My week of Monday 30 March to Sunday 5 April 2015 was and action-packed week of extremes. Kinda.
Well, I made it up as I went along. I was in both Sydney and the Blue Mountains. The weather was variable. Does that count as extreme? How about standing right next to David Marr while he was paying attention to other people and I felt ignored and sulky?
Coming soon to a games store near you, Extreme David Marr.
- Immigration’s G20 email bungle was only the first fail, ZDNet Australia, 31 March 2015.
- Australia’s foreign aid goes agile, making many assumptions, ZDNet Australia, 2 April 2015.
- I’m not sure whether this counts, but I did a brief announcement regarding The 9pm Edict. There’ll be a real episode on 7 April, finally.
Four editions of 5at5 this week, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. You should subscribe, you know. If you subscribe, Jesus will love you. Promise.
- On Monday, I spoke about Bitcoin’s blockchain on 2SER’s The Wire.
The Week Ahead
On Monday, despite it being a public holiday, I’ll be producing the bulk of an episode of The 9pm Edict. On Tuesday, I’ll be doing some errands and shopping in Leura and Katoomba in the morning. In the afternoon, I’ll be planning out some writing for April. And in the evening, I’ll publish the completed podcast.
On Wednesday, I’ll be updating my regular lecture for journalism students at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
On Thursday, I’ll be making the long commute to Sydney to deliver that lecture at UTS at 0900. Then at 1030 I’m going to the Australian launch of VMware’s vCloudAir. And then I’ll be writing for ZDNet Australia probably.
Friday through Sunday are currently unplanned. It will include, however, the turning of the UTS lecture into a podcast, some writing for someone else, and a variety of revenue-generating activities.
The squid is none of your business.
