My week of Monday 10 to Sunday 16 February 2014 isn’t quite finished, but today is effectively the start of a new working week so… well, here we are. Before breakfast at Sydney Airport. Or right next to it. Call it a wrap of Monday to Saturday.
It seems that I switched from early-month torpor to late-month productivity around mid-week. We’ll see how that pans out over the next few days. But I do think I’m starting to identity a clear pattern here.
- What the Dickens will Brandis do to copyright in the digital realm?, ZDNet Australia, 14 February 2014. I’ve already had plenty of positive feedback about my critique of the Attorney-General’s speech from Friday morning, which makes me happy.
- Kim Coindashian? How bitcoin is going the way of the tulip, Crikey, 14 February 2014.
- On Wednesday I hosted a panel discussion on digital privacy for Hitachi Data Systems.
I suppose I should give better prominence to 5at5, the “email letter” that I started two weeks ago. I’ve actually managed to stick to the daily routine — albeit with some wobbliness in the “around 5pm Sydney time” part of the deal — and it seems like people are liking it. Enjoy.
- 5at5 number 6, 10 February 2014.
- 5at5 number 7, 11 February 2014.
- 5at5 number 8, 12 February 2014.
- 5at5 number 9, 13 February 2014.
- 5at5 number 10, 14 February 2014.
- Today I’m heading to the Gold Coast for the three-day Tech Leaders Forum 2014, formerly known as Kickstart Forum, an event I’ve attended in previous years. The event organisers cover my airfares and accommodation, and there’s usually plenty of food and drink and various freebies from the vendors who pay for it all. I’ll list all of the largesse next week so it’s all in the one place.
The Week Ahead
I’ll be on the Gold Coast through until Tuesday evening, fully occupied with the aforementioned event. I’ll then return to the Blue Mountains for a solid week of writing. There’s nothing locked in for Sydney at this stage, but of course that may change.
