Weekly Update 221

Well this is different; a weekly update bereft of neon studio lighting and instead done from the great outdoors, complete with all sorts of animal noises and a (probably) drunk green tree frog. I picked one of my favourite travelling companions to join me this week, a little guy I last did one of these with in a very different environment back in Oslo earlier this year. I’ve really been trying to focus my time on family so the Aussie travels dominate this week, but there’s a little tech sprinkled in as well. It’s all pre-recorded this week thanks to bandwidth that’s barely sufficient for a tweet (I had to travel to a nearby town just to get this uploaded!) Next week I expect to have better coverage so circumstances permitting, I’ll go back to the livestream format. For now though, I hope you enjoy this week’s rather different video:

  4. And so did FireEye (that one somewhat more serious given the nature of the organisation and the likely nation state origins of it)
