Writings on technology and society from Wellington, New Zealand

I’m back

After a break in Europe, then a few days in Abel Tasman National Park to re-connect with summer.

I saw a lot of interesting things:

  • Free Wi-Fi is becoming the norm in UK Hotels, it would seem. I wonder when that will happen here?
  • Proximity cards make such good ski lift tickets. All you have to do is wave your arm the turnstile and it lets you through. It would be great to see that here, as well.
  • The tube is still hell on wheels. I’m glad I live somewhere where mass rapid transport is unnecessary.
  • It’s fashionable in the UK to complain about the BBC. Please, please, please can I have a feed of it here?
  • Bletchley Park, which I posted about at the time, was just about holy ground.

All in all, I’m convinced that New Zealand is a wonderful place to live.
