Welcome new visitors and blogroll entries

Completely unexpectedly, the Economist referenced this ‘ere blog in a special report about e-government in this week’s edition (last sentence of fifth paragraph down in this article if you’re really interested. But when I say referenced, I mean just about referred to).

Consequently, visits to the site have rocketed. Sunday is usually a low double figures day (not that I check them obsessively you understand…) but the last two days have seen visits well into the two hundreds. I’m astounded and shocked (but not so secretly chuffed).

So welcome all, hope some of you stick around. Let me know if there is anything of particular interest to you and I’ll let you know if I can talk about it.

Also, way overdue, added a couple of new links to the blogroll. Dave Briggs, he of the Information Authority, and seemingly boundless capacity to blog; and Jenny Brown, recently arrived at the Department for Health and a part-time social media goddess. Met them both at the Barcamp and they are great colleagues to know. Hope we can work on something great soon.

    Hi there,

    Found your blog through The Economist. It seems pretty interesting.

    It would be really cool if you had a “Category” that focuses on the use of technology in a development context, whether the development is taking place in the UK or in an underdeveloped part of the world. This is different from looking at how technology can be used to increase public participation in government, although I would imagine the two issues would intertwine.

    Thought I’d put my thoughts out there since you might be in a better position than I to learn of such developments.

    Kudos! That’s a quality name-check, Jeremy.
