    Teaching and research in information technology (IT) is always a reflection of the ever changing landscape of change and continuous innovation. IT programmes also show how content evolves over time, and the emphasis shifts. The current 'digital forensics' buzz-word is not different from the former programming, applications, security, eBusiness and other ubiquitous buzz-words of the past; in fact digital forensics has swept up many of the curriculum remnants of the last decade into a market driven package of law, professionalism and IT technicality.

  • Reinventing muckraking [Editorial]

    Journalists need to be highly committed and determined when pursuing an issue in an investigative way because they inevitably will be confronted with considerable pressures. These pressures include resistance from publishers and editors due to time and resource constraints, threats from those under scrutiny and legal and contractual complications after publication or broadcast. Investigative journalists, particularly in New Zealand and the Pacific, where investigative journalism is in decline, risk being isolated when attempting vigorous Fourth Estate-styled reportage.

    A review of the second edition of the book 'Dateline Earth: Journalism as if the Planet Mattered' by Kunda Dixit is presented. Dixit argues that his provocatively titled book encourages global journalists to be 'more attached' to the story on conflict, environment, development, poverty, deprivation or disaster. The reviewer suggests that the book was an inspiring, daunting and prophetic, insight into global journalism.

  • Testimony to a paradise exposed [Book review]

    Twenty-one years ago, I wrote a book about indigenous independence and nationalist struggles in the South Pacific. The British publishers wanted a “paradise lost” cover of a beach fringed with coconut palms. It was the opposite of the book’s intended message. The publishers reluctantly changed the design before printing, coming up with an insipid flag cover to better reflect the title, Blood on Their Banner. It was, however, the wrong flag—depicting the ensign of Vanuatu instead of the Kanak banner portraying the sacrifice that inspired the title.

Ka whai mai a Hohepa Williams, kātahi ka tū atu ai a Te Wharehuia me tana poroporoaki e whai ake nei.
