@traceyb65 @blackdoginst Most of it will need a referral from your GP or current psych, but yes, do check it out.

via TweetDeck in reply to traceyb65

@Virtualkat101 Thanks. Stories like this need to be more visible, and I needed to tell my various audiences anyway. I combined it all.

via TweetDeck in reply to Virtualkat101

@traceyb65 I knew @blackdoginst’s work from a tour a couple years ago. Impressed with what I saw then, impressed with what’s done so far.

via TweetDeck in reply to traceyb65

@traceyb65 It could all fall apart still. But probably not, given I have @blackdoginst support.

via TweetDeck in reply to traceyb65

@traceyb65 Yeah, pretty much. Or in my case, that I’ve just booked swimming lessons and bought some floaties.

via TweetDeck in reply to traceyb65

@traceyb65 Thanks. The feeling right now is one of having solved a puzzle, but we’ll see how it goes.

Mind you, it’s Melbourne. I’ll probably be wearing black. You’ll probably be wearing black. We’ll be coordinated.

3. That second post also has details of what I’m doing in Melbourne next week, should you wish to coordinate in some way.

Wow, there’s a lot of mai pen rai happening on this sign. But not so much arithmetic. twitter.com/joeyblower/sta…

via TweetDeck

I am so glad to have ignored the news for most of this week.

via TweetDeck

@smHttr @petercoffee Maybe it’s every icon on the internet.

via TweetDeck in reply to smHttr

@scott_thewspot Yeah, I figured it was the quickest way to shut you up. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

Now that’s quite some icon, @fitbit. Shall we speculate, @petercoffee? twitter.com/petercoffee/st…

via TweetDeck

@scott_thewspot No, their whole architecture and UX just seems shoddy.

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot The question is, which of these Scott Williams are you?

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot I hadn’t logged into LinkedIn for months, until today.

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

@davispg It certainly could be for some. For me, though, it was a “Yeah, that makes sense”. Plus a realisation to even out the pace a bit.

via TweetDeck in reply to davispg

@ChrissieM Yeah have a yarn with your GP, ‘cos you may quality for some @blackdoginst science!

via TweetDeck in reply to ChrissieM

@davispg That’s what I’ve been doing for the past couple of days. :) It’s a slow soak anyway, really. Just changing conditions.

via TweetDeck in reply to davispg

If you’re wanting to catch up with me in Melbourne next week, this blog post also has those details. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

I should probably re-plug my two blog posts from earlier today. Yeah, I’ll do that now.

via TweetDeck

@deoxxa I’ll make sure to let you know where we’re eating and drinking though!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deoxxa

@deoxxa Thanks for your kind accommodation offer, but I found that by splitting the nights I could get cheap deals in and near the CBD.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deoxxa

@virtualpete @LinkedIn Oddly enough, I haven’t had a single recruiter try to contact me. Perhaps because I’m unemployable.

via TweetDeck in reply to virtualpete

And this is precisely why @twitter folk keep coming up with ideas that regular and heavy users find insane. twitter.com/SIGKILL/status…

via TweetDeck

@kd__ I would never, ever use the phrase “miracle cure”. I used “hot” to mean “leading edge research”, that’s all.

via TweetDeck in reply to kd__

@kd__ Seen what? (Sorry, your tweet doesn’t seem to link to anything.)

via TweetDeck in reply to kd__

Four grams of what?

@gregmurray3 Thanks, Greg. I’ll end up being the best-imformed patient in the country at this rate!

via TweetDeck in reply to gregmurray3

Does pitching to editors work at 1645 AEDT Sat? Anyone interested in a yarn on hot new Australian treatments for bipolar spectrum disorders?

via TweetDeck

@gregmurray3 @jillethelmurray @blackdoginst … so if I can make it into something more than just my selfish interest, we must have coffee.

via TweetDeck in reply to gregmurray3

@gregmurray3 @jillethelmurray Cool. I was diagnosed by @blackdoginst on Wed, so it’s a new world. I’ve got several Melbourne trips soon…

via TweetDeck in reply to gregmurray3

@RealNickHodge @kcarruthers You KNOW I’m not going to take this shit seriously, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

@jodiem Ah, can’t help you then. I haven’t used Windows since the one with a V in it.

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

@reselsnark @elronxenu No, not anonymised. My question was rhetorical. It’s an asset to sell.

via TweetDeck in reply to reselsnark

So when @LinkedIn goes belly up, what happens to the data?

via TweetDeck

@scott_thewspot Well I can’t get to it! @LinkedIn must have some really fucked-up caching mechanisms.

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m not sure. Probably. Who else was there? Alexander Downer.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I actually had a great conversation with her and Tom Switzer, and also Paul Kelly.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @iain_chalmers @juhasaarinen I ate the Freedom Frogs, and Judith Sloan touched me.

