Weekly Wrap 543: Generosity, moistness, and cybers

Monday 19 to Sunday 25 October 2020 was a happy one. A successful crowdfunding campaign. Productivity. And the start of a streak of rainy weather. Joy.

I’m still missing travelling, though, which is why I’ve got another aerial view in the header.


This would be the perfect time to pledge your support.


The ZDNet videos we shot last week are starting to be published.

The Week Ahead

It’s week 32 of the Quarantimes at Bunjaree Cottages at Wentworth Falls, though I’ll be down in Sydney from Friday. I’ll be focusing on the first draft of the update to my 2019 Carnegie Endowment paper, The Encryption Debate in Australia, and on Saturday night’s livestream.

On Tuesday I might catch a US Studies Centre panel, Media and the 2020 election, then on Friday there’s another panel, Cybercrime – Is it just old crimes perpetrated online? from the Trans-Tasman Business Circle.

This week is also Australian Cyber Week 2020, though only a couple of events are catching my eye at this stage

On Saturday night it’s the livestreamed special episode of the Edict, “The 9pm Halloween Bad Sex State Election Live” as paid for you you, the generous listeners. Listen in at the9pmedict.com/live or on Spreaker apps (search for The 9pm Edict) from 8pm AEDT.

This livestream is just part of The 9pm End of Spring Series 2020. There will be five episodes with special guests through November–December. And if we hit the second stretch goal I’ll do an end-of-year panel episode.

 Please check out the Pozible campaign now, and please tell your friends.

Further Ahead
