My week of Monday 14 to Sunday 20 March 2016 was pretty much as planned, though slightly more tiring than I’d hoped.
Right now I’m more in the mood to listen to the rain outside than write, so I’ll leave it there.
- US government demands for vendors’ source code are nothing new, ZDNet Australia, 18 March 2016.
None. But scroll down for details of a new episode of The 9pm Edict in just a few days.
- On Monday morning, I dropped into Tech Leaders Forum, and had a coffee on their tab. Nothing newsworthy was said, however.
The Week Ahead
I’m spending the short work week before Easter in Lilyfield, in Sydney’s inner west, as well as Easter itself. I’ll be working steadily through three geek-for-hire projects, catching up a big chunk of that bookkeeping for the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), and writing a ZDNet column.
On Wednesday night, I’m finally recording and streaming that episode of The 9pm Edict podcast. That’s at 2100 AEDT on this website. Details will be posted on Monday.
The short week after Easter will be an extension of the plan just described. So will the following week, at least at this stage.
After that, I should be in Canberra on 12-14 April for the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Conference. A plan is slowly evolving.
I’ll definitely be on the Gold Coast on 24-27 May for the AusCERT Cyber Security Conference.
Update 23 March 2016: Edited to reflect changed plans.
