My week of Monday 13 to Sunday 19 October 2014 must have been influenced by the photo I posted last week, because it did end up snowing in the Blue Mountains — but no closer than 8km from me.
So, in the interests of triggering pleasant spring conditions for the week ahead, I’ve kicked off with another pleasant photo from my archives.
- Dropbox password scam shows up our sloppy infosec, ZDNet Australia, 14 October 2014.
- How ABC 702 Sydney failed the Blue Mountains, and Twitter won this morning, Crikey, 15 October 2014.
I’ve also written a second piece for ZDNet Australia, but it won’t appear until Monday.
- On Wednesday, I moderated an event for Electronic Frontiers Australia and the Australian Privacy Foundation, “Data Retention: the European Experience”, which was a public conversation with Privacy International’s legal director Carly Nyst. A full audio recording will appear on Monday as an episode of the Corrupted Nerds: Conversations podcast.
- On Friday, I spoke about voiceprints and biometric ID on 1395 FIVEaa.
The Week Ahead
It’ll be a busy one. While I haven’t mapped out exactly what will happen each day — I can’t do so until a certain tardy clients pays me and I can lock in certain commitments — there’s plenty of media objects to make.
A new ZDNet Australia column and a new Corrupted Nerds podcast will appear on Monday, as I said. After that, I’ve got two ZDNet Australia pieces to write, and an episode of The 9pm Edict to produce. I also want to resurrect the 5at5 newsletter, but that has a lower priority.
The weekend is unplanned.
