Weekly Wrap 476: Down the rabbit-hole of healthcare, but not mine

My week of Monday 8 to Sunday 14 July 2019 was almost entirely devoted to supporting a friend with an acute health problem in Ashfield. I didn’t publish anything, but at least I can tell you about what’s coming up.

The Week Ahead

Monday is intended to be dedicated to getting my productivity back on track, but that depends on how my friend’s health is going.

On Tuesday I’m going to the Lowy Institute session Hugh White: How to defend Australia, followed by a medical appointment of my own. On Wednesday I’m covering the launch of the NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node. Yes, a node. Update 19 July 2019: Cancelled because I’m still on Health Patrol.

At this stage I’m planning to return to the Blue Mountains on Wednesday evening, but that will depend on my friend’s health and various logistical factors.

A new episode of The 9pm Edict podcast with Nicholas Fryer will be recorded on Thursday 18 July and posted that night. Update 19 July 2019: This has been rescheduled to Thursday 1 August, but I’ll be doing a solo episode before then.

The 9pm Edict is supported by the generosity of its listeners. Please subscribe for special benefits or throw a few coins into the tip jar.

Beyond that the schedule is not scheduled.

Further Ahead

Here’s a very partial list of some events that I’m planning to attend. Please let me know if there’s anything I should add. Send airline tickets.
