    I was impressed by Matt Nippert NZ Herald journalist – investigative reporter? recently and also another journalist being interviewed by Kim Hill tomorrow – should be interesting and people to be recommended.

    Kim Hill
    What’s coming up tomorrow after 9 a.m.
    Two New Zealand journalists doing great things first up on tomorrow’s show – the New Zealand Herald’s Matt Nippert discusses how he discovered US billionaire Peter Thiel was a New Zealand citizen,….
    and Emma Beals tells Kim about being awarded the James Foley Freedom award for her work in helping keep war correspondents safe.

      I have met and talked to Nippert. He’s kind like you might expect an investigative journo to be. A bit scruffy and a bit of a character. Definitely has a mind of his own. And smart.

      His articles, and David Fisher and Simon Collins’ ones are why I don’t totally dismiss the NZ Herald. But their articles tend not to be given the tabloidish space at the top of the home page.

      Grey, do you still want me to put up a post on Sunday introducing the bookclub and the Schumacher book? I will need the copy tonight or in the morning if I am to get it ready for Sunday.

    This was a good idea – let’s all read the same book and have a discussion of our thoughts about it and see if we can find some viable good ideas in this election year! So action is following and the first idea is to read E F Schumacher’s 1973 book, Small is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered. You are all invited to come on the journey and report back on the high points of your travel. Debrief in say a month.

    Why do this? The shared information we get on TS is interesting and gets discussion going and those informed people that share here are soon shown to be gold when we read the rest, the bumf and misinformation that flows around. And further. what is special is the links that are provided so we can background the opinions and quotes that others put up.

    We want to join in this exploration of the thinking of well-known academics producing work that is likely to be beneficial to us all. and the thinking of mature identities bringing their education, skills and experiences to us.

    Hi Weka
    I wondered if this above would be satisfactory for intro to the post. I have been sidetracked by events and only got this far. Suggestions? Put this up for this Sunday saying start next? Myself prepare more and have it ready for later? Sorry, rather awkward things going on here and I haven’t got onto it early enough.

      Good start for the intro grey. I’d like to have a tinker with it (for clarity), and I’m not sure about the negative framing re bumf, but will have another read through later on and come back to you.

      I’m thinking there is the first post with the book named in it, and then a month later we have the discussion post. I would need all the other bits for the first post to go up tomorrow. However if we don’t make the deadline for tomorrow, we can just start the first post next week 🙂
