After every up, there is a down. That’s how waves work. That’s how tides work. That’s how rollercoasters work. My week of Monday 16 to Sunday 22 October 2017 was less hectic than last week.
Some important background tasks were accomplished, but this is all that was visible to the world.
- Following news that the KRACK Attack breaks the WPA2 encryption used by wi-fi networks, on Tuesday I was the guest on the ABC News podcast Tell Me Straight, KRACK: Should you throw out your WiFi and go live in the woods?, and I did a spot on ABC Adelaide. I didn’t write about this formally, but I did tweet out some opinions.
- On Wednesday, one of my tweets was quoted in a story at The Mandarin, Link between Govpass and Medicare numbers stirs identity fraud anxiety.

None, but coming up…
The Week Ahead
Monday will be a jumbled day of geekery, editorial planning, story pitches, administrivia, and maybe even errands.
The next episode of The 9pm Edict podcast will be recorded on Tuesday 24 October at 2100 AEST. As has become traditional, it will be streamed live via stilgherrian.com/edict/live/. You still have time to support this podcast with a one-off contribution.
I’ll also be announcing a new crowdfunding campaign on Pozible. It’s been more than a year since my last concentrated ask-for-money burst, and the gods know my budget needs it. Stay tuned for details.
On Wednesday, I’ll be recording an interview for the next episode of the Covert Contact podcast. If you haven’t done so, you can listen to my first appearance, the episode about Australian Cyber Policy.
As is so often the case, the rest of the week is unplanned, including the weekend.
At this stage, I haven’t locked in anything specific for the rest of the calendar year. Please feel free to make some suggestions.
