The internet was conceived on the ideas of equality and access. People sharing and making new things happen.
In the spirit of this, I participated in a panel discussion last Friday at NetHui in Auckland. The topic was government and openness. What it might look like in 2020.
During the discussion I asked my fellow politicians on the panel, Nikki Kaye, National and Gareth Hughes, Green, if we could form a cross parliamentary group to see where we could find some commonalities on the important issues facing us in becoming more open.
They agreed. Our first meeting could be this week. We’ll keep you posted.
