Weekly Wrap 35

A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. Which wasn’t much, because Sydney continued to swelter in the heat while I was busy packing up the Enmore house — and I’ll tell you more about that later.

Articles

None. Terrible, eh? Well, I did rant about sky spam. Although that was here on this website rather than elsewhere.

Podcasts

  • Patch Monday episode 74, “Microsoft-Google-Apple 3-way cage fight”. A panel discussion about the three biggest technology companies and their future. My guests? Sam Higgins, research director at Brisbane-based ICT research and advisory company Longhaus. Derry Finkeldey, principal research analyst with Gartner specialising in branding and marketing issues. And Keith Ahern, founder of one of Australia’s leading mobile application developers, Mogeneration.

Media Appearances

  • On Friday I spoke with Kate O’Toole on ABC Radio Darwin 105.7 about the internet running out of IP addresses. And here’s a recording — which is obviously ©2011 Australian Broadcasting Corporation but since they’re not doing anything with it I might as well use it to plug Kate’s excellent program.

None.

Elsewhere

Most of my day-to-day observations are on my high-volume Twitter stream, and random photos and other observations turn up on my Posterous stream. The photos also appear on Flickr, where I eventually add geolocation data and tags.

Weekly Wrap 34

A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. It’s a bit thin this week, thanks to the Australia Day holiday, clearing junk out of the house before moving, and the ridiculous heat Sydney is experiencing at the moment.

Podcasts

  • Patch Monday episode 73, “Inside Intel’s second-generation core”. My guest is systems architect Benno Rice.

Media Appearances

  • On Sunday I was a guest on the Parity Bit video podcast. At least the recording was on Sunday afternoon. It’s likely to be the early hours of Monday before the episode appears online. I will update this post to link directly to the podcast once it’s online. And here it is.

Weekly Wrap 33

A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. It’s already Monday, which makes this post late. You’ll cope. There isn’t a photo this week either. You’ll cope with that too.

Weekly Wrap 31 and 32

A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets — which actually covers two weeks because of various distractions.

Articles

Podcasts

  • Patch Monday episode 71, “Avoiding Vodafone’s Wikileaks moment”. Paul Ducklin, who is Sophos’ head of technology for the Asia-Pacific region, reckons Vodafone’s problem is much like the US government’s with WikiLeaks: too many people have logins which give them access to too much stuff. Our conversation covered what organisations should be doing to avoid a disaster like Vodafone’s happening to them.

  • Donations to the Artemis Medical Fund included $100 from online accounting software provider Saasu and $50 from an elected NSW politician from the Australian Labor Party.

Weekly Wrap 30

In the week between Christmas and New Year I didn’t write anything for anyone, I didn’t do any podcasts, I didn’t appear in the media anywhere, and I didn’t receive any corporate largesse. I’m just posting this post so the numerical sequence of “Weekly Wrap” posts is consistent.
