I will be one of the six speakers for the 6 x 6 part of the next UP (Unlimited Potential) event here in Wellington.

According to the flyer:
 
Unlimited Potential has invited inventors, suppliers and commentators to give us the skinny on what’s up, what’s breaking internationally and in our own back yard.  We also have some local and global vendors to showcase the latest gadgets, games and home media solutions.  You’ll have a great opportunity to view, experience and interact with their latest gadgets.

The 5th July is shaping up to be one whopping great big geeky networking fest and the Unlimited Potential committee is very excited to be bringing some awesome speakers and exhibitors who are passionate about their technology for your networking pleasure.

When: Wednesday 5th July, 2006
Time:  4.30 for 5.30 start
Where: Renoulf Foyer, Wellington Convention Centre


Other speakers on this event are:

Dr Kate McGrath from The McDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology.  Kate will shed some light on what our academics have been up to in the Nanotechnology space around New Zealand.

Jay Templeton from Mabode, in association with Microsoft, is ready to wow us with the latest technologies for working and playing with Digital Media.  We also look forward to Mabode showing off some of the latest Digital Home technology in the exhibition area.

Dan Milward from Instinct Entertainment who create online and mobile phone games is going to talk about their work on teaching Chinese people how to familiarise themselves with English using gaming.  Helping people make connections they may not have in a traditional learning space.

Humphrey Wikeepa is the Manager of Software Development at Te Papa and will be talking about the technology challenges faced in creating Mobile Exhibition Guides using the likes of PDA’s and also discussion other options explored at the International Conference “Museums on the Web 2006” last month.

We are delighted to have David Oliver from The Apple Computer Division of Renaissance Limited back at an UP event to show and tell on what’s hot & new from Apple. The Apple event in June 2005 was a stand-out, so don’t miss the opportunity and they may even let you have a play with their new tools and gadgets.  Apple are also giving away an iPod Nano!
