Weekly Wrap 452: Slow summer, with a famous train

My week of Monday 21 to Sunday 27 January 2019 wasn’t terribly productive, but I’m blaming that on Australia’s habit of shutting down at Christmas and remaining shut all the way through to Australia Day.

Articles, Podcasts, Media Appearances, Corporate Largesse

Nothing public happened in any of these categories, though I’ve written most of a story for ZDNet that will be published on Tuesday morning.

In the background, I did a huge amount of work related to The 9pm Edict podcast. This includes moving it from this website to a redesigned Skank Media website, where it will be joined by the old Corrupted Nerd podcast and any future projects. I’ve also started working on the best-of compilation episodes.

This website also got a bit of a makeover, which is far from finished.

The Week Ahead

Monday is a public holiday, so very little will be done. Tuesday and Wednesday will be about research and writing and settling back into a work rhythm.

On Thursday I’m going to a recording of Pointless Australia, which should be fun.

I’ll also keep working on the Skank Media / The 9pm Edict / Corrupted Nerds website. The aim is to get everything cleaned up as quickly as possible so I can get the Edict back onto iTunes and other platforms, before some solid promotion and fundraising. More on that soon.

Further Ahead

Nick Fryer and I will be recording the next joint episode of The 9pm Edict podcast on Thursday 21 February, though I hope to produce one or two best-of episodes before then.

I’m starting to pencil in some of the year’s conferences and other events. This is a very partial list at this stage. Please let me know if there’s anything I should add.
