The Future As Seen By Me In 2010

Well looky here, things one has scanned in eh. (ignore the photo, that's some guy that made some accounting software, not sure what became of him ;) MIKE RIVERSDALE is fuming.

Hack Miramar At The OS/OS Conference

On April 16th & 17th here in Wellington the fine folks from Github, Enspiral, Loomio and Chackle have brought together a worldclass set of international, New Zealand and local speakers on the subject of Open Source Open Society.

I will be facilitating a taster workshop for the July GovHackNZ event - think of it has "hackathon 101" with an actual hackathon run in 45 minutes - you'll have to see it to believe it.

These ideas and, hopefully the people behind them, can focus their energies into becomming a team at the GovHackNZ event (either here in Wellington or at any of the NZ-wide locations closer to their home). We look at the GovHackNZ event as the "do-y" to the OS/OS "hui".

So, get your tickets to the OS/OS conference ...

  • When: Thursday 18th & Friday 17th April, 2015
  • Where: Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington
  • How much: $199
