Once more...
Sorry... following a night of email outages and numerous other problems -- priorities have slipped again!

Which reminds me -- I'm always interested in receiving "guest commentaries" from interested parties.

If you think you've got something to say which may be of interest and value to Aardvark's audience, please send it to me ASAP. No money involved but you'll likely become famous beyond your wildest dreams -- or something.

Before I get back to what I should be doing this a.m., here's a quote from John Sculley (ex CEO of Apple, Pepsi, etc), someone who knows a lot about hi-tech companies and how to foster the kind of environment that sees them start and grow:

"It looks like there is tactical talent in New Zealand. But you do not have tax incentives that others do."

This is a sentiment that I, and many of others have been echoing for nearly a year now. Isn't it a shame that our Prime Minister is too busy hunting witches at TVNZ to actually care about the future economic wellbeing of this country by responding to such an overwhelming and consistent call for action on this front.

I will endeavour to get an editorial out later today but in the meantime enjoy the headlines (again)...

As always, your comments are gladly received.
