The week of Monday 30 September to Sunday 6 October saw me quoted briefly in a new political biography. Otherwise, though, I was less productive that I’d hoped. The waves of fatigue returned, which meant I missed CSIRO’s D61+LIVE conference.
- ANU incident report on massive data breach a must-read, ZDNet Australia, 3 October 2019.
None. I really must look at this podcast schedule soon.
- I’m quoted in the new biography Penny Wong: Passion and Principle by the redoubtable Margaret Simons, because I was very good friends with Senator Wong’s late younger brother Toby. I’m about one-third of the way through reading it, and it’s excellent.
- On Tuesday night I spoke about The Core on ABC Adelaide, and this time I even posted a recording.
Being reminded of two significant episodes from my past caused quite a bit of introspection this week. No wonder I was also very tired.
None, though there would’ve been plenty if I’d made it to D61+LIVE.
The Week Ahead
Despite Monday being a public holiday in NSW, in the afternoon I’m flying down to Melbourne because from that evening through to Wednesday I’m covering the Australian Cyber Conference 2019. The excellent Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Conference has now been rolled into this event.
I’m staying in Melbourne through until Sunday evening, writing up material from that jam-packed event as well as, I hope, finding some time for myself.
Here’s what’s planned. Please let me know if there’s anything I should add. Send airline tickets.
- Cyber Security Hypothetical Panel, Canberra, 22 October 2019.
- NetThing, Sydney, 28 October 2019.
- iapp ANZ Summit 2019, Sydney, 29–30 October 2019 (TBC). That’s the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
- Gala dinner celebrating 30 Years of the Internet in Australia, Sydney, 31 October 2019.
- APNIC 49 / APRICOT 2020, Melbourne 18–21 February 2020.
