My week of Monday 30 December 2013 to Sunday 5 January 2014 was, like last week, devoid of productivity and reportable interestingness thanks to the slow week between Christmas and New Year and the slow days thereafter.
I have been thinking about 2014, however, and I may pour some of those thoughts into a blog post some time in the next few days. The brief version is roughly “Thank fuck 2013 is over and done with, and here’s to a much better 2014.”
Certainly yesterday, Saturday, contained a significantly odd and yet strangely wonderful event.
No, there shall be no details.
The Week Ahead
Well, the working year kicks off properly tomorrow, Monday, so I guess I’ll be starting to focus on planning out January. I have very little mapped out just now — the only firm appointments are a couple of social events — but with the PR folks back at their desks tomorrow, the next few days will see the invitations and other communications kick off.
And I need to placate my editors after a rather unproductive November and December.
I’m in Sydney currently, and will stay in Sydney through to Tuesday before returning to Wentworth Falls — though there’s a chance that plan might change at relatively short notice. As always.
I know I have some writing to do, namely my usual column for ZDNet Australia and the remaining loose ends for the Corrupted Nerds hacker conference thingy.

If you are in Sydney and doing nothing else you might wish to watch the Julian Assange movie MEDIASTAN (Produced by Julian Assange) – 6:20pm to 9pm Wednesday 15th January 2014 Chauevel Cinvema 17 Oxford Street Paddington . It’s adults only as it’s currently unrated – which means it hasn’t been approved by the OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classiifcation).
This is the same cinema where Baise Moi was screened (with an R18+ rating).
For the record MEDIASTAN would probably be rated G or PG. It contains NO nudity, NO profane language, NO violence and lots of interesting views of Central Asia.
It cannot be said that the Wikileaks journalists did it “tough”. They are shown interviewing well dressed people in plush offices – most of whom seem only mildly interested in what Wikileaks is, has been or or might be doing…..
Here’s some photographs taken at the Mediastan screening..
