A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. It’s already Monday, which makes this post late. You’ll cope. There isn’t a photo this week either. You’ll cope with that too.
- Reading Steve Jobs’ entrails, is it time for Apple to come clean?, for Crikey, written following the announcement that Apple’s CEO was on indefinite medical leave.
- Forget Steve Jobs, Appleâ€™s rolling in cash, for Crikey, written the next day, when Apple announced record revenue and profits. Again.
- Google kids have grown up, but where will they take the firm?, for Crikey, being an overview of Google’s place in the world following the announcement that co-founder Larry Page will be replacing hired-help “designated adult” Eric Schmidt as CEO in April.
- Patch Monday episode 72, “Flood-proofing your business IT”. My guests are Tom Worthington, who works at both ANU and the CSIRO and has a particular interested in emergency IT and disaster planning, and Lewis Benge, founder of Qld IT Relief.
- On Thursday I spoke with Liz Ellis, the former Australian netball captain and now radio presenter on ABC Radio 702 Sydney about the great work the Queensland Police did using their official Twitter and Facebook accounts during the recent floods.
- On Tuesday, Acronis paid for lunch at the Italian Village restaurant in The Rocks as they announced the Acronis Global Disaster Recovery Index.
- Also on Tuesday, Intel Australia provided quite adequate catering for the Australian launch of their 2nd Generation Intel Core processors in the laughably-named Crystal Ballroom at Luna Park. They also shouted a water taxi to take us across Sydney Harbour to the Opera Bar at Sydney Opera House.
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.
