My week of Monday 26 September to Sunday 2 October 2016 was quite good, I think, for a whole bunch of reasons.
I did a decent amount of media production. I got one of my lingering geek-for-hire projects moving again. And it was a successful first week of the action plan put together by my doctor. Many wins.
I also launched a Pozible crowdfunding campaign, Stilgherrian > Melbourne 2016, to fund a variety of things late this month. Please consider.
- The dog ate my Census, says ABS, ZDNet Australia, 26 September 2016.
- Brandis swings his golden hammer, misses mark, ZDNet Australia, 29 September 2016. It’s about his plan to criminalise the re-identification of de-identified government data.
None, because I rescheduled the planned recording session for The 9pm Edict to this coming Wednesday.
- On Monday, ZDNet posted another short video in their Security TV series, Cyber civil defence for the rest of us. It’s part of a feature on Cyberwar and the Future of Cybersecurity.
- On Thursday, I spoke about the death of voicemail on ABC 1233 Newcastle.
The Week Ahead
Monday is Labour Day, a public holiday, so I’ll be trying to take it easy. I suspect I’ll fail.
On Tuesday, I’m writing for ZDNet, bringing my geek-for-hire projects up to date, and negotiating my next moves with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
On Wednesday, I’m recording and streaming an episode of The 9pm Edict podcast. That’s scheduled for 2100 AEST.
Thursday sees a medical appointment, the final episode of The Code at 2030 AEDT, and the wrap-up of my Pozible campaign at 2100 AEDT.
Friday will mostly be about some geek-for-hire work.
I’m hoping that the weekend will be the first with no actual work in quite some time. At least that’s the plan.
I plan to record the next Public House Forum episode of the Edict on Saturday 15 October somewhere in or near Sydney.
I’m going to the AISA National Conference in Sydney on 18-20 October, and the iappANZ Trust In Privacy Annual Summit in Sydney on 14 November.
I plan to be in Melbourne from 21-30 October, or thereabouts. The trip includes the Ruxcon Security Conference on Sat-Sun 22-23 Oct (I’m also on the closing panel), a radio spot on ABC 774 Melbourne on Tue 25 Oct at 1930 AEDT, MCing an event for LaTrobe University on the evening of Wed 26 Oct (details TBA), and recording a Public House Forum episode of the Edict on Sat 29 Oct.
