Once more the Weekly Wrap has been hideously delayed, so it’ll just be the facts.
A key part of the week was my trip to Canberra, mainly to cover the speech by Eugene Kaspersky to the National Press Club, but also to squeeze in some meetings with other people while I was there. Kaspersky seems to have dominated my media output for the week.
- Corrupted Nerds: Conversations 8, being a chat about electronic voting with Dr Vanessa Teague from the University of Melbourne. If you think e-voting is the cure for electoral fraud and mistakes, you’d better listen.
- Cyber espionage ‘extremely dangerous’ for international trust: Kaspersky, ZDNet Australia, 7 November 2013.
- You’re not making cyberweapons, are you?, ZDNet Australia, 8 November 2013.
- On Thursday I spoke about Net Neutrality on ABC Radio National Drive.
- On Friday I spoke about Bitcoin on an ABC Radio AM story about a massive Bitcoin robbery.
- On Thursday I went to the National Press Cub in Canberra to hear Eugene Kaspersky’s address. I was a guest at the Kaspersky Lab table, and they paid for my flights from Sydney. I paid for my own accommodation because the Kaspersky thing itself could have been a day trip.
