Hi Jay, thanks for your concern, I'm ok, It was so scary, and all that has happened. But I am safe, and was already booked on air NZ to go to Auckland the next day, so I'm squatting at my sisters house. no imediate plans to go back, don't want to strain the infrastructure.
Hey Jay, thanks for your encouragement with the science communication! I'm really excited about the possibilities in NZ for building collaborative networks of scientists, artists, business people, designers and environmentalists that work together to develop really creative, fulfilling solutions...There's so much awesome science going on in NZ. I can't wait to start telling some of these stories!
Hello.. sorry for the very belated response to your question. KC was very intersting to say the least, ha. What brings you from Iowa to Wellington? I have a few friends from Des Moines actually.. lots of corn there ;)
Thanks for your note, Jay! I am from Russia, but not new to this country- have been livi ng here before, since I am married to a Kiwi. Together we have been travelling and working in the world for 20 years. NZ is the last destination, at least for this moment.
Hi Jay, thanks for connecting. The Design buss is going very well thanks. I have some decisions to make regarding which way to develop. All will fall into place. How are things going for you so far in 2010? :) cheers Miryam
I reckon Climate Camp will be a really amazing experience. I haven't been to one but I really like the principles and objectives of the Camp. You can join the announcements list and working group mailing lists on the website www.climatecamp.org.nz
There are a couple of newsletters of the website now that give some info of the camp and what's been happening around the country.
The site will only be announced a few days before the camp but I guess some indication of area will be given before then? Not sure about that though. The site will be relatively close to Wellington.
There will be a film screening later this month in Wellies at the Newtown community centre. That should be announced on the announcement mailing list.
