A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. We’re late this week, posted on Monday rather than Sunday, because I forgot. That and, well, it’s a holiday anyway so the new week doesn’t start until Tuesday.
- Patch Monday episode 91, “Tackling cybersecurity: it’s a start”, being a continuation of my thoughts emerging from National Cyber Security Awareness Week last week.
- Santorum’s presidential hopes face a sticky problem, for Crikey. Santorum may be running for president in the US, but thanks to Dan Savage he’s got a problem.
- Less pep talks, more stick on cybersecurity, for ZDNet Australia. I’m quite happy with this op-ed calling for a little bit more aggression from the government against slack corporate security.
- Hywood on Fairfaxâ€¦ expectation, hoping, wishingâ€¦, for Crikey. Based on my encounter with the CEO of the Fairfax media empire, Greg Hywood.
- The Weiner show: we have no prick of conscience, for Crikey. As editor Sophie Black put it, I’m working blue this week.
- On Friday I spoke with Kate O’Toole on ABC 105.7 Darwin about cloud computing. And here’s the audio.
- On Tuesday I attended the Mumbrella360 conference on media and marketing, which involved the usual level of food and drink for such things — first at the Hilton Hotel and then at the Arthouse Hotel.
- On Thursday I went to the welcome reception for X|Media|Lab’s current Sydney event, which again involved food and drink, this time at Customs House. I didn’t actually go to the conference itself, for various reasons.
- On Monday and Thursday I was taken to lunch by two different people who are interested in having me work on forthcoming projects. I can’t talk about either of them yet — they may not even happen — but this was really just the usual introductions over lunch thing.
Most of my day-to-day observations are on my high-volume Twitter stream, and random photos and other observations turn up on my Posterous stream. The photos also appear on Flickr, where I eventually add geolocation data and tags.
