I’ve also started to get a clearer idea of where I want to take my media work in 2014, but more about that another time.
- Obama’s proposed NSA ‘reform’ changes nothing, ZDNet Australia, 20 January 2014.
- Is this the world’s safest phone?, Technology Spectator, 24 January 2014. This is my intro to Blackphone for the business folk.
- Our hackers, who art in open source, deliver us from refrigerators, ZDNet Australia, 24 January 2014. I think it’s fair to say that I had a lot of fun with this piece.
- On Monday I spoke about digital privacy and Apple being forced to give refunds on Adelaide commercial radio 1395 FIVEaa.
- On Wednesday I spoke about the government’s discussion paper on online safety for children on ABC 702 Sydney, but it seems like I accidentally deleted the recording. Oops.
- On Thursday I spoke about passwords on ABC 105.7 Darwin.
- On Tuesday one of the police sergeants at Katoomba gave me two packets of blue jelly beans. This is not a euphemism. They were part of the community outreach they were doing at the Katoomba Village shops. They were yummy.
There was nothing more substantial, surprisingly. But the coming week has some, and I’m looking forward to it.
The Week Ahead
I’ve finally caught up with these posts, so it’s now worth writing about my plans again. I wonder how long this will last?
As I write this on a holiday Monday afternoon, I’m still in the Blue Mountains.
However I plan to be in Sydney overnight on Tuesday and Thursday, in both cases because there’s a good chance that certain business-social events in the evening could run a bit late. Or a bit messy. Or both. I’ll be in Sydney Tuesday through to Friday.
Tuesday will primarily be about mapping out the next few weeks — something that needs re-doing after the unproductive weeks disrupted my previous version of the plan. I won’t jinx it now by proposing when I do what, however. Let’s just watch it unfold.
[Update 28 January 2014, 1055 AEDT: Deleted references to being in Sydney on Tuesday. Plans changed.]
[Update 29 January 2014, 1610 AEDT: Changed references to when I’d be in Sydney again. Because plans changed again.]
