Mobile Phone and Internet Security. Tuesday, March 27, 7pm, The Rees Hotel Queenstown. We take for granted every day that we are safe from security risks with our ubiquitous mobile phone because we’re protected by standards, statutes and privacy laws. We are mistaken, says ICT professional and former CIA operative Dr Henry Wolfe. How are we being watched? Find out about the risks and how to mitigate them. $5 koha.

April 11 - A first for Queenstown (we think)! Hear from an out-of-this-world, truly astronomical visitor who will share his experiences and insights at this evening talk.
May 16, 7pm, The Rees Hotel Queenstown - AF8 Project science leader Dr Caroline Orchiston brings the latest knowledge on the Alpine Fault that forms the spine of Queenstown Lakes, the impacts a Richter 8 level quake would have on our community, and how we can best prepare - at a personal and political level - for this inevitable happening.
If you enjoy what we do, why not help us out?
