As far as i can tell, there are no New Zealand meet ups. I live in Christchurch and would like to meet some people of similar interests. I am 19 and work at a computer software company. If there is enough interest and some good ideas, post em here and lets get a meet up going.

I'll be back home in December. Mostly visiting family and friends in Wellington, Tauranga & Auckland.

I'm not sure if we have critical mass for a real event yet.

I'd be keen to meet some xkcdites, I guess. I have a car now, and will probably be doing a lot of driving around the country in the near future.

Hey, I live in Chch too! I have an interview with Tait on Tuesday (so I'm not cool enough to call myself a software engineer...yet) Anyway, I was a fan of xkcd BEFORE they started printing it in Canta. I'm an original dammit.

Yay I got the job! Where is Jade? I've been there 3 weeks now and haven't seen it? Is it in the Technology Park or something? My title is officially "Software Technician", which basically means I try to make the build scripts run smoothely and fix the linux boxes when the engineers break them.

Ok. We should meet in Nelson, because it's in the middle. In fact, we should go to Botanical Hill! The center of nz! It's only 20 km from my house!

I'm going to the Big Day Out, and road tripping up from Nelson. If anyone wants to meet up on the way, drop us a line.

If we meet up in the Top of the South I have a few places in mind we could go. Kites in the park etc.

I'm free all next year after February, if I get into this course.
