@davispg @irisherself This is all well and good, but there’s nowhere to get wine at this hour.

@kjmci The annotation “2.7x” seems to hint at that, yes.

@NicholasFryer Alternatively, I’m happy to teach them to shout obscenities at monks, thus endearing your family to everyone.

@NicholasFryer You should be able to get a good price for them.

@teknetia I’m good for the current one, the Salisbury in Stanmore on Sat 19 Dec. But a fine suggestion.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to teknetia

@NicholasFryer I’d be more than happy to make some suggestions based on my comprehensive total of two weeks in the city.

And the @774melbourne radio spot is done. I think I have a good recording this time, so if I do, I’ll post it by early tomorrow morning.

@GenKnoxx And on that we’re on the same page. More likely to drown in our own bathtubs etc.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to GenKnoxx

@GenKnoxx My job here, I should say, is to explain the viewpoint fairly, even if I don’t agree. So I think I’m getting there.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to GenKnoxx

@GenKnoxx I wonder, though, whether making such a big deal of the terrorists isn’t just reinforcing that idea, despite good intentions.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to GenKnoxx

@GenKnoxx Gotcha. I’ll use that comment on the radio tonight.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to GenKnoxx

@GenKnoxx So, if I may put it crudely, team bonding by mocking the enemy? Like drawing Hitler in drag? Trying to understand the motive here.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to GenKnoxx

@GenKnoxx Ludicrous it may be, but it’s a real movement with real weaponry and real territory. I don’t think they care about mockery.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to GenKnoxx

@GenKnoxx I get that propaganda can be important, but I personally have difficulty seeing how unfocused mockery can work.

@DDsD @DavidRDHeath No, it’s just a forum recorded in some public house or other.

@nigel_castle The Oxford is also a fine suggestion, so I’ll pop through both before heading to North Sydney.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to nigel_castle

@nigel_castle @SydneyTom_ just suggested the Salisbury too, so I’m heading over that way now.

@dobes @drearyclocks You should be right. It’s the Year of the Daddy.

Nothing wrong with taking care of the economy. It’s part of a PM’s job. But only part. And startups are a tiny weeny part o’that.

via TweetDeck

Turnbull’s vision is to look at Startupland’s multi-billion (over-)valuations and think “How can we get us some of that?”

via TweetDeck

The Commission for the Future had a brief to look well ahead and tackle the whole spectrum of national issues strategically.

via TweetDeck

Compare Turnbull’s “Innovation” push to Australia’s Commission for the Future of 1985..trove.nla.gov.au/people/579801?…Pom

via TweetDeck

Given that plenty of sane people are saying “It’s a bubble! It’s a bubble!” is this the right time for AU to board the bandwagon?

via TweetDeck

“Innovation” defined as one-in-a-million mega-success in money, not as in, say, folding a plastic tube differently to save lives.

via TweetDeck

I would be more than happy to be proven wrong on this. I wonder how “success” was defined. twitter.com/juhasaarinen/s…

via TweetDeck

… but nothing about transitioning the rest of the economy and society. It’s the trickle-down myth writ largeom

via TweetDeck

Note how there’s lots about how cool it’ll be for those folk, and funding research and creating cubicle-fodder for them…

via TweetDeck

So it’s pandering to the techno-uptopians of Startupland and their gape-jawed get-rich-quick investors, with #1 as camouflage.

via TweetDeck

3. Tax and regulatory reforms that benefit a narrowly-defined goldfish bowl of innovation = high-risk fast-growth startups.

via TweetDeck

2. Random small-ticket items that sound cool but that will amount to little, e.g. Silicon Valley / Tel Aviv landing pads.

via TweetDeck

1. Confirmation or restoration (sometimes only partly) of funding that was already there, e.g. SKA, CSIRO.

Having slept on Turnbull’s Nimbling overnight, I think the 29 ideas fall into three broad categories.
