Had a pleasant evening last night as the guest speaker at a function by IPANZ for new public sector professionals. I talked on “How to deal with bloggers”.
Was somewhat amused that some of the staff there were ones who had just been responding to my OIA requests. Had an extended discussion with some Stats NZ staff on sampling techniques and errors. Felt sorry for anyone else listening in. Also talked tax modelling with some Treasury people. Was a full geek night!
One of the attendees there said they came along, because they attended the MPs vs media debate and wanted to hear me speak again. They expressed regret that I didn’t use either of the C words I used in that debate. I suspect I’m never going to live that down!Tags: DPF, IPANZ
