The most watched among my 2013 mayoral campaign videos: my belief that Wellington needs to be connected globally. I still believe this to be the case.

Welcome to my site.


We’re about to head into 2018 as I write this. We’ve had a year of many uncertainties, which strengthens my resolve to get more important projects off the ground. We’ve passed peak Facebook and peak Twitter, we’re seeing people take charge of their identities, and social networking itself is democratizing. Corporate brands are trying to speak more personally, because some social media have ensured that their voices are no greater than an individual’s. Politicians in some countries are not working in their citizens’ interests, though there are some glimmers of hope in some nations that prosperity can be shared both more freely and more equally, and powerful interests can be held to account. The old saying, ‘Change is the only constant,’ holds truer than ever, which means new ideas have become ever more important—and many will come from a creative dialogue between us all.
   At this site, I will share my ideas when I can, and I look forward to your thoughts.
