@old_uncle_jack @sroc @rhysam Well news reporters have already done that. Opinion and analysis writers then work from that material.

@old_uncle_jack @sroc @rhysam SBS is unlikely to say more, since legal action is a real possibility.

via TweetDeck in reply to old_uncle_jack

@old_uncle_jack @sroc @rhysam’s piece? It’s opinion, not news, so you don’t usually seek a statement. SBS’s statements are elsewhere.

@feed_the_chooks Look, you and your hang-up with “facts”… We do live in a past-fact world now. And that’s a fact.

Hearing @MYOB’s story for the second time, I’m reminded how so many of these stories are about culture change, not technology.

Being trolled from the stage. It’s as if @MYOB’s @JamesScollay has been taking lessons from @jturner_ibrs.

@stitchsarah Ah, no brainspace to go down that rabbit hole just now.

Rohrsheim ends by repeating his advice to entrepreneurs: What bothers you? Go for that.

via TweetDeck

I haven’t tweeted anything from this yet because so far it’s the familiar story of Uber as told by Uber.

via TweetDeck

@pelagikat Did I imply that? (Also, room has 4 women out of about 35 in the audience.)

Rohrsheim makes the good point that “entrepreneur” isn’t a career, but something you do because it personally matters to you.

What intrigues me most about Freedom Boy is that he’s sold his credibility so cheap, really, given the decades of ridicule ahead.

There’s not much joined-up thinking going on in Freedom Boy’s head, is there.
