Welcome to my corner of the web, where I keep notes on the business of developing software based solutions that collect data and turn it into intuitively actionable information.

IT Sections

The IT section covers the whole process of Application Development, among other topics.

The Glossary is an organised entry point to notes on industry technologies, protocols and products, and business terms one hears.


To take your time going over a presentation I have given, view it again on the Presentations page.


Or simply read the Blogs during my Pomodoro breaks between trying to find solutions to problems under lack of time, budget and your average IT duress.

Michelle said it best…basically:

NZ Government is always looking for short term wins: the election cycle is short, and Ministers have a hard time surviving without a project to unveil. So point solutions generally win over over consolidation projects that integrate information –- at least until there is a catastrophic failure. At which point a minister can swoop in as a launcher, as opposed to a deliver (sounds just as good). But that too has a risk: large projects go through different ministers, different project managers…and needs change…so by the time the Big Thing arrives, it no longer is a solution anyone needs.

In total, Winegard estimates that mosquitoes have killed more people than any other single cause—fifty-two billion of us, nearly half of all humans who have ever lived. He calls them “our apex predator,” “the destroyer of worlds,” and “the ultimate agent of historical change.”
