Welcome to nerd nite wellington: the first (and until recently, only!) Southern Hemisphere version of the rapidly-becoming-global geekery that is nerd nite.
I’m @teh_aimee, otherwise known as aimee whitcroft, and I’ll be your host for all manner of nerdery and beer. So far we’ve had fourteen brilliant events. At which more of you keep rocking up! More about them can be found on their respective pages.
UPDATE: The prezis from the talks are available here.
Pics from our recent tour out to see the Terawhiti Station wind farm, and the New Zealand fur seal colony at Tongue Point, now available!

Get hold of us! Stalk us! Suggest speakers/topics! We have both a facebook page (with event pages for each event) and, obviously, a Twitter feed.
ALSO, and as always, massive props to my crew @dene, and previously also @chelfyn and @kellective, for all their technical help with making things work…
