My week of Monday 30 November to Sunday 6 December 2020 was introspective, productive, and nostalgic. I pondered the future, produced another lovely podcast, and remembered that just one year ago we faced those massive, massive bushfires.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 549: Warm weather, zombies, and memories of the bushfires”
This week of Monday 27 January to Sunday 2 February 2020 seems to have been my actual start of the year. I got some writing done. I got a three-hour podcast done. And I didn’t die in the heat when I went for a quiet drink.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 505: Finally, productivity begins for 2020”
The entire week of Monday 9 to Sunday 15 December 2019 was lost to gastrointestinal wonders, thanks very much. I still don’t know what’s going on down there. But let’s not dwell on that, because it’s finally started improving.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 498: Many smoke, no work, very poo”
My week of Monday 21 to Sunday 27 January 2019 wasn’t terribly productive, but I’m blaming that on Australia’s habit of shutting down at Christmas and remaining shut all the way through to Australia Day.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 452: Slow summer, with a famous train”

The Week Ahead
On Monday, I’m wrapping up this phase of work for DirectorTech, at least ideally. There’s a chance it might overflow into Tuesday. Either way, Tuesday will also contain the running of errands in Leura and Katoomba. And on Tuesday or Wednesday I’ll write something for ZDNet.
Thursday will be a long one. It’s a Sydney day, including a briefing from Symantec at lunchtime, the now-traditional Annual Communications Industry Boat Cruise on Sydney Harbour in the afternoon, and drinks and dinner with friends in the evening.
Friday and the weekend are as yet unplanned, but I know there’s a lot to fit in.
The key items are the two podcasts.
- Sunday 17 December: “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 5” will be recorded live at the West Ryde Hotel and streamed live from 1400 AEDT via stilgherrian.com/edict/live/ and Spreaker apps. You can still book a free audience spot.
- Tuesday 19 December: A regular episode, as always streamed live from stilgherrian.com/edict/live/ and Spreaker apps from 2100 AEDT.
Assuming that the Public House Forum podcast is well-received, I’m thinking of lining up more such episodes early in the new year. There’s support for the idea of doing one in Ballarat, with possibility of doing one in Melbourne en route. I’ll ponder that further in due course.
Other than that, I’ll be writing for ZDNet and generally winding down before the Christmas break. 2017 has been an exhausting year.

We’ve made it! Thanks to more than 50 supporters, there will be extra episodes of The 9pm Edict podcast over summer. With something secret and special added, because it’s, you know, summer.Continue reading “Updating “The 9pm Edict Summer Series””
