A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. I’m feeling lazy this weekend, after a fairly intense and sleep-lacking time, so I’ll post this early.
- Patch Monday episode 116, “Is anonymity online your right?” Highlights of the media140 Australia panel discussion on digital anonymity.
- The 9pm Edict episode 14, which includes material recorded at Thursday night’s CBS Interactive Christmas Party.
Not a lot in the written-words department this week, but I’m very, very happy with the one piece I did write.
- Influence without Klout, Technology Spectator, 28 November 2011. All this “social influence measurement” stuff is bullshit as far as I can see, and this article explains why.
- On Tuesday I spoke with ABC Gold Coast about exploding iPhones and some information security tips for the holidays. Alas, I didn’t record it.
- On Wednesday I spoke with ABC 105.7 Darwin about the Downfall parody internet meme and the like. There isn’t a recording of this one either.
- On Thursday I was on the ZDNet Live panel discussion Bringing the Cloud Down to Earth.
The Christmas party season has started. Expect this section to expand considerably over the next few weeks.
- On Wednesday, the guys from Bleeply bought me a cider, and I didn’t have time to return the favour.
- On Thursday afternoon, the Internet Industry Association hosted a two-hour cruise on Sydney Harbour with food and drink, sponsored by Enex TestLab.
- On Thursday night, CBS Interactive held their Christmas Party with food and lots of drink. But does that count? I do work for ZDNet Australia, and that’s a CBS masthead.
- On Friday, Watterson Public Relations held their Christmas Lunch at the South Steyne Floating Restaurant, Darling Harbour.
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.
