Yes we all know about that good old Kiwi No 8 wire mentality being the root of innovation and the start of many a successful Kiwi business. Just recently one great idea which has come to fruition is the "Cocktail-in-a-Box" concept as reported by Stuff.
It's ideas like this that don't we all just sit back and say, hey why didn't I think of that!
The phrase was coined from the British gauge of steel wire popular as a fencing wire and New Zealand's isolation, basically a Kiwi could make anything out of a piece of No 8 wire!
Some feel that Kiwis undervalue their No 8 mentality and others believe this isolation can be harmful to our economy. Either way isn't it great to see Kiwis stand up and "give it a go".
