  • Jeremy Andrew,

    Looking for a nice positive option, I nominate 2017 as the year of the Space Maori.
    Can anyone here come up with a Te Reo translation of Space Maori?

  • Jeremy Andrew,

    Or if you're looking for a craze that's coming to a head, Bitcoin. Or more nerdily, Blockchain.

    Actually thinking about it the hashtag that has had the most affect has really been the #metoo movement

    One feature of Jacindamania I’ve had difficulty evaluating with regards to Ardern’s initial criticisms of Turei and the subsequent boycott is the extent to which Jacindamania was dependent on signalling to the beneficiary bashing cohort.
