My week of Monday 26 November to Sunday 2 December 2018 was rich and varied, with a little more research and writing than I’d expected.
- How government haste is ruining its own anti-encryption law, ZDNet Australia, 26 November 2018. Since this was written there have been development. On Friday, Labor announced that it would be demanding a delay.
- Autonomous cyber defences are the future: Richard Stiennon, ZDNet Australia, 29 November 2018.
I’ve also written nearly all of another ZDNet article, which is likely to appear on Monday.
Podcasts, Media Appearances
- On Tuesday, Cybereason’s briefing session was held at STUDIO at the top of Sydney Tower. There was good food and quite a lot of wine.
The Week Ahead
After a slow start, Monday is a writing day, as well as a day of administrivia for the first working day of the month.
On Tuesday I head down to Sydney for a medical appointment, to interview a cybersecurity executive, and to attend a Sydney Ideas evening lecture on White Fragility. I’ll stay in Sydney overnight so can work in Sydney on Wednesday.
I’ll head to Sydney again on Thursday morning, slightly earlier, for a dental appointment, some errands, the ever-dangerous annual Annual Communications & Internet Community Boat Cruise, and dinner with a friend. Once more I’ll stay in Sydney overnight, with Friday as a writing day of some sort.
The weekend is not yet planned.
Nicholas Fryer and I will be recording another joint episode of The 9pm Edict podcast on Thursday 22 December, and it should be posted that night.
