Weekly Wrap 572: A vast flock of cockatoos heralds a week when productivity returns

My productivity started to return during the week of Monday 10 to Sunday 16 May 2021. Yes, there’s a ZDNet story and parts or another one, but more importantly I started to get a clearer view of the next few months. This pleases me.

Neither of these things.


If you find these links useful please let me know. They don’t take long to compile, but I’m always looking for ways to save time.

The Week Ahead

On Monday I’m finishing a story for ZDNet, then at 3pm I’m recording the next episode of The 9pm Edict podcast with author John Birmingham, who of course has been on the pod thrice before in July 2018September 2020, and November 2020.

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

On Thursday night it’s another episode of The 8pm Quiz, with the livestream kicking off at 8pm AEST.
