NUI.NZ was originally establish to run a suite of privately hosted social and community resources (including the likes of Email, Chat, Forums, Album, event management) for friends and family to act as an alternative to the centralized and commercially run platforms of Facebook and meetup.com.
The word “Nui” in Polynesian context means large (Hawaiian, Te Reo Maori, Rapa Nui, Tahitian, )
The site ended up becoming a place to host photos for various social events before eventually evolving to become my personal photo gallery visually documenting the landscapes of Aotearoa New Zealand and forming an integral part of my online identity.
As of 2023 I have since moved the public facing gallery to YOUNG.KIWI (this site) with other services such as Email and forums are still running off of nui.nz and will continue running.
Please understand nui.nz (the domain) is not for sale.
