It is a long way from New Hampshire to New Zealand, where I’ll be speaking at the GOVIS conference in Wellington on Friday. A really long way, it’s dawning on me, as I prepare to leave on Monday afternoon in order to arrive (just past the International Date Line) on Wednesday afternoon. But hey, it’s doable thanks to 747s and laptop computers and MP3 players. Imagine making that trip 100 years ago!
I’ve always wanted to see New Zealand, so I’ll be taking some time to look around after the conference. If topics emerge that fit the themes of this blog, and if network access permits, I’ll blog them. Otherwise it’s likely to be quiet here for a while.
