An NZ Government Department is blogging and I had something to do with it!

NZAID was one of the many agencies that had a presence at the talk I did at CID‘s “Thinking Outside The Box” media workshop. I talked about blogging, podcasting, videocasting and wikis among other things.

I can’t help feeling a little responsible for NZAID starting up their new NZAID Field Blog! Amazing! Good on you all over there at NZAID for getting on the bandwagon! And on Blogspot to boot!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but is this the first official New Zealand government department blog?

  1. hmmm I think that the green blog was the first actually:

    wordpress to boot… even better ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Ahh, but that’s not a government department, that’s a political party… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Well done – it may well be the first, but will not be the last. Although also “unofficial” I keep up with the Network of Public Sector Communicators blog too.

    Keep up the GWF.

  4. Could just be the first external public-facing blog! Wouldn’t be the first overall, I’ve seen govt internal blogging and collaborative tools in use.

    I wonder what governance they have around this blog, that would be an interesting policy to read (albeit nerdy, but wonderfully nerdy) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Don’t forget Brett, Charlotte’s birthday party on the 14th April ๐Ÿ™‚ 2.30pm.
