Weekly Wrap 40

A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. Despite succumbing to a random fever for two or three days, I got quite a bit of writing done — and then forgot to post this until Monday. Sigh.


  • Patch Monday episode 79, “Cybercrime convention: civil liberties risk?”. Australia intends to sign on to the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime. My guests? Cybercrime specialist Nigel Phair from the Surete Group, who’s previously been with the Australian High Tech Crime Centre. His second book has just been published, Cybercrime: The Challenge for the Legal Profession. And Electronic Frontiers Australia chair Colin Jacobs.

Most of my day-to-day observations are on my high-volume Twitter stream, and random photos and other observations turn up on my Posterous stream. The photos also appear on Flickr, where I eventually add geolocation data and tags.

  1. My imagined picture of you and your experience in Wentworth Falls pieced together from the twitter tidbits has been a primary cause of discomfort for me, so I hope you go on to describe the horrors, inconveniences and lack of facilities in this remote, godforsaken hell hole, so that I may be rid of this cursed envy! 🙂

  2. @Sylmobile: You must’ve missed my comments the other morning when at 5.20am the solar power system’s battery bank died, leaving me in the dark. Wandering torch in hand some 200m down a dirt track to the shed to fill the generator’s fuel tank and then fire it up — before breakfast! — wasn’t my idea of fun.
