Who is Colin Jackson?

Colin JacksonHello! I’m Colin Jackson, an independent technology consultant and writer in Wellington, New Zealand.

I have over twenty years’ private and public sector experience as a technologist, covering IT policy, the Internet, IT strategy, project management and IT security. I also explain technology and the policy issues around it for a general audience.

In 1995 I set up the first ever New Zealand government web server. Since then, I have been at the forefront of the Internet and e-government in New Zealand.

In 1996 I co-founded InternetNZ, a voluntary body dedicated to preserving an open and uncapturable Internet in New Zealand. From July 2005 until July 2007 I was its elected president.

Since December 2006 I have been the weekly technology contributor for Radio New Zealand National’s Nine to Noon programme.

I’d love to talk to you about your technology and communications needs. In particular, I do:

  • reviews of IT systems and projects
  • IT policy
  • IT and ICT futures
  • Communications about IT issues
  • IT security
  • IT strategy
