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.

It's Never A Big Week At The Office When You Work With Great People

And what made it fun was the people.
He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata!
The people, the people, the people!

A shoutout is required - Raj, my Access Granted co-founder, awesome guy, and all round oil on water. Together with Jono we made a glorious travelling TV crew :) And with Techweek's Courteney wrangling the guests and making Techweek TV all happen in the background WE DID IT!

As soon as we had finished Friday's Techweek TV I rushed off to ActInSpace, the New Zealand wing of the inaugural international series of events, for which I was the Event Producer. What does that mean really when you have a team of people such as Kelsi, Christel, Emma, Kim, and many others on the day/night - awesome each and everyone one of them.

It's making things with people that are passionate about what they do, working around issues without dramas, and having fun on the way - it's what it's all about.

I'd love to work with you.
