#comics #technology Techweek21 - Technology and Comics Earlier this year I took part in a webinar as part of Techweek Northland conducted through Creative Northland with Olivia Garelja and assists from Jason Read helping with set-up and support, and Tech Support from Vaanipriya Diwan who recorded the event via satellite from another city where she was attending another event. It was an interesting looking over the previous decades of the way that comics have been delivered to the reader via various avenues with the changes to new technology.

14th August 2021

We would like to thank all those who backed our Plunge Enterprises NZ Kickstarter for our Incredi-Girl #1 comic book.

We have decided to cancel this project for the time being and restart with a new artist on the interior pages.

I understand this might seem strange since we put so much effort in promoting the book.

But, I am okay doing this knowing that when we put out the new #1 with new artwork I will be able to proudly stand behind.

We are excited to announce that a new #1 script has been written which will have a new artist and an editor involved as well. Work will begin on the project starting September.

This will be the fourth year that Creative Northland has officiated the national event for our area in Whangarei and Northland.​Techweek History:“In 2012, technology industry association NZTech began a Tech Innovation Week to coincide with the Hi-Tech Awards, to build enthusiasm around new technologies being developed in New Zealand.

In 2018, the festival continued to build momentum with 540 events running across the country. 2021 will be the fifth iteration of the nationwide festival.The intention behind Techweek is simple. New Zealand’s technology and innovation sectors are growing rapidly, and Techweek fosters that growth by providing the national ecosystem with a week-long opportunity for connection and cross-pollination, using an independent platform to amplify New Zealand’s unique and inspiring innovation stories to the world.In the years to come,

 

Techweek’s vision is for New Zealand to be globally recognised as a beautiful country where world-leading solutions are born. It’s not just about showcasing leading edge technology, but amplifying brilliant ideas that are solving the biggest global challenges – innovation that’s good for the world.
