I’m way behind schedule, so I’ll only briefly mention the two annoyances.
On Friday I woke up early with a massive pain in my leg. Since I’d just done a long-distance flight I naturally thought of deep vein thrombosis, so I figured I’d better check it out. It turned out to be simple delayed onset muscle soreness, but of course I lost half a day in the hospital.
Then on Saturday I woke up to the news that Prussia.Net’s shared hosting server was dying. I lost eight hours on that. While the wonderful engineers at ServePath did the actual work, I still had to hang around to approve each step and keep clients informed.
As a result, this is all a little thinner than planned.
- Patch Monday episode 153, “App.net’s radical social network strategy: charge money”. A conversation with App.net founder, technologist and entrepreneur Dalton Caldwell. Will App.net be Twitter’s successor?
None. Though I’m working on a couple today for publication tomorrow.
- On Tuesday I did a spot on ABC 105.7 Darwin, but it wasn’t recorded my end so I can’t bring it to you today. However it was a pre-recorded spot, so with luck I’ll be able to get a copy from the ABC. Stand by.
- On Tuesday night I did another regular Balls Radio spot with Phil Dobbie, talking once more about online bullying.
- On Thursday afternoon I was on a security and privacy panel at the ACCAN National Conference. I’ll bring you a recording in due course.
- On Thursday night I spoke about government data retention plans with Dom Knight on ABC Local Radio.
- VMware covered my travel back to Australia, which included a limousine from San Francisco to San Jose, and flights from San Jose via Los Angeles to Sydney.
- On Thursday I attended the launch of Symantec’s Norton Cybercrime Report 2012 at Sydney’s Justice and Police Museum. They provided food and drink.
The Week Ahead
On Monday night I’m attending a SANS Sydney Community Night, with a presentation entitled “Your Security Monitoring – An Attacker’s Perspective”. Should be interesting. I’m not sure where my write-up will appear yet.
On Tuesday I’m headed to the Gold Coast to cover Microsoft’s TechEd 2012 event, which runs through to Friday. I’ll post more about that as I go. I’m not sure whether I’ll return to Sydney immediately it’s over or spend the weekend in Brisbane.
