This post is a bit random because it has nothing to do with technology. It's about a South Island parrot that the NZTA spotted setting up road cones in front of the Homer tunnel. How is this relevant? Well, it's a Kea, and this company is called "Kea Sigma Delta." Yes, the same Kea that you see in this company's logo is up to its cheeky antics again; here's video evidence:

The Kea is an alpine parrot. It's highly intelligent, curious, good at puzzle-solving, and learns from both experimentation and by example. All traits they share with us scientists, engineers, and creatives. That's why this company is named after them. Here's an example of their problem solving skills:
Another Kea trait is being cheeky and bold. They're often getting up to mischief raiding bins, vandalising cars, and even swiping tourists wallets. We didn't train them to do the last one, honest! I think they get away with more than they should because they look rather cute and are pretty entertaining, even when it's your car they're attacking.
There's no real point to this blog post other than to explain the origins of the company name a bit and share some fun videos. Hope you enjoy them. Just don't feed the Kea or encourage their antics; they're cheeky enough as-is.
Okay, one more for the road:
