After the last election, all the government websites were wiped. That’s how it works. You get a new government and a new archive of information. I’m not sure why they do that? So we can’t quote past history maybe?

Only now, we have the long tail of comments:

Interesting move – Having women say Tony’s words back to him. I should do one with this quote:

“What the housewives of Australia need to understand as they do the ironing is that if they get it done commercially it’s going to go up in price, and their own power bills when they switch the iron on, are going to go up,” Mr Abbott said.

What do you think?

Gratuitious hot guy. Please spell out I.R.O.N.Y before going all politically correct on me.

In 2007 I blogged on Kevin07 portal:

We will see more of ‘static portal hybrid hosted social networks’ for a while – companies and government distancing themselves from the challenges of social networks by outsourcing to social network platforms.

I was left unmoved by Barack Obama – great for fundraising, nary a thankyou in return (and a great wall of silence immediately he won) – so I’m hardly likely to be moved by “I am, I will, I am” tweets from broadcasting polllies in social spaces.

Ah but it could be so much more.

By the way quick question: have you ever had a politician respond on your blog with a comment? Or respond to your tweet? Lemme know?
