Back at @bunjaree, and burning some dinosaurs to stop the persistent beeping noise.

@mattdasilva It’s French, so it’s cultured. You wouldn’t understand.

SofieHagen I would rather have Snakes on a Plane than Teenagers on a Bus.

@OzNigel Yeah exactly that. Some of us survived the first dotcom boom and this second one is familiar territory.

via TweetDeck in reply to OzNigel

Look, @wolfcat @paulwallbank, I know I fisted the whole of Twitter one Saturday night, but it was all much smaller then.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @paulwallbank Yeah I don’t know that the world needs reminding of what I look like with a beard.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @paulwallbank During the first dotcom boom, the Fairfax startup I worked for was dismayed when I cut my hair short.

They should’ve done us all a favour and just punched out that arsehat keynote speaker.

via TweetDeck

@jkerrison @paulwallbank I should just send out the photos in advance of my first meeting.

via TweetDeck in reply to jkerrison

@SnarkyPlatypus @paulwallbank It’s really about the shoes. I need the shoes.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @paulwallbank Hey, I’ve worked OK with IBM, Fairfax, Deloitte, KPMG, PwC… for certain values of “OK”.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@paulwallbank Do I need to remind you AGAIN that there was no threat, just a vocal description of my internal moods and desires.

via TweetDeck in reply to paulwallbank

@jc52622810 Heh. I have seen fire engines in Newtown use lights and sirens to do a U-turn and pick up their take-away meals. So maybe.

via TweetDeck in reply to jc52622810

Why does @paulwallbank get invited to all the corporate lunches and I don’t?

via TweetDeck

@OzNigel @R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank You can’t address every issue in the world in a single op-ed column. Fight one battle at a time.

via TweetDeck in reply to OzNigel

@OzNigel @R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank Ah yes, well, I think I know what you mean, and I chose to let the speaker’s narrative stand for now.

via TweetDeck in reply to OzNigel

@R_Chirgwin @jpwarren What, the drugs were as bad as that? No wonder all that music was so shit.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@jpwarren This is an interesting question, yes. Further investigation is required. Do you know a vet?

via Plume for Android in reply to jpwarren

@OzNigel @R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank Actually on that, I did choose not to mention some extra things about FXJ that weren’t mentioned. A blur.

via Plume for Android in reply to OzNigel

@OzNigel @R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank I got it wrong? Or I quoted someone else who got it wrong? I was largely paraphrasing the presentation.

via Plume for Android in reply to OzNigel

@jpwarren Oh God, they should round up all the people who make those pre-keynote videos and overdose them on ketamine and broken glass.

via Plume for Android in reply to jpwarren

@caseyjohnellis @SmallTimeVC Hey it’s all cool, Casey. It’s not like political media advisors, who begin by calling you a cunt.

via Plume for Android in reply to caseyjohnellis

@caseyjohnellis @SmallTimeVC Oh wait. That bit’s meant to be a secret, isn’t it.

via Plume for Android in reply to caseyjohnellis

@caseyjohnellis @SmallTimeVC Thanks. I appreciate recommendations from large-scale criminal organisations masquerading as helpful startups.

via Plume for Android in reply to caseyjohnellis

@SmallTimeVC @AngelCube I already have questions for our conversation now. Looking forward to it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SmallTimeVC

@mattdasilva Well they wouldn’t have needed lights and sirens for that, they know which train I’m on and where I am.

via TweetDeck in reply to mattdasilva

@charliedrummond Ah, um, yes. That’s an even more disturbing image.

via TweetDeck in reply to charliedrummond

Police cars with full light and sound show heading at high speed up the Great Western Highway through Hazelbrook. Something’s up.

via TweetDeck

@SmallTimeVC Ooooh, right then. Cheers. I do like to know when I’ve been an utter twat, so I can rectify it. Fun times.

via TweetDeck in reply to SmallTimeVC

@SmallTimeVC Shall do. I’ll sort that tomorrow, ‘cos evening brainfade has set in. Thanks.

via TweetDeck in reply to SmallTimeVC

@SmallTimeVC Or maybe it’s a coffee or ale conversation next time we’re in the same city.

via TweetDeck in reply to SmallTimeVC

@R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank Um, the majority of DisruptoCon was very good. I was just bouncing off one little bit that blipped up.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@SmallTimeVC Oh. I’d definitely find an explanation of where I’m wrong in that yarn useful. A phone call early next week, or something?

via TweetDeck in reply to SmallTimeVC

@KarlskiB That is really entirely your own problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to KarlskiB

@RealDavidHeath Ah yes, I see that now too. It’s a very curious phenomenon.

