It's thought the Christchurch Call's refresh is in-line with technology's rapid evolution. 

The call —designed to battle online extremism and hate content— is becoming a foundation. 

Taxpayer funding ends in July. 

Dame Jacinda Ardern will become patron, rather than New Zealand's special envoy. 

Gorilla Tech Chief Executive Paul Spain told Roman Travers that the tech world is a different place since the call began, particularly with AI. 

He says the tools available now are far better and more powerful than in 2019.
