This blog is no longer being maintained. Entries since I started working somewhere in the bureaucracy have been hidden from public view.
With a federal election in the air and the area I’m working in reaching greater public consciousness, I’ve decided that its no longer appropriate to post on the sort of subjects which interest me in a location indelibly linked to my unique identifier. I haven’t got a tap on the shoulder or anything like that – this is self-censorship to avoid any problems down the road.
For all that my organisation has its problems, there is the hope of achieving some incremental gains. I’d hate to put those at risk because some lobbyist was able to plug my name into Google and go full McCarthy. I don’t want Recreational Aviation Australia decrying CASA as the Communist, Anarchist and Socialist Association, or whatever would be appropriate for whereever it is I work.
The pieces that remain here reflect merely my opinions (and not anyone elses) at the time of writing. Maybe they’re still the same, maybe they’ve changed since. Who could tell?
The website will remain because:
- My email addresses are here.
- This is a hiatus, not a closing. If I move somewhere where this risk no longer applies, or a government take office that is willing to stand up for the rights of all citizens to free political communication, then I’ll happily reopen the blog.
- I reckon there are some good pieces here. Feel free to browse the archives.
