@drspacejunk @CosmicRami Oh no, the Victorian era was much better organised than this.

@CosmicRami @drspacejunk I don’t have plans to be in Sydney at this stage, but it’s possible this may change. I await Certain Facts.

@NicholasFryer Oh there’s no panic. The wort that will happen is that I’ll just open the microphone and riff off people’s tweets.

@expectproblems I did so very like the sound that came through in that gameplay video too.

@NewtonMark Thanks. The next one will be a long-form interview, and the pattern after that will depend on revenue, energy, and ideas.

@Gin_ev_ra Thanks. I’ve got a busy couple of days ahead, but it’s all* good.

@techuntangler @troyhunt Scroll back for my comments hours ago. As for “validity”, well, they gave out the prize money.

@jpwarren No, no, just use your own audio mix and then go straight to Icecast2. I reckon. I dunno. I haven’t really tried yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@jpwarren Exactly. Tho I’ll just pipe the output of my mix into the input of their app (rather than the the mic input), Icecast2 from there.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

This explains pretty much everything. twitter.com/GreenJ/status/…

via TweetDeck

@jpwarren Well, there’s some sort of chat function that I haven’t looked t yet. But I figure a Twitter hashtag also does the job.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@jpwarren To “dial in”, as in to participate in talkback, their desktop app has Skype integration… or I can build my own in Audio Hijack.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@jpwarren To “tune in”, as in to listen, no. You can also just listen on the web at their site, or at mine once I stick a widget on it.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@jpwarren Yes, it seems quite well structured, but we’ll see when I start using it in anger as it were.

@call_me_tomasso @mpesce Over the years I’ve learned that a loud disgruntled businessperson isn’t usually a sign of reliable data.

via TweetDeck in reply to call_me_tomasso

@call_me_tomasso @mpesce Mind you, I’d want to see their methodology. Bots register page hits without ad clicks. PPC rates have declined.

via TweetDeck

@call_me_tomasso @mpesce The usual figures tossed around are 10% to 20% of users use blockers. A tech news site at 50% doesn’t seem insane.

@franksting @purserj It’s is quite possible that 9pm tomorrow will be a significant time.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting @purserj That’s right. Indeed, the 24/7 streaming of existing broadcasters is something they do for USD120 a month.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting @purserj There’s broadcaster apps for iOS, Android, OS X, Windows… press a button to go live, with music and FX in the cloud.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting @purserj No. It’s about live streaming, and the archiving is a side issue.

Hmmm. A “streaming tool” sounds like something that should cause a chap to visit his doctor.

@purserj They now also have a desktop app, though I’ll be using other tools to mix audio and insert it into their streaming tool.

Good one, PTV. Sure, you’ve got that boilerplate on a website, but the Myki registration process is proof positive that you don’t even try.
