During the Convergence Oceania 2007 (more on this later) I had a chat with folks at the InternetNZ (Internet Society of New Zealand) and decided to join.

This is the basics:

InternetNZ, the Internet Society of New Zealand is a non-profit, non-governmental society formed to support and encourage the coordinated and cooperative growth of the Internet in New Zealand. Its individual and organisational members share a vision of an open and accessible network that benefits the wider community. The membership works with a variety of technologies to foster the development of the Internet and related aspects of a maturing information society in New Zealand.

Objectives:
  • To promote easily available access to the Internet for New Zealanders including fibre to every home.
  • To develop, maintain and disseminate standards for the Internet and its associated technologies and applications.
  • To develop effective administrative processes for the operation of the Internet in New Zealand.
  • To promote education and conduct research related to the Internet.
  • To represent the common interests of the wider NZ Internet community.
  • To support continued competitive provision of access to the Internet.


  • Let's see how this goes.
