+  </header>
+  
+  
+  
+  <p>In 2013 <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comet_ISON">Comet ISON</a>, a frozen lump of dust and gas about 1 kilometre in diameter was falling towards the sun. Known as a &lsquo;sungrazing&rsquo; comet, ISON&rsquo;s orbit meant that its 3 million year journey from the outer solar system would end in a perilous encounter with our Star, and no-one knew if it would survive.</p>
+
+<p>On November 28 that year, the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcROVqmF9SY">comet reached perihelion</a> - its closest point to the Sun - and astronomers waited to see what came round the other side. Something did emerge, but it wasn&rsquo;t the comet, it was just a remnant of it, fizzing out as the tidal forces and heat from the Sun pulverised it.</p>
+
+<p>I think what just happened to the political landcape in the UK is a bit like that comet. If the comet, on its long approach to the Sun, represented the political status quo, then its uncertain encounter and subsequent annihilation represents the political chaos that we&rsquo;re now experiencing.</p>
+
+<p>I believe the only thing that can provide any sense of hope for the future of our political system is complete <a href="http://www.electoral-reform.org.uk/">electoral reform</a>.</p>
+
+<p>At the root of the problem is the our First-past-the-post system of electing government; it means that a Party can hold a majority with a relatively small share of votes cast across a few marginal seats. This is the reason why people feel so disenfranchised, and why parties feel they have to do the bidding of the popular press to get into power.</p>
+
+<p>The attempt by the PLP to remove Jeremy Corbyn and move the Labour Party back to the centre ground in order to win power is merely addressing a symptom of the problem. Even if the Blairite side of the party are successful and we get a more right-wing Labour Party in power, a large section of the electorate are going to feel as underrepresented as they do under the centre-right Government we have now.</p>
+
+<p>So, let&rsquo;s have a truly representative Government, one in which no single party has overall control and is made up of broad coalitions that represent the full political spectrum of the electorate. The prospect of parties on the political extremes gaining more power as a result would be bitter pill to swallow, but in my opinion, worth it if more people vote and feel engaged in politics.</p>
+
+<p>For a new form of Government, we&rsquo;ll need a new building. Let&rsquo;s vacate the crumbling Houses of Parliament and commission a new beautiful building for our representatives to assemble in, with a chamber that encourages cooperation across party lines - not the confrontational two-sided design of the Lower House.</p>
+
+<p>Finally, I&rsquo;m not sure where the matter of the possible break up of the Union fits in to all this; I prefer the status quo as far as this is concerned. There&rsquo;s speculation about the emergence of the UK as a federal state but I&rsquo;ll leave that to another post.</p>
+
+<p>Join me next time when I attempt to use a Supernova collapsing into a Black Hole as a metaphor for what&rsquo;s just happened to the Labour Party.</p>

+  <p>You might have seen the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiK7s_0tGsg">Paxman interview with David Bowie</a> from 1999, in which he talks about the &ldquo;unimaginable potential&rdquo; of the Internet for democratising the music industry.</p>
+
+<p>I&rsquo;m lucky to have experienced the Web in its infancy, and the sense that it was the start of a major and positive development in global knowledge-sharing and communication; the important factor being that it was under the ownership of everyone and not a handful of megacorporations.</p>
+
+<p>I wonder what David Bowie thought of the Internet towards the end of his life, and whether it seemed like it was &lsquo;business as usual&rsquo; when it comes to distribution of digital music.</p>