@Ileshem @LinkedIn Cheers, Itai. If I had anything remotely like money, I’d be concerned. ;)

@anusha_srini @LinkedIn It’s a negative number. The sales pitch is IN the connection request.

via TweetDeck in reply to anusha_srini

By all means endorse me for “self-loathing”, yes. Also, “Lizard People”. twitter.com/iain_chalmers/…

via TweetDeck

@incorrect This is true, but I am not my friend.

via TweetDeck in reply to incorrect

@juhasaarinen No, I just want to tell people I’m in Melbourne next week and now I hate myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

@matt_levinson @kcarruthers I told @petercoffee how much I loathed @LinkedIn. “But they’ve got all the data,” he said. Ugly’s got the honey.

via TweetDeck in reply to matt_levinson

AND HOW MANY TIMES DO I NEED TO CLICK ON THE CONNECT BUTTON FOR DOMINIC POLITO BEFORE YOIU ACTUALLY GODDAM DO IT, @LinkedIn?

via TweetDeck

IF THERE ARE 325 PENDING INVITATIONS WHY DON’T YOU SHOW THEM TO ME, @LinkedIn?

via TweetDeck

FFS, @LinkedIn, do you have to CONSTANTLY ask so many goddam questions? Do you need a Xanax or two?

via TweetDeck

I have logged into LinkedIn and am almost immediately regretting it.

@ozdj Mate, it’s just boiling water in, and your addictive alkaloid stimulants are ready to go!

@DavidParis @SnarkyPlatypus You are most kind, David, no matter what they say.

@ashabeeeee @SnarkyPlatypus Look, I don’t know… apparently so…. but i@VICEVICE so who can say?

via TweetDeck in reply to ashabeeeee

@jillethelmurray Wow. Thanks. I’ve already for @blackdoginst in my corner, so would @gregmurray3 be overkill? ;) Maybe a podcast later up.

via TweetDeck in reply to jillethelmurray

@DavidParis @SnarkyPlatypus Only inasmuch as life is an elaborate troll. No, genuine enquiry.

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidParis

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad We’ll just get @DavidParis to do some bloody work for a change.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@DavidParis I should ask you. @SnarkyPlatypus is after some demographics of The Greens’ members and/or voters. You got anything handy?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad Oh, and “members” and “voters” are two different things. Very different, I suspect.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad The polling outfits can work backwards from a general poll to get roughly the same thing, tho not as accurately.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad You’d be after The Greens’ internal analysis, unless they’ve published something.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@hicksfilosopher @bunjaree This is not summer as we know it. Summer is broken.

@cpltalk @deltrimental Thanks, Chris. It’s stuff that needs to be said more often, I reckon. And I do love a blurry dog shot. ;)

Sat plan, draft: Blog post (done); bookkeeping (in progress); budget for Melbourne; book accommodation etc; sloth; kangaroo; more sloth.

via TweetDeck

@ResignInShame Shall do. I think I’m pretty stocked up on victuals until I head to Melbourne on Wednesday.

via TweetDeck in reply to ResignInShame

@ResignInShame Ta for the offer, but I’ll be lazing about the house today, pretending to do some chores. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to ResignInShame

@erstkate Indeed. Anyway, having written that as an explainer, I’m into the next thing now. I’m very comfy with where I am. :) Thanks!

via TweetDeck in reply to erstkate

@ApostrophePong I remember when @KeithConlon and I were finding uses of the SA word “treadlie” (bicycle) to get it into @MacqDictionary.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Although dictionaries of slang let stuff in quicker, because that’s how slang works.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong A word doesn’t get into the big dictionaries until there’s 3 independent “normal” uses in a mainstream publication.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@deltrimental Thanks. I’m making it public ‘cos I’d intended to do some awareness work with Black Dog anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to deltrimental

@ApostrophePong Thing is, words tend to come from informal uses in speech, email, blogs etc before, say, news outlet uses it. So it’s hard.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Same as before: The oldest one you have is the oldest, until you find an older one. :)

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong I’ll see if I can get the actual citation from 2002 from Merriam-Webster. I think I know someone there.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong No, makes it easier. I did linguistics, remember, and one of my tutors was a lexicographer for Oxford.

@dfg77 @leoniedoyle They also do training for GPs so cases can be better diagnosed by them rather than the senior clinicians at Black Dog.

via TweetDeck in reply to dfg77

@dfg77 @leoniedoyle Here’s how the Depression Clinic works, which is where I started. blackdoginstitute.org.au/healthprofessi…

via TweetDeck in reply to dfg77

@dfg77 @leoniedoyle It has to a case that hasn’t responded to other treatments, forget the exact criteria though.

via TweetDeck in reply to dfg77

@dfg77 @leoniedoyle GP referral was 23/11, appointment was orig 17/2, but there was a cancellation. But not all referrals are accepted.

via TweetDeck in reply to dfg77

@Darcy1968 That’s a brilliant shot, Darcy, @ApostrophePong would love it too.

via TweetDeck in reply to Darcy1968

@leoniedoyle @dfg77 Thanks. Not just a plan, but a plan by one of the most clueful places on the planet for this stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to leoniedoyle

@leoniedoyle Like many people, you’re confusing Beyond Blue Foundation (awareness) with Black Dog Institute (medical research and clinics).

via TweetDeck in reply to leoniedoyle

@19bk69 Indeed. I was just pleased that I was accepted into their clinic, because I knew their work. Had a tour of the place a while back.

via TweetDeck in reply to 19bk69

@19bk69 Cheers. I don’t know what’s IN that plan yet, of course, but I’ll soon find out.
