History

Making IT Invisible

We shouldn't have to think about the how but concentrate on the why and what we want IT to do for us.

I am so passionate about it that I co-founded WaveAdept, a New Zealand-based company with the stated aim of "making IT invisible". WaveAdept was a leading, authorised Google Enterprise partner and we merged with Cloud Sherpas (who were subsequently acquired by Accenture).

By co-founding and subsequently driving Hack Miramar I bring technical people (our lovely geeks) and non-techies together further increasing the understanding between the parties and breaking down boundaries that can often lead to misunderstanding and even contempt.

My favourite tools are hackathons, barcamps/unconferences, open collaboration and speaking truth to power at all times. And being a fan of people.

The Internet and me

Because I am such an evangelist of the Internet and it's power to transform people and companies I am also active in keeping the Internet/Web open for all and especially opening up NZ Government use of the web to deliver information and services. For the latest follow @MiramarMike on Twitter

The rest of me

But what about the silly side, the rugby, the music - all catered for on my scatalogical blog and at the many events you'll find me.
