Australian Lefty on Politics, Governance, Science and Info Management

Fire still in the belly

Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-01-19

I’ve been in offline contact with the North Coast Voices team, who indicated that most are retired and the youngest is my age.  They are not only grumpy, but are darn good at digging up ways of making their voices heard outside the blogosphere, both at the federal level, and they local stomping ground in the NSW North Coast.

It’s becoming one of my must-reads.

Let’s hope that other "Silver Surfers" start using the net not just to keep in touch with relatives despite limited mobility, but, like North Coast Voices (especially "clarencegirl"), give our pollies, and us, the benefits of their wisdom.

That’s much more useful than merely being an "angry young man" (or woman), spouting opinions to the net, but not taking action.
