Weekly Update 132

From last week’s update in Seattle to home to Sydney to back home and a late update (again). But regardless, I’m committed to continuing the cadence of doing these updates each week and 132 of them in, I’m yet to miss a week.

This week it’s a combination of more of the same (travel, events and data breaches), as well as more thoughts on the future of HIBP and Cloudflare’s role when it comes to nasty content online. That last one in particular is a really tricky discussion and it’s one that tends to come back to the surface after events that cause us to reflect on the nature of online speech that whilst legal, we all (well, almost all) just don’t want being online. I’m not sure exactly what the answer is that allows us to have both the freedoms and safety we want, but I do think that acknowledging the issues on both sides of that debate is important. All that and more this week, next week will be another update from home and with any luck, one that puts be back on the usual Friday schedule.
