@michaelneale @jonoabroad I’m just trying to see what Barangaroo’s status is, but “ranger” suggests Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority.

@michaelneale @jonoabroad On private property, people can make whatever rules they like. On public land, no. But there’s a grey zone.

Got in first. Told the security guy he had 30 seconds to stop interfering and back off or I was calling the police. He was flummoxed. (2/2)

Hey @ABCNews24, you should probably update your @VirginAustralia stock footage to the current branding. Rows of red aircraft have gone.

@jonoabroad @michaelneale @skwashd There seems to have been some sort of misunderstanding.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

I was just wondering who this arsehat was on TV, some sort of spruiker for coal. But then I realised it was the environment minister.

via TweetDeck

@michaelneale @skwashd @jonoabroad I’m currently in the front bar, should that fact matter to anyone.

@michaelneale @jonoabroad Looks interesting. Well, I’ll stroll through the village for a bit before heading to the pub. I’m craving steak.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to michaelneale

@macgibbon @jturner_ibrs Oh touché! :) James and I spoke about this last night. You both have excellent points, so we shall talk further.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to macgibbon

Actually, I don’t like being proved wrong, but @macgibbon and @jturner_ibrs are smarter than me, so what can you do?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@macgibbon Well @jturner_ibrs had a go at me too yesterday, so it looks like I should do a follow-up, right? I like being proved wrong.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to macgibbon

@michaelneale @jonoabroad Well there you go. Will you be taking a lunch break?

I’ve decided to go to Mt Victoria for lunch, mostly on the grounds that the Imperial Hotel looks interesting.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@jpwarren Thanks. The ABC and I are feeling quite good about it, and I’ve been asked to pitch further ideas in the new year.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@michaelneale Yes. I’ll pop down to Parramatta Sunday or Monday to arrange it.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale This is true. Actually, the Commercial Hotel in Parramatta has some great spaces, so that might be an option too.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale Actually, I’ll do that on Monday, I think. I’d have to rush to get the next train and get there by lunchtime.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale Hmmm… Maybe I should pop down to Parramatta today and scout some locations, ‘cos it’s the idea area.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale Anywhere in the Sydney basin that’s near rail transport.

I should say, “had been sending”, because @AstroSamantha returned to Earth a few months ago.

@michaelneale I know that pub. That’s be packed solid on the last Saturday arvo before Christmas, I suspect. Whereas Penrith was empty.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@stufromoz That can be worked around, with a quiet room or whatever.

via TweetDeck in reply to stufromoz

@Nicholas_James Hmmm. That might pack it out a bit too much. Last time we had around 20 people in the audience.

I’m also looking for a pub in Sydney to record a Public House Forum on the afternoon of Sat 19 Dec. Shady beer garden or balcony ideas?

via TweetDeck

I should go for lunch somewhere different, up here in the upper Blue Mountains. Anything good up Blackheath or Mt Victoria way?

@veritychambers Privacy Act is what we have for this, I think. But most apps are US-based, so COPPA applies. @MsLods, am I right here?

@veritychambers There’s no way that an 8yo kid can make informed choices about the privacy issues. Which is of course why the law is there.

via TweetDeck in reply to veritychambers

@veritychambers Wow, that is seriously bad advice. And yes, unless you’re 13+, laws like US COPPA Act and others require parental consent.

via TweetDeck in reply to veritychambers

@veritychambers @troyhunt I know NSW Education has a good team, but small. And kinda bring their own phones and tablets, and their own apps.

via TweetDeck in reply to veritychambers

@veritychambers @troyhunt Exactly, yes. There’s always a big database somewhere. How was it built? Maintained? Protected? Who can access it?

via TweetDeck in reply to veritychambers

@MsLods @RNFutureTense Thanks. I’m quite happy with the way it came together. Sort of a Cyber 101 explainer.

via TweetDeck in reply to MsLods

@veritychambers I’d defer to @troyhunt on this, but it’s more about the secure of the back-end servers and code than the front-end app.
