Unlimited Potential once again brings you the Bloggers PredICTions event from the glittering starlight lounge at the Wellington Chamber. StrICTly tongue-in-cheek this event promises to enrage, enthrall and entertain. See last years players defend the indefensible and this years seers gaze into their murky crystal balls to predict developments on the information technology scene.
A year ago, we asked leading Wellington bloggers to predict the future for 2009. Well, the future is now, so we’re doing it again, first off we’ll see if they got it right.
Once again, Wellington’s top bloggers will gaze into the future and tell us what the big news will be in the next twelve months. The wisdom of their prognostications will astound you—or amuse you, at the least.
The blogger who makes the best predictions—as voted by YOU, the audience—will be crowned UP Visionary of the Year for 2010, and receive an official certificate, a beautiful tiara*, and full bragging rights… at least until 2011, when we will vote again on whether to revoke their title.
New for 2010: we’ll be running a TwitterPoll to help keep the voting as democratic as possible (!!) - make sure you bring your twitter or wifi-enabled-device and keep an eye on the #PredICTions hashtag.
The Case of the Midnight NoteThe Case of the Midnight Note is a project to raise money to help others attend this year’s Webstock conference.
The project includes two major parts: a noir-themed transmedia story and a noir-themed fundraising party. Both of these are a collaboration between a bunch of friends who want students, newcomers, and others without the backing of their employers, to attend the conference. (All proceeds will be gifted to those in need of financial assistance to go towards the cost of a Webstock 2010 registration.)
The noir-themed fundraising party is taking place after Bloggers PredICT on 28 January at a top secret location. There is a $10-$20 koha, and it’s fancy-dress: dress Noir-style: femme-fatale, gangster, mobster, private detective, crooked cop, journalist - whatever takes your fancy. But if you don’t have a costume and still want to join us. Please do!
