  • .@FakePaulKeating yeah, see what you think of the actual policy, esp "public comment" section halfway down this page. http://t.co/aneyG1gd #
  • .@NickHodgeMSFT it's my personal experience too, but many manage it through multiple accounts and the like. I think it's doable. #
  • .@FakePaulKeating interesting. Link? @grogsgamut is a pretty obvious precedent that challenges that πŸ™‚ #
  • Yes RT @Kiwiseabreeze: @piawaugh I think its really important to think/talk about where that balance should lie…. #futureofsecrecy #
  • Here privacy/security only exceptions RT @bxmx: I think many tend to overuse closed. I tend to ask why shouldn't something be shared 1st…. #
  • .@purserj indeed, too much ideology means we don't get to practical implementation & don't get ahead. Opengov is a continuum, not binary. #
  • .@bxmx exactly, that is why binary approach to dialogue is so unhelpful. We need to get beyond open vs closed to more informed discussion. #
  • .@FakePaulKeating why? I thought it's quite good & big step forward. Explicitly says ppl in APS are citizens too. How would you improve it? #
  • Public sector information as a public resource (& publicly available) is huge change in gov policy & culture. Still new tho #futureofsecrecy #
  • I find it odd some ppl think no one in gov should have private conversations. More openness needed, esp policy devel, but there's a balance. #
  • Not rly, just 1 event πŸ˜› MT @paulwallbank: #futureofsecrecy is private under Chatham House rules tells all we need to know re #gov20 future #
  • Sorry, yes another speaker at #futureofsecrecy RT @MartyAtDell: @piawaugh Me 2!!! #
  • .@BernardKeane I met a "futurist" who heard my background & said "you should be a futurist, we need more chicks". #totallyvaluedformybrain #
  • Point being made at #futureofsecrecy that trade negotiation in secret doesn't work. "Is counterproductive for just about everyone". #
  • The Lowy #futureofsecrecy blog with some interesting contributions from gov (inc defense), journalists & other analysts http://t.co/SRQnKbDu #
  • #futureofsecrecy forum is under Chatham House rule, so I won't quote people, but rather will share my thoughts. #compromise #
  • Lowy Institute #futureofsecrecy forum kicking off. Speakers inc @nicholasgruen, @turnbullmalcolm, OAIC John MacMillan & Maurie MacNarn. #
  • Going to a Lowy Institute forum on gov and secrecy. Should be interesting. Will live tweet. http://t.co/HJlMRkFL #
  • Would anyone else our there be interested in a #FuCamp a barcamp for martial arts? πŸ™‚ #
  • .@craigthomler @trib Strawmen are best burned in my opinion πŸ˜‰ Will check it out. Have a meeting now but the discussion is great to have! πŸ™‚ #
  • .@trib Also, not acting is subject to how much one group can do. We need whole of APS moving. Grassroots devel will help lift everything up #
  • Yes, THIS RT @jzb: watching morning TV is like reading Slashdot comments. I don't recommend either. #
  • .@trib I understand frustration, part. as from outside things aren't clear, which needs fixing. I have a good feeling things will improve πŸ˜‰ #
  • .@trib Sometimes I think you just like to be indignant. I've joined #gov2au discussion. We need to discuss problems, not jump to solutions #
  • Hah! Prolly RT @purserj: @piawaugh @latikambourke let me guess, "Next: How to keep your man happy in bed while keeping the house OCD clean"? #
  • .@trib heh, look forward to also reading your ideas to move forward, so to speak. There's already too much unconstructive ranty πŸ˜‰ #
  • Wow. "Do you honestly honestly feel just as beautiful without your makeup?" Arghhhh!!! THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD! #morningtvblues #
  • As in, no makeup? Makeup isn't beauty. RT @tenbreakfast: Naked Face Project: We talk to two ladies going without a beauty regime for 60 days #
  • Wow, breakfast television makes me feel ill. Apparently women can be builders because we do a lot of sewing (whut?). Lucky Ben 10 is on πŸ™‚ #
  • Just watched Fiddler on the Roof for the first time, in the theatre (at ANU). Was BRILLIANT! Amazing acting, singing, props, music. #fb #
  • .@bxmx tues after a long weekend is mega Monday. #
  • .@steveathon Coolies, if you are a gamer you might also appreciate "Ezio's more fun" πŸ™‚ http://t.co/0YB2CK3l #
  • Ah, "Cloud". I love it when ppl say "no hardware or software necessary!" or come up with the weirdest excuses to not host in Aus. #
  • Currently listening to an interesting speech in Australian Parliament on #tpp (radio). Sounds like Senator Christine Milne? See Hansard l8r #
  • Funny RT "US withdraws IANA RFP, β€˜no suitable responses’, ICANN manages to lose a one-horse race" http://t.co/rEYdLSNL via @regvulture #

  • Haha for 404's RT @lukehopewell: @piawaugh If they make this the new 404 page I wouldn't care: http://t.co/YkgB3yh5 #
  • Seems to be a lot of 404's on the new APH website http://t.co/j2Ohamdc including from menu items in the footer. Hope they are fixed soon. #
