A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. I didn’t bother including a photo this week because I didn’t take any interesting photos. Suffer. Besides, it’s a short working week thanks to Easter.
- Patch Monday episode 85, “Geek culture takes over the world”. Triggered by Pia Waugh’s tweet noting that some folks enthuse about social media and online communications without understanding their geek-culture roots, I have a yarn with geeks Nick Hodge and Silvia Pfeiffer.
- Facebook regulation, for ABC Drum Opinion, the new branding for ABC Unleashed. The piece points out the risk to freedom of expression as we move our conversations from public spaces to privately-owned ones, triggered by Facebook’s most recent silliness, deleting a photo of two men kissing.
- Apple’s answer to Android: confidence â€¦ and shiny big numbers, for Crikey, following Apple announcing yet more record earnings for a March quarter but with little in the way of facts about their strategy.
- On Tuesday I was interviewed for Panorama on SYN Radio in Melbourne about Facebook regulation. While the do post some items as podcasts, they haven’t done so yet, so I’ve posted the audio on this website.
- I would’ve also been on ABC News 24’s discussion show The Drum, had I not been in Katoomba for the day and unable to make it to Sydney in time. Geography is not quite dead yet.
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.
