It’s a shame. I have the workings of several quite good articles in various stages of assembly on the computer, and invitations to take part in a variety of interesting unpaid projects. At least half of them will progress no further.
- Patch Monday episode 159, “Identify yourself! This is the internet!” A conversation with Allison Cerra, vice-president of marketing, communications and public affairs for Alcatel-Lucent in the Americas, and co-author of the book Identity Shift: Where Identity Meets Technology in the Networked-Community Age.
- [Update 27 October 2012: Missing item added.] On Tuesday I was quoted in Harrison Polites’ article for Technology Spectator, The BYOD security commandments.
- On Friday the new Balls Radio podcast was posted, wherein I spoke about Microsoft Surface.
- On Monday I had lunch at a North Sydney cafe with Marc Brown, managing consultant of Trustwave SpiderLabs in Australia, along with members of their external PR team. They paid. I believe I had smoked salmon salad.
The Week Ahead
It’s a busy week of writing ahead, after the usual Monday scramble to complete the Patch Monday podcast. At this stage it looks like I’ll be in Sydney on Wednesday and overnight into Thursday. The weekend is currently unplanned, but that will be fixed later today.
