Colin MacDonald
Government CIO and Chief Executive, DIA

Nethui provides the opportunity for a wide group of people to discuss a range of complex issues in an open forum.  I would like to see this grow on last year’s success.


Karaitiana Taiuru

Net Hui gives anyone the opportunity to be heard and to interact with decision makers to gain new ideas and direction.

Marie Shroff
Privacy Commissioner

It is hard to imagine a life now that is not online. Information is the currency of the online world and personal information is the most valuable part.  NetHui is an opportunity for us all to focus our minds on where we are at and where we might go.


Richard Orzecki
Chairman of Māori Internet Society

NetHui 2011 was a tremendous success for InternetNZ and all those who attended or watched proceedings via the internet. NetHui 2012 will build on the learnings from last year and reach out to meny more in the community to participate and engage and learn. Nau mai, Haere Mai, Whakatau mai! Register early and don’t miss out.

Sue Chetwin
Chief Executive, Consumer NZ

The Internet has changed the way we conduct our lives – from buying and selling, to keeping up with the world and our friends. The Internet has brought huge social and economic benefits. NetHui 2012 will be a chance to discuss those, and importantly the responsibilities that go along with them.

Sixteen years ago John Perry Barlow described cyberspace as the new home of the mind, and told Governments they had no sovereignty there. More recently Kim Dotcom proved Barlow wrong.  It’s timely for local denizens of cyberspace to meet and discuss how best to harness the opportunities the internet delivers.

Judge David Harvey
District Court Judge

Last year’s Nethui was a brilliant conference. This year let the dialogue
continue and may this Conference be even better than the last.
