About

This blog was created by and continues to be maintained by Tracey M Benson to encourage discussion about media, social issues and notions of digital culture. Your observations, comments and critiques are most welcome.

Mediakult was originally hosted on blogspot.com as a teaching resource. It was initially created for CNMA (Centre for New Media Arts) media cultures students at the Australian National University to promote discussion about contemporary media arts, media cultures and other interesting stuff.

Open Source software, social inclusion, web accessibility, flexible interface design, Gov2.0Β and geomapping are just some of research interests explored on this blog.

Hello Tracey sat on your table at Gov2.0 presentation by Alison Michalk. You can find me on the twitter @brucebits. Could you send me your email. I have been looking at your social media footprint to get a feel for you interests and think we probably have a bunch in common. My thing at the moment is content strategy. Anyways hope to hear from you soon.

Tracey,
I have been collecting material on my family for about 8-10 years. There are many links to New Zealand and Australia. I have wanted to write them up but am still adding to the details and checking them so I can be accurate and can acknowledge sources. The trouble is that I am such a perfectionist that I will probably die before I go ahead and publish. Perhaps if I had a talk to give or an article to publish, it would get me started. I have gold diggers, pub owners, flour millers, illegitimate lines, evangelists, blackbirding consorters, coroners, asylum inmates, a half Maori line etc etc. The New Zealand one is riddled with murder and mayhem.
Where do I start? I have about 8 A4 folders of paperwork!
Pity I couldn’t visit you and collaborate….

Wow Candia – that is amazing!!

Maybe you don’t have to visit me – do you live in New Zealand? We are visiting next January for an artist residency in New Plymouth.

Perhaps the way to approach this story is to just take a little snippet at a time, instead for trying to cover it all…

Sounds like you have many, may stories to tell.

Best regards
Tracey

No, Tracey, I am in the UK. Most of these emigrants came from Scotland.
I will do it little by little- eventually!
