My week of Monday 22 to Sunday 28 February 2016 was another relative unproductive one, for reasons explained last time, but it was an improvement. Improvement is good.
A personal update will be posted in the next few days. For now, on with the show…
None, but I do want to wrap up that episode of The 9pm Edict podcast very soon. See below.
None, but I have a ZDNet column being published on Monday.
- I spoke about Apple’s Error 53 problem and (briefly) about the company’s battle with the FBI on this week’s Balls Radio. You can hear me 46 min 41 sec into the program.
- On Wednesday, I spoke about smartphone data usage and battery life on ABC South West WA. I don’t have a recording, but it’s more or less the same information as last week’s chat on ABC Kimberley and in the ABC News story, Simple tricks to double your phone’s battery life and halve your data usage.
- Also on Wednesday, I spoke about Li-Fi on ABC 666 Canberra. I don’t have a recording, but you can read the ABC News story, Li-fi ‘100 times faster than wi-fi’ at shine of a light presented at Mobile World Congress.
The Week Ahead
This will be the first is a series of quite structured weeks for me, which will be a challenge. I daresay I may have to change a few things as I go along. But with that said, here’s the plan…
On Monday, I’ll catch the 0734 train to Sydney, completing my ZDNet column en route. At 1100, I’ll catch VA834 SYD-MEL. Once I’ve checked in to my hotel, I’ll bring my various geek-for-hire projects up to date.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I’ll be covering the APIdays conference for ZDNet, and catching up with friends in the evenings. On Thursday, I’ll be writing for ZDNet, and having a couple of work-related meetings, before catching VA859 MEL-SYD at 1600. I’ll probably return to Wentworth Falls that night.
Friday through Saturday? Well, that depends on my energy levels. But I hope to get that podcast done somewhere in there.
The following week, I’ll be in Canberra from Monday 7 March for the Australian Internet Industry Association (AIIA) Navigating Privacy and Security Summit on Tuesday. I’ll probably stay in Canberra on Wednesday. Then on Sunday, I’ll be back in the Blue Mountains for Tech Leaders.
I’ll be in Canberra again 12-14 April for the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Conference. And I’ll be on the Gold Coast on 24-27 May for the AusCERT Cyber Security Conference.
