If there was a Facebook New Zealand Ltd. registered here then it might make more sense ensuring that there were fewer loopholes for that company to minimize its tax obligations, but the fact is there isn’t. Either major party would be better off encouraging New Zealand to be the head ofﬁce for global corporations, or encourage good New Zealand businesses to become global players, if this was an issue (and I believe that it is). There is this thing called the internet that they may have heard of, but both parties have seen it as the enemy (e.g. the whole furore over s. 92A, ﬁrst proposed by Labour, enacted by National).
Right now, we have some policy and procedural problems preventing us from becoming more effective exporters.
It’s no coincidence that I took an innovation tack in my two mayoral campaigns. If central government was too slow in acting to capture or create these players, then I was going to do it at a local level.
Grumpy Cat Shows Her Disney Side [x]
Grumpy meets Grumpy Tardar Sauce, a.k.a. Grumpy Cat, proves she’s relevant, even in 2013.
Yeahna So, according to Facebook, I am a Francophile diplomatic unionist with kids who enjoys chatting to single women online while listening to Sarah Brightman. The French thing comes from being Francophone, so that much I have told Facebook. However, does it really know that I have friends in the diplomatic corps and unions, or that I like Phantom (though it’s not really at top of the list), or are these just random?
The continuing decline of Facebook Yet another obvious fake on Facebook. You can bet all the “friends” linked to this are fake, too. Since I see these every day, and I’m hardly a major user, then how many others are there? Facebook’s claims of over a milliard users seem more and more dubious by the day.
Yan’s campaign on the other hand is unusual. Unusual in that he declared early, has a very good website, has released a manifesto months out from the election, is (frequently) using almost every social media medium, producing videos, and is actively campaigning, talking to people … If every candidate for local government followed this playbook, regardless of politics, I have no doubt we’d have better people being elected and more people voting.
The beginning of the end of Facebook We’re not the only company to receive this offer for fake Facebook likes. There is no point to these, since these fake accounts are incapable of spreading your word further—since they are not real. I guess this explains why, over the last few months, we’ve been deleting fake Facebook users. The spammers were creating them to exploit.
