Weekly Wrap 632: Two podcasts and some actual productivity

During my week of Monday 4 to Sunday 10 July 2022, I made up for my lack of productivity last week. Two podcasts were extruded from the creativity tube, and I made some good progress on planning some things for the coming weeks.


The 9pm Edict is supported by the generosity of its listeners. Do feel free to contribute to my upkeep.



  • The photos in the Waratah sequence 2021 now span 313 days. I skipped a few days to avoid the rain, but progress has continued to be slow so that’s OK.

From the Archive

As I mentioned last week, this month I’m tweeting daily links to things from my archives with the hashtag #StilArchive2022 and collecting them on the web. This week I’ve chosen:

Media Appearances, Videos, Corporate Largesse

None of these. You can read my previous writing at Authory, where you can also subscribe to an email compilation of any new stories each Sunday morning. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to be notified when new videos appear.


The Week Ahead

This week I’m continuing the SEKRIT geek-work and editorial consulting that I haven’t been telling you much about. This will continue for at least several more months, so I won’t tell you about it again unless something significant happens.

Bond on Tuesday continues this week with Live and Let Die (1973) starring Roger Moore for the first time. Find a stream and get ready at 8.30pm AEST. We press PLAY at 8.40pm.

On Wednesday I’m heading down to Sydney for various reasons including a long lunch and some consulting work.

I’ll stay on until Thursday afternoon, when I’m recording an episode of the Edict with satirist Mark Humphries, who of course has been on the pod before. If you’re a supporter who wants to cash in TRIGGER WORDS or a CONVERSATION TOPIC for this episode, please let me know by midday AEST this Thursday 14 July.

On Friday I’ll be editing and posting that podcast, and then it’s the weekend.

Further Ahead

  • Opening of Parliament, Canberra, 26 July 2022. I’ll be watching online. And here’s the proposed parliament sitting calendar (PDF) for the rest of 2022.
  • TechLeaders Forum 2022, Leura NSW, 20–22 August 2022. After a hiatus during the Quarantimes, this once-annual gathering for tech journalists is returning for 2022. Its purpose is for industry PR people to meet the journos who cover their clients.
  • APNIC 54, Singapore and online, 13–15 September 2022. I daresay I won’t be travelling physically to Singapore, but we’ll see.
  • NetThing: Australia’s Internet Community Forum, online, 27–28 October 2022 (TBC).
