Most of my week Monday 23 to Sunday 29 May 2016 was spent on the Gold Coast, although it began in the Blue Mountains and ended in Sydney, all as planned.
- “The 9pm Detachable Foreskin Monologue”, being The 9pm Edict episode 58, 23 May 2016. The podcast is also available on SoundCloud and Spreaker.
- No stars for Internet of Things security, ZDNet Australia, 27 May 2016. This is the first article of several that will be based on material gathered at the AusCERT 2016 conference.
- On Thursday, I spoke about various AusCERT-related infosec topics on ABC Gold Coast.
- I’ve only just discovered it, but on 16 May one of my photographs was used to illustrate a story at The Conversation, How ‘gamification’ can make transport systems and choices work better for us.
- My journey to the Gold Coast was covered by AusCERT, who provided return flights SYD-OOL; airport transfers; three nights accommodation at Marriott Surfers Paradise; and an ample sufficiency of food and drink. I didn’t gather much swag, just some essentials. Avecto: Wednesday morning Berocca. Palo Alto Networks: a copy of Cybersecurity for Dummies.
The Week Ahead
I should be in Sydney for the whole week. With no specific appointments at this stage, apart from a medical appointment on Wednesday, I’ll work through some writing for ZDNet, the several geek-for-hire projects, and the neverending tax bookkeeping.
That said, on one day I’ll need to collect my audio gear from Wentworth Falls. On another, I want to do an audio test at Hurstville, to see if it’ll be possible to live-stream the podcast recording session.
On Saturday afternoon, I’m recording The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 3 at the Hurstville Ritz Hotel. On Sunday morning, I’ll edit and post that podcast.
