Quiet, too quiet

Well, yes it has been on this blog, which is what comes of trying to get some paid work done and to make some progress with the book.

I’m deep in chapter 3, on the quality of national democracies and initiatives to make them better. It has taken me into research on the UK parliamentary debate on Iraq in March 2003, on to Tony Blair’s serial lying on the issue, and the UK Power Inquiry and some of its related input.

It’s thrown up some interesting sites on leaked Iraq documents, the Trident nuclear debate and the Power Inquiry follow-up. That’s as much as I can give at the moment.

I am hoping to post downloadable work in progress pretty soon, drawing ideas from principles used in the open-source software book The Cathedral and the Bazaar by Eric Steven Raymond. The plan is to offer free downloads of the whole text and the opportunity to buy a hard copy, once it’s finished.

    Good luck with the book – that kind of thing’s never easy when you have to work too!
    “I’m deep in chapter 3, on the quality of national democracies and initiatives to make them better” – this is a positive thing to be writing about, especially as those on the right always accuse those on the left of never offering any solutions to the world’s problems (saying we just complain about them). Good idea to offer the book as free downloads (or one or 2 chapters anyway).
