A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets — leaving out all of the most important bits.
I can’t tell you about the highly personal things that happened last week, except to say that something which had been gnawing at the very core of my being has… changed. And my mind is still adjusting. As is my shoulder, which continues to misbehave. But codeine is dealing with that. Again.
The tooth situation is being resolved, though. Stage one of the root canal work has been performed.
I can also tell you about the nauseatingly young-and-in-love hipsters, pictured above, with their matching skateboards and matching sneakers. Well, that’s all I want to tell you about them, or I’ll get cranky.
So with the linkage…

Every single media spot I did this week related to Apple and/or the death of Steve Jobs.
- On Wednesday I spoke with Adelaide radio 1395 FIVEaa about the iPhone 4S. But interest in the iPhone subsided when…
- … on Thursday the media spots about the death of Steve Jobs began. The first was with ABC Gold Coast.
- The second spot was with Triple J’s Hack.
- The third spot on Thursday was with ABC News24’s discussion program The Drum.
- And on Friday evening I spoke about the death of Steve Jobs on ABC 666 Canberra.
- On the weekend, I also provided some comments on Steve Jobs to the TECHGEEK Weekly podcast.
- On Thursday lunch, snacks and coffee were provided to me as an attendee at the Digital Culture Public Sphere event in Sydney.
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.
