As tempting as it may be to pretend, after giving this post such an uncharacteristically snappy title, that David is to perform a series of ostentatious tribute concerts in memory of the great Michael Jackson and his equally great 1987 album, it’s obviously best not to make up silly stories for my amusement.*
Instead, I’ll just say that Blog Action Day (BAD, get it?) is coming ’round again, so I’d like to know what you would like to discuss on 15 October.
The aim of Blog Action Day, you may recall or even guess, is to get people talking about the same issue via their blogs, podcasts, tweets, etc.
Last year, when the theme was Poverty, nearly 13,000 blogs got involved, reaching more than 13 million readers. Some of those blogs, like this one, tallied up some extremely sharp, thoughtful, stirring comments. Thank you, all.
Although you can suggest your own topic, this year’s listed choices are:
– Water and Food Sustainability
– Human Rights
– Gay Rights
– Peace and Armed Conflict
– Climate Change
– Internet Freedom
My vote, not surprisingly, is for Climate Change. I invite you to vote, too.
Oh, and if you’re in the mood for casting votes this evening, I heard through the grapevine that Gala, daughter of Richard Wright and Guy Pratt’s (much) better half, has once again been short-listed in the British Design Awards – congratulations, Gala – so, I don’t know, maybe some of you might want to vote for Viable London, ‘Milton’ range in the British Design of the Year category…?
*Admit it, many of you would snap up tickets.
