I wonder whether Startuplanderas who claim to be building the “The Uber of <X>” realise that many of us hear that as “The Arseholes of <X>”.

@AB_Mycroft @amworldtodaypm Well, supply demand etc. And I agree with @riskybusiness, it’s very early days in this arena.

@0xAli True. But in combat zones, things get smashed up. Depleted uranium shot causes enough lingering problems. This could be “fun”. :/

@rpy Well that’s pretty important stuff. I hope you added a digit. Because if you didn’t, I can’t talk to you any more.

@riskybusiness @matthew_d_green That’s the noted Australian trait of understatement, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@MarkDiStef @SnarkyPlatypus Actually you’re right. It’s the PowerPoint of job applications. Oh. I feel sick now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MarkDiStef

@hughstephens @SnarkyPlatypus That’s cool. I know a guy at the FBI who can make that happen. No wait. Maybe I don’t want that.

@MarkDiStef @SnarkyPlatypus Yes, you did. For a job at BuzzFeed. [Thwap!] I don’t think that counts.

@mccarroll573 Indeed, Australia’s median illegal immigrant is a 26yo Irish male. That’s perhaps not what you mean. Oh well.

@mccarroll573 Given that I’m in the Australian context, it isn’t as sharp. As far as I know, Australians never served in Norther Ireland.

@Epigrammist @kcarruthers @SatPaper Indeed. I just re-read it. There’s really quit a disturbing mindset in there.

@kcarruthers @SatPaper Ta. I suspect most women would agree with the sentiment, if perhaps not with the way it’s expressed.

@feed_the_chooks @SnarkyPlatypus Do let me know if you get any complaints. I suspect @SatPaper’s readers aren’t too delicate though.

@feed_the_chooks @SnarkyPlatypus I agree 100%. I let the first unbleeped f-bomb go live on Adelaide daytime radio back in the late 1980s.

RT @BruceHore: When I build public key infrastructures, I drop the C word all the time. Or did you mean KPI. [Oh. Yeah. @SatPaper]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BruceHore

@R_Chirgwin @Colvinius @onemorepost @PicPedant We sorted that out last night, Richard. Do try to keep up.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

So, my very first sentence in @SatPaper drops the c-word. That’s gotta be a PKI achieved, or something.

@feed_the_chooks @glengyron Indeed, it does sum up the situation quite neatly. And that, in a nutshell, is the problem.

@jeffsonstein Is there a “far too many” in this context? Anyway, that’s some food for thought. Cheers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Yes, but they also have multiple people and high volume. Individuals can concentrate one one aspect, e.g. web item from radio.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Indeed they are. Yet I’ve been looking at the inefficiencies of having to maintain too many different workflows and topics.