+  <blockquote><p>The Net means personal power in a world of little or no personal power (other than those on the top - who are called powerful because of money, but not because of thoughts or ideas). The essence of the Net is Communication, of personal communication between individual people, and between individuals and those who in society who care (and do not care) to listen.</p>
+
+<cite>Micheal Hauben - What the Net Means to Me</cite></blockquote>
+
+<p>The quote above is taken from an article written 1994, a few years after the invention of the Web and about 14 years before the mass-participation in social media networking sites.</p>
+
+<p>Michael Hauben was an educationalist and researcher who enthused about the empowering nature of the Net as far back as the early eighties. Back then the Net was the collective name for Bulletin Board Systems (BBS), USENET and Email – all distributed electronic communication systems that were accessed through a dial-up connection to non-commercial computer networks.</p>
+
+<p>These were the social networks of the day; not just bringing people together through the sharing of knowledge, but as ‘Netizens’ - a term coined by Hauben - people were using the network to unite for political change.</p>
+
+<p>Of course, the people using the Net back then were a small minority and largely based in the US. You needed expensive hardware and the technical wherewithal to connect to the network, so if you were a Netizen, you were likely to be either associated with a University or work in the telecommunications industry.</p>
+
+<p>Twenty-five years later and now a Netizen is just as likely to be someone under siege by their own government, communicating to the world via Twitter or Facebook about the injustices being inflicted on them be their unelected leaders.</p>
+
+<p>But at the same time as the barriers to participation are being smashed down, we have the specter of control of the Net by both national governments and multinational content owning companies, as well as deep concerns of privacy violations by the same social networks that have enabled the mass-participation in the first place.</p>
+
+<p>These days, the Web is less like a web of connected information (as Tim Berners-Lee envisioned it), and more like nebulous cloud in which great things are being created but there’s also potential for tumult and annihilation..</p>
+
+<p>These issues come at a time when web technology has matured to the point where the open standards of the web can be used to deliver powerful content and tools for democracy to people connected to the network via their phones or other inexpensive hardware.</p>
+
+<p>To look to the future we sometimes have to look to see how things were in the past. Michael Hauben’s vision of the Net in the 80s concerned personal freedom, empowerment and democracy on distributed networks; making the technology work for us.</p>
+
+<p>Every day, we play in the walled gardens of Twitter, Facebook, iOS, Google and Amazon; access is easy but we have neither freedom or privacy there. We are mostly oblivious to this, or at least happy to sacrifice our rights for the convenience of connecting with our friends or buying an eBook with one click.</p>
+
+<p>The Net can offer so much more to society than this, but it’s up to us as Netizens to make it.</p>

+      <description>I quite enjoyed Brian Cox&amp;rsquo;s Royal Institution lecture on the science of Doctor Who. The problem for me though is that Doctor Who is as far from being Science Fiction as the Harry Potter series, which is a shame as it was originally conceived as an educational programme that used time travel to explore scientific ideas.</description>

+      <description>Now that Twitter has gone public we can expect many changes that will keep shareholders happy but annoy long-term users of the site. For me, the addition of embedded images in the timeline breaks something fundamental about Twitter, the idea of creativity through limitation; a tweet is now 140 characters and an image (or an advert). This Greasemonkey script gets rid of the adverts, at least.</description>

+      <description>In 2013 Comet ISON, a frozen lump of dust and gas about 1 kilometre in diameter was falling towards the sun. Known as a &amp;lsquo;sungrazing&amp;rsquo; comet, ISON&amp;rsquo;s orbit meant that its 3 million year journey from the outer solar system would end in a perilous encounter with our Star, and no-one knew if it would survive.
+On November 28 that year, the comet reached perihelion - its closest point to the Sun - and astronomers waited to see what came round the other side.</description>

+      <description>You might have seen the Paxman interview with David Bowie from 1999, in which he talks about the &amp;ldquo;unimaginable potential&amp;rdquo; of the Internet for democratising the music industry.
+I&amp;rsquo;m lucky to have experienced the Web in its infancy, and the sense that it was the start of a major and positive development in global knowledge-sharing and communication; the important factor being that it was under the ownership of everyone and not a handful of megacorporations.</description>

+      <description>If the BBC was a neutral broadcaster working on behalf of the public that funds it ... we might have expected it to broadcast the [mass protest about hospital cuts and the sell-off of the NHS](http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/433173/50-000-people-march-in-Manchester-against-NHS-cuts), brokered by a political party that hasn&#39;t won an election for 22 years. </description>

+      <description>I quite enjoyed Brian Cox&amp;rsquo;s Royal Institution lecture on the science of Doctor Who. The problem for me though is that Doctor Who is as far from being Science Fiction as the Harry Potter series, which is a shame as it was originally conceived as an educational programme that used time travel to explore scientific ideas.</description>

+      <description>Lots of dodgy statistics and skirting round of issues in this BBC Magazine piece. The &amp;lsquo;Safety in numbers in the Netherlands&amp;rsquo; argument is bogus; the reason they have such numbers is because of the level of investment in cycling infrastructure there.</description>

+      <description>Now that Twitter has gone public we can expect many changes that will keep shareholders happy but annoy long-term users of the site. For me, the addition of embedded images in the timeline breaks something fundamental about Twitter, the idea of creativity through limitation; a tweet is now 140 characters and an image (or an advert). This Greasemonkey script gets rid of the adverts, at least.</description>
