Let’s deepen MSM-citizen collaboration to ask government for data we can mine, by @Info_Aus

By Rosie Williams, 10 January, 2014 Source:  infoaus.net In this report called Life in the Clickstream: The Future of Journalism, Australia’s Media Alliance discusses the ways in which new technologies and economic events in recent years have put the future of an entire industry under threat. The internet brought with it a cultural expectation that content be free. The separation of online classifieds from journalistic publications to stand alone sites means that papers are left to fund their activities primarily from their readers, readers who are accustomed to the price of their news being subsidised by advertisers. If mainstream media publications survive this ‘perfect storm’ it might only be through changing their […]

Twitterchat today on next moves for CARE (Citizens Against Rorting of Entitlements)

By Rosie Williams Source: infoaus.net 11 November 2013 It is going to be a big week leading into the return to parliament. On Tuesday night 12th from 8pm DST (7pm QLD) I will be running the second #BudgetAus Twitter chat focusing again on the rorts. This is the day our new parliament sits for the first time so it is bound to be an interesting evening. There are 96 responses to the CARE (Citizens Against Rorting of Entitlements) survey. The answers are not mutually exclusive of one another so it is not the case that because more people voted for one option that another option is not also important.  It is safe to say […]

Groundwater: out of sight, not out of mind: @molessarah reports

By Sarah Moles Very wise people have said some crucially important things about water. For me, Leonardo Da Vinci summed it up best with: “Water is the driving force of all nature”.  W.H. Auden comes a close second: “Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.”   Given its essential place in supporting life, it ought to follow that protection of water quality, water sources – indeed the entire water cycle – would be an over-arching principle underpinning responsible and sustainable water management. But it’s not. Somehow, here on the driest inhabited continent, policy apparently trumps principle. It is a policy objective of several of our governments that there will […]

Will the donkeys have a say?

By Angus Barnes 30 August 2013 A ‘donkey vote’ is so-called because it is the vote of fools, but can the donkeys have an impact on this election? While it may appear foolish to number the candidates in the order they appear on the ballot paper and not, for example, in the order of the party’s how-to-vote-card, under the preferential voting system this ‘donkey vote’ is still considered a formal vote. Thus donkeys count. Why do people chose to donkey vote? This is hard to say categorically, but some reasons may be for time efficiency, lack of knowledge of candidates/parties, or a form of protest for voters unhappy with the choices […]
