@R_Chirgwin @joshgnosis Clearly a range of merchandise is required.

@iain_chalmers @joshgnosis One might, yes. Although I have a private theory. Enough rope, etc.

@joshgnosis The other thing worth a poke is the consultation with IT experts. Surely this is routine forensics.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis Yeah, the AAT decision is a handy precedent. Assuming such case law carries across.

@petedavo_au @joshgnosis @Radio_Tactics Good point. I was just guesstimating based on USB3 transfer speeds.

@gpdawson Ah that’s a point. Thanks. Doesn’t change my puzzlement, of course.

via TweetDeck in reply to gpdawson

@vealmince Exactly. Isn’t Sodoku just the same mechanical iterative solution each time? Maybe steer these folks to Mechanical Turk. ;)

@vealmince I know I sound like I’m making a utilitarian argument. Maybe I am. But I simply don’t understand the point or the appeal.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

@vealmince Yeah, but I just don’t get why you wouldn’t pick an activity that also results in something. Anything. Even some intangible.

@vealmince I see people doing Sodoku on the train and wonder what the actual point is.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

@vealmince Yeah, I suppose I am saying that, but I’d probably say “bullshit” rather than “authentic”. Perhaps that’s the same thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

@dobes Well, I wasn’t available.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

Sodoku is to mathematics as Adult Colouring Books are to art. Discuss.

@gpdawson Hah! I prefer a minimalist approach. Muted tones for everything except the data itself. Edward Tufte was an influence.

@pblakez You really need to start taking responsibility for your own actions.

“Brands” and those who talk about them.
