South African holiday which led to this post… which went on and on too. The basic gist is how to have a long-haul holiday if you’re supposed to be green.

Politics and the internet – a basic point

Whenever I think that the basic understanding of media and the internet *must* have penetrated through most, if not all, levels of society I always seem to get brought up short.

But with the success of the Obama e-election campaign and then the attempts of our various political parties at the last UK election to embrace online campaigning, you would think that British politics has got some idea of the basics. right? right?

Ssee below for an example of local council-level misunderstanding.

I’m sure it doesn’t really matter that much, Mrs Geary… but in future, if you’d like the electorate to get in touch with you, to have a direct line to their representative, to be able to contact you… then wouldn’t it be better to have your own email address and not have to use your husband’s?

Just a thought.
