I ended up spending much of it in Sydney, covering the CeBit Cyber Security conference and recording all manner of conversations — the results of the latter to appear over the coming weeks.
- Security goes military at CeBIT, iTnews, 30 May 2013.
- Australia, your lack of cyber transparency disturbs me, ZDNet Australia, 31 May 2013.
- On Tuesday morning I spoke about the National Broadband Network (NBN) on Radio Adelaide’s breakfast program.
- On Tuesday evening I spoke about the alleged Chinese hack of ASIO on the BBC World Service program World Have Your Say.
- On Tuesday I covered the CeBit Cyber Security conference, so as usual with such things there was food and drink.
- On Wednesday I had lunch at the Customs House Bar with some folks from Sourcefire, and they paid.
- On Wednesday night I was a guest of Kaspersky Lab at their dinner with Eugene Kaspersky at Aqua at Milsons Point. There was fine food and drink, a water taxi there and a Cabcharge voucher for the ride back.
The Week Ahead
Since it’s already quite late on Wednesday afternoon, all I’ll say is that I plan to head down to Sydney tomorrow, Thursday, for an interview recording — at least once I’ve got my ZDNet Australia column out of the way — and what happens for the rest of the week and the annoyingly-positioned long weekend will then depend upon circumstances.
And that’s not all I’m annoyed about.
