New Zealand should be the fairest, most decent society in the world. And we can get there together by focussing on the positive things that really matter to Kiwi families. Labour will put people first. We’ll make sure there are more affordable homes, that there are more secure jobs with higher wages, and that our kids get the best start.

    The government’s changes to ACC levies come into effect this week. Few businesses will notice that in their bottom line though, because the change will be miniscule.

  • KiwiFoo Camp 2015

    I was lucky enough to be invited to join some of New Zealand’s best and brightest technology thinkers as part of the "Kiwi Foo Camp" 2015.

    The private gathering of about 150 people from New Zealand, Australia and the world is a hothouse for innovation. Invitees are doing interesting work in fields such as neuroscience, Internet applications, robotics, drones and sensory technology, psychology, open source programming, art, business, physics, social enterprise and all manner of interesting science and technology.

    But more than anything they represent science and innovation at its best. They are out there doing it – developing ideas, attracting investment and finding innovative ways to market their ideas and collaborate to make them even better.
