@AdrianDeLuca76 @SPEAKINGinTECH @Knieriemen I’m sulking now, because I’ll be at the other end of the country on 26 October.

I think that’s late enough for work this evening, given that I usually start very early.

I suppose I’d better transcribe the bits of this interview I need for tomorrow. I’ll go and do that now. You watch TV or something.

@MolksTVTalk We still talking about the ore trucks? Or Turnbull?

via Plume for Android in reply to MolksTVTalk

@mumbletwits Yeah, I was listening to Jones and Hadley endlessly praising him all that first week.

via Plume for Android in reply to mumbletwits

@MolksTVTalk Yep. ZDNet had a photo feature about that a couple years back.

via Plume for Android in reply to MolksTVTalk

@mumbletwits For some reason, this makes me laugh with more than a bit of schadenfreude. Such complexity for the poor possums.

@MolksTVTalk It’s been interesting to track the timelines of that development.

@whiteswine @carolprobets The other year we visited an early-primary school near Cowra where lapwings had nested and attacked the students.

@BundyB So what you’re saying is that lapwings are adapting to modern urban society. Cool.

via TweetDeck in reply to BundyB

@ElishaPearce @carolprobets Wow. That’s pretty cool. Glad you did the story, Elisha.

@mpesce @twistartupsaus I am indeed doing this thing. Looking forward to it.

@semibogan @agelastic Thank you, you two, you’re such a cheerful way to start a Sunday.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

Why is @VentureBeat tweeting a headline 5 days after they were shown it’s utterly wrong. Unethical? Or just useless? twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck

@dahowlett @VentureBeat This ABC @BackgroundBrief (2013) explains how bad the Cabcharge domination has been in AU. abc.net.au/radionational/…

via TweetDeck in reply to dahowlett

@dahowlett @VentureBeat Globally, sure. From an AU perspective, the ACCC hitting Cabcharge with a big stick is an interesting message.

via TweetDeck in reply to dahowlett

What’s also interesting is that comments told @VentureBeat the headline was backwards FIVE DAYS AGO but it’s not fixed.

via TweetDeck

The @VentureBeat story is WAY more interesting if you read it the right way around.

via TweetDeck

@dahowlett The @VentureBeat arsehats have got it backwards, Dennis. ACCC ruled that Cabcharge’s planned app was anti-competitive, not Uber.

via TweetDeck in reply to dahowlett

Um @VentureBeat, read the story. Your headline is exactly wrong. ACCC decision a blow to taxi incumbents, not Uber. twitter.com/VentureBeat/st…
