@BruceHore @crikey_news Oops I said I wasn’t going to respond.

via TweetDeck in reply to BruceHore

@BruceHore @crikey_news Yep, that’s another complaint I’ve seen.

via TweetDeck in reply to BruceHore

I’ll keep watching (but not responding to) your tweet until I fall asleep, have nightmares, then tomorrow write for @crikey_news.

via TweetDeck

This is exactly what should’ve have done to rectify things. twitter.com/iain_chalmers/…

So @4corners “Cyber War” is not geoblocked. Have at it, world. (Thanks, @j0hnburns @jeffsonstein)

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The full @4corners episode “Cyber War’ is now up at abc.net.au/4corners/stori… Can someone outside AU tell me if it’s geoblocked?

via TweetDeck

@ChrisGatford Nothing. Heckled by INFOSEC is inevitable because they’re precious little petals.

via TweetDeck in reply to ChrisGatford

@ChrisGatford The feeling I’m getting it that it tried to do too much in one episode. Crime and espionage and sabotage (Stuxnet) and war.

via TweetDeck in reply to ChrisGatford

@KompleatKnut Well, YOU won’t learn anything new. But it’s worth knowing what Orrinerry Austrayins get told.

via TweetDeck in reply to KompleatKnut

@snare @TheColonial @darrenpauli Why the fuck else do you think I tweet so much?

via TweetDeck in reply to snare

@TheColonial @darrenpauli @snare Exactly. If we can’t keep ourselves amused, then what even is the point.

via TweetDeck in reply to TheColonial

@protiotype @4corners Exactly. For a topic that affects everyone, the media has done a phenomenally poor job of bringing the public along.

via TweetDeck in reply to protiotype

And if I’m doing than, then I might as well re-plug this @Lateline episode from late 2015. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I mention that ‘cos our focus was different, yet there’s some good comments on the future of it all. @RNFutureTense

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Late 2015 I did “Bug bounties and pentesting: the Wild West of online security”, an @RNFutureTense doco. abc.net.au/radionational/…

via TweetDeck

@unixbigot If only. But according to the script for “The Code” series 2 I have here, [SPOILERS REDACTED.]

via TweetDeck in reply to unixbigot

@petedavo_au @crikey_news I think it’s worth watching ‘cos this is the stuff that shapes the views of orrinerry Austrayans.

via TweetDeck in reply to petedavo_au

jturner_ibrs I’m left with a big resounding “So what?”
What do I do with this info?
What are you trying to tell me?

Well, @4corners, I have complicated feels about all that. I have no idea what I’ll write once I’ve slept on it.

via TweetDeck

@smidgey I KNOW THAT WAS A REALLY GOOD COMMENT WASN’T IT AND PERHAPS IT WAS ONE OF MY BEST.

via TweetDeck in reply to smidgey

CyberTaters RT @stilgherrian: If you missed it, that @4corners episode “Potato War” and a transcript will appear soon at abc.net.au/4corners/stori… and on…

via itsapotato (retweeted on 9:33 PM, Aug 29th, 2016 via TweetDeck)

I’m taking note of all my replies about ‘cos I’m writing a review / reflections yarn for @crikey_news tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

Because I haven’t had enough to drink. Der. twitter.com/snare/status/7…

via TweetDeck

@virtualpete If only. (I’m biased. I was a script consultant for “The Code” series 2.)

via TweetDeck in reply to virtualpete

@twiddlekins Fair point. Traditionally it’s been an older audiences that’s curious about the world but not specialist.

via TweetDeck in reply to twiddlekins

I very agree with this. seems to want to do everything in one program. Very little of it was “Cyber War”. twitter.com/swearyanthony/…

via TweetDeck

@smidgey Yep. I’ll agree with that one.

via TweetDeck in reply to smidgey

@iain_chalmers His Facebook post said 0day brokering was all they wanted to talk about. Patently untrue.

