My week of Monday 30 April to Sunday 6 May 2018 contained these things, in addition to fighting off a cold.
- Who leaked the idea of ASD spying on Australians, and why?, ZDNet Australia, 30 April 2018. I wrote that piece when this story about the Australian Signals Directorate was only beginning to unfold. The Saturday Paper had a detailed front-page story yesterday, Cabinet split on Duttonâ€™s ASD plan.
- â€œAnnouncing â€˜The 9pm Brisbane Forumâ€™â€, being an audio promo for the Pozible campaign of the same name. You can also listen to it on Speaker or SoundCloud. Do please consider pledging your support if you want the podcasts listed below to happen.

The Week Ahead
