Personal Website of Fergus Young.
Kia ora, Welcome. This Website serves as essentially a place and digital home on the Web to call my own, a personal primary point of presence on the Internet in which I use to keep in contact with Friends and Family both at home and abroad. My contact details can be found here.
Nui is an Aotearoa (New Zealand) Te Reo Māori and Polynesian (Cook Island, Tahitian, Hawaiian) word for “Big”.
This website back in early 2015 started life as a comprehensive self hosted and privately run alternative to Meetup for family and social circles to arrange hiking trips, social events and outings together, however was not able to achieve sustained ongoing adoption and evolved into my personal photo gallery visually documenting events and landscapes of both Aotearoa and abroad and ultimately became my primary point of presence on line forming an integral part of my online digital identity as it is today.
All publicly accessible photo galleries can be found here.
In the interest of maintaining my own digital sovereignty (as it were), I decided to stay with the old (pre-Facebook) way of having a personal website / homepage as my digital web home in preference to embracing the more common centralized and commercialised platforms of Facebook/Instagram for the posting up of personal photos and the penning of personal thoughts (via sub-site PEAK).
If you wish, you’re welcome to drop me a line by sending me a message either via E-Mail to: fyoung (at) nui (dot) nz, via the contact form, or sign the Guestbook below.
While most of the pictures as found on this website are essentially personal photos taken on my compact camera or phone, people are welcomed to use / share any of these photos around for personal or commercial use (Though please don’t on-sell photos for profit) provided these photos are appropriately attributed (e.g “Photos: Fergus Young / NUI.NZ” is acceptable). Cheers.
Please understand this domain is not for sale.
