There are a few different sources of advice for founders, with the most important ones being end users and paying customers. Below I have put a list of sources of advice in order of importance, just to push the point … Continue reading
I decided to check out with Telecom’s broadband sign-up page to see how the impact of Telecom’s ongoing transformation is affecting end users. Overall things seem much easier to navigate than previously, and the plans are better. But there are … Continue reading
What does Telecom do? For me it’s simple – as a telco (leaving aside Gen-i) it provides reliable internet and voice connectivity. That connectivity is accessed over the air and via copper and fibre, and there is a strong switch … Continue reading
In 2001, while I was living in the USA, I read the book Fast Food Nation, shortly after it was released. I stopped eating meat. The USA’s food system was so broken that the quality of the meat being consumed … Continue reading
This line records use of a certain item by New Zealand population since 2000. Where do you think it will be in say 20 years time? The statistic went up, and then down, and so the best estimate to me … Continue reading

Professor Robert J Shiller won the Nobel prize this year (with Eugene Fama and Lars Peter Hansen) for his work on the analysis of prices of various assets. He repeated his Nobel lecture at the Yale School of Management today, … Continue reading
Last April Auckland Transport received a report they had commissioned on Why do Cyclists run red lights?“ A decommissioning the report was an excellent move by Auckland Transport. Sadly the report is only available as a powerpoint presentation, but what … Continue reading
My partner rides a bicycle to and from work. Her town bike has a basket on the front and back, and she is small, wears normal street clothes and obeys traffic rules. This is what a ride home looks like. … Continue reading
This is a piece received via email from Gloria Williams (@caniwiwilliams) that she has given me permission to post. I read your thoughtful column on cycling safety this morning and I thought I’d send along this photo which shows … Continue reading
Today I arrived very early on the scene of a cycle versus truck fatality in Auckland today. The sight of a person lying motionless in the street with mangled bicycle in the background is chilling enough. The sounds of grief-stricken … Continue reading
I don’t know when, but this is a dreadful picture. The incident happened at Lyttelton Port of Christchurch on Saturday 4th January, 2014. It was a near miss to a fatal injury – the driver is lucky to be … Continue reading
