About Techblog

TechBlog was created by the IT Professionals to create a home for the latest news, views and other information about Information Technology and the IT industry in New Zealand.

TechBlog is unique because:

  1. It unashamedly focuses only on what's happening within, and of interest to, the IT profession;
  2. It has a professional editor in Bill Bennett, with extensive tech journalism experience;
  3. It is written by IT people, for IT people. TechBlog is collaboratively produced and has many authors from across the tech sector;
  4. As well as editors and regular contributors, it includes very frequent articles and opinions from key leaders in all areas of IT, from government Ministers through to those at the coalface;
  5. It is also sent in a weekly digest form (called Newsline) to many thousands of IT Professionals across New Zealand;
  6. It is operated by the Institute of IT Professionals, New Zealand's independent professional body for those working and studying in IT.

TechBlog is produced by:
