NZers are, by international standards, very active in online content

creation, one of the facets of Web 2.0. This will only increase as convergence makes interactive internet engagement ubiquitous. How does your party believe NZ

should capitalise on our leading position in regard to creative engagement

with the internet?

With the convergence of telecommunication and information technologies and the next round of convergence known as Web 3.0, ever more aspects of life will become integrated with and through the information superhighway. How does your party think New Zealand can ensure that this comprehensive convergence of technologies has a positive impact on our society? What are the opportunities? What are the threats?

Great debate guys....

You talk about the levels of regulation on broadcasters and content... can you comment about your plans/ideas to encourage kiwis to generate content for broadcast over the internet and ideas for getting this onto mainstream media?

Could RNZ or similar perhaps provide a platform for kiwi generated podcasts to get the content out via this medium?
