Event Sponsor Announced!

Event Sponsor Announced!

The coolest little capital in the world will be hosting TEDx in December.

We are happy to announce that local web design and development agency, 3months has signed up to be an Event Sponsor. Mark Pascall, Founder & Managing Director of 3months says:

“After 12 years of working in the Wellington market, 3months are delighted to support such an awesome showcase event for our city.”

TEDx events are independently organised events licensed by TED. TEDxTeAro is a real opportunity to get Wellington on the global innovation map. License holder and organiser DK has this to say:

"What wonderful support we've received from the local community here in Wellington since we've announced the event. The approaches from many organisations and businesses to sponsor TEDxTeAro has given us a tough but welcome challenge. Partnering with 3months is such an obvious fit and we look forward to the value they will add to this great day."


TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a nonprofit devoted to “ideas worth spreading”, holding events where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Their talks are then made freely available online.

100 tickets will be made available for TEDxTeAro on the 15th November at $80 a ticket, but the event will also be streamed live to the web and the Facebook page.

TEDxTeAro will be held at TePapa on the 1st December.

To stay up with the play as information is released, sign up to the newsletter, join the facebook page, or follow @tedxtearo on twitter.

Find out more at the TEDxTeAro Website.

Gordon Campbell: On Government Arrogance

Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament. This legislation will grant the SIS the power to carry out 48 hour bouts of surveillance on anyone without a warrant, and will bestow on government the power to unilaterally revoke anyone’s passports and thus deny them the freedom to travel.

Ludicrously, the public has been given exactly one day to make submissions on these major infringements of their civil liberties. Despite Finlayson’s misleading signals on RNZ that these are only stopgaps until next year’s full review of our security laws, the measures in question will not, in fact, expire until 2018.

Why the insane rush? Good question. More>>
