New Zealand is at a very important time regards to the internet; with really important legislature regarding access to the internet being rushed through parliament under urgency while at the same time the prospect of fibre to every home becoming more and more of a reality.
Sure, the people who come to Barcamp don't necessarily run ISPs or build out infrastructure but you are the people who build on top of that infrastructure and you understand the need to protect access to the internet as well as increasing our infrastructure.
For these reasons, Barcamp Auckland 5 will include a panel devoted to the future of NZ's Internet. This session will touch on issues regarding the copyright infringement bill passed in April, the Ultrafast Broadband initiative as well as any other related issues.
