Amy Adams to address NetHui South delegates

26 Oct 2012

InternetNZ has revealed Amy Adams will deliver a ministerial keynote at the upcoming Net Hui South event in Otago.

The Minister for Communications and Information Technology will be joined by Labour MP Clare Curran and Greens MP Gareth Hughes for a diverse line-up of panellists at the event.

InternetNZ CEO Vikram Kumar says the two-day conference will discuss a number of issues regarding online.

“With six roundtable sessions and a number of panels and debates there is something for everyone,” Kumar says.

"Topics under discussion reflect many of the major touch points shaping the Internet today, including cloud computing, ‘big data’, cyber-security, copyright and online behaviours.

"Like a traditional conference, NetHui South has a pre-agreed agenda. However, much like an unconference, people ‘participate’ rather than passively ‘attend’.

"A key feature of NetHui is the roundtable sessions where everyone’s views are encouraged to provide a true community-led conference.

"NetHui South represents multi-stakeholderism in its true form, where everyone’s views are valued and everyone is encouraged to fully participate.

NetHui South will be held over two days from 23 – 24 November at Otago University and Otago Museum.
