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. The expensive headphones he bought in Sydney three weeks ago have just died. His first reaction is not to randomly spill expletives into his coffee, but to use his iPhone to vent his frustration to his Twitter con- tacts, under the moniker Miramar Mike. "I will also put, 'What should I do?' It's a conversation. I'm reaching out to the people following me." The council predicts hand-held digital devices such as smartphones will rule the world in 2040. They already rule the life of Mr Riversdale, whose company WaveAdept helps businesses adapt - their computing sys- tems to allow staff to work from anywhere - and with anyone.

#WellyTech 2017 Get Together - A Connection Starter

  • Friday, 1st December, 2017, 4:30pm+
  • Venue: tbc, but will hold around 200 ...
  • Cost: $20 / ticket (but wait, there will be ways to get free tickets)

I am hoping that last year's amazing co-hosts are keen to continue to grow the wider community and will be looking to bring in more - reach out and make yourself/them known to me.
  • BizDojo, 
  • ColliderWgtn, 
  • DevAcademy, 
  • Geekzone, 
  • NZ Rise, 
  • Hack Miramar, 
  • Open Data NZ, 
  • and Rails Girls Wellington.
And this year we will have a theme, "Connections" ... 

Remember, there are only around 80-100k ICT workers in the whole of New Zealand. That includes everyone from the CEO's of software companies, CIO's of large Government agencies, the raft of PM and BAs out there to the hard working devs and designers making the computers do what the computers do.

That's not that many for the whole country.
And yet we are all just a little be disconnected ... we can change that!
