For those of you who have clicked into the various ads for NetHui that we’ve been running as freebies, and registered. Just a reminder* that it starts tomorrow in Auckland and runs until Friday. Russell Brown wrote about it earlier today – so read that if you want more information.
As he points out there are far more of us techies there than the creative arts people.
I don’t think NetHui has entirely met its promise of inclusiveness – the creative community is all but absent, and it’s fair to say that most delegates will agree on most things – but there will be much to see and hear at Sky City in Auckland from tomorrow till Friday.
But it has sold out, so you creative bods can’t get over there to even up the balance. I’ll also bet that it is highly representative of younger (than me) white male middle class geeks. There are some associated events that you may be able to get into…
I’ll be heading along for some sessions and to add my aged gravitas to shore up the age imbalance. However not for the whole of it. As usual I have rather too much work to do to dedicate days of time to a talk-talk fest. But I can probably code and listen at the same time.
Of course their otherwise great website appears to lack the one crucial bit of information of interest. Whats the the bloody WiFi like?
* I’d forgotten myself until my extended memory bleeped and told me that I should be aware that it was on.
