Stokes recognised by InternetNZ

Fellowship follows outstanding contribution to the development of the Internet in New Zealand or the Society

InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) has announced the official results of this year's InternetNZ Council elections and the appointment of a new InternetNZ Fellow.

The election results were announced at InternetNZ’s Annual General Meeting. There were eight nominations for four vacancies on Council. Results were independently scrutinised by a Justice of the Peace.

Amber Craig and Richard Wood were elected as councillors. Lance Wiggs and Neil James were re-elected as councillors. Each will serve a three-year term on Council.

InternetNZ President, Frank March, said, in a statement, that an excellent group of people were nominated this year, and congratulated the successful candidates.

The AGM also saw a new InternetNZ Fellow appointed – Don Stokes.

InternetNZ Fellowships recognise members of the Internet industry who have made an outstanding contribution to the development of the Internet in New Zealand or the Society.

March said Stokes had been involved with the Internet in New Zealand since it first appeared, making largely unseen and highly technical contributions to its security and stability.

In the early 1990s, he helped set up the network infrastructure for the national Universities network and has since been involved in many large scale technical architecture deployments.

Stokes has been associated with InternetNZ since its inception, providing considerable input on policy and technical matters, most notably through his membership of the Hine Commission, which gave rise the .nz Shared Registry System.

Over the last 10 years Stokes has been active in the technical networking community. His contributions have included implementing DNS infrastructure for .nz Registry Services for New Zealand’s Top Level Domain operations.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