@monsieurarion Oh that’s delightful, thank you. I shall include them in tomorrow’s edition.

@TimNoonan Also, how the fuck even can you be 50?

via TweetDeck in reply to TimNoonan

@TimNoonan And then every five years until you die, or they figure you’ve lived long enough and don’t matter any more. Joy.

@lukebunyip Ah. I don’t think I’ve ever read any Lovecraft.

Improving on the plan.

@lukebunyip I’m sure. I just don’t know what that hashtag means.

via Plume for Android in reply to lukebunyip

@parisba No, I think I’ve experienced a totally different set of Richard Branson’s Hotspots.

via Plume for Android in reply to parisba

@jonoabroad @19bk69 But that’s how it starts. It’s best to nip these things in the bud.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@19bk69 @jonoabroad No we shouldn’t, because I can’t stand mass gatherings.

via TweetDeck in reply to 19bk69

I imagine, however, that they’re generally more saggy than they were in the 1960.

via TweetDeck

No, @VirginAustralia, I really don’t wish to know where “Richard Branson’s Hotspots” are. That’s all a bit too graphic.

via TweetDeck

Discovering far too much about certain people’s ideas of “comfortable” clothing.

via TweetDeck

“There is no dress code for Masterclasses. Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in.” @GuardianAus lives dangerously.

@ataraxite Periscope seems to have about a tenth of a functionality of Ustream or Livestream. I wouldn’t soil myself with it.

via TweetDeck in reply to ataraxite

@lukebunyip I suspect that you expect me to know what that means.

via TweetDeck in reply to lukebunyip

When the Australian Government’s gift of a free faecal occult blood test kit arrives, I shall live-stream the proceedings.

via TweetDeck

@AtomicMPC Yes it would. You should do this.

I have experienced this joy in the past, and I will soon get to experience it again. twitter.com/SydneyTom_/sta…

@dannolan Yep, it’s free. On every fifth birthday. So there’s something for you to look forward to.

via TweetDeck in reply to dannolan

@nicilind Plus perhaps some multiple of five years. It’s at age 50, 55, 60, 65, 70 and 74. The last one being 4 years, not 5, is reassuring.

Me at @zdnetaustralia Wednesday: “New York’s ‘Silicon Valley envy’ gives Sydney fintech edge”, quoting @kimheras zdnet.com/article/new-yo…

via TweetDeck

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia. It contains disruption, entrepreneurs, and bullshit.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad It’s approaching four years old, has only 4GB of RAM, and I suspect the HDD is starting to go dodgy.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad Hey, what? I’m doing fine, thanks. Struggling to write when my computer decides to go into slow motion, otherwise good.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@kimheras @DisruptoCon Thanks, Kim. It’s always nice to discover another example of organisational culture change being the real challenge.

via TweetDeck in reply to kimheras

@jodiem @saasu @Westpac Yeah, there’s a whole layer of tools that I haven’t explored yet. Oh well, new financial year coming up… ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

@jodiem @saasu @Westpac Recently @MYOB announced a similar thing with @OnDeckCapital businessspectator.com.au/news/2015/4/15… Loans approved on live data.

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

@jodiem Data flows the other way too. @saasu data flows into @Westpac’s tools for advising the business customers. And more, I assume.

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

@aggerchez Is the dream of a leech worse than an actual leech?

via TweetDeck in reply to aggerchez

@saasu And what’s even handier is that I’m currently a @Westpac customer. I’ll be less inclined to churn away as I review my banking needs.

@oberonsghost @jeamland It’s got to that phase of the transmission, has it?

via TweetDeck in reply to oberonsghost

@Ausgrid As an aside, are the causes of the outages documented anywhere handy at all? Or only in annual or other consolidated reports?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Ausgrid

@Ausgrid Thanks for getting that fixed so quickly, especially given the mess you had to deal with after last week’s storms.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Ausgrid

@jeamland I try to leave all those sort of concerns at ohm.

@stufromoz I am in the affected area, as detailed in @Ausgrid’s tweet. That’s as fine-grained as it gets.

via TweetDeck in reply to stufromoz

@jeamland I try not to be negative about electrons. No, wait.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

And the electricity has returned. Thank you, @Ausgrid.

via TweetDeck

Actually that’s pretty close to reality. The hotel has suffered a blackout, also affecting 3000 other @Ausgrid customers in the area.

Thursday. Darkness descends over the Earth, and a sense of dread foreboding permeates the day. And that’s just the start. Thursday.
