About Techblog

TechBlog was created by IT Professionals NZ to create a home for the latest news, views and other information about tech 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 Paul Brislen and professional journo in Sarah Putt, both with extensive tech journalism experience.
  3. It is written by tech people, for tech people. TechBlog is collaboratively produced and has many authors from across the tech sector.
  4. As well as editors and regular contributors, it includes 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 IT Professionals NZ, New Zealand's independent professional body for those working and studying in IT.
