@voltagex Kook. Is is better or worse than Bronwyn Bishop and Clive Palmer? Cory Bernardi and a tired old labrador?

@developerjack Not quite as satisfying as I’d hoped, but adequate.

@ChiefDisrupter @NicoleWill100 @annie_parker These are the stock narratives, for sure. I just get fussy about comfy narratives vs research.

@NicoleWill100 @annie_parker @ChiefDisrupter Sure. The median small business is a tradie with a part-time admin support or an offsider.

@NicoleWill100 @annie_parker @ChiefDisrupter And not scaling to per-capita? That an Analysis 101 fail.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicoleWill100

@NicoleWill100 @annie_parker @ChiefDisrupter This is the hand-waving. Raw data, yes, but the causation is just being asserted. No evidence.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicoleWill100

@NicoleWill100 @annie_parker @ChiefDisrupter I wouldn’t got as far as “create own jobs”. Every tradie is a contractor now. They need an ABN.

Why the focus on “startups”? It’s a single-source yarn citing stats handed out by a startup that provides services to startups.
