A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. This week featured a trip to Canberra for the Microsoft Politics and Technology Forum.
- Patch Monday episode 90, “Real issues for cybersecurity awareness”, mostly being an interview with Paul Ducklin, Sophos’ head of technology for Asia-Pacific.
- Iain Dale on politics, Twitter, radio and authenticity, the first “real” edition of my Conversations series. As I asked in that post, should I do more like this?
- Political tweets eclipse blogs, but parties still don’t get it, for Crikey, based on my interview with Iain Dale.
- Conroy’s blueprint for a digital economy … that doesn’t need an NBN, for Crikey, being my cranky commentary on the National Digital Economy Strategy. Also published at Technology Spectator as Forget strategy, Conroy needs a reason.
- I spy 100Mbps, for Technology Spectator, in which I try to destroy the anti-NBN myth that no-one can think of any uses for 100Mbps broadband speeds.
- The Microsoft Politics & Technology Forum probably counts as one of these, but I’ll post links when there are links to link to.
- This doesn’t really count as largesse, because I was actually working on the discussion panel as the Microsoft Politics & Technology Forum, but Microsoft paid for my transport to Canberra, accommodation at the Hyatt Canberra Hotel, and a lovely dinner at Mezzalira Ristorante.
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.
