I pulled back the pace for my week of Monday 4 to Sunday 10 June 2018. Brisbane’s sunny weather contributed to that at the start of the week. Fatigue sorted out the rest.
I did record a wonderful interview with John Birmingham, however, so watch out for that to appear soon in podcast form.
- Australian government committed to ‘no backdoors’: Taylor, ZDNet Australia, 8 June 2018. The language in Taylor’s speech about the government’s intention to tackle encrypted messaging is interesting.
Podcasts, Media Appearances, Corporate Largesse
None, but there will be two podcasts quite soon.
The Week Ahead
Despite it being the Queen’s Birthday holiday, Monday will join Tuesday in being a work day. Writing, that’s the plan, mostly for the Crikey project. Unless some news breaks, and I have a feeling in my waters that it will.
On Wednesday I’m off to Canberra for the conference Building Australia’s Strategy for Space being run by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI).
I’ll stay in Canberra for the weekend.
Things I’ve pencilled in:
- SINET 61, Melbourne, 31 July â€“ 1 August. (TBC)
- D61+ LIVE, Brisbane, 18â€“19 September. (TBC)
- Australian Cyber Conference, formerly the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) National Conference, Melbourne, 9â€“11 October.
