I donโ€™t know which I am more amazed by.

\n

That I was half way up a hill looking down on this beach over the weekend and mesmerized by these 4 guys kicking a ball between themselves for close to a couple of hours in pretty intense sun. It was truly amazing - just gentle self control of moving a ball between them - you gotta know that i am no football fan - but they had me.

\n

OR

\n

That being half way up that hill my 5 year old iPhone recorded a video of them - which I then cropped to focus just on the game and it’s ‘just there’.

\n

Who needs a new iPhone? Really.

One observation - nowhere in either of those bios is there a mention of anything to do with ‘RandD’, ‘Innovation’ ‘Tech’ and all the various off shoots and things that those two orgizations are there for. I guess it is clear what the focus is.

Ever since I arrived in NZ I have been amazed by the sheer number of governmental organizations that float around the country ‘doing’ ‘things’. It’s a country of 5 million people. These are the organizations I have identified so far that brave entrepreneurs navigate for help.

\n\n

… not to mention the ‘chambers’ and ‘ema’ and ‘business nz’ and ‘eda’s’ and ‘incubators’ and ‘accelerators’ and … (thankyou Andy)

\n

Here’s the question - as the new administration start implementing their plan - how many closures and/or mergers should we expect?

\n

What do you think?

And is Callaghan and NZTE first?

Back in the day a technological marvel such as this would cost you hundred and hundreds of dollars. (No joking kids). Of course the number of people you could communicate using such a device - back in the day - could be counted in the millions. So $10 does sound like a bargain, except.

\n

Back in the Day - the cost to connection ratio was very, very small.

\n

For example and being conservative and for the sake of round numbers โ€ฆ

\n

Cost : $1000
\nNumber of People You Can Connect To : 10,000,000
\nCost to Connection Ratio : $0.0001

\n

Todayโ€™s numbers โ€ฆ with the same simplicity assumptions;

\n

Cost : $10
\nNumber of People You Can Connect To : 10
\nCost to Connection Ratio : $1

\n

Now THAT is inflation โ€ฆ not to mention that back in the day the Network effect meant that you cut per connection was falling daily., whilst today, growing exponentially.
