Priess delivered the President’s Daily Brief during the Bill Clinton and George W Bush administrations, so you know, he has a clue.

Priess wrote “The President’s Book of Secrets: The Untold Story of Intelligence Briefings to America’s Presidents from Kennedy to Obama”

@Mkts2day @ivovic @CybrarianPete What leads you to think that? Run me through it.

@ivovic Cheers! :) I’m in Melbourne at least twice before the end of the year, so I think a drink is in order.

At the 2016 Australian census, the population of the Northern Territory was somewhere between 23,268 and 1,543,897.

“The population of the Northern Territory at the 2011 Australian census was 211,945,” so this is a lovely microcosm. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_…

@Mkts2day @ivovic @CybrarianPete Sorry, what language are you speaking? (And I say this after several* vodkas.)

Why do you bother? The Northern Territory is pretty much bullshit anyway.

@chrisriddell @DinushiDias @ellykeating Indeed. Or at least find a better venue for better disagreement. Perhaps one with a bar.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisriddell

@chrisriddell @DinushiDias @ellykeating Calling it “service” (as in customer service) or a “customer experience”, it’s the same thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisriddell

@chrisriddell @DinushiDias @ellykeating That’s exactly the same statement wrapped up in the current buzzwords.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisriddell

@chrisriddell @DinushiDias @ellykeating But the taxi companies didn’t, tho, did they. They failed to focus on what their customers wanted.

@riskybusiness @MikaStahlberg Oh for sure. But the point is that it’s not a suddenly a new thing.

@sydwinecentre @jdub I’m originally from Adelaide and my mother’s side of the family are all Barossadeutsch wine folks.

@sydwinecentre @jdub Ah, thank you. Sounds like a (sort of) re-run of what happened with the Roseworthy graduates in the… 1970s? 1980s?

@riskybusiness @semibogan @4corners Zactly. I spoke to a researcher 3 or 4 months back. They were good questions for a general audience.

via TweetDeck in reply to riskybusiness

@semibogan @riskybusiness @4corners Yeah, but I also imagine that some folks at DC might be a bit precious and get pissed off rather easily.