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

If you missed it, that @4corners episode “Cyber War” and a transcript will appear soon at abc.net.au/4corners/stori… and on @abciview.

via TweetDeck

Remember, this is an audience for whom all of this was brand new, and the only reference they have is mainstream news and culture.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

So, kiddies, infosec / sysadmins weren’t the target audience for . Tell me what was truly wrong for the folks at home.

via TweetDeck

That’s a person gripe, obviously. As a TV producer, I’d have made the same decision as because it’s far better television.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

It’s a bit disappointing that ’ focus in Las Vegas was the competitions on the sidelines and not the presentation streams. Oh well.

via TweetDeck

So KM’s big whinge was about 20 seconds of an interview that did, despite his post, cover quite a few other things.

via TweetDeck

Most criticisms of I’ve seen from the tech-savvy so far are whinges about details the target audience doesn’t care about.

@voltagex Here we go. I’ve interviewed him. He knows his stuff. He’s a bit of a hawk. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

He was also chief researcher for McAfee, and has close links to former NSA director Gen Keith Alexander. twitter.com/jturner_ibrs/s…

Well, after the news headlines.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@nphair Hmmm. Arrested in 1995, with four and a half years pre-trial and eight months post sentencing. Strange case, that.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@nphair Yep, released in 2000, says Wikipedia. He’s currently doing a celebrity hacking tour. mitnicklive.com

via TweetDeck in reply to nphair

@nphair The 30-second promo is a bit cybergeddon though, and journos to tend to take the bait of the scary stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to nphair

@nphair Hard to say. A lot of people are RTing Kevin M’s whinge, but I’m not sure how much credence to give that.

via TweetDeck in reply to nphair

Perhaps, but it’s still nowhere near as bad as people retweeting everything vaguely complimentary said about them. twitter.com/GordyPls/statu…

@R_Chirgwin This strikes me as odd. They seemed fine to me, and I’m too much of a wimp to brutalise taps.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@ClintonDucas @FreoPope How inefficient. You just go to hackertyper.net and bash on the keyboard.

via TweetDeck in reply to ClintonDucas

@PaulCunningham @RealNickHodge Cool. It has lovely plot twists. Won heap of awards. (My bias is I was a script consultant for series 2.)

via TweetDeck in reply to PaulCunningham

@FreoPope @ClintonDucas Well here’s the program’s promo image. “wdgdv”, I say! pic.twitter.com/BkzgdJQXxp

via TweetDeck in reply to FreoPope

@ClintonDucas Maybe we should all down a shot every time we see a hakkerihuppari.

@NicholasFryer Sometimes you just have to be a radical.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

Well I suppose you could do this too. @SteveMolk seems to take an interest in TV. twitter.com/SteveMolk/stat…

via TweetDeck

@NicholasFryer You should definitely watch BoJack Horseman. Dunno about the other one.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

I recommend “The Toyota Pickup Truck Is the War Chariot of the Third World” at @warisboring warisboring.com/the-toyota-pic… @sylmobile @R_Chirgwin

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

“The Code” series 1 is also on Netflix, and maybe some other streaming services, but you can look that up for yourself.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Rather not watch Self-Harm Hour tonight? Try “The Code” series 1 on @abciview before series 2 starts Thu. tv.press.abc.net.au/the-code-serie…

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Well there’s certainly big ant nests down that end, and the rest of the environment is perfect.

@jagungal1 There’s just no respect these days.

Little-known fact: Echidnas have diesel engines. youtube.com/watch?v=3l6dl8…

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Oh that sleeping bag was thoroughly echidna’d.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

How did you even… I mean, what did… actually no don’t tell twitter.com/jagungal1/stat…ASSw

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I have mixed feelings about echidnas.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I was impressed with how quickly the echidna did its work. I was not impressed with having to make do with a couple blankets for three days.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Once when hiking on Kangaroo Island, I was dismayed to find an echidna in my sleeping bag. Frightened, it “burrowed” and shredded the bag.

Not that I’ve actually done anything yet today.

I’ll take it as read that someone has already done something incredibly stupid today.
