Kiwiflatmates.Com Flatties Not Safe As Houses

Kiwiflatmates.Com Flatties Less Than Safe As Houses

With the recent release of the the www.kiwiflatmates.com site, net enabled New Zealanders have been hurrying to the site to watch the 5 people who have volunteered to have their day to day lives put on the Web. Watch for a price that is! For the most intimate views of those living in the kiwiflat (the bedrooms, bathrooms and spa) are restricted to people willing to fork out $20US/month to see the long distance, grainy video feeds.

Believing the site to be ill thought out, badly executed and far too expensive for an advertising laden site we at "K1w1 W3b" have released a site at www.geocities.com/kiwiflatmates which allows anyone to view the "members only" portions of the site easily and for free. This is thanks to an obvious security flaw in the www.kiwiflatmates.com web site.

We feel this is yet another example of a New Zealand company believing they can cash in on the "Internet Economy" by badly copying a concept from overseas instead of putting time and money into developing original ideas. Sadly this site has received far more media attention and sponsorship backing that its unoriginal, badly executed nature deserves when many more original efforts are being ignored.

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>


Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland
