About this Blog

As Blogactiv Director, I shepherded the blog platform you’re looking at now through its launch phase (August 2007-February 2008). While I left to join GOPA-Cartermill in March 2008, I was asked to keep an eye on Blogactiv from its Board, and so launched this blog to experiment and explore the European online public space and the role that Blogactiv could play in it.

While I left the Blogactiv board in March 2010, the subject continues to fascinate, which is probably why I also helped launch the IABC’s Ning platform and am an editor on BloggingPortal.eu, the EU social media aggregator.

If you want a quick intro to the ideas explored on this blog during these first two years, check out the 2010 Annual Review. This blog is not about me, so check out my LinkedIn profile if you must have my CV. For those without access to Linkedin, here’s a summary.

    To whoever it may concern,

    I write to you on behalf of ECAS (European Citizen Action Service), which is an NGO involved in EU citizens’ rights and civil society issues. At the moment, one of ECAS’ projects is to seek the public opinion concerning the EU Commission’s requirement to ask the signatories of a European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) for personal identification data. As the ‘Mathew Lowry’s Tagsmanian Devil’ blog’s content is related to EU affairs and since you have been monitoring this topic, we thought it might be interesting to ask this blog’s readers their opinion on the matter of personal identification data requirement in the ECIs. People who wish to give their opinion on this matter can do so by clicking here and completing a very short survey. For more information on this subject, feel free to visit the newsflash section on ECAS’ website.
