ONE OF THREE WORDS is either a brilliant last-minute game or completely stupid, and I’m not sure which.

I’ll update the charts for “The 9pm Urgent Hardware Refresh” early tomorrow morning.

@SteveBenner09 Oh, I didn’t see what you were replying to there. Now I see why you ask. I’ll have a squizz then.

@SteveBenner09 No thoughts whatsoever. I’ve never used github, and haven’t ever paid much attention to developer tools.

@Text100aus Thanks, as always, for a lovely evening.

I’m too tired to party on. Sorry, @Text100aus, I’m wandering back to the hotel.

Here’s @onthemedia’s story on, say, non-white passengers get rejected by drivers. onthemedia.org/story/customer…

Why are people chuckling with amusement at someone who deliberately broke T&Cs and then suffered for it? Karma’s a bitch.

via TweetDeck

It took AGES for people to begin to trust Vodafone AU again after they built a totally new 4G network.

via TweetDeck

Case in point? Vodafone AU. We all knew their network was shit (a few years back), despite the usual TVCs.

via TweetDeck

Wait. Brand trust has ALWAYS been based on a kazillion individual interactions, not thumping them with brand identity.

via TweetDeck

@elronxenu That’s exactly the point, yes. Spotify and iTunes were examples on screen.

Ah yes, Uber Kittens. Mistaking a stunt designed to give the impression of demand with a real business-model test.

I wonder whether we’ll hear about ANY negative aspects of this revolution, or about ideas or startups which failed.

The thing about “paying for access” is that you pay and pay and pay forever, yet have nothing to bequeath your kids.

We are being shown how to train a neural network to answer questions about analogies. “Paris is to France as Rome is to…?”

Being shown a technique to efficiently pre-train a neural network. “You’d have to have a twisted brain to come up with this.” Um, agreed.

“So this is just your familiar three-layer neural network…” Um, yup.
