That is precisely my point. I am making a comment about New Zealand
culture. If I gave the impression I was expecting a government/arbitary
organisation/aliens from Mars to make my lunch for me, oops.
One New Zealand telco told me in a job interview I was "too enthusiastic
and not a team player." I think that pretty well sums things up.

still has, some way to do to catch up, frankly.
Never said they did. You have missed my point. :-) China has gone from
less than zero to considerably further ahead in terms of infrastructure. I
know, I've been there and built some of it myself. I've been involved in
building some of New Zealand's infrastructure, too.
But, Josh, if you really have a concern it has to be
better directed and
expressed than the comments you make in your post.
I wasn't directing the comments at you or what you/don't represent.
I was saying that as a New Zealander very much involved in this particular
industry, and having worked internationally, I have a perspective that
makes me want to leave in disgust at how far behind New Zealand is.
