My week of Monday 24 to Sunday 30 October 2016 was spent in Melbourne, being busy, and being a bit of a media whore.
Since this Weekly Wrap is late, just like last week’s, I’ll get straight into it.
- International mobile data networks still a serious security problem, ZDNet Australia, 24 October 2016.
- Censusfail: An omnishambles of fabulous proportions, ZDNet Australia, 26 October 2016.
None, but I recorded material for another Ruxcon-related episode of Corrupted Nerds, and The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 4. Both will appear during the week of 7 November.
