GordyPls Lots of people in my feed bewildered that a climate march didn’t get any press. Need to talk to your PR firm. You hired one right?

@HumphreyPL I’ll make contact during the week. I’m brain-dead right now. But I plan to do some features on fintech in the near future.

via TweetDeck in reply to HumphreyPL

@HumphreyPL Good to hear. I was reacting with horror to the idea of a “social credit score” out of context. We should talk some time.

@Telstra I believe one neighbour is also on this cable, though @R_Chirgwin is the account-holder and can confirm.

via TweetDeck in reply to Telstra

@Telstra It’s stayed working through some huge rainstorms and winds, with just minor dropouts, so it’s more an amusement than a problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to Telstra

@Telstra Yep. As each reel of copper was added, the splice was packed with grease into one of those protector caps and taped up a tree.

via TweetDeck in reply to Telstra

@PlaneTalking @bunjaree I’ll go for the third option, chewed into destruction by show-off cockatoos.

via TweetDeck in reply to PlaneTalking

@Telstra Until they do that, and you guys are dealing with council, it’s 200m of copper unspooled through the scrub.

via TweetDeck in reply to Telstra

@Telstra Thanks for picking up on the tweet, though. I understand the delay is a neighbour giving permission to dig a microtrench.

via TweetDeck in reply to Telstra

@Telstra Oh no, Ern, that’s how your guys built it to repair a lightning strike in January 2014. No new fault to report. It works.

@SydneyTom_ We’re about 1.5m from the local exchange, one of those little automated huts. Better here than @R_Chirgwin’s Lilyfield home.

@SydneyTom_ The backhaul dies when kids get home from school, or during the Sat-Sun afternoon traffic jams on the Great Western Highway.

via TweetDeck in reply to SydneyTom_

@R_Chirgwin @michaelneale Makes sense. Even back in the 1980s RAAF P-3C Orion carried two tactical officers who worked 20 min on 20 min off.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@michaelneale @R_ChirgwinThat cascade of errors is typical of wartime fuckups. Even with humans in the loop, it’s hard to recover.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@SydneyTom_ Between 6 and 8Mbps down, about 650kbps up, depending. Backhaul capacity seems to be a problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to SydneyTom_

@michaelneale @R_Chirgwin Indeed. Modern C4I systems, “networked warfare” and the like have now made phenomenal changes.

@admmo Yeah, journalism moves fast, even on the analysis side. Even turning it around overnight is a luxury most times.

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@admmo Indeed. Though even the first problem is a consistent taxonomy for such things. I gather this is on ACSC’s agenda though.

@admmo You’re preaching to the choir here, Sir! :) I drop that very point from time to time.

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@admmo It’s interesting that Maj-Gen Day and others I’ve spoken to would like to see more openness, but it’s a hard culture to change.

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@admmo Well indeed. I didn’t explore that point because that’s not the theme of that column.

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@deoxxa @michaelneale I’m with Conrad on this. I’d like to think there’ll be a pushback, but even most tech journos are wow-cool boosters.

via TweetDeck in reply to deoxxa

@admmo That theory was floated by Andrew Fowler in a BBC program I was on in 2013, though I’ve heard it elsewhere. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@admmo The result is even less transparency, but also that we seem to have avoided leaks of secrets and the revelation of scandals.

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@admmo As a junior partner to imperial masters (UK and then US), we’re afraid of leaking their info and displeasing them, so try harder.

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@admmo In part, this is a combination of tradition and legislative framework, but another theory floats around…

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@admmo AU’s military and intel folks do have a reputation for secrecy, certainly more than the US, where they’re quite approachable.

via TweetDeck in reply to admmo

@admmo Sure, though this will be a a gross over-simplification of what I’d happily say at greater length…
