. I think I need to develop a scale for punishments, Re-education camps vs stabbing vs throwing into a canal.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bainesy1969

@BarryDunning1 I haven’t gotten around to that yet. Next week is already pretty busy.

@AnalyticsChap You are most kind. But I stand upon the shoulders of giants.

I’m on the panel “Politics of Social” on Wed 24 Sep at 1000. Moderator is @kcarruthers. socialmediaweek.org/sydney/events/…

via Janetter for Mac

Next week is Social Media Week Sydney. There’s some interesting stuff on the program. socialmediaweek.org/sydney/schedul…

via Janetter for Mac

@pat_gardner I haven’t had the energy to read it yet. Which is basically the point.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pat_gardner

@rachel612 @zdnetaustralia Thank you. I think my secret aim was to annoy pretty much everyone in that piece.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rachel612

@R_Chirgwin @juhasaarinen Jesus, Richard, have you ever been there when @AntonyGreenABC and I are in the same room? It’s a bit scary.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@bigrb I suspect most people don’t notice them. They’re mostly another vanity metric, directly or indirectly.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bigrb

@Stumboo @riskybusiness Yeah, there’s an argument to made in favour of that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Stumboo

@bigrb Yes. This happened last year. Twitter verified the Australian media en masse when just before they opened their Sydney office.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bigrb

5.30pm Friday: Attorney-General releases government’s response to PJCIS inquiry into National Security Legislation Amendment Bill. Bah.

via Janetter for Mac

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Why big data evangelists should be sent to re-education camps” zdnet.com/why-big-data-e…

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin @riskybusiness It could also deal with the @bunjaree antechinus plague swiftly. As long as I’m not there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@Stumboo Nah bugger that. @riskybusiness and I are a long way apart. It’s safer for everyone that way.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Stumboo

@riskybusiness Oh. Yeah, at 3m you’ve got one solid snake! The possum takedown must’ve been… a scary sound.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness Lucky you. I hope you don’t have the same snake phobia as I do. On the plus side, no mice!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@garthk No problems. I’m currently clearing email from more than a month ago. I miss stuff all the time.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garthk

@drearyclocks @dobes I suspect he’s done both, to ensure success.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to drearyclocks

How come @dobes gets a “holiday”?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @williamslachlan: this new dictionary app will redefine words themselves [This is why you’re better than @expectproblems and @chrisjrn.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to williamslachlan

Does a technology vendor ever release a product that DOESN’T “redefine” something?

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Je me rappelle que je n’ai pas encore regardé l’épisode de cette semaine.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@joshgnosis @drewsheldrick @ssharwood Which makes the whole thing rather good on several levels.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

@SnarkyPlatypus “Nations avec les meilleurs canaux ont les meilleures politiques. Discuter.”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@drewsheldrick @ssharwood I’m fairly sure that’s intended to be the Attorney-General, not Malcolm Turnbull. Baldness, you see.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to drewsheldrick

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. La semaine a pris fin, et je n’ai pas tué personne, que je sache. Et vous?

I can’t tell you anything more about “The Code”, @MWhalan, ‘cos I signed an NDA. So, your theory may or may not be true.

via Janetter for Mac

That @mscott tweet reminded me. “The Code” starts on ABC1 this Sunday night at 2030. I’ve seen it. You will like it. abc.net.au/tv/programs/th…

via Janetter for Mac

mscott Only one day to go until we enter the Wasteland. Watch on iview from 10am tomorrow! iview.abc.net.au/programs/iview…

I wonder whether @garthk has seen the DM that I sent him this morning.

via Janetter for Mac

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia. It contains big data, gamification, re-education camps, and a pin.

via Janetter for Mac

@PeteDotAscian @JL_Whitaker @ordinarytanya That’s not a whinge, that’s assessing the various options being put forward against criteria.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PeteDotAscian

“Psychotomimetic” or “psychotogenic” is the thing. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychotom… Thanks @PeterWJHarrigan, but too obscure for my audience, I think.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s OK, @PeteDotAscian @ordinarytanya @JL_Whitaker, I’ve moved on. Deadlines. You gotta be quick.

via Janetter for Mac

So “hallucinogen” it shall be. It’s better-known than technical terms. @drsimmo @AndySHastings @mileshstandish @quarrellous @MacqDictionary

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks, @drsimmo @AndySHastings @mileshstandish @quarrellous. “Psychotropic” is too broad for my need. @MacqDictionary has no suggestion…

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Lazyweb, is there a specific term for the set of drugs that can induce mania? “Causal agent” seems lame, “hallucinogen” inaccurate.

via Janetter for Mac

@wolfcat @kcarruthers Well, the event IS being held at a pub…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wolfcat

@kcarruthers Now look, only two days ago I WAS the moderator!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

I’m on a Social Media Week panel “Politics of Social” next Wed 24 Sep at 1000. Moderator is @kcarruthers eek. socialmediaweek.org/sydney/events/…

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan: 0910 @abcgoldcoast; write for @zdnetaustralia; @5at5daily returns; re-plan next week after an interesting phone call; quiet night.

via Janetter for Mac

@BXGD Jesus wept, that does change things a bit. Assuming everything is as reported.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BXGD

@BXGD Have I missed something? I was very busy yesterday and didn’t catch the news.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BXGD

I’ll be talking about the allure of queuing for a new iPhone etc on @abcgoldcoast at 0910 AEST. You may listen at abc.net.au/goldcoast

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@jonoabroad I am not aware of this. I haven’t gotten any edition yet, as it happens.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to jonoabroad

@aleeb88 Oh, I hadn’t put the G20 into my thinking. Is that bad?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to aleeb88

Fri plan, draft: Write for @zdnetaustralia (from Thu); @5at5daily, finally; re-plan next week after the interesting phone call; quiet night.

via Janetter for Mac

Friday. Because it probably can’t get any worse. Friday.
