Behold: Lightning Lab GovTech

Lightning Lab GovTech is now a thing - and it's poised to help innovative folks create digital solutions for “better, faster and stronger” government.

The future can be an anxiety-inducing prospect, particularly when it comes to figuring out what the world will look like in 50 years’ time. But an event coming up in Wellington called Optimistic Futures plans to explore just that, in an optimistic, no doomsday, apocalypses kind of way, in order to see how the government can help shape the future of New Zealand.

Digital heritage

A heritage-listed building in downtown Wellington has been reconstructed for the digital age – fitting when you consider that the company that has just made it its new HQ is none other than Xero.
