OK, so I didn’t write the most serious timeline of Australia in space that’s ever been written. crikey.com.au/2007/10/03/spu…

@NuclearAnthro Well, hey, nearly 5% of the US federal budget, wasn’t it? You can do things with that kind of money.

It’s an evening to link to my old posts about the First Space Age, part A stilgherrian.com/50-to-50/09/ and part B stilgherrian.com/50-to-50/09a/

@expectproblems I don’t know that it’s “bragging” as such, but it is remarkable that I’m still alive and, broadly speaking, sentient.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@NuclearAnthro Oh I am thoroughly enjoying what seems to be the start of the Second Space Age.

@expectproblems If we want to go proper nostalgia, some of us used “television” to watch this thing one afternoon. pic.twitter.com/wi0srEF8R5

@expectproblems There’s actually a technology for getting live video to millions of viewers simultaneous. It’s called “television”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems Yeah I saw. I was siphoning off some audio to use in the podcast tomorrow. Dropped that idea. Well, I can get it later.

@ClipperChip @thegrugq See, you’re already completely across the good-enough attitude (GNA) you need to succeed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ClipperChip

Ah good, the space thing hasn’t exploded. That’s a good sign.

via Janetter for Mac

@thegrugq @ClipperChip I’m rather taken with the concept of “Good-Enough Compliance”. I’ll suggest to my editor we do “Good-Enough Grammar”.

thegrugq This old article on Sony’s head of IT Security, and his philosophy (accept the risk) is hilarious (h/t @ClipperChip)
