It was very much the calm before another couple of very busy weeks.
- Rushed My Health Record changes still missing the point, ZDNet Australia, 7 November 2018.
Podcasts, Media Appearances, Corporate Largesse
None. As I said last week, these categories tend to come in waves. But there’ll be new podcasts soon, as detailed below.
The Week Ahead
On Monday I return to Sydney, writing for ZDNet en route, then heading to a lunchtime briefing on technology in health and aged care, then getting some back repairs.
I’ll remain in Sydney to cover a Tuesday morning session on the Future of Health, at an event sponsored by the Commonwealth Bank, then lunch meeting, then an evening meeting. There should also be more My Health Record action in the Senate, so I’ll be writing about that.
I return to the Mountains on Wednesday evening, after a day of writing. Thursday is likely to be about writing and the shopping. On Friday there’s another Senate hearing on the Assistance and Access Bill, the anti-encryption legislation, so I’ll be keeping an ear on that.
After all that I’ll want a quiet weekend.
The following week will begin with more writing, then from Wednesday through Saturday I’ll be back in Sydney for some cat-sitting.
The next episode of The 9pm Edict podcast will be recorded on the afternoon of Tuesday 20 November. It won’t be streamed live, but it will be posted the following day.
