Weekly Wrap 428: Did anything even happen?

Sydney Central station, with faunaMy week of Monday 6 to Sunday 12 August 2018 looks strangely empty. I’m not sure why, because it felt quite busy. As this brief Weekly Wrap reveals.

Articles, Podcasts, Media Appearances, Corporate Largesse

None of any of these things appeared, which is odd. And yes, I must get those podcasts sorted.

The Week Ahead

Monday and Tuesday are Sydney days, with a medical appointment, writing for ZDNet, and some geekery for clients, before returning to Wentworth Falls on Tuesday evening.

The rest of the week is a mix of writing for ZDNet, looking at this dire podcast situation, and maybe some more geekery.

Further Ahead

I’ve pencilled in:

Update 1255 AEST: Edited to reflect schedule change.

We explore one of the world’s greatest coincidences. President Donald Trump finally does something sensible. And we bring you the latest in science.

There’s also talk of Bitcoin, bin chickens, nuclear weapons, and UFOs. And Nicholas Fryer takes a look through The Arch Window.

Weekly Wrap 332: A post-ibis period of calm

Attack of the Killer Ibis: click to embiggenMy week of Monday 3 to Sunday 9 October 2016 was relatively quiet, in part because it was a short week after the long weekend, in part because of snuffling.

Indeed, there was a considerable amount of snuffling as strong winds blew dust and pollen into a frenzy of hay fever.

None. It’s the calm before the storm.

The Week Ahead

On Monday, I’ll tidy up certain geek-for-hire work, finalise the logistics for my forthcoming Melbourne trip, post a progress report on that and the Pozible campaign, and go for a long walk as advised by my doctor.

On Tuesday, I’ll record and stream that episode of The 9pm Edict podcast that didn’t get produced last week. The livestream is scheduled for 2100 AEDT from the new permanent location stilgherrian.com/edict/live.

On Wednesday morning, I’m going to a media briefing by Nuix, followed by shopping and other errands.

Thursday sees some writing for ZDNet, as well as another medical appointment.

Friday will be another mix of geek-for-hire work, writing, and administrivia.

I have cancelled plans to record The 9pm Edict Public House Forum this Saturday 15 October. I’ll be concentrating on the coming weeks instead.

Further Ahead

The following weeks will be crazy busy. Rather than manually updating this list, however, I’ve created a new calendar page, Stilgherrian in Public.

That said, I’ll be in Melbourne from 21 to 30 October.
