It’s been an interesting few days during which things have been rattling along and I have struggled to keep up. This is in part because I simply haven’t had the time to devote to this project that James had. Consequently, each time I look, something different has happened. What happened to the magazine layout?
I think, on reflection, the democratic approach has its flaws. The request for naming ideas produced a wealth of interesting names. Many of which I liked and each time I thought “Yeah, I really like that one” someone would come up with another one and I’d think, “yes…”
That said, it looks as if while we were going down the polling route and names were still coming in, a couple of the front runners had already been taken and we don’t want to risk confusion – better to have something as unique as possible.
I do take on board the comments made by Lord T who accused us of doing a Clegg. Cringing somewhat, I have to concede that he has a point. Polling rather than simply choosing from the selection before us was probably making a rod for our own backs – and, whichever we choose, someone, somewhere isn’t going to like it. And we still have to make that final decision.
Ah, yes, welcome one and all to the world of politics and compromise.
To those of you who are contributing, I am posting this using Blogjet. I have always used an offline tool for composing and saving into draft my blogposts. There is less likelihood of losing the post in the event of a crash and it doesn’t over complicate the code in the same way that Word does. So, it’s a thought to bear in mind. It works with all of the major blogging platforms.
