No, that was just a (lame) joke about frequencies --> oscillation --> changing my mind a lot.

Membership; I believe some form of Koha is necessary. InternetNZ offers grants to conferences, and the annual membership fee is low, so I'd have to see research that says the price is a barrier. Compared to global ISOC standard membership is low. I'll aim to grow membership potential by shifting from active work to informative engagement. Are you a member, what do you think?

 

Digital Divide; I support the work computers is homes is doing. Covering the broadband connection and putting a PC in the living room is working. A tablet gets easily lost or destroyed.

 

IOT; There is some good work going on in this space at the moment. There are two national deployments, and the industry is forming a working group at the moment. I think it's important to advance the use of IoT in local government to solve public infrastructure issues and for public safety and we should proactively shift legacy 2G SCADA connections to IoT to free up that radio frequency.

 

Frequency management; We need spectrum for drones and 5G, and it would be nice if the regional wireless ISP's got their due recognition for building out the rural broadband capability in the regions.

No, I'm not a member any more.  There was a time that I couldn't find $21 for membership.  I don't think there should be a fee for New Zealanders.  It seemed silly of me to hold this view while also paying the fee.  That just suggests a lack of commitment to my view.  So I stopped paying.

 

I think I have 50 domains at present.  So that's $500 + per year to INZ, most of which are my own personal project domains.

 

I still have friends who might be involved, but just don't justify the cost.  The issue, as I see it, is that Geekzone also wants $25, and someone else does too... and then it adds up.  Where do you stop?

 

 

 

If you read the mail archive you'll see my views are fairly well documented on this issue.

Interesting perception.  I'd like to see the current numbers.  Talking with people in my area, they didn't agree with your POV at all.

 

Personally I don't agree with you.  You wouldn't get my vote on this issue.... but that's not to say 'you're wrong' just that I don't happen to agree :)

Someone mentioned the Internet Party above - were you (OP) or are you associated with this?

@mike - laughing have you ever been to a NetHui?

 

@howdystranger
The process to reach this point has been extensive and consultative. I agree that the governance is onerous and the operational aspects of the group can be more efficient. Without this change, there is the risk as DNS revenue is declining. It's also why I want to get involved, as I can bring new expertise to the board; my area of expertise is monetization.

Funding is such a hard and complex question isn't it.

 

 

 

Should the government simply be funding a policy group like this eventually?

 

 

 

.nz and .kiwi are already competitors and this seems to cause enough noise.  I've been following PAG posts recently which read more like 'competitive issue' threads than real policy issue threads.

 

 

 

How do you see INZ might raise revenue without actually being in competition with the community, which then adds obvious bias to its position?

Tim I've seen this issue come up in the past.  Why do we, should we actually care?

 

 

 

Can you please explain why any of us should care about this?  I'm not saying we should, or shouldn't, I actually have no idea why I should give a hoot at all.

 

 

 

INZ's agenda is very clear, as is IP's.  I don't see any conflict.

@TimA - I have a Kim Dotcom selfie, it was Vikram Kumar whom I respected. The concepts about crowdsourcing policy and their sign-up process I liked and I've spoken with a few politicians about how the Internet Party became accessible to underrepresented youth voters, I think Chlöe Swarbrick is doing a good job of addressing that issue now, but we have a long way to go.

At the time i was one of those youths that respected the IP and liked their views, Was wondering if the OP stemmed from that or had any relations to the party at the time out of curiosity.

Also have a photo with KDC, Interesting bloke... Didnt seem to be able to answer questions about his policies in any detail, And boy he was trying. Didn't have any regard for him or the IP from that day forward.

Short answer for me is that in my opinion, the Internet Party showed incredibly bad judgement in collaborating with Kim Dotcom and the Mana party.  I would therefore have reservations about the judgement of anyone who was in a leadership position of the IP at that time.
