Happy Poetry Day! In Your Eyes

In your eyes
I see a light producing laughter
In your eyes
I see the world in a haze

Your eyes - go deep within me
Your eyes - touch my heart!

In your eyes
the lights shines brightly
In your eyes
The words are left unsaid

Kiwi Advanced Research & Education Network

A week of geeks, digerati and inspiring presentations and ideas for collaboration across the global network that is KAREN. Only recently 'lit up' in New Zealand we finally have an uber fast pipe for the research and education community to partner with international researchers on projects relevant to our own research and education contexts.

It's an exciting time but needs a great communication strategy so that people out there know what it is, what it can and can't do and how to really make it work for individuals, projects and organisations across New Zealand.

The first challenge is to engage and 'show up' on the KAREN network and to start talking about it outside the IT world....

Work locally and globally with the KAREN network.

Some very cool stuff happening on the horizon..
