From now on, Patch Monday will be contributed by Stilgherrian, an opinionated and irreverent writer, broadcaster and consultant based in Sydney.
Stilgherrian currently writes about the intersection of technology and politics for Crikey, ZDNet.com.au, New Matilda, his own website and others, and has a history as a radio broadcaster with Radio Adelaide, the ABC and Triple J.
From next week, Patch Monday will be returning to its regular Monday schedule.
In this week's episode, Cyberwar. What is Australia's place in the world of digital warfare? What are the implications for the NBN? Tom Worthington, a computer scientist who's been watching how Australia's defence forces use IT, helps separate the myth from reality.
We also look at the Australia Council's innovative "Geek in Residence" program, helping bring arts organisations into the 21st Century. Applications close 9 December.
