Weekly Wrap 456: Cyberwar and podcast plans

My week of Monday 18 to Sunday 24 February 2019 was an adequate mix of productivity and de-stressing. Let’s concentrate on the former for now.



Corporate Largesse

  • On Monday I went to a media briefing at CrowdStrike’s office in North Sydney. They provide a yummy light lunch while we discussed their new Global Threat Report. Update 3 March 2019: CrowdStrike also gave us all branded notepads and pens, and a copy of their pretty wall calendar.

The Week Ahead

Monday is a busy one. I’m heading down to Sydney, working on the train as usual, to go to the lunchtime event Frontier cyberwars and what’s next: in-conversation with The New York Times’ David E Sanger. I have a medical appointment in the afternoon, then some social things, then a radio spot on ABC Melbourne at 2100 AEST. I’ll stay in Sydney overnight.

On Thursday, Nick Fryer and I will be recording the next joint episode of The 9pm Edict podcast. It will be posted that night. The first best-of episode will be posted some time before then, however.

Update 28 February 2019: On Thursday it’ll be the best-of episode. For various reasons I’ve put the new episode recording back another week, to 7 March.

All manner of research and writing will be happening around those commitments, to be scheduled as I go along.

Further Ahead

I hope to spend some time in Canberra in the next few weeks, but I haven’t figured out any dates yet. If there’s any event I should be there for, please let me know. No one has so far.

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