Would submit an earthquake report to @geonet@twitter.com but the "I am not a robot" thing won't work through my privacy filters. Non-intrusive and socially relevant (wtf is a "crosswalk"?) options abound. Use one.

No damage. I thought we'd lose a shelf or two for sure, but nothing.

Wouldn't it be funny if China was responsible for finally killing the Australian fossil fuel industry?

Why is the NZ government giving gratis promotion, on it's own website, to a corporate-owned ?

One thing NZ should definitely be avoiding is adopting US/Silicon Valley-style Venture Capital culture. It's driven purely by profit, it's committed to unhealthy US corporate tech dependence, and creates weak companies destined (at best) for offshore purchase, who contribute little to NZ & seldom produce anything good for humanity or the planet. They invented surveillance capitalism & "first hit's free" loss-leading tech capture to co-opt businesses early.
