In episode 8, we feature an extended interview with Paul James, the government's chief digital officer, and the chief executive officer of Te Tari Taiwhenua Department of Internal Affairs (DIA).

James is the man responsible for coordinating how government departments adopt technology and the work DIA does also has a key impact on how digital services are delivered to citizens and how aspects of the digital realm are regulated in Aotearoa.

Our chat ranged far and wide, spanning the government’s cloud-first strategy, the Christchurch Call, new digital identity legislation and efforts to address gaps in the regulation of online content. 

There’s a lot going on when it comes to tech-related policy across government – tune in to get up to speed on some of the latest developments and what they mean for you.
