Paul C

Good point about people embracing new technologies during times of crisis.

However, in a way I think it is unfortunate if bloggers are just writing about the latest flavour or media super event just to attract attention.

On a side note I invite you to participate in a meme I introduced today: Life is One Big Top Ten. (2008) Your readers would be interested in reading about your reflections.

I enjoy reading your blog very much.


hello there - interesting local govt example - in my experience local govt - enmass - is inept at engaging with communities over most mediums ... I have first hand knowledge of a major local authority here in Queensland spending gazillions on an online community environment just to have to re-invent it 12 months down the track and I still don't think it works that well.

I can see the value in starting the show off with a bam with the big issue ... but what I love about blog life and the connections is the minutia (?) of life - the little bits and bobs that make things seem real.

Rich totally off topic are you able to speak about your work with Tourism BC (BC ? ) ... would be interested to know how a tourism org plans to use a online community .. if not able to share no dramas - I understand - cheers le


I like to read articles, which are really interesting and informative, and this is exactly about your article. In the past I didn't like to read that much and prefered http://www.pdfqueen.com download and read books from the Internet, but several times I came across worthy articles, and am not that categorical ever since :)
