Weekly Wrap 613: Recording a podcast while La Niña has her way with the entire east coast

The week of Monday 21 to Sunday 27 February 2022 was a week of rain. La Niña owns us now, and she made is bail about 300 litres of water out of a storeroom, maybe more. Still, I got a podcast done, and sorted out a lot of things behind the scenes.

I won’t complain, though, because Brisbane and much of the surrounding area is flooding.

The Week Ahead

The big item this week is the APRICOT 2022 / APNIC 53 conference, which runs Monday through Thursday in the afternoons and early evenings Australian time. The livestream will be running in the background while I do other things.

Apart from that, I’ll continue the SEKRIT geek-work that I’m slowly plodding through, and slot in some writing for ZDNet. I’ll also map out the podcast plans for autumn. How will this all fit together? I’ll figure it out day by day.

I’ll finally edit and post that podcast with Justin Warren on Friday or Saturday, and that will wrap up the summer series of The 9pm Edict.

[Update 2 March 2022: I launched the next Pozible campaign at 8pm AEDT on Tuesday. Scott Morrison speaking at the Lowy Institute has been moved to next week.]

Further Ahead
