Lots of interesting discussions at NetHui yesterday.
I’d been meaning to write a roundup of the stuff I saw at the second Internet NZ conference but, you know, the best place to catch up with the conference is in the video coverage – which is of a much higher quality than last year.
The livestreams can be viewed here.
There’s even an app.
Better still, in many ways, many of the sessions have been recorded in words – that’s right, words – on collaboratively cobbled together Google Docs coordinated by Nat Torkington. Here’s the copyright session. Here’s the privacy keynote. Here’s the “regulating bad behaviour online” session. Here’s a baby giraffe.
Last night the Fair Deal campaign – “about keeping the Trans Pacific Partnership from changing our copyright laws” – was launched.
For other, more diligent observers’, coverage of the conference, go here.
All going well, I’ll post something later today after the respective leaders of National and Labour, Steven Joyce and David Shearer, address delegates this morning.*
Joyce won mostly grumbles last year for what many considered to be something of a condescending address, so it will be interesting to see whether he wins them over today.
He’ll be giving his speech, just for the record, at the SkyCity convention centre. Anyone for pokies?
*Yes, I know Joyce isn’t, etc.
