What idiocy. If I claim to be representative of men, you'd complain that I'm not including the views of women.
> One of the key issues with NZICT is that they claim to represent the New Zealand IT community, and yet in reality their membership is governed by commercial size
They make no such claim:
"Formed in December 2008 the NZICT Group is an industry association made up of over 80 leading New Zealand ICT companies" - http://ict.org.nz/
By definition, an industry association is governed by commercial size.
