So it’s officially unofficial now. Dave Bagler graciously put up a public forum for Green Party types to play in. The beauty is that it is outside the official Party’s control, so you don’t need to bite your tongue, or worry about being critical. Go right ahead, and let it all hang out. It’s brand spanking new, so don’t be alarmed at the lack of content. Just join and add your own. Go ahead and check it out here:
The aggregator is already up and running. Again, it is completely unofficial, so i guess it is an alternate to the members only blogs at the Green Party site. I guess I can comment in passing that the GPC has gotten mighty controlling haven’t they? The forums are not public, which is pretty dense, seeing as there is nothing likely to be said that really needs to be kept secret. I don’t know if anything interesting happens there or not, because as a lapsed member, I don’t have permission to go. It’s not much of an advertisement about the vibrant discourse within the Party to keep the great unwashed out.
And how about those GPC blogs, eh? They are damned ugly. Mostly unrelieved by photo’s, or any graphics elements. Basically just a method of capturing free content, and generating captive traffic to help sell Elizabeth May books. Not a bad thing all told, but I’m happy enough blogging for the whole country to see, not just Green Party membership.
Anyhow, check them out, and let me know what you think.
