My window to the world


The Silicon Welly

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 21-Oct-2006 11:44

A lot of talk is going on about our capital city, Wellington (New Zealand) and its relationship with the technology folks establish here - or moving here.

During the last year I've seen people moving here from other places in the country (Chris Auld, Tim Haines, Nic Wise) or from overseas (Nick Randolph), create new companies and sell it to big corporations (Rod Drury's AfterMail, Sam Morgan's Trademe), run startups in stealth mode (Peter Smith) or write about web technologies.

Write about web technologies? Richard MacManus, the guy behind ReadWriteWeb.com, is based here in the region. And he' posted an interesting short article about Silicon Welly, a nickname for Wellington in this age of high tech development.

Check it out. He even commented about Geekzone 2006.
