Moxie Podcast 10 (on immigration) out now!

This is the podcast from the tenth Moxie session, held 18 November 2013 in Auckland, New Zealand.

The topic is Immigration

‘Because not all the smart people work for you’, famously said Bill Joy, a co-founder of Sun Microsystems when asked why Sun was looking to collaborate with people outside the organisation on a software project. How good is New Zealand’s immigration system, and do we have the settings right to take advantage of all the folks that we want down under who weren’t born here?

Speakers:

* Carl Andrews on how the system works
* Trevor Gamon was scheduled to speak regarding his perspectives as a user but  unfortunately was unable to attend.
* Dr Sean Simpson with a radical idea to improve things.
