I’m an avid Radio New Zealand National Radio listener, and recently have started tuning in to watch Oliver Drivers great new digital TV channel ALT TV. Both are great commentaries on what’s going on in New Zealand society, and the wider world.
Helen & Chelfyn Baxter are actively involved in sharing techno goodness on both media channels (Virtual World on Afternoons with Jim Mora, producing & hosting ‘the g33k show‘ coming to ALT TV), and run MohawkMedia.co.nz, highlighting good design, trends in social media, online collaboration, and music, to name a few. They have a combined 30 years experience in TV, Radio, and Online media, so certainly have proven they keep up with the play on what’s hot, what’s new, and what’s going down!!
So it’s a great compliment to us all here to be named by them as their “Site of the Week” this week, both on their Radio NZ Virtual World show, and on their own site.
You can hear the show online for a while at http://www.radionz.co.nz/__data/assets/audio_item/0015/1523004/aft-20080521-1510-Virtual_World-wmbr.asx or download it at http://podcast.radionz.co.nz/aft/aft-20080521-1510-Virtual_World-048.mp3 (The “Site of the week” is the 2 minutes from 20:29 through to 22:28).
We started Hire Things for all sorts of reasons… but a core part of that is people working together, using things, to make great events and projects happen, without having to own everything. We think encouraging people to hire instead of buying everything is just part of our contribution to a more sustainable world :-)
We’re a small team with big plans, so getting noticed and commented on by bloggers and media all helps us keep moving forward bit by bit.
Thanks, and welcome to listeners and readers :-)
Peter & the team
