NetHui

June 16th, 2011 at 12:00 pm by David Farrar

A final reminder about the NetHui 2011 from 29 June to 1 July.

The programme is here. I’m gutted I will be missing it as I will be overseas.

Three Ministers are participating – Deputy PM Bill English, ICT Minister Steven Joyce and Attorney-General Chris Finlayson. Also MPs David Cunliffe, Clare Curran and Gareth Hughes are on panel discussions.

Lawrence Lessig is the key speaker on the third day, which is MC’d by Sean Plunket. The panels are on digitial citizenship, the Internet and the law, Open Government and Access & Diversity.

The first two days have four work-stream running through them, with a huge diversity of sessions and topics.

    My greatest hope for the NetHui is that it doesn’t do too much damage. Seems if you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail, and when officials think about something, they think about how to regulate it, subsidise it, or ban it.

    No thanks, bureaucrats.

    Also interesting will be the Auckland Innovation and Technology Summit hosted by the NZCS on the Thursday night, at the University of Auckland Business School: http://www.nzcs.org.nz/events/auckland/444-Auckland_Innovation_and_Technology_Summit

    What on earth could Gareth Hughes have to say that anybody would want to hear?

    @big bruv: You mean considering he was the only person who made anywhere close to sane comments during the reading of the copyright amendment act?
