The New Zealand Network Operators' Group
The New Zealand Network Operators' Group (NZNOG) has no king,
president or formal membership. At present it consists of the
subscribers to this mailing list, which anyone is free to join.
This posting, or one like it, is sent to all subscribers each month,
except those who work for the Ministry for Economic Development.
Work is now under way towards a conference and social gathering to
be held in Auckland on 11 and 12 July 2002. Abstracts are sought
_this week_ from prospective speakers, with the aim that a draft
programme will appear not later than 8 May. If you wish to add your
name as a possible presenter, please email
nznog2002(a)deanpemberton.com without delay.
If you wish to act a sponsor and have not already discussed this
either with me or the Convenor, please contact me at this email
address. My thanks to 2Day Internet Ltd, Cisco and Juniper.
